Time Out says

A tiny, six-room escape from the city’s crowds at a renovated cottage in the peaceful Hradčany neighborhood behind the Prague Castle.

“Charming” may be a cliché by now, but the intent behind its usage (think tilt-of-the-head-with-a-sigh-and-a-smile) sums up this cheerful, family-run establishment full of personal touches. These houses were rescued from obscurity in the late 1980s and revitalized from crumbling neglect into rustic relaxation, with a small gallery of the owner’s photography and his daughter’s sculpture on display. The cobblestoned courtyards maintain an intimate, romantic setting connecting the individual buildings. Perks include personalized recommendations for cultural events around the city, packages of trips to neighboring castles and lesser-known towns, and a short walk to the Prague Castle gates to be first in line when they open. Indulge in a buffet breakfast and sparkling wine before heading out the door. 

Time Out tip:  These limited rooms sell out fast, so make your booking as far in advance as possible.

Strahov Library: For photo-worthy design of decorative globes and painted ceilings
Kavárna Nový Svět: For a hidden coffee shop with courtyard views
St Martin: For contemporary Czech cuisine infused with international influences
