This hotel was reserved by a business colleague because all other hotels in town were booked. The pictures in their website indicated a hotel which looked ok, but this was nothing short of a big lie. All I can say is that I have travelled extensively for the past 25 years, and this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed. The worst part was the condition of the rooms...the smell was a combination of cigarette smoke and old french fries. Most everthing in the bathroom was either in poor condition or not functioning at all. For example, in the shower, there was only a nozzle, no place to mount it so that you could shampoo, no shelve for soap or no light. It was like camping. The staff was surley at best (robots have more personality) and the manager tried to convince us to spend more of our money at his wive's Thai restaurant next door. I told him I was dissatisfied with the hotel and irriated that it that it took us 10 minutes to find the hotel parking (with the directions they provided) and that maybe it would make sense to have a small sign indicating the hotel parking place. His response was that last time they had done that, it was an invitation for theives to steal the guest's autos (which had evidently occured) Well, I guess the Czech Republic is not yet quite civilized regarding crimes.

Positives (and the only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of one) very cheap - 30 euros with breakfast, clean sheets and a quite location only 10 minutes walk from town.

This would be a good hotel where someone has a very tight budget, but not for tourist or business people.

By the way, I found Brunn to be a very beautiful town, nicely rebuilt and the people I met were quite accomodating (but as friendly as in Western Europe or the US).

  • Liked — It was Cheap!!!
  • Disliked — The rooms, the outdated decor, the staff, the lack of parking, the terrible smells...
  • Tips/Secrets — Avoid this hotel like the plaque!

Hotel Amphone is a clean, well situated hotel in Brno. It's in a pretty quiet street and is near some nice parkland and 10 minutes walk from the city.

The staff is totally unwelcoming. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted with surly disinterest. If you need anything, they'll make sure you realize how painful it is for them to satisfy your request.

A kettle in the rooms wouldn't go astray.

In short this is the worst hotel I have stayed in within Europe. Hotels in Brno can be very expensive for what they deliver (near Prague prices but without any of the benefits of Prague). This cost over £50 a night for what was described as an apartment. In reality it was akin to a corridoor in the attic. If you are under 2 foot tall you may avoid banging your head on the sloped ceiling otherwise you will spend your time hunched to avoid doing so. The bathroon was a bizzare 70's design with white tiles and red grout. There were mirrors everywhere particularily above the toilet! Our room was on the 5th floor, but the lift only goes as far as the 3rd floor.Needless to say the air con didn't work and the staff were the most miserable staff I have encountered worldwide.It was so bad we checked out as soon as possible and went to Vienna and stayed for the same cost at the 5* Marriot (via Pricelne). There are much better hotels in Brno such as the International and Royal Ricc though they can be expensive. If despite this you do stay at the Amphone, don't say I didn't warn you.
