Situated in the Hradcany area, close to the Castle of Prague and away from the road and noise.
Room was amazing; furnished with extreme taste and style it was also very clean. Breakfast buffet was also incredibly rich and it's also possible to ask for special dishes for free like scrambled eggs, sausages etcetera. Staff was extremely kind and happy to help us about any kind of information and advice.
staying at U Raka you can feel the passion that drives the work of the all staff.

We endorse all praise that was already written. Let me just add a little story: We went back to the hotel a little late, and the café was already closed. Upon hearing that we had not dined yet, the night watchman offered he would make us something. We went to the closed café, he asked us what we would like, we said maybe 'palačinky'. The watchman said he did not know how to make palačinky, so he would bake us some 'lívance' instead. And I don't remember a better dinner than those muffin-like cookies with jelly, made to us by a friendly night watchman, who told us some histories from Prague while we waited. I'm lacking words to describe what it was or how we felt, but 'luxury' surely won't suffice. It is something well beyond, and cannot be bought, for it has no price.

We had our experience with romantic hotels, and this one is tops, by any technical analysis of rooms, decoration, breakfest, etc. But when it comes to the friendly staff, well, the Romantic Hotel U Raka in Prague plays in another league.

Hotel U Raka is definitely a hidden gem in Prague. The hotel is tucked away from the road by a long set of stairs. Once you step onto the property, you feel like you're in a different time and place all together. Its some kind of mix between charming farmhouse, rustic ski chalets, and bed and breakfast. We stayed for 4 days in one of their beautiful rooms, just down the hall from the concierge desk and dining room area. We loved the beautiful brick in the rooms, the comfortable bed, but most of all... we loved the working fireplace, for which they provided fresh firewood daily.

We went in the winter, and after a long, cold day of walking around and site seeing, a warm crackling fire really hit the spot (not to mention, it was romantic!) The breakfast provided by the hotel every morning was also spectacular. It was a beautiful spread of breads, jams, meats, and cheeses- pretty typical for eastern Europe, but it was plentiful, delicious, and served to us like we were members of the family. I liked that a lot.

Despite being pretty close to the concierge desk, we didn't hear any noise from the staff or other guests having breakfast. The staff was really friendly and accommodating. This is an excellent hotel with much more authenticity and charm than any 4 star chain. I highly recommend it!

We had a wonderful 4 nights stay in Uraka with our 3 children (teenager and young adults) ; we had one double room and one triple room. Great comfort, lovely decoration, excellent breakfast and very nice team.

We went to prague on a romantic weekend getaway. We wanted to be able to avoid city centre crowds and Uraka was the perfect selection! Gorgeous rooms, extremely friendly team and an excellent breakfast.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in Prague. From the moment you step inside this hotel feels warm, friendly and very comfortable. We stayed in room 5, a superior double and it was perfect for us. The photos give an accurate picture of the hotel and our room (didn't see the inside of any other bedrooms). This hotel is kept spotlessly clean, I didn't see a speck of dusk anywhere. The staff were friendly and courteous.
The location of the hotel is in lovely quiet residential area away from the main tourist/busy spots and therefore very peaceful at night. It is only a 5 minutes walk to the castle and a little further to Charles Bridge. It is downhill to Charles Bridge and quite a steep walk back at the end of the day, although as previous reviews have said you can get tram 22 to do all the work and then a short walk and a few steps down to the hotel. We purchased some tram tickets from the hotel.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and it was an absolute pleasure to stay there.

Room Tip: Room 5 - very comfortable with everything you need and a partitioned corner for hanging clothes and...
