4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2012

We were picked up at the airport without a hitch and arrived at the Domus Henrici after a journey of only about 20min which was great as we couldn't wait to get freshened up before setting off on foot to explore the city! The hotel its self is lovely our room was nice and spacious and a great base for our adventures in Prague. The only slight gripe we had was that the shower in our room didn't have a very good water pressure and the shower head wouldn't sit in its holder without spinning around and showering the wall. So we had to hold the shower by hand. This may have been something easily fixed but we didn't want to make any fuss and as we're pretty easy going it didn't detract from our lovely stay at this hotel. As other reviews state the area around the hotel is nice and quite away from the hustle bustle of the old town. Also its only a short walk to the KGB museum which was one of the highlights of our trip to Prague. Probably won't stay here again the next time we visit Prague as we like to try and see new things but we would recommend this hotel to friends and family. Although beware the the hill coming back up from the old town is very steep / lots of steps and therefore might not i could image would be testing for less active/mobile types, however you can get the 22 tram up from the square on this side of the Charles bridge and then its 5min walk downhill to the hotel.

We enjoyed the Domus Henrici after a two-week cruise through Europe. It met our expectations, after having enjoyed the luxury of the cruise. The included breakfasts were delicious and the variety was huge. The staff were so very helpful and gave us great tips to enjoy the Prague sights, as well as give us advice to return to the hotel with ease. It is located within walking distance of the palace where the views are spectacular. It is easily accessible to the hub of Old Town but far enough way to be out of the noise and congestion. The reasonably-priced room we booked turned out to be a suite complete with living room and jucuzzi bathtub. The only drawback was the weather wasn't warm enough to sit on the lovely veranda with patio lights. I will be recommending this hotel to friends/family planning a trip to Prague.

We visited Domus Henrici for a long weekend, 6.-9.9.2012.
We wanted a place with atmosphere and history, near the sights, but slightly away from the touristic merry-go-round of downtown.

The hotel was everything we could hope for. I love the way they've managed to combine an Unesco World Heritage-site with a modern and well functioning boutique hotel.
We had the suite on the upper terrace. The room (and especially the bathroom) were huge. From our left corner window we could see the citry lights. From the right one the scenery was almost pastoral with the monastery's bee hives and winery.

We even enjoyed the steep cobblestone walks to and from Charles Bridge / the town, but if you don't, there's a functioning tramline just around the corner.

They really aim to do their best for their customers. I had e-mailed beforehands of my coeliac disease. The night we arrived they were still searching for gluten free bread for the breakfast allthough I said I had brought some hardbread with me . The following morning there were fresh bread, hard bread and some corn flakes (full corn) on the table. Given the town, I don't think that was an easy task to accomplish!

I also want to recommend the shuttle service to/from the airoirt they provide. The driver, Milan, is very nice and informative, and the service smooth and reliable - and cheaper than a taxi!

Our two week visit to Prague was our annual vacation when we hope to relax and see places by foot while learning all we can about the people and their culture and cuisine. We used Domus Henrici as our home base. Our suite was spacious with a balcony overlooking beautiful Petrin Hill. The staff was available around the clock and was always very helpful with all our requests. They even provided breakfast for us early on our last morning without our asking so we could leave early for the airport. Located in the Hradcany (castle town) area, it is busy with tourists during the day because of its rich history and beauty but it is wonderfully quiet at night. Prague is hilly and the hotel is in the upper section but we had no problem walking to any area of the city in 15-20 minutes. Trams are available for those not wanting to venture on foot. Many restaurants are close to the hotel. Compared to other European countries we have visited, the prices of hotels, food, and guides are very reasonable. We highly recommend Domus Henrici for a stay during a visit to Prague.

We spent 5 nights in the Domus Henrici this summer (2012).
We used the transport provided by the hotel from the airport which is much easier than a taxi and you get a guaranteed price. Saves any hassle with Prague taxi drivers who have a dodgy reputation.
The hotel is in an old terraced building overlooking Petrin Hill. The views from the rooms at the back of the hotel make it seem like you’re in a rural retreat rather than close to the centre of Prague.
The rooms are well appointed and while not luxurious there is everything you need for a comfortable stay.
We loved the location, close to the Castle in a very old area of Prague with more historic buildings nearby than you can shake a stick at!
However, it is a 20 minute walk down to Charles Bridge & the Old Town and the hotel is in a quiet location, and that might not suit all travellers. For example on our first night we arrived at the hotel about 10pm and looked around the local area for something to eat for supper but all local restaurants were shut.
The walk down the hill to Mala Strana and the River is relatively easy and there are a number of different routes down; a walk through the castle being the most scenic and I’d recommend a stop at the Garden Café Taussig, for great views over the old vineyards to Charles Bridge and the City Centre. [Note that you can walk through the castle grounds for free]
However, walking back up to Domus Henrici is a different matter – there’s a LOT of steps! An alternative way up with a more gradual incline is Nerodova Street, with plenty of bars & cafes to stop at for a rest on a hot day. Most days we’d take the easy option and get the #22 tram back up to the hotel (get off at stop pohorelec) – the hotel will sell you combined tram & underground tickets.
Most evenings we ate down in Mala Strana, but there is also an excellent restaurant called Pecklo in the Stahov Monastery winecellars just up the road from the hotel that is well worth a visit for both the uniqueness of the location and the quality of the food- the hotel will book you a table.
Prague is a fascinating city with amazing buildings & history at every turn. It seems natural on a visit to Prague to stay in a hotel steeped in history and the domus henrici, being 600 years old, fits the bill perfectly.

At the beginning of July 2012 my wife and I stayed 3 nights at this delightful boutique hotel at the end of our holidays. We chose to stay here after careful review of Trip Advisor and because we had previously rented an apartment in the Florenc area, and wanted to have a contrasting location and experience of Prague, which we had thoroughly enjoyed. We had a lovely, large, well furnished room with views across the city and the nearby Mala Strana and Petrin Hill. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful, and the whole experience was a great way to end out time in Europe.

Room Tip: The hotel is set high on the edge of the southeast facing slope of the castle district hillside, and...

We returned from a trip to Prague this past week. We stayed at the Domus Henrici Hotel while we were there. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The private terrace that overlooks Petrin HIl is a wonderful spot to sit and soak in the beautiful views. I enjoyed eating my very tasty breakfast on the terrace and taking in the beauty of the rolling hills, green lush trees, meadows and castle-like structures. Just beautiful! The hotel is immaculate and very nicely decorated. It is very quiet and so a good night's rest was easy to get. The personnel were very helpful and very pleasant. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is very close to the Prague Castle and a little bit of a walk to the St. Charles Bridge. I would stay here again in a heart beat! Another quick note...this hotel was voted as one of the top 100 hotels in Europe.
