Zvon is a very good hotel for seeing Ceske Budejovice or as a home base for visiting villages in the south of the Czech Republic. Located on the main square it is a 15 minute walk from the central bus and train station. There are a number of excellent places to eat within a five minute walk as well several...

Great location hotel in the centre of city with good restaurant with bio meat from their own farms - typical "tartar" is great and fresh. Hotel is very clean, no problem parking, and I think, that this is definitelly best choice in Ceske Budejovice. I missed only better breakfast.

This hotel is slap bang in the centre of town in the large square. It's a large hotel which is combined with a conference centre and other facilities and back in communist days would have entertained the top Party members. The entrance lobby, corridors and rooms are large but after an extensive upgrade is really comfortable and relaxing. The en...

Right on the square, this traditional building, converted to a hotel will help you feel the old world charm of the southern Czech region. And being off the square makes it the perfectly located. The room locations are quirky, as they had to position them at various heights across two levels... But it's fun to find your room through the...

Comfortable, well appointed and clean hotel situated in the city's main square - normally a beautiful sight but currently marred by some (temporary, one trusts) horrible wooden excrescence forming a totally un-needed bridge from the centre of the square to a shopping centre. One cavil however: the hotel's bar and restaurant offers only Pilsener Urquell, an inferior Czech beer which...

The hotel is in the main square, so the location perfect! The building looks old (but renewed) from outside, but interiors are absolutely new or renewed as well. It stays in three different buildings which had been built together so it's a kind of labyrinth. The garage is on the top of it where you reach with a car-elevator and...

We spent 3 nights at the hotel as we took day trips via bus to surrounding attractions. The location is very nice on the Old Town Square. There is a host of excellent restaurants within a short walk. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the train station and to the bus station through a nice section of...

Nice hotel with great rooms in a great location. Comfortable beds, large rooms and no noise. What more needs to be said? One thing actually: they may not be able to guarantee indoor parking but you can use the paid parking on the square. It's "free" from 6pm to 8am so if you pay for 30 minutes around 5.58pm then...

I have booked superior double room four months before checking in. Asked them to provide us (2 people) with double bed and car parking space as they mentioned to have it for 350 CZK a day. Never got reply directly from them but that does not always happen. Their website showed very nice photos of superior rooms adding that even...

Nice old building (since 1533) on main central square. Stayed for one night. Got a room with very good view of the main square. The quality of breakfast was so so. The room is big but needs a renovation.
