BEST RATE GUARANTEE – GET YOUR FIRST NIGHT FREE


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.

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.

Five Places to Visit in Prague’s Jewish Quarter

One of Prague’s most intriguing places, the Josefov quarter packs in more history, art and literature than some small countries. Here are some highlights

Named after the Holy Roman Emperor, Joseph II, whose reforms made life a little easier for the Jews of Prague, Josefov packs more history within its tiny boundaries than many small countries. From being the birthplace of Kafka to the hiding place of the Golem, Prague’s Jewish quarter has repeatedly found itself at the centre of historic happenings and events. Here, we explore its maze of back-alleys and narrow lanes to uncover the best places to visit on a trip to this captivating corner of the city.

Old-New Synagogue

Rather confusingly, the “Old-New” synagogue was never very new, but thanks to the fact its Hebrew sounds very like the Yiddish “Old-New”, the label soon stuck. One of Prague’s first gothic buildings, according to legend the body of the Golem created by Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel still lives in the attic. Created to defend the Jewish community from pogroms, it was ‘deactivated’ when it grew addicted to violence.

 

Old Jewish Cemetery

A sweet melancholy lingers around this patch of 12,000 crumbling stones and 10,000 graves. Some of its most conspicuous are those of Mordecai Maisel, the Jewish finance minister who managed to negotiate the alleviation of the Jewish ghetto’s strict rules and regulations, as well as Avigdor Kara, the court poet to King Wenceslas IV.

Kafka’s Birthplace

The birthplace of Prague’s most famous writer, (author of The Trial, The Castle and The Metamorphosis), Franz Kafka, is marked by a plaque in Josefov. He lived on the corner of Kaprova and Maiselova street for two years (1883-1885), until the Kafka family moved to a house on Wenceslas Square.

Museum of Decorative Arts

Technically outside the Jewish quarter but so close that it breathes down the neck of the adjoining Jewish Cemetery, the Museum of Decorative Arts was built as part of a European movement that encouraged people to return to the aesthetics that had been destroyed by the Industrial Revolution. A feast for the senses that includes textiles, prints, photography, glasswork, furniture, tapestries and porcelain, even its gorgeous ceilings offer hours of entertainment.

Jewish Museum

Not a single site as such but a collection of four synagogues, the Nazis shockingly preserved the Jewish Museum as their intended symbol of “an extinct race”. Today, it stands instead as a symbol of survival, and of the history and heritage of the Jews who lived in Josefov. Entrance to the museum includes access to the Spanish, Pinkas and Klausen synagogues, as well as the cemetery and Ceremonial Hall. The Spanish synagogue is perhaps the most interesting. Named for the Spanish Jews that came to Prague after being expelled from Spain at the end of the 15th century, its Moorish Revival style sets it apart as building of great beauty.
