Travelers' Choice
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.

When you arrive at any new hotel, your first impressions last. Set in a quieter area, what you find is a hotel who do things correctly and professionally. From the checking in with the complementary glass of sparkling wine or beer to the warm well presented and peaceful rooms. Breakfast in the restaurant with its stunning views across Prague was enjoyed every morning and all staff were professional polite and welcoming and remembered previous hot drink orders so ahead in the serving of them. Andrea, we thank you and your staff enjoy your Mimosa. We had one evening meal in the hotel and it’s a long time since all 4 in our party commented how good the food, the setting and the service was. It may present as expensive but to have four trained waiters present your food at the same time, you know it’s special. Again staff great knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. A really nice evening but I passed on desert as I couldn’t manage it… yes even me! Rooms cleaned refilled and turned down every night with a little something left by your bed every evening, I won’t spoil it but it was a lovely little touch. Thank you Lydia for your attention to detail and obvious insistence to perfection. Would we go back? Yes definitely..

There are hotels in the world that make other choices in the area superfluous. Examples include The Grand Hotel in Milan and The Merrion Hotel in Dublin. The Golden Well is one of those hotels. The location is elegant and quiet, yet central. The views are striking. The staff is friendly, and the restaurant is excellent. The room are well-appointed, comfortable, and unique. The Golden Well makes visiting Prague simple; I would not stay anywhere else.

The location of The Golden Well is fantastic. You can not beat the attentiveness of the staff. I went with my husband and four young adult kids. The bed time turn down service leaving a sweet dessert on your nightstand and your fluffy bathrobe and slippers waiting for you makes going to bed an event. Heated bathroom floor was so nice. Had a great bathtub as well. We were treated to complimentary drinks in the bar upon our check-in. Don’t get me started on the breakfast! It was so delicious. The view from our bedroom was beautiful but looking out from the terrace where breakfast is served was the main topic of discussion. We had three rooms and stayed for four nights. Highly recommend!

I am a road warrior who is pretty certain to stay at a Hyatt or a Marriott when I am in a large city. I stepped outside that mold when planning a 5-day getaway with my adult daughter to Prague and I feel that we were both well rewarded for it. The Golden Well was not just a unique experience, but an extraordinarily quiet place to unwind after (or in the middle of) long days exploring one of Europe's most fascinating cities. And, the breakfast and the late-afternoon snacks were fantastic.

Amid the tourist mayhem that hits you anywhere you turn in Prague, this small boutique hotel offers genuine hospitality and luxury. The rooms are unique and ooze character. The breakfast is superb, served in their top floor restaurant with stunning views over the city. If you have the chance to book a table for dinner here you will not regret it. The atmosphere just really worked for me. Highly recommend this hotel for the discerning traveler.

Lovely hotel tucked away at the end of a cobled street under the walls of the castle. Very professional and friendly staff, wonderful room and breakfast. Good location for exploring Prague, only a 5 min walk from Charles bridge, but quiet location.

We stayed at Golden Well for Christmas, and had a magical time. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Views from breakfast were gorgeous. The treats and touches in the room and lounge were lovely. Everyone was kind and accommodating to our energetic one-year-old. Thanks to everyone on staff who helped give our little family the perfect Christmas. We can’t wait to stay at Golden Well again next time we visit Prague!

Lytham St Anne's, United Kingdom51 contributions45 helpful votes
Beautiful and charming boutique hotel nestled beneath walls of Prague Castle and less than 10 minutes walk to the Charles Bridge. Helpful and attentive staff and outstanding service all round! Breakfast was just perfect, everything cooked fresh and to order with the most beautiful views over the rooftops of Prague! Served with a smile and a lovely glass of cold bubbles to enhance that pure luxury feel! Little treats and complimentary drinks offered throughout our stay... couldn't fault it! This hotel is a hidden gem... highly recommended! Christmas here was magical experience but can't wait to return in the summer to sit out on the lovely terrace and walk through the beautiful hotel gardens which were sadly closed during our stay. Well done and thank you to all the Staff at the Golden Well! We hope to see you again soon :) L & G Mc
