Hotel Jonathan
Ranked #28 of 75 Brno B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 September 2012

We stayed in Hotel Jonathan this August 2012 and we were very pleased with this place. The personnel was very friendly and helpful, the room was very nice and clean and had nice view to pretty garden. The hotel itself was very pretty in pretty location. Dinner in nearby restaurant Marco Polo was excellent. We would recommend this hotel and we would come back here again for another GP :) J & E McIntyre, Scotland, UK.

I've stayed here for several weeks whilst working in Brno. It worked out really well and that was down to the owners who are very helpful people.
First it's worth pointing out that if like me you have lived in the Czech republic for a while you'll be aware that generally speaking customer service is due to enter the country sometime around 2035 if it's not delayed again. Anywhere that defies this general truth needs to be applauded. Hotel Jonathan is family run, the family have traveled outside of the country, understand foreigners, know what people are looking for and try to deliver it. If you need something ask them, they'll try to help. English is spoken within the family. You are not going to be left wondering where the conversation went wrong which so often happens in this country.
The hotel is functional, in the sense that things work. The owner built it himself, it's kept functioning, no-one is going to look skywards and blame the maintenance man. Decor isn't particularly fashionable but it's definitely clean and rooms are serviced properly. There's internet in the building, wired and fixed. It works and it's included in the price.
It's a semi B&B in the Czech style so you get breakfast and there's a fridge you can take drinks from and snacks. Mark off your tally as you go.
For evening meals just up the road is a reasonably priced local restaurant serving pizza, pasta and Czech/European dishes. Good place to eat, friendly as well. I used it as a living room in the evenings. It's got an outside seating area and it's kid friendly. There's a pool hall and bowling alley nearby and a new swimming pool about 200 meters away with an aqua park side so it's good for kids in bad weather as well as for people like me that like to swim a few laps before work. It's pretty cheap too. The aqua park also has a gym. You can use it (or/and) the pool for 50CZK (2 Euro) in the mornings (over 90 minutes) and a bit more in the evenings so it's like having a leisure center at the hotel. Worth noting and why I gave the hotel a score for pool and fitness center even though it hasn't got one. In practical terms it has, you just need to walk to it. I don't think the owners make enough of the proximity to that facility, I used it every morning.
The all important breakfast is solid: ham, eggs, bread, butter, cereal, yogurt and coffee strong enough for even me.
Transport is very good. There's a bus stop outside the door which will take you to town and back. It's also on the night bus route so you can always get back from a night out with no fuss. Zoo bus stops there too. Good location for the race track and also to get to the business park by the uni. Parking outside the door.
I mostly stayed as a business traveler but I had my family come over a weekend and it was good for them. Several other families went through during my stay and all seemed very happy.
In terms of price I'm not sure it can be beaten in Brno so it's definitely a value for money place given how good the experience is. Brno can be very expensive because of the expos and the small amount of local beds, there are not a whole lot of places to stay that would be near to as good as this for the money or for more come to think of it. The sports facilities nearby and transport in the area really top it off.
If you are looking for a place with a chandelier then OK go elsewhere but if you are traveling for work or on holiday with a normal budget and want a no hassle stay with friendly people then this would be for you.
Would be good for groups I should think as there is plenty of space and I'm sure specific needs could be catered for.

We travel to one MotoGP meeting every year. We have been to Brno before but this is the first time we have stayed at this hotel but not the last. Its very convenient being on a main bus route. Also there is a fine restaurant and a bar nearby. The rooms were clean, quiet, comfortable and free use of WiFi and Internet was a bonus. Ladislav the Owner could not have been more friendly and obliging. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed here three nights in early June and really enjoyed our time at Jonathan's. Free wifi, comfortable beds, good water pressure in the bathroom and a very nice breakfast made us feel very relaxed and well taken care of. There's easy access to the bus stop not even 50m from the door. Good staff who spoke decent English. Would definitely recommend for a budget b&b/guesthouse.

Room Tip: Try a room away from the street, sometimes the noise in the morning is a bit much for a light sleepe...

I really enjoyed my stay there and felt very lucky to have found this place - a nice Bed & Breakfast place, surrounded by woods and gardens, in a quiet neighborhood, and yet so close to the center of Brno. It was also very convenient for getting on the highway to Prague, Bratislava or Svitavy.
The room and bath room were very clean, also the dining room. The breakfast was excellent. The owner and personnel were very helpful, be it for giving direction, helping with vocabulary, or dietary requirements. As mentioned in the description, there is free parking and free internet. The breakfast includes eggs, ham, cheese, yogurt, french press coffee, etc. They even organized whole-wheat bread for me (which I asked for when making the reservation). There is also a snack bar with drinks and snacks for sale in the entrance hall, and the reception sells basic toiletry articles. There is a restaurant within walking distance, but I did not visit it.

Room Tip: ask for a garden side room
