    Now Clarion Congress Hotel


    The former Hotel Gomel has changed owner and name and has been completely refurbished and modernized in 2011/12. Please ignore all pre-2012 reviews about the Gomel, they are outdated.

    The hotel building is a 15 or so storey skyscraper in the northern city, ten minutes walk from the old town. Convenient location, and good soundproof windows so the large street did not disturb.

    We had buffet dinner in the restaurant - abundant and okay but a bit uninspired, the thrid evening we already knew all varieties they offered. They had fresh salad, a plus which is not too common in Czech restaurants.

    Unique Quality: I had a room on the 6th floor, and I was lucky to get a corner room which was slightly bigger than the other rooms. I particularly enjoyed the view (see photos in the travelogues). The room had two windows and the bathroom another, which turned out to be a big advantage. The windows cannot be opened more than a crack, and having three windows allowed letting some fresh air in; I heard from the others that they suffered from the lack of this option. The rooms have air condition but it was turned off and I hate it anyway. Beds are okay, a bit too soft perhaps.

    The room had a large modern bathroom, perfect - except for the lack of any shelf or similar where to put one's toiletry bag. Ditto for the wardrobe, too small and hardly any space on the shelves to put one's things as most of then were filled with ironing board, safe, extra blanket, and other stuff. The furniture must have been designed by a man...

    In theory there is free W-LAN in the rooms but if it works at all, it keeps breaking down every 5 minutes sharp - I suspect on purpose to make people buy the "premium" internet connection. Free internet PCs are in the lobby.

How to get from Munich to Ceske Budejovice?

by mucik

I'm wanting to go from Munich to Ceske Budejovice on 9 Oct. The trains all seem to leave very late at night and arrive the next morning. I looked at routes through Prague, Linz, and Salzburg. I'd really like to go during the day. Is this possible? How about a bus and where would I find those schedules? Thanks!

Travel Tips for Ceske Budejovice

The Tourist office is Great

by seoulgirl

Go to the tourist office if you need help with anything. They have a huge book full of accomodation to pick from. And they speak and they will call the place for you for around a dollar. It's right on the square.

Budvar vs. Budweiser

by Dabs

I'm not exactly a beer expert, in fact I rarely drink the stuff, so this is just what I've read. Budvar beer, who's original German name was Budweiser, apparently bears no resemblence to the beer sold under the Budweiser label in the US, the American version said to be far inferior to the Czech brand. Tthey are linked, well sort of, German brewer Adolphus Busch adopted the name for his beer when he moved to the US thinking German beers sold better. That predated when the Czech brewers started brewing their version of Budweiser by 6 years, the Czechs and American brewers came to an agreement that the Czechs could call theirs the "original Budweiser" and the Americans could still use the name except for in Europe. The Rough Guide says that you can buy Budvar beer in the US, it's bottled under the name Czechvar. You can try Budvar at restaurants in Ceske Budejovice, the 1st place served Pilsner Urquell but Pavlac served Budvar.

Kratochvile - built for Vilem v. Rosenberg

Kratochvile - built for Vilem von Rosenberg

who was a rich merchant and wanted to have a summercastle in the Italian Renaissance style.
So he ordered this castle from his italian architect Baltazar Maggi di Arogno.

by globetrott

The whole area is rather muddy and the castle is built on thousands of oak-trunks (like in Venice). These trunks have to be kept wet in order to be strong enough to hold the heavy building. That is one of the reasons, why the artificial lake around the castle had to constructed, and will permanentely be supplied with sufficient water.
