The location is great - very close to the palace and about a 15 min walk to the old city. Based on reviews I was expecting a bit more old world charm. Basic and adequate. Very lovely staff. Very large family room good for a baby. Baby playpen available upon request.

Booked this hotel as I was impressed with the quirky decor from the pics. I was worried reading reviews so I emailed the hotel to be sure that the room I booked was in fact what I thought it would be. We stayed in room 3 and although some things weren't perfect we couldn't imaging staying anywhere else. Staff at... More

The location was great and the property has so much potential. Very old world. However, it was a bit run down and our room was dusty. The mattresses were terrible and the one pillow was not acceptable to sleep on. Also, no AC if that's important to you. The weather had cooled so temp in the room was ok but... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Small Luxury Palace in August 2015! The staff was very friendly, the room nice (and cool, which was a blessing, with over 30° outside!) and the location is perfect! The Hradcin and the Charles Bridge are only a few minutes walk away. In the evening most tourists seem to be on the... More

If you are into old, vintage furniture and high ceiling rooms in aristocratic houses, you will love the Small Luxury Palace in Prague. It is the definition of a boutique hotel. Situated on the Nerudova Street, right next to the Romanian embassy (that's how you find it, easier), 10 minutes walk from the Karol Bridge and probably 1 minute from... More

I stayed in the big room shown in the main photo and this room is great. Unfortunately I stayed in another room there and saw another room and they were small, no light, dusty and smelled like smoke. Pro: Central and reasonably priced. The reception staff seemed nice. High ceilings in some rooms. Con: loud street and thin walls, bed... More

Amazing location, Mala Strana area, cobbled streets and historic buildings. The hotel is on a street halfway between Charles Bridge and the palace, we did all our (four days) exploring on foot. A lovely, listed building. We had the entire basement flat, two large, king-size ensuites with a kitchen and living room. Staff were friendly and welcoming and we explored... More

Stayed here 2 nights the first week in July. Found the hotel to be conveniently located and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Weather was very hot. Our room on the ground floor was reasonable cool without air conditioning. Only complaint was that our dirty towels were not replaced on the second day of the stay.

The online photo was amazing. A red baroque room, dark, classic and sexy. I wanted to surprise my wife on our wedding night with a special honeymoon suite and whilst looking through the online offers via Booking.com and I saw a room being offered by Small Luxury Palace. So I booked it. The hotel emailed me and told me, **in... 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.
