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. Breakfast comes with the room and is as elaborant as the rooms are. The staff are friendly and helpful and the night life... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night, on arrival was a little confused as what looked like the main entrance wasnt but the porter quickly showed us to another building directly opposite. Our suite was large, spacious and opulently furnished. it was very clean and well equipped. The complimentary cheese and wine hour is a very nice touch. The... More

This hotel is a gorgeous small luxury home away from home. We have travelled to Prague 6 times before … it’s our favourite city in the world. Once arriving at the Alchymist we knew that we were going to have a wonderful time there. We don’t know why we never stayed at this hotel before, but for sure is not... More

If you want a quiet base conveniently located to explore the glories of Prague, off the main tourist trail but in easy walking distance of all the main attractions, the Alchymist Nosticova Palace is ideal. If you like quirky decor then the Alchymist must be hard to beat. You would never guess from the outside, but the interior is a... More

Wonderfully decorated hotel - Friendly staff - Strategic position to visit Prague: the hotel is located in the quiet and characteristic district of Mala Strana. All major tourist attractions are a short walk away - great breakfast - beautiful and silence room. Staying here is a real pleasure. Highly recommended!

I have read critical reviews of this hotel and cannot understand what there is to complain about. The staff were friendly, welcoming and could not have been more helpful. The hotel was charming, décor somewhat exuberant, in a quiet location yet only minutes from Charles Bridge. Being very picky, in a hotel that Mozart himself would have felt at home,... More

This hotel is a true gem. It is not your cookie cutter big box hotel trying to sell you extra services. It is close to where you want to be but far enough away from the maddening crowd to appreciate the true romanticism of Prague. The room was large, the bathroom was updated, and the view let you know exactly... More

This is the perfect small luxury hotel if you want a little more quiet of a spot, yet all the amenities of a world class large hotel. The staff is warm and inviting, and anticipates your needs. The location is fantastic, a five minute walk to the Charles Bridge and nearby parks. But that 5 minutes gets you a LOT... More

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.
