Mandarin Oriental, Prague

A luxurious medieval escape in Prague

Conveniently located in the very heart of Malá Strana — home to Prague Castle and St. Nicholas Church — Mandarin Oriental, Prague offers a luxury escape within a bustling part of the city.

Housed within a former Dominican monastery with roots in the 14th century, this elegant hotel is an architectural delight. Its eclectic mix of original Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance styles is complemented by modern East-meets-West décor. Expect preserved church features and authentic medieval artifacts alongside Asian-style furnishings and chic Czech chandeliers.

Factor in the superb restaurant, the converted chapel spa and the general aura of tranquility, and the Mandarin Oriental quickly stands out as a one-of-a-kind and luxurious place to stay in Prague.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Considering its place at the heart of Malá Strana, the Prague hotel is surprisingly quiet. Its side-street location and thick stone walls make it a peaceful retreat from the tourist crowds.
  • Nowhere on the property is more peaceful than the cloister garden. This centerpiece of the original 14th-century Dominican monastery is a lovely, secluded spot for a sightseeing time out.
  • Sneak a peek inside the majestic Grand Ballroom. Once the refectory of the monastery, this event space remains one of the hotel’s most remarkable rooms.
  • The knowledgeable concierges at Mandarin Oriental are all Les Clefs d'Or certified and are always on hand to recommend and arrange activities around the city.
  • Don’t miss the wonderfully soothing spa, uniquely set within a former chapel.

Things to Know

  • The entrance to the luxury hotel can be a little tricky to find. The main gates are at the northeast of the complex, at Harantova and Nebovidska streets.
  • Mandarin Oriental, Prague is at its busiest between May and August, so if you plan to visit in the summer, book early. The restaurant can also fill up in January and February during a citywide food festival.

  • Due to an exclusive partnership, hotel guests can enjoy special privileges at the nearby Lobkowicz Palace within Prague Castle, including a chance to meet the Lobkowicz family.

The Restaurant
