Historical Traveler Reviews Archibald At The Charles Bridge Prague
We have been meaning to write this review for ages and have only just got round to it!
We went for 3 days in March 2005 and had a brilliant time. The hotel is fantastic - quiet position but close to everything. The staff are very helpful and on hand to answer all questions.
We had a two room suite which looked straight out at the Charles Bridge - I doubt there is a better view in Prague!
Looking at other reviews below, the bathroom was small but totally functional and would rather have a small bathroom to keep that view!
The breakfast was nice, but you need to be down in the first half of the sitting otherwise the food can run out.
We had lunch and lots of beer in Pub I. Really good food and beer and very well priced. Try the devilled meats!
Really cannot stress enough how great this hotel is - and coming from me that is praise indeed as I usually swap rooms 2 or 3 times before I am happy in a hotel!
Briliant little place
I stayed here with friends to celebrate a birthday. There was 12 of in total and we all had great rooms. My rooms was facing the river and across to to old town. Breakfast was what you expect on the continent but there was a fantastic cafe about two minutes walk from the hotel. Serves hot chocolate in Pints!!!!
Great hotel, great location and you would need to be very picky not to enjoy your stay.
An Oasis of calm only steps away from the Charles Bridge
We spent 5 mights at U Karlova Mostu, and were pleasantly surprised, after an initial bad impression. Our first room, a 2 room suite actually, had a view of the river. BUT, it had little storage space and a bathroom so tiny, one could hardly turn around and there was no space to store even a toothbrush. The second day we were able to move across the hall to another 2 room suite which had a bigger bathroom and was better laid out. We were very happy with hotel. The decor was just ok, as was the included breakfast. But the location and the pleasant staff really made the trip for us. Kampe Island is literally under the Charles Bridge, yet is so calm and quiet that it was like being in the countryside. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We will go back to Prague and will most likely stay here again.
Fantastic location, lovely rooms
Superb location almost literally underneath the Charles Bridge! Located on a really quaint and quiet island - named "Kampe".
This was a very friendly, clean, recently refurbished hotel - due to the flooding.
The room felt like a flat with a separate hall-way leading to the bathroom/main bedroom.
Nice furniture, although two substantial wooden single beds were pushed together to form a double - apparently this is the norm.
The only downside was the room was a little cold even with the radiators on but this didn't cause too much of a problem to us.
We had breakfast each day which was nice and we ate evening meal here on two ocassions, once in "Pub I" and the other time in "Pub II" which are located on the ground floor/basement. Czech food is very hearty which is what you want when it's -10 and snowing outside like it was when we were there!
Took the Prague Airport Shuttle from the airport and a standard taxi back without problem.
Would stay here again without question.
Best Location and Hotel in Prague
On my two visits to Prague I have stayed at this hotel and can only say that it is a lovely hotel in a perfect location. The restaurant is also brilliant serving excellent food at a very reasonable price. Staff are friendly and helpful too
Adored Prague - the place and the people
We stayed in U Karlova mostu (hotel at the Charles Bridge). We had a lovely view of the Charles Bridge and the river. It was excellent, 15 seconds from the Charles Bridge. Close to Prague Castle, Old Town Square, many other tourist sites and shopping.
Prague is a bueatiful city and my wife and I will definately go back. We found the locals to be helpful and friendly. We also did some of the walking / boat tours and would highly recommend them. Some of the boats leave from the rear of the hotel. In all a cracking trip.
Fabulous Prague, what more can I say???
We love Prague, it was love at first sight, this hotel was our 4th visit to wonderful Prague. So what did we think of it? We had a beautiful room wih a fabulous view of the stunning Charles Bridge, traditionally in Prague our double was two singles pushed together, but not really an issue for us. Our only criticisms of the room was that our en-suite was tiny, shower only no bath, and we only had one mirror in only in the bath room (sounds picky but I'm looking for a hotel for my wedding guests to stay at!). BUT don't forget what a view, the staff were friendly and helpful and its so convenient for almost everywhere in Prague.
Breakfast was traditional continental, not the best I've had but not the worst.
In summary I loved it here, and would return but not sure its suitable for my wedding guests! Especially cos there's no lift! Some of the steps could prove tricky on return from a traditional Prague night out!
Great experience, Great location
This hotel is in the perfect spot. Close to the bridge on the river, on a very nice street. There is a big park next door where people walk their dogs. Close to everything, but not noisey. Perfect!
Stayed here in November of 2003 for 4 nights. Considered the off-season, but we loved it.
We had a suite right above the lobby area facing the street.
A room/ suite facing the river would definitely be nicer, but we really liked our room. the street is very quiet and cute. The suite had 2 rooms and a very clean and new bathroom.
Breakfast was slim, but we enjoyed it every day and the pub/ restaurant was great. The staff were very nice and went out of their way to help us.
The only negative thing about our stay was the bed. It was 2 twins pushed together. One mattress would be better. They were comfortable, but still...
Prague is absolutely awesome! and our stay at the hotel helped make it a great experience. I would return.
A wonderful hotel. The location is just great, you cannot be closer to the Charles Bridge (on Kampa island, off the bridge), and yet, this is a very quiet location (although we were there in July). Many people just go on over the bridge and never come down to the island. The room was very charming, with a nice view on the Kampa square and on the bridge.
First class in every way
We've just returned from 5 fabulous days at the U Karlova Mostu. The hotel exceeded all my expectations. It is in the best location you could pick for visiting all the different areas, situated in a quiet tree lined cobbled square. All the districts are within walking distance but there is a metro station 5-10 minutes away. The staff are really friendly and always greet you with a smile. The rooms were spotless and looked as if they'd just been decorated. Complete with mini bar, safe, satellite TV and sofa. We stayed in a huge room with two windows overlooking the river and the Charles Bridge - absolutely breathtaking. We frequented Pub I on a number of occassions. The beer and food are excellent at very reasonable prices. One night we had heavy snowfall and temperatures were below zero, the fire in the Pub was so welcoming. The only disadvantage to the Pub is you have to go out of the hotel to the entrance On a freezing cold snowy night it would have been nicer to have access straight into the hotel but hey, if it hadn't been snowing I wouldn't have thought twice about it. Would definately recommend the hotel and would love to go back in the summer.

... the Lesser area where there are embassies, palaces and sights to see. We wandered around in the rain for a while, took the funicular railway up Petrin Hill and visited Stefanik's Observatory founded in 1928 and named after Slovak astronomer Milan Stefanik which made Laurie's morning. ************e there and the scientists on duty seemed thrilled that someone knew a bit about astronomy and was genuinely interested in what they had to ...

... Prague to Vienna, so finally have some time to type in the details of the last couple of days. Sister Losch gave us the contact information of a couple living in Vienna (going to an English speaking congregation). We plan to check into the hotel late this afternoon, then meet them at the bar at the hotel. I’m sure they will have nice suggestions of what to see in Vienna.
Until the next time I get some quiet time to write some more ...
... we found an extremely tasty Mexicano restaurant and indulged a little (Mexican in Prague, of course). We went on a tour of the underground city which were houses in Prague in the 11th and 12th century until people eventually built on top if them and they were forgotten. Once found they were either restored or made into underground restaurants and pubs/clubs. After we made our way to a tower to a lookout where ...
... a Czech masterpiece called Fenix. It is served in a crooked glass that has to be inspired by the "dancing house" that rests in New Town near the river. The Fenix rises from the ashes with an orange slice on its back and a bounce of vanilla. My mother who isn't a beer drinker would even love this beer. I haven't a clue whether this restaurant serves the best Czech cuisine, but the Fenix is a rival for the title of "World's Best Wheat ...
