“Perfect for a City Break”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

A perfect location, away from the noise of the trams and city centre hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to all the main sights. With the castle on the hill behind and the Charles Bridge and the river only steps away this hotel is a real gem. Choose a room with a river view, a few stairs to climb (there is no lift) but it's worth the effort. A very large room, clean, with air con (which we were glad of as the weather was very hot) and a wonderful view of the bridge and the river. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and we found ourselves returning to sit at the riverside tables in the late afternoon for a beer. Thank you for a truley relaxing experience to a vibrant and beautiful city.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have air con and views.

If you looking at old world Charm and pristine settings out of a dream story, this is the place to stay Over looking the mighty river Vlata and the famous Charles Bridge.I had to carry my bags up and down with a little help from the hotel was no problem(no Elavators)for this fantastic location straight out of a Hansel and Grethel novel.A fantastic breakfast and equally fab and chic looking restaurant s what took the cake.Staff were equally helpful and though its not a Hilton or a Marriott in the sense of the word we loved this place tucked away under the bridge.Prague s the city to walk and we were right in the heart of this magnificent City.

Room Tip: We took the top floors river facing rooms and though we paid extra,it was worth it.

We traveled to prague in December 2011, and after ariving there (not knowing that they don't use euro's and not being able to make out a word of their language), it took us a while to find the hotel, but upon arival it was definately worth the search. The location of this hotel is perfect, the room we got had the most amazing view of the Charles bridge best we had in the entire Europe, it's exeptionally beautifull at night with all the lights. The rooms are huge, (compared to other European hotels) decor is slightly vintage with warm colours and wood furniture and a separate entry hall that makes the room even more spacious. Comfortable bathroom with a shower and clothes dryer (nescasary with all the rain we got) beds were very comfortable, we had free Wi-Fi and free umbrellas to borrow (yes, this too came in quite handy). The staff is very friendly, and meals were served at the hotel's restaurant next door. (all meals less 15% for hotel guests) breakfast which was included was a good selection and of good quality. Their other food were also good.

I would definately recomend this hotel for any tourist who wants a comfortable stay with a great location!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Charles bridge!!

The hotel is perfect. Our room (8) had a terrace from which you could see the river. From the moment we arrived and met Ondrej (pronounced Andre) at the front desk, we knew that we had made a wise choice of hotel. He was so helpful, brought our suitcases up the staircase; gave us excellent advise about what to do in Prague, and did so with a warm smile. Ondrej made our vacation a fantastic one.
We had phoned Eduard, the front office manager prior to our arrival and he was very efficient and polite.
It is clear to my husband and I that the Archibald Hotel chain knows how to find the best employees!


Don't even consider any other hotel. Archibald at the St Charles bridge is located walking distance to all the major sites. It's a hotel full of charm and comfort. Very tasty buffet breakfast, and the best espresso packets of coffee in the room (yum) Can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: room 8 on first floor - so comfy

This hotel is about a 20 minute ride from the airport. We requested airport pick up through the hotel. It was 670czk each way, in a private car and was very nice. As you can already tell by the other reviews, this hotel has a fabulous location, about half a block from the Charles Bridge. Although I think every tourist in Prague is walking across this pedestrian only bridge all day long, the hotel is amazingly quiet. We had one of the loft rooms (22, on the third floor) overlooking the river. It was lovely. Sometimes the website photos of rooms are misleading, but not in this case. The room was large and spacious. The bathroom was small, but very clean, and with the exception of luxury hotels, the size was much the same as most European hotels. In addition to the window overlooking the Vltava River, our room had several large skylights. The floors were wood, but made absolutely no noise when you walked across them. We have stayed in several places, where you could hear every footstep in the surrounding rooms. This room was very quiet. We couldn't even hear noise from the hallway. The breakfast was delicious. We were there for 3 nights, and never had an opportunity to eat an evening meal in the restaurant, but the menu looked very nice.
The loft rooms have their own air conditioner, which in the summer is probably very necessary. We were there in late March, and the days were sunny. The room was warm, but we just opened the window and it was perfect.
The staff were helpful and friendly. They have computers in the lobby that are hooked up to a printer, so we printed up our boarding passes before we left. You never want to say a place is perfect, but this hotel is charming, clean, cozy, and comfortable at a very reasonable price. What more do you need? Very close to perfect.

Now you have found the Hotel just book it! It is wonderful, everywhere is clean, the staff are lovely, the rooms are huge, although bathrooms are a bit small. the Hotel is right in the middle of all the attractions, and they are all within walking distance. Prague is very easy to get around. Try the 2 day hop on hop off bus, which you will find them stood in the old town square with a red umbrella. the food is lovely in Prague, our favourite was a static boat on the bridge just up from charles Bridge, it serves lovely pasta and chocolate pudding as well as specialities. Make sure you book a transfer from the airport, it was well worth it. I booked with ?Travel republique and got a good deal. Prague Castle is a must see. It was lovely being so close to the charles Bridge you got to walk along it every night and see the beautiful castle all lit up, it's fairytale land!!

Room Tip: We had room 19, it has a big lounge and is a twin room. room 8 has a balcony!
