Please look at this review as a review for their Superior Room, and not the hotel as a whole.
I recently stayed in Plzen for one night at the Hotel Rous. The location is unbeatable: it is half a block away from the town square, and not even a fifteen-minute walk to the train station. The staff were also very courteous, and the included breakfast was more than adequate. I recommend this hotel; however, do not upgrade to the superior room unless you are of inferior height.
While this was not an issue to me since I am able-bodied, the room is located on the top floor, which is two sets of stairs above the top floor reached by the elevator. If you have any walking disability, this is not a good room. While the room is indeed spacious, it has sloped ceilings that are very low in one half of the room and the exposed beams are a likely target for the inattentive head.
The main issue, however, was the bathroom. The tub was on a slope, so unless you were shorter than 1m40cm, you would have to crouch to shower. Additionally, there was no shower curtain, and the shower head had to be held by the user while showering. This resulted in some inconvenient acrobatics when one attempted to clean oneself. In a lower floor, this obviously would not have been an issue. Since we only stayed there for one night, we could laugh about this inconvenience, but it would have been intolerable on a longer stay.
In sum, I recommend this hotel, but do stay in a room in one of the lower floors.
