Competition must be stiff in Cesky Krumlov because this pension was immaculate and special. By far the nicest place we staying in a 3 week trip with 5 different rentals. Excellent location. I give this our wholehearted recommendation.

A small family run pension located in the historic centre of the town of Český Krumlov. The room was nice and clean. A big and clean bathroom with bathtub. The staff is nice. No breakfast provided but a nice, tiny bakery is just downstairs. Actually the check in and check out counter is the souvenir shop. If you leave earlier than the opening hours, you only have to leave the keys in the mail box.

I stayed in Pension Galko for three nights in early May, checked in a shop at the ground floor of the building. The staff was very friendly, location was excellent - in the centre of the town, opposite the Egon Schiele Art Centre. The price I paid was excellent too - something like 38 EUR for the whole room which was equipped with bathroom (quite spacious shower), small flatscreen TV, satellite and digital TV box. Had a great time in Cesky Krumlov and felt very well when staying in Pension Galko. Highly recommended.

We prefer apartment accommodation for the extra space and self-catering, often cheaper than hotels as well. Pension Galko did not disappoint. Check-in was at the gift shop counter on the ground floor, good thing we got there before they closed or there may have been problems. We were given a front door key to let ourselves into the building after hours so that wasn't an issue. We were able to park in the street for long enough to take our luggage up then had to move the car to a free car park (an empty plot of land about five-ten minutes' walk away with a locked gate for which we were given a key).
The apartment was very spacious with a large living/dining/kitchen area which also had a double bed. There was a separate bedroom with twin beds and a large bathroom. Everything was very fresh and clean, I would think recently renovated. There were washing machine hookups in the bathroom but no machine, possibly that will be next on the renovation list :-)
About the only downside was very noisy tourists walking past late at night, but that's not the fault of the pension. If noise was an issue for you then the bedroom at the rear of the apartment would be very quiet.
No meals were included but there are plenty of restaurants nearby including some which serve breakfast, and there's a little grocery not far away where you can get supplies to self cater.
This property would not suit someone who could not climb at least one flight of stairs and negotiate a few steps up to the bathroom or bedroom.
If we returned to Cesky Krumlov we would definitely book Pension Galko again, wouldn't bother looking elsewhere.

Stayed at Galko for a week with the family. We rented top two apartments (1 and 2) and they were clean, well equipped and close to the action, but not as loud as other locations in the town.
If you are looking at Galko as an option for your trip, bear the following in mind (as it is not clear on their website) Apartment 1 has a double bedroom downstairs and one in the loft, it also has a double bed in the main living room, so although it sleeps six, if you filled it up, not all would have privacy.
Apartment two has a double room in the loft, and double in the kitchen.
All of apartments 1 and 2 have very little headroom, so tall people will need to stoop a lot.
As a whole, Cesky Krumlov is well and truly worth a visit, a completely spectacular place.

We took a family group of 9 people to stay in apartments 1 and 2 at the Galko Pension for 7 nights (most folks stay a couple of nights). For the cost (500CzK/ £17 per night per person) it was great value. The apartments are well-equipped but none-too spacious, although they have a great position on the edge of the old town, close to restaurants and bars, within five minutes walk of the Castle and the Bus station. We had the wto larger rooms and the remaining apartments that sleep 2 people looked really nice, as well. Patrons were pleasant and good to deal with by e-mail. We travelled by bus to CK but free parking space is available at Galko if you need it. Highly recommended.
