Golden Well Hotel

Traveller (1046)
Room & Suite (669)
Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
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.

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.

Fairy tales do exist in Prague. They take place just below the Prague Castle at the Golden Well Hotel. The word hotel is far too impersonal to describe how cozy and welcoming the Golden Well is. From arranging our airport pick up, to meeting my wife and I at the end of the

My partner and I recently spent 2 nights at this beautiful small property tucked just below Prague Castle. Check in was quick and our room was located on the 2nd floor overlooking Prague. The room was beautifully appointed with wood floors, comfortable bed and spacious washroom.

Taxi's from the station as best obtained from the front of the station. Walk straight out the front and keep going towards the road in front. There is a taxi rank along that road. Can agree price or use meter (better) Don't get taxi elsewhere as you'll get told some inflated price.

how far is this hotel from city center
It's about a ten minute slow walk to the center of everything. Close enough to see it all but far enough away to not hear it all.
