“Great stay in Olomouc!”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Excellent place to stay in Olomouc! The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable, the location was great (one block from the upper square), and the price was reasonable. The staff was very helpful with advice, the breakfast was good with four different selections, and the laundry service was prompt. One thing – if you are driving a car, it had better be a small one! The entry to the secure parking area is tight.

About two minutes walk from main square, Pension U Jakuba is well located. The room No.4 was very large, equipped with very cozy large sitting area, small (enough) adjacent bedroom, well equipped kitchen, bath + toilet and separate room for luggage. As it is a historic building protected by History Institute the main doors from the street are narrow, OK for horses and carriage, ok for smaller car, no way for large ones. We managed and the parking is very secure. The only problem was the room windows are opened to one of frequented streets (trams just under your nose) and it was a bit noisy when we wanted fresh air. Except that it is 4/5, clean, OK staff, slightly unexperienced.

Room Tip: Probably the rooms inside the building will be much less noisy

I stayed in this Olomouc B&B for one night in May 2012 after not being able to get a room at the Poet's Corner. I was very pleasantly surprised -- the staff was great, the room very clean and very reasonably priced, and the breakfast delicious and plentiful. I would definitely stay again -- also I highly recommend if you are traveling in Czech Republic you visit this beautiful Moravian medieval town!

I went here with my girlfriend for a weekend break to Olomouc and this little place is a great find.

Ideally located to be central, but also in the right place to be quiet it's absolutely perfect.

We checked in and got a room that was accessible by a door on the stairs that led to our own balcony, then to another door and the room itself.

The room was modern, furnished with the basics you would expect and for price that you pay it's of a much higher standard than i was expecting.

The rooms feel secure enogh to leave your things, maybe things have changed a bit since the 2006 review on here, we had no hesitations leaving valuables in our room.

Reception is very friendly and helpful, they made us feel very welcome.

All in all a great little place to visit if you stay in Olomouc, especially if you get one of the rooms with the balcony.

If you're in Olomouc you could do a lot worse than give this place a go. :-)

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are great, the balcony is nice to sit in the sun with , plus they face the courtyard s...

A short walk away from the main square, Pension U Jakuba afforded us a spacious yet oddly designed room - large sitting area, adjacent bedroom, small but not very basic kitchenette, secure car park (accessed through a very narrow door - SUVs or large vehicles need not even try). Our room faced KvEtna 9 street, and this was fairly noisy as the trams rolled directly past the room.

Pension gave a nice warm touch by placing towels and a little sweet on your bed. Friendly staff, quiet location. You get a little kick out of opening the huge gates (as though you are really living there) if you get back after the reception is closed.

I have stayed here twice so far and have been very happy both times.

The first time I stayed here was February to April 2007 - yes, two and a half months! We (3 of us, plus sometimes a fourth) stayed in a large apartment with two rooms, each a queen bed, basic kitchen, bathroom with shower and a toilet. The furnishings were fairly basic, but sufficient. The kitchen had a stove, toaster, fridge and kettle, but unfortunately no microwave nor oven. The rooms are well heated in the winter, but there is no air conditioning for the summer.

At the beginning of our stay, a wireless internet connection was installed in the hotel so we had free internet during our stay - a huge bonus for me because I don't speak Czech, and this gave me access to Australian/English news, tv and radio.

The hotel is located in a very central part of the old town, just 150 metres from the Horni Namesti (main town square).

There is also limited parking at the hotel, about 6-7 spaces (which were sometimes full).

The next time I stayed here was in December 2007. I spent two nights here in two different rooms. The first was a standard double room and the second was an apartment immediately above the apartment I had stayed in previously. Both rooms had the same feel as the first apartment I stayed in. Of course, the double had no kitchen, whereas the apartment did. The double room was a kind of unusual layout, but still comfortable.

I would definitely stay here again. The staff are friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and the location is perfect.

As far as Olomouc goes, it's beautiful. I love it.

  • Liked — Location, free wireless/wired internet (depending on which room you're in)
  • Disliked — No air conditioning (this only matters in the middle of summer)
  • Stayed February 2007, travelled with family
