We checked into Hotel Edward Kelly also known as Hotel Alchymy. The room included breakfast from 8a to 10a. We went to the dinning room at 9:15a and there was not any eggs only hot dogs and cereal with some bread and juices, coffee and tea. At 9:30 I asked if there would be any more eggs and she looked...

Recently renamed Hotel Edward Kelly Riverside, we have stayed in this hotel four times in the last three years. The location is fabulous - right on the Vltava River, below the castle. Six of the rooms have river and castle views - worth the premium. This 600 year old building has been tastefully updated without losing its heritage feel. Large...

The location of the Alchymy is exactly what most guests coming to Cesky Krumlov want to have...in the old town, by the river with castle views. It was exactly what I was after. Being located in a heritage protected area has some downsides which you should be familiar with though. Firstly no cars are allowed in, so if you have...

The hotel, as the name suggests, is right on the river. It is in an old building so don't expect a lift, so bear that in mind if you have large bags or stairs are a problem for you. The room (room 10, atic) was big and spacious, and seemed to have been updated recently. The bathroom was big, with...

First trip to CK back in April 2013, so this review is a little dated. Wife and I weren't quite sure what to expect in CK, but decided that it was worth the effort to get there. Booked a driver through CK Shuttle (excellent service) from Linz train station to CK. Booked Hotel Alchemy Riverside after reading reviews here. CK...

We enjoyed our 2 night stay in room 6 overlooking the river and castle. Huge room with separate loo and bathroom...old furnishings but clean. We were shocked to discover our room hadn't been cleaned at all on our return one afternoon but it was quickly dealt with when someone appeared at the front desk. The desk is not manned much...

broken toilet seat, empty soap dispensers, no maid service during stay, worst breakfast ever-anywhere, no staff on site after 7:30, no where to sit outside your room as cafe and terrace locked up and gated at 7:30. dirty floors in rooms. no elevator. dilapidated stairs. no air conditioning. windows didn't open. NO WAY it gets 4*, maybe 2.

Very nice place for a short romantic stay in that amazing city. Definitely will come back. The provide us with late check-out which was very nice touch. Staff is very attentive and very polite. Just breakfast could be a little bit improved. Thank you!

The hotel has a great location right on the river. We were in room #3 which was HUGE and had 2 bathrooms - one with a toilet and one with a shower. That's just so nice when you're there with someone else. The decorations were so cozy, breakfast was small but good and we just really enjoyed our stay.
