Well, there is a lot of choice in Cesky Krumlov. I guess half of the town is either a hotel / guesthouse or a restaurant. This is one of the few so called "hotels", which didn't look like grandmas place, but rather fresh and modern. Thats why i chose it.
Location: It's located just in the heart of Cesky Krumlov, near the market place. It's on a steep road (which was in the process of being rebuild (?) while i was there -> they blocked the street with a construction machine from one side), so choose your way to the hotel carefully, if you don't like steep streets (just approach it from the market place side). It's in a quite area with no cars, so your sleep will not be disturbed at night.
Hotel: Well, it's more a guesthouse, which doubles as a hotel, because it has a small reception (which closes after 8 p.m.). It's not big, it has a small reception, a small communal area and well, the rooms in two floors.
Rooms: We were at the ground floor, in a good sized room, with a nice leather sofa, some okay-ish beds (they were a bit soft and they didn't have a single matress, but two separated mattresses), a TV right in front of the bed, and a table and a place to hang your clothes. All in all the basic comfort was there, not complaints.
The bathroom was also very nice to look at and kept in a modern style.
Cleanliness was no problem and contrary to other reviews here, the room was made up after we left. They made our beds and cleaned it.
The problem i had with the room, apart from the separated and slightly soft mattresses (in a double bed) was the NOISE. The rooms are nice to look at with wooden floors, made out of historic wood, but this will also make sure, that you here everyone walking who is in the room in the first floor. And, if there is somebody in the communal area at the reception talking, you will hear everything they talk. This was especially bad, as it was the receptionist who was talking to someone sitting there and i had to hear it. Also in the morning you will hear a lot of noise when people start to get going.
Sleep Quality: I slept good, despite the bed. But in the morning you will be awaken by the noise around you.
Breakfast: The breakfast was okay. Coffee was surprisingly good, but the rest was just medicore and felt slightly cheap.
Service: Uff, not their best point. First, the reception is only open until 8 p.m. and second, if you do have a question, don't expect to much help. At first i was stared at in utter disbelief, when i told them that i walked from the train station. After i was given my key, nobody gave me a map or anything. No good customer support. Instead the girl was talking to a guy who was sitting there on a chair, talking with him. Then, when i wanted to pay, i asked if they accept Maestro Cards, they didn't know (but at least they tried). When i asked for the price of a taxi to the train station, they said it's maybe (!) 50 krona. Well, let me tell you, i was charged 170 krona ! They do really not know anything about the going ons in this town, i believe. Worse, nobody told me that the way will be blocked when i arrive, so that i cannot enter the street of the hotel from both sides. They should have known about this, when they sent the confirmation mail (2 days before my arrival). But no, it's just not so important, to communicate with your customers about this. They didn't even apologize for the construction work going on, directly before their door, which blocked the entire street.
Verdict: Well, it's still a good option, as it was quite cheap and modern. It's a bit noisy and not ultra-classy, but if you don't like guesthouses, this might be a better option. Just beware of the things i have written !
