Similar to the other reviews we just returned from a fabulout stay. The free breakfast is grand, the afternoon snacks are great and they just added a free Nespresso machine in the lounge. The lounge was never crowded and we found it a great way to connect with fellow travelers. The direct access to the Castle gardens is unbelievable and we found the location close enough to walk to every tourist point.
The only caveat we offer is that you need to be somewhat physically fit to stay at the hotel. The last walk up to the hotel is uphill on cobblestones. There is only a tub in the room -- it is quite large with a hand shower -- but can be difficult getting in and out of and not as easy to use as a shower. Inside you can use an elevator to avoid the polished stairs. We loved our stay but I would suggest it more appropriate for the active traveler.
- 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
