I could not be more pleased with our stay at Hotel U Raka. This tiny, farmhouse-styled inn is over two centuries old but was rebuilt and modernized in the 1990s with great attention to detail both inside and out. Our air-conditioned room was spacious, charming and had a very modern bathroom. The extremely quiet space overlooked both the hotel's beautiful... More

We so enjoyed our 4 night stay at the U Raka. All the staff were helpful and pleasant, and most spoke English. The room was large by European standards, beautifully decorated, with a comfortable bed and modern bathroom. Breakfast was buffet style, although you could order eggs, etc. for an extra charge. The pastries were nice, there was always fresh... More

U Raka is a small 'cottage' styled hotel on the very edge of Prague's historic old town, close to Prague Castle. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, providing airport transfers at a reasonable additional cost. We were there for 4 nights. The entrance courtyard and garden are particularly charming and interesting, crammed with carefully collected and arranged millstones, stone... More

We had a wonderful time in the U Raka. Mr. Paul an his colleges helped us to find excellent places (restaurants, cultural events). The atmosphere and the personal in the U Raka are very kind, nice and sympathic. Next time in Praha we will be guests of the Hotel U Raka again!

Well, what can I say other than it was truly magical - the pictures on the website do not do it justice - we stayed in Room 6 - a truly lovely room with its own winter garden. Mr Paul and his staff, especially Teresa made our stay in Prague a very pleasant one and we were very sad when... More

My wife and I stayed here pre-TripAdvisor and found it to be absolutely charming -- a beautiful and quiet location just a little above Prague Castle, in a very old and painstakingly restored gristmill with uniquely designed rooms, a delightful breakfast room, and a superb courtyard for dining and drinks in nice weather. My wife recently returned there, walking up... More

This past December we went on a family vacation to Prague and chose this charming hotel after reading through Tripadvisor reviews. It was a fantastic stay, the hotel had such character and we were very comfortable. We were 4 of us and when we checked in we found that the extra beds were set up and ready for us. The... More

Very comfortable rooms with unique interiors. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Very close to the Prague castle but is at least a half an hour walk to sites closer to the main square (downhill to the city and uphill back). Nevertheless this was a beautiful walk which we enjoyed very much. There is also a tram stop nearby... More

Came across U Raka by taking a wrong turning when exploring the castle district on a very cold day in mid December. What a find! Only 3 tables but 1st class food in the cosiest setting imaginable. Can't praise it enough. Just hope we can get a table the next time we visit Prague.

Thanks to Helena who made our stay here very comfortable and memorable. This is a great hotel for couples in Prague. Beautiful little oasis in the very busy city of Prague. You'll look foward to coming back to the hotel at the end of a long day traipsing over the cobblestone streets of the city. The room was very comfortable... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
