Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Opened in October 2014, the Hotel Golden Key is an intimate boutique hotel in a top location, just a five-minute stroll from Prague Castle. Recently transformed into a 4-star hotel, the 13th-century building was once a locksmith's workshop (note the glittering key above the door). 

The property is on picturesque Nerudova Street, in the heart of the Castle District. This winding cobblestone road is lined with historic buildings and forms part of the original coronation route of Czech monarchs. Walk just five minutes uphill to the grand square in front of the castle, or stroll 15 minutes through Mala Strana, down to Charles Bridge and across the river to the Old Town.

Breakfast is provided daily and includes traditional locally sourced fare. After a day of sightseeing, guests can relax in The Club lounge or enjoy the sun in the peaceful courtyard garden. The hotel also has its own gym and sauna, plus in-room massages can be arranged on request.

The refurbished guest rooms have a modern feel despite the historic setting, with contemporary beds, wooden floors, free Wi-Fi and coffee-making facilities. Deluxe Rooms also offer Illy coffee and some rooms have antique furniture and restored 16th-century wooden ceilings. Views over the city's terra-cotta rooftops are excellent, and the best rooms offer peeks at Prague Castle or the hilltop Petrin Lookout Tower in the distance.

Other Comments: The staff could have offered everyone for a choice of coffee but he didn't. Instead we had to ask him. Several of us were not pleased at this service. He seems to try to ignore offering us coffee when clearly there isn't self serve coffee.

Enjoyed Most: The room was great and the breakfast was pretty good too.
Other Comments: The location is perfect for a nice walk. Caution it is up the hill from the public transportation which is annoying upon arrival if you are traveling via public transportation. But once you get there and up to your room all was forgiven. The hotel overall was very nice, clean and smelled fresh. It's cute and a little quirky. The watch out for the stairs as they can be a little uneven. I would definitely stay there again, assuming I could get the same room. I had others that didn't like their room as much as I enjoyed mine.

Enjoyed Most: The building is beautiful, and completely remodeled with great taste. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is plentiful and enjoyable. We went there for our wedding anniversary and on arrival at the room we found Yea we had prepared a surprise: The entire floor was sprinkled with rose petals, the room and bathroom were lit with small candles, and they had prepared a bottle champagne with two glasses and a greeting on behalf of the hotel staff.
Other Comments: They did everything they could to make us comfortable and happy ( and indeed they succeed).
