Golden Well was the 2nd hotel we stayed in Prague during our recent visit in December. We read about this hotel from a travel guide book and decided to check it out.
The hotel (actually it feels like a upscale boutqiue residential apartment) is located up a little slope off the main street, and off a neighbourhood square. We were dropped off at the neighbourhood square as the road leading up to the hotel was too narrow for a car to enter. (Note: if you have heavy bags then ring the hotel for assistance with the bags. The road can be quite slippery in winter)
We have a very comfortable room on the 2nd floor with views out to the steps and the Prague castle on the far end. In the morning, the roof of the neighbouring buildings were covered with powdered snow, it was a magical sight.
Breakfast was served on the 4th floor restaurant with even better view. Food was of a high quality and the service was prompt.
We walked to the metro station (Malostranska) and Charles Bridge and realised that it was very convenient to explore Prague on foot.
Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend this hotel.
If I were to be picky, then I wish if I could have a larger room. The room we had at Golden Well was a little small compared to all the hotel rooms we had stayed during our recent travel.
- 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
