Stayed for three sunny days in March 2012 in this charming hotel in the shadow of the castle. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly English-speaking staff. The attic room (no. 41) had views both across the city (magical as it emerged through the morning mist) and sideways towards rooftops and a little onion-domed church. Every day they left us fruit, cakes and chocolate. Next to the restaurant is a terrace with chairs to sit and enjoy a peaceful drink while looking over the city. Breakfast is lavish (meat, bread, pastries, fruit, etc.) and you can choose a delicious main course such as truffled eggs. Oksana, our waitress, was charming. It's a short cobbled walk down the hill to Mala Strana Namesty, where for a reasonably authentic meal we can recommend the restaurant Malostranska-Beseda in Malostranske Namesti (Lesser Town Square) nearby: huge copper stove and a cosy atmosphere. We also liked the more western-european Cukrkavalimonada cafe in pretty Maltézské náměstí for drinks and snacks. Golden Well has its own "Terrace" restaurant in the same room as breakfast: small, expensive and glamorous. Walk up the hill to Strahov Monastery and you will see eighteenth-century cabinets of curiosities, including books made of the wood of different trees (each containing its own acorn and leaf).
- 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
