I am looking to stay at this hotel in mid-August. I'm not at all afraid of walking and happy to do so, but as a solo traveller I would just like to ask how safe it is walking back through the Mala Strana district at night?How long would it take to walk uphill roughly? I have seen that tram 22 goes to the hotel in the day but is there a night tram that goes as far as the castle and if so, is that safe too?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Hello, just to confirm what everyone has said, it is about twenty minutes walk from King Charles Bridge, and I never felt unsafe. There are usually tourists about even quite late at night, and plenty of bars etc and the street is well lit.
Enjoy your stay!
Hello, I was also solo traveler who stay at this nice hotel for 3 nights , for walking to the Charles bridge and old town it just took 20 minutes which I 'd like it rather than tram since on the way there are lots of beautiful shops and coffe shops and also the way is so crowded that even at 11:00 pm there are lot of tourist and people which makes it safe enough to walk at the nights , for the castle I had the chance to visit it for 1 time and with a daily tour so I went by bus and it took 5 minute from hotel. The hotel reception also was so helpful for me from reserving a proper room until arranging great tour and airport shuttle and ....Generally I strongly recommend you this hotel as a solo traveller.
It takes about 15-20 mins to walk from the king Charles Bridge .. depending on your fitness level.. Steve
Dear Sally, I can honestly say I did not feel unsafe at all. There were plenty of other people on the route back to the hotel. We did not use the trams but I do recall trams at the terminus by the cathedral square about 11pm. The cathedral is about 400-500m from the hotel, passing shops and some bars. Hope this helps.. Steve
it's quite safe to work from downtown to Hotel - the streets are quite crowded, especially along the main st which goes to Hotel.
Alternative option is tramway which is working at night ... but you also have to walk down appr. 700 yds ... No risky at all in any case.
