The pension is on the top floor of an old appartment building and you have your own key to the main door, so it feels like... well, a pension from the old days, where you could actually live. I loved coming in the building with the old-fashioned tiles and imagining that I lived there. The place is pretty basic otherwise...

Now I know you get what you pay for but Prague during New Years is sooo expensive so I had no choice! A great location with a short walk to the square and old city. Down sides were the really poor wifi that rarely worked and a filthy shower that had mould in all colors of the rainbow. We got...

Some of the good points are the staff were super happy and friendly. The hotel is was clean and fresh white linen and towels. Location is great and very close to everything. Rooms are a good size with plenty of storage and plug sockets. Downside: Not easy to find, there is no hotel sign outside, you need to follow the...

Nice little hotel about 5 mins walk from Wenceslas Square. Pity there is no reception and the hotel is on the 4th floor and breakfast on the 3rd. I was a bit disappointed with breakfast, I think some little cakes should be added. The room was fine with nice furniture which looked quite new. All in all it was ok...

Flexible English speaking staff. 24hr desk (most places in this price range do not offer this.) Good included breakfast. Fair euro:crown exchange rate. Elevator tiny and jumpy - better to walk the 4 flights but tough with luggage. Cheap minibar/refreshments. Great location.

It is a three star pension but it is great. We stayed in a triple bedroom. It is 5 to 10 minutes walk from city center. Very clean, wifi included, a good breakfast and 24 hours reception. Everyone lovely. If I return to Prague surely will try to stay here again.

Neighbourhood Profile
Vinohrady & Vrsovice
Compared to the medieval heart of Prague, this neighbourhood standing on former vineyards developed very quickly in the first decades of the 19th century. Today, it is the place where everyone wants to live, and those who do, are proud of it. With its amazing parks, classicist houses, terrace cafés, artsy bars, cozy restaurants, markets, and vintage and trendy shops, it is a home for people from all around the world. This area blends expats, families, bohemian students and Prague’s hip community. It is a great place for breakfast in the morning, the best lunch places and a buzzing night life. After sundown, stroll down to Vršovice, the new center of the hipster, alternative and gay scenes in Prague.

“Avoid the top floor in summer as the skylight windows don't allow to block the light well - and I assume the heat although that was not an issue when I was there.”
