“Lives up to it's title, luxurious.”
Reviewed 21 August 2010

My partner and I picked this hotel after reading other reviews. We were not disappointed.
It is situated in one of the quieter areas of Prague, near to most of the embassies, not really a residential area at all.
The rooms are beautiful and very clean. They are decorated in a Gothic style, which is carried out throughout the hotel.
If the weather is OK, take breakfast in the garden, it is delightful
Both the girl's on reception and those that serve breakfast are a delight, and nothing is to much trouble. They are a credit to the hotel and to Lucie the manageress.
If you are interested in good food, try the Mylnec restaurant, which nestles under the Charles bridge and has stunning views. Marek Purkart the Michelin starred chef will delight your pallett just like the Alchymist hotel did to us.

We were very impressed with the hotel. Everything was perfect. Beautiful room, professional, helpful, friendly staff who 'went that bit further' with the service. Ideal place to explore the old town of Prague and Prague castle. Perfect place.

We stayed here 4 nights and had on the whole, a wonderful time.
Our visit was however marred by one incident involving a taxi arranged by the hotel. On the penultimate night i asked the receptionist for a fixed price taxi service to the airport. She said it would be 550 crowns. The taxi arrived next day and before getting in the cabf i mentioned to the driver about the fixed price agreement. She said no, price is by the meter. I returned to hotel and eventually we agreed i'd pay the fixed price 550 to the hotel and not to the taxi driver. The taxi driver proceeded to tthe airport at what can only be described as a "manic pace" - speeds of 130km/h in a 50 zone; aggresive and intimidating behaviour towards other road users etc. She arrived at the airport and took great delight in pointing out that the meter showed 540 crowns - i wonder what it would have read if she'd driven sensibly?
Please dont let my experiences with the taxi put you off this hotel. Just beware!

Dear guest,
First I would like to thank you for your feedback saying you had wonderful time during your 4 nights stay at our Alchymist Residence Nosticova. Thank you again for you kind words towards our hotel.

Regarding the comment about the problem with provided taxi to the airport. I am afraid there was the deep misunderstanding between the reception desk and your request. Our colleague at the reception desk understood you specifically asked for the local taxi instead of the hotel taxi. Unfortunately we do not have any influence on the quality of services provided by the local taxi companies (in your case company AAA). We sent complaining letter to the management of the company AAA and the answer was polite and showing the disagree with unprofessional behavior of the driver and for your information the driver have got financial punishment for it.

If any of our future guests will be reading this review and my answer, I would highly recommend choosing our hotel taxi, so we can guarantee the quality of provided service. The cost for transfer to the airport with our hotel taxi is 800 CZK and we can guarantee the professionalism, language skills of the driver, safe and comfort journey!


Accept our sincere apology again for the inconvenient experience you had at the end of your stay with the taxi driver of the company AAA.

Yours faithfully, Lucie and team

A belated honeymoon for my husband and myself was made extra special by this wonderful hidden gem of a hotel. Situated in Mala Strana on the West side of the city, the area is a lot less commercialised than Central Prague but within easy walking distance, The staff were lovely, and always ready to help. I will recommend this hotel to anybody and will return.

Many thanks to Dasha and the team at the Alcymist Nosticova for making our stay in Prague so exceptional. The suite was a wonderful and beautiful surprise. The service was first rate. Wending our way through the small streets of Mala Strana, we were rewarded with a very satisfying stay at one of the nicest small hotels we've ever stayed at. The garden is a pleasant oasis for a beer or a coffee and everything you need is within a few minute walk. Unless you need the size and familiarity of a U.S.-style chain hotel, this is a good choice.

... Dasha is actually great receptionist and I am very happy hers name was mentioned in your review.
Dear Guest, thank you very much. Our repetitive "THANKS" can start sound a little boring but believe us the level of the happiness when we are reading the feedback from our guest is always enormous and grateful.
We wish you all the best and hope to welcome you in the future again.
