I came here with family when we visited Prague in December. It was like walking into an old church with low ceilings and thick walls. The staff were friendly and I had the hot wine throughout which was warming - well suited for a cold December evening! I was eager to try potato pancakes and pork knuckle which is what... More

I had two dinners in this restaurant and I'll never forget the experience! All were very very good: the food, the price, the place, the waiters!!! An advice: the soup is so tasty that you can't take only once!!

The hotel is located about 50 meters from the Old Town Square. It is a couple of steps to the bus station. The room was big with high ceiling, the lighting was poor event when all the lights were on. There is no elevator, so it is hard to get to the upper floors. Staff is nice and help me... More

It's hard to imagine a better location - on a corner of a small and quite lane connected to the Old Town Square, just about 10 steps from there and being able to see the Christmas Tree from the hotel door! And it's not just the location - everything was splendid in our stay there: clean and spacious room, helpful... More

Stayed here last year. We just stumbled upon the place and decided to give it a whirl. They gave us a room on the top floor. That's all good except there were about 109 steps. No problem I'm in reasonable shape and believe me the excersie helped burn off the extra beer and food. One major beef was the church... More

We stayed here a few years ago and the place is just as good as it was then. Ideally placed in the heart of Stare Mesto and a few steps from the Square it really is great value for money. We especially chose the large attic room as we liked it the last time, but for those who require a... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
