The Adria is the nicest of several hotels located directly on central Wenceslas Square. It's situated in an original 18th-century burgher's house, though a series of renovations over the years has stripped the rooms of many of their period touches. These days, they resemble what you would find in an up-market chain. One place you will find some of the original styling is in the Triton restaurant downstairs, which sports a stunning Art Nouveau "cave" ceiling, complete with artificial stalactites. The Adria cuts rates during summer and offers attractive discounts if you book over the Web.
