We were picked up from the main railway station by a very friendly man from the hotel (a great start of a great stay). The staff were all very friendly with a smile and very good restaurant tips! Very nice junior suite. The hotel actually makes the impression of not being a typical hotel, but a cosy place to stay.... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in June 2015. We found it to be a gem of a small hotel in Prague. I traveled with my husband and two kids ages 11 and 14. We had a spacious family suite. The hotel is beautiful and Nosticova is a very quiet little cobblestone street. The hotel rooms are lush and beautifully... More

The Garden Annex, top room: Go ahead and splurge. Can't be beat for romantic, comfortable, and quiet setting just a short walk away from the Charles Bridge. Wonderful and helpful staff, great internet access, excellent breakfast, and 5 pm wine and cheese. Parking easy and secure! I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if I return!

We were greeted by a warm welcoming staff that was that way all the way through our stay there. My room was spectacular with great black out curtains and very quiet. The hotel is in walking distance of many of the attractions that most want to see and a few places off the beaten path too. The breakfast buffet was... More

We spent 4 fantastic days at this place. It doesn't look like a hotel at all, but a little palace in a very quiet location, yet close enough to Prague highlights. Sasha and Martin did their best and deserve to be mentioned, helping a lot with suggestions and making everything possible to make our stay even better. Always with a... More

Shakespeare penned "All that glitters is not gold", but that couldn't be further from the truth with this gem of a hotel. Nestled on a quiet side street, this quaint boutique inn projects a perfect ambiance for a European vacation. Rooms are appointed with gold furnishings and the most stunning Czech crystal chandeliers in an opulence that somehow feels charming... More

The little gem on Mala Strana is worth a stay. The staff is very attentive and helped us with our dinner reservations and information about places to visit and what not to miss. The room was spacious, but you have to live with the small quirks of a building several centuries old: squeaky wood floors, bathroom flooding from the shower,... More

This place is straight up in the middle of all of Prague, minutes from Charles bridge and all kinds of food, drink, and sights! The rooms are all fit for a king, first class all the way.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
