Very nice hotel located on a very pretty Plaza with lots of restaurants. The room had a coffee maker and a small refrigerator. The breakfast was very good. The Hotel has a parking garage. The Hotel was a bit difficult to get to due to construction and the pedestrian zones. We would definitely stay there again. (Beware of police. They... More

I come to Ceske Budejovice very often and always wanted to stay in GRAND HOTEL ZVON, because of the amazing reviews here and on booking. The hotel if often full, but I finally got "lucky" this week. It was Old town BB which rents cheaper rooms. The room itself was nice, big with a big bathroom, but real shock came... More

I first stayed at the Zvon in the early '90s. Back then, my wife and I dined at the open window of the Gourmet Symphony restaurant, on our first night, and looked out over the medieval square of Budejovice, bathed in the glow of a summer sunset. Magic! I was so pleased that we were able to recreate the experience... More

Spend the extra money and get the executive suite. For 170 EUR it was worth every penny!!! The suite was beautiful and comfortable. The couches were really nice to sit on after and long day of site seeing! The view from this room is stunning. The bathroom was perfection! If you are a shower person the shower was so nice... More

I have stayed in České Budějovice several times in different hotels. Grand hotel Zvon was ,by far, the best one. It has very spacious rooms with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. If you are lucky and have a front room you will have a great view over the whole historical square. The other positive issue there is the hotel restaurant.It... More

Almost no one comes to Ceske Budejovice as a tourist when they are visiting the Czech Republic. Prague and out… maybe one of the other very touristy towns like the nearby Cesky Krumlov. That is one big reason to stay in Ceske Budejovice. This hotel is right on the fantastically attractive central square. We had a triple in room 401.... More

We chose the hotel because of its excellent location, large rooms & previous Tripadvisor reviews. It is a very nice hotel, but sorely needs an upgrade. We were booked for 2 nights, but checked out after only 1. It has fantastic views of the main square and the town hall, but it's hard to enjoy when your room is 100... More

The hotel is located in the old town square a close walk to the bus and train station. The rooms are a generous size and very clean. The breakfast buffet was good but if you want something more or some variety there are good bakeries steps away. We decided to use Ceske Budejovice as a base to make day trips... More

Rooms are large, warm and well furnished, bed is very comfortable and Bathroom is large and everything was clean. The location on the city square which was very scenic and made it convenient for getting around town. Pubs, cafes and restaurants are all convenient and within walking distance, even in the snow which started on our first night there. Breakfast... More

I visited as part of a group, so was able to compare opinions of different rooms. Rooms ranged from suites to cupboards, some amazing, others rather less so. The hotel is old so has lots of different sizes and styles of rooms. People on the top floor had uncovered skylights, and several people had rooms smelling badly of smoking. All... More
