Hotel U Krale Karla Hotel 4 star

Amy Adejokun Section editor

U Krale Karla is the perfect fairytale setting for those who fancy a journey back in time to the Middle Ages and an insight into religious art. Its limited number of guest rooms makes it a rather exclusive destination where tranquillity and pleasure are top priorities. The rooms themselves are large and the services provided perfectly decent but not over the top. Do bear in mind that despite the view of the castle used to sell the establishment in the brochure, it's actually more like a view of the surrounding wall and foundations. Nevertheless, this is still the sort of place you could easily fall in love with.

    Location 5.33 /10

    The hotel stands at the foot of the castle at the top of the pretty little paved Neruda street, home to a great many shops, with plenty of typical Czech restaurants and bars in the vicinity. The nearest public transport links can be found at the end of the street, with the tramway and metro both respectively 7 and 20 minutes away. If you're tired of being on your feet and fancy a spot of relaxation after the endless sightseeing, head over to the shade of the trees in the park on the neighbouring hill, where you can enjoy some fresh air and some stunning views of the city at the same time.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    Its limited number of guest rooms means you're guaranteed a certain degree of peace and quiet here. The 19 rooms come in several categories, namely Standard, Deluxe, and Suite, all of which are spacious and in keeping with the rest of the building: chunky wooden furniture, stained-glass windows, canvas drapes, dried flowers, frames, and painted ceilings. They don't do anything by halves here, which you really have to love as it's what gives this place its charm. It is worth pointing out, though, that the windows are small and the amenities somewhat mediocre, with little more than a flat-screen television broadcasting a wide selection of channels, a stocked minibar, and a free safe. Only the rooms on the 4th floor and the Suites have air-conditioning, there is a charge for using the Wi-Fi, and there is no room service. The bathrooms are large and perfectly pleasant, with a cosy decor and marble floors. They come complete with a hair-dryer and a shower (in 13 of the rooms) or a bathtub (in the remainder). The walls are nice and thick, too, so you needn't worry about getting a peaceful night's sleep.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The so-called 'King Charles' hotel opened in 1994 and is housed in a pretty 3 storey building with a revamped façade. Originally a Gothic-style building that belonged to the Benedictine religious order, it was later reconstructed as a Baroque house. The lobby quickly sets the tone for the rest of the establishment, particularly as the owners are keen collectors of antiques and religious art. You'll find plenty of angels, saintly figures, stained glass windows, and gilding here to grab your attention, though the frescoes painted in the breakfast room are somewhat less convincing. The place abounds with antique solid wooden furniture, tapestries, and stained-glass windows, giving guests the feeling that they've been invited to a party! This is just the start of things to come as there are even more surprises in store as you head off to your room. You'll feel as if you're entering a medieval village, complete with little alleyways and bridges, not to mention the superb illuminated stained glass ceiling several metres in length. You'll also find many pictures and paintings portraying old Prague and other places around the world, dating back as far as the 13th century. One thing is for sure, this place certainly has a few surprises in store!

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The tidy breakfast room is located on the ground floor and boasts some pretty busy decor. Will you be able to handle the frescoes on the walls depicting scenes of chivalrous gentlemen from the Middle Ages? Breakfast, a pretty comprehensive offering of fruit juices, cereals, various breads, pastries, etc., along with a selection of hot dishes, is served from 7:30am to 10:00am.

    To know

    The hotel belongs to the same group as the U Pava hotel, which offers the same Baroque ambience.

        Hôtel de conte de fée, pour ravir son amoureuse! J'avais réservé une "Deluxe", qui ne convenait pas, on a eu une suite sans surclassement, extraordinaire, avec cheminée et coin cuisine et de super vitraux aux fenêtres donnant sur la peite rue Uvoz, très calme, en haut de la pittoresque Nerudova. Situé aux pieds des marches de Hradcany, la descente vers le pont Charles prend 10mn, la remontée le soir est plus longue! Intemporel mais avec tout le confort: literie et salle de bains parfaits. Super!

      • Advantages

        Cadre historique, ancien couvent.Petit nombre de chambres,très richement décoré(es), certains diront "kitsch". Personnel accueillant et endroit calme. Grande verrière très lumineuse menant aux chambres.Un hôtel au caractère très attachant. J'adore!

      • Disavantages

        Petite salle très intime pour le petit-déjeuner, mais qui oblige parfois à attendre. Attention, ça grimpe pour arriver à pied à ce nid douillet! Parking difficile dans la rue; mais on peut tout voir à Prague sans voiture!

      If you already know Prague and don't want to stay in the town centre (Wenceslas Square), too noisy to your taste, try this hotel in Mala Strana. Its location is quite convenient for a visit to the Castle quarter on foot. If you dislike walking (because the area is a little bit sloped), trams pass just outside the hotel.

      On the castle side of the river and next to a tree-filled park on a hill looking over the city, the Atos hotel stands in a quiet street. Its good facilities and reasonable prices make it a place to recommend on this side of the river.

      The House of Red Lion is a friendly, family-run hotel located near Mala Strana, a stone's throw from the castle and St. Vitus Cathedral. Don't expect to find yourself surrounded by the latest decorative features, because the ambiance here feels more like that of a family guest house. It is well looked after, and offers decent accommodation options for families.

      The Certovka is on the same side of the river as the castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, and admirers of Charles Bridge will also be happy here, as it can be seen from some of the hotel windows. It enjoys a very good location, offers a modest range of amenities and its rooms, which are decorated in a classic, cosy style, are small.

      Remember the name of this hotel: you will definitely want to return, at least to dine. Because even if this hotel is not the best in its class, its dinner menu is unusual (steaks of all kinds). As for the rooms, they are pleasant if you love old style; nevertheless, the hotel is well situated.

      A welcoming drink is offered upon arrival, the minibar is available for free in the rooms... At the Savoy, they know how to welcome you. And as you stay in a quiet place, far from the town centre but close to the cultural sites, you may feel as if you are in the countryside (Mala Strana park is a 5 minute walk away). Not for the nightbirds, but peaceful couples will be treated like small royalties.

      The Mandarin Oriental, one of the best establishments in the city, has the advantage of being located away from the crowds of tourists but is still close to some of the must-see sights. The setting is historical and the services luxurious, true, but this haven of peace and quiet for the more fortunate has a certain austerity that feels a bit cold.

      Located on the side of the Mala Strana, and a stone's throw from the Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, the Neruda is a pretty establishment. Here, we recommend the accommodation units that occupy the more recent building. This is a modern establishment built around a covered and furnished interior courtyard. However, one down side is that you have to climb the entire upward sloping Neruda street before you can finally set down your luggage.

      It's not only sleek good looks that make the Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague a hit - it's also the discreet service, attention to detail and central location that make it one of city's top places to stay. The very first hotel to come from the Buddha-Bar brand (following a successful global franchise) was not launched in Paris, New York or even Dubai, but Prague - where history and beauty come together to create an impossibly romantic setting. Every lovers' getaway needs the hotel to match...and we've found it in this exclusive boutique offering.

      The Ventana hotel is ideally located at the heart of the Old Town and is a charming little place providing high-quality, low-capacity accommodation. The modern and elegant decor of this uncharacteristic hotel is sure to win you over, particularly when you take into account the original facilities, which include Duplex rooms which can accommodate up to 4 people and afford beautiful views across the rooftops of the city. If we had to find fault, it would be that the minimalist decor in the guest rooms leaves them rather characterless.
