Tel: 420 224 222 888's insider take:

Opened in 2009, in a 1904 building that formerly housed the Czechoslovak Chamber of Commerce, the Hotel Kings Court has a history-laden atmosphere similar to that of its venerable next-door neighbor, the Hotel Paris. The Kings Court complements its great location (on Náměstí Republiky, central Republic Square) with 133 well-designed rooms that echo the glorious early years of the 20th century and the city's flourishing culture between the two world wars. There are generous doses of heady, period colors like purple and ocher as well as elements of Czech Cubist design visible in the lamps, chairs, and other furnishings. The uncomfortably named but otherwise excellent mEating Point restaurant serves very good Continental and international fare, and there's excellent people-watching from the outdoor terrace in warm weather. There is a swimming pool on-site, though it has more architectural interest than exercise potential: The exposed stone walls surrounding the tiny pool area are part of the city's 1,000-year-old fortifications. All in all, this is an attractive, locally owned hotel that offers lodging and services at the standard of the big international luxury chains, at prices that are often a good deal lower.—Evan Rail
