Complete with 24-hour reception, free Wi-Fi Internet, parking and much more, Lázeňská N°4, a Boutique Residence with just 14 apartments housed in a Baroque Palace, is only 100 meters from the statue-lined Charles Bridge and 200 meters from St. Nicholas Church on Lesser Town Square. This holiday accommodation is perfect for those looking for vacation rentals that are in a quiet, tranquil place that is just off the main tourist path.
The Lázeňská N°4 residence is housed in a magnificent Baroque palace that has been renovated and now boasts high standard common areas, apartments (14 apts.: Azalea, Begonia, Calendula, Dahlia, Elderflower, Freesia, Gladiolus, Hollyhock, Iris, Jasmine, Kalmia, Lily, Magnolia, Neroli – all named after beloved flowers & herbs from the intriguing world of botany), offices, a conference room and more. Enter the palace, which once belonged to the Knights of Malta, by pulling on the original pull bell and step back in time… as you walk through the entrance corridor, notice the original paintings of shields on the walls where you can see the Maltese Cross (also visible above the main door when you enter). The building boasts terrazzo flooring, a few imposing wrought iron doors, evocative archways, representative staircases, restored casement windows, and other original architectural elements. There is also, at the back of the palace, access to a private green garden with benches. The palace is home as well to a boutique & galley of antiques from all around the world.
What a great location! Situated right off the main thoroughfare in Malá Strana that leads to both Charles Bridge and Lesser Town Square, the Lázeňská N°4 residence is alive with Old World glory and a great vibe, yet still retains a quiet charm. The surrounding area is – simply put – the most atmospheric area in the City of One Hundred Spires. The Baroque palace sits next to the Church of Our Lady Under the Chain (the oldest church in Malá Strana – with original pieces of the structure dating back to 1158, and one of the oldest churches in Prague). The sturdy gate towers in the front of the church date back to the Gothic reconstruction of the church, while the interior is Baroque and boasts the paintings, Madonna Blessing the Maltese Knights at the Battle of Lepanto (1651) hanging at the high altar and the Beheading of Saint Barbara at the southern altar (1674) - both by Czech painter Karel Škréta. The church and the palace once belonged to the Knights of Malta – as did the majority of the buildings in the immediate area – be on the look out for more Maltese Crosses. The neighborhood has some other architectural gems with their fair share of history. Ludwig van Beethoven even stayed in a buildings across from Lázeňská N°4 (there is an info plaque on the facade). Have a wander around the area and you will come across the colorful Lennon Wall, the Devil’s Canal – a whimsical little stream, and Kampa Island, home to a park, museum and bar & cafes. Lázeňská Street is named after a former spa that was situated on the cobblestone lane in the 14th century (Lázeňská is derived from the Czech word for spa – lázně).
