Prague Palace
We upgraded to a suite and had a fantastic room overlooking the inner courtyard. Quiet, while being right in the middle of where you want to be in Prague. The staff, at every level, was great - very accommodating from luggage to parking and information at the front desk. Even with the chaos of the street outside being renovated, they made everything work. We will return to Prague and will stay at Pachtuv again.

Its a top quality hotel for a reason. The history (Mozart's favorite place), location (stone's throw from the Charles Bridge), beautiful rooms, great staff and good restaurant made this a beautiful stay

Exquisite and luxurious!
I went back to Prague last week for the second year in a row and there was no question where to stay. Pachtuv Palace is not only exquisite with the detail of service they provide but it is convenient it location, as well. Such a beautiful hotel with great staff and beautiful views on the city. I will be back time and time again to experience the city and more of this lovely hotel!
