The hotel is on the centre square, ideal for us as it was Christmas and there was a market, our room overlooked the square which was lovely. The room was almost a suite. Good value for money. The breakfast was limited but acceptable. We had a very nice meal in the downstairs restaurant but was very smokey. The two things... More

We spent one night here with some friends. The room was big comfortable and clean. The breakfast delicious. The staff very friendly and helpful. After checking out we could leave the car in the parking place with our luggages for a few hours without a problem. The restaurant at the ground floor had a very nice atmosphere and delicious food,... More

We stayed at Grand Hotel Zvon for one night. We wished we had a less hectic schedule and more time because our experience was excellent. Despite arriving quite late in the evening and the reception being crowded with a tour group, the receptionist on duty was smiley, fast and efficient. We got a suite with an incredible view of the...

Right on the main square and surround by buildings of beauty and character just entering this hotel is a pleasure, well appointed and taking you back to a more elegant age you know you are going to love it even before you reach reception to check in. \comfortable and well furnished rooms great décor and friendly staff, choice of restaurants...

The Hotel was olde world and traditional, combined with mod cons and luxury. It overlooks the beautiful Town Square and has comfortable bedrooms with a couple of in-house restaurants serving good and homely Czech food. Convenient to central Ceske Budejovice, the bus depot and train station. Buffet style breakfast could have had more choice but adequate. Overall, a pleasant and... More

It is grand and its glory is not faded. A bit of a step back in time but worth it. Lots of staff. Excellent breakfast. Great view of the old square from our window. The room was large and well appointed.

That was apparently a part of Grand Hotel Zvon with smaller rooms and a view to the opposite building that does not correspond with the Grand Hotel format. But when we booked it on the website there wasn't mentioned that it's Grand Hotel Zvon, it was the name I put in the title of this review, so it was absolutely... More

We spent two nights at this hotel on a getaway weekend to South Bohemia. The hotel is a bit odd. It has a long entrance way that eventually leads to the cavernous lobby. To park the car, we had to drive around the block and the put the car in an elevator that took us up to the roof! (8... More

Had very high expectations, especially having booked a junior suite. Breakfast is perfectly fine, I think some people in the comments are expecting the same as you would get in a 300 room Holiday Inn. There’s fruit, cereal, egg/bacon, cooked meats, cakes, yoghurt, salad – not a big range of each but what more do you want. Room was overlooking... More

We spend here only one night and it was great. Old place with old country charm. Clean, inexpensive, great service, good breakfast. Town is charming and can be covered in couple of hours. Try Zlotoi Pivovar? Around the corner. Most of the restaurants are shockingly inexpensive by US standards
