Perfectly positioned in Prague’s cosmopolitan city centre, this Hot Rate Great Stahov Stadium – Prague Smichov Station area hotel ensures that hotel guests are only ever a few minutes away from the capital’s most awe-inspiring landmarks. Served by the Anděl metro station and the Smichov rail station, hotel guests are free to navigate the city and also hop on the direct route to Prague’s main Ruzyně International airport which is less than 10 km away.
The closest notable landmark to the hotel is the Great Strahov Stadium, the largest stadium in the world with an astonishing capacity of 250,000 spectators. Formerly used for major sporting events, the stadium today is now only used as a training ground for Sparta FC and as a concert venue that has hosted the likes of the Rolling Stones, U2 and Aerosmith.
Just a stone’s throw away is the imposing Petrin Watchtower which dominates the city skyline from its prominent position on Petrin Hill. Often compared to the Eiffel Tower because of its design, the tower’s observation platform, gift shop, cafeteria and exhibition rooms are accessible via a challenging 299 staircase or by elevator. Tourists are advised to visit Petrin on a clear, sunny day in order to make the most of the unparalleled panoramas over Prague.
Those wishing to immerse themselves in Prague’s awe-inspiring historical legacy are advised to spend a day exploring the nearby Strahov Monastery. Established in 1149, this vast monastery boasts numerous great halls with fantastically ornate ceilings, antiquated libraries and vibrant paintings, making it a must-see for history buffs and cultural enthusiasts. However, arguably Prague’s most iconic landmark which most comprehensively illustrates the capital’s eclectic past is the striking Prague Castle, located in the Hradčany district. Established in 870 AD, the castle has been home to the Kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman Emperors and the former Presidents of Czechoslovakia.
