Travelers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Charming traditional retreat in 16th-century Emperor's residence, set beneath the walls of Prague Castle. Wander up the cobbled, traffic-free streets to The Golden Well (U Zlate Studne), clinging to the wall in the shadow of Prague Castle, and you will uncover one of the city's best kept secrets. This modest collection of little inter-locking houses was once home to Emperor Rudolf II, and later the astronomer Tycho de Brahe. Sensitive renovation - has created a cosy yet refined hotel. The result is a pleasing balance of mod cons - internet access, satellite TV - and old style elegance.

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

We had high expectations but The Golden Well was even better than expected. The staff were abundantly friendly and helpful and the room was cosy and warm. The remote control toilet (with a heated seat!) was a bonus, as was the lovely lounge area with free canapés and wine between

A beautiful place to stay in Praha if you are looking for a quiet but still very central hotel. And breakfast in this hotel is a must! You get one of the best views of Praha, and in the Summer you can walk straight into the Kings Gardens! Enjoy 😊

Hi! We were fortunate enough to stay in your beautiful hotel and are happy to be returning (with friends!) Can you suggest a car transportation from the train station? Cheers!
Taxi's from the station as best obtained from the front of the station. Walk straight out the front and keep going towards the road in front. There is a taxi rank along that road. Can agree price or use meter (better) Don't get taxi elsewhere as you'll get told some inflated price.

how far is this hotel from city center
It's about a ten minute slow walk to the center of everything. Close enough to see it all but far enough away to not hear it all.
