    Beautiful property, but it’s a long walk into town.

    I didn’t have a car and it was a long walk into town each day. There is a restaurant on the property, but it wasn’t open the day I arrived, so I had to walk all the way into town to eat. There is a small zoo next door with lots of big cats crammed into very small cages, which was a little distressing to have to keep walking past.

    This place is beautiful. I loved spending time wandering through the garden by the river. You can sit on the outdoor terrace to eat your delicious breakfast (included in the price). The rooms are huge and very comfortable.

    Relaxing stay in romantic property, would be better if restaurant was open

    • Stayed 2 nights

    The restaurant is closed on Mon and Tue because of insufficient number of paying guests. Although this was communicated in advance, it was still quite inconvenient that the restaurant was closed. Tip for future bookers: This hotel is a much more attractive proposition when the restaurant is open (i.e. outside the summer season only on Wed-Sun). Staff could not check me in, tried two times for 30 minutes at a time but did not succeed in making own computer system work. Staff could also not recommend a restaurant in town ("all restaurants are good") or tell which restaurants would be open on Monday. Coffee at breakfast is terrible.

    Great location, indeed quite romantically located in a river bend, a bit away from the village. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are decorated tastefully. Hotel is clean and well-kept. On-premise parking is free of charge.

    The hotel had a private function on the Sunday and we could not even get a drink at bar. We were made aware that the restaurant would not be open upon booking but still inconvenient as a long way from town.

    Great location. Old mill right on the river.

    air conditioning barely cooled room, excessive bees and mosquitoes made outside dining in beautiful setting impossible, bees and flies fought with us for our food. Meal a big disappointment, I ordered duck and got something tough and overcooked that tasted like beef. waiter said it was breast of duck, I think not . not a good sign when aquarium in lobby had 2 big dead fish floating around.

    beautiful setting, very picturesque, lovely room. Breakfast crepe freshly made was excellent.

    The only reason I would not give this place 5 star rating is the fact that the Suite we had, yet spacious and beautiful, was quiet dusty and not clean. The room was clean at first sight but the moment you look above you on the wooden pilots, under the bed or in the corner, you will find dust and spider nets which was not wiped and clean for months. And it is similar throughout the whole place. The hotel corridors, the restaurant, even the reception. Clean at first quick sight but after you look around for a bit, You notice. I found this as a big downturn otherwise excellent place. The housekeepers should be doing waaaay better job especially when the property charge the price for stay they do. i would still happily go back but would make sure that my room is clean properly before check in.

    The location of the property, the feel and looks and its surroundings are beautiful. Very helpful staff at the reception and exceptional staff at the restaurant.

Then we saw a group of people that had fresh coffee...We asked the waiter could we have fresh coffee with which she replied... the other people are directors and could have fresh coffee...I was totally shocked! Surely paying guests should get treated the same!

    It's NOT the hotel's fault but I'd like to use this opportunity to raise your attention: whole Karlstejn is a NO PARKING ZONE. There is a central parking, but we didn't find any sign in English or German. But if you park at the castle, in the carpark which is reserved for marriages (indicated only in Czech) you will be fined by the police! Perhaps the hotel could also give some information and addvise to leave the car at the hotel...

    Wonderful hotel, we just loved it! Romantic rooms for "just married" or for those who feel "just married". Nice restaurant for dinner, and fascinating rich breakfast

    The renovated mill has all the characteristics of a luxury accommodation - great bathroom and bed. The restaurant provides excellent food until 10 pm - bear in mind if you are arriving late. The hotel is in a magical location in the mountains, close to the Karlstejn castle. We will never forget the starlit sky and the water sound from the river.

    The fan in the bathroom didn't work. It was really smelly. There was constant train traffic going back and forth in the back of the hotel all night long. Couldn't get a good night sleep. The towel heater stopped working, leaving wet towels hanging there. The sauna and Jacuzzi were charged extra payment per hour. Everything extra in the hotel, apart from lodging cost additional money.

    The breakfast was great

    Location is bit away from the main road. Wellness facilities, a reason why we chose this hotel, could be used only at prohibitive high charges (one hour sauna for another 90 % of hotel price). We therefore chose to not use them. Bathroom had no light switch but only a motion detector - meaning that in the middle of a shower light went off in the bathroom and I had to get out the shower in the dark to wave in front of the motion detector for switching the light on. A nice but for local standards slightly overpriced hotel.

    As there were only 3 rooms occupied during our stay, the breakfast had been prepared on the tables instead of a breakfast buffet. Typical Czech (rather rustical) dishes, with sausages and local bread and boiled eggs in addition to a make-order egg dish. Friendly and attentive staff for breakfast.

    Really nothing.

    We stayed in this hotel for the New Years Eve and I must say that this is a really special place. This hotel is a kind of separated from the main part of Kalstejn. It is located on the cost of the river, and there is a dedicated road leading to this hotel. I would recommend to come to this hotel with a car cause it might be a bit problematic to move around if you come there w/o one. This hotel has a large territory and has even its own zoo with two camels, many donkeys, goats, and sheeps. Therefore this hotel is also perfect for families with children who will definitely like the cute donkeys. Inside interior of the hotel is beautiful and the overall atmosphere is truly relaxing and romantic. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a really wonderful place and we will definitely stay here again when we come to Karlstejn next time.

    the restaurant staff were very unexperienced and kept making mistakes with orders. The service was ridiculously slow (more than 1h 40 min before we got our food, some of which was missing/wrong). eventually, they did acknowledge their mistakes and took something off the bill. The setting is spectacular and the food good, so either order early (long before you actually want to eat) or just go for drinks ( these too take a while to arrive, though the sights are so beautiful, it makes for a pleasant wait..).
