If you want the ultimate in small, boutique type hotels, this one is a winner! It is located in a very quiet part of Prague, beside the Castle. The staff could not do enough for us. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and fruit in our room. The accommodations were very beautiful as well as comfortable. In the evening, your bed is turned down, curtains drawn and a small cake left by your pillow. There is a wonderful late afternoon reception with wine, coffee and light snacks. We loved everything about this hotel and hated to leave. Will come again, maybe the late fall next time!

Room Tip: Choose a room the the first floor. You can easily walk up one flight of stairs. The elevator was n...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the wonderful review. We are thrilled you're thoroughly satisfied with your stay. All our staff will be delighted with your compliments! We strive to give guests the royal treatment and are glad you felt pampered and comfortable. I hope that you had a chance to climb up to the Castle and the Royal Gardens from our rooftop terrace and if not, I recommend you to do so during your next visit.

We hope you come back soon!

Best regards,

Jiri Hlavaty

My husband and I spend 2 nights at the Golden Well Hotel as part of a 25th anniversary trip. It was our first trip to Prague. We loved everything about the hotel -- the service and special attention they gave us was amazing. We had the "romance package" which included roundtrip transportation to the airport, dinner at the hotel, and many special room treats. When you include all the extras, it really was a great value. From the smooth airport pick up, to the hotel greeting and welcome drink, to the amazing dinner and view from the rooftop restaurant, to the many delicious and romantic treats left in the room, to the incredible location (private entrance to Prague castle!) and easy walk to all sites, to the delicious breakfast....I could keep going on. Our room was comfortable, spacious and had a view overlooking the Prague Castle gardens. Wonderful, updated bathroom. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. They provided all the information we needed to make our stay perfect, including a great recommendation for a jazz club. Plus, they communicated very well during the reservation process and made me feel that everything would go smoothly as it did. We needed to leave before breakfast time on our check out day, and they gladly had breakfast bags ready to go for us. So many extras and personal notes made this a truly special place for us. We really enjoyed the city and would definitely stay at the Golden Well again if we return to Prague.

Can't give this hotel a stronger recommendation! Thank you to all the staff.

We spent three nights here and it's really really good. From check-in to check-out, the experience was always first class. Great beds, abundant food - even a free mini buffet in the afternoon to prevent you wilting - and very helpful staff. Simon deserves special mention as the hotel's PR man for Prague. He gave us a comprehensive tour and explanation of the immediate area and offered excellent advice on the best sights to see. The Terrace restaurant combined superb cooking with fabulous unrivalled views of the city, but book before you travel as it's very popular. Add to that the Golden Well's very safe location - it's in the government/diplomatic quarter - and you have total peace of mind. We loved it all and the owner's penchant for collecting art deco furniture and exclusive cognac/Armagnac was an added touch.

Room Tip: Contact the hotel direct. They can offer better deals than you might think.

Since the moment we checked in, every member of the staff (from the concierge to the maid to the waitress at breakfast) was always so attentive, anticipating our every need. Wonderful dinner and sightseeing recommendations were provided over a welcoming drink on the terrace overlooking beautiful Prague. The staff really made our visit so very special and their sincerity and kindness will definitely bring us back to Golden Well on our next visit! Nothing but smiles all around for this special place and the incredibly kind people who work here.

The back entrance to Prague castle through the gardens is a lovely way to avoid some crowds on your way to the sight.

Additionally, it is worth mentioning that the bedding and pillows were SO comfortable, and this is coming from someone very picky in terms of where she sleeps!

While visiting Prague with a friend, I had the great pleasure of staying two nights at the Golden Well. The staff was very friendly and professional. You could tell they were very concerned with making their guests feel pampered. The bed was to die for!!! I have never slept so soundly. And dinner on the roof with a not-to be-beat panoramic view was absolutely scrumptious! A lovely, quaint, quiet and perfectly located place to stay while in Prague.

We spent four wonderful nights here. From the moment of our arrival, we knew we were some place special. There are too many special touches/services the staff provides to list that make Golden Well THE place to stay while in Prague. The service provided by the staff was top notch and the accommodations superior. The location is ideal for sightseeing, dining, and shopping. We will definately stay here again when in Prague.

This is a weird review because we didn't stay here. We stayed in a over priced hotel in the wrong part of the city. We found the Golden Well by accident when trying to find a restaurant. The staff was really nice and gave us directions. All I could talk about all night is how cute that hotel was and I wished we were staying there. We really didn't like Prague due to the busyness of the city and I think if we ever went back we would prefer to be in that area. It's very peaceful and calm up there and still a very close walk to everything important.

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
