Where to Stay:
- Over-the-top décor that feels very Old World European
- Excellent service and fabulous cuisine
- Located next to American Embassy
- Understated, modern luxe rooms
- Hotel is connected to a monastery where monks brew the famous St. Thomas beer!
- Prime location in Old Town Prague

Know Before You Go:
Prague is super crowded in the summer. Pick a different season to visit: It would be gorgeous in the winter if you pack accordingly with boots and a down coat. My next trip will be in the winter which also happens to be low season.
If you are a classical music fan, Prague has wonderful concert halls within walking distance of old town. My favorite venue is the Rudolfinum a few blocks from the Four Seasons Prague.
Tip: Concerts are a big social event and most Czechs dress up for the evening out with gentlemen in coat and tie, ladies in dresses.
Prague is a very walkable city with gorgeous black and white cobblestone sidewalks. A comfortable pair of walking shoes is imperative!
Don’t forget your sweater – even in June it can be a little brisk.
Prague has wonderful beer and it’s usually cheaper than buying a bottle of water!
