At the Golden Scissors is an ideal location -- literally under the middle of the famous Charles Bridge, on a quiet "island" (really a small area with a canal on one side and the river on the other) called Na Kampa. This lovely little inn has a quiet, restful atmosphere while being an easy walk from the spectacular sights of Prague on either side of the bridge. The hotel's a refuge from the congested crowds of tourists in the old and new town, and you can't get lost -- just find the bridge and find your set of steps!
The rooms are charming and very clean, with hardwood floors, casement windows, blue-tiled bathrooms and Mitel-European-style low beds with fluffy comforters. The hotel faces a lovely facade of equally old pastel houses, with a courtyard-sized park between where we watched a street fair over the weekend.
The young staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. Breakfast includes breads, jams, cheeses, pate and sliced meat, juice, cereals and hard boiled eggs.
The restaurant is open for dinner --- we ate there one evening at the outdoor area under heat lamps while enjoying people-watching. The citrus chicken with mashed potatoes was delicious.
Prague is so jam-packed with tourists much of the time that we were very glad we didn't opt for a hotel in one of the major squares. At the Golden Scissors, while literally steps away from everything, was an oasis of calm.
