A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the charming town of Český Krumlov boasts many fine 3-star hotels, but few as characterful and quaint as the Hotel-Restaurant Švamberský Dům. Located in Český Krumlov's historic center, the hotel is within walking distance of all of the town's historic heritage sites, including 300 protected buildings, one of the largest castle's in the Czech Republic and a 17th-century theater. The Hotel-Restaurant Švamberský Dům is located in an historic building with a medieval façade, the ground floor being home to the restaurant and the upper floors featuring 6 rooms that provide comfortable and great value-for-money accommodation in Český Krumlov all year round. There are an endless variety of ways you can immerse yourself in the Czech history and culture here, as there are 7 museums, 5 galleries and beer tasting available in the local brewery. You could also time your visit to coincide with one of Český Krumlov's many music, theater and arts festivals that take place annually. The highlight of this Český Krumlov hotel, however, is beyond a shadow of a doubt its superb restaurant. Many Czech specialties are on the menu, including game, poultry and red meat dishes, some of which are cooked on the open fire, right in front of you eyes. Vegetarian dishes, salads, and lighter meals are also served as well as a delicious selection of desserts. From the drink's menu, you should certainly try the Budvar Beer, a Czech national favorite, as well as the locally-brewed Eggenberg Beer. Free wireless Internet is available on site.
Very good location, 2 minutes away from the rail station, large and beautiful room, good price.
centre of town; helpful and efficient staff; good sized rooms; excellent bathroom
distance to parking area rather far if you have some luggage
It is right off the town square and very convenient to everything. The breakfast was also very good. If you are into history, the hotel is one of the few remaining examples of original Gothic architecture in this lovely medieval town.
We had a room looking onto the street (which was very quaint) but unfortunately also had two noisy bars. It did not present much of a problem for us because it was cool enough to close the double windows which (amazingly) cut out all of the noise. If it had been hot we might have had to choose between noise and comfort. If you are traveling in the summer you might want to request rooms facing the rear courtyard.
Great location, romantic house with a true original character. Great food, too.
When you walk at the stirs the light whent out before you reach the top!!
