The splendid 20th century neo-Baroque Boccaccio Ballroom is the meeting place for hosting exclusive events for up to 160 people.The “Boccaccio” marble restaurant hall comes across in a truly fairytale manner, intimate and aristocratic in its Rococo style, with its galleries, boxes and dance floor. What a delightful work of artistic architecture this is with its beautiful stucco and rich decoration of the ceiling presents one with an especially pleasant and unforgettable stay for its visitors thanks to the subdued lighting and discreet melodic music seductively inviting one to dance.

 Boccaccio is located in the basement and is linked to the café by a corridor. For visitors not staying at the hotel, there is an entrance leading directly from the street., .....And when the enticing sounds of dance music can be heard coming from Boccaccio in the afternoon and evening, the street in front of the entrance soon fill up with beautiful cars, as the “Five o’clock teas” and “Soireé dansantes” and domestic balls in the Boccaccio hall, soon became the place for regular rendezvous of the whole mondaine Prague society.”

 Boccaccio really was a sought-after place among Prague society and not only during the time of the First Republic, but also for several years after World War Two. Jan Masaryk, the Czech foreign minister had a permanently reserved box here on the first floor and the box neighbouring this was reserved for the American ambassador to what was at that time the CSR.

The Boccaccio Ballroom has been restored to all its 1925 splendour as well as the magnificent original parquet floor, beneath a hand-made gold leafed glass chandelier with 4.000 parts.
