We stayed in the old town for 2 nights. This made it very nice and relaxed. It can easily be done in 1 day but in a hurry. Its like a fairy tale all is very nicely restored and clean. Great for couples for romance....More

A real gem. We love Prague but this town is a must visit place. Lots of charm and character. We also found it affordable and great value.

This is a great place to get a feel of medieval history if you don't have a lot of time as you can walk around most of the old town center in one day. We were here as part of our Viking Danube river cruise...More

The best way to see Cesky Krumlov is to just wander the streets...don’t worry about following a map, because you really cannot get lost. You will always come back to the twisting river and it is very easy to figure out where you are. Usually...More

Nice hotel, great for shopping, nice and cozy bars and restaurants. You can walk around and through the narrow streets and admire the local typical souvenirs.

Commercialism is coming fast and furiously. Come before the old charm is gone. City center is easy to navigate as it meanders around the Vltava. Many old buildings are now hotels. Easy walk to castle and gardens, if you are good on cobblestones!

This is a wonderful town in terms of architecture and history, marvellously renovated and now Unesco heritage. The best times to see the centre are before 11 and after 4, otherwise the many tour groups detract from the experience. Stunningly photogenic medieval streets. Well worth...More

There is no parking in the center. There are two pay parking lots on the outskirts. In order to take your car to the center of town you have to purchase a permit and it is only good for 30 minutes. Just enough time to unload... More
