“Rustic family-run hotel in the leafiest and most peaceful part of central Prague. Village atmosphere with cobbled streets, typical restaurants, and little pubs. Inside, simple wooden furniture, crisp white sheets, timber beams, log fires and a small art gallery. Ideal for cosy winter weekends away.”

Hotel Overview

“The hinterland of Hradčany (the castle district) is the leafiest and most peaceful part of Prague. The atmosphere here is more that of a quiet country village than heaving city. Set amongst narrow cobbled streets, U Raka (‘The Crayfish’) is Prague’s only wooden building still standing, now a hotel with a distinctive, rustic charm. It is owned by the Pauls, a family of artists whose works can be seen in the hotel’s small gallery, and run with benevolent efficiency by father and daughter, Alexander and Agneta. The decoration is spot on: wrought-iron beds, simple wood furniture and crisp white linen complementing the timber beams and exposed brickwork. The best room has its own well, conservatory and log fire. Breakfast (a slap-up start to the day) is served in a tiny cosy candlelit room. Snacks outside in summer. ”
