“Be carefull! can be Overbooked !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

we have booked this pension a week before ur trip. on the day of check in we called them confirming we are on the way, the son of the owner said they are waiting for us. however when we arrive rude lady said they are overbooked and booked us place in different pension.
they said it is booking.com fault, happens all the time. i dont believe it ,as it never happen to me before. maybe it can happen when you book it last minute, but not a week before.
i will never come there again!

We're a family of 5 and know Cesky Krumlov well having visited the city and Southern Bohemia many times over the last 20 years. We wanted an pension close to downtown and in a quiet neighborhood with space for the kids. Tomas, his family and Pod Skalkou were all that! After a day of rafting on the river, which is a must if you really want to see the Cesky Krumlov area, the apartment and pool were a perfect change for the kids and us while we waited to head back into town for dinner. Pod Skalkou is an easy and enjoyable 10 minute walk to downtown and the castle. We booked an apartment for 5, which had plenty of room for us and our family. If you want to see the real Czech Republic stay here.

It was our first stay in Český Krumlov and in this pension as well. I received this trip as a gift for my birthday and I must say it was the best gift ever! Nice place, clean room, friendly people at the pension, very friendly guy at the reception :) We also met the owner, it is incredible and friendly lady. The pension is close to the city - 5 minutes by walk. It was no problem to leave the car at the pension despite we check out because we want to spent some more time at the city.
next time again this incredible place !! :)

We stayed there in a group of 4 couples on 7th June 2013. We had an apartment, a room with balcony and two rooms without balcony. There was breakfast included in the package of all rooms except the apartment. Would have liked if it had been included though because the rent was atleast 20% more than the other ones. Its a nice cozy place with a huge garden and a very small swimming pool. Location is lovely and very close to the main areas. Breakfast was fairly decent. We stayed only for one night and had a nice experience. The people managing it seemed helpful enough and we returned with good memories. Wished we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: Choose the apartments or rooms with balcony.

It has been our second stay at this nice and comfortable family-run guesthouse. Despite the cold and rainy weather, we have enjoyed our stay in Cesky Krumlov again. For our first stay we booked a large apartment on the top floor (without a balcony) and this time we have chosen a cosy double-room with a terrace leading to a nice garden with a swimming pool. All rooms have modern design and free wifi connection. The guesthouse is located in a residential area within a walking distance from the historical downtown (it takes only ca 5 minutes to get there). The advantage (compared to some other B&Bs and hotels in the downtown) is that you can easily park your car here. The owner and her son gave us some useful tips on the places, museums, galleries and restaurants which are worth visiting.

We Booked this place online after reading the good reviews they have on the online
bookings websites and the reviews on tripadvisor.

from all the places we booked this was the only one we would not return and would warn people from.

This place states that the check-in is from 13:00 to 17:00.
understanding that we would arrive around 20:00 we emailed them that would arrive later
and will call them upon arrival.

However once there we were forced to pay a 10 Euro late check in fee...
needless to say that no where on the booking web site or their web site was such a term.

further more, they threatened us that if we would not pay the 10 Euro they will not give us the room and we can go look for a different place.

as the time was already late we had to accept their terms and pay.

we also emailed them to reserve us a twin room and they confirmed,
but they had only 1 double bed room left
and once more they said "take or leave it".

we paid them cash as the terms stated but they set our reservation
as a 'no show' which means we would have been charged a full fee
for the room again by the site we made the booking on...

when I was asking them for a tax invoice they refused to give us one and gave us only
a plain note.

I would go to the police if we had more time but we were in a hurry for our next destination..
.
also their check out is until 11:00 so if you need anything or forgot anything in the room
they will not help you even if they are there !
and you will need to wait for 2 hours !!

this place is been run by a mother which speaks no english and her not nice son.
they run that place as a bushiness and have no seance of hospitality.

We stayed here for one week in September, and the place was far above our expectations.
Since temperatures were still high, we chose this place because of the balcony and swimming-pool, although we didn't use any of them, (there was no time, as the town was simply too beautiful ). Though this is a pension, not a hotel, the room was nice, clean and spacious. Far better then the hotel room we had left in Prague. Since "a short distance" from the city center usually means a 30 minutes walk, we were prepared for the worst. But, in this case the website didn't lie! The beautiful city center was just a few minutes stroll away.

The staff (Thomas in this case), was very friendly and helpful, and his English was impeccable. At our arrival he even provided us with a map and pointed out important sights good restaurants and things to do in the area.

Since Cesky Krumlov is full of nice places to have breakfast (and the prices are really low), we chose to eat out, but it is also possible to have a simple breakfast at Pod Skalkou for 4 Euro.

We can highly reccomend this pension to everyone who is lucky enough to find their way to this spectacular place.
