Booked on the strength of the reviews on this site, Golden Well didn't disappoint. From the complimentary bubbles to the way our bags were whisked away to our room, we received a very warm welcome that instantly put us at ease. The staff here are a delight - really sweet people to whom nothing seemed to be any trouble. The service is easily the best thing about Golden Well - and there's still a very great deal to recommend it.
The location of the hotel, in the heart of the castle quarter, is perfect. The hotel itself is a mix of old maps of Prague, Porsche designed furniture, attractive artwork and winding corridors - a world away from the chrome and coolness of a larger chain hotel, it feels very homely and warm while remaining plush and stylish. At 4pm, drinks and snacks are served in a sociable communal area, a great opportunity to meet other guests.
Our room was charming - a ridiculously comfortable bed and all the usual trimmings, including a big DVD collection at reception in case a quiet night in was required. The evening turn-down service in particular is a sweet touch.
The breakfast was excellent - sufficient amounts of really good food are available on the inclusive price with the room to ensure you'll survive an active day.
Worth the money, this is one of the best hotel stays I've ever experienced.
- 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
