From the old wooden front door and the beautiful stained glass window inside the entrance I loved the feel of this quaint hotel. This small hotel is certainly not one of those bland hotels where it is difficult to know where in the world you are as they all look the same. We were warmly welcomed at reception and were... More

The hotel is in a great location just a few yards from Charles Bridge, plenty of restaurants and a short walk up to the castle area. The hotel is in an interesting old building with large rooms and old-fashioned furniture and flooring, nice and atmospheric and the shower / modern bathroom was clean.

we stayed for three nights and although on the top floor the room was nice size, air con worked well, spotlessly clean and well serviced. plenty of hot water in decent shower. breakfast room was a bit on the hot side and cramped, the food was varied and for a city hotel very nice

I booked 3 rooms and a potential customer we had planned to meet booked a 4th at The Charles Hotel for the night of 22/7/2015. On route to the hotel I had an email saying they had moved the three of us to their sister hotel ‘The Elite.’ Hence, as we had planned a meeting in the hotel, all 4... More

Booked The Charles Hotel on their website for family and friends visiting Prague because of the great location. Opted to pay for the rooms right away to receive the 15% discount offered on their website. Big mistake. When our party arrived, they were told there was a "technical problem" and that they would be placed at a sister location, Hotel... More

Really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located down a side street a stones throw from Charles bridge in a perfect location for exploring the city. We arrived a little early but were immediately and efficiently checked in. We'd requested a double bed by emailing the hotel, they responded quickly to this request and facilitated it. Room was a good... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods 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 neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood 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.
