The Golden Well is the most lovely hotel I've ever stayed at in my life. My fiance and I stayed here for 5 nights a week or so ago, and it was literally heaven on earth. Impeccable, from the tiny demonstrations of care (turndown service with little pastries waiting for us, fresh fruit every day) to attention to detail, patience... More

A lovely respite from the "busy-ness" of Prague, near embassies and Parliament, but close to Castle. Book at the restaurant for dinner: lovely at sunset and great food. The staff were wonderful: friendly, helpful, professional. You felt appreciated to be there. The rooms were very nice and clean, well supplied. Only caveat: we wanted a room with the wood beamed...

This little hidden hotel is amazing. It is at the end of a cobblestone street, but well worth the find! When we arrived a lovely, friendly women (Adele) told us our room was not ready so she took us on a tour of the hotel. We ended up at the rooftop restaurant (which is one of the best in the... More

We have stayed in many special hotels over the years, but the golden well stands out as having the very best service and old Europe charm with all the modern conveniences. The views can't be beaten and the restaurant is outstanding. We can't wait to return.

We are keen travellers, and stayed for one week at the Golden Well. Seldom does one find such a wonderful place. Great hosts, first class restaurant with astounding views over the city. The rooms and bathrooms were impeccable, with great taste in every detail. The location, a hidden and discrete place with sloping streets to arrive. Another plus is the... More

beautiful views near the castle. The outdoor rooftop restaurant had delicious food and a wonderful wait staff. We stumbled upon the restaurant and have recommended it many times. Definitely worth a visit to the Coda restaurant. Dress up and enjoy a wonderful evening.

We had a great stay here in this charming hotel, it is well-positioned, but away from the hustle and bustle of tourist Prague. The staff were excellent and our room was very comfortable and spacious. There were lots of nice little extra touches, such as fresh fruit put in the room every day and a little cake each evening on... More

We stayed at the Golden Well in a Grand Deluxe Room for 3 nights and the hotel did not disappoint! The location is in a quiet street and not a bad walk to Charles Bridge and the Old Town. On check-in, Simon showed us around the hotel. We loved the entrance to the castle grounds from the terrace restaurant! The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Charming traditional retreat in 16th-century Emperor's residence, set beneath the walls of Prague Castle. Wander up the cobbled, traffic-free streets to The Golden Well (U Zlate Studne), clinging to the wall in the shadow of Prague Castle, and you will uncover one of the city's best kept secrets. This modest collection of little inter-locking houses was once home to Emperor Rudolf II, and later the astronomer Tycho de Brahe. Sensitive renovation - has created a cosy yet refined hotel. The result is a pleasing balance of mod cons - jacuzzis, internet access, satellite TV - and old style elegance. ... more   less
