Surprising Oriental delights at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague
The nation of the Czech Republic is the original home of Bohemian values, Pilsner Beer, and the Vltava River. All three of these virtues come together in the Republic’s capital city of Prague. The Vltava flows gently through the center of the town and divides it into the Old Town and Lesser Prague, though each is equally beautiful, busy, and filled with the charm of the medieval world. Just a short walk east from the centre of the Old Town, where Jakubska Street crosses Rybna Street, the Buddha-Bar and Hotel welcome guests to its luxurious premises. Moderately sized and very exotic, the five-star luxury affair has enough style for several hotels, with bright red décor featuring golden embroideries of Chinese dragons, as well as French Colonial accents. An amazing tribute to Asian concepts in the heart of Europe, the hotel is a vividly unique urban resort, with dark teak wood and glowing Buddha sculptures charming the eye throughout the building. Just a short walk east of the Buddha stands the ultra-modern Kotva Shopping Mall, which itself stands upon the bustling, Victorian-era Namesti Republiky square. In the square, the imposing and palatial Divadlo Hybernia Theatre can be visited. The density of monuments, architectural marvels, and other attractions in Prague is truly astounding, and the Concierge at the Buddha-Bar and Hotel will be glad to help you create a bespoke plan for the exploration of the city, complete with professional guide.
Within the Buddha-Bar Hotel, there are 35 beautifully appointed rooms and 3 luxury suites available. The penthouse options feature more spacious areas with balcony views, and they are known as the Buddha Suite, the Sangha Suite, and the Dharma Suite. Every guestroom of the hotel is splashed with bright reds, the color of prosperity in Feng Shui, and the hotel also boasts state-of-the-art digital technology throughout the facility. The hotel offers its guests the services of the Spa Suite, which features Jacuzzis, Turkish hammam, and a steam room, along with beauty treatments and massages, with a line of L’Occitane designer beauty supplies. The hotel has partnered with Fitness Kotva to provide a fitness centre for its guests, and porters will gladly point guests to the Kotva Mall, which is within sight of the Buddha, to the east down Jakubska Street.
