Good quiet and pretty location near the botanical gardens and near the main station. Not many restaurants nearby that we could find. The food in the hotel is good but expensive. Excellent room with good quality breakfast included. Only problem with the room was that there were no tea or coffee making facilities and we spent over £100 on room...

The hotel was excellent in every way. The room was fantastic-plenty of space and nice city views. The service of the staff-both in the hotel and restaurant- and helpfulness of the concierges, Klaus and Max, both pre and post arrival, made our trip even more enjoyable. If you don't mind a short walk, this hotel is perfectly located. There is...

Spent two nights here and was able to take advantage of the wonderful spa facilities. Wonderful pool, sauna, and professional, relaxing massage services on offer. Large room, very comfortable; large, luxurious bathroom with both tub and walk-in shower, heated floors. Despite overlooking a busy street, the room was absolutely quiet due to the heavy-duty windows. The hotel is a short...

We only stayed one night in The Charles Hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable. We were within walking distance of great shopping. We would have liked to stay longer. We heard that the breakfast is wonderful but our flight left too early so we did not get to enjoy it. If we go to Munich we will stay there...

We have felt really comfortable during our stay. The welcome was warm and authentic, food and drinks in the bar were really good, the room was clean, the room size was big enough and the bathroom was well organized. All in all the services and the given support was a very good one till the end of our stay.

This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in. The rooms are large and comfortable. The dining is fantastic. I had dinner at Sophia's one night and ordered room service for breakfast each day. The spa is relaxing, clean, stylishly detailed and incredibly convenient. I used the pool and showers everyday during my stay. The location is...
