Travel Blogs from Prague
As I mentioned earlier - my dear angel has relatives who live in Prague: Inka and Michal (Inka's son)...Inka graciously offered to show us around, so we spent quite a bit of time in the city with her...she was telling us stories and filling us with various details that cannot be found in books...it was interesting to see Prague through the eyes of …
We arrived in Prague on the overnight train from Frankfurt right on schedule - shortly before 10 o'clock in the morning...I was looking out of the window and noticed that after we passed Dresden the countryside was becoming prettier and prettier, and then the names of the stations were appearing in a different language...we were not in Germany …
... feel better. I emailed the lawyers and I got a few great responses and I also emailed my travel insurance to see if I would be covered for this situation. It doesn't say so specifically in my statement, but it could be interpreted a certain way I suppose. Then I went back to my room. There was not a lot more I could do about it. After speaking to my mum and sister I was feeling much better about it too. At least I wasn't hurt, at least I didn't pay the entire amount, ...
... t forget to mention as well, the view from the castle is GLORIOUS! I'd live there with a huge bay window, easily!
After having been through the castle, we were off to the hotel to change into more dressy attire for the evening. Then, of course with the last evening in Prague, we had to hit ultimate in class. So, all dressed up, we stopped at a fancy restaurant in Wenceslas Square for dinner. I had tomato soup, and duck leg with potato dumplings ...
... my way up to the castle which was perched on a hill. I enjoyed great panoramic views in many directions. I enjoyed the fact there were fewer people here than the main castle. The grounds were more park space than buildings. The most prominent building in the grounds was of course a church, in this case the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul, unfortunately it was closed so I didn’t get a look inside.
After leaving here ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The ICON Hotel & Lounge Prague
A by all means Unique Hotel!
August 2007, Thessaloniki, Greece
We stayed at this beautiful hotel for only three nights, but we could stay for ten more days, if we had the chance! Very personal hotel with friendly and helpful personnel. Great beds and delicious allday-long breakfast! Highly recommended for everyone who visits Prague and wishes for an unforgetable stay!
Albergo unico ed eccezionale
Sono stata in milioni di alberghi ma l'Icon è stata un'esperienza davvero superlativa. La posizione è proprio nel centro di Praga. Il personale è incredibilmente gentile, disponibile ed efficiente. Clientela elegante e alla moda. Cucina e cocktail eccellenti. Ottima musica. Se visitate Praga dovete assolutamente provarlo. Scrivetemi pure per informazioni.
La migliore esperienza possibile per viaggiatori esigenti
Albergo molto ben pensato. Ottima attenzione al servizio, al design, al riposo. Tutte le camere hanno letti Hastons, i migliori al mondo. La hall fa sentire come a casa. Personale eccezionale, ben addestrato, molto cortese, e mai invadente. Colazione tutto il giorno: perché non ci aveva mai pensato nessuno? Altamente raccomandato, arricchisce l'esperienza a Praga.
da ich selber in den reisebranche taetig bin & staendig fuer kuenstler die tollsten design hotels moeglichst zentral finden muss, bin ich zugegeben verwoehnt & arg waehlerisch. mich nervt wie ich staendig 150-200 euro bezahle fuer den namen & die sterne und dann doch auch im ibis haette schlafen koennen. ich hab auch noch nie einen bericht geschrieben, aber das icon hat mich tatsache total verzaubert & ich wuerd es allen prag besuchern wuenschen sich das hotel nicht entgehen zu lassen.
Again, I (we!!!) was (were) very impressed. Best hotel I´ve seen in Prague
Two weeks ago, my girl-friend and me spent some time in Prague. I know The Icon from a former visit.
And now, I want to share this great experience with the woman of my heart;-)
We have two nights on those fabulous Hastens beds, relax three days in Prague and enjoyed the all day breakfast and the excellent skills of all employees.
Especially the GM, Nah-Dja and his Resident Manager, Stanislav are the most fitting persons to those key positions.
They not only know every wish or thought of a gueat, the make them happen!!!
I / we will always come back with good memories and can highly recommend this hotel to all Prague visitors!
I visited Prague May 27 to 31 and truly loved my stay at the Icon. I booked only a night or two because I wasnt sure I'd love it but soon realized the jewel I happened upon and extended my stay. I'm sure there are a few excellent small boutique hotels in Prague with spectacular rooms and amenities like the Icon, but like many things in life, it comes down to people.
Das perfekte Stadthotel
Auf Empfehlung sind wir in das neu eröffnete ICON Hotel nach Prag. Es war eine tolle Empfehlung! das Hotel ist nicht ganz billig, aber es ist das Geld wert. Nur ca. 250m bis zum Wenzelsplatz. Also perfekt für die Stadterkundung. Was uns besonders gefallen hat ist der Servicegedanke im Hotel. Sie erfüllen Dir jeden Wunsch, geben tolle Tips fürs z.B. Abendessen und Stadttour. Besonders toll war auch das verlängerte Frühstück, dass man rund um die Uhr einnehmen kann. Im Erdgeschoss ist übrigens ein Massagesalon, super schön eingerichtet und für passables Geld kann man aus verschiedenen Massagen wählen. Toll. Wenn wir nach Prag kommen, dann nur wieder hier her. Es hat uns super gefallen. Keine Einwände. (Es wird Englisch gesprochen und mit etwas glück auch Deutsch)
Best Experience for funky travellers
Very well thought off hotel. Great attention to service, design, sleep. All rooms have Hastons beds, the best in the world. Theatrical lobby that makes feel like home. Amazing staff, weel trained, very polite, yet not on your face.
All day breacfast!!! Why no one did this before??
Highly recommended, adds to the experience of visiting Prague
Amazing and unique hotel
i have stayed in zillions of hotels but the Icon was truly a superb experience. Location is smack in the middle of old Prague. The staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and efficient. Chic and trendy clientele. Fabulous cuisine and cocktails. Great music. If you visit Prague you MUST give this place a try. Feel free to email me.
Perfect Personal Perfection!!!
Stayed three night at The Icon Hotel in Prague and from the moment of arrival (lady bellboys, sorry bell-ladies) to whole day breakfast,
the personal reception by the manager, the modern interior and the suberp location makes the Icon the best place to stay. Connection for
Ipod and Apple computers (finaly a hotel in Prague who uses/offers Apple compatability). They have the best beds I ever slept on in a hotel, they told me that the Kind of Sweden sleeps on the same bed!
I will return!!!
