Reviewed 29 May 2009

Spent a couple of nights at the Alchymist, an experience which added considerably to our enjoyment of this lovely city.

The hotel is housed in an historic old building down a quiet street in Mala Strana. It is an easy walk to the city centre over Charles Bridge. We had one of the two deluxe rooms on the top floor of the building, with views over the rooftops to Prague castle and St Vitus’s cathedral. The room was very well equipped and decorated, with a large bathroom (although no bathtub). Bottled water, bathrobes and slippers were provided.
There was a private sitting room, kitchen and dining area, but these were shared with the other top floor room and we didn’t use them.

Dinner in the restaurant was excellent; a modern, Mediterranean menu, majoring on seafood (a bit odd, considering how far Prague is inland). Alfresco meals and drinks are served in the pleasant garden.

The decor of the entire hotel is astonishing; just on the tasteful side of over the top.

This is an extremely good small hotel, well kept and presented, with an excellent, friendly staff. I recommend it very highly.

Stayed: May 2009, travelled as a couple

Very beautiful hotel with pleasant staff (especially in the reception) .
Rooms are very big and comfortable, have nice view.
Cleanliness on high level only restaurant in the garden is terrible. We had to wait for our dishes about one hour and for the bill almost half an hour. I wolud like to recomment this hotel but not restaurant in the garden.

I would like to thank you for finding the time to share your experience with us, for your perception of your stay. Thank you for your positive comments about the hotel staff. We appreciate it a lot. Regarding your complain about the Alchymist Garden and bad service given during your stay, we would like to kindly apologize and clarify what was the reason.So far, this was the only negative remark on our restaurant service, but we do understand your disappointment and agree with the fact, that at the time you had a dinner, the service was not perfect.The only reason why, was, that on that day we were short on staff, due to illness. We had to find somebody else instead of them, but unfortunately could not manage in just a few hours.
Our apologies, again, for your unfavourable experience.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in our Alchymist Garden to replace the negative impression with a more positive one.
Yours sincerely, Lucie Nizka, Hotel Manager

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and loved it! The location is in a quiet neighborhood yet close enough to walk to many of the city's main attractions (Prague castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, etc.) Staff was friendly, helpful and spoke english. Our room was spacious!, decorated in old world style, with fabric walls, gilded details, chandelier, old paintings, very ornate. One of the best hotels in Europe!

We have spent 2 nights in this hotel and just loved it. The room and bathroom were spacious (we were in room 312). We even had a third small room which was a kitchen. The location is very good - 5min walk through small streets to the Karlsbridge. Opposite the hotel, there is a small garden where you can have dinner or drinks. It's perfect to chill out after a day of sightseeing. We also used the spa in the sister hotel (Alchymist Grand Hotel) which is 5min walk. There is a small fitness studio, small pool and sauna. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We will certainly come back to this hotel again.

This hotel is one of my favorites not only in Prague but in entire Europe. The atmosphere of the hotel is almost unreal and an invalueable addition to the mystique that Prague as city already offers.

The Rooms are extremely well decorated with romantic design and luxury furniture. There are only 14 rooms in the hotel so you will feel special allready from the beginning of your stay. The Service is hight above average and the kind staff helped me a lot during my last weekend in Prauge.

Location is absolutely fantastic. Just a few blocks away from Charles Bridge. The hotel is located in a calm street and is a great hideaway from the busy tourist walks. Maybe thats why celebrities use to stay here. Nosticova is located right in the middle of Mala Strana, one of Europes most romantic locations.

If you stay here I would also recommend the outdoor restaurant that belongs to the hotel. Very nice and romantic.
