Even though the hotel is not in the city center, the tramway is just two steps away from the front of the hotel, literally! The room was clean, the bathroom too, and the breakfast had a good choice of bread, ham, chesse, jam and fruit. The staff was friendly and the best thing was the weather indicated every day in...

We chose this hotel due to lower price but we had a pleasant surprise. The staff was nice, helped us with guidance about the city. Even in front of the hotel is a tram that goes to the center. Breakfast was varied, there are possibilities of choice. The only problem is at night when traveled street noise is quite disturbing.

As Hotel Otakar was quite cheap, I didn't have high expectations, however I was pleasantly surprised! The hotel looks beautiful from outside and is equally charming inside. Upon arrival the receptionist was extremely helpful, instantly providing us with a free city map, travel help and where we could find certain attractions in very good English. The room itself was clean...
