Historical Traveller Reviews of Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa

20th - 23rd November

from Rozel
Having booked the Alchymist solely based on recommendations posted on this forum (from people I had never met before), we were not dissappointed. In fact we were absolutely delighted. As a surprise for my husband's 50th Birthday I had booked the 3 night honeymoon package including a 3 course à la carte dinner, his and hers full body massage, junior suite accommodation with flowers, fruit and bottle of wine.
As a further surprise, I had also requested to be picked up from the airport in the hotel's 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. My husband thought we had to go and join the taxi queue, so imagine his face when we were met by Peter, the chauffeur who took our trolley and proudly pointed out our superior transport! We felt like royalty and were whisked to the hotel in comfort in about 20 minutes.
Greeted by doormen and porters and very friendly reception staff, we were given a brief tour of the ground floor and then shown to our rooms: The suite was magnificent, HUGE gold and silver 4 poster bed, chandeliers and mirrors everywhere, loads of storage space, 2 flat screen TVs and 2 dvd players, marble bathroom and lots of fluffy towels, bathrobes etc.
Entering the spa in the basement is like entering a different world - a beautifully designed labarynth and so tranquil. I used the facilities on 2 out of our 3 evenings: had the pool and sauna to myself on both occasions and was offered the choice of bubbles or massage jets by the attendant. The Balinese his and her massage was very good and wonderfully relaxing. Unfortunately, did not have time to try out the sushi bar.
We did, however, dine in the restaurant which was part of our package and had the pick of anything from the à la carte menu. The food was excellent and in our opinion, far better than Kampa Park.
Prague is a beautiful city and having walked everywhere for the 3 days, it was wonderful to be able to return to such an oasis of comfort and luxury at the end of the day. We returned, albeit reluctantly, to the airport in the "Roller" and this really rounded off beautifully what had been a fabulous few days. The Alchymist definitely had the "Wow" factor. We would highly recommend the hotel and can't wait to go back.

Wonderful

from billymax
Very very hard to fault - a wonderful 3 night stay and we (2 couples) highly recommend this hotel. The faultless service commenced at Prague airport with their chauffeur greeting us, taking our luggage and whisking us by Jeep to the hotel in less than half an hour.

Splendid spotless deluxe rooms awaited , one with a four poster bed. Linen, towels , robes , slippers, bathrooms, bed, flat screen TV (with BBC1 & 2), DVD player and free plug in broadband excellent, plenty of hanging space and drawers, great housekeeping, turndown service and tasty hotel chocolate.

Spa looked great but didn't have time to use it. Breakfast was good and plentiful- a small criticism - coffee and fruit juice not the best( - having said that the coffee wasn't very good anywhere in Prague)

Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. The hotel is in a good , very quiet safe location adjacent to the US embassy and an easy and enjoyable 5 min walk to the Charles Bridge.

Didn't use the hotel restaurant but it looked very nice. The hotel has lots of interesting chandeliers,antiques,statuary , paintings and furniture (some may think it a little OTT - but in the context of this hotel its quite perfect) .The courtyard is very pretty and must be quite delightful in the summer for breakfast, dining drinks etc...

Prague was an enchanting weekend break and a treasured memory largely because the Alchymist was such a wonderful and warm base to return to. We walked everywhere.

Leaving the hotel was a wrench , the desk staff waived us off wishing us both a safe journey home and an early return to the Alchymist ............and just as we had started our break......the hotel car whisked us back to the airport in style and comfort. For smaller parties with less luggage the hotel will transport you by Rolls Royce.

We will return.

Wonderful time at the Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa

from alexmasucci
We have just returned from a 3 week European vacation Paris, Prague and London. The most memorable of the 3 (all were 5 star hotels) was the Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa in Prague. The service from check in to out was of a time of elegance forgotten is this modern world. The spa treatments were superb. In house dinning was a wonderful experience. The location made touring Prague a breeze. Meeting the owner a wonderful Italian man, Giorgio, had the vibe of visiting royalty more being part of the Royal Family. On our next trip to Europe i would not miss a couple of days at the Alchymist and recommend that you do the same.

