We stayed in Room 23 which overlooked the fantastic view of the city and street. The room was simply amazing, large, high ceilings, stylish lighting with an extra room + stunning updated bath. Request it! The staff here was equally wonderful and helped with transfers from and to the train station. Breakfast is filling and the room is charming with , again , great view. The castle is just steps up the hill- so easy to check off your list. We walked everyone, not needing to use uber or other transport~ CHECK In here today and make all your dreams come true! Thank you Golden Star hotel~

Booked this as restrictions were easing for December 2021. However the week before we were due to arrive both Czech and UK governments started reintroducing restrictions which got more severe as the week went on. We complied with everything but the day before departure further restrictions were introduced requiring negative Covid tests within 48 hours before return to the UK. We slept on it but the consequences of 1 of us proving positive and having to isolate alone abroad for 10 days was just too much of a risk. We wouldn't know our results until the day we were meant to return so wouldn't be relaxed at all during our stay. We are both Key workers at home and just couldn't risk it so we decided not to go accepting we would be out of pocket. Nothing we could do about the flights but I contacted the hotel accepting I had booked a pre paid non refundable deal but asked if they would consider allowing us to change dates or offer a voucher towards a future stay. I received a short reply informing me no refunds were possible. I totally accept we were very late in giving notice, but we all know the current COVID situation. I wasn't asking for a refund, I was asking to change dates or at least some form of voucher for a future stay. I'm pretty sure the hotel wasn't full and will probably be some time before tourist confidence is high enough to make it full so not sure what the hotel had to lose but making a goodwill gesture. We would have been guests when the hotel probably had rooms not booked, we would have spent money in the bar and restaurant. I did reply one more time to point out I wasn't requesting a refund but have heard nothing. As far as this hotel was concerned, they had my money and weren't interested. While they were within their rights, it was rather short sighted and provides a vision of how they regard customer relations. We fully intend to visit Prague when restrictions ease again but we will be looking elsewhere for a hotel.

Response from Marek Cermak, General Manager at Hotel Golden Star
Responded 3 weeks ago
Dear Mr. Goodwin, we appreciate your honest feedback although we regard your complaint as very one sided without the understanding of the environment we currently operate in. First of all it is surprising that you accept the fact that flights were not refunded but you expect our hotel to issue a voucher for your future stay. In fact there is actually no difference between the two services. A room that is left empty due to a late cancellation comes at a cost very much the same as a seat on an airplane. Your assumption that hotels are empty and should therefore issue vouchers and accept last minute changes does not have a solid foundation. The occupancies are on a high level and a late cancellation is therefore a loss that we cannot, after so many forced closures, afford to absorb. We do understand that the environment is difficult for both hotels and their guests as governments have been changing rules from day to day but that is also the reason why our guests can chose between FLEXIBLE and NON REFUNDABLE rates. You chose the latter in exchange for a discount so you took the risk and I hope you will admit that is unfair to put the blame on us now. You also mention that there was no follow up from us after you replied to our first response, although my colleague Renata replied to you straight away explaining our decision again. I am resending the whole communication to you via email as a proof. Thank you. Marek Hotel Golden Star

AMAZING location nestled in the castle district. The streets are filled with tourists during the day and by night it’s so quiet you can hear a pin drop. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately we didn’t get the best sleep here as we could hear the guests below us in the late hours of the night.

Clean, modern and very comfortable, the Golden Star is at the same time part of Old Prague: a beautiful house with baroque stucco work just under the Castle, and (we were in Room 44) the most spectacular view over the city. The people were lovely, and the buffet breakfast was delcious with great coffee. We wanted to try the restaurant; but after having sat for ten minutes at lunch time with no one even bothering to welcome us, we went elsewhere.
