Our group ended up staying at the Golden Well by accident. The person who recommended meant to recommend a different hotel. Oh well, lucky for us it turned out great. Awesome breakfast, comfortable rooms, quiet, conveniently located by the castle. our last night in Prague we ate dinner at the restaurant on the outdoor terrace. Amazing food and sweeping views...

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in! From the moment we arrived to sadly the moment we had to depart, everything was wonderful! Location is superb.

Except for having a bit of trouble finding the place as it is on a pedestrian only hill, everything was perfect. The staff warm, friendly, helpful.

The Golden Well is simply amazing. We stayed for 8 nights and loved every second. The special treatment begins at checkin.

This is easily the best hotel we have stayed at. The service standard and attention to detail - from the front desk, to housekeeping, to the restaurant and everywhere in between - are exceptional.

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
