Alchymist Grand Hotel & Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Without a doubt, Prague is and will always be one of my most favorite destinations in Europe. Me & my wife were on our way to Prague from Zurich. Arrived Prague late at night.
Everything from then - the late night reception, the service, the rooms, the food, the evening wine tasting sessions, & many others really added to their trully grand and delightful experience at Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa, Prague.The hotel decor was nothing short of majestic, and gave sense of living in a castle. Everything about the hotel was exceptional.

We have recently stayed for a short break to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary.
I cannot add much to all the other reviews on how great this hotel is.
From the minute you walk through the door, the Staff greet you with with warmth and broad
smiles making you feel very welcome - the flannel to clean your hands after a long journey
is a lovely touch, as is the glass of bubbly!!!!
When the Staff knew it was a special occasion for us - they upgraded our room - and we
enjoyed a bottle of wine with our evening meal compliments of the Hotel. We thank you for the upgrade and wine, and would like to say you helped make a special weekend even more special with your kindness.
I advise anyone thinking of visiting Praque - you need look no further, you would be hard
pushed to find a better Hotel to stay in.
We will be back - thank you again.
Best wishes to all the Staff.
Sharon & Steve Dunster

Room Tip: we had room 219 it is lovely - has its own balcony.

A truly outstanding hotel with a highly professional staff that is anxious to please.

My wife and I were celebrating a special occasion and selected the Alchymist based on Trip Advisor reviews and what we perceived to be a top hotel at a fair price. After a long flight we arrived at 11:00. Ahmed and Mohamed behind the desk could not have been nicer and more genuinely interested in making our stay special. We were welcomed with chilled cleansing towels and offered coffee, tea or sparkling wine. The hotel is beautiful and very inviting. Take the time to look at the various photos from both the hotel and guests. We stayed for 4 nights and then traveled to Vienna. Our flight back to New York connected through Paris. We enjoyed the hotel so much that we rearranged out trip so that we could have more time in Prague and two more nights at the hotel. I find that many 5 star hotels have great facilities, but appear formal and not at all inviting. The Alchymist is a warm and inviting hotel, with great employees that seem to really care.

Both rooms that we stayed in were excellent. Ahmed made a special effort on our second stay to ensure that our room was even nicer than our first room. I do not think that there are any bad rooms in the hotel. We also enjoyed the fact that the rooms are very bright with a chandelier and more than enough lights.

Breakfast was included in our rate. I understand that it is expensive if you buy it separately. The breakfast was outstanding with many quality fresh choices and great service. The restaurant is incredibly attractive. Breakfast is also served until 10:30.

Massages at the spa are amazing. The pool and exercise room are nice additions.

WiFi in the room worked great, there is also a room with two computers and a printer.

Complimentary wine and cheese was offered daily between 5:00 and 6:00 (17:00-18:00). The wine was very decent and the cheese was surprisingly good. The setting is really nice and when we were able to partake, we met and talked to some very interesting people.

The location is actually a plus. It is in a very quiet location near the U.S. embassy. The hotel is not far from the Charles Bridge, the Prague Castle and public transportation. We walked almost everywhere. The Old Town gets very crowded on the weekend with students descending on Prague. We were glad to escape to the other side of the Charles Bridge.

We met Mr. Hamid, the Operations Manager, at the wine and cheese hour and advised him that we were very impressed with the hotel and staff. His response was "what else can I do to make your stay more enjoyable". Amazing!

Loren helped us purchase Opera tickets. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Take advantage of anyone at the front desk to offer advice about Prauge or to make reservations. They can really help you.

If you want a top hotel at an affordable price, stay at the Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa. It is worth the money.

Tips: Late March is a good time to visit Prague. The weather was very good and it was not that crowded. Old Town gets busier on Friday as students pour into Prague. The State Opera is an experience, book on line as early as possible.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 215 and 216. Both are great and interestingly not next to each other. Should no...

We went to Prague for a 4-day break, really to have an explore of the city & chill out.

Prague is beautiful & very, very relaxed, so well worth a visit.

The Alchymist is about 10-15 minutes walk from the old town which is the tourist hotspot. So it wasn't right in the action, but this was a good thing as it was really quiet in the area.

The hotel really fits into the "boutique" category, with a very different feel. The place has the "wow" factor with the amount of "bling" all around, but is small enough to retain a cozy feel.

The Spa is really of a very high standard. We had a spa day, which was really quite good value compared to the UK. 6 hours of treatment for around £200.

The staff were very friendly, although if I was being super critical they were a little disorganised on occassions, but it didn't impair our stay at all.

So all in all, an excellent hotel.

An intimate, romantic, very traditional hotel providing excellent service and a beautifully decorated environment. It is well placed for all cultural venues and has a first class Restuarant.
