Tucked away from tourist hordes, beneath Prague Castle, the Mandarin Orietnal effortlessly transports you to Czechia of yesteryear. An historical aura greets you on arrival and an air of tranquility floats through the buildings.
The hotel is spread across numerous connected buildings, a harmonious canvas of gothic, Baroque and Renaissance eras. The style isn’t vintage, it’s original, including the remains of a 14th-century Gothic chapel below the spa.
Vaulted ceilings and arched doorways are brought up to date with some sleek designer furnishing, creating a haven in a cobblestone area of central Prague. And it’s a hotel that has attracted the likes of the Dalai Lama, Kylie and Madonna.
