I’ve been on the road for a long time now, and I was starting to get a little road-weary, so it was time to recharge. I arrived in Prague with plans to really relax, kick back and rediscover my traveling energy and treat myself to some boutique luxury – and I found the best hotel in Prague to do it in, the Savic Hotel.
Savic Hotel is right in the middle of old Prague – so much so that virtually very sight worth seeing is within walking, or even strolling, distance. Exactly what you want from a city break.
From the outside, Savic Hotel is not immediately striking, largely because it has been developed in sympathy with the old building it obviously once was. However, inside it is more than impressive. The Bohemian glass chandeliers and lamps are amazing, and are everywhere in the hotel, in the rooms as well as the public areas.
No expense appears to have been spared with the little things – the numerous glass doors are all automatic, the lifts are silent and and as smooth as glass. Incidentally, the lifts can only be operated using the room key card, which is reassuring from a security point. And made me feel anything but a broke backpacker! This place is something special.
The siting of the rooms is also part of the sympathetic restoration, in that there are no long corridors with rooms at either side – the rooms are all over the place, with central meeting and seating areas on each floor, again with the glorious lighting. The whole thing left me speechless.
The lighting is continued in the actual rooms, glass table and floor lamps, and another awesome chandelier, and there are lots of plug sockets and wifi in the rooms.
The decorating scheme in the public areas is continued in the rooms. There are parquet floors and dark wood (possibly mahogany) and enormously restful cream shades in the colour scheme. The rooms are quite big – enough room for desks, side tables a wardrobe and a chaise longue without being cramped. The bathroom is blows anything I’ve been using recently out of the water. The shower is a waterfall shower and powerful as hell, and, most impressively for me, the toiletries are from L’Occitaine, all the rage apparently. Good stuff.
Let’s talk food now folks. Brekky time! This quite simply blew my mind. Breakfast was held in a purpose-built conservatory area on the ground floor, an small area of which the designers appear to have made excellent use? Possibly the highlight of my stay here, it is a serve yourself buffet, with staff on hand to serve hot drinks and to clear up, with a huge choice of anything you can imagine from smoked salmon, to fresh fruit. I obviously went for a slightly less classy selection!
Prague itself is such a beautiful city, and with the Savic Hotel as a base, it will give you the recharge you need to hit the road again. Happy travels!
