It is a boutique hotel. The entrance, arrival area is deceptive and small. How ever, they make up by the spacious large rooms, and modern bath rooms and toilets. The restaurant, in the basement is like a den and quaintly coloured in a moulin rouge kind of way! The bedrooms are large, high ceiling, old fashioned painted borders, nice big...

Lovely quaint hotel right in the centre of Prague next to Charles Bridge. Not the most luxurious but certainly interesting and very clean. Staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English. This hotel was originally a monastery so be prepared for high ceilings and large windows. We loved it and will be coming back.

This hotel is in a fantastic location just yards from the Charles Bridge. Our room was huge and beautifully decorated, more like a suite than a standard room. The staff were extremely helpful and could not do enough to help. A nice breakfast was included, and the bar/restaurant has a good selection of both Czech food and beer.

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.
