You go up the street in the head of the coronation parade and at the end this street bends and brings you to Prague Castle walls… and you think to yourself: “do I really need it? I would rather spend this weekend with my sweetheart enjoying peace and serenity at the Design Hotel Neruda.
The remarkable city of Prague is friendly and cosy, despite a myriad of tourists. Neruda, a well designed hotel, is located in the very center at the foot of Prague Castle. It stands on the Nerudova street named in honor of the writer, poet, and journalist Jan Neruda. In the old days, coronation parades took place on the street, starting its course in the lower town and ending at the walls of Prague Castle. The hotel literally stands side by side with the great Castle.
It consists of two differently stylized parts, in two buildings connected by intricate corridors, what no way repels but rather adds intimacy. One of which has newly designed rooms with light and laconic interior. The second one was decorated by designers Borek Sipek and Barbora Skorpilova. In the old and new parts all the rooms are different. There are glass walls in the bathrooms, painted tiles on the floor, oriental carpets, podiums, wooden ceilings, paintings, and some bookshelves. You can see bright reddish-red roofs of old Prague houses through the small windows in the rooms on the top floors. And how pleasant it is to behold these roofs on a warm sunny day after long city-walks.
My short and enjoyable visit to Prague left sweet memories of the city beauty and cosy stay at the Design Hotel Neruda.
