“Awesome hotel in an awesome city !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

In my honest opinion, I am not sure we could have chosen a better hotel for our visit to Prague in October 2012. It was a great rate, amazing location, courteous and helpful staff, great breakfast, and a large room. The street noise is a minor issue if your windows are open. In the summer you can, of course, close the windows and turn on the A/C and block the noise.
I highly recommend this hotel.

If you have ever walked from Charles Bridge to Old Town Square, you have seen this hotel, a charming cream colored building on a point.This hotel is small in size, but gigantic in service. Though front desk has only a couple of people on duty, it functions like a full service concierge. They helped us with our lost passports, our boat ride, and our train tickets to Vienna. In our dozen years of travel around Europe and Asia, we have never met people more gentle and kind than their staff. Spotless. TV, Wi-Fi, bathrooms--everything works. Be sure to have their driver pick you up at the airport.The apartments are furnished very tastefully. We have been to Prague 5 times, and stayed in 3 hotels; this is by far the best. Prague, with the delightful mojitos at "La Bodeguita del Medio" is our favorite city in the world; Hotel Aurus (former U Zlate Studny) is our favorite hotel in the world.

Room Tip: Great if you like a wonderful breakfast and want to be in the middle of things

Thank you so very much for the wonderful experience that you provided us. Your hospitality and service are absolutely world class! You, your sister and staff have made a lasting impression upon my family!

Our dinner reservations were delicious with a great view and atmosphere.

I can not thank you enough for arranging the pastry and champagne for my parents...it was absolutely delicious and we look forward to enjoying even more of it today.

Your thoughtfulness in preparing our 'to go' bags with breakfast foods was, as we say, 'the icing on top'. You all really went above and beyond in our opinion.

And lastly, not only were we in a perfect location, your hotel was absolutely perfect from comfort to being clean.

We look forward to a return visit in the future!

Room Tip: All rooms are provide the perfect accomodations.

This charming little hotel has all the amenities of a B&B and a satisfying and varied breakfast buffet. It is located with blocks of the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square. The rooms are very homey and comfortable though the a/c was just adequate on the warmer more humid days of August. The staff are lovely and helpful. Despite the a/c, I would recommend this hotel as reasonable, clean, safe, and friendly.

Room Tip: I was in room H on the third floor (fourth for the US) which had less direct view form the adjacent...

We stayed in Hotel U Zlate Studny for 5 nights in July and can recommend this hotel for its excellent location between Charles Bridge and the Old Town, its old world charm, the spacious rooms and the competitive pricing. Breakfast was reasonable including eggs made to order. We stayed in Room F which was big and well appointed but found that the noise from the street was intrusive late at night (even with the windows closed). To be fair, the management did offer us rooms on the quiet side of the hotel when we booked. If you are a light sleeper, ask for rooms away from the bustling street. The staff were attentive, pleasant and very helpful from the time we contacted them by email to make our bookings right through to the time we left.

Small but perfectly formed family run hotel.
There are just six rooms (all suites) and everything is within easy walking distance.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the breakfasts were great too.
Not a slick an experience as you would get with one of the bigger chains but if you are looking for a great hotel with history and character, I would highly recommend this. A memorable stay and excellent value for money. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: They are all great and have fantastic views of the royal route

This 16th century building is so beautiful, we watched as tour groups stopped and took pictures of it (and had fun, posing in the window...) We stayed in a suite on the 3rd floor (2nd floor by european expression). Everything about the room was stunning, from the view to the tub, and especially the original, 16th century hand painted ceiling. They had a romantic package I surprised my wife with for four nights. The staff was great, the breakfast outstanding. May be the best value in Prague. There couldn't have been a better location. Right between Old Town and Charles Bridge, in the middle of it all, but still quiet and calm. I don't think I would ever stay anywhere else in the city.
