The hotel is about 2 min walk from the Malostranske Namesti tram stop, and convenient for getting around. You can even walk to Prague Castle! At less than 1min walk from the Charles Bridge, it's perfect if you want to get a good shot of the bridge early morning before all the crowds come in. The room we stayed in...

We could not have picked a better hotel. A street away from the famous Charles bridge, a beautiful quirky hotel, breakfast was typical continental. A small bar attached to the side which was busy every night mainly locals. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A comfortable nights sleep.

As the title says, it was a great location and the room (the executive suite) was very comfortable although we did not spend much time there. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, but I appreciated that they were not overly conversational.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
