At Corinthia, we always strive to provide the best rates on our website. If you don’t think we have, we’ll pay for 100% of your room on the first night, and price match the rest. Should you find a lower price elsewhere, please submit a claim within 24 hours of your original booking and we will respond within two working days. Please note, this also applies to discounts and promotions available on Corinthia.com.
Process for making a claim:
Step 1. If within 24 hours of a confirmed reservation with Corinthia Hotels made on Corinthia.com, you find a lower rate for the same hotel, room type, inclusions, stay dates, discounts and payment conditions, please contact the relevant email address from the list below to make your claim. All claims must be made within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time of the hotel.
Step 2. Your claim should be supported by the URL where the lower rate was found and a screen shot which clearly displays the date of stay, room type, same hotel, inclusions and payment conditions of the lower rate offering on the competing website. Please include your contact information (name, email and phone number).
Step 3. If we are able to verify that the lower rate found qualifies for the Best Rate Guarantee, and all other terms and conditions are met, Corinthia Hotels will pay for 100% of the room charges of your first night, and will price match the room for the rest of your stay. You will be charged for all nights booked at the matched rate, minus the first night which will be free.
To make your claim, email the relevant hotel on one of the following:
First nightfree, match rate for rest of stay, no minimum nights

1. Your original booking must have been made through corinthia.com.
2. The lower rate must be found and the claim submitted by email within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time at the hotel. If the original booking was made within 24 hours of arrival, the Best Rate Guarantee is not applicable.

9. In the case of a fully prepaid rate booked through corinthia.com, Corinthia Hotels will refund the difference to your credit card, if applicable, within 30 business days of submitting your claim. Corinthia Hotels is not responsible for any fees associated with cancelling a reservation made through a different channel.
10. Best Rate Guarantee will be suspended during times where corinthia.com or certain rates are not available due to an outage, a technical issue or a circumstance beyond Corinthia Hotels' reasonable control.
11. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to rates found offline, negotiated corporate rates, group or MICE rates, opaque provider rates or rates requiring membership in a club or other organization, governmental rates, direct mail or email solicitations, rates offered by providers that do not supply the name or location of the hotel until after a reservation has been made or other rates that are not available to the general public. We reserve the right to deny a claim if the availability of the Competing Rate cannot be independently verified at the time of processing the claim.
12. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package in which the Hotel does not provide all services (including but not limited to airfare and/or car rental, tours etc.) and Hotel accommodations sold with additional amenities.
13. Corinthia Hotels may deny a claim where the difference between the rates is less than 1%.
14. If the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the rate booked on corinthia.com, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in www.xe.com in place at the time the initial reservation was made. Discrepancies may occur between Corinthia Hotels' rate and the Competing Rate due to differences in exchange rate sources. If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.
A highly photogenic city, Prague’s best photography locations include grand, historic buildings as well as thought-provoking, political graffiti
From citywide panoramas to magnificent ancient monuments and poignant 20th century graffiti, Prague certainly doesn’t lack a variety of photogenic locations. Whether you’re a budding amateur or an experienced professional, the Czech capital’s sights are certain to inspire you, such as the reflection of the city lights on the Vltava river at night or the stories told by the buildings in the Jewish Quarter. Be sure to pack your camera when you visit these, our 10 best photography locations in Prague.
Not only is this lovely park open to the public, it’s also got fantastic views of the surrounding area, particularly if you climb to the top of Petřín Tower. Built in 1891, the observation tower was designed as a smaller version of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and today it offers budding photographers the highest vantage point in Prague.
Part of the Prague Castle complex, the magnificence and scale of St Vitus Cathedral is certainly not lost on camera. Almost every aspect of the cathedral is photo-worthy; from St John of Nepomuk’s silver tomb to the elaborately decorated St Wenceslas Chapel and art nouveau style stained glass windows, each part has an important story to tell in Prague’s history.
During the city’s communist era, John Lennon became an important symbol for many dissatisfied young Czech people. After his murder in 1980, a portrait of him was painted on the wall of a quiet square and the image was soon joined by Beatles lyrics and political statements. Despite being repainted several times, the wall always ends up covered in graffiti again and is today left as it is, a striking symbol of peace and the power of music.
For beautiful, historic shots, Wenceslas Square is an excellent choice. The site of many key events in Czech history, this long avenue-like space is full of eye-catching buildings that will certainly inspire your creative side. It’s hard to miss the neo-renaissance style of the National Museum, but it’s also worth keeping an eye out for the statue of St Wencleslas, as well as the poignant tribute to young anti-communist protestors Jan Palach and Jan Zajic.
A neighbourhood that has survived countless threats of destruction, Prague’s Jewish Quarter is home to some of the best preserved Jewish buildings in Europe. The most historic buildings, such as several synagogues, the Jewish Ceremonial Hall and Old Jewish Cemetery, are part of the Jewish Museum in Prague. Visitors must buy a ticket in order to gain entry, but the variety of photo opportunities on offer here certainly makes it worthwhile.
Prague’s star attraction, the city’s castle is world famous for a reason. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the castle complex is packed with extraordinary architecture and art and, as you wander through the palaces and religious buildings, rest assured in the fact that it’s almost impossible to take a bad picture here.
The Vltava River is a key part of the Czech capital’s landscape, and thanks to the reflections on the water and different currents in the river, it’s easy to get some great riverside shots. Visiting after dark is highly recommended, when the city lights are reflected and illuminated on the surface of the river.
Old Town Square is a popular spot with visitors thanks to its host of attractions and picturesque layout. For the most stunning photos, head to the top of the Old Town Hall Tower at sunset.
Possibly the most beautiful library on the planet, the Klementinum library is a baroque masterpiece that you’ll certainly want to capture on camera. Opened in 1722, the exquisite space has a collection of over 20,000 books. Be sure to look up so you can admire the intricate ceiling frescoes painted by Jan Hiebl.
A homage to Czech cubist design, the House of the Black Madonna is conveniently located close to Old Town Square and tells the story of cubism. Home to what’s claimed to be the world’s only cubist café, Grand Café Orient, there are plenty of photo opportunities here, including the snaking curves of the building’s staircase which, when shot from below, appear to resemble a lightbulb.
