I really like hotels that don't look like others. Hotels that give me interior design inspiration and offer a different experience than at home. A little more trendy. A little more daring, but still comfortable. NYX Hotel in Prague dotted with all these things and more. Here you will find a trendy hotel with a lot of modern art, in a perfect location with just a few minutes walking distance to the sights of the old city center. Recommended!
NYX Hotel is a 5-minute walk from the Na Prikope shopping street and a 10-minute walk from the Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock. Are you coming to Prague by train? The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the train station. Buses and trams are right around the junction.
My room was one floor up from the street, but as it was a cross street with no restaurants, there was never any noise from the street at night.
I check into a SPACE room on the first floor. The room is clean and airy furnished with a double bed, a desk with wardrobe and an armchair. There is a minibar, a coffee capsule maker, kettle, TV and free unlimited wifi.
Compared to the bedroom, the bathroom is quite small. The bathroom has a rain shower directly to the left when you enter, a small sink with a mirror straight ahead and a toilet to the right. Nothing more and nothing less. Shower products from Sea of Spa, but unfortunately no conditioner but a combined shampoo+conditioner product. There is a small hair dryer (not a hair dryer), so if you need to blow dry your hair, bring your own.
A minus (besides the lack of conditioner) was that it was not possible to lock the door from the inside. I always sleep better when I have a safety lock or can lock the door.
How was the bed to sleep in? Beautiful pillows and lovely duvets made me feel like a princess all night.
The hotel does not offer much service apart from 24-7 reception and luggage storage after check-out. There is no hotel restaurant and the hotel bar was never open when we passed by over the weekend. There is a Vietnamese fast food restaurant next door that serves good Vietnamese coffee, so it was always possible to hang out there while waiting. There is also no spa or pool.
A plus, however, is that the hotel is dog-friendly and for a small extra penny you can bring your four-legged friend!
In an incredibly lovely breakfast room, everything you could possibly need for breakfast is served. Hot dishes, spreads, freshly baked bread, vegetables, juice (concentrate), cereals and sweets. The only thing I was possibly missing was waffles/pancakes, an on-demand egg station and good sparkling water.
Everything is self-picked, even the coffee. However, the staff are quick to remove empty plates from your table. I absolutely loved sitting on a cerise chair under the disco ball and drinking a coffee! All colors, all different wallpapers and fabrics. I'm just saying – so nice and cosy!
So, what's the bottom line?
The NYX Hotel in Prague is a hotel I would love to stay at again. Stylish, excellent location and fresh breakfast - I don't need anything more when I go on a big city weekend!
