This is a charming old world small hotel. The room key is still a "key" with a wooden fob attached. I had a lovely big corner room that had one window overlooking river and restaurants and the other overlooking river and castle. I would change a few things in the huge bathroom. The lighting is quite dim for makeup. I have never been a fan of European hand held shower hoses fastened above a big tub with no curtain. The tub is huge and deep if you are a soaker but its a very high step-over if you are an older person. The hotel restaurant is on the river and has very good food. I recommend the pate'.
On our last night the manager made the decision to turn off the heat because we were the only guests in the hotel. No one told us and the room was freezing. When I went to recepce they gave us a space heater for the bedroom, but of course it was some time before the bedroom was warm and the bathroom was still very cold. The next morning on check out, receoce said there was nothing they could do about this. Bad service decision.
At the height of the pandemic's second wave we visited the restaurant of this hotel, which is on a river bank terrace. The service was efficient and polite, although English was not their strong suit. My wife adored her mushroom dish, and my chicken was good as well, although the roasted potatoes were no all cooked. We shall come back though.
Our family of four stayed on the top floor suite overlooking the Vlatava, the bridge and the old town. We had a balcony. The views were glorious, from both bedrooms and the balcony. The master bedroom was large. The Vlatava ran past our suite and at night we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the flowing river. It was delightful. The suite was elegantly furnished. The hotel is ideally located in the centre of the old town, with all the sights close by, as well as many quality restaurants and bars. The buffet breakfast was generous and of high quality. Staff were friendly and helpful. We greatly enjoyed staying there and will return.
We totally enjoyed our 2 nights stay at Hotel Dvorak Castle View room! It is a short walking distance away from carpark 1 and its in the middle of town which makes it easy to explore the small beautiful town of Cesky Krumlov. Room is big and cosy but do not expect a new modern decor. Toilet has an old world luxury charm with marble and gold fittings. Breakfast was excellent even though it doesn't have a huge spread. Reception is very helpful to provide information. We stayed in the Castle View room and the view is indeed amazing. We love looking out of our window and enjoy the fresh cold air. Overall, I will highly recommend to stay at this hotel if you plan to stay over at Cesky Krumlov! However, do take note of thief at the Cesky Krumlov Castle.
