“Good rooms, excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Right next to main town, but still able to pull up in front to drop your luggage. Rooms are good, though the stairs up to them are a little tight. Clean and well taken care of. The staff do speak excellent English and the breakfast was good, too.

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.

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.
