The surrounding riverside area of Cesky Krumlov is full of hotels/pensions, most boast view of the castle/tower. This one must be one of the most modern, being completely refurbished only recently. It had key-card entry/power switch, clean and new bathroom and a good size bedroom. We inspected the room before we made the decision to stay so was able to select which view we would prefer to have from lying on the bed. The downside is no lift for the ~40kg luggage but then I bet most other pensions around had no lift.
The service was exceptional with the manager eager to help out with regards to every aspect of our request. We felt very at home indeed. We enjoyed the included buffet breakfast; it had only a small selection of hot and cold food but it was very pleasant nonetheless. It was close to most tourist attraction and at night fall while some tourists walked to the riverbank underneath the hills, we stayed atop of them in the comfort of our room enjoying the spectacular view.
I think this hotel is still on the improve: it seemed at time short-staffed, having to manage a cafe/restaurant on site, the mini-bar at the room we stayed had empty bottles not restocked and the fridge initially wasn't functional. The manager needed to come up to our room to do some maintenance a couple of time.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the view and the much modern facilities, especially having stayed at another accommodation here in Cesky Krumlov, the comparative value of this hotel was exceptional.
