I'll start at the beginning.... I took my husband here for his 40th Birthday and from the moment we walked through the door we were well looked after. Checking was nice and easy then Barbora took us for a tour of the hotel (someone else took care of our bags) and for a complimentary drink upstairs in the restaurant -...

I originally stayed at the Golden Well during my first visit to Prague eight years ago. It was fantastic then and equally great now. The Golden Well continues to be one of my favorite boutique hotels in Europe. The rooms are comfortable, the service is excellent and the location is terrific. I especially enjoy the breakfast overlooking the city. It...

The service here is exceptional! There isn't anything one wants or needs as your wishes are granted! A great location tucked away yet close enough to walk this great city! My stay at the Golden Well was amazing and I left thinking when will I be back.

This is a very nice boutique hotel situated at the base of the Prague Hotel. It is hidden away in a quiet corner street that even the taxis or transport find difficult to reach the front door. The staff are excellent and their main focus is to ensure that your stay is as good and pleasant as it can be....

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
