Suites offer views of Prague Castle, and the top-floor Presidential Suite features a separate living space, dining room and kitchenette, with Prague Castle and National Museum vistas.
Ground-floor Alcron Restaurant reinterprets classic Czech cuisine in a plant-forward manner, while handcrafted cocktails are available at the Art Deco-inspired Alcron Bar. A streetside café serves coffee and a rooftop terrace will debut in summer 2024. A fitness centers operates 24/7, with a sauna exclusively for guest use. Signature spa treatments can be performed in guestrooms or in a dedicated wellness room.
To fully embrace the spirit of Prague, Almanac X Prague offers a range of bespoke tours and excursions for guests, like an architecture walking tour and an exploration of Old Town.
