“Fabulous city, great hotel, wonderful location”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Spent one night at the Pension Barbakan. Too short! Fantasic large room, great location. I recommend doing the rafting on the river, which you can rent just a few feet away from the hotel's door. Hotel staff attentive and room clean. Beautiful views of the river and the bridge. Highly recommend!

We stayed here for two nights in May. We had an exceptionally large room with two windows which was filled with antiques. Five minute walk to every thing in town and maybe ten minutes to the Castle. A short walk 5-8 minutes to the bus stop which is the only way to travel to and from Prague.Michaela Slamova was very helpful in educating us on the Student Agency bus service to Cesky Krumlov The room was very clean with comfortable bed. The breakfast was included and very good. Reasonable rates and we would highly recommend this pension

I just took one night at Pension Barbakhan for my weekend. The location is really good , 15-20 min from train station and 5 min walk from the pension to the city landmark. The room is clean, staffs are friendly and very helpful. Tourist information here is very informative. If you can not find the place ,just have some talk with them

Room Tip: Just one thing is wi-fi in my room (sigle room on the second fl. in another house). The signal is no...

We stayed for 1 night at the Pension Barbakan. It has a good location at the entrance of Cesky Krumlov and on the banks of river Vltava. One of our rooms had the view of the river and it was great, but the other that did not have the view was a bit stuffy. The staff is very nice there. It is also supposed to have a good restaurant, but we could not eat there as it was closing early due to their having finished with a large festival.

Room Tip: Take a room with a river view.

I took a couple of days off work and went to Cesky Krumlov with my wife. Friends had stayed at Pension Barbakan and found it good. We didn't know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. There are a lot of pensions in Cesky Krumlov and the streets are a maze but Barbakan was relatively easy to find. Reception hours are limited but check in was simple and our (standard room) was a delightful surprise - clean, big and airy with masses of storage space (and an in-room safe). The bathroom was large with a large shower stall (unusual in Europe). Also, a refrigerator was outside in the hallway for storage of cold drinks, etc. Breakfast was served in a small room on the ground floor and was more than adequate. Only one suggestion for improvement - a couple of hooks in the bathroom door to hang towels on would be welcome.

We stayed in the deluxe room on the top floor, a very spacious,  quiet room with views  over the Vltava River.   There are pine floors, which squeak like the dickens, and heavy, all pine furnishings which gives the room a definite Czech look.    Unfortunately there is no mini fridge or coffee maker which we think is an oversight.     The wifi was really hit and miss, and the breakfast could be improved.   Despite these minor issues, this  is a well located, clean and welcoming place to stay and it's great value for the money.    We would certainly recommend the Pension Barbakan.

We had a wonderful 2-night stay in Pension Barbakan. Fantastic location. Really friendly receptionist who spoke fluent English. We were fortunate enough to have a car park directly in front of the main building. Highly recommend.
