Frequently asked questions

Below are some of the questions we often hear from hotel guests.

How do I get to the hotel?

You can get to the hotel by car, bus, or train:

  • Bus stop 200 m
  • Train station 2.6 km

When can I check in?

As a general rule, rooms are ready at 2:00 pm. If your room is ready earlier (it depends, among other things, on when the guest before you checked out), we can check you in earlier, but we cannot guarantee it. If needed, you can leave your car in the parking lot or leave your bags with us at the reception desk until your room is available.

What time do I have to leave on the day of check-out?

You should vacate your room after breakfast, no later than 11:00 am, on the day of check-out. You may, however, leave your car in the lot until the afternoon or stow your bags with us at the reception desk.

If you do not check out before 11:00 am, we will charge you for another night because we will not have time to prepare the room for the arrival of the next guest.

When is the reception desk open?

The hotel reception desk is open from 8:00 am until 10:00 pm. Check-in is possible until 9:00 pm. You can reach reception staff by telephone 24 hours a day at +420 736 481 003.

In case of late or nighttime arrivals, we will leave you the room key and a diagram showing how to get there. Simply enter the code that we have sent you to gain access to the building and pick up your key. This service must be arranged in advance so that we know to expect you.

Can I check in online without the reception desk?

When we confirm your registration, you will get an email with directions and a link for an online registration form. Once you have filled it out, we will send you an email and text message with a unique PIN code for entry to the building reception area, where we will simply hand over the room key.

How can I pay? How can I cancel?

Payment is possible by cash, card, or bank transfer. The concrete type of payment depends on how you made your reservation (email, telephone, online).

Terms for cancellation can be standard, with the option of your money back, or nonrefundable, with no option of your money back. Concrete terms of cancellation depend on how you made your reservation (email, telephone, online) and when you are scheduled to begin your stay.

In addition, for reservations made through our website or at the hotel reception, we also now accept payment by Sodexo Flexi Pass card, Sodexo Flexi Pass paper vouchers, Fokus Pass, and Darkovy Pass.
