Having recently returned from this wonderful boutique hotel I can only endorse all the praise that has already been lauded upon this beautiful retreat just below the Castle. It's position is envious, with wonderful views. The staff could not have been more helpful or professional and the attention to personal detail was amazing.

The room was lovely, spacious, well appointed and with so much more than a normal hotel. Towels were changed twice a day even when not requested and the evening turn down was quietly but charmingly done.

The food is excellent and you could order what ever you wanted for breakfast. We also had two evening meals in the restaurant which were superb.

We cannot fault this hotel in anyway so a big thank you to all The Golden Well staff and to Trip Advisor who we went to, to make our choice.

My Mom booked this hotel for a girls week in Prague - we had two rooms - one for her and one for my two sisters and I and both rooms were absolutely perfect. We were completely spoiled from the moment we walked in until checkout and we were so sad to go. The concierge communicated with my Mom regularly before our visit and arranged for amazing day trips and reservations. The moment we walked in it felt like we had known the staff forever - we hugged them all immediately! The hotel was beautiful and the location was perfect. We loved walking up the street to tuck in each night. The breakfast and view from breakfast were incredible - an absolutely perfect way to start each day. Dinner in the restaurant was also out of this world. No detail was left to chance. I would recommend this hotel a thousand times and can't wait to take my husband back!

My son booked this hotel, based on Trip Advisor reviews, and it was amazing! We arrived separately and I couldn't have asked for a more personal welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff; the attention to detail was outstanding. I have never stayed anywhere like this and I would recommend it unreservedly.
If I do return to Prague (this was my first visit), part of the pleasure of returning would be to stay at this hotel again.

We chose this hotel after reviewing Trip Advisor for our 4 day Prague getaway. Right after we made the booking we knew we made the right choice. Communication and service were outstanding, right down to the little details (car pickup, separate wifi for each room, little chocolates by the bed each night, complimentary bottle of wine and happy hour). Ivan, one of the concierge staff, was absolutely stellar; no request was too much. After learning it was our anniversary, we were treated to a chocolate cake one night. The restaurant, Terasa, is one of the best in the city and has a fantastic view. We loved our room (42) as we had a view and easy access to the balcony where we had a glass of wine and watched the sun set each evening. Located a 10 min walk from both Charles bridge and St Nicholas Cathedral, it is close and yet not too close to the city's hustle and bustle. One of the best hotels we have been to.

Room Tip: room 42 is perfect, has a good view and is a generous size, close to the restaurant and balcony

We were completely charmed by this wonderful boutique hotel. It's quiet setting, just slightly set apart from from the from the busy "tourist-y" areas, and peaceful ambiance added so much to our delightful stay in Prague.
They have done an amazing job of adding luxury and modernizing this historical building without erasing it's charm. Adding heated floors in the bathroom, wonderful shower & tub facilities, but leaving original beamed ceilings and wood floors, for example.
All the reviews about excellent service are true! From the welcome drink and private tour, afternoon wine & appetizers, and remembering personal preferences, all amazing. (I don't believe I've ever seen a "pillow menu" before!)
I see a few reviews that criticize the location -- it is, indeed, set a bit apart. But only just a bit. We could see St. Nicholas Cathedral from our window, and in a matter of a few minutes walk were at the church and the public square where restaurants and transportation and cash machines were readily available. Charles Bridge is also within easy walking distance, and Old Town just beyond. The car / cab who delivers you will stop short of the door, so your bags will be graciously transported to & from by the hotel staff. Because we love to walk, none of this was an issue to us.
It is literally at the base of the Castle, and in fact has a private entrance that leads directly into the Castle Gardens.
Oh, and about breakfast -- buy the breakfast! Just do it! We struggled with this one, 'cause we don't normally eat a huge breakfast. But no matter how else we worked it, we were spending as much or more as having it included. The view of the city is really outstanding from the restaurant, we so enjoyed lingering over coffee here. They serve everything imaginable, but -- if you want something that's not on the menu, simply request it.
I believe it's important to understand that this hotel is so highly rated because it is so unique. We travel allot, and we have stayed at many many luxury hotels ~ and many of them blur together in our memory. Somewhere like Golden Well is special because you FEEL like you're in Prague, it adds to the magic of the city, it is part of the experience. This is one of our favorite hotels of all time, a very memorable stay.

Dear SandSKapolei,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your stay at the Golden Well Hotel last year.

We were thrilled to welcome you to the hotel and even more delighted that despite sampling so many other hotels worldwide, we are one of the favorite for you. It is always lovely to read that a guest has enjoyed every part of their stay from the breakfast in our restaurant to the team who took care of all their needs.

We all look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel for another memorable experience and maybe some more walking in the royal gardens of the Prague Castle and touring the city.

Charming traditional retreat in 16th-century Emperor's residence, set beneath the walls of Prague Castle.

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.
