Reviewed by Editors

The Charles hotel is set in a 19th-century building on a cobblestone street in the heart of Malá Strana. The 31-room Charles is not exactly a cheapo, but tasteful lodgings down the hill from the castle don't come for much less.

Quick read

Pros: Great Malá Strana location. Historic building. Beautiful baroque furnishings.
Cons: Prices are often well out of Cheapo range.

The hotel

Rooms are decorated in baroque style with antique furniture and a palette of regal colors. Rugs cover wood floors, and high ceilings feature exposed wood beams. There are pictures of old Prague on the walls, though you could just look out any of the windows to catch a glimpse of the old days. The Charles' rooms have private bathrooms with toilets, showers, and the occasional tub.

Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. Breakfast is served at the restaurant next door until 10 AM. The jazz bar next door has live music and serves international cuisine. The Church of St. Joseph sits on the same block, and Malostranske Namesti is around the corner.
