The Domus Henrici was a wonderful haven in Prague. As others have mentioned, this section of the city would be my #1 choice for view, peace and good dining. It really was an ideal location, and I relished the walk uphill for a little exercise—although, as has been mentioned, the tram lets you off about 20 yards from the hotel if you feel less inclined to walk.

Every staff member we encountered at the Domus Henrici was exceedingly gracious. When the internet cable connection would not work in our room, they allowed us to connect in their office at will. On the warm first night of our stay, we were immediately given a fan. Our room had unbelievable views (the famous room #6, #5 has good views as well), and gave us plenty of space to unpack and spread out. The décor was understated and sophisticated, leaving the lovely surroundings to be sufficiently enjoyed. At night the beautiful monastery up the hill is dramatically uplit, and the city lights are reflected in the Vlatava river. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very large. There was a LCD TV and a mini-frig in our room. We even had a small covered terrace outside our front door, and there is a separate entryway that you can close off which further adds to one’s sense of utter privacy. I can’t imagine that there is a bad room in the house. Breakfast is fantastic—I especially remember the fresh, hard-boiled eggs. The online photos are accurate representations of the property.

Our stay was not without glitches (someone forgot to switch on our hot water, some amenities were missing from the room and laundry service was unavailable), but this was offset by the very real concerns and efforts by the staff at Domus Henrici to rectify the mistakes. This attitude holds a lot of currency with us, and in the end, we barely remember that anything went wrong.

Prague is a lovely, historical city. It has a feel that is at once mysterious and somewhat haunting. It offers unusual art and architecture—I wish we’d had a bit better weather with which to enjoy exploring. I highly recommend a restaurant down the hill from the Henrici whose name translates to “The Three Violins,” we left their card with the hotel.

The Domus Henrici is a shining example of what true hospitality is all about.

The absolute highlight of my trip to Europe this year was my stay at the Domus Henrici in Prague. I cannot praise this hotel enough. The staff were a delight, and this 8 room boutique hotel was immaculate, with wonderful attention to detail, comfort and service. I felt completely at home in room # 6 - a DeLuxe Double room which offers the most stunning views of Prague. The location in Hradcany by Prague Castle was perfect and completely silent at night, with no street noise (a rarity in any large city). Breakfast was excellent, with an abundance of choice in hot & cold dishes in a relaxing, beautifully decorated parlour. The hotel staff recommended several local restaurants for evening dining and ALL offered delicous food at exceptional prices. In addition they could arrange everything from Opera Performances to tram tickets.

The hotel also offers an honest and reliable private taxi service for transfers, sightseeing and day trips. A special thanks to Milan, who was a pleasure to deal with.

The centre of Prague was a beautiful walk downhill through Hradcany & Mala Strana and we explored the city easily on foot. The easiest way to return to the hotel at night is to take the tram back up the hill, which stops only a couple of minutes walk back to the hotel.

Domus Henrici is divine, and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. I will most definitely be returning!!

Great location - next to the castle and Loreto. That does mean that you are on top of a steep hill and have an easy walk down to the Charles Bridge but a very steep walk up if you dont get the prentiful and cheap trams. We walked (a couple of times a day) as it also meant that we could continue to pig out on ann the great food and walk it off. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel had an excellent ambience. Breafast was good. We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to all.

The Domus Henrici is absolutely delightful. Built in the 1300's, the villa has been remodelled as a very private inn. (Read the interesting history on their site.) We stayed in a suite, which was as big as an apartment, with hardwood floors, huge bath, living room, fluffy duvets, terry-cloth robes, cable tv, phone, hairdryer, minibar, and a generous breakfast included. You can check your email at the desk. The room was very private, we almost never saw other guests. Nothing could be better than coffee on the large terraces overlooking the city. (The weather was too cold when we were there...we ate in the quiet dining room at the front of the hotel!) The staff is gracious and welcoming...always around to help, but never intrusive.

The location is better than you might think when you look at the map. You soon realize that you would never want to stay anywhere in Prague but Hradcanny. Expensive hotels across the bridge, near the clock and city centre, are close to tourist shops, crowded restaurants and MOBS of tourists, even in November. We were so happy to come home to our charming hotel right up the cobble stones from the castle and near Loreta Monastery. Eat at Tosca across the street (YUM!) or some of the other little restaurants close by. We never had a bad meal in this area. Explore the tiny pubs tucked away down narrow steps. Look for the one right up from the hotel. It has amazing views of Petrin Hill and the city. Pop into the local artist shops on the way up to the tram. Or, just walk down to the city, passing antique shops and galleries. The views are astounding. (The walk back is quite vigorous...steep and hundreds of steps! A great workout if you want it, but the tram is much easier on the way home.)

The tram (we usually took the #22 and #23) stops every few minutes right up the hill, only a few blocks from your front door, (right across the street from the Hotel Savoy.) Hop on board, and in just a few minutes, you easily join the crowds down below for the day. The tram usually runs until midnight. The hotel will arrange a safe cab, but this is really only necessary for the airport.

Bring comfortable shoes (spikes don't go well with cobblestones) and enjoy this city dripping in culture. Almost everyone speaks English, and menus are written in many languages. People are helpful and kind. Concerts and operas are everywhere, every night. Take in at least one...tickets are easy to get. Architecture, as far as you can see, from the Middle Ages to present, is overwhelming. Don't miss the Strahov Monastery and Library (AMAZING!) as you walk up Petrin Hill. Consider going outside the city. We took an hour long train ride along the river to one of the other castles in a nearby village, Karlstejn. This day was spectacular in November...not crowded, beautiful countryside. The walk up to the castle alone was worth the trip. We stayed a week and fell in love with PRAHA!!! Enjoy your visit!

We have stayed at the Domus Henrici in Prague three different times, twice on three-day visits and one Christmas for a week. It is a small hotel located between the Loreto and the Castle. There are eight or ten rooms ranging in price from the equivalent of 95 euro to about 200 euros per night. The prices differ according to the size of room and the season. A huge breakfast buffet is included in the price of the room. All the rooms are tastefully decorated; the larger rooms have huge bathrooms with a large tub. Smaller rooms have only a shower. As the name on their web page implies (------------------), the Domus Henrici is hardly noticed from the street, but once inside the visitor discovers an inviting home-away-from-home in Prague that is a quiet refuge. The walk down to Mala Strana is easy, and Tram 22 will drop you off only a few minutes away on your trip back. In addition, for other transportation needs, the owner's husband is an HONEST taxi driver who can arrange pick-ups, drop-offs, and visits to places near and far. To see more from our trips to Prague, go to ---------------------- Choose "Europe to the East" from 1998 or "Prague Christmas." E-mail warobison at aol.com for any specific questions.
