Visited Ceske Krumlov, Hluboka castle and rafted down Vltava rive
Location Rating should be 3 star and not 4 stara as its package tour orientated. Decor is terrible. Bathrooms although recently renovated its impossible to have a decent shower without water going all over the floor due to shower head location.
The Grand Hotel Zvom is a very classy hotel located on the square in Ceske Budejovice. The square is perhaps one of the main shopping areas of the city and contains lots of nice shops and a couple of restaurants. The hotel room was very nice, including a tub in the bathroom. Beds and pillows were comfortable as well. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast was included in the rate we paid, and it was good. We chose the hotel because some of the reviews indicated its close proximity to the train station. I guess it depends on how one defines “close.” It was between ½ to ¾ of a mile, so one might give some consideration to that. There appeared to be one or two taxis at the train station that could be useful. Associated with the hotel are one or two restaurants, including one that features another local beer, not Budvar which Ceske Budejovice is famous for. Naturally, we tried both of them. If one is a beer lover, one will not be disappointed by either of the beers featured. Nothing
Excellent location, decor & service, attention to details Nothing
Location Beds too hard and narrow. Smoking permitted in the restaurant.
Nice renovated room, quiet, breakfast ok Parking facilities, too expensive, only 1 lift, there was a group of tourist and I waited the lift 15 minutes...
Garage on site and good Beer (Pilsner Urquell) on tap Food poor and decor could be more up to date
Cleanliness and comfort of beds 1- Staff poor service (not friendly nor welcoming at the reception) unlike staff on breakfast who were friendly and welcoming. 2- The site gave us a price of 13 euro per day for hotel park and the hotel gave us a price of 15 euro per day. 3- poor breakfast.
Very clean and proper room, friendly staff.
Facilities and staff excellent. Magnificent location. Food in Restaurant and Bier Stube excellent. The best restauranrt was outstanding food at budget prices.. Breakfasts are a weakness. Plenty of choice but quality not the best. Cold plates and frequently cold and congealed food. Staff service at breakfast did not match the other restaurants' service. Garaging a bit expensive.
Quite difficult to find parking close the Hotel
Brilliant apartment - brand new and in great location in the city centre. It was actually nicer than in the pictures. The staff didn't speak a word English or German, what made it hard to communicate with them. They were nice though.
The room was very clean and comfortable, we stayed in one of their self contained apartments. regretted not staying another night. The staff was friendly and helped us with our luggage. The breakfast the next morning was also very good, Definitely recommend to others nothing
Modern apartment with excellent facilities including washing machine. Clean and comfortable. Located in city centre. Excellent breakfast served in cafe below, good value for 300 Kr. Staff most helpful and speak some english. Overall highly recommended and excellent value for money.
The service was excellent, the hotel superb - well beyond expectations and among the best we have seen. Rooms are big and immaculate, with all you need and more. If there are rooms at the Residence, i recommend you stay!

the hotel is very nice and well equiped with everything. breakfast is good, dont need any much improvement. the restaurant is very very good and not expensive at all. the fire alarm went off at 6.30 in the morning, and than they discover it was a system malfunction.
Perfect facilities, very good location with nice river view. Newly decorated old time style building. The breakfast was quite poor.
Nice clean rooms, very quiet. The restaurant staff was a bit slow...
Very nice location. There is also a nice swimming pool ( outdoor and Indoor) very clsoe by There was no availability of beds for children only cots
Close to the city center. Huge beds in a spacious room. Quite a new building. Soup at breakfast.
nice atomasphere.staff was nice. location is very good.
The hotel is perfectly located just off the main square in the centre and has large rooms for the cost with full bathrooms (rather than just a shower). Unfortunately although they remembered I reserved a room they didn't remember I had also reserved a parking space in their garage and so only suggested on-street parking some distance away which I could not pre-pay for and therefore had to get up early & move my car - Not happy!! In addition their restaurant was closed all weekend for a private booking (not mentioned during reservation) and their cellar bar was fully booked all night so I had to find an alternative at 8pm on a Friday night - the choices were limited!! Reccomendation is that you telephone ahead if planning on eating at the hotel and also make sure they've reserved your parking space. Alternatively come by bicycle and bring your own food.
Very good location. The beer restaurant served Budweiser beer and good deal.
Wonderful rooms, very big and well heated.Friendly staff and a fantastic location just off the main square. The rooms and the breakfast.
Good loocation, and very good price - I book a suite for 60 EURO Breakfast could be better
very nice hotel large room, free wifi, few steps from town square.good looking restaurant-sorry that i didn't have time to try lunch or dinner.
