You will not do better on location that this hotel, downside is carrying your luggage up the flights of stairs especially if you are on the top floor, but the room was quiet and spacious with contemporary style furnishings that would have suited a more modern property,however we really enjoyed this little find in Prague with the best loaction you can get. breakfast was 5 stars.....Go check it out for yourself.

This hotel is in a perfect location. The rooms are spotlessly clean, modern and tasteful. The staff were very obliging and the complimentary breakfast in the cafe next door was excellent.
A couple of negatives are that there are a lot of stairs(no lift) so would not suit some users. Secondly, no air conditioning, we were on the top floor and the room was exceedingly hot at night. There is a fan but that is noisy as was trying to leave the windows open. I would say this hotel would be perfect for cooler months and I am sure that for the superior quality the above factors may be acceptable.

For the money and location, I would not stay anywhere else in Prague than this boutique hotel. The rooms are beautiful and large (certainly the deluxe double and the suite which I have seen), the bathrooms fantastic and the service efficient and professional. Breakfast is in a diner which is also open to members of the public, and whilst it can get crowded, the staff are helpful and friendly enough to sort out any problems.

The hotel is a minute's walk away from Charles Bridge - but once inside, you don't get any hint of the crowds and noise outside.

Their sister hotel (the Domus Henrici) is also lovely - although it involves more of a walk uphill past the Castle (but is a few Euros cheaper).

The driver, who seems to operate for both hotels, is a really useful service: he will do trips to and from the airport, and any other driving you need whilst you are there - all much more cheaply and reliably than picking up local taxis.

I have to agree with the other review. This was an excellent find - so close to everything and by Prague standards - affordable. You are literally 50 metres to the Castle side of Charles Bridge -a 15 minute stroll from the astronomical clock, 15 minutes the other way to the Castle - the location can't be beat. You feel you are really in the centre of things yet the rooms yield little or no street noise. There is a free breakfast until 10am in the little cafe that attaches to the hotel but no room service (expected in such a small establishment), however the minibar is very affordable and there are coffee/tea making facilities in the room. This small hotel only has 8 rooms. I would strongly suggest one of the superior doubles (2nd and 3rd floors at the front) - trust me - it's worth the extra cost (and the review below is based on this type of room). There has been a residence on this site for 700 years yet the rooms are all completely renovated and modern on the inside with a large, comfortable king size bed, modern lighting, huge windows with great views, Satellite TV (though as in most of Prague - the only English language channels are BBC World, CNN, CNBC), CD/DVD Player, direct phone number and free internet - oh and the the front desk will even go out and get DVDs for you until midnight. The ceilings are very high - I think 12-14 feet and the room was very large with a separate anteroom for the closet, coatrack and mirror. The bathroom was wonderful. First off - the granite floors were heated as were the towel rails, there was an oversized bath - easily big enough for two, separate shower, fine toiletries, good hairdryer and thick towels/robes. I would highly reccomend this location unless you are a very light sleeper (The hall stairs are wood and can be heard in the room in the early morning but I was fine putting on the fan in the room drowning out the noise) or need an elevator to even get up 1 floor or you need air conditioning (might be the case in July). Staff are friendly, speak perfect English (don't forget your key if you are coming back late at night - the front desk is closed from midnight to 7am) and the car service is affordable and definitely worthwhile. There is also a sister hotel steps away from the castle entrance - Domus Henrici.

While I am an avid reader of TripAdvisor, this is my first review. The Domus Balthasar is in the top 5 hotels I have ever stayed in. If you want a lobby, go somewhere else, because there is only a small check in desk. The rooms although are enourmous with 16' ceilings. And the hotel is literally 50 feet from the Charles Bridge. I'm not sure waht our room number was, but ask for the corner room on the second floor, overlooking the street, right above the entrance. I can't imagine a better room in the hotel. There is no restaurant, but hotel guests get a free continental breakfast at the cafe right next door. I can't say enough about this incredible little hotel, my wife and I will enjoy the memories forever.
