Time Out Says

A modern, four-star, boutique hotel tucked inside the twisted walls of one of Prague’s most famous architectural marvels along the Vltava River

The Dancing House, finished in 1996, symbolizes the intertwining of opposing influences: Eastern and Western, Communist past and democratic future. Designed by architects from opposite sides the Atlantic Ocean – Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunić - It’s curved walls were inspired by the dancing pair of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. With window-lined rooms and a modern, minimalist vibe (including fun neon-colored lights that you control) this centrally located hotel embraces the contemporary side of its renowned symbolism. A sparkling chandelier oversees breakfast in the namesake Fred & Ginger restaurant on the top level, and hotel guests can skip the cover charge in the rooftop cocktail bar and observation deck offering 360-degree views.

Time Out tip: Request a room on the river side and wake up to the sight of the Prague Castle from your bed. Just remember to grab a robe when approaching your windows—there is always a crowd across the street photographing the exterior of the building!
