At Butterfield & Robinson, our hotels aren’t prosaic—they’re pure poetry.

From castles and riads to ryokans and monasteries, we source lodgings that aren’t just places to crash, but one-of-a-kind spots as intimate, authentic and sublime as the rest of your journey—and packed with personal touches from our hotelier friends.

Below we’ve rounded up a few of the best luxury hotels in Czech Republic, where you can do so much more than simply rest your head.

But be warned: there may be tears when it’s time to say goodbye!

Set amid the peaceful Spreewald forest, the 18th-century Hotel Zur Bleiche was converted to a luxurious Resort Spa & Wellness Centre in 1992.

Nip at an archangel cocktail in the former refectory, now hotel bar, and reflect on how good life can be.
