“Quite expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

We had our friends stay at the Penzion Blanka at the end of October 2013 and we were quite disappointed.

The guest house is clean, spacious. Parking is readily available. It is located in Novy Saldorf, a village known for its wine cellars and wine production. However, it was the services complementing the stay that astounded us.

The first odd practice is that the guest house offers breakfast, but only up to a certain price limit. During my travels, I have never encountered this approach: either breakfast is included or it isn't included in the price.

Secondly, as it was a large family that was accomodated, we all went to the restaurant's non-smoking section to have a light lunch. As the nine-person group was sitting down a table that had no reservation sign, the waiter unpleasantly informed the group that this table was not available and that there are tables available in the front. The front portion of the restaurant is dedicated to smokers and there was only one table for 8. When the waiter was asked why he was sending us to a smoking section, he unpleasantly and rhetorically asked if we saw anybody smoking there. The group was not at all impressed with the behaviour of the waiter and so the group got up and left.

All in all, facilities are good, but the level of service is something left to be desired.

Penzion Blanka is guest house, not hotel. And in the beginning I must admit that we like to stay here with family. The reason is that they provide everything what they promise. It has good location in part of Znojmo Nový Šaldorf what is good starting position to go to wine cellars around. If you don't require stay in town centre, it can be good choice. Blanka is guest house suitable for family-stay as well as for business stay. Cyclist are here welcome and also there are often weddings or parties.

It is easy to find Blanka by car - navigation signatures are good and also car navigation knows the precise location. In front of entrance to guest house is parking lot and other parking lot is in the guesthouse's court. The reception is in the restaurant.

Our 2 bed room was in the 1st floor. From a small room-corridor is entrance to the room and to the bathroom. Our room was large - although we have placed there baby cot, there was still plenty of space. The room is reasonably equiped - TV, mini-bar, kettle, fan (neccesary in the summer). The bed is high and provides comfortable sleeping. The bathroom with shower corner was also large. Everything was clean. There is wifi coverage in all the room.

In the ground floor is situated restaurant. It is the biggest advantage of Pension Blanka. In the summer you can use 2 pleasant restaurant's terraces - one in front of the restaurant in the street and second in the court where it is too calm and relaxing atmosphere. Don't expect here light dishes. The cuisine is typical moravian and I must tell amazing. I mean it is one of the best cuisine in Znojmo. The staff is kind. Restaurant also offer excellent moravian wine and is able to provide also good beer. Prices are good in restaurant. The restaurant is covered by free wifi as well as the rest of guesthouse.

Only one disadvantage of Penzion Blanka is price of accommodation - it is relatively high. In similar price level you can find in Znojmo also hotel accomodation (3* level) - even in the town centre. In summer there is also too hot in rooms and you need to use fan.

If you don't need to stay direct in town centre I can recommend you this guesthouse. It provides comfortable stay. If you are cyclist or if you want to visit wine cellar (the owner offeres its wine cellar nearby) it is great choice. And if you like typical moravian cuisine, you will love restaurant here.

Room Tip: If you can choose - take the room in the 1st floor. It can offer more space than room in the 2nd flo...
