The Golden Well is a boutique 5-star hotel set on a hillside overlooking the city, below the walls of Prague Castle and surrounded by its Royal Gardens. The building dates back to the 16th century, and once belonged to Emperor Rudolf II.
The hotel is in the picturesque Mala Strána ("Little Quarter" or "Lesser Town") district -- notable for its Baroque churches, ancient burgher houses and quaint cobbled streets -- and within easy walking distance of museums, restaurants and sights. Prague Castle and its charming Royal Gardens are just a minute’s walk from the hotel. The Baroque Saint Nicholas (aka Santa Claus) church is within a 5-minute walk. The hotel is also a 7-minute walk from Praha Malostranká Metro, an 11-minute walk from the Charles Bridge and a 16-minute walk from the Old Town Square. For an authentic and romantic experience of Old Prague, wander around Mala Strána's lantern-lit streets at night, and be sure to sample some traditional Czech food and drink in the local restaurants and pubs.
Each of the 17 elegantly furnished, olde worlde-style rooms comes with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, mini bars, Nespresso machines, iPads and iPhone docks, and rainfall showers, and overlook the Royal Gardens, the courtyard garden, Petrin Hill or the city skyline. There are also two suites furnished with Richelieu antiques and extra sitting areas. Breakfast is included.
The three terraces (two outdoor and one indoor) in the Renaissance-/contemporary-style restaurant on the fourth floor offer breathtaking views over the city and River Vltava; it is regularly voted one of the country's best restaurants for its award-winning Czech and international cuisine. There is also a bar with exclusive champagnes and a lounge serving light refreshments. The hotel's amenities include welcome drinks on arrival, turndown and packing and unpacking services, aromatic baths and massage therapy (for a fee).
