        • Couple
          6.2

          The location and atmosphere was just what I was hoping for. It was near the historic sites that I was looking forward to seeing.

          We were moved to another hotel in another part of town that was further from the historic sites. It was disappointing and inconvient to not to able to stay in the hotel as planned. The staff didn't seem very sorry about it and tried to tell us the new area was better. We did not agree.

        • Couple
          9.2

          The Charles is a relatively small for a hotel, which enables it to have large spacious rooms (in our case we had a lounge area and a bedroom) and attentive staff. The bathroom is excellent and the actual room is full of the quirkiness that makes Prague special, the room had a large wooden Trunk as a table, ornate furniture and display cabinets and high ceilings that are wooden beamed. The reception is small and the breakfast is a nice continental with pastries, croissants and cold meats. The location is excellent for exploring both sides of the river and for value for money I couldn't rate this hotel high enough. If you are on a break with the missus and you want an affordable hotel that isn't a mainstream & commercial then the Charles is a great shout.

          Nothing really, there were no pan au chocolats and not enough of the lemon custard pastries! But no actual dislikes.

          Location

          You can here everything! In the hallway or outside in the streets. What is interesting is that once you open the window the noise is not that disturbing, but in winter it is too cold to sleep with an open window.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The location was good, near the Charles Bridge and some interesting stores. The front-desk staff were very helpful. The hotel is quite old but the bathroom had been renovated. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

          We would not stay at this hotel again because of the poor quality of the windows; at night, the noise from the street was disturbing. Also, the room itself needed some updating.

        • Couple
          8.2

          The location of hotel, central to everything. staff friendly and assisted well with regular enquirements. The facilities in room were adequate.

          The noise very early in morning coming from hall way and stairs.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The Charles is a very comfortable hotel which captures the spirit of the city of Prague, due to the construction, location and history of the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and we found the staff to be very helpful and polite. The hotel is very conveniently located near the tram stop, the Charles Bridge (for moonlit walks) and the castle and palace grounds. We plan to return and we would recommend the Charles to family and friends.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Excellent stay at The Charles. The staff were very friendly and happy to help with any questions. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels supplied. We were on the third floor and did not experience any noise from the street although, I believe other patrons did. The location is superb 100 yards from Charles Bridge and a 10 minute walk from Prague Castle. A lovely stay all round.

          No complaints.

        • Group of friends
          8.4

          Very beautiful, location is excellent and confortable.

          Nothing to complain about really.

        • Couple
          6.6

          Clean, nice little hotel, just a jump away from Charles Bridge.

          The room was definitely not worth 4 stars, it was very small.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The location was perfect. Just a few steps away from the Charles Bridge, and a couple of blocks away from the castle.

          Most of the front desk workers were great. It was the night front desk worker that could have been a little more accomidating.

          Perfect location, clean, comfortable rooms, welcoming staff, lovely bathroom. Would definitely recommend.

          Mattress wasn't the most comfortable, but I slept just fine.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          large suite rooms,great location-close to old Prague ,quiet at night,wonderful pub/ restaurant around the corner...

        • Couple
          5.0

          fantastic location at a distance 100m from the Charles Bridge

          the price is completely inadequate to the quality,the hotel does not seem neat, noisy pigeons outside the window, small bathroom, poor breakfast in the cramped basement with no windows, accompanied by fumes from the kitchen, part of the tables in a distant room,after paying a parking fee at another hotel a few hundred meters away, you need to find a masked parking a few streets away
