Re-opened in June 2014 after an extensive renovation, 3-star AXA Hotel was built in the early 1930s in a Functionalist style in a central Prague location 1,100 metres from Wenceslas Square. Free WiFi is available, and for surcharge, guests can use a swimming pool, sauna, fitness centre, and sun bed. The modern and bright rooms at Hotel AXA come with a flat-screen satellite TV, a seating area, and a bathroom. There is no air condition in the rooms. During summer months, fans are available upon request. Bílá Labuť Tram Stop is only steps away, the Florenc Bus Station is 300 metres away, and the Palladium Shopping Centre is 400 metres away. It is 450 metres to the Masarykovo Train Station and 1 km to Prague Main Train Station. Prague Airport is 11 km away, with transfers available at an additional cost. In 2014 the building was declared a cultural monument by the Czech Ministry of Culture.
AXA Hotel, a Functionalist building designed and erected by architect and master builder Václav Pilc in 1930-32, was conceived as a multi-functional entity centred around the sports-oriented hotel. The sports concept was developed by the architect's wife, prof. Běla Friedländerová - a top athlete who represented the First Republic of Czechoslovakia in swimming and diving.
