This charming hotel has beautiful rooms. The most impressive thing about this is the location. Walk right out the door and you can see the famous Charles Bridge, so basically smack in the middle of everything. I loved the Thai Restaurant below its a must try!

I´ve reserved using Agoda´s reviews. I don´t regret anything! Location is perfect in the best place in prague to stay. Although is very close to everything, the hotel is very quiet and reserved. The rooms are renewed recently, being very pleasant. They are large (specialy for European standards)and confortable. Strongly recommended!!!

Location ! 1. Over booking the rooms - we arrived late in the evening and were dispatched off to a "sister" hotel for first night. I was travelling with a very elderly gentleman (with a stick) and so this was a great inconvenience, the return transfer following morning took valuable time from our short break. 2.

We arrived at the hotel by taxi from the train station - were charged 27 Euros. Had we studied the Charles Hotel's recommendation for taxis, we would have known that it should not have been more than Euros 15.00.

I've stayed at the Charles 6 times over the past 8 years and it has been consistently great. The location is better than any hotel in Prague, just steps from the Charles Bridge, steps from the tramlines. Big, renovated rooms with nice baths. Staff speaks English as well as other languages.

The Charles is in an ideal location, about 1 or 2 minutes to the Charles Bridge. One can walk to Prague Castle or the Old Town from the hotel. This is a small, reasonably priced, boutique hotel.

Our stay at the Charles Hotel was a pleasant experience. The room was very large, on the top floor (4th), with a window that opened out overlooking the busy walking-only "road" entering the Charles Bridge. Although it can be very busy and noisy you can always close the window for quiet times. Our room was clean, had adequate air conditioning,... More

Great location and very professional and accomodating staff. Umbrellas provided on a rainy day. You can walk to almost everything to see in Prague and there are inexpensive and good restaurants nearby. Highly recommend staying at the Charles.

The Charles Hotel was the perfect hotel from which to visit Prague. It's only a short walk to either the Prague Castle or the Charles Bridge. There are plenty of Restaurants and the Trams/Subway not too far either. The rooms and service were some of the best we encountered in Europe. They spoke plenty of English and were friendly enough...

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
