This is a very nice part of Prague which seems to cater to tourists. I stayed in this area for 10 days- it was very quiet at night, and close to a giant park (Petrin) and a great pub. It is only a short walk to Old Town. It was a nice place to stay while visiting Prague.

Malostranska Residence was where we stayed. The management reception staff, Marketa and Nicole were very friendly and looked after our household needs wonderfully. This included a bottle of champagne for my 60th. I was really chuffed. They explained the genesis of the building to me when I was chatting to them. They offered to book the ballet for me the...

Nice place to stay, near everything but more peaceful and silent than Stare Mesto. Beautiful streets, very nice restaurants

Simply beautiful and breathtaking - the atmosphere is simply magic, especially during late evening hours but also day time walking around and indulging the oldest town...

Having visited both the original Bridge in Venice and the replica in Cambridge, there is a large two bridge construction that resembles the two structures on a busy street. At the time, the weather was cold, and I feel to be appreciated in its full beauty best seen in sun shine.

The best place to stay and eat etc. Not as touristy as the old town, zero stags on tour, classier and better value. You will find hidden gems that locals frequent as opposed to the rip of places in the old town. I frequent here and stay here only. The old town for me is only for the Christmas markets.... More

As every area in Prague, this one was beautiful too. It is right below the castle and the views from here are amazing. Don't miss it.

The Lesser Quarter (Mala Strana) is located on the west bank of the Vltava River, while the Old Town (Stare Mesto) is on the east, with the Charles Bridge connecting the two via a 10-minute walk. Malostranske namesti is the main town square surrounding the St.Nicolas Church with its famous Tiffany blue dome, which serves as the logical starting point... More

Between the castle and the famous Charles Bridge this area has lots of small streets, found a couple of great bars and the shops are numerous. Walk down the river and through the park area, there was a museum near the park on the river bank, can't remember what it was for though
