Buddha-Bar HotelPrague, Czech Republic
Prague is a bohemian city reminiscent of Paris circa 1920. So it would make perfect sense to launch a cutting-edge concept in an unconventional location, and that is where Buddha-Bar Hotel comes into play. Located just a few steps from Old Town Square next to St. Jacob's Church, the historic six-floor structure housing the hotel has a modern edge that appeals to travelers of all ages and interests. With just three-dozen rooms and a trio of suites, you can expect the unexpected, with your own Japanese garden for some added zen. Slumber in an oversize dragon-motif jacaranda bed, among a color wheel of red and gold, peppered with ebony accents and alligator-print chairs. Other appointments include espresso machines, gourmet mini bars and televisions exuding a mix of music created by the resident DJ.
You will also find the famed bi-level Buddha-Bar itself, offering an "eatertainment" experience with intimate spaces to dine, lounge and be witness to the unfolding scenery. Dinner is served on the lower floor under dangling chandeliers and the watchful eye of an imposing Buddha statue, while the mezzanine level and lounge is reserved for sipping cocktails and enjoying music. The Siddharta-Café is the hotel's second eatery, offering all-day dining and its own dramatic design. Buddha-Bar Hotel also offers in-room spa treatments or private use of its hammam, whirlpool and list of spa treatments to sooth both mind and body.
