Alchymist Nosticova Prague
A firm favourite with the local film industry, Alchymist Nosticova Prague is a 16-room hotel just around the corner from Charles Bridge (Malá Strana side), often becomes home to visiting actors and directors for the duration of their shoot. Each of the apartment-style suites is traditionally furnished, but unlike other ‘traditional’ establishments, these are slightly more refined.
One of the most interesting suites, the Arcimboldo (named after the famous 16th-century painter), houses the hotel’s only four-poster bed and is the romantic room of choice. Standard features such as laundry and room service are available, but although there is none of the mod-cons that most other high-end hotels offer, the staff’s assistance and attention to detail are effortlessly precise, leaving the impulse to relax overwhelming.
On the ground floor of the Alchymist Nosticova Prague, the San Carlo restaurant is a great little Italian creating superb pizzas, making this an excellent choice for families, movie aficionados or anyone wanting a slightly more independent experience.