Perfect Hotel and Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just returned from 3 nights in Prague and 2 in Paris. There were 4 couples travelling together, so anywhere we went had the possibility of not pleasing all of us. The Alchymist left us all in awe.

We are pretty much 4* and 5* travelers. The Alchmyst is somewhere between the two. In service it is a 5*. Built in 1517, the rooms, spa and restaurant are outstanding. While expensive by Prague standards, by NY or Paris pricing this place is a steal.

As to its quiet location, you are about 3 blocks from the Charles bridge one way and about 3 or so blocks from the Prague castle the other way. We walked almost everywhere, and when coming back at night we had no concern for safety. Plus the Alchmyst is next door to the American Embassy, so there are always police quietly nearby.

The breakfast (included) was as fine as you'll find in a European hotel. I wish hotels in the US would adopt the European Hotel breakfast standard. For dinner Aquarius is considered one of the top rooms in Prague. They also have a sister restaurant a few blocks away, the Alchymist Club. Very very good, another top room. Hard to find, make sure you have good directions, the desk will do that for you.

Unrelated to Alchymist is the restaurant David, immediately next door to Alchymist. You got it, another top room! (Top rooms as rated by Zagats, by the way, not just my opinion.)

Just down the street is a pub St. Nicholas owned by an American expat, Kevin. Live music Th and Sundays, outstanding pizza, and of course, beer. The pub is underground in a beautiful cave-like space. Great feel, very very reasonable and just a few stumbles from the hotel.

Truthfully, while 3 days in Prague to tour is pretty good, we raced off to Paris thinking we could have spent another night or two just to enjoy more of the Alchmyst. Only one couple used the spa, they raved about the massages and the rest of us regretted not getting one.

So, an unequivocal two thumbs way up for a beautiful hotel that totally gets it right.

This is a top 10 hotel!

from camia
Wonderfully situated- quiet street in immediate proximity to the Castle, the Charles Bridge and all the sites to see. But better than the location was the hotel, which was so nice we were torn between seeing Prague and enjoying what felt like our own palace. It is quaint in size, 30+ rooms, and with a lovely spa and elegant comfortable rooms. The style of the hotel was pleasently in keeping with its history, but very modern in all luxuries and comforts. The staff was not like the rest of the service we found in Prague, the grunts and heaves were stopped at the door, and we were grateful for the helpful and friendly staff. They booked us a 10+ private walking tour of the city with a lovely guide, Hanna. Before I bore you, I would suggest you go and see if for yourself, you cant miss on this one.

ve seen!!

from ARonen
I booked the Alchymist as a surprise gift for my wife's birthday, after a long search, using Tripadvisor and other sites. The decor was very special compared to other hotels, and I was a bit afraid my wife would think it was "too much".But It was a huge success!! we used a lot the words Amazing, Perfect, and unbelievable.

The hotel looks like a real palace. My wife put it like this: if we saw the beautiful furniture, bedcloths and decor in a museum, there would be a "do not touch" sign. But we are actually using it all !!! I had to "drag" her to see the sites outside.

The hotel is new and spotless, every item is of the highest quality, the staff is very warm, friendly and helpfull. We had a Galla dinner at the hotel restaurant, with an opra singer singing arias by Verdi, and the food was wonderful too.

The location is perfect too, very close to the castle and to all the other main attractions, but off the crowded streets.

staying there was a delight, and we are already planning our next time there.

Love it...Love it...Love it!!!

from Jill Hirst
We stayed last September and booked again this year for the same dates. It was a birthday present for my husband. We decided to stay for 3 nights this time to see some of the sights we didn't get chance to see last year.

We are so glad we decided to stay in the same place as the Alchymist is second to none. The staff at the hotel cannot do enough to make your stay special. It was lovely to see the changes that had been made since our last visit (the spa and sushi bar and pool and gym - which we made full use of).

The decor is amazing and I felt like a princess for 3 nights. The facilities at this hotel are second to none, the rooms are beautiful with plenty of hanging space, bathrobes, slippers, hairdryer, TV, CD player, mini bar etc..etc... Its not the cheapest place in Prague to stay obviously because its a 5 star Hotel and in our opinion worth every penny for this level of luxury!, let alone the location. A short stroll to Charles Bridge...we will be back!

