“Absolutely fabulous!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I am writing this review while lying in our incredibly opulent, comfortable bed in this hotel. We have stayed in dozens of wonderful hotels all over the world, and this ranks right up there with Locanda Orseola in Venice as our all-time favorite. Yes, everything is way over-the-top, but that's why we came here in the first place. The rooms are fabulous, the public rooms are even more so, the staff is absolutely perfect and so helpful, breakfast is great, free wine and cheese every afternoon… What else could you possibly ask for? The location is amazing… In the most quiet possible street but so close to all the action. To say that it exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. Be sure you are booking this little 8 room gem and not its larger sister hotel.

Stayed at Alchymist Prague Castle Suites for 3 nights a couple of weekends ago. Hotel in a quiet square between the castle and Charles Bridge. Unprepossessing façade but wonderfully opulent inside. The hotel website photos are representative. Staff all young and keen to please. All speak English which is essential as even simple Czech phrases are too difficult to pick up on a weekend break.
Hotel has sister hotels in Prague. Recommend you write down name and address of hotel and keep with you throughout your stay to show to taxi drivers/locals for directions.
8 rooms, all individual. Well equipped. Bed v comfortable - I like a firm matrass. Only negative, lighting went off (not sockets and only our room) but staff sorted this immediately, presumably by throwing the trip switch.
Breakfast is at a large table in a beautiful double room. Very nice arrangement as it would be churlish not to talk to fellow guests and this is immediately a major plus. All nationalities staying and sharing experiences. Food fine. Reasonable but not extensive choice.
Cheese and wine at 5pm every evening included and worth doing at least once. Here you can pick up with fellow guests. Adds to the feeling of being a house guest rather than a paying customer. Don't believe the hype re Czech wine. It's not challenging the world order today!
Very much a place for well-heeled couples (sic).

This is a lovely and unusual hotel. There are only seven or eight rooms, all of which are unique and beautiful. The rooms are thoughtfully furnished. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was huge and the tub was wonderful for soaking. Breakfast was very good and there were tables outside on the balcony which was delightful.

The hotel is located in a quiet spot in the shadow of the castle walls. I found the location to be one of the best things about the hotel. All tourist spots are within easy walking distance but even during the extremely busy tourist season when Prague is most crowded, the little square in front of the hotel is quiet and peaceful.

The staff work incredibly hard to ensure all guests' needs are met, which is remarkable because there are so few of them. It seemed like they were working literally day and night and if I could change one thing it would be to add an additional person or two to the staff to give the hard working team there a break.

Just back after 3 nights at the Alchymist. Splendid place to stay, just below Prague Castle and 5 minutes from Charles Bridge. This is a quirky 'hotel'. It is really a big ostentatious house, with reception staff and butlers! Staff are great and very helpful, they just couldn't do enough for you, advising and booking restaurants, to ensuring transport back to the airport was arranged.
Breakfast around one big table was a new and interesting experience and we met some very pleasant people. The breakfast service was the sole glitch - the butler could become overwhelmed and one one morning it became a bit chaotic, but please be assured that this was a minor point in an excellent base for a stay in a lovely city.

The Alchymist Prague Castle Suites was beautifully appointed, comfortable, had a huge bathroom and large room, a balcony overlooking a shared courtyard, and wonderful breakfasts (not buffet, but with actual choices). The rooms had chandeliers, there was wine and cheese tasting every afternoon, umbrellas to borrow, competent and friendly people in every part of the business, and it was right under the castle! A short walk (mostly uphill), and we were at the castle and parade grounds, or could go up into a tower at the church and see the whole city. The neighborhood had plenty of restaurants, but it was not far to the Charles Bridge to walk into the old town. There are only eight suites, and it's in a quiet neighborhood close to the Senate, with its beautiful grotto and owls, near a square where the trams stop. A very charming place with an extremely capable staff.

Room Tip: We were off the street in the green room (the key had a large green "jewel" that matched o...

European vacation we visited quite a few places but there are only a couple of hotels we will remember. One of them will definitely be the Alhimist. The service was just the best. They organized our whole stay and everything what they suggested turned out exactly as they described.

This is a very special place, well located about a 5-minute walk from Charles Bridge and just below Prague Castle. The staff are amazing, especially Eddy and Albina. Neither could do enough for you from booking taxis, tours and musical events to serving coffee and wine. Felt very pampered and special. Hotel has only 8 rooms, plus spa and exercise room. Not recommended for children under 10 years, I would suggest. We will stay again here in a heart beat!

Room Tip: We loved the 'Amber' room.
