True Italian Luxury Found!
Located in the center of the city, the prestigious Carlo IV Prague five-star hotel embodies true Italian Luxury and class in a gorgeous palatial structure built in the neo Renaissance style; the building, by A. Wolf, is considered one of the most interesting buildings of the late 19th century in the Czech lands. The building was originally a bank and was renovated into a luxury hotel by the outstanding Italian architects, Maurizio Papiri and Adam D. Tihany; the original bank vault was converted into a bar, where you now can sip on noble spirits and try outstanding cigars. The former terminal hall of the bank is now the grand hotel lobby; architects have restored the grandeur of the building and it is evident in the precise attention that was paid to details, details such as restored frescoes, the grand staircase and alabaster Doric pillars. The hotel features a top restaurant and a bar, which are also located in the former operating premises of the bank. The modern addition to the hotel was created at the beginning of the 21st century by Prague design atelier DaM and talented Czech architects Richard Dole and Petr Malínský. The Modern addition features glass elements with green and red leaf decorations, fitting as the Italian word boscolo translates to small forest in English. The two buildings blend together to create architectural harmony with the old and the new; the renovated complex was awarded the Building of the Year 2004. Together with the historical building and the modern addition, the hotel features 152 elegant rooms.
The Carlo IV Prague is located in between the hip, bustling New Town and the whimsical, charming Old Town. The hotel is in the heart of Prague and is within close walking distance to all major Prague attractions, most notably the gorgeous Art Nouveau Municipal House, the Gothic Powder Tower and the famous Old Town Square. The Prague State Opera House is a mere five minutes' walk from the hotel.
