In the heart of Prague's historical Staré Mesto neighborhood – otherwise known as Old Town – with its medieval structures and cobblestone walkways that have made the city center a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you wouldn't necessarily expect to find a shining example of modern design and architecture. Yet with Hotel Josef, designer and architect Eva Jiricna has managed to create a sleek and contemporary hotel that manages to blend with Prague's rich and colorful history.
Near many of Prague's most famous landmarks, including the Charles Bridge, Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock, Hotel Josef is ideally situated for exploring the narrow streets and alleys of this exciting and dynamic city.
The thriving arts and culture community that made Prague the capital of Bohemia during the 14th is still alive today, and with its beautifully designed rooms and spaces, Hotel Josef capitalizes on the creative spirit that makes the city so unique. The hotel is even home to the annual Prague Writers' Festival, one of the most notable literary events in Europe.
The stunning architecture and bold colors of Hotel Josef will aesthetically accentuate your visit to Prague. Hotel Josef's modern touch includes complimentary iPod docking stations so that you can listen to your favorite tunes while lounging in your room, as well as Zen Asian Wellness massages to re-energize after a long day of walking and discovering all that Prague has to offer.
For those with a love of design and a desire to explore the heart of a city, Hotel Josef shouldn't be missed! AB
