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. We found the value for money incredible as well, especially by European standards, and when compared to other boutique 5* hotels. The restaurant and its views... More

We chose Golden Well because of its best location right under the Prague Castle wall. From the moment we arrived we were been very well taken care of by the great hotel stuff with 5-star service. Would definitely visit again!

When I read the initial reviews I was a little worried because I can't walk well. However, the hotel was superb. I didn't find the hill walking to or from an issue, it was easy walking distance from the Charles Bridge, in a more quiet area but still plenty of places to eat and shop but not anywhere near as...

If you choose to stay at the Golden Well Hotel you're truly in for a treat! We stayed here just for one night but it was one of the best luxury hotel experiences we have ever had. The location is superb and we really liked that it was tucked away slightly. The staff are by far the friendliest and most... More

We cannot say enough good things about this boutique hotel located in the castle area of Prague. Everything from the warm welcoming staff to the fabulous food (and not to mention the beautiful rooms with unbelievable views of the city). This is the only hotel I would ever stay in again in Prague.

The Golden Well is a small hotel, with few rooms, but lacks nothing in service, comfort, staff and all things that I consider important. There is no pool, conference rooms, spa, fitness center and all other “amenities” that most high and business hotels are proud of, but on my opinion add little to your experience, and actually add to confusion...

Dear algi1958, Thank you for your detailed review.

And we believe that our attention to detail and our focus on personal service is the reason why we are different from bigger hotel... More

The Golden Well hotel U Zlaté Studně isn't just an ordinary hotel. It's a place where accommodation isn't just accommodation, but a real treat! Nice historic building is located in a quiet corner in the government district near the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle.

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
