Fantastic. A real hidden and romantic retreat.

We treated ourselves to a trip to Prague for our Silver Wedding Anniversary, and to say we had a ball would be an understatement! This does rate as one of the best hotels we have stayed in.

We were met at the airport and taken to the hotel immediately, the welcome was warm and very friendly and although our room wasn't ready (it was only 10.30am) we were taken up to the restaurant where we were given coffee, cakes and an introduction to the city.

We went out for a walk soon after and stumbled across a music festival in Old Town Square. Although the hotel 'phoned us to let us know our room was ready, we were quite happy wandering around soaking up the atmosphere. Being January it was very cold, snow lay on the ground and day time temps hovered around -8' (thank goodness for the thermals), but this not detract from the beauty of this fair city, in a way it added to the romance.

Eventually, craving a bit of warmth, we ventured back across Charles Bridge to the hotel, just in time for the afternoon treats (sweet & savoury canapes, tea, coffee & wine [including sparkly]).

Our room faced the palace gardens but this still gave us a side view of the city beyond the river. The room was large, warm and very comfortable; the bathroom & jacuzzi bath a delight, the addition of free WiFi throughout the hotel was very welcome and useful.

Breakfast was good, with the added benefit of a truly fantastic view! We ate dinner in town and were pleasantly surprised by the choice and quality of the food.

We did treat ourselves to a private City Guide for 3-4 hours, she was excellent and got us into places that we wouldn't have dreamt of going to ourselves! We also took the funicular railway up to the Park at the top of Petrin Hil, and then climbed 299 steps to the top of the observation tower - the views from up here were just amazing.

We loved Prague and will definitely return, and when we do, we wouldn't stay anywhere else - The Golden Well gets our vote every time!

Fantastic. A real hidden and romantic retreat. Fantastic. A real hidden and romantic retreat.

Of all the European cities that I've enjoyed, I think that Prague was perhaps the nicest! A fabulous vacation.

Great review, Prague is such a beautiful city. I've never heard of this hotel before but it sounds like these hoteliers go above and beyond. The Golden Well definitely sounds like a "Unique Hotel" in that they do everything to make your stay enjoyable. If only all hotels where like that.

But Prague itself, wow, the city has so many medieval bridges, churches, and cobblestone squares that it does feel like it's from another time. Being an American, where very few public spaces are older than a few decades, the whole place seems steeped in history.

I went to Prague quite a few years ago and one random thing that struck me was the graffiti, it was so political. It was unlike any graffiti I've seen in Chicago. It was like having a political opinion was actually cool and anti-establishment instead of being ignored with instant cynicism.
All in all, I was very impressed with Prague. Now I have a great place to stay!
