My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Dum U Velky Boty and I'd recommend it to any friend or family member visiting Prague. We arrived in the late afternoon exhausted from our flights and therefore feeling a bit chilled by the November weather, and were delighted when Dominic offered us a nice big fresh pot of tea. It...

From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out the service was outstanding! Room was gorgeous, breakfast was delicious and breakfast hours were adjusted to accommodate our early flight. Perfect location!

We stayed there for 4nights, the staff is really nice the owner very friendly. We had the 3d floor suite, it was really big and comfortable. We visited everything by foot from the hotel, it is well located. (There's tram nearby) Really lovely stay and lovely staff and house.

This hotel was recommended by a friend living in Prague, so we tried. It's been a wonderful experience. Everybody was kind, helpful. It's ideally situated in a very very calm area, next to most embassies, a few minutes walk to the Prague Castle (Hrad) and the hills of Petrin tower. Rooms are quite big, we had a nice views on...

Our stay here was everything I expected from the reviews. Lovely room, helpful and welcoming staff, nice breakfast included. I enjoyed staying on the edge of Mala Strana as it was quiet but only a 15 minute walk to the old town and very useful tram links for when we didn't feel like walking

We picked this place because it did so well on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. It’s family run. Everyone there was very friendly and very helpful. They all spoke excellent English, booked things, gave advice etc. The rooms are furnished with Czech traditional furniture. The beds were very comfortable. Ours had a large and very ornamental ceramic heating device... More

We have done a lot of travelling in Europe and this is one of the best places we have stayed in. Our room, the Terrace Room, was large, beautiful, and functional. The terrace was amazing. It's a lovely outdoor space where we were serenaded by local church bells and, one night, a small band of accordion, fiddle, and bass, that... More

We were in the terrace room. Yes, it is a climb up three floors. But the terrace was so nice. We enjoyed the old fashioned room with a comfortable bed. Although there was no air conditioning, the room stayed cool enough for us with only a fan in the 85 degree weather. A complete breakfast each morning. Very helpful staff.... More

This is such a memorable hotel - the location (quiet square but an easy walk to Charles Bridge and central sites), the building (an old home remodeled for comfort but retaining history and style of a previous era), but The Hotel at the Big Boot is particularly memorable for the people. The host, Jan Rippl is welcoming, his young staff... More

Hate to be a bore... but yes, fantastic all around! From the moment of arrival I knew I was in the right place. On my way to Poland I came through Prague both beginning and end of my journey.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
