Today though, not only can you visit many of the great writer’s regular spots, you can even sleep, shower and watch TV in them. At Accor’s Century Old Town hotel, housed in the former insurance institute’s headquarters, you can stay in Kafka’s former office – room 214.
Besides providing a multilingual selection of Kafka books there are a number of photo displays and a large manuscript sample poster.
So enjoy a night of passion with a photo of Hermann and Julie Kafka looking down from above your bed, or sample the intellectual delights of pay-per-view movies with a gallery of Kafka’s women placed in a row above your TV. You might even try a little writing yourself, for which there is a small desk with a blow dryer in case you need to . . well . . dry your hair.