Fabulous Hotel

from boncon123
I took my hubbie there for a surprise holiday break - have to say it was a fabulous hotel, like noting I have every seen before.

Rooms where just stunning, staff very helful.

Breakfast was good - but the dinners where out of this world.

Have to say it must be the best hotel we have every stayed in.

We booked the 3 day honeymoon package which included a bottle of wine, chocs and fruit on arrival, an evening meal and a romantic massage for the 2 of us- was really romatic.

Close to Charles Bridge - quite central - lovely city.

Loved everything couldn;t recommed higly enough.

Romantic stay at the Alchymist

from vinsol
I had picked the Alchymist for our 3 day stay as part of our Honeymoon.
I had booked the honeymoon package including the Balinese Massage for two in their Ecsotica Spa and a dinner in the Aquarius Restaurant. At the airport we had a very nice guy with our name waiting to take us in a superb Rolls Royce Silver Cloud to the hotel. Tip: if you really want to impress your wife/girlfriend book this car and everybody on the way to the hotel will take a picture of you! The entrance of the hotel is simply amazing with a charming courtyard full of flowers and every other part of the Hotel is extraordinarily decorated with old paintings and baroque statues. We entered our junior suite to the sight of fresh flowers, chocolates box and fresh fruit basket. Room was amazing, view looked over a cozy garden. Everything was just as it looked in the pictures on the Internet. I had read mixed reports about the breakfast, but our experience was superb with everything from scrambled eggs, cold meats through to smoked salmon and home made cakes. We were very lucky with the weather, so we had our dinner in the courtyard, where a couple of musicians were playing Brazilian melodies. Food was great, service a little slow. We met up with a couple from France, who invited us for a bottle of Champagne into their room that had a large terrace on a small cobblestone street. The wooden ceiling of their suite was richly painted with old emblems and their bathroom was amazing. I didn’t ask for their rate, but I guess it was quite expensive. We were anyway very happy to come back to our lovely smaller room. The second day started with some noise coming from the garden where they are still working at their Ball Room. They told us later that it will be ready in October. It was not a big deal. In the afternoon we tried the Balinese massage in their Spa and we were impressed by the décor, with original carved wooden doors and statues from Indonesia. A small bridge above an open aquarium takes you to the massage parlors. In the Health Club there is a nice swimming pool. They have also saunas divided for men and women and Turkish Bath. The hotel is perfectly positioned just at the side of Nerudova Street, few minutes from Hradchany ( the Castle ) and Charles Bridge. Nice touches with the hotel are the free hotel slippers and home made chocolate pralines every night. We would not normally stay in such a plush hotel, so to us it was quite amazing, but apart from the inconvenience of their construction site, I could not find fault in the place. I would strongly recommend the Alchymist to romantic couples and people who love art, but discourage everybody with small children. VINCENZO SOLERI

Surely the besthotel in Prague!

from squasher
Both myself and my wife stayed here for four nights from 31/08/2006 to 4/09/06. On reflection we are happy that we decided to "take a gamble", as this hotel didn't appear in any of our travel guides.However, the hotel was everything and more what it professed to be from the brochure. We dined in the restaurant where the food and service were at least as comparable with a five star hotelanywhere else in the world. The Spa was well worth a visit. Our room was fantastic and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The ambience of the hotel and the sense of historical time and place is something that we are glad we have experienced. The hotel is situated close to a couple of excellent ethnic Czech restaurants and is only about five minutes from the Charles Bridge. All in all a marvellous experience and next time we visit Prague we'll have no hesitation in returning here.

Top Local Tips for Prague

Shoes Wear flat shoes - Prague is incredibly hilly and the streets are all lined with cobble-stones - a pair of flat boots/shoes will make all the difference.

Taxi: be careful!!!! If you don't want to have any problems, call a taxi at 233113311

Jewish Ghetto We visted the childrens museum when the Jews of prague were held captive and thousands perished. The museum of the childrens drawings humbled us, and made us both more aware just how important life is. Well worth a visit ,however tinged with great sadness!
