Dum u Velke Boty
(House at the Boot)

Dum u velke boty, or House at the Boot, is a delightful, family-owned bed and breakfast.

Exterior of Dum u velke boty

Located just a few minutes' walk from Prague Castle and Charles Bridge, Dum u velke boty is central yet quiet and romantic. It's surely one of the best and most charming accommodations in Prague.

Built before 1669, the house is situated on a small square just across from the impressive Lobkowitz Palace (the current German Embassy). The house has been restored taking careful measures to keep as much of its history intact.

The caretakers (and owners), share the building and treat each guest as their own family - welcoming everyone with care and humility.

The rooms combine subtle elements of the past with beautiful antiques and modern facilities.

Breakfast is served in a lovely dining room and the restored cellar is an ideal gathering place.

Reserving a room at Dum U Velke Boty

We used to offer visitors an option to book a room via our web site. But in recent years, the Boot was always full - never a room to even offer.

So, please book directly on their web site. Even TripAdvisor doesn't offer a booking option. But you can check reviews here.

One more piece of advice, book early! Hotels with such wonderful reputations certainly book up quickly. So plan months in advance - and it's best to keep your dates flexible.

Hidden deep in Malá Strana, this is a one-of-a-kind place. Peaceful, safe and still very central.

You could easily spend all of your time in the immediate surroundings. Because there are all kind of plesant surprises around.

Both Petřin park and Strahov Monastery are very close. We recommend making an effort to walk up the hill for all of the panoramic views.
