2. Royal Ricc 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Brno Czech Republic
Situated on one of the oldest streets in Brno, the Starobrněnská Street, the romantic Royal Ricc Hotel is right in the historical heart of the city. It offers free Wi-Fi connection in the entire property.
The interior decorations are supplemented with antique furniture and a set of paintings of both modern and old artists. Hotel Royal Ricc is an original baroque house that was built in 1596. It was completely renovated in 1998.
Upon prior reservation, guests can dine in a restaurant specialising in traditional Czech cuisine.
The hotel is located a 5-minute walk from the very famous St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s cathedral. There are many historical monuments and places of interest like Špilberk, a royal castle from the 13th century, and St. James, which is a late Gothic church.
Hotel Royal Ricc is situated right in the centre of the Moravian metropolis Brno on Starobrnenska Street, which is one of the oldest streets in the city. This four-star hotel prides itself on a rich family history reaching all the way back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The name itself indicates the style and quality of the hotel’s services – Royal Ricc offers a cosy and romantic environment with royal services.. The renowned gothic cathedral Petrov, a picturesque Zelny trh (Vegetable Market), and the Spilberk fortress are in the close proximity of the hotel.
Thanks to its location and high quality services, the hotel is much sought after by many important and famous personalities coming to Brno. The hotel is luxuriously furnished and fully air-conditioned. Its interior very gracefully combines functional furnishing with Old Masters paintings and wall frescoes.
Once upon a very different time, Royal Ricc was a gracious Austro-Hungarian era town house; today it is one of the most beguiling, atmospheric and delightful baroque boutique hotels in the Czech Republic. Behind its modestly ornate exterior lies a gem of a 30 bed-roomed hotel exuding old world elegance and warmth. Guests are greeted on arrival in a foyer, ringed by armour suited effigies and photographs of distinguished former guests, with a welcoming glass of champagne. It sets the tone for a delightful stay.
The hotel lounges – and bedrooms – have ornately painted paneled ceilings; stain glass windows, rich carpets and luxurious furnishings creating a romantic elegance. Our room could have been located in a Rapunzel towered castle anywhere in Middle Europe. It had satellite TV, Wi-Fi, and a safe. The bathroom had a bath and shower and was spotlessly clean.
Hotel Ricc was exceptionally comfortable and was a delightful retreat at any hour of the day or night. The hotel’s breakfasts are memorable. The dining room exudes elegance and there is an enormous choice of hot and cold options for breakfast. The hotel is superbly located in the heart of the old town.
Brno isn’t a tourist overrun town but it has an enormous amount of historic attractions from the formidable and once forbidding Spilberk Castle to its labyrinthine galleried undergrounds which hum with cultural and artistic life. We were travelling through Eastern Europe and were drawn to Brno because of its enormously rich history and instantly fell in love with the idea of a hotel like the Royal Ricc having read other Tripadvisor reviews.
It didn’t disappoint. Our two night stay with breakfast cost €80 a night we considered it superb value for money. Travelling anywhere in the Czech Republic consider staying there. You will get a heart-warming welcome from Eliska or Katarina as they offer those glasses of champagne and you will feel a valued guest throughout your stay.
The Royal RICC is a beautiful hotel in the old part of Brno and finds itself within a wonderful historic building. The reception and the rooms are decorated in appropriate styles and you will find lovely frescos and other treasures everywhere you look. Because of its location in the old town, navigation is slightly complex if you have a car and we found ourselves parking on a footpath, unloading our baggage and then parking the car (which is situated not far away, in the basement of the nearby shopping complex).
The rooms have everything you require and are air conditioned in summer. The style of each room is slightly different and in keeping with the lovely character of the hotel. The beds and bedding are terrific and there is plenty of space for 2 cases, as well as the desk and chairs. The shower is over the bath and unfortunately is set extremely low, so it was difficult to feel like I was properly clean, but that was just a minor annoyance.
WiFi operates throughout and there is a lift to get to upper floors, although it is to be noted that there are single steps here and there, so it’s not possible to wheel cases the entire way.
The situation of the hotel means that everything you will want to see is in close proximity. A really enjoyable stay in Brno and I look forward to returning.

Hotel has an excellent location in the old town, just minutes away walking from main attractions of the old town and Spilberk castle.
The external view of the building is impressive and immediately reveals a luxury hotel.
Interior is nice, especially inner courtyard at the reception.
Rooms are very well decorated and spacious. Rooms are perfectly clean and well equipped with just about everything that you need for your stay.
Beds are comfortable and provide good and deep sleep. No noise from the street of from the hallway.
This hotel is, like so many buildings, a former palace of nobility. It is about 2 blocks, or a four minute walk, from the so called “Cabbage Market” Square which is surrounded by old palace buildings and which hosts a daily vegetable vendor market. The location is terrific, on the edge of the old town with easy walking access to everything in Brno and backs up to the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul as well as a terraced shady garden park with a monument to Napoleon.
The entrance to the path walking up to Spilberk Castle is only two minutes away; everything is close by. The hotel is lovely – the lobby is very white, clean, and modern looking with a skylight atrium. It was very quiet when we were there. The staff is professional; David in particular was very helpful, calling us a taxi one day.
The breakfast is buffet style, with a broad set of options. Like many hotels, the buffet tends not to be replenished after 9 am so fruit, smoked salmon, hard boiled eggs, and fresh bread is much more available earlier in the morning. There is a “make to order” omelet station; on our first day, no one was attending to this and several guests loitered and hovered nearby waiting in vain for a cook to take their orders. The next day, when the cook did make omelettes, they were fine.
It would be nice if there were more healthy / low calorie options of fruit and fresh vegetables. Beware of the tour groups that crowd the breakfast around 7:30 am.
The hotel price was beyond reasonable – it cost less to stay here, in the old town in a former palace, than it does to stay in a mid range like the doubletree or a courtyard Marriott in a mid sized US city.
This is a very large suite, with a separate bedroom and large living room. The door opens into the bedroom; the hallway leads to the left and then into the living room. The décor is different; the bedroom is more modern looking, with gray walls and recessed lighting while the living room is more classic traditional in look. The windows are large and recessed; there are drapes and also light opaque curtains that hang about 2 feet in front of the window.
The living room can get hot with the south and west facing windows; there is a chandelier for good light. Wifi is decently fast. There is an alarm clock – finally!
Great quiet comfortable place with the spacious rooms in the beautiful building nearby the old town actions. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Comfortable restaurant serving dishes you wouldn’t find anywhere else (sous vide suckling pig knuckle and foie gras were great). Incredibly designed lobby and rooms. Very warm all over environment.
