Even though the architecture is good. It is spooky and the elevator is shaking. I prefer using stairs. Breakfast is OK. The rest I don't really like. Also the hotel is not that cheap either. But it is near Charles Bridge

Dear guest Thank you for your time to share your experience with The Charles Hotel. We are glad that you enjoyed our central location, the breakfast and that you appreciated our unique architecture. We are sorry that you were not happy with our elevator and with your booking rate that you mention might have been a bit too much in your opinion. Hopefully the location made it up to you and you would consider visiting us again. We would like to make sure that everything would be just perfect next time. It would be our pleasure to have the chance of seeing you again. Yours faithfully Jolana Hrotkova Guest Relations Manager The Charles Hotel jolana.hrotkova@hotel-charles.eu

We stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of March. The hotel is in a fantastic location, just at the end of Charles bridge. It is surrounded by excellent bars and restaurants. The hotel is a beautiful old building, our room had high ceilings and was nicely decorated. We had tea and coffee making facilities, a safe, a fridge and mini bar. The hotel was very warm, sometimes too warm, so we had the window open. Breakfast was very good. There was a small selection of hot food, normally eggs, and a nice selection of pastry’s and cereal. Breakfast is downstairs under reception. This area is a Chinese restaurant by night. My only criticism was that the rug in our room needed a hoover and the throw on the bed needed a wash( in my OCD opinion) Perfect location, definitely worth the money, you can walk everywhere from here.

Dear guest We would like to thank you for your time to share a review based on your March stay. It is great that you took the advantage of our perfect location right in the centre and walked everywhere. We are delightful to know that you were happy with your room and appreciated its decor and amenities too. We are glad that you also enjoyed the breakfast. Thank you for pointing our some minor insufficient cleaning issue. Even though the rug and bed plaid are cleaned daily or after every check out, we made amendments so they got a deep cleaning. Hopefully there will be another chance to serve you in the future. We would be pleased to welcome you next time. Yours faithfully Jolana Hrotkova Guest Relations Manager The Charles Hotel jolana.hrotkova@hotel-charles.eu

We stayed here recently and were very impressed. Lovely old hotel, it was spotlessly clean and the staff were excellent, helpful and very hard working. Breakfast was really good, plenty of food and lovely coffee. The location of the hotel is spot on we were able to walk everywhere. I can’t wait to visit again.
