Beautiful hotel steps away from the Charles bridge. Service is very friendly and the rooms are spacious, high ceiling, and tasteful and functionally decorated.

"Decent place but know what neighborhood you're in!"
Great staff. Ladies working the front were exceptional! Like exercise? then take one of the 4th floor rooms. Oh my goodness, what a climb! It certainly is a great warm up for going up the steps to the Castle...haha, that's a wake up call. Be sure to go on up to the monastery for the beer. Excellent. The restaurant was fine. The location is REALLY close to the St Charles bridge so be prepared for swarms of tourists and noise. Not so much in the room but anytime you leave the hotel. Very touristy area. I prefer to go visit this type area rather than live in it so beware. I wouldn't stay here again because of the area but the hotel and staff were great. I'd even go say hello if in the area again.

"Amazing place in best location in Prague"
Best priced Boutique hotel in Europe. Located by the Charles Bridge in the Little Quarter neighborhood of Prague. Close to everything. Beautifully appointed rooms and spacious, we stayed in room #5 with incredible views of the Charles bridge. Amazingly friendly and super helpful staff. Breakfast included. I will definitely come back to this hotel.

"Beautiful Room"
Amazing room. Ask for #5. Wood ceiling, lots of windows, spacious. My only complaint is the the bathroom could be a touch cleaner. Obviously it had been cleaned but there were some spots of mildew in bathroom. Not bad but considering how fantastic the staff is, oh fantastic the location is and how fantastic the room is, it seems like that should be just as fantastic. I will definitely stay there again. Everyone there was wonderful.

"Amazing!"
The best part of this hotel was the room. We stayed on the top floor and it felt more like an apartment then a room. Plus the bathroom was huge. The location is also amazing just steps from the Charles Bridge. The only issue is there is no elevator so it wouldn't be ideal for someone with heavy bags. Otherwise I highly recommend.

"Emilia"
ich war mit meinem Ehemann und meinem 5-jährigen Sohn in der Silvesternacht 2014/2015 in diesem Hotel und kann nur gutes darüber berichten. Das Hotelteam ist sehr nett und hilfreich, das Zimmer war sauber und gut ausgestattet. Das Frühstück am nächsten morgen war üppig und lecker. Kann dieses Hotel wirklich empfehlen, natürlich sollte man bedenken, dass ohne Aufzug der Weg auf die zweite Etage für ältere Menschen anstrengend sein kann, zumal das ein Altes Gebäude ist mit einer schmalen Treppe, aber damit muss man halt leben, wenn man zu diesem Preis am Abend aus dem Fenster direkt auf die Karlsbrücke schauen will.

Alojamiento con encanto, en un barrio inmejorable dentro de una ciudad magica. Hotel para pasar desapercibido y salir a caminar por Praga sin necesidad de emplear si no se desea el transporte publico; muy cerca de todo lo necesario, se encuentra a escasos 50metros del puente de Carlos, en el barrio de Mala Strana y emplazado en un barrio donde al caer la noche el clima de tranquilidad impera en cada esquina.MUY RECOMENDABLE

"Tolle Lage, wenn Lärm nicht stört"
Das Hotel liegt direkt neben der Karlsbrücke. Die Lage ist unschlagbar, allerdings ist es zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit sehr laut aufgrund der vielen Touristen auf der Karlsbrücke und den anliegenden Kneipen. Schlecht war das Badezimmer des Zimmers. Hier konnte man unmöglich duschen, da hierfür die Dachschrägen keine Möglichkeit ließ und das Hotel keine Duschvorrichtung in der Badewanne angebracht hat. Personal war nicht sehr hilfreich.

"wunderschönes Hotel direkt an der Karlsbrücke"
Ich war total begeistert von meinem kurzen Aufenthalt im Domus. Das Personal ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit, alles ist sauber und sehr gemütlich. Wenn man nicht gut zu Fuß ist, ist das Hotel nichts für einen, da es keinen Aufzug gibt und in die oberen Etagen 4 Stockwerke laufen muss, auch wenn man groß ist sollte man die oberen beiden Zimmer meiden, da man dort nicht gut duschen kann, wegen der Dachschräge. Ich bin klein und fit deswegen für mich alles super!

