“Not very understanding of a state of emergency in Czech Republic”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

I had a reservation for this Pension and had to cancel due to a state of emergency and no transportation to the city that this pension is in. I called after I found out about the state of emergency, but it was not within it's 48 hour policy to cancel. The state of emergency was declared yesterday in Prague and the trains halted to the western part of the country They refused to consider my situation that I could not get there, because of the flood. I have no control over the government policy to declare a state of emergency nor stopping train service to the west. Sure we all have policies, but a national disaster, where people have lost their lives should be considered. I travel very often and I have never faced a situation like this with not an ounce of consideration for my situation. Basically it was tough luck!

Been here twice now winter and summer whilst traveling by car from UK to Ukraine and back.
Its a little gem neatly tucked away but within easy walking distance of the centre.
Simple and clean place with great staff who actually make you feel welcome.
See you again soon.

I travel regularly to Olomouc for work at the University and always ask to stay at the Křiva. All the positive points in other reviews are ones that I would endorse, particularly the excellent simplicity of the furnishing of the rooms, the cleanliness, the charm of the proprietor and his staff, the excellence of the breakfast and the convenience of the hotel for the city centre and (for me) for the University. The wireless internet is normally also excellent, but had a few problems on my last stay.

Olomouc is the most delightful of the many delightful cities and town of the Czech Republic, and this is the most delightful hotel. What more does one need to say?

Penzion Cafe Kriva is a great place to visit the quaint town of Olomouc. It is VERY clean, the staff is helpful and everyone (at least) understands English. Breakfast is included in the price of the room and is very good...hot breakfast offerings are on the menu. Probably the best thing about Penzion Kriva is its location. It is a very short walk to some of the main tourist attractions, such as the Trinity Column and the Astrological clock and to some of the restaurants reviewed on travel advisor, especially,Moravska Restaurace and Moritz microbrewery, which I also recommend. Other sights to see, such as the Cathedral, the Diocesan Museum and the Bishop's Palace are a bit further away, but it is certainly still possible to walk to these sights also. One draw back for some travelers during summer months might be that there is no air-conditioning. However, the pension is in on a very quiet side street and, with the windows open, the room was comfortable for me and I was not disturbed. However, light sleepers who require air-conditioning might have some problem.

This hotel is located just on the edge of the restored downtown area, 3 minutes walking from the main square. You can get there by car but you will need a good map or GPS to find it because it is a little bit hidden. There is some public parking nearby and the hotel staff gave us a hotel flyer to place in the window. We had selected a 4-person room (4 adults) which turned out to be a beautiful suite with two separate bedrooms (one room also had table and chairs and a couch as well), plus a full bathroom and fridge. There was no elevator. The included breakfast - prepared based on your choice of various options - was simply excellent. The staff was very helpful. At Euro 125/night, I consider this hotel HIGHLY recommended.

Pension Kriva is conveniently located at the edge of the old town. It's relatively quiet given it's location in the center of town. We walked to all the sites within a few minutes.

The hotel is modern, with large rooms and large bathrooms. I especially liked that there's a small entry way to the room with a door to the bedroom. This insulates the room from normal hotel noise which was pretty minimal as there are only a few rooms. I'm a light sleeper and was not bothered by noise from other rooms or the hallway. Our room was attractive with plenf put our stuff.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great with cooked eggs. I had a mushroom omelet that was fluffy and delicious.

Other things to consider:
With the windows open, you can hear the traffic from the ring road at one end of the block and the noise from the cafe at the other. You can still hear these with the windows closed but it's muted enough to sleep and i'm a light sleeper. Something to consider if you stay in warm weather as there's no air conditioning and it would be uncomfortable to sleep with the windows closed.

The free parking was not always available. We had to park in another area which had it not been the weekend would have been impractical as we would have had to load the meter every few hours.

The window blinds are insufficient to block the morning light. We had to wear eye masks if we wanted to sleep past sunrise.

Room Tip: I'd avoid the corner room over the breakfast room as it over looks a cafe. Not specially noisy...