Nice rooms and warm staffs. Very helpful
Size and quality of the room.
good for staying overnight before or after a visit to Cesky Krumlov, and for the original budweiser in the beer hall. not much else in the town. parking is behind the hotel on the other side of the road. if you miss it, it's a long long way to go to find a place to turn back because of all the one-ways.
- close to city center - friendly staff - good value for money - parking space far from the hotel, on public street, security? - small elevator
The location of this hgotel is brilliant - close to train and bus terminals and right in the city centre. Breakfasts were very enjoyable. The receptionists on the desk spoke fluent English and offered several suggestions for dinner.
quietness and cleanliness No service/facilities,even a kettle or drinking water is not available
the receptionist was nice and helpful. the room was huge. was well worth the money the water temperature in the shower was interesting but not very controllable.
Our room was small, with broken toilet seat in the bathroom Requested an other room, larger with two windows. There was a night stand with a lamp with a burned out light bulb on one side of a large bed. only. The room was lit by one 25 watts light bulb in the 3 light chandelier. We went to the reception , they gave us 3 light bulbs we had to replace ourselves. There was construction work done on the first floor, it caused a strong gas smell . The restaurant was closed .The person at the reception desk was too busy playing chess with some friends to pay much attention to the guests.
The hotel is just round the corner from the main square of the city, great position! I liked the restaurant and friendly staff. I ordered single room and got twin room with a crack in the wall. Jus a small one :)
Matress was excellant. Nice location, price and parking garage was very spacious. Didn't particular care for the hotel pillows. Breakfast should have included some fruits. Be nice to have a CNN as a TV channel.
They made a mistake with our reservation and booked for us another room in a better hotel, very near to Penzion Restaurant Centrum. They were very kind
great staff, I am very grateful for her help for all the information i need
Excellent location, free WI-fi. Badly decorated, old and damaged furniture in rooms, breakfast so, so... Extremely noisy on the street right below the window ...
The room had a mini-bar with five items. The reception stafff were able to change the room to get away from the humming [substation?] noise coming from next door.... Breakfast was provided in the public area of the co-joined arcade. This arcade was closed in the early evening, meaning a long "round the houses" walk to the hotel entrance when arriving. The exit [smoke/ fire?]doors from each [bedroom] floor to the lift/staircase were wedged open with carefully crafted wooden blocks.
Underground parking. The hotel is not located on the main square as pictures and the description suggests, but on a back street in seventies not descriptive building that warrents an upgrade of the interior. Fire exits were blocked. Breakfast in the shopping mall downstairs. Not very comfortable.
Air conditioning would be nice. temp was over 30 degrees.
Excellent centre for visiting the town and other places. Very good breakfast. Large room with comfortable bed and seating area, large bathroom with bath and shower Difficulty with getting from hotel to bus station. Taxi service not offered and if there are local buses staff need to have the information. Tea & coffee making facilities in the room would have been appreciated. We only realised on the last day that there was a free coffee machine in reception - it was not pointed out on arrival
The hotel is located in the city center
Good central location
Excellent location in the middle of an old market square. Helpful staff, one of the best continental breakfasts we've had. Spacious, modern, comfortable and what's the most important - truly clean rooms.
Nice location, at the main square. A step far from every interesting place in the city and every facilities place (like shops, exchange office, pubs, ...) Part of the staff doesn't know well English, but it hasn't been a big problem
Underground parking in town center NOT a 4**** hotel. This is more a 2**, maximally a 3*** hotel. Unexperimented and unprofessional personnel. Noisy rooms, people could be heard from corridor and nearby rooms. Poor breakfast. Located in a shopping mall. No restaurant. Breakfast managed by an external company. Overall, NOT the experience you would expect from a four stars hotel.
The triple room was large and comfortable, good breakfast
room looks old but for short stay it was ok. breakfast was ok, only there was no vegetables.
There are maybe better hotels in Ceske Budejovice but there are defnitely worse ones as well. Good balance price/quality.
Clean, comfortable, quiet room with terrace (although the weather was too cold to use it). Very close to main square. Secure parking is 50m away but requires a member of staff to leave the reception to open the barrier - we had to wait 10 minutes for someone to arrive.The restaurant looks great, as does the menu, but we were always the only customers, therefore there was no atmosphere. TAnd in spite of that he vegetables were not freshly cooked, just reheated.
Wonderful Location. Unique Identity. No
The room was new and very clean. It is as close to the main tourist venues as it can get. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and spoke excellent english and german. Enclosed parking spots nearby free of charge. The room heating was turned off, and hours after being turned on the room was still very cold. Despite having asked for a double room, we had two single beds put together, which is very uncomfortable.
