When the Kempinski Hotel Hybernská Prague opened in 2008, it brought a new level of luxury to the Czech capital. A Baroque palace—not far from the famous Old Town Square—was converted into a contemporary hotel with a head-turning art collection and a quiet courtyard garden. The hotel was sold in late 2013, and Kempinski concluded its management contract on June 19, 2014.
Now called The Mark, the hotel is independently managed, under the leadership of the newly appointed General Manager Daniel Tylinger. (Previously, Tylinger held the title of Director of Sales and Marketing at the hotel since 2009.) A member of Leading Hotels of the World, The Mark has 75 guest rooms that are billed as the most spacious in Prague. Many have separate bedrooms and living areas.
The elegant restaurant, Le Grill, has recently stepped it up a notch with the hiring of chef Ondrej Koráb, who has trained under some of London’s top Michelin-starred chefs (like Heston Blumenthal). The seasonal menu highlights outstanding products provided by local Czech farmers.
