Domus Henrici – This hotel is intentionally nondescript out the front, hinting that peace and privacy are the top priorities here. Stylish rooms – half of which have a desk, internet point and fax/copier/scaner for work occupied visitors – spill out out onto terraces which have sigh-inducing views out over Prague.

Prague inn Last summer, my husband and I made an extended trip to Prague. During our first week, we stayed at Domus Henrici, an elegant, 14th-centrury inn. In 1997 it was restored and transformed into a contemporary bed and breakfast with all the amenities of a first-class hotel: A mini-bar, terry-cloth robes, king-size bed, TV, CD player and in-room phones. Fax machines are available. Our room was spacious, with white-washed walls and hardwood floors. The furniture throughout the inn is teak and contemporary in design. A generous breakfast is served each morning in the Library Room. Domus Henrici is located less than half a mile from the historic 13th-century Hradcany Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral. Although the inn is on the street leading to the castle, the six guest rooms are set on the back side of the building, overlooking fruit orchards and Petrin Hill. The only sounds we heard were birds and the bells from the nearby Loreto Shrine. The inn is managed by two charming young women, Martina Brumovska and Roberta Bocksteffelova, who speak English very well. During high season the rate for a double with breakfast is approximately $126 to $150 (depending on current rate for Czech Krons). During winter season, the rate is $78 to $99, and about $21 a night for an extra bed in the same room. Children up to 3 years of age stay free. Domus Henrici may be reached by phone: 011-420-2-2051-1369; by fax: 011-420-2-2051-1502; or by e-mail: Anita Chisholm

We flew from San Francisco to Prague and arrived close to midnight. Friends met us and settled us into a bed and breakfast. Totally fatigued, we fell asleep quickly. The next morning we awoke to find we were lodged in a beautiful 14th century inn that had been totally restored and remodeled into an elegant B&B.

Our room was spacious, with white walls and ceiling, and hardwood floors with scatter rugs. The furniture in our room, and throughout the inn, was contemporary in design and of dark teak. The inn had all the amenities of a first-class hotel: a mini bar, terry cloth robes, comfortable king-sized bed, phone, TV and CD player and a large, modern bathroom with plenty of hot water.

Domus Henrici at Loretanska 11, in Praha 1, is less than a half-mile from the historic, 13th century Prague Castle, the citadel of the Czech nation. Although it is on the main street to the castle, the six guests rooms are set on the back side of the building, away from any noise. Our room, number six, was on the second level with a view across a field and lovely orchard to Petrin Hill, a tree-covered mountain. Only the sounds of birds and the morning bells from a nearby Loreto Shrine, broke the quiet of the residence. During high season – March 28 to July 7 and Aug. 15 to Nov. 5 – the rate for double with breakfast at Domus Henrici is about $126 to $150. During winter season – Jan. 4 to March 27 – the rate is $78 to $99, and about $21 a night for an extra bed in the same room. Children up to 3 years of age are free.

Praag, page 45, Domus Henrici, Moderne Luxe In Historisch Praag

Wie van modern design houdt, zal zich in deze stijlvolle burgerwoning onmiddellijk thuis voelen. Alle kamers zijn wit geschilderd en het strakke houten meubilair werd door de eigenaars zelf ontworpen. De badkamervoorzieningen zijn naar Praagse normen ultra-modern en luxueus te noemen. Omdat dit hotel slechts zeven kamers en één suite telt, kunt u rekenen op een persoonlijke service. De zaakvoerster spreekt vloeiend Engles, een verademing in een stad waar het soms wel moeilijk communiceren is met de plaatselijke bevolking. Het terras biedt een panoramisch zicht op de stad, en in het bijzonder op de Petrin-tuinen, ook welęde heuvel van liefdeę genoemd omdat verliefde Pragenaren hier graag rondkuieren. Verder ligt op wandelafstand van het hotel de historische Praagse Burcht, een stad binnen de stad, die nog altijd symbolisch bewaakt wordt door soldaten in traditionele uniformen. Om klokslag twaalf uur, na het schallen van de trompet, paraderen ze over het plein. Een schouwspel om niet te missen! Verder zijn er in de buurt sfeervolle terrasjes en uitstekende restaurants, handig aangezien het hotel geen restaurant heeft. Het uitgebreide ontbijtbuffet wordt geserveerd in een gezellig salon. Dit hotel is niet alleen een aanrader voor toeristen, ook voor zakenlui die een alternatief zoeken voor de onpersoonlijkheid van grote hotels: internetaansluiting, schotelantenne, fax en copieermachine zijn voorzien.

Our favorite place to stay in Prague (and perhaps in all of Europe)is the Domus Henrici, a beautiful small hotel located about halfway between the Prague Castle and the Strahov Monastery in the Hradcany section. Their web site is

Domus Henrici seems more like a set of private flats rather than a hotel. It is not the cheapest, but it is very near your price limit. Fantastic view, only about 200m metres walk from the castle, practically opposite the Loreto Chapel, only a very short walk from the circular 22 tram route (admittedly those trams are a potential pickpockets' paradise, but just be careful), good breakfast, lovely rooms and good service. I was sceptical about paying a touch extra, but being in such a quite room so close to the castle made up for it, as did the chilled out atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. They've even got a deal with a taxi driver who doesn't rip you off!'.

People that are genuinely pleased to be helpful can make all the difference. We could not have been luckier with the staff at our hotel. From the moment we arrived and picked up at the airport to the return tripped they were there willing to help in any way that they could. We were a little curious to see who would be there to collect us. The blurb that we had been sent said that our driver could be contacted at any time in his cell. Was one of the munsters going to collect us? Had we scrolled down a little further after the page break we would have seen the word “phone” followed on, but why let facts like that stop the imagination running wild. The room itself was lovely, but best of all were the views. On one side a view over the old section of Prague; being on a hill we could see many of the sights and the river(that i somehow managed to miss with this shot). Straight ahead we had a view of one of the city parks, hillside trees and an old orchard. Despite being very close to the city centre we had a very peaceful location that could have almost have been in the countryside. Apart from the monastery and church bells that is. It soon came to my attention that the nuns were required to be ready for morning prays at 6am sharp. They marked this moment by running the church bells for 5 minutes at this unearthly hour. How Maria managed to sleep through this each morning is still a point of annoyance! And then on the final side we had a view of the monastery itself. For one short 15 mins when pray wasn’t required of the nuns, we also had the chance to watch nuns playing volleyball. I did take a short film of the wonderful view we had but in the style that I manage to do so well managed to rotate my camera 90 degrees. If anyone knows a programme that could rotate this back for me the way it should be I would be truly grateful. Oh and before anyone asks, no I don’t have the nuns on tape… If you are either looking for a place to stay in Prague, I can fully recommend the Domus Henrici.