Near to the center The staff was really unfriendly, there was a strange smallow in the room
location in the middle of the center It is a pretty basic hotel
Good location near the City Centre Internet although advertised on the web was not working.
Confortibility, staff didn't disturb us, We could have dinner and breakfest in it. We could stay there till xmas-day though the Hotel was already closed than. The street-noice disturbed us a little bit - but it was on our sensibility
The room was extremely small. The room for 3 persons looked like a double-bed room with an additional bed. We couldn't even place any one piece of our luggage flat on the floor to pack and unpack. When one person move around, the others had to stay in their bed. We paid by Euro and the small change was in Czech crowns, the hotel staff offered a rate much lower exchange rate for the change (other hotels used 1 Euro=CZK 25 or above but this hotel used 1 Euro=CZK 22. The change involved a very small sum of money but it made us feel that the hotel staff was not honest enough.
The location is very good - close to the city centre. We stayed on Friday and Sat. Friday was pretty noisy because the restaraunt opened til late and when people left they made noises. Sat was better.
Excellent riverside location, close to town centre. Secure free parking in adjacent lot. Patio bar plus indoor and conservatory restaurants. Dinner was delicious and of gourmet quality. Service attentive but relaxed. Hotel was pretty, nicely presented and very clean. Our three-bedded room proved to be exceedingly small, with virtually no floor space between beds.
The interiror of the room, the surroundings, bread for breakfast :-)
position, parking comments about breakfast
friendly staff, nice place adjacent to the river, near historic centre, good breakfast. no air-condition,house could benefit from a renovation.
convenience of parking, close to the center, good breakfast not accept for payment card payment systems
Location is great, right off main road & can easily walk into the town center, no need for car or public transportation. Lovely bike/walking path right next to hotel. Free parking, adequate breakfast. Room was small but comfortable, newly renovated with new furnishings/bathroom. Felt completely safe walking back at night. Warning: lots of stairs! We were on the top floor, 4 flights up. Had an overnight bag so could keep luggage in car trunk.
The hotel was neat and tidy and in a good location. The breakfasts were good. Closing of gates after 10pm - an arrangement should be made with guests. The satellite TV was not working and all these facilities should be checked prior to arrival.
non-smoking hotel, no smoking inside. clean, and comfort the hotel owner did not speak English. 3rd floor without lift. and no reception after our check-in and so we can not get any help after that.
The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The breafast was excellent. It was a short walk through a park to the old town of Budweis. The hotel is on a busy street that is loud for the rooms on the street side, when the windows are open. They have sound proof windows, so it is quiet when the windows are closed. Ideal are the rooms on the courtyard side.
Hotel location, condition (newly renovated) and cleanliness & comfort of our new room. Owners were very friendly & accommodating. Breakfast was very good and in a very comfortable room. All was great!
The staff is very nice. The hotel is in a quiet place but very near to the centre of the city.
Very quiet No restaurant on site and very hard to find by car.
I had to leave early before breakfast starts (7am) but the staff gave me a snack bag to take away with me. I missed the restaurant but I was late arriving (late trains) so unfair to blame the hotel.
The staff were very friendly, the hotel was well placed for the city centre and very good value for money. The room was very clean. Not the easiest of hotels to find and the decor was rather dated but these are minor points and should not stop anyone from stopping at the hotel.
Everything are neat and clean, very simple rooms and facilities yet can't expect much in this suburban area. The staff are extremely friendly. The hotel location is perfect if you planning for sightseeing @ the town. Breakfast is a surprise as we didn't expect much. Since my stay at this hotel is mainly to faciliate my day trip to cesky krumlov - therefore was picking this hotel while expecting that close to train station. Yet when first arrived, we walked over 15 to 20mins before figuring out the exact location. By foot, the location is quite far from station. Yet it is close to the old town though. Also, it would be great if there can be a fridge in the room. Small ones will work.
the hotel is quiet and convenient to get to railway station and own town. there was no elevator which caused some problem for our carrying heavy luggages.
Value for Money
We liked the fact we could get a room that would sleep four. That is hard to find in Europe.
For traveling by car, hotel is good situated, also for a visit to the citycenter. There is hotel parking and the rooms are quiet, bathrooms clean. Ratio price quality is not so high.
Hotel staff are very nice and helpful.
The ambience and the arrangement The condition of the room only was a bit not ok
Warm clean and comfortable. Helpful and friendly staff. The day I arrived the restaurant was not avaialble for dinner - but I was directed to an excellent alternative in the city centre a short walk away.
