    Perfect location and a beautiful little hotel. However, like all hotels in Old Town, the foot traffic and partygoers walking past, it’s not for light sleepers. Would highly recommend this hotel regardless! Nice clean rooms and great ambiance.

    One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
    the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
    bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
    square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
    in the background, is probably the most beautiful
    square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
    of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
