My husband and me booked the room while traveling around Czech Republic (mostly driving). I have received a mail that certain problems occurred in holding the prepayment by the hotel. I have provided another credit card details (it should be noted that all cards were active and had a sufficient balance) while leaving krumlov (200km from Prague). We came to... More

I was very impressed with the service i received for the whole time i stayed in this hotel. Samir was such an accommodating and helpful person. The other staff weren't quite as friendly, but he outshone them. The hotel itself was perfectly located for us to walk around the city and explore the sights Prague had to offer. The decor... More

I picked this hotel based on location as I was only in Prague for 4 days and feel I lucked out. It is a few steps from the Charles Bridge and close to most of the major tourist attractions in Mala Strana. Stare Mesto and all the relevant sites there are just across the bridge and are, therefore, also quite... More

The hotel I originally wanted was booked, so a representative from AMOMA.com called to ask if I'd rather be put at the Charles Hotel. I reluctantly said, "Sure," so I had no idea what to expect when I got there. But I was pleasantly surprised! Our room was on the third/fourth floor. It was clean and definitely had a Bohemian...

A group of friends and I went for a short break and stayed at the Charles. Absolutely brilliant location. It's convenient for all that you want to see on a short break. The hotel itself is lovely with wonderful high ceilings and lots of historic detail. There was a minor issue with our rooms but that was sorted out quickly... More

I booked my room on Booking.com and asked for a quiet room but didn't get one. That could be because Booking.com never relayed that information but it was the ONLY drawback to our entire stay. The room was huge, extremely clean and the staff were always smiling and very nice. The decor was unique and the breakfast included with the... More

Dear Mr. Solomon T, thank you for your review. We are sorry that you did not like our hotel and maybe neither our historical town neighborhood (you rated low the Charles Bridge and St. Vitus Cathedral too). Our beautiful city and romantic hotel have rather historic character, which brings great things and also some bad things (narrow streets with a... More

This is a small 26 room hotel right near the Charles Bridge. The rooms are all different but have superb bathrooms and excellent bed linen in common. We had one room with an interesting painted ceiling and one with a wooden plank ceiling. The hotel has a very small lift so it was not a problem being on the third... More
