I booked the Golden Well Hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and they were all correct. This is a superb boutique hotel with wonderful rooftop views over Prague. We were given a very warm welcome and tour of the hotel along with afternoon tea on the rooftop by the friendly receptionist.
Our room was delightfully well appointed with lovely little touches of wine with cheese and fruit plate and an evening sweet treat. The view from our bedroom window over Prague was magical. We opened our windows in the morning and heard birds singing in the trees nearby.
The buffet breakfast included in the room rate is sensational, the best of our entire trip and so beautifully presented. The waitresses were very friendly and most attentive.
We had dinner in the rooftop outdoor restaurant and the quality of food and waitering staff is exceptional.
All front reception staff were extremely pleasant, most helpful and friendly.
I would love to stay again and again at the Golden Well, thankyou for a wonderful stay.

The reviews are right on about the accommodating staff and great amenities. The breakfasts overlooking Prague are a wonderful way to start the day. Part of the charm is the out of the way location (a dead-end alley) and being across the river from the main tourist area, while still being a short walk. Those who are driving should be wary - the hotel area is all one-way streets and Google directions are useless. We enjoyed the cold bottle of nice Czech wine waiting in our room and the afternoon snacks offered. We stayed there four nights and were totally comfortable. Upon arriving, we found that their restaurant, noted for both the food and the view, was booked up for a week. Our disappointment was tempered by the realization that dinner there would have blasted our trip budget. Judging from the fancy dress we saw on diners, it is a place used for special occasions.

Room Tip: Ours was only on the second floor and overlooked the entrance alley, but it was still wonderful.

the service here is top notch. the staff are most accommodating and helpful whatever our questions or needs were. the restaurant has very wonderful views of the city and breakfasts are most enjoyable. the hotel area is quiet, and the afternoon snacks are a nice touch.

The airconditioing could be better and more Czech music and more Czech cultural decorations would be nice. these are minor points however..

Overall, an excellent hotel. would return without hesitating.

Prague is beautiful to visit but staying here is magic. The staff really go out of the way to make it special and intimate.

We like walking around cities so we enjoy that it is slightly away from the very busy old town square and Charles bridge. The bonus is that you get wonderful views from our room (41) and the breakfast room/restaurant.

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
