Any Questions?

In case you were asking...

Answer

No problem! Almanac X Prague has secure underground parking with charging stations for electric vehicles. Simply park your car and make the most of your trip, whether you’re coming for leisure or business.

Answer

Our concierge team are on hand to transfer you to and from the hotel in comfort and style. Professional, English-speaking drivers can pick you up from the airport in vehicles equipped with free WiFi, on-board tablets and bottled water.

Alternatively, the hotel’s central Prague location is easy to reach via public transport, near the Můstek stop on metro lines A and B, and just a few steps from Václavské náměstí tram stop for lines 3, 9, 14, 21 and 24.

If you’re driving to the hotel from the airport, take Evropská street in the direction of central Prague. Turn onto Svatovitská street at the roundabout, and then at the main traffic lights, turn left onto Milady Horákové street. At the tenth traffic lights, turn right, passing through another set of lights to cross Hlavkův bridge. Drive down Wilsonova street, and at the second set of lights turn right onto Zitna street. Turn right at the first set of lights onto Stepanska street, and you’ll find Almanac X Prague at the end of this street, at Stepanska 40.

You can park in the hotel’s extensive underground parking, or in the paid public car park at Wenceslas Square.

The History

Almanac X Prague began life as the Alcron Hotel, founded by Alois Krofta, who saw an opportunity in the foundation of an independent Czechoslovakia in 1918 to build one of Prague’s first world-class hotels. The Alcron opened in 1932, taking its name from a boat in ancient Greek mythology.

The hotel was state-of-the-art in its design, interior furnishings and equipment, a tradition continued by Almanac X to this day. Krofta was renowned for designing innovative equipment used in the hotel and for personally ensuring guest services were top-notch. The reputation of the Alcron spread quickly, attracting First Republic Czechoslovak celebrities and dignitaries.

Krofta’s ownership of the hotel was “supervized” during the Second World War by the Nazi occupiers, but it retained its reputation as a place of luxury. During the Communist era it was nationalized, and Krofta died a broken man in 1958, having seen his life’s work apparently destroyed.

After the Velvet Revolution of 1989, Krofta’s descendants lodged a restitution claim for the hotel. When they finally got it back from the state, the property had fallen into disrepair. The WSF Group bought the hotel and set to work restoring it to its former glory. By the end of the 1990s, the Alcron had been re-established as a byword for luxury in Prague.

The Alcron converted to the Almanac X brand in 2022. Extensive renovation works began, including an interior redesign in a chic, elegant style throughout the lobby, guest rooms, famous restaurant and bar, and roof terrace.

Owned by the Haselbacher family, based in Vienna, the hotel today presents a distinctively pan-European style of luxury. An unforgettable interior design inspired by Prague from Tres Cinco Uno creative studio combines with the finest locally inspired cuisine and expert service for a uniquely modern Czech experience.
