The hotel is in a great location in the square. The building is old and lack modern services, rooms are huge, bathrooms need renovation. The breakfast is satisfactory. The lobby is dark and not inviting. However, the service in the front desk is wonderful.

Ceske Budejovic was a lovely place to visit for my first time in Czech Republic. The Hotel Zvon faces on to the lovely old square and offers comfortable rooms at reasonable prices, good food, a choice of places to eat and drink (including an outdoor restaurant overlooking the square). The service was good, the rooms were clean and the heating/air... More

When it comes to small but essential details, there is lack of interest or understanding. From receptionists to waiters to porters, there is indifference. Everything is an effort usually performed with a deep sigh if not outright rudeness. It is classed as four plus hotel but it was "not possible"to have a kettle in the room but you could "take...

I'm not sure if i should or shouldn't recommend Grandhotel Zvon in České Budějovice. It was a pleasant stay, but not everything went smoothly. I particularly book a room with air conditioning about four weeks in advance. I arrived at the hotel, the reception was nice and warm and I was guided to my room. I settled in only to... More

Grand Hotel Zvon has nice location by the main square in Ceske Budejovice. There was a nice view from the room to the main square. The room was not very grand. I would rate it as average. The public space in Grand Hotel Zvon looks oudated and in urgent need of repair. The breakfast is rather poor. The service in... More

We have just returned from a nostalgic visit to the Zvon Hotel having last stayed there in 1970 with two 3 and 4 year old Children, one of whom is 50 this year!! Of course, during the communist era the hotel was quite old fashioned & plumbing & sanitary arrangements were poor but we were delighted to see the wonderful... More

its just luck as to how your experience goes since it appears management is not providing proper supervision to ensure all departments are performing to the best. - worse check in anywhere, with a lazy rude, sullen, loud, garish receptionist. - asked to reserve diningroom for dinner, told, its closed on weekends, asked for assistance and other suggestions elsewhere and...

I have only good things to say about this hotel. We arrived into Ceske Budejovice early on Friday morning on I believe the busiest weekend of the year for the hotel. When asked if we could check in early it was a 'your room is ready' from the delightful Front Desk agent. We got up to our room on the... More
