Located near the old Jewish Quarter - Josefov - the two buildings of Hotel Josef - Pink and Orange Houses - are a relaxing counterpoint to Prague's active, urban lifestyle. Hotel Josef is located in Prague’s medieval quarter, near Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square. Two new buildings, containing eight and six floors of bedrooms, are linked by an open landscaped courtyard and a glazed link that unifies the public areas at ground level. Designer Eva Jiricna has managed to create a modern masterpiece that elegantly blends the most modern elements with the rich history of its surroundings. Unlike most ‘modern’ hotels in historic city centers, Hotel Josef has not been shoehorned into an old building. It is totally purpose-designed to suit the needs of a modern facility. The public areas flow effortlessly around a central courtyard giving visual clarity and orientation.
