We have visited Prague many times but never stayed at this side of the bridge before. We will do so in future. What a fantastic place to be. So pretty, so close to everything, so quiet (Jan 2016) and the hotel was a total gem of a place. Food wonderful, staff helpful, rooms beautifully decorated. Everything we asked about or... More

We stayed at this wonderful small hotel for 2 nights in January. I was looking for something traditional and a bit quirky. The hotel is absolutely charming - full of character - wonderful vaulted ceilings and plenty of medieval charm and elegance. Our room was the Johannes Keppler Room - very comfortable, nice bathroom and a kitchen area for making... More

Recently spent three nights at this hotel and it could not have been better. We travel quite frequently and I carefully research the hotels we stay in to ensure that our accommodations are what we are looking for. We do not stay in large, brand name hotels but rather seek out small, boutique hotels that provide a taste of the... More

I booked this hotel after reading so many positive reviews. I have to say we were not disappointed. I had arranged transfers from/to the airport via the hotel.

We had a wonderful stay here. The staff is warm and helpful, particularly Martin who works the front desk overnight. The neighborhood is beautiful and easy walking distance to Charles Bridge and old town. Highly recommended. We would definitely stay here again.

I started my stay in Prague at the sister property, Alchemist Castle Suites. I stayed an extra few days and had to switch to this sister property. Overall I would describe the Nosticova as good, but not great. I stayed in the Garden room, which is quite spacious. While both hotels are similarly furnished, the Nosticova was slightly lower quality.... 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.
