“Amazing - perfect in everyway!!”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

Myself and my partner are just back from a 3 night stay in Prague and we cannot wait to go back next year!

The hotel, the staff and the rooms all exceeded expectations - this is really a hidden gem in Prague! The location is second to none, a 15minute stroll over the bridge and through the cobbled streets to the Christmas markets and near the castle.

We booked the 'good luck' room and were offered a free upgrade to a suite on arrival, we were shown both the attic room that we originally reserved and the suite - we could choose either. As we were staying for 4 days we opted for the extra space that the suite offered but the attic rooms were georgous and we would of been delighted with this room even if an upgrade had not been available! (given the age of the house the attic rooms are a quite the trek up steep stairs so I would keep that mind when booking)

The room was spotless, it had a fabulous bathroom with heated floors, a seperate shower and deep set bath. It also had a small kitchen area with kettle, mini bar, microwave & hob.

Breakfast was in a little cafe attached to the hotel. The staff were so friendly and the food was lovely. There was a choice of fresh bagels, pastries, fruit, yoghurts etc from the buffet or if your preferred eggs and pancakes from the main menu.

The staff on reception were a joy to deal with and recommended a fabulous restaurant for my birthday dinner -'Bellevue'.
They handled tours/tickets and literally anything else you may require during your stay!

I wouldn't hesitate in booking this hotel again and really wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when visiting Prague.

We stayed in the Attic room from 22-26 November 2012. The room was surprisingly large and is at the top of the hotel - 76 steps. This didn't bother us (too much) but wouldn't be great for anyone with mobility problems. The room itself was surprisingly large (the photos undersell it) and stylishly furnished without being too self conscious about it. The mini bar was comprehensive and reasonably priced. Dvds can be borrowed from reception if needed. In summary it felt more like an upmarket studio flat - a quiet hideaway. Ideal for a romantic break.

The hotel is superbly situated 30m from Charles Bridge so you can get the best of both the Old Town and charming Mala Strana. The reception staff were extremely helpful with everything from ipod charging sockets to printing boarding passes. Breakfasts in the Bohemia Bagel next door were good and served with a smile. You can order from the menu as well as use the buffet.

All in all I can't fault it and would return again without hesitation. We paid 95 euros per night and I think this was excellent value for the location and service.

We stayed at the Domus Balthasar hotel for 3 nights and would highly recommend this boutique hotel. We stayed in Room 5 (more of a suite), which has a view of the Charles Bridge. The room was huge and very tastefully and comfortably decorated - lots of windows so very light and airy and a gorgeous beamed ceiling. The bathroom (and room) was very clean and the shower a great power shower!
The location is perfect - very close to Charles Bridge and all the sights (and restaurants and bars) but being on the slighly quieter (less frenetic) side of the river meant room very quiet at night. A perfect base to explore the city.
The staff were all extremely helpful - they organised the transfer to and from the airport for us which would recommend.

We stayed at the Domus Balthasar October 23 through October 29, 2012. We reserved one of the suite rooms, and it was exactly as depicted on the web site. We were traveling with another couple, and they reserved the other suite. We were all very happy with the rooms. The breakfast at the bagel place next door was excellent. Offered all the normal buffet items you would expect and then they would ask each morning if we would like an omlette or other hot item. They were very attentive to our needs. The hotel staff was also very helpful in getting us the bus tours we were wanting and arranging a car back to the airport on our last day. There was a small convenience store right next door to the hotel. You are literally steps away from the Charles Bridge. A short 5-10 minute walk puts you in old town. Would highly recommend this hotel!

This is a great hotel in a perfect location, literally on the Charles Bridge on the slightly less busy castle side. Service at all times is exemplary, as is the quality of the room (we were upgraded with the goo luck room deal). Breakfast in the cafe next door was also fabulous. I recommend it very highly indeed and would stay there again when I next go to Prague. Taxi driver working for hotel also an absolute gentleman.

Highly, highly recommend this hotel. Just got back from Prague and can not say enough about the experience at this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and nice and the room was amazing. Perfect location to everything you'll want to see in Prague. The breakfast was delicious and again, the staff was so kind. Don't think twice about staying here! :)
