The romantic in me loves this hotel although every time I stay it is alone on business. This hotel in the Czech countryside has much to endear it to travellers and although there are some improvement areas I keep on returning.
i). Amazing building with a 1930's charm and style.
ii). Double rooms are large to very large and have real individual character but this borders on minimalist. Rooms have TV (includes some English & German channels), mini bar, settee, desk and chair, wardrobe. Larger rooms have bathrooms with baths with stand in showers and single rooms often only have showers.
iii). Breakfast is basic but adequate and at night the restuarant offers good quality food at reasonable prices based loosely on French-Italian-Czech style. However having used this hotel many times over several years the menu has never changed!
Items to be aware of -
i). The location of this hotel will not suit all as you really are in a small village (Ratbor) in the Czech countryside which gives it an isolated feel however this also has advantages should you be looking for a quiet stay. Reception is not 24hr. However the world heritage town of Kutna Hora is only 20 minutes away by taxi and Prague is about an hour by car.
ii). Communication may be an issue as not all staff speak English so don't expect complex requests to be understood.
iii). Bathrooms would serioulsy benefit from shower curtains and bath mats as often you will find your bathroom floor resembles the final scenes from Titanic if you are not so careful with where you direct your shower!
iv). If you are staying more than a few nights you could soon get bored with the basic breakfasts.
In summary - not for those who like to have distractions or cannot stand being alone. However if you are looking for something a little different, go for it, you may be surprised!
