This was a tale of two halves for me.
This is quite a "funky" kind of place, whose recent history appears to be rooted in hippy land. Certainly the room I was in was a bit wacky - part-painted Orange. All the rooms are individual, are clean and comfortable, although the room I stayed in - Mr Koutak (all the rooms are named after their original owners apparently) - seemed to have very little in the way of wardrobe area, or drawers to put clothes away, except for a small hanging rail, despite it being a double plus two singles.
I ate here on one of my two nights in the town. There's a huge selection to choose from - and if the rest of the food was as nice as my own choice, there's almost no need to eat anywhere else. Plus side / down side was that a local band of musicians were playing their own inimitable style of muzak whilst I dined. Not sure if they were practicing or playing !! All part of the experience in my view.
The hotel is just off the main square of the town - a real gem of a place, off the beaten track - and the room was VERY QUIET.
Staff were friendly and helpful and was very impressed by their English, as this may not be the 1st foreign language spoken by them due to the town's proximity to the Austrain border.
But like many Czech hotels, my room had no curtains, and so light streamed in from 5.30am, in the height of summer this would be more like 3.30-4.00am.
The adverse side was breakfast in the morning. Arriving at 8.00am isn't late but it seemed that no-one was around until I prompted the cleaner / chef to call someone who came to the hotel. This happened both mornings. My suggestion would be to have a late breakfast (after 9am) and take your own blackout blinds - and then enjoy.
Other than these last two "gripes", I'd certainly recommend the place to any visitor to this part of Southern Bohemia
