The small cobbled lane leads to doors of a bastion or gatehouse. Inside is a gem. Or that is how we found it. The staff are very helpful rooms comfortable and with modern facilities and the restaurant quite exceptional especially if the weather is good and you enjoy views over the city. We loved the free afternoon tea which was...

Dear hollinslinda, We are always pleased to see returning customers as that means we hopefully met all your expectations about relaxing vacation. Thank you also for your kind words about our unique location - at Malá Strana, directly below Prague castle itself. Unfortunately we do not longer have private entrance to the castle anymore, due to castle security rescrictions, however...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This was a most excellent hotel experience. My husband and I stayed in three hotels in Prague over the course of two weeks, and this was by far our favorite. The location is excellent for quiet, privacy, and proximity to Mala Strana and Stare Mesto, tucked back past the parliament buildings in a scenic and charming neighborhood. It's elegantly decorated,...

Unparalleled character, exemplary comfort, a quiet and singularly atmospheric location close to all the wonders of Prague, and a staff that will do anything in their power to make your stay unforgettable. All in a very elegant package that will make it almost as much a pleasure to return to your lodgings as it is to explore this magnificent city.

Sometimes you look a place in order to be special, when it happens, the expectations tend to be really high. Well, I can say that our time in Golden Well exceed everything that we expect. The facilities are wonderful but the staff is the reason of an unforgettable place.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on our first visit to Prague. The hotel is ideally located below the palace walls and is convenient to a majority of the downtown sites. The staff was accommodating and available to special requests. We stayed in room 31 which was very comfortable if suffering from a rather tortured floorplan. The...

As many of the other reviews have clearly stated, this hotel offers a first class experience. Great service, beautiful clean rooms, and wonderful food. For us another key benefit is the location. This hotel is located at the base of the castle on the other side of the river from the Old Town, which has an entirely different feel. We...

We stayed here as a family, in 2 suites, for our 5 day holiday in Prague. The hotel occupies a number of the grand old terraced houses below the castle in Prague, centred around a small private courtyard, and approached from a cobbled street. There are glimpses of the lovely view of the old town from outward-facing windows. The interior...

We could not have been happier with our stay at the Golden Well Hotel. It is quaint, charming and in an idyllic location. Situated in Mala Strana just beneath the Prague castle, the hotel has an interesting history of its own. It feels more like staying in a local home rather than a hotel. I definitely recommend adding the daily...

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

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
