“Unique Hotel in Unique City”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

A comfortable hotel with great views from the terrace. Don't let the midieval decor distract you from enjoying the history surrounding you! Easy walking distance from the hotel in and around the village. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful.

The old world feel of this converted monastery matches the magical nature of the city of Cesky Krumlov. My room was small but nice with a good sized bathroom, anteroom for clothes and small bedroom. Nice view from the window of the gardens below. Breakfast was a bit chaotic - this is a very busy hotel with lots of traveling groups. The hotel was close to the main square and we enjoyed walking around the old city.

Only stayed one night on the tour but wished we stayed longer. The room was fantastic, well themed and very large. Meals were great as was the service and advice we received from staff. View from the outdoor terrace was simply marvellous overlooking the valley and river. Location was excellent just inside the village but easy walking to all sights, the castle and other attractions. Really can't complain about anything. We will be back!

Stayed here recently for 2 nights; great location in the center of the area to visit yet just on the edge so not as busy with loads of people as some of the other hotels right by the castle though tourists are walking in and out of the hotel to check it out. Parking is interesting; there is parking very close to the hotel for guests (16E daily) but you cannot get in until you check in and have a room key ... you will need to park elsewhere to check in.
We booked a deluxe suite .. nice room with period furniture .. we had a view of the castle out one window. Nice size room for sure, good bed. The bathroom was nice though the shower barely drained ... no issue really though.
Breakfast was included ... with was nice with a fair selection.
Overall, a nice hotel with some character in a great little town ... We enjoyed our stay

Our room was large and very quiet. It had a sitting area with comfortable chairs; a table and a desk as well as king size bed. The restaurant provided us with the best meals during our 12 day stay. Everything we had from the menu was excellent. The service by all staff was of high quality and they were very helpful in arranging individual tours and providing information about Cesky Krumlov. It has rooftop dining overlooking the river as well as a bar and restaurant. They have secure parking available (for a charge). The hotel is an easy walk to any attaction in Cesky Krumlov

Prefer the rooms in the tower with direct view on the city. Beds are smaller but rooms more quiet and you really feel like being invited by the Castle owner. Breakfast is great and you can have it on the terrace at the back. Very quiet in spite of being right in the city, a much better location than the Old Inn, part of the same group.

Room Tip: Ask for the castle view, it's the better ones

Hotel was beautiful in all the public areas. however we were in room 216, which was in a separate area, up 2 flights of a spiral staircase (great fun with heavy luggage!) no air-conditioning, no wifi and a very small room-I don't think this was a 5 star rating

Room Tip: room 216 and 317 have no lift access

Dear Valuable Guest,

Your comments are duly noted and we are sorry that your stay was not to your full satisfaction. Our hotel, being part of a cultural heritage, is a unique old building which explains the small size of the rooms and the fact that they cannot be enlarged. This affects also the air-conditioning. There is wi-fi internet in the room.

Hoping this will not deter you from coming again to our Jan Hotels.

With kind regards,
Jan Hotels Management
