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...

I had picked the Charles for its location and positive write up. However, I was a little concerned when I read an earlier review saying that a party had experienced booking problems and were moved to another hotel. We arrived late Thursday after a flight delay to be told there had been an error in the bookings and that we...

This hotel took our breath away! Our room was HUGE with ancient hand painted ceilings. We got a suite, but only booked a double. We had a huge ensuite bathroom with beautiful black and white tiles and excellent quality old style fittings. We had a room leading off from our room through double doors with settees and a table in....

Wonderful location, but average quality after that. The breakfast was average. Had to put towels on the floor in bathroom because of the half shower door: water got everywhere. We had a bad infestation of ants. You pay a lot and you get a little. The hotel is old and they only updated the bathrooms. Poor picture quality on the...

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.
