“Perfect...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

First of all the location is perfect for exploring the city on foot or by the great public transport network. Streets and pavements are often cobbled, so it is advisable for the ladies to wear flat shoes rather than heels. The hotel is a short walk (less than 5 mins from the Charles Bridge) and just a few steps away from the Prague Castle on an incline. It is in a quiet and safe area of the city, located close to many international embassies (Italian/Romanian/US embassies are just a short walk away)

The hotel itself is in a historic building that has been tastefully refurbished and despite its age it has a lift, in a glass-covered central courtyard which is welcome after the walk up the hill from the City centre.

We stayed in room 307 on the third floor of the hotel overlooking the castle at the back of the building (the street "Nerudova" is not busy in any case). Our room was spacious and beautifully clean. We had a small office nook, and a bathroom with a smallish bath. My only comment is that the bath is quite high to step into which you need to be able to do as it is a shower-over-bath arrangement. The room had Wifi access, a small TV and a mini bar and tea and coffee making facilities.

The thing that makes this place extra special are the lovely attentive staff, they really can't do enough for you, and a lovely added touch is the chocolates and a rose on the bed after the room has been cleaned.

Yes, there are some very minor shortcomings for a 4* - towels are a little small, double is 2 singles pushed together which is not to everyone's liking, tv channels are limited... oh and there's no pool or fitness facilities but if you are looking for that kind of hotel then go to the big conglomerates.

Also breakfast is local fare and you have to experiment, and not expect a full English or decent tea. If you are that bothered about tea, I suggest you put some teabags in your case!

Overall superb service, superb value and perfect for a short or long stay. Go - you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Rear-facing rooms are better for peace and quiet, you can even have your windows open for more air...

This is a lovely hotel full of charm in an excellent location and provides an excellent level of service. We stayed for a four night break over New Year and its an experience we wont forget. Our room 410 was spacious, imaculate and from our terrace/balcony we had a majestical view of the castle which appeared to be just a stones throw away.

The little touches that make this hotel special are indeed the the informative slips on the breakfast tables giving guests the daily weather forecast, tips on whats on locally and the friendly professional staff that couldnt be more helpful. Also on our return to our rooms on the 31/12/12 we were greeted with a complimentary bottle of champagne from the hotel to welcome in the New Year. How thoughtful.

We ate at U tri Houslicik and Cowboys Steak House both on the same street as the hotel both very good food but the service and menu choice at Cowboys was by far outstanding we had a lovely evening there.

We rang in 2013 aboard the Jazz boat which we booked through the Prague Experience. The 5 hours flew past with complimentary drinks on arrival, a plentiful buffet and delightful background music. As the bells rang out we gathered on deck clutching our complimentary champagne to toast in the New Year and watch the most amazing fireworks display above the St Charles Bridge a fabulous start to 2013!!!!

I had a wonderful 9-night stay at the Golden Wheel. The location was excellent for sightseeing on foot, it was close to all the sights and to public transportation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comparatively large. The hotel itself is in a historic building and has character and ambiance. Restaurants and cafes for every budget and taste are within a few minutes walk. You are located in the diplomatic area of the city and just a few blocks from the castle. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Generally a quiet area, but get a room off the street if any noise disturbs you.

The Hotel is amazing,in the centre of the town close to many attractions by walking, perfect rooms with a magnificent view of the town from the hotel and the service of the hotel is just as amazing. Definetely much more worth than the money.. what a bargain :)

For what you pay you get really spacious, comfortable, attractive surroundings. Staff are very pleasant and most helpful. A lovely little cafe off the main foyer provides a decent continental breakfast and snack meals all day until early evening. There is no restaurant but then there are many places to eat all on the same street. In fact we ate dinner in a different restaurant each night, all within a minute's walking distance of the hotel, and all meals were very good indeed. Rooms are all spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are large and very well equipped. There's the usual well stocked mini bar, fridge, and kettle for a range of teas, coffee, and hot drink sachets. Extra little touches include the fresh rose and complimentary chocolate on each bed every day, and the daily info sheet at breakfast with weather details for the day, tourist suggestions, and not-to-be-missed events. The decor is very attractive. A lot of warm wood, chrome and stainless steel glass elevators, a beautiful view from a panoramic upper balcony and some lovely bits of art dotted around (sculpture in stone and bronze and a fair few paintings in various local styles). There's free Internet access in every room if you've your laptop or iPad with you. Or there's a small reading room with a net access PC, a couple of comfy armchairs and a bookcase for you to leave what you've finished reading or perhaps pick up what someone else has left.
