My wife and I recently spent a most enjoyable week at the Residence Monastery, which had been recommended highly to us by an Austrian friend with extensive travel experience in western and central Europe; we strongly second her high recommendation. It is a small, comfortable, and exceptionally friendly hotel, the ideal place for travelers who (like us) do not need -- and indeed don’t want -- all the fancy amenities of so-called luxury hotels. It is blissfully located away from the crowded, overly touristy areas of the city, on the grounds of the Strahov Monastery, high up on a hill, overlooking the Castle, St Vitus Cathedral, the Old Town, and the Moldau. As interesting as the central part of Prague is, we found it a distinct advantage to be able to get away from the tour groups and revelers and retreat to the quiet beauty of the monastery and the huge wooded hillside park next to it. We particularly enjoyed strolling through the monastery grounds and the park in the evenings, after a visit to the recently reopened monastery brewery, which I also recommend for its food as well as its craft beer, and which is happily located almost next door to the hotel. I can honestly say that the hotel and its location contributed enormously to making our stay in Prague a memorable one. Above all, I commend the hotel staff, especially the receptionist, Andrea, whose genuine friendliness and helpful guidance allowed us to make the most of our time in Prague, and left us with an indelible impression of the warmth and hospitality of the Czech people.
