In the February I and my friend spent the night in this amazing hotel. We originally came to the hotel for dinner only on the recommendation of a friend who pointed us to the excellent fish dishes, prepared by Spanish chef. It is not a hotel built on the meadow, but it is surrounded by a beautiful and refined hotel courtyard. Young lady at the front desk greeted us pleasantly, and indicated us to the restaurant where we had reserved a table. he service was very friendly. Although a friend is a connoisseur of wine, we let the waiter to recommend us some special and we were not disappointed. We were so pleased that we stayed in a hotel overnight and we will definitely come back again. We would like also to see the hotel in a warm spring or summer weather and have a dinner or lunch on the terrace, which was unfortunately unavailable due the winter time.

Room Tip: If you will stay overnight, ask on the reception for the room with the view to the river.

We came here with my partner for one night in December. It started really well, dinner was tasty, room was nice, nice enviroment close to the river.
But...
We could hear trains passing by during the night as the train tracks were almost next to the hotel.
Breakfast was dissapointing, my partner didnt eat much.
We never even seen the pool or wellness, reception didnt tell us there was such a thing.
We have book a horse and carrige in the morning. We have seen this being offered at the car park in the village for 150 Czech money (8 euro) per person. Receptionist ordered it and carrige came to the hotel. I have asked how much it is just to make sure, he said 2000 Czech money ( around 80-90 euro)!!!!! I went back to the receptionist who was standing outside and told her that this is not what we ordered, she then without any answer went back inside and we were forced to take this carrige. So, we have paid for 30mins ride more than we have paid for 1night in this hotel with breakfast.
When I recieved feedback email about our stay I have explaint to the man who has sent it what happened and that maybe they should let people know about these ridicilous prices. I never heard back from him, no appology, no email that they will make sure this will never happen again.
They probably send this email and expect only good feedback... Wont go back, thats for sure.

Room Tip: make sure you ask for a non smoking one if you are a non smoker

Dear client,

We would like to apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced during your stay at Romantic Hotel Mlyn. Unfortunately we did not receive the mentioned feedback. You have probably sent it to the agency through which you booked your stay. We can assure you that otherwise we would react promptly and immediately solve any issue, because our goal is to make each guest satisfied with our services. Concerning the carriage ride which you have ordered – it was a duty of the receptionist to inform you that there are basically two options how to use this service. First one is to be picked up at the central parking at Karlstejn, where the price 150,- CZK is set for person, but client have to wait until whole capacity (11 persons) of carriage is filled and only then the carriage starts its ride. Second option is to have an exclusive rent, in which case the carriage picks up clients in front of the hotel, but of course client has to pay for whole capacity of the carriage. The price for the exclusive rent of the carriage, starting its route from hotel Mlyn, is 200,- CZK per person (in case all seat are used), or 2000,- CZK for whole carriage no matter how many persons are on the board. All this information is easily accessible on our website. Unfortunately it seems that our receptionists failed to communicate this information properly, which is of course not right and against the way how we would like to treat our customers. Please, once more, accept my apology for this miscommunication and be sure that we have taken measures to prevent similar situation from happening. If you ever decide to visit our hotel again, we will gladly do everything to make you stay as comfortable as possible, and trouble free.

Best regards,

Hotel Management

This was highly recommend to us by friends for a weekend escape and It was wonderful! It's about 40 minutes outside of Prague. The scenery is beautiful. The hotel is very romantic on the river with incredible views of the Karstejn Castle. The food was fantastic they have a chef from Spain, the staff was very hepful. Golf is just around the corner and they have a Camel Klea and Donkeys right in the hotel courtyard - very friendly. The rooms were beautiful, done in style. We would highly recommend this hotel either for a romantic escape or even for a business meeting - they have a great terrace for parties, weddings. They also have a spa which we didn't use since there was so much to do.

