Hotel of the week
Long Story Short
Olomouc, Czech Republic History meets chic minimalism at a hip new hostel in one of the Czech Republic’s most charming cities, said Anna Jones in Dwell.com. Located in a horseshoeshaped 17th-century fortress building, Long Story Short has 56 beds divided between private and dormitory-style rooms, all painted pure white and outfitted with stylish custom and contemporary furnishings. The hostel has an on-site café and restaurant, but guests should also get out and explore Olomouc, a picture-book town crowded with university students and as many microbreweries as historic churches.
