I spent one afternoon wandering through Mala Strana, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is, as many have noted, difficult to navigate ... even with a map I found it difficult to find my way through the maze of streets, but often the most interesting walks occur when you get lost or make a wrong turn! in general, there are are many green spaces, renaissance houses, baroque churches, cafes and restaurants to see and visit. Some specific 'must sees' include the Lennon Wall, Kampa Park, St. Nicholas church, Wallenstein Palace gardens, and the Church of Our Lady Victorious.Mala Strana is by no means 'tourist free', but it is still a pleasant escape from the throngs that frequent the main square. Wear a good pair of shoes (standard advice for Prague!), take a map (It will be of some help), enjoy the sights and sites and be prepared to get lost ... finding your way out is half the fun.

This is a great place to walk. Along the river you will see buildings dating back to the 17th century. Charming cobblestone back and side streets with restaurants, cafes and bars will persuade you to sit down and watch Prague go by. Lots to do and see including the KGB museum and the Lennon Wall.

We decided to return for the 5th time, 2002, 04, 06, 10, now 14. Still a lot to be seen, photographed and wandered. Always great to see what changed. Stay in an apartment on Vlasska. If I tell more, I'll be giving up a great place to the masses. lol

Our bed and breakfast was on this side of the river so we spent a lot of time here wandering the streets and going into the mostly junky tourist shops. We ate in this area 5 times out of the 6 nights we were in Prague, so the restaurants are pretty good. It is but a short walk up to the castle or to the Charles Bridge. You can easily go to Kampa Park under the bridge as well.
While it is still a busy area, it is definitely less frenetic than the Old Town.
