A masterpiece from Bohuslav Fuchs for spending day and night

Description

The plot of land on which the hotel stands is 8x34 metres. Fuchs has managed to insert a large café on the 1st and 2nd floor and 50 hotel rooms above it due to the depth of the building and especially the 8 floors. The owner's flat was on the top floor. It is not possible to see the whole building from the street because the upper floors are set back like steps.

Pavel Janák was inspired by the Hotel Avion to build the Hotel Juliš in Prague.

 

History

The hotel was opened on July 10,1928 with big ceremonies. For further information and historical photos click here.
