Cheep in all the aspects
Posted May 13, 2015
Hotel Špičák is a "traditional" OREA chain outdated style hotel. We got a good deal on our booking, but after arriving to the hotel we understood why. First impression after arriving at reception is nice, we were welcomed by two reception ladies and overall experience from the check in was pleasant. The staff generally doesn't speak very good English though and if you don't speak Czech or German you might have some communication challenges. This is where the good stuff ends... After arriving to the room we realized the TV set was missing, however we found the list with the TV channels on the desk :) We informed reception and they brought one in the evening. Careful on the balcony, the wooden floor is not properly fixed to the floor. There is NO electricity outlet in the room!! This goes together with the style of this hotel, 30 years ago (that is probably when this hotel was last updated) people didn't travel with cell phones and tablets, but now we do!! and if you want to charge your devices, you need to take turns with your wife/room mate. You still have to unplug the lamp on the desk next to the TV (if you have one) in order to get at least one socket for charging. Breakfast does not seem very fresh and the buffet dinner either. Probably best part is that there is a sister hotel on the top of the hill (Hotel OREA Horizont) where you can go and have breakfasts and dinners (they are much better) and they don't charge you anything extra, you can also use their swimming pool.
