Paris Hotel

This neo-Gothic hotel building with expressive elements of Art Nouveau was built in 1904. In 1991 the hotel returned to the Brandejs family, whose hotelier tradition has now a 150-year history. The hotel boosts a total of 86 luxury rooms. For the comfort of our guests we offer the legendary Café de Paris cafe and French & traditional Czech gourmet Restaurant Sarah Bernhardt, but also the Wellness & Spa Centre with Thai massages.

Hotel Paris was built by the renowned architect J. Vejrych in 1904, the hotel interior was designed by A. Pfeifer, and the ceramic mosaics used mainly to decorate the hotel restaurant’s interior are by J. Köhler. Hotel Paris has preserved its unmistakable look of a First Republic, pompous neo-Gothic building with bold elements of Art Nouveau for almost one-hundred years.

Until the end of the 1950s Hotel Paris was considered a symbol of

success and wealth for the city of Prague together with several other buildings. However, over the following years the Hotel was condemned to merely surviving. Nevertheless, Hotel Paris was declared a historical monument in 1984 and was thus rightfully added to the ranks of the most notable monuments in Prague. After the “Velvet Revolution,” in 1991 this historic hotel returned back to the Brandejs family in restitution.

However, it is a pointless effort to try and characterise Hotel Paris, which was well described and with greater confidence in a fit of light impression by writer Bohumil Hrabal in the book “Obsluhoval jsem anglického krále” (“I served the English King”). The words of the main hero speak to us in a language full of admiration and respect: “Hotel Paris was so beautiful that I almost fell over. So many mirrors and so many brass banisters and so many brass door knobs and so many brass candleholders and so polished that it resembled a golden palace.”
