My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights from Tues.2011.Sep.27. The price was $71 Euros per night.
We got to this hotel a little later in the evening when it was getting dark and it's a little hard to find, so be sure to mark it on your GPS before you get there.
After arriving, we were told that parking was not available directly by the hotel and that we'd have to drive to parking lot "P3" and then walk back. We were given a 1 day parking voucher and a 2 day parking voucher to use.
The staff unfortunately did not have a 3 day pass. I believe the pass is good for in and out usage. If you don't get a pass for your entire stay, like us, you'll have to drive the car out and back in with the next pass. Use the pass with the machines to get in and out, you won't need to push the button, else it spits out ticket.
The room was on the second floor and was quite large, perhaps because it was a room for 3 people. The bathroom is extremely large as well and the tub is big enough to soak in. There is no shower curtain though and water will end up on the floor if you're not careful.
There's no hot water boiler, alarm clock or hair dryer. There is a table, five chairs, large armoire and 2 bedside tables. The WiFi was good and reliable. There's a radiator in the washroom and by the window. If you want heat, you'll have to ask them to turn it on. There was no A/C unit, so expect to be hot in the summer, didn't see a fan either.
The curtain is somewhat thin, but the view was the rear of another building, so there was not much light coming in during the evening that would make sleeping difficult. What did make sleeping difficult was the constant dance music that is played by the staff in the bar area. It does not get turned down until 23:00 hours.
The sound insulation of the building is not good but at least there was not a constant barrage of sound like in Prague.
The blankets are somewhat short and I had to put on socks while sleeping.
I think we tried the television very briefly, we couldn't find anything worth watching in English.
Breakfast was included in our stay, here's what they had:
3 types of bread. Fruits: oranges, bananas, peaches, apples, kiwi. Meat slices. Cheese slices. Plain yogurt. Cereal: corn flakes, granola mix. Jams, butters, spreadable ham. Orange juice, water, coffee and milk.
For some reasons, the smaller kiwis are more ripe than the bigger ones. If you want hot tea, milk, you'll have to ask for it. Not everyday will have all fruit. On one day that seemed busier, they also had boiled eggs, cut in half and tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, as well as a strudel type of dessert.
If I were to come back to Cesky Krumlov, I would stay at a hotel with parking closer by as having to bring your luggage to the car can be an inconvenience. As well, choose a hotel without a restaurant on the first floor as the noise of the diners and the music can be quite loud.
I've included a picture of a map of the city. You can see where P3 is as well as other parking spots P1 and P2, it looks like a far walk, but it's really it's only 5 - 8 minutes. Before you book a hotel, ask them if they have parking or if it's at one of the lots.
Overall not a bad place to stay but other places with less noise and more convenience would make your stay even more enjoyable.
