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.