We got interesting tip on trip, during our stay in Prague – medieval castle Karsltejn, located in small village 20 kilometers outside Prague. We took a train there from Prague main station and after about 30 minutes we arrived to a picturesque little town on the river Berounka. We crossed the river, climbed up the hill, using old royal route filled with various shops and stands, to the fabulous castle, surrounded by woods. The castle is fantastic and very well preserved. If you want to see its interiors, you have to take one of the three types of tours. Two of them need to be reserved beforehand because of its popularity and limited number of people who are allowed to enter. However, the biggest surprise which we have discovered, in Karsltejn, was restaurant in hotel Mlyn, located just across the river, on left side of the castle. The hotel can be seen when arriving to Karlstejn, it is on the river bank with its own private island. We stop by there for late lunch, hopping that hotel will provide certain level of services which other restaurant, in the vicinity of the castle, with plastic furniture, apathetic waiters and over priced unhealthy food, seem to lack. When arriving to the hotel, we were immediately impressed by the manor-look of the whole area. It was like arriving to a fairy tale – picturesque court in front of the hotel with old decorated well and beautifully painted dovecote. The hotel restaurant is was also very impressive, solid wooden floor, massive bar, comfortable furniture and big terrace with beautiful river view. The offered menu is mainly composed of fresh fishes (you can choose your fish from the fish tank) and steaks, although they have also some meals for vegetarians. We were seated on the sunny terrace and ordered sea bass in salt curst and two rainbow trout with basmati rice and beef steak with baked potatoes. The preparation of the meals took little longer, but it was ok since we were informed beforehand that fishes, especially the sea bass need more time in kitchen, and believe me it was worth waiting. The sea bass was splendid and trout – I am having troubles to find the right words to describe the pleasure I had eating it, but you can be sure that freshness really matters and in restaurant Mlyn the fishes are as fresh as they can be. The beefsteak looked also attractive and from what I heard the meat was absolutely fantastic, very soft and juicy. After we finished our meals we ordered lime sorbets with coffees and enjoyed the beautiful view from the terrace. The whole experience from this place was just perfect, from warm welcoming in the reception, friendly and professional waiters, fresh and tasty meals to breath taking river views. The only downside was waiting time for the fishes, but hey I guess some meals are worth waiting for and this is certainly the case. I can nothing but recommend this restaurant to anybody who finds himself looking for upstanding service and fresh, tasty meals in Karlstejn. Actually I would recommend this facility to anybody who is traveling in Czech lands, because this place truly a small jewel among restaurants. Thank you restaurant Mlyn for great time !!!!

We stayed two nights at the Myln Karlstejn, including a night of the Romantic Package. The hotel is (for us) perfectly located on the river Berounka, with nicely manicured grounds on the river's bank and a very nice terrace overlooking the river and the farmland on the other side.

Upon entering our room there was a nice fruit plate, a beautiful rose and rose petals in the bath - all nice touches included with the romantic package. Unfortunately, and this is the only down side of our stay our room (203) was very dark. There is only one window and the number of internal lights is, in our view, very inadequate. This feedback was provided so hopefully the hotel will add a couple more lamps near the desks. The bathroom is large and bright, with a motion detector light - no switch needed, which was nice in the middle of the night. One benefit of being on the riverside is the peaceful sound of the river below. The view out the window is also very enjoyable and tranquil.

There is no special romantic meal, you simply order from the menu with a credit, but staff did a superb job in making the meal special, with a nice tablecloth, rose petals on the table, candlelight, and very attentive service. While a couple of other reviews have been critical of the food our experience was just the opposite. We ate at the restaurant both nights - once on the very nice terrace, the other in the restaurant at a table with a great view across the river, and were very pleased with both meals. I am not normally a big eater of fish, but had trout one night and zender the other - both local and both very good. Service was top-notch. All our other dishes and desserts were also very good and well presented. Breakfast was good with a fellow cooking eggs and/or pancakes at your request, another nice offer.

Needing to leave early (before breakfast began) to catch a flight the receptionist offered to have a breakfast package (sandwiches and fruit) prepared for us the previous evening - a very nice gesture.

Easy parking and good internet connection in the room

The only thing holding us back from an 'Excellent' assessment was the darkness of room, which can be addressed with some improved lighting. Otherwise, the Myln Karlstejn enjoys a great location (if you like the peace and quite of a rural river and beautiful grounds - and yes there is a rail line nearby but it is well-hidden by a bluff of trees and the sound of the trains barely noticeable), has pleasant staff providing very attentive service, and excellent meals.

If back in the area we would certainly return.

Room Tip: Certainly stay in a room facing the river.
