Vintage Design Hotel SaxEnvision a little bit Don Draper’s Mid-Century Modern, a smattering of Warhol’s Pop Art, a smidge of Jetsons’ Atomic Age – and a touch here and there of PeeWee’s Playhouse – and you start to get the idea behind the Vintage Design Hotel Sax, offering affordable accommodations in a vibrant Malá Strana neighborhood. The playful vision of two local architects, the hotel is a paean to post-war optimism, with each of the 23 rooms (and the common areas, as well) individually decorated with restored vintage furniture and artwork, colorful geometric wallpapers, and assorted fun, retro pieces. Rooms aren’t particularly spacious, but are comfortable nonetheless, and include amenities like smart TVs, free wifi, and air conditioning. There isn’t an on-site restaurant, but the lobby bar sells salads and sandwiches throughout the day, and one of the rooms off the lobby stocks free coffee and tea, as well as wines and soft drinks to purchase. And there’s a very fine complementary breakfast buffet (you can pay to order à la carte items) that can be enjoyed from the hotel’s fourth-floor terrace with views to the Prague Castle and the Petřín Lookout Tower.
