Bottom Line

From top to bottom, the 38-room, five-pearl, Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague has left no detail untouched. A luxurious finish is felt from the on-site restaurant to the full-service spa to the chic rooms; the Asian-inspired style works, never crossing the line to cheesy. Common areas are full of reds and blacks and this color scheme extends to the inviting rooms with posh extras like sound systems, separate soaking tubs and stall showers, and fresh orchids. There is no on-site fitness center, but guests can use one a short walk away for free, and there is free Wi-Fi. The richness of the hotel is accented by its fantastic central location in the Old Town where many sights, restaurants, and shops are within walking distance.

Scene

Upscale hotel with Asian-inspired design that’s lavish yet cozy

The small, dark lobby has a luxurious vibe and Asian-style decor accents such as statues of Buddha

Covered in mood lighting as well as reds and blacks, the Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague has an Asian-inspired design with an air of luxury. Deep red lampshade chandeliers have hanging green pieces while the white molding on the walls and ceiling has golden painted accents. The lobby feels intimate and exclusive with red leather chairs and black antique-style couches while the Siddharta Cafe has a pop art design featuring high ceilings, turquoise chairs, and hardwood floors. Lighting underneath the bar, tea on display in corked bottles, and large, thick-framed mirrors also decorate the restaurant. Etched glass doors allow all the common spaces to flow without interruption and the brown tile floor also helps to connect different areas. Coffee and tea, as well as a bin full of black umbrellas, are available in the lobby. Although the hotel is filled with ornate details, it still feels welcoming and cozy.

Location

On a quiet street in central Old Town

Map of Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague

The Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague is on the corner of a quiet street in the Old Town where many restaurants, shops, and public transportation stops are within easy walking distance. The Gastronomy Museum, Old Town Square, Astronomical Clock, and Palladium Shopping Center are all under a seven-minute walk from the hotel and a rental car is only necessary for those that plan to leave Prague.

Rooms

Chic rooms with Asian-inspired design and an attention to detail

The Superior Room incorporates chic, Asian-inspired decor such as hanging lanterns and a dragon-covered headboard

All soundproofed rooms at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague have Asian-inspired style with orchids that give the room a fragrant aroma. Upon entering the room, guests hear the Buddha-Bar CD music from ceiling speakers, which sets the tone. Rooms have black headboards with dragon designs and thick black wood bed frames along with electronic blinds and Sub-Zero minibars. There is a real attention to detail, right down to the fancy metal handles on the wardrobes and the red and gold hanging lanterns by the beds. Nespresso coffeemakers, free bottled water, and Aquasound systems are in all rooms while upgraded rooms have 30- to 60-minute massages, whirlpool tubs, and free Champagne included in the price. 

Bathrooms are alluring in shimmering red tile with rainfall showerheads in walk-in showers, robes, slippers, and L’Occitane amenities. What looks like a regular mirror actually houses a flat-screen TV within view from the soaking tub and there are contemporary, white bowl sinks on large countertops. Another gorgeous dragon covers the tub while a good-size window lets in a lot of natural light.

Features

Excellent on-site spa and restaurant; free access to nearby fitness center

A full-service spa provides a wide range of treatments and services, as well as a jetted hot tub

With gorgeous brown tile and dragon artwork, the full-service spa is upscale and filled with amenities. A sauna and a steam room are on-site and the facility provides body wraps/scrubs, facials, and massages; in-room massages are available and included in the price of some rooms. There is a large, jetted hot tub, flowing curtains, and a range of L’Occitane amenities that add to the grandeur, and showers have big rainfall showerheads. Wi-Fi is free. Siddharta Cafe, the on-site restaurant, serves French Colonial cuisine and has high-end teas along with a humidor full of cigars. Breakfast at this restaurant is included with some packages, and there is room service, but the hours are limited. This hotel is pet-friendly and for an extra fee, pets can receive their own bed, water bowl, and snack. No fitness center is present at this hotel, but guests have free access to the Fitness Kotva gym that’s a two-minute walk from the hotel.
