“Mix of old and new”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This hotel has some old style to it, sort of communist area still very present. Fascinating style, but an average standard. I liked staying here most since it is different from most other hotels I have been staying in recently.

Reviewed 7 April 2014

I have stayed here many times over the last 35 years. Very well placed for walking into the center. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Main point is it is easy to drive to, being just off the inner ring road. Breakfast is ok for continental, but the cooked breakfast is very lacking, a choice of fried egg, bacon and warm ham, more 2 star than 4

Dear guest,
thank you for coming to hotel Continental for 35 years! It is nice of you to take your time and write this review. I am glad to have the feedback and see what more we can do for our guests. The selection of our hot breakfast meals consists of fried eggs, bacon, warm ham and sausages as you mentioned but there is a possibility to get more from our grill such as omelet with ham, omelet with cheese, omelet with onion. We also take a special orders and you can get scrambeled eggs or boiled eggs freshly done by our chef. Please ask our staff next time when you visit us and we will be more than happy to serve you.
Thank you again for your loyalty.
Yours Sincerely, Petra Vicenikova

I stayed in this hotel for 2 night and I cant fault it. Not sure if I would rate it 4* but its reasonably priced with walking distance to the town centre. All the staff were very helpful and would do their upmost to keep you happy.

4* hotel...? Well... No. Maybe 2*. Small, really very small rooms, bathroom extremely small & really dirty with mold on walls. This is not the place you want to visit. And not to forget: this hotel is really expensive.

Dear Mr. Weetek,
we are planning to renovate about 100 rooms by the end of this year. Our architect has a very good ideas how to make the rooms and bathrooms bigger. Hopefully we can please you more in the near future. Our price of the room compare to other hotels in the center of the town is very reasonable.
Thank you for beeing our guest for many years and hopefully we can offer you our services again.
Yours sincerely,

Reviewed 28 December 2013

We spent one night in Hotel Continental in the beginning of december. Hotel is a few blocks away from centrum, but it takes only few minutes to walk there.

There were two main christmas markets in Brno. Both felt more local and less commercial than the markets in Prague. We can recommend visiting them.

Hotel was an old soviet era building, but it was ok. Room was small and clean but not very modern. The bathroom had been renovated and was very good. Breakfast and service in the breakfast room was very good.

Room Tip: Rooms att the upper floors have good view. Try to get one facing the town.

Reviewed 25 October 2013

We stayed several days on a business trip, first time in Brno. Especially the outside of the Continental reminded me of old Eastern European hotels in Soviet Union or DDR. Our room was on the 6th floor, one of the several non-smoking floors of this hotel. Spaceous, tidy and comfortable room, the style reminding again a little of old Eastern Europe. The bathroom was modern and nice, with a bath and shower. Free wi-fi worked perfectly and rather fast throughout our stay. Large breakfast buffet with lots of choice, even if the breakfast room was somewhat clinical for its atmosphere - and interestingly had nearly every morning more serving staff than customers - but we apparently visited in a non-busy week! The service was professional and friendly. The location is at walking distance from downtown.

Room Tip: There are five non-smoking floors!

Reviewed 25 October 2013

Stayed there one night for a business trip. Reception staff very efficient - upgraded my colleague to a "Design" room as her originally chosen one wasn't available (at 22h). The hotel is very much 70's retro style and even the refurbishment that has clearly taken place at least in the room I was in, was in the same style.

One quirky thing that hit me immediately is that the shower and sink are directly in the room (the WC is luckily in a closed-off closet, kind of), which is otherwise small - average in size. It did bring memories of a hospital room, and I don't think it would be much appreciated except if you're on a romantic/couples trip.

Otherwise the room was fairly clean (although the housekeeping isnt' as thorough as it should be). Two complementary small bottles of water as well as some cookies were in the room. I even had a small terrace with a fantastic view of Spielberk castle. The room was however rather warm, although the radiator was off, and I had to leave the terrace door open to get some air.

Breakfast the next day was ok, although the room seemed more like a school canteen, than a hotel dining room. The staff seemed to be poor on English, and the very young waiter could not even tell me that they didn't have capuccino, only regular coffee.

All in all, not a bad experience, but at €100/night I think it is a bit overpriced.
