The hotel is dated, but to me that added to its charm, it is proper old school, no fancy airs or graces, but you can feel the old school glamour of the hotel slovan and when you walk through the doors it is like you are going back in time. The staff were friendly and the restaurant staff made all food to order for breakfast, rather than put out a full buffet, as there werent many people staying whilst I was there. They were happy to accomodate my request at breakfast and made me fresh scrambled eggs with cheese and ham which was absolutely lovely. Stepping in to the doors of the hotel slovan is like stepping back in time, it is not full of modern luxuries or all singing and dancing, however the staircase is absolutely beautiful. After reading reviews saying the same this is why i chose this hotel as a base while in Plzen, as i love the quirkiness and find chain hotels boring..at the end of the day its somewhere to drop your luggage and sleep! It is close to so many different attractions and pubs, and i found the location very quiet (from a noise perspective), and the bed was very comfy after a long day walking around Plzen. If you want modern facilities this is not the place for you, but if you are after character and something different then i would say book this place...do not expect 5 stars but expect to go back in time and enjoy it..they dont make places like this any more!
