friendly staff, nice place adjacent to the river, near historic centre, good breakfast. no air-condition,house could benefit from a renovation.
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.
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.
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.
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!
position, parking comments about breakfast
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.
The staff is very nice. The hotel is in a quiet place but very near to the centre of the city.
convenience of parking, close to the center, good breakfast not accept for payment card payment systems
Very quiet No restaurant on site and very hard to find by car.
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 hotel is located in the city center
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.
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.
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
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
Good central location
Room size was brilliant
Clean, friendly, good value for money. Somewhat tricky to get there by car (one way streets in the centre)
Very pleasant hotel
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.
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.
The location was excellent for access as you are actually in the old town. Large room (Upgraded). Staff was friendly, but English was limited.
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
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).
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
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.
Location Beds too hard and narrow. Smoking permitted in the restaurant.
Excellent location, decor & service, attention to details Nothing
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.
Very clean and proper room, friendly staff.
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...
Garage on site and good Beer (Pilsner Urquell) on tap Food poor and decor could be more up to date
Location hotel, was in citycentre and near very nice Castle. Recpetion had good communication skills, German and Englisch. Due to renovation of the restaurant we had our breakfast in the hotel next door. They had a conference, so was a bit messy. But therefor the hotel had a good price during our stay.
Location - just few minutes from castle. Breakfast was disaster. We came at 10:15 and there was nothing - no clean table, no plates, no food. We were not alone that time so after claim they started to clean and serve again. Explanation - new waiter.
Friendly staff, relaxing spa experience, and in a located right underneath the castle. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this 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.
Near to the center The staff was really unfriendly, there was a strange smallow in the room
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.
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.
The interiror of the room, the surroundings, bread for breakfast :-)
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.
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.
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 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
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.
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.
Good value for money, nice room, attentive staff both at receiption and at breakfast.
Pleasant, comfortable room with full bathtub and city view. Wifi was advertised but not available.
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
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.
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
Excellent value for money. Airconditioned rooms and we had escellent views as well. Slow elevatros (stayed at 14th floor).
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
the courtesy of the staff
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
nice hotel in a beautiful surrounding, not far away from Ceske Budejovice Internet free of charge but a bit slow
It appears that the hotel has been recently reconstructed, and it is very nicely done. The rooms are very pleasant - large and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast that is included was excellent. The hotel does not have air-conditioning, and so the windows must be open at night in hot weather. Since the rooms look out onto the square, the noise from the restaurant across the street and from people walking in the street can be very disturbing.
Quiet, beautiful hotel and surroundings
wonderful place near Hluboka Castle, friendly restaurant staff photos better than reality
Location of the hotel is very nice. The enterier of the hotel room is expecially luxury and harmonize to the ancestral castle.
Location of the hotel is very nice it was perfect and wonderful. The room was beautiful, large and clean (2 basins!).The enterier of the hotel room are luxury and harmonize to the ancestral castle. The breakfast was very good. Wonderful
no functioning internet
Beautiful place, it almost looked as it was a part of the castle. Very friendly staff. I loved the saloon with the fire place, leather armchairs and pool. Very cosy. The room was very nice with great view of the Vltava river. Booked double room but we had to single beds next to each other.
Beautiful hotel, nice room, polite and very helpfull staff Antique bathroom situated at the castle entrance without curtains and no shower curtains too. Had to hold shower and did not have the possibility to hang it somewhere on the wall.
Nice clean rooms, very quiet. The restaurant staff was a bit slow...
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
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.
