Palace Praha

Opened in 1909 and designed in a rich Viennese art nouveau style, the Praha Palace has catered to the movers and shakers of politics, the arts and entertainment since its golden days in the first half of the last century.
The hotel was opened on 21 April in 1909. The design was the work of František Buldra -  a Prague builder and the owner of the hotel, together with architect George Justich. In 1924 the new owner Emanuel Oppel turned the facility into a competitive 5-star hotel. Soon after, the Palace Hotel became a center of Prague’s social and cultural life. ?Josephine Baker was one of the hotel's first prominent guests. Even the great opera voice Emma Destinová and her professional partner Enrico Caruso dwelled here on several occasions. Two of the function rooms were named after them. Hotel Palace Praha's first era of long duration came to an end when it was closed on 1 January 1986.
After a months-long battle, the idea of a "sensitive" renovation won and, the Palace Hotel was saved. Its original character has been preserved thanks to the "house-in-a-house" renovation approach, i.e. leaving the outer walling untouched. ?The hotel reopened in 1989, and has been providing top-class service ever since, making many a world’s celebrity feel at home once again. The last renovation of the Hotel Palace Praha was during the years 2006 and 2007.
