                    Getting there.

                    The hotel location is ideal for wandering into the central shopping areas and driving out of the city to visit other great Alpine sights. Green and quiet neighborhood guarantees a relaxed and tranquil rest: the rooms overlook the beautiful Botanical Gardens set next to the hotel. The main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) is only 3 blocks away, while the central square Marienplatz is two metro stops (or about 5-mins) ride away.

                    Individual guest reviews

                    • Good view nice location, near the park and i liked everything about the charles hotel. The rate i paid was about and the interiors were modernly designed, clean. Concierge service was excellent, rooms were large and food was decent and well selected.

                      The bar in the evening was a fun place to relax after a busy day at Oktoberfest and front desk did add an extra complimentary 24 hours. Internet was not free, wireless was fast and no onboard issues at all, coffee and tea were a bit slow to come. Spa was closed.

                    • The location is great and this hotel is the best one among I have ever stayed. The staff is excellent, rooms are large and the SPA is fantastic and the breakfast is really nice.

                      A 5 minute walk from the old city itself, no free internet even in the lobby and the snacks menu at the bar is somewhat limited.

                    • Great location and staff, steps away from the train station, rooms overlook a nice park. The charles hotel is amazing, the lobby bar should be more comfortable and only a few minutes by foot from the old town. The service is super, internet should be free for guests and automatic, the sauna is very warm and large.

                      Business center isnot good for wifi u must pay 24 euro every day, i could not drive up front and grilled fish portion too small.
