“A four stars from the past. Actually should be a two.”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

Arrived to this hotel for a 2 days convention with one of our clients. First thing I saw was obviously the building itself, ugly, typical from the comunism era. Reception hasn't been redecorated in the last 40 years. Receptionist kind and check in happened fast. Parking space, below the building seems to be redone or new. Then...then came the rooms...Eleventh floor, for your reference. Corridors and rooms themselves haven't been touched in the last 40 years neither. it is ugly and makes you feel like in a cheap hostel (what in Spain we call pension) Phones in the room should be in a museum. Toiletries substandard for a 4 stars and shower, second day in the morning, decided to stop hot water, as if it couldn't cope with so many people takins showers at the same time.
Another story is about internet and food. Internet is good, you can connect by cable or wirless. Is free, wireless sometimes doesn't work (I guess if many people using, like was the case in our convention) and by cable, works reasonably well. It is free.
Food was served for us in breakfast and lunch. Is good, and service quick. I wouldn't say food is outstanding, but it could be of a four stars hotel. The rest of the hotel should be left to 1 or 2 stars, maximum. Needs urgently a full refurbishment to bring the hotel to the 4 stars standard, or loose stars.

My first visit at this hotel was for one week in September and two years after in January for two weeks. Brno hasn't got a lot to offer and this hotel is close to the central area of Brno's shops, restaurants and attractions. The first time our office was really close but the second time we had to take a tram and walk or a taxi to go the industrial area. The personnel was really helpful calling for a taxi each time and always smiling (only the reception area staff). The hotel has only one main restaurant for lunch and dinner and a small bar which doesn't have a lot to offer. The hotel is mainly for conferences so it doesn't have anything else to offer and that was really bad for us as we stayed there for two weeks the second time and it was quite boring. The room tv had only two channels in English at the time and it was nothing interesting on. Internet speed was really slow and disappointing but the fact that after two years they have upgraded from dial up to WiFi was really good. Their breakfast was good but all the time the same. We only ate once in the hotel when it snowed and everything else was shut but the food quality isn't worth to be mentioned. The hotel had also a computer available for use next to the bar but with limited access not really good if you wanna print your ticket. Also a warmer welcome feeling from the staff in restaurant area would have been nicer.

I spent three nights at the Hotel Continental, attending a conference at the university. The accommodation was comfortable, and the restaurant food good. Location-wise, it is an easy walk from the bus station, but, since the streets of Brno are cobbled, dragging a suitcase is a noisy experience. Walking in to Brno centre is easy, as was walking to the university buildings. The hotel has good free Wi-Fi coverage, capable of supporting a VPN connection and both Skype and FaceTime, although it tended to be on the slow slide. There was a convenient tram stop just around the corner, by the park, from what I think was the central tram station. There was also a useful corner shop opposite. If I were to stay in Brno again, I would head for this hotel happily.

Room Tip: Smoking and non-smoking rooms are available; although the pleasant reception staff asked me, I would...

Keep in mind Brno is not Prague and there are not too many attractions.
The hotel is completely renovated and upgraded.
The meals are splendid and the staff are polite and helpful.
The hotel is big and during busy periods it may be crowded.

Four of us (two couples) stayed here recently and was disappointed with the ugly and noisy construction going on at the front of the hotel. The air-conditioning system did not work well so we had to leave the windows open. The toiletries (soap, shampoo, and body wash) in the bathroom were of inferior quality. The hotel is located in a quiet part of the city but only a 10-minute walk to the city center. The breakfast fare (included) was good but the room faced the construction. The bar/restaurant, though small, offered good and reasonably-priced food. All in all, we didn't think the hotel was good value for money.

This hotel has been booked by the hosting organization for me. It is pretty well located just north of the city center. Walking from train station takes like 15 minutes. The hotel offes all the things you might require on a normal business trip. However, I did not see a swimming pool or sport facilities. The breakfast is ok, but did not look that fresh, although the coffee was good. The service was excellent and fast. I got a iron for free use and could buy a new tooth brush at night at the reception. Overall good value for money (especially with the university deal). Please note, that there is currently construction in front of the hotel, but which did not bother me at all (my particular room just faced the opposite side). Finally, Internet is for free (wifi and cable).

we stayed here with my father during the fia gt1 championship for one night, and for that price it's great value. they have guarded parking spot, rooms were appropriate, obliging waiter on the breakfast was nice to us. but the biggest upside is the reception. the staff will help you or give you nice advice regarding eating out. plus they have complimentary cable inet connection.
