Radisson Blu has opened a new hotel in Prague following a renovation and rebranding of the Sheraton Prague Charles Square Hotel.

The 160-room property occupies a nineteenth-century Art Nouveau building on Charles Square between the city’s Old and New Towns.

The brand previously operated the Radisson Blu Alcron in the Czech capital, which will now be taken over by Almanac Hotels.

The hotel has eight meeting rooms with space for up to 150 people, and free wifi throughout.

Yilmaz Yildirimlar, the Radisson Hotel Group’s Vice President for Central and Southern Europe, commented: “We’re excited to open this historic hotel in a prime location. It is our first leased property in Southeastern Europe and represents our confidence in the market.

“We see the Radisson Blu Hotel, Prague as the perfect business hub and a superb venue for the conferences, meetings and events sector. The hotel will complement our Park Inn Hotel Prague, and we’re proud of our well-positioned footprint in one of Europe’s most exciting cities.”

The building is owned by Scandinavian property developers the Wenaas Group, which has 26 hotels across Europe.
