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 welcomes 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.
An Oriental Place in the Heart of a Medieval City
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.
A Grand Tour of the Bohemian Town
Visitors who arrive in Prague are faced with an imposing task; how to get the most out of the glorious home of Bohemian culture. The staff of the Buddha will be glad to help, and a quick survey of your interests with the Concierge will lead you to the itinerary that suits your energy, your interests, and your schedule. Among the popular spots for visits are the Charles Bridge, where all of Prague strolls together at sunset, and the Prague Castle, which encloses the St. Vitus Cathedral to the northwest, on the hill above Lesser Prague. Lesser known but equally exciting venues are the Kafka Museum by the river, the Metronome Sculpture in Letenska Park (a giant timepiece that replaced a monument to Stalin, in an example of Bohemian poetic justice), and the Old Town Square, the Staromestske Namesti. The hotel will welcome you back to your room with a fine meal at the Siddhartha Café, an Asian and French Colonial fusion establishment with a fine selection of meats and seafood. The multiple menus are all excellent, and include three-course and five-course options. The Buddha-Bar and Hotel is designed to serve your every need while you are in Prague, in a setting of delightful cultural playfulness, and you can expect the best during your stay there.
