Transport Marriott Parkotel
Tram #4 or trolleybus # 16 from Marriott (downtown) to Parkhotel (direction Bory). Parkhotel is situated in between the Bory trolley station and the Bory tram station. For the trolleybus, get off at Bory and go back about 150 m along the trolley path and Parkhotel will be on your left hand side.
• If you get lost on the way to Parkhotel, ask local people for directions to a tram #4 or trolleybus #16 terminal, direction Bory (most people know where Bory is, whereas not everybody know where Parkhotel is).
• If you get lost on the way to Marriott, ask locals for directions to Namesti, which is very close to Marriott hotel (Namesti means city center square).
How to buy tickets for Pilsner public transport
There are two independent systems. The electronic (PilsenPass card) system and the old paper ticket system. For short visits we recommend the paper ticket system.
Paper tickets can be bought in vending machines at major stops (e.g. Bory, V sadech petatricatniku, Railway station; coins are needed), special shops at the railway station, the central bus station, newspaper and tobacco shops etc. These tickets cost 12 CZK and can also be bought directly by the driver for 20 CZK.
Single room: €77 Double room: €90
