History of The Hotel Paris in Prague:
Arc On the place of today´s The Paris Hotel there used to stand mediaeval houses which were pulled down around 1900. The architects, Pfeifer and Vejrych, designed today’s existing building in 1904. Its front facade was partly changed between 1926-1928. From an architectonic point of view, the building itself is Art Nouveau, with a number of Neo-Gothic elements. Its distinctive feature is the tower, together with the iron canopy above the main entrance. J. Köhler’s mosaics decorate the ground floor interior. Its originally stylish furniture was later replaced by newer ones. This hotel underwent two major renovations in 1985 and 1993 and it was refurbished by copies of its original furniture. The Paris Hotel is one of the best-known hotels in Prague. Its restaurant was very popular in the 1920’s, and for that reason the novelist Bohumil Hrabal chose it as a setting for his novel “I served the King of England”.
