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. The hotel is in a magnificent historic building - full of quirky charm. The room which we were first offered did not have a bath but we were found an... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights last week. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived and were offered a glass of wine at check in. The room was very comfortable and good size bathroom. Shower is over bath as usual in most European hotels. Breakfast offered a good selection and was delicious. We totally enjoyed... More

Really great experience - staff were outstanding, breakfast excellent, Deluxe room with largest bathroom in the hotel, but there is no separate shower, its a open shower over the bath, small point but would complete the room experience!! Wine and cheese early evening for guests, excellent Pinot Gris! Location is on the river, great local restaurants and a short walk... More

Being a theatrical type, I love and appreciate this hotel for it's splendid decor and opulent rooms. It's all swags and drapes, mirrors and chandeliers. The art on the walls is interesting and different and there is a suit of armour standing at the bottom of the spiral stone staircase. The service and breakfast were excellent and we really appreciated... More

The hotel is delightful, all red and gold swagged materials, mirrors, interesting furniture, witty details like a cat in a blocked-off inner window; set in a beautiful old building, in a very convenient area for tourists, in between the Charles Bridge and the Castle, but hidden away down a quiet side street. We were in one of the rooms on... More

First of all, we arrived by car at night. We went to the wrong hotel. We set the navigation for the sister hotel, Hotel Alchymist Grand. The staff there were very nice, very helpful. They offered us drinks while we waited for them to resolve our hotel confusion. Once we arrived at the Nosticova, the front door man was already... More

The hotel is located on a quiet of street and is absolutely charming - almost like walking through a time machine. I stayed in a room called Mozart, and it felt like I was in the 17-18th century (with all the luxuries of today, ha ha). Staff were amazing, not one problem at all, when I go back to Prague... More

In a quiet street but only a few minutes walk from always busy Charles Bridge, resides a small (only 17 rooms) but lavishly appointed hotel of charm and distinction. Art work and collectibles adorn the public areas. Very friendly and accommodating staff exist to please the guest. The included full breakfast fulfills practically any egg request, wth a very complete... 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.
