The Maximilian Prague aims for the same kind of comfort and style as its sister hotel, the Josef , but adopts a slightly less self-conscious air – think Small Luxury rather than Design Hotel. Reconstructed throughout 2005, the hotel offers 70 rooms and one suite. Josef designer Eva Jiricná has worked the Maximilian Prague into a sweeping amalgamation of Art Deco, Modernism and contemporary design styles. A colourful library, snug drawing room (with fireplace) and glass-roofed breakfast section provide comfortable public spaces.
The guest rooms are similarly inviting with their Eileen Grey tables, swooshes of blue and orange across neutral colour schemes and a range of conveniences (rain showers, telephones, ISDN/WiFi, satellite TV). The emphasis is very much on personal service here, and with a dedicated Sabai spa downstairs (complete with therapy rooms, flotation centre and Thai massage), the Maximilian Prague is a great place to unwind.
