U Mecenase – a family residence and restaurant is located at the House of the Golden Lion on Prague’s most picturesque tourist route known as the Royal Walk where coronation pageants paraded for centuries. There is hardly a better place to start exploring the historic centre of Prague than Lesser Town Square, the main square of the Lesser Town. The House of the Golden Lion, dating back to 1608, is built on top of gothic cellars and is the only remaining building with a renaissance core on the Lesser Town Square. A cosy family residence is hidden within the historic walls, with 8 brand new apartments and a newly refurbished restaurant offering excellent Czech cuisine. The charming family residence and restaurant is located within just 2-minute walk from the Charles Bridge and features wonderful views of the Prague Castle and the Church of St. Nicholas, Prague’s finest piece of baroque architecture.

Perfect period location near some very nice bars and restaurants and an easy walk over the Charles Bridge to the busier/noisier side of the river. Accommodation was the 3 bedroom apartment for a long weekend which was perfect for a family get together and was beautifully appointed and furnished. The restaurant downstairs was excellent with very good quality and value. Highly recommended.

We spent three nights at the Residence U Mecenáše in early September. We had to cancel our initial trip to Prague because of the global pandemic and shutdowns and had received a credit for our deposit, which we were finally able to use. We could not have picked a nicer place to stay in Prague. The manager we worked with initially, was able to arrange transport from the airport to the apartment, (for an added fee), but it was nice that we did not have to tackle driving in the city, and very convenient. Once we arrived, there was no need for a car as we could walk everywhere we needed to go. The apartments are located in the historical center of Prague. The castle is up the hill from Residence U Mecenáše , and the old Charles bridge was just down the street. There are numerous restaurants and shops within walking distance. We were in the attic apartment, and consequently, lots of stairs to climb, but it was quiet and comfortable. The apartment had stove top, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and utensils, if we had wanted to find food to bring back – actually a great idea for breakfast. Our attic apartment had yet another set of stairs up to the bedroom itself. While we didn’t mind the steep stairs up to the bed, it is a consideration when booking this particular room, especially as the bathroom is located on the first floor of the apartment, and we had to climb down the steep stairs to use the bathroom at night. The apartment included many old beams, perhaps some from the original 1608 building?, and it had a view from the small window, of a prominent church in the square that was lit up at night. The bathroom had newer amenities and shower. For us, the apartment was perfect for our needs and located in a lovely old part of the city. Also of note, the apartment manager was able to arrange transport for us when we left, to the countryside, about 1 ½ hours outside of Prague, where we were headed, and the same taxi driver was able to pick us up there and return us to the airport on the day we left the Czech Republic. A highly recommended stay in Prague

We spent three nights in apartment 3 and it was absolutely amazing. The apartment was huge and very finely furnished. The staff was so helpful and friendly in giving us all sorts of information and answering all my emails. I really can't find any faults....it was perfect. The location is superb, with easy access to all the different parts of Prague, which was and still is my favourite city. If I come back to Prague, or rather when I come back, as I'm sure I will, I won't look for any other accommodation as this is really the best you can get. Thank you!

We have now stayed at Residence U Mecenase on 4 different occasions over the last 2 or 3 years. Each time has been a different sort of trip, so each time we have had a different room depending on the circumstances of our trip. I can honestly say that every time I have been delighted with not only the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation, but also the customer service offered by the whole staff and management. From the welcome at check in, friendly advice and recommendations during our stay, arranging transport, taking care of luggage if we have to check in early or check out late, nothing seems too much trouble. The location is fantastic on the Mala Strana, which is the quieter side of Charles Bridge, but still well in walking distance of all the major sights and attractions. Try ordering the breakfast, it is a fantastic assortment of fresh and local produce and the price is so reasonable you really shouldn’t even try to find better anywhere else! Our next visit is in a few days time and we really can’t wait. I cannot emphasise how much I rate the whole experience of staying at the beautiful, clean, historical Residence U Mecenase!

My friend and I stayed in the 2 bed apartment with castle views (as described on their website). We arrived late and they arranged for a taxi to collect us on our request and we accessed the room key using a keysafe outside the main entrance. The apartment is beautiful; traditionally decorated and comes with all facilities you would expect and more. We made good use of the aircon as were staying over a very warm weekend! The location is great - a very short downhill walk to charles bridge and if going to the castle, a 3 minute walk to the tram stop for 22 that takes you there. Will definitely be seeking to stay here again when cisting Prague again to see all of the places missed out on during this very enjoyable trip to a beatiful city. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful
