We were very early at the hotel and despite this we got the most lovely welcome and told there was a room available. Suffice to say the room was palatial, had everything we needed and the most beautiful views overlooking the historic courtyard. The hotel itself is Grand and the dining hall is wonderfully decorated laid out. Given that it's previous history relates to being a monastery then a Military Hospital you would think that it is very basic, however the way the building is decorated and laid out makes it a lovely place to stay. We cannot recommend it enough. (04/2017)



"It was probably my 12th time in Karel V and I must say over the years the place has only improved. This time I stayed in the classic wing, for the first time and it was totally worth the upgrade, the room was big, well decorated and had a lovely view of the courtyard. the service was fantastic as always. The location is more than perfect and my only comment is that the breakfast stayed expensive but the choices got a bit less. But overall wonderful stay once again and I hope to be back." (04/2017)



"Excellent location in historical building. Beautiful inner garden. Nice bistro with exquisite food and wine for fair price. Very friendly staff. Fine sauna with indoor pool." 12/2016
