“Perfect location, nice hotel”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

This hotel locates in the best place for observing Prague - just under the Charles bridge. It takes no more than 10 minutes to the Prague Castle or Staromestska square and only 5 minutes to the nearest metro station (green line from the airport).
Breakfest was good. Nice view from the appartment windows - on the Charles bridge (even from WC :)) Appartment is clean, rather big.
Also we were allowed to check in earlier (at 10 AM) that was a big plus for us as we had a night flight.
Definitely will recommend this hotel as this is a perfect combination of pice and quality.

We stayed here for 4 days, the room was clean and tidy with a clean and tidy bathroom. The room and bathroom were not huge but adequate for a 4 day break. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking Charles Bridge. We found the staff to be warm and pleasant, and spoke good English. The breakfast was buffet style but you did have a choice of hot scrambled eggs or omelette. Considering the location of this hotel it was good value for the money.

Stayed here in June 2013, just as the national flood disaster was announced!
Hotel was quiet but we were still given a poky double with the smallest bathroom I've ever seen.
Reception staff varied from helpful and pleasant to downright rude, standing outside rather than manning the desk.
Breakfast fine - great omelettes.
Best thing is the location - unless the weather is appalling and the Charles Bridge totally closed to the public..

The hotel is perfectly located near the "Karlův most" (Charles bridge). Excellent location for a walk to the downtown historic center, as well as for a walk up to the Prague castle, or a nice evening walk alongside the Moldau river. The rooms are small but nice. The breakfast buffet is sufficient, with a few local danish pastry specials.
Don't order a taxi at the hotel desk to get to the airport, it costs more then a regular taxi (normal taxi fare: 550 Czk, hotel rate: 700 Czk).

Just got back from a 3 night stay at this wonderful hotel. From check in to check out everything was wonderful. The breakfast was plentiful, the room immaculate, ours overlooked the small loch and the bridge. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone who likes to be well looked after.

Certovka is an excellent four star hotel at the Western end of Charles Bridge. The rooms are well cleaned and a decent size, with views of either the Castle or Bridge/river. Its under five minutes walk from the nearest tram stop, ten minutes to the subway, and close to lots of great restaurants. Breakfast is buffet and cooked. Staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. If I went back to Prague, I'd definitely stay again. We got a good price on last minute.com

Room Tip: Third floor has good views, especially on the castle side

I stayed with my sisters for five days in Hotel Certovka. It is a perfect hotel for a pleasant stay in Prague. It is located next to the Charlesbridge with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. A short walk over the bridge brings you to the vibrant heart of Prague. The hotel is in walking distance of all the major cultural sites in Malá Strana, Hradčany, Old Town, Josefov and New Town. We never had to use the public transport. The hotel is beautiful and quite small. Our room was very spacious and looked very nice. Beside a bed and desk we also had a table with chairs next to the window (overlooking the Charlesbridge). It can be a bit noisy, especially on Friday and Saturday night. The beds were ok, but the pillows are very thin. The major downside of the hotel was in my opinion the room cleaning. The room was during our stay not vacuumed, a plastic bag of previous guests next to the heater was never removed, and the shelf above the washstand was not cleaned despite clearly visible stains. It is such a beautiful hotel, which made the poor quality of the cleaning more disappointing. The room is quite warm, despite of the air-conditioning. While we were in Prague, temperatures varied between 26-30 degrees. The breakfast was excellent, with for example different kinds of bread. One warm meal during breakfast (mainly different types of omelettes) is included in the room price. The breakfast room has only six tables, but it was usually very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. Certovka has an excellent price-quality ratio. I would certainly recommend this hotel.
