The 3 hour bus journey to Cesky Krumlov from Prague makes you wonder why you decided to go check this place out but trust me, it’s worth it. Cesky Krumlov is picturesque and idyllic but only worth a one day trip, there’s not too much to see.
Once we arrived in the town, it’s a short walk from the bus station to go then you are onto the main strip or street, or whatever you want to call it. Hotel Arcadie is a bit further down from the start but you can’t miss the sign on front of the building.
The receptionist wasn’t there when we arrived and we were told we would have to wait till she was back – this was a bit annoying to begin with as we didn’t know how long this would be but she was only 2 minutes. When she arrived, she was so helpful. It helped that we had a friend from the Czech Republic with us so she did all the talking – we Scottish guys just carried the luggage. Check in was quick and easy and off we went to our room.
The room was big, bright and all set up for us immediately. We had a family room so there were two beds pushed together like a double then another single bed in the corner (same size etc). I don’t know what it is about Czech Rep., but they have the strangest pillows ever - BIG square things that feel like they are full of bean bag filling. Nevermind, once you’ve had a few cocktails at Apoteka you don’t mind them.
Breakfast was good. They were offering continental; baguettes, ham, cheese, jam, other meats, cereals, yoghurts, toast, juices, coffee and tea etc… same as every other continental. We had the place to ourselves so nothing was rushed. Check out was at 11am, nice & quick again then we had the long bus journey back to Prague. Overall, great hotel, clean & tidy, SUPERB location, great value – would definitely go back!! Thanks Arcadie.
