... you at least know what to expect.
After the nap, we took a walking tour of the Jewish district of Prague. It's one of the most glamorous parts of the city now with stores like Prada, Gucci, and Cartier, but it had obviously a very dark past with centuries of persecution of the Jewish people from the dark ages to the holocaust.

Charles Bridge is the focal point, as it leads tourists from the Astronomical Clock on one side to Prague Castle on the other. For panoramic vistas of the city you can't go past either the top of St Nicholas Church Tower or Petrin Tower. Initially I didn't think there was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel The Golden Wheel (U Zlateho Kola) Prague
Perfect Location - Great Staff
My wife and I have just spent a week in Prague at the Golden Wheel Hotel. This hotel is in a perfect location in the older part of Prague. It is surrounded by excellent restaurants offerring a great variety of food (try the Italian restraurant over the road from the Italian Emassy 50m down the hill).
The staff were fantastic and very friendly.
I have been to Prague 4 times in the last 3 years on business - I will certainly stay here again next visit!
My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at the Golden Wheel Hotel in Prague from 1st - 5th August 2005. The hotel was perfectly located for sightseeing and exploring, 5 minutes walk uphill to the castle and 10 minutes walk downhill towards Charles Bridge. Our room was large and of 4* quality. We found the staff to be excellent, polite and helpful. Breakfast was very good with a good variety of foods on offer. Internet access is available free to guests (not that we used it) We would certainly recommend this hotel to others and would stay again. It offers good value and service.
We're just back from 3 nights in the Golden Wheel.
We stayed at the Golden Wheel for 3 nights in May 2004. We had had trouble finding a place when we started to look about 6 to 8 weeks before and ended up at the Golden Wheel after much internet searching . It had only been open for a short time and we did not know what to expect. We were quite happy. The room was great with an interesting old ceiling, the location good with a lot of interesting restaurants near by but a little noisy and the help was very friendly, although somewhat inexperienced. Definitely liked beiing on the castle side of the river. Breakfast buffet was good also. Would recommend
An intimate stylish hotel with character
Have just stayed here over a snowy weekend. Hotel perfectly matched its website and reviews. We stayed in room 102 with beautiful old painted beams, which looked out onto Neruda Steet. Breakfast superb with a varied choice of hot and cold dishes to fill up on. Having extensively researched all other hotels on the web, we were so delighted with this one. There is a kettle in the room with tea, coffee and hot chocolate as well as a mini-bar. Also hooded towelling dressing gowns are provided. Bathroom very modern. Use web to find cheapest hotel prices, we found a varient of 80 euro per night.
Stayed in this lovely old but newly refurbished hotel over Christmas 2004. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations and contributed greatly to a memorable stay in Prague. All the hotel staff was pleasant and attentive. The breakfast was freshly laid out and of great quality. The location of the hotel couldn't be better for exploring all the major sites of interest. We stayed in the Junior Suite which was roomy immaculately kept and very clean.
We stayed in this hotel in December 2004 and just couldn't fault it. It's a lovely old building, beautifully decorated with its own rooftop garden and a viewing balcony that has wonderful views of the castle. Its location is perfect, five minutes' walk from the castle and about ten from Charles' Bridge and it made a a great base. The hotel is very new, so everything is pristine-clean. Rooms are big and spotless and, because it's so small, the staff give you personal attention and are extremely friendly. They go out of their way to be accommodating and friendly and couldn't be nicer. The breakfast is fantastic, with a cold buffet and a hot menu (ham and eggs, omelette, etc) cooked to order. Part of me wants to keep this wonderful hotel a secret! But such a lovely place deserves to be recognised. i can't recommend it highly enough!
Peaceful and perfect
This is a lovely, tranquil, friendly hotel. We stayed in an attic room which was very calm and peaceful. We stayed in early 2004 when the hotel had not been open for long, and everything felt very fresh and new. The bedlinen is crisp and white and the bathroom was done out in clean black and white. Although it was more expensive than many of the other nearby hotels, I felt it was still good value.
The location, tucked under the castle and close to Charles Bridge, was perfect, and it was lovely to walk over the bridge in the evening, leaving the hustle and bustle of the new town behind, and retire to the haven of the Golden Wheel.
Breakfast is also very good. I'd recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
we are currently at the golden wheel and loving it. the hotel is very nice. the staff is super friendly and accomodating. the location cannot be beat. 3 minutes walk to prague castle and the lorreto area. old town is okay, full of tourist traps. the hotel is in the the area known as the "golden mile" 10 minute walk to the charles bridge and 15 minutes to the old town. the area is filled with antique shops, restaraunts (good and reasonable), boutiques, art galleries and wine shops. the hotel is great. the rooms are large with spa like bathes. more than you could hope for !! the hotel has a rooftop garden perfect for a bottle of wine purchased at one of the local shops (8.00 us) and the view is incredible. a wonderful breakfast is served each day, coffees, teas, pastires, jucies, meats and cheeses. the hotel offers free unlimited internet service from a central location that has a good area for reading or plotting your days course. the hotel was more than i expected.
