My wife and I stayed at this amazing boutique hotel in late May 2011. We arrived late in the evening, approximately 11:30pm, and were welcomed by friendly and attentive staff. Due to our late booking and arrival, they did not have our room class available, but smiled and said that they would upgrade us to a top suite with no additional charge (Right-On!!!). While they were preparing the room for us and taking our bags from our car, we were escorted into the main floor lounge for a tasty and colourful welcome cocktail. The friendly concierge collected us after about 20 minutes and showed us to our room. The smell of incense, mood lighting, and buddha-bar music playing through-out the suite, immediately put a smile on our face and relaxed our mood. The concierge took the time to show us around the suite, locating the built-in fridge and bar for us, demonstrating the built-in Bank & Olufsen surround audio/video system, remote curtains, and mood lighting. Truly this is a technology-lovers dream room.
The facility and room décor is modern-oriental, certainly a departure for Prague The room had hardwood floors, area rugs, luxurious finishings, massive spa tubs, glass rain showers, automatic sanitary toilets, and so many other pleasing touches, like the increasingly rare bit of chocolate on the pillow at turndown. One of the best beds we have slept in!! The noise from outside bustle (being only a stone-through away from the main square) was non-existant. There is a small gym and spa for a bit of daytime rejuvenation. The Siddhartha Café on the main floor serves an eclectic international cuisine at more or less all hours, and is where we ate our fantastic breakfast.
This is one of those hotels where the execution essentially transcends the concept. One can even imagine greatly enjoying the Buddha-Bar Hotel without ever setting foot in the famous Buddha Bar itself. But we recommend that you visit the Buddha Bar at least one evening, as the experience is like not other. Go late, as you will be the only people there if you arrive before midnight!!
Although a bit expensive, it is well worth the money. We originally planned to only stay one night, but ended up re-arranging our trip to stay 4 nights, as we felt so at-home during our stay.
