“Nice place, great location, but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

My husband and I stayed here for one night on a car trip from Prague through Moravia to Budapest. The Royal Ricc is a smallish hotel in a very nice section of Brno. The hotel staff were all very nice and accomodating and spoke good English. The room was clean and well equipped, although the decor was a bit over the top for our taste. It reminded me of what I imagine a 19th century brothel looked like..but it did have a flat screen TV. The breakfast buffet was wonderful - eggs, meats, every cheese imaginable, cakes - all beautifully presented. My only complaint was the price...about $140 plus another $25 to park. That would be OK in Prague...but in Brno we would have expected something closer to $100 with parking possibly included.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

Hotel calls itself romantic and that is how it looks inside.. beautiful iron gate, many stained glass windows and paintings, nice furniture. Our room had one of those plus decorating celieng, it almost felt like we're in the castle. Room was big enough, very clean, beds-2 single joined with comfortable mattresses. The only problem we had was the air con. We couldn't make it work and there was no manual with it. Had to call the reception for help. Room was already very warm when we were in Brno at the end of March so air con was needed.
Breakfast was great. So much to choose from - warm and cold food. And stuff is very nice too, nothing is a problem and they're very laid back about your check out. Only problem which was already mentioned in other review and I have to agree with, is the smoky-smelly reception and sitting area downstairs. Unfortuanely the smoke band didn't get to Czech republic and people smoke everywhere appart from some non smoking restaurant.
Over all very nice hotel in very good location close to sight seeings, tram stop and restaurants.

This hotel was beautiful and very “authentic” feeling. Comfortable room, bathroom, and beds. Staff at the front desk was just ok. Excellent location. I would prefer this location to staying closer the main square. Breakfast was great too; tons of fresh fruits, salads, meats, cheese, bread, etc. Staff in the breakfast room were all excellent. Very happy with this hotel and would stay again. Walking distance to all tourist sites. Short (5 minute?) walk to the main train station.

Only able to stay one night because of other circumstances but we were thrilled with the unusual decor and comfort . All the staff we meet were very helpful and pleasant. It was located in the old centre of Brno and although our room overlooked the square it was very quiet at night.

Hotel is the heart of Brno, which is a pretty city. Walk out of the Hotel straight into shopping/ bars etc. Your car is parked for you, please note if using satnav it tells you it is a pedestrian street, it is! But park outside and the staff will bring your car when you need it. There is a charge for parking but worth it. We loved the room, beautiful decoration, ornate and very unusual, it had aircon too. Free WiFi and a lovely breakfast .

We stayed in this lovely cozy hotel when visiting relatives in Brno. It was a charming place, with many period features. Brno doen't have any chain/luxury hotels but this was a nice and economic option. No complains.
