Hotel has a very good location. Comfortable room had a main square view. No problem with a noise. In front of the main entrance is the biggest fountain in Czech republic - Samson fountain. Hope to come back soon.

In a three-week train journey from the UK to Italy, through the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria, this was the best hotel I stayed in. Friendly and efficient reception staff and porters, an exceptionally comfortable bed in a very pleasant, characterful room, a decent shower, an outstanding breakfast (local cheese, local sausage, etc) and standing in a perfect position on the main square. Couldn't have been better.

The restaurant's pretty good too. I've reviewed that separately.

To get there from the station, it's easiest to get a taxi. If there isn't one waiting outside the station, either ring the hotel or go to the travel centre (Centrum Informatice) behind the ticket windows in the station and they'll call you one.

Room Tip: I had room 704, under sloping windows under the roof, so I could lie down looking at clouds racing a...

We picked this hotel off of the internet and were not disappointed. The location is great facing the main square and easy walking distance to restaurants and any local town sites. the rooms were very clean and comfortable and semi updated.and had good internet. this town is beautiful at night for photo opportunities. The breakfast had a very good variety and quality and there restaurant was as good as any in town-a good value. All rooms in the hotel are equally quiet and there is very good security in access to the elevators. there is secure car parking that is reached by giving your car to the attendant it is put in an elevator and parked in a garage behind the hotel. be patent with the desk staff as their English is limited.

Room Tip: All rooms are about equal however when choosing dinner reserve a seat in the non smoking room if you...

We just spent the WE at Zvon Grand. I couldn't imagine staying in another place while in Ceske Budejovice. We booked the junior suite, and it had the most magnificent view on the Premysla square. Fast free wifi, free mini-bar and free parking was included!! Only downside is the breakfast which I found very cheap in comparison to what the hotel offers.
Will definitely return only there if I am around again.

I was quite surprised with the quality of this hotel. The only negative I could find is rather ugly reception which in my personal opinion do not really fit to this historic building. The room as well as bathroom was beatiful and spacious (however, there could be more toiletries available, I miss some body milk). The breakfast was very good. You can park there (for fee). In the room is wifi available for free. There is also very good restaurant.
Good hotel for both holiday and business trip.

Location of the hotel is great, right in the centre of České Budějovice city, in historical building (since 16th century). Staff of the hotel was friendly and helpful. The room we spent two nights was clean and comfortable. The hotel includes a few restaurants with interesting offer of meals. We tried the services of Gourmet Symphony restaurant and have been positively surprised. The cuisine definitely stays above the Czech average moreover the prices of meals were reasonable. The price for the room was reasonable a well. On the other hand the biggest negative was breakfast offer. “Breakfast classic” is not sufficient for 4-star hotel located in the heart of city. Besides some of the served rolls and buns were hard (not fresh), very likely left-overs from previous days. Perhaps the negative is also payment 9 €/night for the parking in hotel garages, especially if the entrance into the garages (including the obsolete lift with operating staff) more recalls second half of 20th century. If the management of hotel decides to require the payment for parking within the hotel, should modify the parking infrastructure. The minor deficiency was the bathroom facilities. One small shampoo and shower gel for three persons is too little for such a hotel. Just one bigger (refill) fluid container for shampoo and / or shower gel would be an elegant and simple solution (in line with modern ecological trend).

Classic hotel with big, nicely appointed rooms. I booked a deluxe room overlooking the square and couldn't have been more pleased with size and value. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in the area.
