10 Best Boutique Hotels Range from a Former Monastery to Art Nouveau Mansions

Prague offers plenty of boutique hotels. Many are located in the Mala Strana, Hradcany or Nove Mesto neighborhoods. Sparkling Art Nouveau facades hide old-world elegance with modern day features. If you crave a room with a view, Hotel Savoy's platinum location, next to Prague Castle, ensures the best panorama of the castle complex and St Vitus Cathedral.

Is your ultimate dream sleeping in a real Hästens? Two hotels on our list, Alwyn Hotel and Hotel Icon, feature these famously comfortable beds of Swedish design. Crisp bed linen and continental quilts heighten the experience. Are you more the high tech type? Hotel Icon has not only Hästens beds, the guestrooms also include Apple computers, iPod docks and safes activated by your fingerprint.

Another highly recommended hotel is U Krale Karla, In the King Charles, not only because of its top location, closest of all Prague hotels to the castle complex, but also for its period furniture and medieval look. Timber ceilings and frescoed walls contrast with twenty-first century luxuries like a sauna, vast bathrooms and topnotch service.
