Let's Meet in Prague

Hotel International Prague

Hotel International Prague, one of the Czech cultural monuments is located in a quiet residential area in Prague 6, in immediate proximity to the city centre. Václav Havel airport is just a 20-minute drive away, a pleasant walk to the Prague Castle takes just ten minutes.

The hotel belongs among the largest conference facilities in Prague. Fourteen meeting rooms offer multifunctional facilities for meetings and conferences of various types, including two congress halls with capacities of up to 350 and 450 persons.

The conferece halls are primarily characterised by their unique high-quality decorations, high ceilings, and daylighting. The largest hall provides access to a terrace and the hotel’s extensive garden, which will certainly be a pleasant change during the conference coffee break.

The history of the hotel is very interesting. The building was built between 1952 and 1956 by decision of the then Minister of Defence Alexej Čepička. He reportedly hoped that the ceremonial opening would be attended by Josif Stalin.

The building was built in the socialist realism style and originally intended to serve as accommodation for soldiers. Eventually, the army declared that it could not use such over-sized accommodation, and so the building became a hotel at the last minute.

Accomodation

The venue hotel has blocked off a number of rooms for the MCE19 Conference attendees. The central area of Prague offers plenty alternative accomodation options to support every budget. Accomodation details are available here.
