“Good location, rooms and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We stayed here as a group of 10 for two nights. Rooms vary in size, but ours was large and comfortable. The included breakfast was good. The pension is located at the edge of town, but only a short walk from the main square. We ate dinner one night at Don Julius, not in the guide books, but highly recommended.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

We were very surprised at the size of our room, which was on the corner of building, one flight up stairs. We had views of a little bridge one side, and the river the other. Very pretty. The bathroom was big, and a great size bathtub (big enough for two!!) Bed was very comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful, and breakfast which is included was good. Great location, only a short walk into market square. Even though we did not get to eat at the restaurant, we were told by fellow travellers that it was very good. Would definitely stay again,

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.
