“A room with a view - in Cesky Krumlov”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

A lovely holiday in a such lovely town! We had a spacious room there was good to sleep. It was so quiet and fresh. Luckily we didn't pull the blinds down too early in one evening since they had fireworks in the front of the castle. The pension is situated in a short walking distance from the historical centre. Also a walk to a hill to the old chapel with a view over the town is possible and not far. A nice possibility to see the beautiful neighbourhood of the pension too.

The host was most friendly and helpful. Immediately after reservation he contacted us and we felt us most welcome from the very beginning. He gave us good hints and tips where to go, what to see and where to eat. He picked us up from the railway station and drove us back there when we left.

We are used to pay everything with card since nowadays it is the preferale and sometimes the only option in our everyday life. This is not the case in Cesky Krumlov, so be prepared to have enough cash with you :-)

We had a roomin the front with the slanted window. A VERY BRIGHT street ligh was right outside and lighted our room like daylight with no way to cover it. It shone directly on one of the beds..

All the other good things said about this Pension are true.

I would only add that if you have any difficulties walking this may not b the place for you. You can't park in the city and the wonderful places with a view involve far more walking than their "distance from the town" suggest. It is a walking town and lovely but there is no way to see it without a walk down the cobbled stone hill and then the walk only just begins.

Come by bus or train and stay in the city.

Room Tip: If light bothers you do not stay in a front room. (the ones with the view)

Hello and thank you very much for your stay in here.

Maybe you should just pull the blinds that we have installed in all windows. The blinds were changed in the autumn of 2013 for darker due to increased comfort. Blinds or shutters are installed on all the windows in the house because of all the rooms is the same view - towards the old town and castle.

I chose this pension because of its price but when we arrived there (2 couples), we were really surprised! The room was cosy, all dressed in wood, clean, yet functional, had a little whiff of old-fashioned. The owner was really nice, helpful, likes to joke and always available if we needed something (he lives on top floor). The parking is public (free), right in front of the pension. The breakfast was really great, like my grandma used to make - mixed eggs, frankfurters... and I loved their Czech yoghurt and butter! You definitely won't leave for the city hungry! The city centre is 5 minutes walk away. I loved the panoramic view from our room and also from the terrace behind the pension, it was breathtaking in the evening! The terrace was big, with plenty of room and you can have a picnic or a little party of your own in the evening. I would recommend this pension to everyone, and when I go back to Cesky Krumlov, I'll definitely stay here again!

This is a lovely place to stay in Cesky Krumlov - wonderful service (even a lift from the station), lovely views and good breakfast. The room was spacious and had a useful fridge. Great location just a 5-10 minute walk from the old town and very reasonably priced

We found Pension Svet a nice, quiet pension in a good enough location, and an excellent value. Our room was spacious and charming, with cozy wood beams and sturdy furniture. Our host was nothing but charming, from the smiling pickup at the train station to checking train times at checkout (and constant apologies for grey weather).

Indeed, the only blemish we found was the breakfast food, which was frankly terrible. I've lived in the Czech Republic for over a year, and could recognize cheap supermarket cornflakes and 10-cent rolls. Not too impressed.

Nonetheless, I'd recommend Pension Svet as a charming, budget-conscious pension just close enough to the heart of the Old Town to give you a little workout each morning.

Hello, we are glad that you have been with us almost satisfied. Especially with transport from the train station for free. I would like to briefly respond to your complaint. I run this house for 13 years and my main interest is to go out and meet guests sweeten their stay. For your complaint regarding frankly horrible breakfast: Our breakfast buffet includes: at least 3 kinds of cheese, 2 kinds of durable sausages, 3 kinds of further hams, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, seasonal fruit, some sweets, yogurt and cornflakes (yes you are right from Czech supermarket) but the next one is flavored cornflakes (and they're from austria :-)) and some more muesli.. Most of the food we buy from local shops (which unfortunately are not cornflakes) as well as toilet paper. You are already in the Czech Republic for a long time (more than one year) and toilet paper we buy in the local paper shop (manufactured by Harmasan - traditional Czech-Slovak firm), is a 2-ply paper and for your interest costs 6 CZK (22 cents).


We look forward to your next visit and we will try to satisfy you completely

We recently spent two nights at Pension Svet, and were very comfortable in the spacious room we had with a view of the old town and castle. The location is perfect, being a bit away from the city center, but just a five minute walk. Our host Michael was very nice and very helpful and I would highly recommend Pension Svet.
