HotelThe RIVER TERRACE hotel project aims to offer its guests luxury accommodations, fine dining and an exceptional experience in a central location with immediate access to Prague’s city centre.  From the RIVER TERRACE HOTEL, guests will be able to take in exceptional views of several of Prague’s historic landmarks, as well as have direct access to a serine beachfront and an opportunity to see and experience Prague along the Vltava River.

The hotel is located in a greenway along the western banks of the Vltava River. The main entrance to the hotel will be on the hotel’s western façade along Hořejší nábřeží street.
The hotel complex comprises three linked buildings with eight floors; two basement floors and six aboveground floors, and offers a total of 326 rooms, 97 parking bays, 4 outdoor bus parking bays, and a conference facilities for more than 1,000 participants.

The hotel is designed with training and conference facilities in the congress centre along the western wing of the complex and accommodations and restaurant facilities in the eastern wing in the direction of the embankment.  The eastern wing will offer views of a nearby park, the Vltava River and Rašínovo nábřeží on the oppose banks of the river. Elevators will take guests from the spacious lobby with its reception desk and winter garden to their rooms and to the daily bar and restaurant. The Lobby escalator will take guests to the congress centre and Yacht Club. The entire lobby and reception area will be under a glass roof to maximize natural lighting.

In order to take full advantage of the hotel’s location along the banks of the Vltava River, designs include a quiet inlet of the river into the hotel grounds thereby creating a riverfront alongside the full length the hotel complex. Designs for the river bank include the creation of a zone which combines outdoor terraces with mature greenery and relaxing seating areas.

As part of the district’s recent re-development and modernization, Smíchov, like other districts along Prague’s river front, is now equipped with a state-of-the-art flood-protection system which is guaranteed to ensure that the area will not experience damage from flooding similar to that which resulted from the floods of 2002. Extensive measures have been taken in the design to protect the hotel complex against any possibility of future flood conditions.

The system’s protective barrier is comprised of concrete walls and mobile stop planks which will protect the site and the hotel from high-flood waters.  The flood protection system has been designed to exceed measures of protection necessary to withstand a thousand-year flood event and is linked up to Prague’s city-wide state-of-the-art flood-protection system.

More information on the anti-flood measures and their costs are provided in the Feasibility Study and in the construction work budget section. Edited versions of these documents are available in the Downloads section, and full versions are available from the project manager.
