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
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.
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.
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.
Garage on site and good Beer (Pilsner Urquell) on tap Food poor and decor could be more up to date
Location Beds too hard and narrow. Smoking permitted in the restaurant.
Visited Ceske Krumlov, Hluboka castle and rafted down Vltava rive
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...
Very clean and proper room, friendly staff.
Quite difficult to find parking close the Hotel
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

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!
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.
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.
Nice clean rooms, very quiet. The restaurant staff was a bit slow...
Perfect facilities, very good location with nice river view. Newly decorated old time style building. The breakfast was quite poor.
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.
Close to the city center. Huge beds in a spacious room. Quite a new building. Soup at breakfast.
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
Good value for money, nice room, attentive staff both at receiption and at breakfast.
Nice rooms, good value. It's not quite 4 star hotel... But on the other hand it doesn't have a 4 star price. It looks like it was 4 stars in the 90'S.
Despite my bad impression of the small rooms, i was able to sleep very well and the view to the city was just beautiful. I would have appreciated if i could have opened my window, and the included breakfast was not what i would expect, they need a bit more variety on the tables.
not a 4 star hotel
Only 10 min walk to main square, reasonable level of facilities, aircon lacking in rooms (see below) during hot weather. Breakfast spread was pretty good. No aircon though staff opened the windows at our request, a fan would still have been useful. Front desk person who dealt with our check out would have been perfect kgb (or Czech equiv) interrogator. Despite these issues was still pleasant stay even in hot weather
Pleasant, comfortable room with full bathtub and city view. Wifi was advertised but not available.
Hotel was very central and the staff were very helpful, we had booked for one night, but stayed for two after. Breakfast was very good N/A
Great breakfast, fantastic localization, nice staff speaks English very well, huge parking lot, nice bar in a lobby and a restaurant with normal prices no place to hang a towel in bathroom, too small tv, no AC
the courtesy of the staff
Excellent value for money. Airconditioned rooms and we had escellent views as well. Slow elevatros (stayed at 14th floor).
nice atomasphere.staff was nice. location is very good.
Very good location. The beer restaurant served Budweiser beer and good deal.
Size and quality of the room.
Nice rooms and warm staffs. Very helpful
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.
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.
Good loocation, and very good price - I book a suite for 60 EURO Breakfast could be better
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.
Wonderful rooms, very big and well heated.Friendly staff and a fantastic location just off the main square. The rooms and the breakfast.
- close to city center - friendly staff - good value for money - parking space far from the hotel, on public street, security? - small elevator
quietness and cleanliness No service/facilities,even a kettle or drinking water is not available
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 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.
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 ...
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.
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 :)
great staff, I am very grateful for her help for all the information i need
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
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.
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 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.
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
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
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.
Good central location
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.
location in the middle of the center It is a pretty basic hotel
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.
Wonderful Location. Unique Identity. No
The interiror of the room, the surroundings, bread for breakfast :-)
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.
Near to the center The staff was really unfriendly, there was a strange smallow in the room
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.
Good location near the City Centre Internet although advertised on the web was not working.
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.
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 is nice and spacious. I dont recommend this hotel for people who have big luggages as the hotel doesnt have elevator and the stair is steep and narrow.
Room size was brilliant
The hotel had a very spacious room. The staff was very friendly. Another plus point, is that it really is in the middle of the old city.
Clean, friendly, good value for money. Somewhat tricky to get there by car (one way streets in the centre)
The location was excellent for access as you are actually in the old town. Large room (Upgraded). Staff was friendly, but English was limited.
Very pleasant hotel
We liked the clean, spacious en suite room and that the hotel is in easy walking distance of the historic old town. There was not much choice and variety at he buffet breakfast.
Comfortable, good staff, quite and clean. I enjoied me trip.
Location (quite place at the end of the walking area) and the hotel itself (clean and modern) were very good. Stairs (cc. 20) to the room, but it was acceptable (compensated by location and facilities).
L'hotel è centrale e le stanze pulite, central position room clean Dover sempre suonare il campanello per entrare alla reception, e il fatto che ci sia una scala ripida per andare alle camere e non ci sia ascensore, colazione povera non internazionale. Ring the bell for enter in the reception, there isn't elevetor and the rooms stairs is ripid the breakfast is poor
