“When in Prague, stay at this hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are a lot of great hotels, but staying at some of them you feel like you could be anywhere in the world. It is definitely not the case with Golden Well hotel that to me seemed to represent the quintessence of Prague. Everything about it - the architecture, the location, room design and the views both from our room and the Terrace restaurant reflected the miracle of this jaw-dropping city. I was there for business, but we did walk around the Old Town and like some other reviewers noted, I found the Mala Stana location much nicer for staying. The Old Town, although very beautiful, has losts of crowds and is very busy. The area where the Golden Well is located is very quiet especially at night and creates a feeling as if time has stopped there. On our first night the concierge recommended Palfy Palace restaurant for dinner. I would highly recommend this place, only 5 minute walk from the hotel, not only for its food, but also for the atmosphere. Looked like a very upscale place mainly filled with beautifully dressed locals. Prague is definitely not to be missed as a place to visit, and even one visit would not be enough for it. I miss it already as well as the warmth and comfort of the Golden Well hotel and its highly professional friendly personnel.

Room Tip: try to get a room on a higher floor. The higher you are the better the view, but there are only four...

An excellent hotel if you want to be treated like a king. The service was impeccable, the room was amazing with lots of lovely little touches. Drinks on arrival, wine on ice in your room. We were staying for our wedding anniversary and the hotel left a beautiful homemade cake in our room to celebrate. Breakfast was mind-blowing, with amazing views over Prague. The staff were attentive, friendly and all together very professional. One of the best hotels I have stayed in - better than Raffles in Singapore. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Prague it added to making our trip a memorable and unforgettable time. Ladies - loads of wonderful molton brown products

From check in to departure the service was impeccable but without the pretensiousness of most luxury hotels. A great and stylish hotel but above all relaxing. Even the 7 course degustation dinner ( excellent although priced for special romantic celebrations only !) was served in a calm and relaxed way- made special of course by the wonderful view of Prague. Yes all the great reviews are fully justified! Enjoy!!!

From the moment we booked on line to the moment we received a lovely personal email on our return home, the charming staff pulled out all the stops to make our stay truly memorable. We felt like incredibly special guests and have no doubt that all the other guests did too. The location is unsurpassed and the views are very romantic. We shall definitely be returning for more truffle eggs and the most amazing steak ever... Keith & Zoe

I recently stayed at The Golden Well and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were lovely, very helpful and attentive. The location was good, away from all the tourist crowds however still close to sight seeing and the hotel had amazing views of the city. The hotel was very good value and included breakfast each morning (anything from menu or buffet and included sparkling wine!), drinks and nibbles in the lounge each afternoon from 4-6 and a dessert on the bedside table each night. I would def recommend this hotel if visiting Prague!

Our recent trip to Prague (and my first return since 1969) was our best vacation ever – and U Zlate Studne was a major reason. The always delightful and helpful staff, exquisite room, instant access to the castle gardens, delicious food, unsurpassed quiet and convenience of the Golden Well's location, and spectacular views from our room and the restaurant made this the only place we will stay on our next trip to Prague. The staff knew which restaurants, concerts, historic sites and tour guides would best meet our needs, gave us outstanding service for every request, and engaged us anytime we wanted in spirited and informed discussions about history, culture, music, politics and other topics.

After U Zlate Studne, other hotels will have to work miracles to impress us. The room, Jacuzzi, comfortable bed, bedtime pastries, welcoming wine and dessert, incredible staff, and pervasive romance of the entire hotel are etched in our memories. We have recommended this gem to everyone we've talked to about our trip -- and cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: Our quiet corner room on the third floor offered incredible views of the city, in snow, rain and sun...

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
