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.

We left NZ as scheduled and we are now sitting on the Emirates B777-300 awaiting our flight to Prague. It's 8.45am here now on 16/8. The flights have been excellent on the A380 through to Dubai with the birthday menu for Barry being more than adequate. We are pleased to have the melb to dubai now behind us and currently we are now in flight to …
We have both slept well on our first night in Prague.
The hotel is European quaint - read small, but clean and has everything. We look down on some cafes and there is a food street market. We ate Al Brown style last night - we were tired and wanted one thing quick. So it was chicken kebab with a Czech Bbq potatoe dish - potatoe, sausage, …

Today Declan pointed out some horrific irony by showing us that Hugo Boss, the same company that designed the SS uniforms for the Nazis, has a store located right in the largest square in the Jewish quarter.
Right by the large square, Declan showed us the Old-New Synagogue. This synagogue got its ...
... imported in, so I figured I would grab one for lunch. I found the place, met a man who was very helpful in helping me pick from the hundreds of beers (literally), and finished my one, paid, and started to walk out the door when I noticed it was a torrential down pour outside. So I turned around, sat back down, and continued trying out beers until the storm stopped. I left the bar and decided to not plan anything (as i have found has worked in my favor so far) and ...
... carriage rides, and entertainment in the square. Human statues dressed and made up encourage you to have your picture taken with them. I prefer to be the person behind the camera, and remember an experience I had in Rome, where taking a picture with the Gladiators at Trevi Fountain resulted in a payment of monies. So much for charging as the photographer. LOL..I ...
