The Emblem Hotel, Prague, where the Town Square and Bohemia come together
The city of Prague has been home to emperors and the capital of the Czech people for over one thousand years, and the city wears its history with beauty and pride. The Vltava River flows through the heart of the town, and eighteen bridges cross its span, none more beautiful than the Charles Bridge, the walkway where visitors and locals alike take in the views of the Greater and Lesser Prague and stroll in companionable ease. In the heart of the Old Town, the statue of the medieval hero Jan Hus stands proudly before the St. Nicholas Cathedral, and within a few minutes’ walk to the west, the deluxe hotel called the Emblem awaits its clientele.
The Emblem is a massively creative endeavor, occupying a five-story building and dedicated to Bohemian pleasures, with designers such as Aglas Furniture and Cattalan Italia, among many others, contributing to the style and flair of the establishment, all based on a theme of Art Deco. Commissioned works from renowned Czech artists hang on several walls at the Emblem, and the hotel offers its guests a living area called the Maharal Club, located downstairs and dedicated in true Czech style to the comfort and entertainment of the guests. The Club features a Pantry, where the displayed art constantly changes and guests are welcome to use the oven, a modernist and spacious Salon, a Fumoir or smoking room with a “Self-Service” bar, and a Drawing Room for business purposes.
Elegance, Style and Great Hospitality
The Emblem provides 59 rooms to its clientele, which includes four junior suites and three luxury suites, named the Suite Terrace, the Suite Library, and, with the finest view on the estate, the Atelier. The Fully Accessible Suite is designed to meet the needs of disabled guests. Marble décor fills the bathrooms, as well as rainfall showerheads, and about half of the suites feature balconies overlooking bustling Platnérská Street, with the Cathedral and the Old Town Square just in sight to the left, in the east. The M Spa, located on the rooftop, can provide four treatment rooms, one of which is a couples room, and all guests of the Emblem enjoy complimentary access to the Wellness Centre, which features a sauna and steambath, a Kneipp Path as well as an Ice Path and a Jacuzzi.
A Long Look at the Beautiful Old City
The Concierge of the Emblem is proud of the city and the culture of Prague, and bespoken tours of the both the popular and little known attractions of the city can easily be created, depending on your interests and energy. The Hotel can introduce you to the Arts Walks, created in partnership with Prague’s own Are Organization, or the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, held annually in the summer. One little known but powerful attraction is the Metronome sculpture in the Letenska Park to the north, a gigantic timing device set on the pedestal that once upheld a huge statue of Josef Stalin, suggesting that the vanity of every tyrant will surely be erased by time.
After a long journey around Prague, by foot or on the well-designed Metro system, guests can enjoy a fine meal at the Emblem, where the George Prime Steak Restaurant will provide guests with perfectly aged Black Angus beef, including all of the best cuts, such as a 32-ounce Porterhose, as well as several great cocktails. And after a few drinks at the Fumoir in the Maharal Club, guests of the Emblem will find that they have enjoyed the unsurpassed luxury comforts that only a deluxe hotel can provide, in the heart of the great capital of Bohemia.
