From the outside, this orange-colored complex looks like something out of the Cold War with an odd paint job. Don't let that dissuade you though. The place is quite comfortable, the rooms are nice, the staff is most helpful, and the in-house restaurant is excellent. At check-in, we received a 10% discount to eat at the in-house restaurant, which we did both nights. It was both inexpensive and delicious - we especially enjoyed the salmon and the schnitzel dishes. The breakfast buffet was top notch and offered tremendous variety. What impressed me most was the service of the staff. When they realized we had an early return flight (5:30 am) and would miss breakfast at the hotel, they made generous breakfast packages for us to take to the airport. Almost too much food! The only concern with the hotel is that to get to the rooms, you have to haul your luggage up a flight of stairs to the next floor. From there, you can catch the elevator to your respective level. On our first night, the fire alarm went off on the 5th floor. It was after 11:00 pm so many people were already asleep and straggled out of their rooms. We made our way to the lobby where we were told that this unfortunately happened now and then on that floor only. The hotel worker suggested we just ignore it if it malfunctions again. I questioned how we would know if it was not a real fire, but got no answer. Oh well. I would still recommend this place in a heartbeat and if we ever return to Ostrava, we will surely book here again. less
