The hotel was very good and just walking distance from Charles bridge. The staff was very friendly and the house keeping was good too A good variety in the breakfast buffet. The airport transfer facility was a good option

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

My partner & I stayed here as a treat for his birthday. I booked it after seeing all the great reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. All of the staff were amazing, they couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was great, with a wide variety of continental foods then you could order anything cooked from the menu. They... More

This small hotel near The Charles Bridge was a real find on our first visit to Prague. The friendly staff made us feel very welcome and the complimentary wine, chocolates and fruit for my husbands 'special ' birthday was very much appreciated. We would certainly stay at the Nosticova Alchymist again and have already recommended this hotel to friends.

This hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the more touristy attractions. It is not full service i.e. no fitness center or spa. Also a 5 minute walk away is the Grand Alchymist where you can use the fitness center as we did. The breakfast was great. Probably the best included breakfast I have had anywhere. The hotel provides... More

We stayed at the hotel for a four night leisure break and found it to be a wonderful experience. The staff throughout could not have been more welcoming and helpful.

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.
