We celebrated my birthday with the tasting menu at the restaurant in the Golden Well Hotel near Prague Castle. The diversity, presentation, sequencing, and taste of the many dishes was out of this world. The food/local wines parings were superb! The view of the city, especially when it is getting dark is amazing!

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,...

The service, the room quality, the location is all absolutely wonderful. Oddly enough this boutique hotel has the most well stocked mini bars in Europe. Truly exceptional. We will be back for a third time very soon!!!

We arrived at the Golden Well very late at night -- around 12:30 a.m. We were exhausted, having flown from JFK airport to Lisbon to Prague. The Golden Well responded with a wonderful plate of cheeses, bread and champagne to welcome we weary travelers. Enya was playing soothing music on an iPod device as we entered our room. My best...

We spent one night at Golden Well during our trip to Prague. The location is the best in town. The service is perfect. The deputy manager when we arrived was the best one we have ever had.

The small cobbled lane leads to doors of a bastion or gatehouse. Inside is a gem. Or that is how we found it.

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.

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
