An interesting and non-standard architectural solution, implemented by F. Gary and V. Milunich. The house is located in the center of Prague, on the ground floor there is a restaurant serving French cuisine. The building is sometimes called the “glass” and “drunk house”. The dancing house is built in the modern style of deconstructivism, which uses asymmetric and in some places promiscuous forms. At first, the townspeople did not accept the innovative construction, but pretty soon it became the "highlight" of Prague.

A Disappointing Stay at the Dancing House Hotel
I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Dancing House Hotel, and I must say that my experience left much to be desired. While the hotel had its aesthetic appeal, there were several functional asp.. Read more »ects that fell short of expectations.
First, the air conditioning system was a major letdown. The air conditioning in my room simply failed to cool it adequately. The room remained uncomfortably hot throughout my stay, making it difficult to relax or get a good night's sleep. It's disappointing when an essential feature like air conditioning fails to provide the comfort after a long day of sightseeing in Prague.
On a positive note, the breakfast at the Dancing House Hotel was indeed a highlight. There was a variety of eggs, fruits, meats and vegetables as well as yogurt and pastries. The quality of the food was excellent which is why I cannot give a one star rating . I would rate the breakfast and the breakfast staff five stars.
Regrettably, the issues with functionality continued beyond the air conditioning. Despite the visually pleasing design of the rooms, the practicality was severely lacking. The shower in particular was a nuisance, as using it inevitably resulted in a wet bathroom floor. The shower door had ripped seals and failed to serve its purpose. In the room there was a large sliding glass mirror/door hiding either the bar and refrigerator or your closet depending on which way it was moved. It had no buffer to prevent it from slamming into the walls when opening and was often in the way of the doors and drawers when opening them. This inconvenience could have been easily avoided with better planning and design. The various flaws proved the hotel was built with a priority of form over functionality.
While the Dancing House Hotel may boast attractive aesthetics and a superb breakfast, the flaws in functionality cannot be overlooked. The lack of effective air conditioning and the impractically of many design choices hindered my ability to enjoy my stay. If these issues were addressed, the hotel could have the potential to offer a much more satisfying experience to its guests.

2. Try some long Exposure with the trams at night. Looks awesome
Very nice terrace with a great city and river view
If it's on your way you can go there but it's not worth to go there just to see this building.
Brilliant piece of modern architecture and does not impose on the surrounding historical buildings.

Wouldn't recommend going out of your way to visit but if passing by, is worth stopping for 1 drink. Worth noting that during our visit, the terrace had a very bad issue with wasps constantly flying around you and crawling in your drink. No effort made by venue to counter this which was frustrating.
