“Stay away”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

The hotel is well situated in the lovely town but that's the only good thing about it. The rooms, though big, are poorly cleaned (or not at all), the personnel is unpolite, the breakfast is a joke.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2009

Nice building from the outside. The room I had (a large room just under the roof) was spacious. Not exactly stylish and felt slightly musty, but adequate. Breakfast - a choice from a menu (scrambled eggs etc.), nothing special. Staff was not very communicative, pay your bill sir and go, bye!
It was okay but the nearby Grand Hotel Matej has a better location and is generally nicer, while the pensions such as Prijemny oddych or Kachelmann probably offer better value.
