“Great stay in a convenient location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We spent two nights at the hotel in July 2014. The receptionist was friendly and check in was very quick and efficient. The room was larger than I expected and very clean. We were placed in room 7 which does not have a view of the castle and is on the road which we found a bit noisy when the rubbish truck rolled by in the morning. When booking I would recommend you request a castle facing room if it is available. The breakfast is very basic and could be improved slightly - fresher bread would make all the difference! - and chipped crockery could be thrown away. Don't let this put you off the hotel though. As per the other reviews I could not fault the location although if you have trouble with stairs please note that there is no lift. We just had a drink on the restaurant balcony and it had an amazing view. The hotel was great value for money and perfect for a 1 of 2 night stay which is more than enough to explore all Cesky Krumlov has to offer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the castle

This is a really nice hotel, great location in the old town and VERY close to bus station (best way to get there from Prague is Student Agency bus vs train).

We had a large attic room on the second floor with room for 3 people, classy wooden beams over the bed area (though watch your head), a beautiful new bathroom, and lots of space. Best of all we had an amazing view of the castle and river - same view many tourists walk to an overlook next to the hotel to get.

Breakfast was nice and coffee/tea/water available all day (though not always refilled).

Staff was nice, but reception seems to close at 16:00. Not sure what they do if you arrive after so better call/email.

Has a restaurant and cafe with nice views as well, though we only went there for coffee.

Only real negative is no air conditioning in the room, but even in a heat wave it was OK with windows open at night.

Room Tip: Second floor is probably best. 3rd floor is by breakfast area an may be noisy. The attic room on...

Wonderful wee hotel which is minutes from the bus station. The entrance to the hotel is also 2 restaurants, but staff always around. We had a room that was on the top floor over looking the castle - and the view was breathtaking - ask for room 9 or 10. Also any rooms on the top floor are next to the breakfast area. Breakfast was tasty. Our room was spacious, our bathroom had a shower and a corner bath. Wifi was a bit touch and go, but you are not there to spend the time on the internet. Hotel was also minutes from the town centre, you could only really spend a day/night in the town. One tip - when all the bus tours go, head up to the castle bridge and watch the sunset, it is alot easier, than trying to get past tour groups.

First, there is no 24 hour reception. The reception closes at 16:00. My first night was spent without heat. The second morning, there wasn't any hot water. The breakfast is horrid. The price is reasonable and the location is fine. But if you really want a nice experience; stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Avoid a triple room unless you are short. You'll hit your head on the beams.

The 3 hour bus journey to Cesky Krumlov from Prague makes you wonder why you decided to go check this place out but trust me, it’s worth it. Cesky Krumlov is picturesque and idyllic but only worth a one day trip, there’s not too much to see.

Once we arrived in the town, it’s a short walk from the bus station to go then you are onto the main strip or street, or whatever you want to call it. Hotel Arcadie is a bit further down from the start but you can’t miss the sign on front of the building.

The receptionist wasn’t there when we arrived and we were told we would have to wait till she was back – this was a bit annoying to begin with as we didn’t know how long this would be but she was only 2 minutes. When she arrived, she was so helpful. It helped that we had a friend from the Czech Republic with us so she did all the talking – we Scottish guys just carried the luggage. Check in was quick and easy and off we went to our room.

The room was big, bright and all set up for us immediately. We had a family room so there were two beds pushed together like a double then another single bed in the corner (same size etc). I don’t know what it is about Czech Rep., but they have the strangest pillows ever - BIG square things that feel like they are full of bean bag filling. Nevermind, once you’ve had a few cocktails at Apoteka you don’t mind them.

Breakfast was good. They were offering continental; baguettes, ham, cheese, jam, other meats, cereals, yoghurts, toast, juices, coffee and tea etc… same as every other continental. We had the place to ourselves so nothing was rushed. Check out was at 11am, nice & quick again then we had the long bus journey back to Prague. Overall, great hotel, clean & tidy, SUPERB location, great value – would definitely go back!! Thanks Arcadie.

Very clean large triple room. Bathroom also clean w separate shower and tub. Soap shampoo supplied. Could not get wifi to work. We notified ahead of time that our bus would arrive very late near midnight and reception not open after six p.m. so key would be left at the Large hotel Ruze up the street. We arrived at the bus station (no indoor station) in the dark.and rain and had no idea which way to walk in this remote location. Another traveller had a verbal description to her pension (Gardena-seemed nice) so we took a 50% chance to head off in correct direction. We found her pension and a guest from her pension walked us towards Hotel Ruze where no one answered repeated doorbell ringing. Meanwhile we stood in rain in the cold. We went into open reception area to our place and called number given to us earlier. Reception person arrived by car and door to Ruze was opened for her(she probably called first). Soooo we finally got in to sleep. Nice night view of castle. Breakfast all cold which is fine but plentiful.
