    Historical Traveler Reviews The Charles Hotel Prague

    Good hotel unless its hot outside

    from

    A good hotel in a great location. The hotel is a very short walk to the Charles Bridge and has a very close tram stop. Problems only seem to arise if the weather turns hot. No Air-conditioning forces one to open the windows to cool off. Because it is so close to everything, the Prague revelers will pass close by and will be quite vocal until the wee hours of the morning. If you are one to stay out until four in the morning then this will not be an issue.

    Ok hotel, but very old

    from

    The hotel did indeed have lots of character, but it is very old and needs attention. The handle of our door fell off twice and the couches in our junior suite were practically threadbare. This being said, the room was overall very nice and the staff was great. they brought tea up to the room several times when we asked. the breakfast was just ok . . . sometimes a bit stale tasting. Also, there is not enough room in the breakfast room and they seat you with strangers . . . not a big deal, but we were honeymooners and really wanted to sit alone!!! Also, when we checked out they charged us a higher rate then i had agreed to over the internet. but, i had no proof of the rate and they just charged us the going rate . . . not a big deal. The location is very good . . . close to the charles bridge, but on the opposite side of where most of the attractions are (and charles bridge is long!!!) There is a really nice pizza place across the street.

    Fantastic location, wonderful rooms

    from

    My husband and i stayed at the Charles for our honeymoon in October 2003 and had a wonderful time. The rooms (we stayed in two after a slight mishap with the bathroom tap!) were both spacious with painted beamed ceilings and the staff could not have been more accommodating suggesting places to eat etc.

    we will certainly return and have recommended the hotel to friends

    Loads of character

    from

    This hotel has more character than any other I've stayed in. The wooden floors and painted beamed ceilings are simply gorgeous. There was no tea and coffee making facility in the room, although there were drinks available downstairs. No bath, but the shower had loads of pressure. If you love a huge fluffy towel, then you'd best take your own. The bed was different, a foam layer over a padded base, but was very comfortable indeed. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect. Close to where you want to be, but nice and quiet.

    Wheres my special rate

    from

    Nice room, Excellent location, Ignore the nasty comments about the beds from the previous review. Ours had plenty of use and we loved it. The breakfast was good. The breakfast man was lovley. We did however get offered a special rate via this web site which was disputed and not honoured by the management. Left a dirty taste in our well fed mouths.

    Character & Location . . .and that's it

    from

    This hotel was in the perfect location - practically on Charles Bridge in the less touristy Malla Strana. Also loads of character - our room had hardwood floors and a high coved ceiling. But other than that I don't agree with the other reviewers. The mattress was literally 2 inches thick and seemed to be infested by some sort of bug. The shower was extremely small with only a curtain, which meant you either flooded the bathroom or had to take a shower with the curtain wrapped around you. Not the worst hotel ever but in my opinion not worthy of a 4 star rating or the high praise of the other reviewers.

    Great Choice in Prague!

    from

    It may not look like much from the outside, but I doubt you could find a better, reasonably priced hotel in Prague. Superb location right at the Charles Bridge, friendly staff, large, clean rooms, good breakfast.

    Recommend without hesitation and would definitely use again.

    Lovely room with beautiful painted beams on the ceiling!

    from

    This hotel is fantastic! The staff are very helpful and friendly, willing to go above and beyond to help with requests. My husband and I were upgraded to a lovely room on the third floor with beautiful painted beams on the ceiling. The rooms are clean and beautiful and the bathrooms are lovely and quaint. The water pressure in the shower was very strong even though we were on a top floor. The breakfast is a traditional continental and plentiful and is served in unusual underground vaulted rooms which are a nightclub at night. The location can't be beat, you are at the base of the hill that takes you to the castle and are a stones throw from the Charles Bridge and excellent shopping.

    Gem within a Gem of a city

    from

    My husband and I recently stayed at the Charles Hotel in Prague with two other couples. They provided accommodations per our request, were very friendly and are located conveniently next to the Charles Bridge.

    The rooms had a old-world feel and were well-appointed. Recommended place to stay by all of us. Really enjoyed staying on the quiet side of the bridge with easy access to other side.

    Perfect Location

    from

    The Charles Hotel is just steps from the famous Charles Bridge. The staff is very accommodating, the breakfast is fantastic - all of the standard selections e.g; various cold cuts, cereals, breads, pastries plus they will make you a hot breakfast of eggs and bacon/sausage upon request at no charge. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. I highly recommend this hotel as the perfect home base while visiting Prague.

    ... another room. It worked out just fine in the end, with some minor room switching. Once we were settled in, we found that we loved our hostel. It was an old building with original brick walls and high ceilings. The basement was a big pub that was packed with fellow travelers every night and had delicious/waaaaay cheap beer. Or kitchen was massive and looked like a giant pizza oven. We loved cooking there. Our rooms were interesting- triple decker ...

    Following my two hours soaking up the atmosphere at the cafe I wandered around and did some shopping, tried on about 100 things at Mango and Promod which both had sales on, but didn't find anything that was worth spending the money on, or carrying for the next three weeks.

    ... remember this is the beautiful art nouveau concert hall and multipurpose facility. I decided to take a tour (without the tour all you can see is the lobby), but I had to wait for the afternoon tour a 4pm. I decided to check out the Mucha Museum in the meantime.

    Alfonse Mucha (MOO-kah) was a painter and graphic designer in the turn-of-the-century bohemian style. He, along with Toulouse Lautrec, essentially created the ...

    ... left it in the hotel and wants to go straight back there. I'm sure he hasn't. We ring hotel and have to ring back in 5 minutes. When I do they said there was nothing left in the room. Well at least we don't have to make the train journey back. We go and sit in a travellers lounge, then he remembers that he might have dropped it where he got change for the lockers. Whew, it's there. All is well. Had been knowing that ...

    It was only appropriate that we used music of a Czech composer (check it out, Aunt Peggy!).

    It was fun to end the day collaborating with Gabriel to make this video.

    I hope you like it.
