I stayed in Golden Well with my girlfriend in December 2011.
I picked the hotel by its incredible ranking on Tripadvisor, it was ranked best in the world in 2011! The expectations were through the roof, but the hotel didn't disappoint.
The breakfast was unbelievable - I cannot stress this enough - you have to get it, it's maybe the best thing about the hotel. Buffet + a la carte + dessert + great coffee selection.
Our room was great. Everything worked, when we arrived we received a bottle of wine, a cake and a bowl of fruit, which was refilled every day. The jacuzzi was enormous! A small problem I had was that maids entered our room in the evening when we were still there, but it wasn't a big deal.
I'd recommend the hotel to everyone. Everyone was very helpful without going over the top and becoming annoying (as service can be in luxury hotels).
The only glitch I had was at checkout - I prepaid for the hotel, but the check for mini-bar, tips etc. came larger then expected - they told me that it was because of exchange-rate fluctuations because I paid for the room in EUR, but I didn't really understand what was going on since I paid for the room in advance.
- 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
