Hostel Santini is located in a relatively quiet neighborhood - the Lesser Quarter of Prague. There are only a limited number of restaurants and groceries nearby. A word of caution by the way: there is a mini-market at Nerudova 15/204 which is a total rip-off for tourists; one apple would cost you 50 kc. Apparently this mini-market and the one up above the same street on Nerudova are also owned by the same people.
Luckily tram stations are close by. These trams can take you almost anything in Prague. They are very convenient and easy to use. A 32 kc ticket allows you to use Metro, trams and buses for 90 minutes. You can do grocery shopping using trams.
The hostel itself is nice as it is newly renovated in 2013. Even its WC is beautifully done with marble. Its 17 century ceiling is another attraction.
Most of the staff at the reception are very friendly and helpful. I find the lady from Jersey, US very helpful. The Asian receptionist is not that willing to help out customers though. The hostel should spend some money modifying its guest's door locks so that they would be too noisy when they are locked or unlocked. Some guests find them very annoying. It should also improve its air conditioning system.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our hostel is located in very historical center of Prague, between the Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle, in the baroque palace from the 17th century, the former residence of baroque architect Jan Blazej Santini. In 1705, he bought Valkounský house (no. 211) in Nerudova street for 3000 gold coins in cash and rebuilt it. 300 years later you have the opportunity to stay in the same palace...Entire palace was expertly renovated so you can still admire painted ceilings or original arches.
