Having the opportunity to visit Prague after 20+ years we jumped at the opportunity to stay at the fka "Pension U Raka" now "Romantik Hotel U Raka". Just as charming as before, extremely attentive staff, great rooms, great food. They even arranged an exceptional chocolate cake for breakfast to celebrate my wife's birthday! Look forward to returning, hope its before another 20 years! Our little country oasis in the heart of Prague. One hint - use the trams, they make travelling throughout the city very easy. To return to the guest house the Brusnice #22 stop is just up the hill.
We stay in the “Romantik” hotels frequently which is how we found this small hotel off the beaten path. Michael, the manager, was amazing, starting with picking up our bags from another hotel since we could not book here for our first two nights. The experience went up from there. We stayed in their premier room, which we were amazed by. It was huge and comfortable and what we needed in between work weeks for resting. The hotel history is SO interesting and everywhere you look are small artistic vignettes to enjoy. It is absolutely quiet and up near Loreta and the monastery. If you want to be in the thick of things and have easy access to the main city, this is not your place. If you want excellent service in a small quiet location, I highly recommend U Raka.

Stumbled upon this gem on a cold November day for dinner, had the place to ourselves, so service was fantastic, recommend the honey roast ham and the warm pear cinnamon and rum which we had a couple off, in front of the open fire. Could not recommend this place enough.
We stayed here four nights and it was wonderful. It's in a quiet area, off the beaten track which makes it a perfect choice. Close enough to walk to the Palace and and the other places to see in that area on top of the Hill. There is a trolley within a quick walk, it will take you throughout Prague. The staff was very helpful, answered questions and helped in any way they could. There were plenty of choices for breakfast. The room was quiet, large and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay.
Best place to stay in Prague. Period! This place is paradise. Michael, Monica and Jacob were amazing hosts; the friendliest welcome we have had in years. 5 minutes walk to Tram to city center or an easy downhill walk (10 minutes to Prague Castle or 20 minutes to Charles Bridge) to main sights. Quiet. Peaceful. Nice snack bar and fabulous breakfast.
