Plaza Alta Hotel has recognized the growing need and importance of the development in eco-tourism. Its goal was to inspire the clients and local community through various projects, one being the provision of recycling bins for a local school as well as free provision of bike transportation for hotel guests, proposing eco-friendly cosmetic products, as well as participation in Earth Day and Earth Hour events. At Plaza Alta Hotel a great emphasis is put on saving energy. The windows and façade of the hotel are well insulated, the radiators are regulated and the hotel is equipped with energy-saving light sources. All waste is separated, including used oils and fats. In addition, Plaza Alta Hotel does not offer any drinks in cans, instead it exclusively uses returnable bottles. This economic system also applies to drinking water. All taps in rooms are flow-restricted to less than ten liters a minute. As part of its ecologically conscious strategy, Plaza Alta Hotel also looks after its surroundings and has planted shrubs in the unused area in front of the hotel entrance.

On April 3, 2013, the Plaza Alta Hotel provided its conference room for a press conference held for the opening ceremony of the reconstruction of Ortenovo Square, where our hotel is located. Thanks to a renovation that includes the recovery of green space, a children's playground and the installation of new furnishings, we can all look forward to the beautiful environment of the park, which will be completed in about a year.
In recognition of the ecological celebration – March 23, 2013, “Earth Hour”, we at the Eco-labeled Plaza Alta Hotel decided to support the principles of this event by an hour of dimmed lights at the reception desk and in our restaurant. Candles were lit instead..
As a result of our hotel´s environmental philosophy, we have decided to become an adoptive parent by sponsoring throughout the year the Bahamian duck from Prague Zoo. You can join us in supporting our cause by purchasing a small duck made of original Bohemian glass at the hotel reception desk.
