I arranged a surprise trip to Prague for my husband’s 50th Birthday. Neither of us had been before and choose the Art Deco Imperial, due to its wonderful interior design, which didn’t disappoint. I arranged for the hotel limousine to collect us from the hotel, which was an additional luxury but worth the small additional sum over a conventional taxi. It was waiting for us despite the long delays at the airport due to lack of staff and the driver kept us entertained on the hour journey, pointing out the local tourist points and history.
The hotel staff were warm, helpful and friendly. After checking in our bags we headed straight for the hotel restaurant as hunger beckoned. The waiting staff, especially a young man who served us, made every effort to make us welcome and engaged in conversation. The food was good and very reasonable.
Our room lived up to the photo’s on the website. I did a lot of research before booking and the only issue I could find was the shower/bath surround was high and you had to step into the same. This was not a problem for us as we are both tall. If short or infirm this may be a problem, so check before you book as you can choose a room, which doesn’t have this problem, although it was an upgrade and would have cost more.
The hotel supplied a complimentary bottle of champagne with strawberries and a birthday card, which was a lovely thought.
The bed was large and extremely comfortable, one of the best I have slept in. We made use of the hotel spa/steam room, which we basically had to ourselves and utilised the lovely robes. Breakfast was included in the price and was very impressive. There were both hot and cold choices and I can’t think of anything they left out, it set us up for the day!
The hotel was located in a prime location and we were able to walk to most of the tourist spots, which was ideal. We went at the end of April and it was hot, I even had to buy additional summer tops whilst I was there. Although there were alternative hotels set in beautiful grounds, you would have needed to get taxis. The Art Deco was perfectly placed for our weekend break, it gave us the luxury we wanted for the special occasion and the freedom of movement due to its location. We booked everything via British Airways on-line, which was trouble free. After my booking was confirmed I liaised with the hotel direct for special arrangements for my husband and they were extremely helpful and everything went to plan.
