Lindner Hotel Prague Castle Sits on Same Site as 12th Century Monastery

0
Located on the same premises of Prague’s Strahov Monastery, which dates back to the 12th century, the Linder Hotel Prague Castleis a great lodging location for those who want to be a bit out of the city center but still convenient enough to get to the activities and attractions you’d most likely to see. The hotel is only a five minute walk from a tram stop, and only two kilometers from both Prague Castle and from St. Vitus Cathedral, the resting place of Wenceslas and other saints — it took me about 20-30 minutes to walk to Charles Bridge at a steady pace, but you can take the tram, catch an uber or a taxi if you’re not much of a walker.
The rooms are trendy and chic with a modern motif throughout, from the lobby to the hotel rooms, all of which have a slightly different design and they range from standard to suites, with business category upgrades, which we had — the main difference is more space and we had breakfast included as well. Suites add sitting areas, while upgraded suites add living rooms with sofa beds and extra TV’s. All of the rooms have coffee makers (better than average coffee too) and a minibar, which I rarely use.

Below is a shot of a Junior Suite….

They have 138 rooms in total and if you’re into quirky fun facts, know that if you book a room here, you’ll be officially staying in an authentic UNESCO World Heritage Site.

My favorite part of the hotel is the lobby and lounge sitting areas on the ground floor; the flavor is modern and sophisticated with plenty of interesting artwork and design elements scattered throughout, including a book case with artsy, urban and historical books, a massive sky light and elegant statues that all aim to impress. In some parts of the lobby, they have the original 16th century wood panelling.

There’s a local Czech restaurant on the premises and a bar in the lobby area where you can get beer, cocktails and coffee. Surrounding the bar is a piano which I played one evening and a variety of unique vintage-style furniture and arched ceilings. There’s also a spa on-site, which offers beauty and wellness treatments, including classic massages and facials. For those who keep an exercise schedule while on the road, there’s both a gym and a sauna so you don’t need to step out of your routine too much while traveling.

And yes, it’s set on the grounds of a 16th century monastery so the architecture in the surrounding area is incredible. Another lovely thing about the hotel is that it’s steps away from a park which you can walk through and within ten minutes or less, you’ll find yourself at the site of the “Prague Eiffel Tower“.

The best thing about the place however is that it’s quiet because it’s so far out of the city center and the architecture and decor inside the hotel main lobby and sitting areas is out of this world.

Wellness

Since I care a lot about wellness and keeping mind/body/spirit in balance, especially on the road, I thought it was worth mentioning that the Lindner has a gym with training equipment and a sauna on the premises as well. Apparently a tennis court is available for us during summer months as well, which I didn’t inquire about, largely because my schedule was too busy to take advantage of it. They have a spa on-site too, which I also didn’t have time to experience — I looked into it briefly and learned that they offer massages and facials and require reservations.

The below shot was taken immediately as you step out of the front doors of the hotel. Cute, right? Two thumbs up – we would definitely stay here again!
