Luxurious One Room Hotel in Prague’s Tallest Building Outfitted with VingCard Elsafe Technology


PARIS – 3 December, 2012 – VingCard Elsafe, the global leader in hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, proudly announces that Prague’s most glamorous hotel has selected RFID security technology among its launch amenities. One Room Hotel—located 66 meters above the ground in Prague’s tallest building, Tower Park Prague—opened in October as one of the world’s most exclusive hotel destinations and the most sought-after guestroom in the Czech Republic.
As its name suggests, One Room Hotel is a single suite of 6-star quality that commands a breathtaking view of Prague’s historic Zizkov district. Following a complete renovation of the iconic Tower Park Prague, the building now features an upgraded lookout observatory, restaurant and bar to complement One Room Hotel. The property boasts the hotel industry's premier modern luxury amenities, including the Signature RFID locking system from VingCard Elsafe.

VingCard Elsafe’s suite of RFID locking systems feature contactless access control via Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) encoded communication and secure anti-cloning software. Recent advancements to VingCard Elsafe’s RFID technology have enabled RFID locks to read keycards from more than twice as far as before. Additionally, VingCard Elsafe RFID solutions are designed to be easily adapted to Near Field Communication (NFC)—technology that is expected to be in widespread use globally within a few years and which will enable travelers to use mobile devices as room keys.

In addition to the RFID locking system, One Room Hotel also deploys a bespoke version of Elsafe’s Infinity II RFID safe in a luxurious white finish. State-of-the-art Infinity by Elsafe UL-listed safes employ the latest locking technology, including anti-tamper labyrinths and solid-steel hinges, placing it on par with the most secure in-room safes in the world. With its industry-leading audit trail, spring-loaded door and Flash-RAM memory, the safe is perfect for protecting guests’ valuables, and the attractive, adaptable design makes it ideal for any hotel environment.

"One Room Hotel is honored to offer our guests the use of distinctive VingCard locks, which are the most advanced available and which provide high user comfort through their contactless identification protocols," says Mr. Roman Lain, owner of One Room Hotel. "The Elsafe Infinity II RFID safes are likewise a leading product in their category. The safes are fully compatible with Signature RFID locks, meaning a guest need only use a single card for both. This makes the VingCard Elsafe products indisputably the premium security technologies in the industry, and a perfect fit for the world's most exclusive hotel."

VingCard Elsafe is the world leader in developing locking systems, electronic in-room safes and energy management solutions for the hospitality industry, offering user-friendly systems that meet the unique operational needs of hotels and resorts. For more information, please visit
