Reviewed 13 July 2014

My wife & I plus another couple stayed 2 nights in this wonderful small hotel. It is ideally located near to Prague Castle and has fantastic views over the Old Town. The rooms are small but comfortable; no air-con but wasn't needed. The nearby brewery and restaurant are an added bonus. Free Wi-Fi works well. Breakfast choice is excellent. Highly recommended.

We stayed here two nights, amd it was a pretty satisfactory stay. There's no A/C, but the fans and the cool nights kept the rooms at a comfortable temperature. The breakfast buffet has a good variety of filling options.

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.

I really loved this place. The price was fantastic, and the location on the grounds of Strahov Monastery couldn't get much better. The view was unbelievable. It was right above Prague Castle, and the view of the rest of the old town was also great. The way the room was laid out was also interesting. The bathroom and a small living area with a desk and TV was on the floor with the entrance, and then the beds were in a loft above, also with a TV. You do get a bit of a wake up call with the church bells from the monastery ringing at 6AM. I didn't mind because it gives you the perfect excuse to wake up and go explore Prague. The bed was OK. The breakfast was good, with a whole bunch of variety. Some eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurt, pastries, breads, fruit, etc.. The guy working at the reception desk was also very helpful and accommodating.

Room Tip: The rooms on the upper floor have the lofts, so you have the great view of the city on the lower flo...

We stayed 2 nights, service was great, as well as accommodation and overall location. We payed for Standard double rooms, but were offered to upgrade to DeLuxe rooms for no extra cost ^_^ Receptionist was lovely, helped in any way she could. Really enjoyed the stay, will come back again :-)
The location is superb, right next to the Prague Castle, our bedroom had view of whole of Prague from one window and Petrin tower from another one.
PS: pillows are the best pillows ever :D (and I never get on with pillows)

Last weekend me and my family visited Prague. Our choice of hotel was Monastery, and we did not regret. Cozy rooms (1 4-p and 1 2-p), clean, nice bathrooms, good wi-fi. Very quiet area. Friendly and excellent staff. I did not what kind of breakfast we could expect (as I knew it was a little hotel), but got very positively surprised. Several kinds of bread, cereal, fruit, scrambled eggs, etc. In short, excellent.
Easy to get to downtown, either by tram or simply by walking.

Highly recommended place to stay for travellers in Prague

The location is good - away from the busy town centre but easy on 22 tram. It was not so easy to find the place when we arrived after dark.

I found the staff to be very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was excellent.

I was first placed in an attic room which I found claustrophobic because of the sloping ceiling and very small windows. There was an air conditioning unit for hot nights but it was too noisy for me to sleep. I asked for a change and was pleased to have a room on the first floor which was very comfortable. I would definitely return but not to an attic room.

Room Tip: Avoid the attic (2nd floor). There is no lift.
