Hotel Karel IV
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Turnov
Reviewed 2 March 2013

I was afraid, must be honest. Not to many hotels in small town like Turnov. This was suppose to be one of the finest in town. Looks much worse, than the sunny pictures here on web. But still ok for the price. Parking area (but closing at 23:00 pm - no one can get out or in !) is righ behind the hotel, which is ok. Restaurant is only one - small, it is more like pub, then the restaurant. Rooms fine, there is shower, toilet, bed and TV - all you need from three star hotel in small city. I was pleased.

We stayed there a 12/04/2012 for one night only. Haven't booked in advanced, just got to the hotel and paid for the room. The place is really nice, there's internet too, but we haven't used it. It was not exepnsive, but I think we were there during low season. the staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast was good, although we were a bit late, so there was not much left. I would definitely come back there. or recommend it. It's only 5-7mins from the main square (where the TIC is) and it's well signed.

Room Tip: I dont even remember our room number, I'm sorry.

Very hard beds, dirty sheets and towels, old pipes in the bathroom just above your head. The water was brown and cold and that was in their top priced suite... No amenities in the rooms, no phone in the rooms, very slow wifi, no good service, the staff just doesnt care...

Room Tip: Don't give them your credit card or cash.

45 euros a night for a double en suite. Very clean,and a good breakfast. Good base to tour the North of the Country. Restaurant also very good - would certainly stay here again if in this area. outdoor swimming pool an added bonus in the summer - weather was very hot when we stayed here. Dinner for 4 with plenty to eat and drink was well under 100 euros and excellent food with large portions. Sat outside in very nice beer garden atmosphere. Staff willing, friendly and efficient but very little English spoken so be prepared to point, use your Czech phrase book oruse your German if you know any.

This hotel was booked for 4 nights by a local tour operator for our walking trip in Bohemia. We were very happy with it. Our room was very nice with balcony facing the rear parking lot and pool. The staff are very helpful and though some don't speak English, they will find someone to come to the desk who does. German is the second language in the Czech Republic. We walked from the train station to the hotel as taxi's can only be called. There is no taxi stand in front of the station. Google Maps said it was a 25 min. walk, but took us longer as we were pulling our bags. Two days later we did the same walk without bags and it took 20 min. The hotel restaurant has good food. especially the pizza and the breakfast buffet is varied. It is served in a large room as this hotel also serves tour groups. There is a nice outdoor deck off the restaurant and a great place to have a beer after a long day of hiking. Turnov is a wonderful town and a great base for walking in the immediate area. The countryside is beautiful and worth venturing out to see. We were lucky to be in Turnov during a week-end fair at the local park. Booths with music, beer, food, crafts, etc. Much fun. Also we went to an outdoor music concert in the evening of the Turnov Big Band. It was terrific and so professional, made up of high school, college and adult musicians. About 25 in all.

To be fair, it should be pointed out that the previous reviewer stayed in a much cheaper annex of the hotel which is billed as a hostel. Can't expect top rating for that...
We hosted a conference at this hotel and found it to be top-notch in all areas. They tailored our weekly menu to exactly what we asked of them in every detail including bringing in specialty beers. All of the rooms (that hosted our 30+ guests) were newly renovated with both WiFi and cabled Internet access at no charge. All furnishings were good quality. There is an on-site play area and outdoor pool and off-street parking that is locked and monitored at night.
The pizzeria/restaurant serves up sumptuous meals with daily specials. Breakfast is included in the room rate and includes a buffet of breads, cereals, fruits, jams, cold cuts and at least two hot item which change daily for variety.
The conference areas were easily configured to our needs and all electronics (screens, projectors, sound, tables and tablets...) were provided without additional charge to the agreed upon room rent.
The hotel staff and food servers were professional, friendly and accommodating. I can't think of anything negative to say. Their rates are a bargain compared to the quality and service provided. The owners put their best foot forward daily.
I would surely use them again and recommend them to any traveler or businessman.
Just a bit off the beaten path in town and current road repairs make it just a bit tricky to access. That should be rectified by year's end.
