My family stayed in two rooms (Family Suite, and a single room) for three days in August. It's a beautiful old house and the rooms are a good size and filled with comfortable furniture as well as dressers and wardrobes. Air conditioning is available on request which was very helpful for us since the weather was very hot while we were in Prague. The staff is always friendly and helpful and quickly takes care of requests like getting a car to the airport. The location is halfway up to Prague Castle, the Strahov monastery, and the top of Petrin Hill. There's a small grocery and a number of restaurants on the same street as the B and B and many more in the neighborhood. The breakfast is pretty good--some additional cheese and fruit choices would make it excellent.

Property's Favourite Review
We stayed at the House of the Big Boot for two nights in December just after Christmas. What a wonderful experience from check in to check out. A lovely lady named Doubrovka(sorry spelling is not correct) checked us in. She was so helpful in giving us information and a map of the location, and the surrounding, and tourist areas. We were offered refreshments while the formalities of checking in was done. We were also made aware of the honesty fridge with beers, wine and other drinks at our disposal. Very convenient. Tea and coffee are complimentary Our rooms were lovely and comfortable. Bathrooms clean and pleasant. Breakfasts were delicious and the host Jan actually made them for the guests and was so hospitable. He was also very kind to my two children aged 4 and 6. Who can be quite a handful. What’s on offer : Coffee, tea, hot chocolate,juice, toast, cereals , amazing yoghurt, cheese and ham and eggs made to order. Coffee refills generously offered. I thoroughly enjoyed breakfast time both days. The Location of this bed and breakfast is also super. Being so close to Prague Castle and other tourist spots as well as lovely restaurants. It is also central with access to various tram and bus lines. Will definitely return to The House of the Big Boot if visiting Prague again. Can’t recommend this place enough. Lovely place, lovely location and the loveliest hosts.

House at the Big Boot is a special place. The location is perfect - away from the hustle and bustle but so close to so many things. The staff here is terrific. The breakfast i wonderful and a great way to start the day. It's just 10 minutes walk from The Prague Castle and the museums that are in that area. It's just a 10 minute walk from the Charles Bridge which takes you to the Old Town. House of the Big Boot is very well maintained and the staff was very, very friendly for this first time visitor to Prague. I will tell my friends that this is the place to stay in Prague and hope I get a chance to visit again.

I accompanied my (adult) daughter to the Czech Republic for medical treatment. She planned the whole trip; the stay at the House was a father's day present - what a surprise. The location is great. As the host said, "This is where the nobility wanted to live so they were close to the royalty." The house is across the street from the German Embassy, down the street from the American Embassy, and VERY close to the palace, cathedral and Charles Bridge - all within easy walking distance. We stayed in the attic room which has a terrace that looks out on the palace. The room was beautiful, as was the house itself. The room had a large (for a hotel) refrigerator, counter, cooktop and coffee maker. The shower is good sized. Everything was spotless. Our host insisted on carrying our luggage up the stairs to the room. He and his son spoke excellent English and made recommendations on what to see and visit, as well as picking us up from the train station and dropping us at the airport. The stay was fantastic. I highly recommend it. This was my first stay at a B&B - I am more of a hotel guy. But having stayed here I have to say my daughter's choice was exactly right. The chance to interact with the "locals" and talk about the history of the city and the country added a richness to the trip that I would have missed otherwise. Czech Republic: I have always wanted to go to Europe but for some reason the Czech Republic was never on my radar. What a mistake on my part. CZ is a beautiful country. The prices are low. The transportation system outstanding. The people are friendly and helpful. Someone at every hotel and restaurant spoke English. Brno is beautiful and Prague is stunningly beautiful. And CZ has done an outstanding job containing the corona virus. I had the time of my life and the stay at the House at the Big Boot was the capstone on a wonderful trip.

If you wish to experience what Prague could have looked like in the 19th century you will love this cosy family-owned and run b&b. We were incredibly lucky to be there during a tourist-free month and to get one of the best room with a gorgeous terrace with a view on the castle. But any time of the year you will love the hosts’ lovely hospitality and their delicious breakfast (even with yummy gluten-free bread on demand) and the very quiet neighborhood close both to the castle and the Charles bridge. What more can you wish for? They even had a lockable shed for our bikes. We’ll definitely return!
