... in the area, and it was home to wealthy people. Now, Vinohrady is still an upscale district of Prague, but it is filled with apartment and condo buildings, shops, cafes, and restaurants. Our apartment on Manesova Street was right next to a nice little park with a subway stop in it, a large church at the other end, and a busy outdoor market. We could take the subway into the old town areas, or we could walk – Prague is a bit smaller than Budapest ...
... as the staff were organising an outing to the near by beer garden. Cait and I were the only Aussie lost in a crowd of Americans, but we had a great time, we then headed back to the hostel where we were supplied with a free dinner and then continued the night at the hostel bar. Which, to be honest is more of a basement, with a fridge and a counter top. There were flags of the world and we were sure to sign the Aussie one! Cait decided against going out and ...
... over the centuries and as late as the 1930"s. All the period and styles of the windows blended with the overall ambience. The highlight of the basilica was the St Wenceslas Chapel and Tomb. This Chapel is decorated in a very bold Baroque style with maroon and gold dominating this chamber. The alter, the centre piece of this room had a commanding presence. A short walk and we were in 'the Golden lane', a row of medieval houses no bigger than ten square metres with very ...
... of the highlights of the day was the half time entertainment which was provided by kids football. A half field match between kids around the age of 10 from Slavia and Jihlava.
With the team down 3-0 at half time the fans hadn't had much to cheer about so the roar when the junior team put one past the opposition goalie was huge!

Have a look at some of the photos below, looks a bit like the Cross Club from the night before only with a bit more boning. Backing up after a big night I then headed out to the city on a pub-crawl with Luke, Rory and 3 American guys from the hostel. Ended up being a pretty big night again with a 5:30AM train ride home this time. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Star (Zlata Hvezda) Prague
The Golden Star (Zlata Hvezda) is a brilliant place to stay. Just underneath the castle (access to the castle is just outside the front door) and if you ask for a room on the fourth floor, the views are fantastic. We would highly recommend any one to stay there. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. It is very clean, well kept, lovely comfy beds, gorgeous bathroom and very warm - as the temperatures outside were very, very cold (but Prague really is best in the snow!!!!) I booked our stay directly on line through a company called D&S Bohemia Ltd and a lady there called Katerina she was very helpful and also arranged our transfers to and from the hotel, the drivers were very nice, helpful and on time. When I read the reviews on the hotel some stated that it was up-hill - we didn't think the hill was very hilly actually, but as we live in Devon, maybe we are used to it. My only real disappointment in Prague was Wenceslas Square - too many UK shops (i.e. Debenhams, M&S, KFC, McDonalds, etc!!!!) looked more like any UK high street but everywhere else very magical - cant wait to return!
Well above average!
This is a great place to stay in Prague. The hotel was fabulous and our room was well above average. We chose the suite since we have a young child and it worked out very well for us. Two and one half baths was much more than we expected. The view was spectacular and the service was terrific. The price was very good and we would, without hesitation, stay here again. A thoroughly enjoyable stay is practically guaranteed!
Quaint Hotel in a great Location! Absolutely Stunning!
We decided to stay at this hotel after excellent reports from family members and oh how right they were. This hotel is lovely. Its very clean, very periodic and full of charm with lots of its old features still in tact (e.g. beams, wodden floors etc). Although its approximately 10-15mins walk to Charles Street Bridge, the views over the city are stunning and the walk is very pleasant along the cobblestoned Royal Way. There are lots of little cafes and restaurants close to the hotel so we never had to venture far away at night. The old town and New Town are lovely for shopping during the day but I would have been gutted if I'd been staying there. If you're looking for something "special" this is the place to stay. (Be sure to request a high floor to appreciate the views fully)
A Star of a Hotel, Golden Star Prague
Location, Location, Location steps from the Prague Castle on Nerduva St. This is not for everyone as you have a 5 - 10 minute walk from the end of the Tram line but peace and views make up for any inconvenience and a nice stroll after dinner. We were upgraded to a suite for no extra charge and it was heavenly. We had two nice rooms, classy furnishings, pleasant decor, 3 bathrooms and alll the soft, fluffy towels you could ever need.
Service was helpful, friendly and the rooms were immaculate. This truly is all it says it is and a very good value. We got a late deal pay 5 nights and stay 6. Internet access; good TV reception with English stations and a nice spread for breakfast.
Great Showers with enclosures so none of the floods common in so many European rooms.
Loved this hotel and location
We stayed at the Golden Star during Easter 2004. The location is fantastic, minutes from the castle. Our room was beautiful, we stayed on the top floor and had a beautiful view of Prague. The hotel is situated at the top of a steep hill, so walking back to the hotel is a bit of a struggle, but worth it, as the hotel is situated in the quieter part of the city, with nice restaurants and a few bars. A good restarurant to go to is called 'Cerny Orel', it's up a side street, near the bottom of the hill, very busy restaurant, which is a very good sign. The continental breakfast is nice and the staff are friendly. We would definitely go back to this hotel.

Smart and clean
Sited right next to the castle, it's about 15mins from charles bridge (downhill, but uphill on way back!) Stayed Sept 2003, very clean, was lucky to be on top floor facing city so got great view of sun rise.
Breakfast basic, cold buffet style. Staff speak english and smile a lot, also have a nice jack russell dog. There are a few very good places to eat nearby. Not the most centrally placed but nice all the same, but it's a canny uphill walk from the nearest tram stop so pack light unless your getting a taxi
Great Christmas in Prague
Last year we took my husband' parents to meet my family in Czech republic during the Christmas time. We stayed in Golden star the first night. The hotel was small, charming, elegant . Located right at the Prague castle. The rooms were spacious, as well as the bathrooms.
Parking right outside. Our parents had a suite, for no extra charge. We all very much enjoyed our stay. We'll stay there again. Make sure to book in advance.
Great Hotel, Wonderful Location
We stayed here in July 2002. The location is fantastic, in one of the quieter parts of the city, right by the castle, but only 15 mins walk from the Charles Bridge. The staff were helpful and welcoming, there was a good cold buffet for breakfast with an array of fruit, apple strudel, meats, cheeses etc. and the view over the city (we were lucky enough to be on the top floor) was breathtaking. Our room was simply furnished, but very clean with parquet floor and and a high standard of bathroom. Highly recommended.
