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.

PRAGUE IS OPEN! IF YOU CAN - GO NOW!!! Low crowds and the dollar goes a long way!
 Golden Well provided me the best hotel experience I’ve had in my half century on this rock. 

We spent two short evenings in the Tycho Brache Suite, booked “The Romantic Package” and there was NO disappointment. The pictures will speak for themselves and between the room itself, the hospitality, and the view - it’s a great place to stay.

Sabina and Marek were superb and were waiting on us whenever we passed through the lobby and offered to take care of anything we needed. 

While we could have had breakfast at the hotel (we’re one of only two rooms booked at the time); we opted to go to their sister hotel (Aria) as it’s a great way to get out and explore. 

Aria is a few doors down from the Irish and US Embassies and provided us a great breakfast experience, their garden (A MUST DO), and the rooftop terrace - great for a drink.

I’ll have a separate review on Terasa U Zlate Studne (the restaurant above Golden Well) - it’ll be a lot like this one and the dinner as part of the Romantic Package was excellent.

When we returned to our room - as was arranged; a hot soak bath was waiting along with fruit, chocolates, candles, and rose petals in the bath and on the bed.

If you want to impress your partner - check it out; I promise it will be amazing.

I booked to stay here with my wife for our first wedding anniversary. Obviously I wanted to impress, and fortunately Golden Well Hotel did not disappoint! The hotel itself has a beautiful and cosy atmosphere, and the staff are incredibly polite and attentive. The restaurant inside the hotel was never too busy and served delicious breakfasts and dinner. The hotel is also very well located within walking distance of many sights and attractions. Would definitely recommend.

This hotel is no doubt excellent in good times. What is harder to achieve, and what it has done, is excel when times are tough. They helped me immensely when they easily could have chose not to do so--a lesser hotel would not have been there for me and my family as they were.I will be forever grateful to them for being an upstanding, honest dealing, and incredibly helpful establishment when they easily could have chosen not to be. That is what separates good hotels from truly great ones. Do not hesitate to book with this hotel They are the genuine article.

The Golden Well is a beautiful, well-appointed hotel that pays attention to all the details. Wonderful staff,beautiful and comfortable accommodations and delicious food. Great location near the castle and gorgeous views from the restaurant. From the treats left with the turn down service to the classical musical softly playing in the lovely room when you arrive the staff makes your visit a real pleasure.