"wunderbares Kleinod direkt an der Karlsbrücke"
Das Hotel liegt an der Kleinstadt-Seite der Karlsbrücke in einem Altbau. Einen Fahrstuhl gibt es nicht, da muss man schon über eine Holztreppe sein Zimmer erklimmen. Jede Etage hat nur zwei Zimmer. Es ist also wirklich ein kleines Hotel. Die Dusche erfordert für Menschen über 1,80 eine gebeugte Haltung, wenn man eines der beiden Dachzimmer erwischt. Aber das sind auch schon die Einschränkungen... Ansonsten sehr heimelige Atmosphäre, freundliches Personal, geschickt eingerichtete Zimmer mit ausreichend Raum auch für ein paar Stunden Regenflucht. Zusammengefasst: Begeisterung, jederzeit wieder.

"Quarto bem espaçoso, confortável e bem localizado."
Quarto muito espaçoso e confortável e banheiro e quarto bem limpos. A localização é excelente em Mala Strana, bem próximo da Ponte Charles e do ponto de bonde. O atendimento deixa a desejar, o hotel não possui e elevador e ninguém para ajudar a carregar as malas. Além disso, na recepção ofereceram durante o checkin para fazer reservas em restaurantes ou comprar algum ingresso para peça ou concerto. Pedimos a compra de um ingresso na recepção do turno da noite. Na manhã seguinte fomos perguntar se haviam conseguido mas pareciam ter esquecido de comunicar a funcionária deste turno, que não se interessou em ajudar e acabou que não conseguimos comprar os ingressos. O café da manhã também precisava ser reavaliado. O café aparentemente não é do Hotel, mas sim na cafeteria que existe ao lado. O atendimento também deixa a desejar, assim como alguns dos produtos servidos.

"Perfektes Hotel für Citytrip mit Charme"
Das Domus Balthasar ist ein echtes Juwel und eigentlich sollte ich es nicht bewerten, damit es schön verborgen bleibt und immer ein Zimmer für mich frei ist - so würde es ein "Hidden Place" bleiben, wie es benannt ist. Und das völlig zu recht! Obwohl das Hotel mitten im Trubel ist, nur wenige Schritte von der Karlsbrücke entfernt auf der wunderschönen Kleinseite ist und so auch nahe der Burg, betritt man das Hotel und fühlt sich wie in einer ruhigen Oase. Die Rezeption ist immer äußerst freundlich, zuvorkommend und kompetent besetzt. Dies kann man schon vorab des Besuchs bemerken: ich bekam Empfehlungen für Restaurants, in denen auch ein Tisch reserviert wurde. Das Hotel hat nur 8 Zimmer, die modern ausgestattet und eingerichtet sind und mit Holzbalken (nicht alle) vor Charme sprühen. Das Frühstück wird im Café nebenan serviert, kalte Speisen sind auf einem kleinen Buffet (völlig ausreichend), Kaffee und warme Speisen (Eier, pancakes) werden serviert. Für ein traumhaftes Wochenende in Prag kann ich das Hotel nur uneingeschränkt empfehlen!

Spitzenlage: nur 50m von der Karlsbrücke entfernt. Dafür unglaublich ruhig: tritt man durch die Eingangstür ist Stille. Denkmalgeschütztes Haus, daher kein Aufzug - was aber den Flair steigert. Dachbalken im 4. Stock sind ab 1,80m mit Vorsicht zu genießen :-) Personal sehr hilfsbereit, gute Englischkenntnisse.

"Best location ever"
07/25/15 desangevins Montreal, Canada
Stayed at Domus Balthasar for 4 nights. Best location on Mala Strana side. Easy access to Prague Castle, Strahov, Petrin tower, etc. The room was very big for European standard with large bathroom with shower separated from bath. Be aware that the hotel doesn't have elevator (we were on 3rd floor) and no a.c. except for the room in the attick. Can be very hot in summer. Wi-fi is very slow, you have to be patient. The breakfast at the attached bagel shop were quiet enough with small buffet and a la carte choices. Overall a perfectly located hotel with great price for what you get. I would recommend in an heartbeat.

"An exceptional hotel - very friendly staff comfortable, spotlessly clean room, fabulous location."
07/10/15 Vic C Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This has to be the "go to" place for anyone planning a stay in Prague city. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the room we had was simply outstanding. The facilities are excellent - WiFi, in-room safe, very comfortable beds, and everything is spotlessly clean. Breakfast is available in the adjoining cafe - Bohemian Bagel - and it is great value. The hotel's location is a major strongpoint - 25 metres from the famous Charles Bridge and right in the heart of a bustling area of town with great restaurants and shops. There can be some street- noise at night but it's not at all intrusive. I have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful establishment.

