We stayed at the Alchymist for only two nights (30 June - 2 July), however the relaxed environment made it seem as though seconds extended to minutes and into hours.
The architect and design both internally and outside was inspiring, with each room and public area crammed with individual touches, opulent furnishings and five star suites and service.
Our driver Peter was efficient, polite and extremely helpful, he was waiting for us when we arrived, ushered us effortlessly into the car and engaged in conversation during our journey.
We were greeted outside of the residence and taken into an exclusive and very intimate reception area where a welcome drink awaited us.
We were then escorted around the residence and introduced to the public areas, the library, health spa, breakfast room, to name but a few.
The suite we selected, after much deliberation (spolit for choice) had fabulous views over the courtyard and up to Prague Castle from the terrace.
Breakfast is an experience in itself, very attentive staff who will go out of their way to make you feel special.
Wine and cheese was also served late afternoon - early evening and soft drinks in the mini bar suite are also complimentary.
The sauna and jacuzzi down in the vaults was so relaxing. I had the entire area to myself, the staff had run the water and set the temperature perfectly for my arrival and had lit probably thirty tealights to set the ambience.
The location is also perfect with a gentle 2-3 minute stroll to a beautiful town/courtyard area with restaurants and bars. Only 5-10 minutes walk to the bridge which connects the two areas of Prague.
I cannot recommend this residence enough. If you are looking for a tailored, romantic or even independant traveller stay, then Alchymist is certainly the retreat. I am sure that families would also find the spacious accomodation and friendly service a perfect choice also.
