A truly memorable place to stay... we spent 5 weeks in Europe and this Hotel and these 4 nights were the highlight of the trip. Prague is a "must see" city, and the location of the Golden Well is fantastic; close to everything yet near the real life of the city where you can wander down the cobblestone streets and alleyways to your hearts content (but not necessarily for your feet! Luckily there are lots of shoe shops nearby if you forget your walking shoes). Say this after 3 weeks on cobblestones prior to this.
Service and atmosphere abound here and you are made to feel special from the moment you arrive - and attention to detail is amazing. Each day brings new surprises (can't tell you - you have to go and find it for yourself) but the little things they do are fantastic. Housekeeping staff are exceptional, and things like turning your bed down in the evening are a luxury I had only ever dreamed or heard of.. well it happens and with graciousness that is surprising.. and the other surprises that await you are ... just great
We took the opportunity to partake in the afternoon drinks, and this proved to be a great chance to meet new and interesting people from all around the world. Absolutely recommend this place for special memories.
Make sure you have at LEAST one meal at the restaurant and if can, go to the outdoor one - views are superb and out of peak season you may be lucky like we were ( the only people eating outdoors - as the weather was getting cooler) to have our own waiter and sommelier for the night - a truly magical experience. The night time vista over Prague is really special.
Absolutely make sure you have breakfast in the restaurant - start with the champagne if you want, but the choice of meals cooked to order is great... nothing is ever too much trouble. The restaurant staff go out of their way to please.
The sad day of leaving arrives, and the staff take the same care and attention to your departure as they did to your arrival - everything is made easy and realxed
it was easy to grow fond of all the staff here, since they were such an integral part of the experience of the Hotel and Prague. It is worth every cent you spend to experience this place, and I wouldn't swap these memories for anything.
- 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
