About The Charles

Location.
Perfectly situated in Prague's historic "Little Quarter" (Malá Strana), The Charles hotel is between the Old Town and the Castle and 100 meters from the Charles Bridge. A tram stop and the Malostranska metro station are nearby, offering guests efficient, easy transport to the rest of the city.

Hotel Features.
The small and charming Charles hotel is housed in an architecturally interesting building, which offers modern comforts without sacrificing the charm of its historical and romantic setting. There are a variety of restaurants nearby though guests need go no further than the luxurious lobby bar for cocktails, and the included buffet breakfast is served onsite every morning. Charles Hotel also has complimentary wireless Internet access in the public areas and guestrooms.

Guestrooms.
The beautifully restored Charles Hotel offers guestrooms with great character, featuring Baroque-style period furnishings, parquet flooring, and beamed-wood ceilings. Between the beams, the ceilings have been elaborately painted with scenes of foliage, looking down upon the guests as they rest in their luxurious beds. Rooms include minibars, coffee/tea makers, and televisions.

Nice centrally located in Mala Strana
We enjoyed the central location of the hotel and the great breakfast bar. The bar next door stays open late and was loud until late each night.

great location, compact rooms.
Great location short walk from Charles Bridge. Rooms are comfortable but quite small. Breakfast is below average. Reception staff is excellent. Overall a decent hotel, but perhaps you could get better value without going too far from Charles Bridge.

Perfect for Prague
Great location on this hotel and a very unique design makes it a fun stay. Breakfast was good. AC was nice. The hotel is steps from the Charles Bridge and many other sites. It was clean and quiet for the location. Great hotel for the price. We were very happy with our three night stay.

Fair4.0
Tiny room, LOUD music played all night long
I wanted to stay in a more historic building and The Charles looked charming and well-located. These things both turned out fine, but the room was extremely small. In fact, the door was so small that I kept hitting my head coming in and out. It was probably about 5'2" so even shorter people would have to bend down to get in. I could live with that, and it was charming in its way as well, but the problems came at night. The hotel has 2-3 all-night bars or clubs adjacent, and they play their music extremely loud. I didn't end up able to sleep more than a couple hours a night. When I say loud, I mean it's loud enough to make out the song lyrics, and you can feel the bass shaking the bed. When I complained, they offered to move us to a room that was even louder, or said we could pay an extra $50 to move into an upgraded room, but they couldn't guarantee that would be quit either. We ended up checking out in the morning and canceling the rest of our stay. Thankfully Hotels.com was able to get me a refund!
