American hospitality chain Hyatt has opened its first hotel in the European country of Czech Republic and the fifth Andaz hotel in Europe.
Andaz Prague is located on Senovázné Square, within the magnificent and historical ‘Sugar Palace’ that dates back to 1916, orginally built for the influential Sugar Industry Insurance Association. The building has since been carefully restored and preserved. True to the brand’s promise of creating a luxury lifestyle experience that is woven into the fabric of the local culture, Andaz Prague has deep roots to the city of Prague and is currently an extension of Prague’s thriving arts, cultural and fashion scene. Josefov, Prague’s Jewish quarter known for its rich history, and the commercial hub of New Town is nearby, along with inspiring museums, incredible architecture and a variety of local shops to enjoy. Situated close to Wenceslas Square, the Old Town Square, and the historic Municipal house (Obecní Dum), some of the most renowned historic sites in
Europe are within walking distance.
Concept and Design
Andaz Prague is a luxury lifestyle masterpiece, housed in the striking and historical Sugar Palace. A juxtaposition of heritage and modernity, Andaz Prague encapsulates the local culture that surrounds it.
The hotel features 176 guest rooms and suites that capture and combine the city’s rich heritage with modern creativity to deliver a luxurious respite with breathtaking city views. The rooms offer comfortable beds, many that are guarded by
Bruncvik’s lion atop the blue velvet bedposts, which is a reference to one of many Czech legends that inspired the entire concept of the property.

square meter) Penthouse Suite offers stylish, handcrafted furnishings, ornate moldings, a marble fireplace and an exquisite sunroom.
