Beautifully located in the center on an old square. Hotel Zvon is a beautiful old building itself with a certain cozy and classy ambiance. Closely located to shops, train station and the bus station and of course the historical center. Zvon has a good restaurant and bar but is surrounded by many very good restaurants on the square. Staff is... More

As so many reviewers have stated, the location of this hotel is just marvelous, overlooking the grand Ottokar II square (it was hard to stop taking pictures from our window). We had a beautiful room, very comfortable, and the staff at check-in and throughout our stay was friendly and helpful. It is clear from my experience and that of other... More

We got a very large room that easy fit two rollaway beds in just one part of it. Breakfast was good. With fresh fruits and vegetables meat and 4 types of eggs. Parking was convenient enough with an elevator for the car that the kids really enjoyed.

The hotel is right on the main square, which makes it perfectly placed to see and walk to everything. Quality of food for breakfast and in the restaurant was very good, and breakfast staff kept tables clean at all times. Reception staff were very helpful, even posting on to me chargers I left behind in my room. The rooms were... More

This grande dame of hotels is nearly 500 years old and perfectly located on the main square in Budweis. The rooms are fully equipped and the beds comfortable. Spotlessly clean and with a solid Bauhaus decor, our only complaints related to the TV, which was limited to a volume level requiring you to stand next to it to hear the... More

Nicely old-fashioned, luxurious, quiet, and very clean hotel at a perfect location. The view from the rooms overlooking the main square is magnificent, and I would be happy to return here. Just two remarks about how this hotel could be even better: We had slight troubles operating the lift with our guest cards - although the mechanism of when to... More

We arrived here by motorbike during a European tour, we found the hotel to be situated in a beautiful location with a view over the main square. The room itself was spacious and spotlessly clean. the mini bar was well stocked and very affordable, a welcome find after arriving in 36 degree heat. The bar on the ground floor was... More

Very traditional hotel on the Budweis main square, with a lot of modern features: Your car will be delivered by the lift to the roof parking ... but the only way to go to the front desk in the basement or to your room is by the same lift. Room by room is other - the best ones are with... More

Well situated right at the city square, be sure to get a room overlooking it. We stayed in a junior suite, room 502, with great views, especially at night. Private parking and free minibar is included in the rate for the suites. Good value for money, although the minibar isn´t exactly well stocked. Very clean and wellkept room with a... More

Hotel has a very good location. Comfortable room had a main square view. No problem with a noise. In front of the main entrance is the biggest fountain in Czech republic - Samson fountain. Hope to come back soon.
