From the hotel?s upper floors or from an all-glass balcony lookout you can feast your eyes on a view of the Prague Castle, or also Petrin Park with its lookout tower and the typical red roofs of Lesser Quarter houses. An antic outside staircase will lead you into a small garden attached to the old walls of the Prague Castle, where you can relax in a pleasant, restful atmosphere. The small, cosy coffee shop Cafe Arcadia, offering a wide assortment of authentic Italian coffee and chocolate, is at your disposal on the hotel?s ground floor. Thanks to our small number of rooms, we can promise you a truly personal approach to each guest, and his needs and wishes. The first records of a building at this location go back all the way to the end of the 15th Century. In 1541, after a major fire destroyed almost three quarters of the Lesser Quarter in three hours, the building ?The Golden Wheel? underwent a through renovation. At the end of the 17th Century, the building was owned by the painter Kristian Dittman, who performed another major renovation and also added another floor. Roughly a hundred years later, in 1814, the building is already mentioned in the Land Registry as having four floors and from that time onwards has stayed practically unchanged. You can see this for yourself on Langweil?s unique model of Prague from the years 1826 ? 1835 at the Prague City Museum.
Directly below Prague Castle, this boutique hotel is a 10-minute walk away from the city centre.
