This is a superb boutique hotel underneath Prague Castle. Having booked on-line everything was perfectly arranged to collect us from the airport to bring us to the hotel based in the historic 'Lesser Town' part of Prague. The staff communicated well via email before the visit to ensure all arrangements ran smoothly. The staff were most excellent and helpful in... More

i have stayed her twice now and it is probably the nicest Boutique hotel i have ever stayed in. from the personal service on check in to the beautifully unique room, there is nothing that wasn't perfect. the location couldn't be better in a quite cul-de-sac under the Cathedral mound. Prague itself is my favourite small European city so add... More

This hotel was recommended by our travel agent and was a wonderful surprise. The service was fabulous, the rooms lovely, and the views from the terrace restaurant and bar perfect. An added bonus was the easy access to Prague Castle and the the city of Prague itself. I highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed 4 nights at the the Golden Well and have nothing but praise for the facility and especially the staff! Short walking distance to everything, great views from our room and especially from their terrace. The rooftop restaurant provides excellent food (and again, views). 5-star service at a 4-star price!!!!!

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Charming traditional retreat in 16th-century Emperor's residence, set beneath the walls of Prague Castle. Wander up the cobbled, traffic-free streets to The Golden Well (U Zlate Studne), clinging to the wall in the shadow of Prague Castle, and you will uncover one of the city's best kept secrets. This modest collection of little inter-locking houses was once home to Emperor Rudolf II, and later the astronomer Tycho de Brahe. Sensitive renovation - has created a cosy yet refined hotel. The result is a pleasing balance of mod cons - internet access, satellite TV - and old style elegance. ... more   less