Stayed here for my boyfriends birthday in March. Was perfect location! Very central to everything. Right on the St Charles bridge. Although hidden away would never know it was there! Lovely little hotel, with a romantic medieval getaway feel to it. We stayed in the attic room which was beautiful. Although no elevator so be prepared for the stair climb! It had low ceilings with beams, and my boyfriend is very tall. We was offered another room but we didn't mind at all. The staff were friendly and very accommodating.

Wow! Where to begin? Stayed at Domus Balthasar Design Hotel for 4 nights in the end of June 2015. I booked the room via their own website and immediately got a quick and friendly response - and a good rate. The moment I arrived to hotel I knew I was gonna love it. It was just a few steps - literally - from the Charles Bridge in Mala Strana. My cute attic room was located at the top 4th floor of that beautiful, historic building, 73 steps to climb there (no elevator, but it was not a problem for me, though they had to help me with my heavy luggage); room size was good, 24sqm and it was fitted with a comfortable king size bed with many pillows. I had three small windows and peeking out I could see the towers and roofs of beautiful Prague. I'm an enthusiastic photographer, so it was just amazing to shoot some pictures straight from the window. In the room there were a couple of little things which were so kindly thought of; apples in a bowl, and it was the only hotel of the three where I stayed during my trip which had Kleenex in the bathroom. Small things matters! There was a 26inch flat screen LCD TV with a connection to PC and camera, hi-fi mini system with CD and DVD player and radio. Also A/C, wifi (sometimes spotty) and minibar. Bathroom was equipped with bathtub, heated floor, WC; hairdryer (a good one) and bathrobe. There was quiet and spottlessly clean. Even I did not leave my towels on the floor, they were changed daily. The room had some much character (beamed ceilings), that I will definitely stay there during my next trip to beautiful Prague. The personnel was awesome! I would like to mention especially super friendly young lady Zuzana at the reception, she has a great attitude and she's absolutely a perfect person for custom service. The breakfast is served in the next door at Bohemia Bagel, another gem! Breakfast was delicious with cereal, eggs, coffee, tee, juice fruit, ham, cheese... you could order pancakes and and some other food for no charge - I highly recommend blueberry pancake with syrup. Yummy! But the best was the service! They serve you always with a smile! What a great place! Thank you Mona, Zuzana, Barbora... making my stay so very special! Wishing you all a great summer!

Booked 2 nights at this hotel on recommendation of our last Prague hotel which happened to be fully book. Was pleasantly surprised with its perfect location, just a few meters from Charles Bridge and walking distance to s lot of good restaurants. Prague Castle was easily accessible by tram and also by walking. We occupied the suite room on the 2nd floor. The room was huge with an anteroom, a shower and a bathtub. There were utensils, a stove and a microwave oven plus a cookbook of Czech cuisine if you decide to cook your own food. But the real gem of this hotel are its staff. From the time I inquired via email to the time we checked out, the staff had been very helpful. They even called me in Manila to get my credit card details! Special mention to Zuzana who was most accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

06/30/15 pyketsi Jyvaskyla
OK, stayed there for 3 nights. The rooms are very spacious and I loved the beds; very comfortable to sleep. What I really wonder is that for example booking.com site and many others claim that this hotel has air conditioner (see General section) but the truth is that there IS NO air conditioner except in 2 out of 8 rooms if I understood correctly. This is because of restrictions of modification of the old building or sth... http://www.booking.com/hotel/cz/domus-balthasar-design.en-gb.html Well we were lucky and were able to sleep as it was no so hot it could have been in worst scenario. The breakfast was "ok" but I would not call it excellent as many have said. Of course it depends for what you compare that. I compare that corresponding hotels in Finland and I can tell you that in Finland buffer breakfast means that there are several meters of plates to choose from. The staff was very helpful and spoke good english. The reception lobby is more than small, and there is no separate luggage room so you have to leave your luggage in front of the reception desk if you want to go for a walk before flights after checking out of hotel. The price is a bit overpriced but the location is near to perfect, I would say. So to summarize, not bad choice at all!

06/30/15 KushanMitra New Delhi
After a long train ride from Berlin, we finally made our way to the hotel from the train station by subway and tram, although a taxi would be easier if you have a lot of luggage. We were welcomed by Zuzana who showed us to our room - a suite on the first floor - we would advise that you take a larger room if you have a lot of luggage, the attic rooms involve three flights of stairs. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and the bed. We did not expect such a large room and bathroom after getting used to cubbyholes throughout Europe. Zuzana was a great help explaining our location and where all we should go. The breakfast at Bohemia Bagels was always nice and we particularly enjoyed the pancakes. The best part about the hotel is its stunning location right next to the Charles Bridge.
