Romantic hotel Red Lion is located in an historic burgher house from the 15th century in the very centre of Prague. It lies directly on the Royal Route, only 400 metres from the Prague Castle and 500 metres from the Charles Bridge. All rooms have an enchanting view of Petrin, the Royal Route and the roofs of Mala Strana (Lesser Side) underneath the Prague Castle. They are equipped with historical furniture. In some rooms you will find the original painted wooden ceilings dating back to the 17th century. Hotel guests can enjoy lunches in the hotel restaurant with remarkable renaissance ceilings. The restaurant serves traditional Czech as well as international cuisine. Breakfast is served in the form of rich hot buffet. The pub U Cerveneho Lva invites you for a glass of wine or Pilsner beer. Its centuries old stone walls provide cool refuge from the heat in the summer, which makes the pub a perfect oasis to relax in. The bar, which dates back to 1350, is located in a lime stone cellar with Gothic vaulted ceilings. It serves a variety of hot and cold drinks. The pleasant atmosphere of the hotel patio invites our guests to relax. A limited number of parking places is available directly in front of the hotel. You can use free Internet spot in the lobby.

Don't be put off by the name. The Red Lion Restaurant is beautiful and intimate. 50Kč bread charge. Goulash for starter followed by grilled beef fillet wrapped in bacon in pepper sauce. My wife had the roasted pork in gravy with white cabbage and potato dumplings which she said was very nice. 1 hit apple strudel with whipped cream (sorry no picture)1 large beer, 1 small beer and 2 coke's and the bill came to 1400Kč then you add the 10% service charge on. All in all a very nice meal in cosy surroundings and at a reasonable price. Recommended 👍

Great hotel in close proximity to Hradčani. The rooms are clean and reflect a bit of history. Breakfast is excellent, varied, fresh and delicious. The whole origin of the eggs is indicated. The staff are helpful and friendly. The reception desk is located in another building, which is no problem as staff is constantly available. I definitely deeply recommend it.

Myself and my husband went in November to celebrate my birthday and when we arrived at our hotel it was around 7pm we asked at our hotel for a recommendation for somewhere nice to eat and they recommend here as it was close to where we stayed, we enjoyed it so much that out of the 7 evening meals we had in Prague we had 5 of them here, the service was exceptional and Pavel & Lia where perfect servers the food was hot and very filling and we stayed with eating the traditional cuisine and it didnt disappoint, I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant if your in the area and give the local cuisine a go 😊

What a wonderful hotel, just a 5 minute walk up to Prague castle and 5 minutes down to the Charles bridge. The staff at this hotel are the friendliest I have come across and I have travelled fairly extensively. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone had a smile which felt warm and genuine, rather than forced or tired. The hotel is quaint and original. Highly recommend the restaurant. The food was fabulous and the service 5 star. This is a restaurant, not a tourist trap, and the food was the best we had in 4 days. The room was super clean and beautifully presented, with period furniture and lovely painted ceilings. Not a modern, mirrored cube, with no personality. If we come back to Prague I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We visited here as a spontaneous drop in, very friendly and laidback, and our food was out of this world! would highly recommend eating here if you’re looking for a quiet, well priced, and delish place to eat for one evening.
