I totally agree with everyone else who has reviewed this hotel. It really is AMAZING! We loved the location, tucked away up a little cobbled alleyway with a serene, quiet, laid back atmosphere. From the moment we arrived, we felt special. It was my 40th birthday and also our 10th wedding anniversary so we'd hoped to have a wonderful experience and we got it! Nothing was too much trouble for Ayman, who was genuinely dedicated to ensuring that we had a lovely stay. It's so rare to find that level of customer service and we greatly appreciated it (particularly the champagne, strawberries and cake that arrived in our room on my birthday - complimentary from the hotel!)
As for Prague - wow, what a place. It oozes history and culture, particularly music (the state opera house is the best venue I have ever experienced for opera - acoustics, atmosphere, high quality singing... fantastic). And if you like a good story and a really personal sense of history, then you must visit the Lobkovitz Palace Museum (part of the castle complex). It contains the collections of a family whose ancestors can be traced back to the 15th century. These were taken from them by the Nazis and then the Communists and only restored to them in 1989. I found it really moving - particularly to gaze on Mozart's and Beethoven's original scores which are part of the collection. How amazing for the current family to be part of this amazing historical heritage!
- 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
