Hotel Ruze is a very charming hotel in a fairytale setting. The breakfast buffett is excellent. HOWEVER, the mattresses are very old, hard, and lumpy. Trying to sleep here for three nights was pure torture. I asked at the front desk for another room, but was told all the beds in the hotel were the same and they were going... More

Hotel Ruze, situated in Cesky Krumlov is perhaps the best staying option in this picturesque medieval town. The rooms are massive and the food was indeed delicious. The lady at the front desk (if only I could know her name) was particularly forthcoming and friendly and took care of all our needs. I remember how she went out of her... More

We just checked in to the hotel to find that our double room was two single beds pushed together with a large gap in between. When we complained they put a pillow in between the two beds...

The hotel itself is wonderful. Very historical looking, and like staying in a castle. The views from the back terrace over the river are stunning. We stayed in a suite and it was very large with exposed wooden beams throughout the ceiling (watch your head). The toilet was built like a throne. And the tub/shower was fine, although offering the... More

We brought a group of 40 guests through here for a group lunch. The fresh pea soup was very good, and the blueberry pancakes for dessert were really quite tasty. The chicken entree was pretty lackluster, and overall, the knights and ladies uniforms feel a little touristy and tired.

Formerly a 16th century Jesuit dormitory, the Hotel Ruze was very pleasant for the 2 nights we were there. Rooms are clean and simple, in accordance with hotel history, but more than adequate. I don't believe there is A/C, but we didn't need it during our stay - just having the huge windows open to wonderfully fresh air was enough... More

This hotel is in the heart of Chesky Krumlov and was an old monastery and was restored. IT is marketed as a 5 star but service here is far from 5 star and you get the feeling when you stay here that the staff welcomes the days of the Soviet occupation when the area was practically destroyed or was in...

We stayed at this hotel as part of a bike tour and from the photos, expected a charming little hotel. It was actually larger than expected, giving it the feel of a tour group hotel (which is not a plus in my mind). Our room was very small, very dark, with only 1 tiny little portal window, and a very... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel. Lovely quiet room with great view of river and autumn colours. We were looked after very well with engaging, efficient and obliging staff. The hotel just a short walk from main square, activities and eateries. Cesky Krumlov should be a must visit for all who visit the Czech Republic.

Great location, however the rooms are dated and need some updating. Service was mediocre. I had accidentally left a jacket at the hotel and sent an email asking if it was still left at the room, and tried calling, and received no response. I'd suggest looking at an alternative place to stay.
