Beautiful, bespoke, brilliant
A treasure trove of original art, fixtures and fittings from the 60s and 70s. Many original features still adorn the hotel today, including blown glass chandeliers, gilded lightings and ornate ash wood posts.
A history lesson in a hotel.
Outstanding features to look out for around the hotel include:
František Ronovský (1929 - 2007) created the Triptych paintings which adorn the walls in the Primátor Foyer as well as the Diana Meeting Room, both in the foyer and inside the room.
Stanislav Libenský (1921 –2002) designed the glass displays in the foyer of the Diana Meeting Room and widely considered the most outstanding Czech glasswork artist.
Hugo Demartini (1931 – 2010) designed the 16 golden globe lights in the Zlata Praha Restaurant in 1972.
Miloslav Hejný (1925 – 2013) sculpted the elm wood columns in 1971, creating a monumental set of sculptures for the hotel restaurant with a central fireplace named the Enchanted Forest. Part of the installation has been preserved on the ground floor of the hotel today.
Josef Klimeš (1928) created the wooden wall in 1973 which can be see today at the Duke´s Bar & Café hotel lobby.
Jirí Rathousky (1924 – 2003) designed the Map of Prague in 1982 which can be seen today on the wall in the hotel lobby next to the Garage elevator.
