Tel: 420 224 842 700's insider take:

We love the new Hilton Prague Old Town, but we've never been fans of the chain's original location, with its out-of–Old Town location and Communist architecture. But for traditional Bohemian cooking gone large, the main Hilton's CzecHouse restaurant is the hands-down winner. Look for tender svickovna smetane (beef tenderloin in a sour-sweet cream sauce) made from the great 19th-century Czech cookbook author Magdalena Dobromila Rettigová's recipe. Beef goulash made with dark Krusovice beer is also a local fave. The space is airy and well-lit after a 2006 redesign shook off almost all remaining traces of the hotel's pre-'89 decor. The restaurant's wall of fame puts culinary achievements into context with images of Czech athletes, from Olympic freestyle skier Aleš Valenta to running legend Emil Zátopek.
