Hotel Klarov: An Oasis In The Heart Of Prague

Review of Hotel Klarov | U Zelezne Lavky 12
  • Trip101 Review

Set in a neo-baroque-style, 1890s building overlooking the Vltava River and views of Prague Castle, this elegant boutique hotel sits in one of the most romantic areas of Prague — Malá Strana. Each room in the hotel is designated to one of the world’s most famous musicians or bands who have played concerts in Prague within the last 20 years.

The ideal location for sightseeing and relaxation

Nestled between the Prague Castle and the Vltava River stands Hotel Klárov, inside the Malá Strana area of Prague. Malá Strana is considered one of the most romantic areas of Prague. You can walk to Valdštejnská zahrada (Wallenstein Garden) in under 2-minutes; some consider this to be the most romantic garden in all of Prague. The romantic cobblestone streets, John Lennon Wall, Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, and numerous other attractions are only minutes away. Hotel Klárov is a 2-minute walk from Malostranská metro station, 1 km (0.62 miles) from Prague Castle and 2 km (1.24 miles) from Hradčanská station.

Perfect features in the superb hotel

The complimentary breakfast, located in the lower level of the hotel, is served in a bright dining room. The breakfast buffet consists of a variety of breads, cereal, cheese, meats, yogurt, pancakes, and more. They also have a variety of teas, coffee, and juice available. This excellent breakfast is available from 7:30 to 10:30 every morning and should not be missed.

The hotel contains a lounge area, also on the lower level, featuring a fireplace, TV and games. You can relax with friends, have an evening drink, or watch any sporting events on the TV. The lounge also has a self-serve honesty bar stocked with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, along with snacks available. The summer courtyard garden is a lovely quiet oasis in the middle of the bustling city. The high walls block the noise of the city and the beautiful plants and flowers make the garden a terrific area to relax in and enjoy the warm summer Prague days.

On one wall in each of the rooms is the name of a celebrity, such as Beyoncé, Rolling Stones, Andrea Bocelli, or Plácido Domingo, just to name a few. The hotel tells stories of famous artists, pop, rock, and blues bands and their stay in the Czech capital. All of the rooms offer breathtaking views of either the Prague Castle or Vltava River.
