Travellers' Choice 2019 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.

Dear DrewDrewDrewDrewDrew, first of all we would like you to check again if you are sure you wrote the review for the right hotel? This is the first time we ever got such a horrible comment which makes us think you must be mistaken. We absolutely cherish each comment and yes we do get a bad review from time to time from a guest who has complained during his stay. Never we had a guest who did not complain during the stay and then wrote about such a horrible experience staying with us. This really ruins our reputation that has been built for over a decade on Tripadvisor. We literally doubt you stayed at the Golden Well Hotel. Also please feel free to contact me if you would like to comment about your stay any further to my email: michal.motycka@goldenwell.cz Kind regards, Michal Motyčka Director of Operations

Golden Well is a very comfortable small hotel in the older section (lesser town) of Prague, tucked under the palace grounds. It is quiet and accessible via walking to all spots in central Prague (old town & new town) on both sides of the river. It's breakfast buffet is

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.
