After 5 glorious nights at this hotel, we decided that on our next trip to Europe we will come back to Prague just to stay here.
I will echo what so many others have said here - the staff, the service, the location, the rooms - everything was perfect. I have stayed at many nice hotels. The reason this one is the best is the combination of the quality of the staff, the rooms, the fact that as a boutique hotel it offers a more personalized service, and the city of Prague. Oh, and the restaurant - cannot forget the restaurant.
I recommend getting the included breakfast, which is huge and very good. We never had to have lunch. The waitresses were very attentive.
We spent every evening lounging on the sofa on the bar terrace, drinking wine and looking at the views. For most of those nights we were tended to by Jiri, who served us wine, brought me blankets when it got colder and essentially made sure we wanted for nothing. One night we had dinner in the restaurant and on another we had it on this terrace, where we were the only people there. I simply cannot find the words to accurately describe how special and romantic this setting is.
Like so many other reviewers, I believe this hotel is the nicest place I have ever stayed, and likely ever will. Even if I don't want another visit to the city of Prague, I would come here to experience this hotel again. I wish Canada was not so far away...
- 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
