Great location in Mala Strana, more charming than on the other side of the river. The hotel combines the architecture of a monastery with modern elements and Asian touches in the decoration. It works well and creates an elegant, stylish and relaxing atmosphere.
I had a room (Mandarin Deluxe) in the new wing and it was great: high-class decoration, spacious, garden terrace, good lighting and HiFi, large limestone bathroom. The room looks much better than on the Web site (I think MO should rethink its Web site and brochures). Rooms in the old wings can be more quirky, unless you go for the top categories.
The fitness room is large and well equipped. The spa is in a separate building and the wet area is unfortunately only accessible if you book a treatment (expensive).
The hotel has a good and stylish bar. Lunch at Essentia was just fine, nothing special. The breakfast buffet was better and had a few good local dishes.
Service is as good as you will get in Eastern Europe, but this is not an Asian MO experience.
So far, the best hotel in Prague, better than the blander Four Seasons, the only other luxury option in town.
