A recent arrival in the market, the Neruda has been quick to build its reputation. As you might guess from its discreet baroque façade, it's a hotel with history: the main building dates from 1348. And the Neruda's success has resulted in the addition of a wing designed by Bořek Šípek, the Czech Republic's top glass artist and architect, who's added free-floating curves galore. The rooms in the older building are comfortable but a little plain, so be sure to ask for one with a view of Nerudova street. Service is friendly and attentive.
