The Belle Époque lives again at Le Palais Hotel Prague, where a 2002 restoration of the original 1897 building created a historically accurate gem. Le Palais rests in the very heart of the city, in a residential quarter known as the Vinohrady, just over a half mile from fabled Wenceslas Square.
Original frescoes still grace the building’s interior walls, but amenities like DVD players, air-conditioning, Internet hookups, and direct-dial phones make Le Palais a twenty-first-century classic of up-to-date, five-star convenience. Sixty spacious guest rooms exude an air of elegance and feature generous marble bathrooms. Twelve lovingly restored suites, some with their own fireplaces, come individually furnished in the Belle Époque style.
