We had some issues with the room we reserved, but the manager was at our room within 10 minutes to sort it out, everything was sorted immediately to everyone's satisfaction, the room was river view and what a great view of the Charles bridge and old town across the river, the breakfast was fantastic and very helpful staff, we had dinner which was great, overall we will be back to PRAGUE and we will undoubtedly book the same hotel.

We stayed here for four nights at the beginning of October. It is a charming old hotel with character but also has a spotlessly clean modern interior. We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor which had rafters but was still perfectly spacious. The bathroom was huge and very clean. It was relatively quiet inside, there was a bit of noise from outside from the square out the front but it was not a problem for us. Reception staff were polite and very helpful. Breakfast was unimaginative and not especially tasty but the rolls were ok. The hotel's setting on Kampa Island is great, very picturesque. It is slightly away from the main strips but still within easy walking distance of all the main attractions on both sides of the Charles Bridge.

Prague was our 2nd leg of our Euro trip. We took the overnight train from Budapest and arrived at the Archibald at about 730am - needless to say, our room was not ready as it was not check in time. The gentlemen at the front desk took our bags and we went exploring. Archibald at the Charles Bridge is the PERFECT location. We walked everywhere, not once having to spend a dime cabbing to places. Our room was ready at noon (I believe room 25) It was incredible. It was large with a great view of the Bridge. In the front they also have pamplets with lots of different things for you to do and we went to the most awesome underground tour thanks to them. The service is like no other - everyone was so helpful and friendly. I highly reccomend this hotel and will be staying their again on my next trip to Prague.

My husband and I originally booked four nights here and then 2 months before our trip we added another night and what a good decision it was ! I emailed the hotel prior to our trip to ensure we had the same room as our bookings were 2 separate ones this was no problem and they also organised our airport transfer too. On arrival we were greeted by one of the many friendly staff who work here. The room was huge with a seperate lobby area and bathroom with shower. The room was spotlessly clean and warm and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was most enjoyable and you were under no pressure to rush your meal. Staff were helpful with directions when we needed them. We ate in the restaurant one evening too which I can highly recommend the goulash soup ! Also as hotel guests you get a 10% discount in the restaurant. Also free wifi. All in all a fantastic hotel and we will definitely be returning here. Two very happy travellers !

My husband and I stayed fours nights and I can not say enough great things about the Archibald at the Charles Bridge. The staff, room, ambiance, location and restaurant were all excellent.

The staff was wonderfully helpful. When the airline lost our bags the front desk made it their personal responsibility to call the airport and get updates. They immediately provided a map and showed us where we could purchase clothes and toiletries until our bags were found. And when the airport finally dropped off our luggage the front desk brought them up to our room. Throughout our stay they were very helpful with directions and even went the extra mile to print out train times to Kunta Hora.

The room was quaint and romantic. I have a feeling it was one of the smaller units in the hotel but we got an excellent deal through trip advisor and it was still larger than many hotel rooms we have stayed in throughout europe. On the top floor - it had a small window with an amazing view of the Vltava River and the Charles Bridge. It also had two large windows, that while only looking out on the opposite building's roof, let in tons of light. And you can't help but think of days gone by when staring up at the large wooden beams that support the cathedral ceiling. The bed is on the stiffer side, and although I prefer a softer bed, it was very comfortable and warm. The shower had great pressure and the bathroom was modern. The mini-fridge was well stocked.

The location of the hotel is unparalleled. Situated on the far side of the Charles Bridge it is far enough away from the tourist crowds to feel intimate but close enough to still feel like your in the action. It sits in a small square next to a lovely park and is surrounded by delicious restaurants. (See other trip advisor reviews :) As one reviewer mentions - there is a staircase toward the end of the Charles Bridge that will lead you right to the square.

The provided breakfast is great. And while it does stay the same from day to day they offer a wide variety of perfectly prepared items. This included all the breakfast norms from fried eggs, bacon, cereal, cheese, yogurt, bread, scrambled eggs... (This may be American - but I liked taking the super soft bread and creating an egg sandwich with the fried eggs and bacon.) We also had a chance to try the restaurant for lunch and the goulash was very good and filling.

We felt really welcome throughout our stay. It seemed like the staff really appreciated their guests. They even left us a complimentary bottle of Champagne on our second night to celebrate our honeymoon. We drank it just outside of the hotel on the bank of the Charles River. (It was a really kind gesture and created an excellent memory on our honeymoon.)

When we return to Prague there is no doubt that we will stay at the Archibald at the Charles Bridge. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
