Situated very close to prague castle at the top of a hill. Check in was very straightforward on arrival as I had done so online the day before via a link from the hotel. A welcome drink was also offered which was very nice. Had booked the airport shuttle service through the hotel which I can fully recommend. It costs 30 euros or 750 czech koruna which is around £24. More expensive than the bus and metro but less hassle and it took only about 20-25 minutes from the airport. It is a beautiful very czech antique style hotel With beautiful stained glass windows in the main reception area and bedrooms. There is a lovely staircase leading up to the bedrooms. An umbrella stand complete with umbrellas is available at the main entrance. Pastries and fruit are also available for guests during the day at reception free of charge.

The breakfasting room has a lovely painted mural on the walls. The room is quite small and at busy times this could be a problem. Breakfast was lovely. There was a choice of cereals, porridge, yoghurt, pastries, cold meats, cheese and salad. There was also a hot breakfast which varied each day with bacon, sausages, omelette, fried eggs and a vegetable. A toaster was available with a variety of breads and there was a coffee machine and kettle with a good selection of teas. Fresh fruit juice and a selection of fresh fruit was also available.

The bedroom was beautiful with its stained glass windows and it faced the front of the hotel over looking the street. It was very quiet. There was a large wardrobe, flat screen TV, the bathroom had a seperate shower and there were free toiletries available. There was also a hairdryer. There was a coffee capsule machine and a mini bar fully stocked with drinks and snacks but these all incurred an extra charge. The bed however was extremely hard.

The hotel location is excellent. About a ten minute walk to Prague Castle and Petrin hill which has many visitor attractions. It is about a ten minute walk downhill to Charles Bridge and on the way down there are some lovely souvenir shops. Wencelas Square and the old town are about another ten minute walk from Charles Bridge and it was lovely at this time of year with the christmas market stalls. The way back up to the hotel from the old town and Charles Bridge is uphill all the way so it may not be suitable for those with mobility problems. However there are many shops and restaurants to look at on the way back up which may give a bit of a distraction from the fact it is all uphill. A very pleasant stay in rhis antique style hotel.

Dear gelascotland,
Thank you for your stay with us and for your kind feedback to our services placed here on Tripadvisor. We are delighted that you have found the hotel, service and our staff to your expectations and that you had a great time with us and in Prague. We are also pleased by your kind comment regarding good organized transfer, which is the easiest way how to reach the hotel. It is true, that the hotel U Krale Karla is located on the hill next to the Prague Castle, for guests with walking difficulties we recommend to take the tram 22 on one of the stops under Castle and to arrive to the stop called Pohorelec, the hotel is just 5 minutes walking down from this stop.
We will be pleased to welcome you again in the future.

Yours faithfully

This was a lovely atypical hotel to stay at. It had a lot of vintage elements and they did their best to make it high quality. Room and toilet were clean, beds were okay. I found the lights a little dark but this might have been done on purpose to maintain its vintage aesthetics. Staff and breakfast were okay. There is a really nice cafe next to the hotel with delicious cakes and hot drinks.

I liked that the hotel was not near the crowded areas and had no problems walking up the hill to get to it. It is quite a walk to the bridge but we liked doing it as there were a lot of nice shops for souvenirs. Thank you for the lovely stay!

The hotel is in a great location and has charming/romantic interior. However it needs a little bit of TLC. It has loose fictures, temperamental TV and uncomfy beds. Reception welcome was lovely though found pile of laundry in front of our room. Check out took too long and breakfast was poor.

Our stay at this charming hotel was like taking a step back in time with today’s conveniences. It is surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants. The staff is professional and willing to assist us when needed. In fact, our taxi driver was ordered by a staff member. Upon her finding someone’s scarf, our taxi driver received a call, from hotel management, asking if we forgot a scarf! Talk about attention to detail!
