My teenage daughter and I had a delightful stay at this well located property. The staff was extremely helpful, from providing directions to arranging for our airport transportation. The room was spacious and well furnished, and also completely charming. The restaurant was good, breakfast fresh, tasty and offered many options, and the overall experience was wonderful. We highly recommend it, especially for vacation travels who want to be near Old Prague: we were steps away from the Charles Bridge.

Stayed three nights and loved the location. The staff were mostly extremely friendly. We arrived after midnight and were checked in, got swept up in excitement and opened the window - that's a mistake in summer. Hundreds of mosquitoes got in in just a few minutes!! I asked for bug spray and the bewildered concierge just shrugged, but as I get eaten alive husband went down to ask if there was another room. Once all was explained, they moved us straight away to an equally comfortable room. We were lucky it was vacant!
Great spot to walk everywhere, excellent bathroom (good showers are hard to come by!), fantastic for a comfortable clean retreat from the beautiful old town.
Tip: do not open the windows! :)

Stayed: July 2014

Archibald is a charming hotel perfect situated at Kampa Island close to all main attractions but in a quiet area. Our room was spacious and clean, overlooking the small cobblestoned square. The beds were comfortable, but the weather was very hot and it would have been nice with sheets instead of the sleeping quilts. The room had air-condition, but when turning it on, the (free) WiFi dropped out. Very nice bathroom, small, but well equipped. Great breakfast buffet with plenty of choice. Very helpful and friendly staff. Just a few steps away is a lovely green park, where you can relax after a long day in the city. In spite of my small complains we will not even consider another hotel next time we will visit Prague.

Kampa Island is the ideal location in Prague. Archibald hotel is right on the river with an outstanding view of the Charles Bridge from the waterside dining tables. Friendly, helpful staff and nice, clean rooms.

I could not fault this Hotel, it is spotlessly clean both externally and internally.
It has 24/7 reception cover and no matter what time we entered or left we always got a friendly greeting and a smile, in fact any of the staff whenever we passed them by smiled and greeted us.

We had one of the Garden Rooms (33) and it felt like our own little corner of the world.

Breakfast caters for all tastes with an array of fresh food available in buffet style dining and hotel guests receive a 20% discount when dining outwith breakfast.

Located a mere 10 minute walk from the Metro and Tram Routes it is perfectly situated for being a "Tourist" and also for getting from the Airport.

Go to the Public Transport desk get a 60 minute ticket more than enough to get you there.

Get the AE119 Express Bus to Dejvicka Metro Station on the A Line ( They are planning to extend it all the way to the Airport) Then travel to Malostranska come out of the station (Trams facing you) turn right towards the bridge but stay on the right hand side cross over straight in front pf you (Keep Le Bistro kampa on your right) Just keep straight on that road to where the road bends around under the Charles Bridge Na Kampa and the Hotel is at the end of the street on the left.


It is perfectly placed to get to any of the sights and attractions and there are loads of Restaurants and Bars within walking distance.

Go down the Alleyway immediately opposite and you can get to The "Lennon Wall" and the "John Lennon Pub" Both well worth a visit or Go Left and around towards the rear to access The Kampa Park and the walkway along the river.

Room Tip: The Garden Rooms are lovely and are in a quiet Courtyard.

We didn't spend a great deal of time at the hotel it had a lovely relaxed atmosophere. The hotel is just a short walk from all the main attractions, but the location is such that you feel you can get away from the crowds if you want to. The rooms were comfortable, nicely decorated & clean. The bathroom was spotless and the shower over the bath powerful. The staff were friendly & helpful. The buffet breakfast had plenty of choice. Our group consisted of 12 people and everyone was impressed. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: A court yard room over looking the river has a good view & is quiet.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel, first time with my husband several years ago and in July 2014 with two friends. I was worried re- visiting it wouldn't be as good as I remembered especially as I recommended it to my friends but I needn't have worried it was just as I remembered: A very warm welcome, extremely helpful staff that are a credit to the hotel. Our room was extremely spacious, very clean and comfortable, the air conditioning was quiet but extremely effective in 30 degree plus heat. Breakfast was very good with lots of variety.
The hotel is very well situated for sightseeing , near to Prague castle, the old town, Perin hill, the Jewish synagogues etc.. And of course Charles Bridge. Lots of restaurants near by all in all this was a fabulous trip and I certainly wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel to all my friends and family.

Room Tip: The family suite is extremely spacious for a group of friends as well as a family.
