Envisioned and executed by Czech designer Katerina Kovalovska, the rooms at the Hotel Cosmopolitan are contemporary, while the hotel building itself is historic. Housed within a restored 19th century townhouse opposite its sister hotel, the Art Deco Imperial, the Hotel Cosmopolitan puts you right in the Old Town, a short walk from the Municipal House and, a little further on, the allure of the astronomical clock.
The dozens of Deluxe and Executive Rooms are packed with boutique hotel amenities, and have Swarovski design elements, as well as, for some of them, quiet courtyard views. While modern, comfortable, and offered with service in mind, it’s the suites that really knock it out of the park. After all, it’s hard to resist the opportunity to stay in a suite named “The Gin & Tonic Suite”, which comes with the requisite liquid welcome gift on arrival. The Martini Suite and the top tier Cosmopolitan Suite also do likewise, both of which also offer a chic separate sitting area – the perfect place to kick back with your drink and nibble on treats from the minibar.
Speaking of eating and drinking, the Hotel Cosmopolitan is home to the Next Door Restaurant, one of the hotter dining spots in town, thanks to celebrity TV star Chef Zdeněk Pohlreich being at the helm. Offering fine contemporary cuisine with a Czech slant in luxurious surroundings – Italian architect Luciano Belcapo designed the space to accent the original 1889 ceiling frescoes – the restaurant is open for guests throughout the day, from breakfast to dinner.
And for those feeling the need to work off the delicious dishes – like sautéed rabbit kidneys with mustard sauce, Savoy cabbage, and a potato doughnut, soufflé of cepe with truffle gnocchi, and terrine of white duck liver with gingerbread and pear marinated in tea – there’s an on-site gym. While those looking for something a little more decadent can book in for a massage at the Art Deco Imperial or, if they’re staying in the upper level accommodations, a massage in the comfort of their room.
