Hotel Josef is excited to be the first and only hotel in Prague to offer their guests an unforgettable ride on a design icon: the legendary Čezeta scooter. Manufactured from 1957 to 1964 in Czechoslovakia the Čezeta motor scooter was synonymous with aerodynamic design, the spirit of the space age – and instant freedom.
On the 60th anniversary of its creation last year Čezeta debuted the Czech Republic’s first electric vehicle, a brand-new custom-built scooter based on the original Soviet-era model minus the petrol tank. Precision-crafted, fun and stylish, a special-edition of the commemorative Čezeta Type 506 has been designed exclusively for adventurous Hotel Josef guests who value luxury, timeless design, and above all thrilling performance.
Ride a true legend
Get your motor running
The Čezeta is available to borrow in three-hour time slots throughout the day. Your first three hours are free of charge; longer outings possible by special arrangement and for a fee. Drivers must have a license valid for driving in Europe and will be asked to sign a waiver of responsibility for any fines or tickets incurred. Helmets and friendly demo by a member of our staff provided!

An Icon Reborn
A rocket to the stars
Invented by Jaroslav František Koch, a motorcycle racer and true Czech adventurer, the Čezeta 501 was a hit all over the Soviet bloc during the Cold War era; its distinctive rounded front earned it the affectionate nickname “The Pig.”
