6/10 Good

Very old authentic hotel with stained glass windows depicting historic portraits of Czech people which was different and I liked that. Beautiful balustrades on staircase and artistic ceilings which added beauty and character to the place. Our 3rd floor superior room was spacious with more than enough cupboard space and contained very old solid wooden furniture in keeping with the character of the hotels age and style. Due to small stained glass window, the room lacked natural daylight but there was adequate electric lighting. The bathroom was spacious and adequately equipped. The breakfast dining room is small but the staff in there were efficient and pleasant. If you are wheat intollerant like me, then the eggs and greek yoghurt are nice plus there was corn and rice crackers with packets of varied spreads. There is a coffee machine and teabag selection plus juice. Several cereals and excellent choice of dried fruit and seeds. The hotel is up a steep hill past the castle so you need strong legs and good lungs. There is one slow lift in hotel and it is only big enough for 2 average sized people with cabin cases. Overall its ok for a few days.

A great little hotel, away from the crowds
A lovely hotel, tucked away, under the castle walls and lovely and peaceful, at night, once the cathedral and castle visitors have left. It is a little out of the way, and up a steep hill, but that all adds to the charm. A lovely stay in a beautiful hotel. Highly recommend for those who are happy to be away from the thronging tourists.

Very happy!
Friendly staff, fun decor, good breakfast included, pretty good location (it's an easy walk from the castle—I think you could argue that there are more sights on the other side of the river in the old town, but the castle is probably the biggest single attraction). Downside of the location is that you had to walk down the hill a bit to catch an Uber (apparently you're too close to the Castle) but generally it wasn't a big deal, and most would still drop you off in front of it. I had the fruit plate delivered to my room, and it was huge and generally very good (I thought the pineapple was exceptionl). Very happy with my choice and would likely stay there again if I returned to Prague
