Brno’s unusual Anybody hotel is the absolute winner of the Amazing Places 2019 accommodation ranking
They boast great cultural and natural heritage and are suitable for an affordable weekend getaway as well as a longer trip packed with adventures and exploration.
To help visitors decide where to stay during their visit to the two countries, the Amazing Places project conducts an annual ranking of the best hotels, guest houses, resorts, chalets, or spas in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
For the past five years, the project organizers have been visiting the evaluated places themselves and selecting winners in various categories.
This year, they evaluated 130 places and selected three winners in each category as well as one absolute winner.
“Each place won our favor by something else. But all of them have something in common. They are simply amazing,” Amazing Places said in a blog post from the award-giving ceremony.
An unconventional experience
The absolute winner of the Amazing Places 2019 is the Anybody hotel in the Czech Republic’s second city — Brno. Located in a historic building in the city center, the hotel offers a rather unconventional experience.
The whole Anybody’s concept is unusual by design and provides couples with an interesting game. Each of the hotel’s ten rooms features a theme based on an iconic movie from the 1960s with authentic costumes. Guests can change into the main characters and reenact the famous parts from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, James Bond: Goldfinger, or Le Magnifique.
“The main pillar of the visit to the hotel is the interaction between the couple staying in the room. This way we indirectly incite them to spend the time in the hotel together in an intense manner, so that they can experience unknown situations,” says the hotel’s concept co-founder, Adam Vodička.
Amazing Places organizers selected Anybody hotel for its idea, realization, atmosphere, and approach towards their guests and staff.
“Brno’s Anybody hotel has won thanks to its unique concept that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the Czech Republic. Presumably, it is unique in the whole world,” said Petr Kotík, Amazing Places project founder.
