Famous for its historic buildings, diverse museums and incredible food, drink and shopping options, Prague continues to be a hotspot for travellers the world over. As central Europe’s political, cultural and economic hub, the Czech capital has been wowing visitors with its rich heritage for more than 1,000 years.
Once the capital of fabled Bohemia, Prague’s history is reflected in the incredible display of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, with the Old Town Square lying at the city’s heart. For a small city, Prague is packed with places to visit and sights to see, all easily accessible on foot, making it an excellent destination for an exciting city break.
Just a short walk from the famous landmarks of Wenceslas Square, the Old Town Square, and the historic Municipal house (Obecní Dum) on nearby Senovážné Square, is the latest concept from Hyatt, Andaz Prague. Combining the spirit of the city’s rich heritage with modern creativity, this five-star luxury hotel is the first Hyatt property in the whole country. With 152 rooms, 24 suites and 5 event spaces, the lifestyle hotel offers a new lavish space unlike any other in which to enjoy the city.
Housed in the former Sugar Palace, this iconic building has been transformed into a hub of design, first-class amenities, and scenic city views. Speaking with the hotel’s General Manager, Doris Hecht, she explains,
“Prague is a charming European city, and I am excited that it is here that Andaz Prague introduces its unique concept of combining luxury with lifestyle. I believe the hotel will enchant travellers from all over the world, letting them know the culture and this beautiful city better. Moreover, the personal style of Andaz Hotel, connecting local and global ambience, will certainly catch the heart of the local clientele.”
As a city known for its spirited nightlife and impressive gastronomic offerings, Prague has something for everyone. Two popular venues for locals and discerning travellers alike are the exclusive ZEM restaurant and MEZ bar, which can be found in the hotel itself.
Combining local ingredients in the form of Czech bistronomy and complemented by a contemporary Japanese Izakaya offering, guests can consider this exquisite avant-garde fare as the opening act of the evening to come. Using charcoal and steam as the primary cooking methods, diners can watch as the kitchen transforms into a theatrical stage from which creative dishes such as; ‘Mackeral, Yuzu Dashi Broth and Japanese Greens’ and ‘Coconut Espuma, Match Sponge, Mango-Maracuya Tartar’ on the Izakaya menu or ‘Pan Fried Salmon Trout, Cabbage, Basil “Halušky, Fish Velouté’ and ‘Hand-cut Beef Tartare and Crispy Bread’ from the Czech Avant Guard menu are delivered. Juxtaposing the aesthetics of Prague’s traditional coffee houses with 1920s retro-futuristic Czech art, literature and engineering, ZEM offers an unforgettable dining experience unlike any other in the city.
With more fun to follow at MEZ bar, guests, locals and globetrotters are invited to indulge in first-class cocktails in a fun and intoxicating atmosphere. The skilled mixologists craft cocktails that pay homage to Bohemia and the power of nature so that you can disconnect, unwind and enjoy the unfolding magic.
For those wanting to continue the evening, Prague offers a wealth of late-night venues, including world-famous jazz and classical music dens, where you can watch some of the best local musicians in a captivating and intimate environment.
After the day is done, guests can head back to their rooms for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Each of the rooms and guest areas has been thoughtfully designed to reflect the myths and legends of Prague’s unique history whilst also upholding unparalleled luxury and comfort. By using the work of Czech artists and artisans combined with contemporary design accents from Madrid design studio, Brime Robbins, Andaz Prague aims to enchant the senses and weave the next chapter in the city’s history.
