3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great old hotel, clean, friendly & courteous staff. Too far from old city, but close to public transport & well priced.

The best hotel we've stayed in a long time. I loved the antique decor, the jacuzzi in room, and the hearty breakfast. The hotel is very conveniently located near the tram line. The staff was very courteous, and helpful. When we came in without any local currency, they provided us with tram tickets and location of the best place to convert currency.

This hotel was very nice for the price. It's close to everything you need, tram to the center, bus, supermarket, restaurants, and other markets. Nice front desk people, nice rooms and bathrooms, and in safe area. The only problem is some rooms the wifi doesn't work well at all and the lift is very small and slow. Overall a nice value however.

The King Charles Boutique in Prague was a very good hotel. The location is out of the city center but is within five to ten minutes walking distance from most attractions. There are trams conveniently located near the hotel and the hotel does sell passes for using it as well as the subway system. The public transportation does get you to all the sites that Prague has to offer. The neighborhood was very safe and there were many restaurants located nearby. The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast buffet is very good with a large selection of both warm and cold breakfast foods as well as fresh fruit. The staff was excellent! English was spoken and they were very helpful. Alexander at the front desk went out of his way to make sure we were able to navigate Prague and he even went with us to the tram station to help us purchase tickets for our trip to the airport. Because of the staff I give this hotel five stars.

Parking was not free. Breakfast was good. Jacuzzi cost extra to use. Free drink upon arrival. Decent breakfast. Beds were hard. Good value.

Big armoires, in every room, great breakfast, tram station across the street 3 stops to karlova park and 4 - 6 stops to old town.

Near trams and not too far a walk from the center of town. Medium-size room, well-kept up. When the AC wasn't working on the hottest days of the year, they gave me a portable unit. Breakfast is ordinary.

This hotel was perfect for our weekend getaway! The room was beautiful, clean, and the staff were incredibly helpful! Upon checking in we were greeted by the receptionist with a traditional Czech shot which was delicious! Then the receptionist explained on a map where we were and what trams to take where, VERY helpful! The hotel was a 30 minute walk to Old Town or a shorter tram ride (we choose to walk along the river). The only issue we had with the hotel was there was no real shower, just a bath with a removable head. Their breakfast was alright, but it was free none the less! All in all we had an amazing stay and WILL stay there again.

The room was excellent and the staff very helpful. The hotel is located only a 15-20 min walk from downtown Prague. If you don't like to walk, you can take the tram which is located about 3 blocks away. The hotel is also close to some excellent restaurants. Traditional Czech and other cuisines can be found within a short distance. Highly recommend the Italian restaurant "La Boheme" on Vratislavova.

Excellent Hotel! Great location - only a 7 mins tram ride to the city center. Awesome rooms + Jacuzzi. The only thing is the breakfast wan't that great.

I selected this hotel based on other reviews on Orbitz. Prauge is a much larger city than anticipated so the location was not as central as I originally expected but it was very easy to get to the center of town via tram. The rooms are beautiful. The jacuzzi listed in the hotel description is a jacuzzi-style tub. The description also lists a fitness center and room service however these do not exist at the hotel. The hotel will help you order a pizza to your room which is very nice. Overall the staff is very helpful and friendly. The breakfast at this hotel is also very delicious.

Our stay at the King Charles Residence was great. We received a really spacious room with all the accommodations we were promised on the website, including a jacuzzi bathtub, which was great after a long day of walking around the cobblestone streets of Prague. Breakfast was a nice added bonus with good coffee and juice available. Overall, a really great value. However, I never found directions on how to get to the hotel upon arrival at the train station, so we ended up taking a 15 minute detour to eventually get to the right street, so make sure you know exactly how to get there before you arrive!

We arrived at the hotel a couple of hours before check-in time, nevertheless the room was waiting for us. However, the entire check-in process took quite a long time. The room was located at second floor, overlooking the street at the railway line. However, thanks to double glazed windows there was little noise reaching us. The room was very well furnished with crystal chandeliers and a bathroom featuring a jacuzzi bathtub! Something extraordinary considering the price! Unfortunately, the interior of the closets could use some considerable dusting! The hotel was located a little bit outside of the centre but the Stare Mesto and Hradcany were easily accessible by tram. Overall, the hotel represents extraordinary value for money and good service although it is not exactly centrally located.

