“New hotel, nice price, top service, outside the city, but charmless”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

Hotel Vaka is located next to a shopping mall - 24 hours open - in the town of Brno, approx. 3 km to the centre of Brno. It is a new and top clean hotel. The rooms are small with 2 single beds. Room had TV, microwave and fridge with small minibar. Bathroom very clean with shower, free WiFi, free and attended parking lot, a bottle of water 0,20 €, € 56 / night.

Staff very pleasant and eager to help. Speak English good.

Breakfast is a small buffet with cereal, cold meats/cheeses, a small hot selection, which is in a room about the size of my kitchen. There is no restaurant or bar so to speak.

It is very basic hotel, so to speak, but economic. If you are looking for a low cost basic hotel, this is it. If you are looking for some thing with amenities and location, then you are better off elsewhere.

We stayed here for 3 Nights and combined it with an overnight stay in Prague. New years eve was exciting. The hotel is clean, comfortable with outstanding personal attention service particularly from Stanislav the young manager. Excellent.

Hotel Vaka is located next to a shopping mall in the town of Brno. It is a clean basic 3 star hotel. The rooms are small with 2 single beds, where my feet hang off. Room had microwave and fridge with small minibar. Bathroom clean with shower.

Staff very pleasant and eager to help. Speak English good.

Breakfast is a small buffet with cereal, cold meats/cheeses, a small hot selection, which is in a room about the size of my kitchen. There is no restaurant or bar so to speak.

It is very basic hotel, so to speak, but economic. If you are looking for a low cost basic hotel, this is it. If you are looking for some thing with amenities and location, then you are better off elsewhere.

I will give a 3 star rating, because it should be ranked as a 3 star hotel, although it advertises itself as 4 star.

Just returned from a two night stay in Brno. I picked Vaka due to the proximity to the vet school which was an easy 10 minute walk. The hotel was absolutely great. Not luxury but very nice and new. Room included free wifi, safe, kitchenette, tv etc. Bathroom and shower were all new. Beds comfortable though sheets a bit weird. Staff was wonderful and the friendly manager came to ask us how everything was the first night. Breakfast was plentiful with a nice selection including good o.j.

It is located just next to a shopping mall with a food court. The Tesco there is open 24/7 so if you are ever very hungry and can buy something there and eat in your room. The mall has a nice food court open until about 10 pm. Otherwise the location is not great. It is an hour walk to the center of time. The closest bus does not go to the center of town. There are trams and buses about a 10 minute walk away uphill. The walk to the center of town and the tram were very nice but the weather was excellent might not be so nice in the winter. Taxi from the main bus station is about $10.
