Since Prague was going to be the last city on our trip, I decided that we should spend a little more money and stay somewhere truly historic. My parents (who are Czech) joined us on our last leg before flying back to Canada - so I needed a suite that held 5 people. After much searching I found the U Zlate Studny. We had the suite with the painted ceilings and HUGE bathroom. We only stayed two nights but it was great. We were right in the centre of it all and hardly evered noticed the noise at night (except for a few minutes when the bars let out :) - we even slept with the windows open. After touring for the day it was nice to just slip into the hotel for a rest without having to walk to far. (especially with a 5 year old) The breakfasts were great too.

The only draw back was access. There is ALOT of road construction in the area right now. Even cab drivers can't get to the hotel. But just down the street is a small square where cabbies and cars can park for a few minutes. We had a car rental so we parked in the square, unloaded our bags, and then took the car back to the agency.

After looking at many hotels and reviews in Prague for months, U Zlate Studny kept looking the best. It is great that you can choose your room from the video on their website. Just book early as they are popular.
It was everything we expected, friendly, helpful staff, comfortable large room, great atmosphere around the hotel and walking distance to everything.
From our front window we could watch the tourists taking photos of this historical building.
The breakfast room is quaint and cosy with a buffet breakfast that is quite sufficient and delicious.
We would love to come back to Prague sometime and stay at U Zlate Studny.

This charming little hotel is right in the old town, on the main street that goes from the main square to the Charles Bridge. Very small, with great service. Our room was very large, with a high ceilings, sitting area, a table, a fold out extra bed, and a little foyer. The bathroom was surprizingly large and updated. Three of us were very comfortable. Breakfast was very good too and on a day we had to leave early, they opened the room for us. The restaurant was closed when we were there.
The only drawback is that this hotel is right in the middle of the tourist routes and it seems like a festival is going on right outside the lobby all the time. I was worried about noise at night, but it turned out not to be a big problem. Just closed the window and turned on the AC. Just a block away, the town was pretty quiet. The internet in the room was spotty.

Nestled beneath Prague's sprawling castle, between a bustling urban environment and the castle gardens, is this jewel of a small hotel. Created from adjacent historic buildings, the hotel offers a charm and elegance that is seldom experienced, even in this part of the world. Under independent management, U Zlate Studny has its own distinctive style, punctuated by comfort, delightful service, and tranquility. The view from the restaurant balcony is incomparable, as well as the cuisine and comfort. Among the many amenities is an excellent selection of German TV channels. Seriously consider this hotel on your next visit to Prague.

This hotel was located within walking minutes of all of the main attractions (Old Town Square & Charles Bridge). Our room for a family of 4 was very comfortable with charming decor and plenty of room (2 room suite actually). The staff went out of their way to answer all of our questions and even got competitive taxi rates when we wanted to visit the local Harley Davidson dealer about 5 km away. The breakfast was small but very acceptable and included scrambled eggs, bacon or ham upon request. The price is very fair for the location and accomodations. When returning to Prague I will simply book a room (hopefully the same room) at this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for five nights for our 10th wedding anniversary. They upgraded us to a beautiful suite. It was bigger than our apartment in NYC. It's a small hotel, eight rooms in all. It's very private, we only saw other people at breakfast. The breakfast was great, meats, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, eggs, bacon, or sausage. Everyone who worked there was very nice, and helped us whenever we had a question. The location is great, right in between the Charles Bridge and Old Town Square. We loved Prague, there are a few things to be aware of, such as the taxi drivers. They are not all regulated and will charge you outrageous prices. The hotel will call a repeatable taxi for you if you need one. Right around the corner from the hotel is a little place where you can get a trdelnik, which is a sweet pastry, dough rolled ,baked , and topped with sugar, cinnamon and or almonds. I had so many when we were there. I miss our "apartment" in Prague all ready, and can't wait to go back!

When my wife and I were looking for a hotel in the old part of Prague, we found a hotel U Zlate studny, in Karlova street. This family run hotel is centrally located , short walk to the Charles bridge, castle , old town square and the many other interesting attractions in Prague. The hotel is small, only 8 rooms.

All rooms are spacious and well equipped with antiques (some copy) furniture. Our room was a sleeping space and a very good living area. Good bathroom with shower.

Breakfast is good and served in very attractive room.

The staff is very helpful and willing to guide, and point out interesting places and good restaurants.

U ZLATE STUDNY, is a place where I would stay again in Prague.
