hotel Alchymist Prague Castle Suites
/ Praha 1 / Czechy
The left bank of the Vltava was traditionally populated by those who longed to be as near their sovereign as possible, to serve him, to be seen and to take full advantage of their position. These precious plots of land, situated immediately beneath Prague Castle, were the preserve of the nobility, wealthy builders, craftsmen and artists of all kinds, who either built or bought houses here; houses which for the most part still exist today.
And even in the hustle and bustle of modern Prague the charming maze of quiet, medieval streets below the Castle has preserved its exclusive feel. The new luxury Prague hotel situated in the historical mansion “At the Turk's Head” is surrounded by palaces of the former nobility; the wonderful castle gardens are literally a few steps away from your front door and the parliament of the Czech Republic is housed only a couple of doors down the street.
The house “At the Turk’s Head” has had many owners in its history; of particular interest were two extremely talented artists who lived and left their mark here, namely the famous Baroque painter, Petr Brandl, and one of the most prominent representatives of Czech Art Nouveau architecture, Josef Fanta, who reconstructed the house in 1903.
CONCEPT OF THE ALCHYMIST PRAGUE CASTLE SUITES
Mr Giorgio Bonelli, owner of the Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa and the Alchymist Prague Castle Suites, understands that many visitors to Prague would appreciate a different style of accommodation than just another hotel, even if it were a five star hotel with all imaginable amenities.
He has therefore decided to open his own private residence, situated in the historical quarter immediately below Prague Castle, for those who would appreciate the combination of history, romance, culture and individual service of the highest quality, all under one roof. The charming historical mansion, “At the Turk´s Head”, will become your home from home, where you can enjoy reading by the open fire, with a glass of wine, a private concert in the Music Room, or even a sumptuous dinner served in one of the beautifully restored lounges or in your suite.
Butler service and 24 hr reception will ensure that your needs and wishes are met and your stay with us will become all that you could have wished for.