This was a wonderful hotel. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. It was clean. The bed was outstanding. Overall, a great experience. The only issue is parking if you arrive by car. You can park along the street if you can stomach it. They have a pass that allows you to park there for free.

The King Charles Botique was an excellent hotel for the money! The location was descent...If you like walking it is great (20 minutes to the center). If you do not like to walk, then the tram service is an excellent option at a very affordable price at around $1.50 US dollar each way per person. Here is some brief description of the hotel: It is a hybrid bed and breakfast. The rooms are not huge, but no smaller than a Marriott. The bathrooms are tight, but spotless (no shower curtain, but this is standard in Prague). The breakfast was adequate and much like what you get at a Hampton Inn (up scale american continental breakfast. Their are no ammeneties to the hotel outside of the breakfast in the morning, but at the price you pay nobody should complain. TV is non existent...2 russian chanels and CNN and BBC Europe in english (no DVD or rentals available). Internet is available in the room at around $12 USA a day and has adequate speed...Their is an internet Cafe next door at around $3.50US per hour (going rate in Prague). Food Options: Their are about 7 restaurants within a 1/4 mile and another 10 within a half of mile...Good traditional Czech food, which is meat and potatoes. If you get a couple of blocks away from the center of the tourist attractions you are in great shape for cheaper prices with basically the same food. A half litre premium beer runs you about $1.50 US dollars (Gambrinus, Pilsner, Budweiser, Kolza). A nice size standard cheese pizza will run you about $6US. Desert's are great and usually around $3US. Side around under $2US. If you get their special of the night you can expect to pay around $7US at the most and you will get plenty of food. Bread is always an extra and is $1US per basket. Money and Exchange: Well what you read elsewhere is the same here. Be careful of the money exchanges...Most have two rates and is referred to under or over the limit, which is around a 30% different in currency exchange. If you elect to change then show how much you will be giving and ask them to show you on calculator how much you will get in Czech Crown. ATM or what they refer to as Bankomat is the best option...Bankomat is usually at a rate of 3% higher than what the changer's will get, which more than cover's the standard $2.50 Bankomat fee that is charged by most. Airport money exchange does not have limit's but is about 10% lower than the average money exchange without limits. The money exchanger's are known to be the worst to tourist and as it was explained to me, the worst money exchanger's in the world are located in Czech it is just their nature to rip off the tourist if they can...It happended to me (only got screwed out of $22US) even after the guy said he would give me "X", he gave me the reduced amount so best to avoid the exchanges with limits .(don't pay attention to the no commission sign, you need to focus on the sign's that say no limits!!!) Taxi's from Airport: Make sure you have enough Czech crown to cover the taxi if you do not have the Euro, because the driver's will discount what the going rate is by about 20 to 30%. Check with your hotel on what the rate should be and get that much at a minimum at airport. Airport exchange again is about 10% lower than the going market exchange price, but without limits so it is a fair option to get you into to town where you can get started with the ATM's machines for you Czech Crown's.

To echo other people's comments, this is definitely not a 4-star hotel. PROS: *The rooms are nice and full of character. *Marble floor in the bathroom and the jacuzzi bathtub *Free wireless (pretty good) *Free breakfast (pretty good too) CONS: *Single beds are TINY (I know this is standard with hotels in Europe, but still...) and I kept almost falling during the night. *You have got a view on the train tracks, with the noise that comes with it. Didn't bother me, but I could see how others may have a problem with it *What was really, really sub-par was service. Check-in was OK, but during brekfast, the cook had the TV turned on at full volume at 7am while guests were trying to enjoy their morning coffee. NOT COOL. Also, the hotel has no restaurant or room service! *Location really blows. Nothing charming about the neighborhood, and it's a 20-25 minute walk to the City Center. Sure, there's the tram, but I am just saying. OVERALL Now, I paid under 35 Euros for a room WITH breakfast, so I still think this is good value for the money. At that price, the only single room you can get is in a hostel filled with loud backpackers. My rating of 3-stars reflects the price-to-quality ratio on this, which is not bad at all.
