In travel news from Prague, the country’s first really “green” hotel, the Mosaic House, becomes only the second such energy and environmentally efficient hotel in the world. By taking advantage of some of the world’s most advanced enviro-technology, Mosaic House is a four star boutique hotel with industry changing implications.
The Impact-Corti Company presented the Mosaic Hotel news at a press conference in Prague last month. The opening of Mosaic House represents an interesting milestone not only for the Czech Republic, but Europe as a whole. The transformation of this 1930’s hotel into a marvel of economy accommodations as well as cutting edge Eco-friendly.
The active energy saving in this eco-friendly hotel is based on utilizing waste heat and other byproducts to augment solar and other renewable energy innovations. One good example of the hotel’s groundbreaking technologies is the use of so called “greywater,” or wastewater from washing dishes say, tobbe used in flushing toilets and other areas where crystal pure water is not needed.
Don’t be misled here, your bathroom will not smell like dirty dishes or anything, even this water is filtered and sanitized, but the savings is substantial energy wise and dollar wise. Add to this news the fact that the Mosaic is an award winning showplace for great hotel value otherwise – and you have a winning template for future hotel development.
Passive and active technology and futuristic hotel operational techniques seem to be the new hallmark for Prague. We leave you with images of this completely redesigned hotel in the center of Prague.
