Unique Fusion hotel in Prague
Comparing to other cities, I go to Prague pretty often. It’s because most of my flights when leaving home or going back are from/to Prague. I know it might sound ridiculous as it’s 1,000 km from my home town and there are closer airports but the tim and transportation to get to Prague is usually still the best.
So my last time when I even got to spend a couple of days in Prague instead of usual few hours was back in the beginning of June. With my mum we were coming back from a 2-week cruise around Russia and as my mum did not revisit Prague since she was a teenager, it was about time to show her around.
We both shared a room on the 5th floor of the Fusion hotel for 2 nights.
Then when mum had to go back to work, I stayed for 2 more nights as I wanted to attend a Raw Vegan Festival, see my friends and get some professional photos from Localgrapher.
Fusion hotel in Prague is a very unique modern hotel situated in an old bank building. It offers fusion of different room types and most of all, of different experiences. Maybe its concept started first as a hostel but then very quickly it transformed into a trendy hotel for young people, and even for families (we saw some there.)
What I enjoyed about Fusion hotel in Prague:
- central location – walking distance to all the important places in the city centre, and to the train station, too. It was very easy to go out to the Wenceslas Square which is just behind the corner from Panska 9 where the hotel is located. I could just walk to buy something and come back within 15 minutes. Central hotels are always worth it!
- rooms – I had a chance to stay in 2 different rooms. The first one was a simple room with a double bed and a single bed and a really nice view of Prague. I watched two sunsets out of the window laying down in bed, awesome! That room had a cute key to your heart painted on the wall which gave it a special touch; and the funniest pinky bed tables ever!
- My second room was a stylish vintage room on the 3rd floor with a double bed and an LCD TV just above my bed. I loved the wooden wall design with so many frames and other objects. It was a really pretty retro-style room which made me feel like visiting a writer’s house somewhere in the mountains. Shame I visited in the beginning of summer so the hotel was fully booked and I could not have a look at one of the super cool theme rooms they also have at the hotel (white, love or rock one.) By the way, the rooms are decorated mostly by young Czech designers and every room looks different to the others. Many rooms are great for families or groups of friends as they come with 3 or 4 beds. The biggest bed in Central Europe is also here which can hold up to 6 people sleeping at once!
- free wifi all around the hotel – a must for me
- staff – young staff always smiling and willing to help. They were all very nice but my favorite one was Standa. We saw him running around at breakfast and his genuine smile was the first thing my mum and I noticed. He was in such a good mood at that early morning hour I could not believe it. Only then I found out that Standa actually works at the reception now. The staff definitely made our stay even nicer :)
- breakfast included – I am a breakfast fan when I travel (not at home where I usually just drink loads of tea or water) and the breakfast at Fusion hotel in Prague is big enough to fill you up for half a day. The buffet breakfast consists of fresh and canned fruit, yoghurts, cereals, tea, coffee, different kinds of bread and pastry, cheese and some hot dishes (roasted tomatoes, meat, mushrooms, beans etc.)
- ecological shampoo in the bathrooms (I hate chemicals!) + I really enjoyed rain shower
- serpentine stairs – I took stairs instead of the lift 90% of my time at the hotel. There’s cute messages written on the walls saying you can make it and how many calories you just burnt going up. What a great motivation! Even a photo with a ”LOST” fat butt made me laugh when taking the stairs.
- vendor machines on each floor with drinks, snacks, shaving kits and even condoms. Useful, I guess ;)
- Epopey restaurant is the restaurant where you basically have breakfast. Then at lunch time they offer daily menus (Monday to Friday) and until they close also many other meals and drinks. Take away meals are also possible and their menu is online in Czech and English on the Epopey Fusion Restaurant. Epopey is another unique place as they hold there different art exhibitions right on the walls around you. So you can have your meal while observing paintings which you can even buy.
- Soup in the City bistro located at the corner of the same hotel building is a famous place for soups (as the name suggests) and sandwiches. It really gets crowded at lunch time and every day there’s at least 2 different soups of the day. They also have some salads, quiches and cakes.
- 360º bar & lounge is a bar on the main hotel floor with a cool 360 view bar which twirls all around. Different kinds of activities take place at the bar, such as Thursday nights are karaoke nights known in Prague so even many local people come here to sing. We were exhausted with my mum as we arrived on Thursday from Russia but managed to spend haf an hour listening to karaoke there at the bar and let me tell you that the majority of the singers sounded professional to us! I even had goose bumps when some of them sang!
- computers with internet at the reception if you don’t travel with yur own device. You can even print out necessary paperwork (flights, train tickets) at the reception, too.
- music in public areas, playroom with electronic games, storage cages for luggage
*I only wish they had vegan meal options at the restaurant and Soup in the city as I even all the vegetarian meals were made with milk and cheese which make me sick :(
Thanks to Fusion for my stay! You can find out more about Fusion Hotel in Prague on their website and more about the restaurants and the bar on the Fusion restaurants web, too.
