The Zizkov Television Tower in Prague was occupied by the One Room Hotel transforming it from a landmark of the communist era into a contemporary setting with luxurious furnishings and modern technology.

The hotel is 230 feet above the city streets and its exterior is in stark contrast with the interior offering a perspective of the city from the observatory placed on the tip of the tower. A floor below hosts the Oblaca restaurant and the hotel offers festive tables for private dinners or lunch of up to 16 persons with a private sommelier and waiter.

A room in the hotel costs 900 dollars per night and they feature a bathroom with glass walls that ensure a splendid view of the city. The tower was built in the 1980s and it has three concrete pillars with a metallic finish and nine pods spread across its surface.

The structure’s exterior was improved by the Czech artist David Cerny with public art comprised of giant metallic babies crawling on the antennae.
