5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The place is about a 10 minute walk from the tram and it wasn't too hard to find as Jan (the owner) gives you directions. It's not in the main touristy area but the tram takes you to old town in about 15 minutes and run relatively often. The place is small but very well maintained and warm (it snowed a little during our visit). There is morning breakfast with hot food which is tasty and Jan is happy to provide you with tram tickets at cost. The room was spacious enough, the water pressure was good and we were not cold. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend staying here.

We had a very nice stay at this place. The breakfast was by far the best we had in Europe. It included eggs, sautéed vegetables, and sausages (you must try the sausages they were amazing!). I love that they include typical local dishes and pastries. They arrange a taxi to pick us up from the airport, which I highly recommend doing. The rooms are basic but very clean and spacious. The Wi-Fi work very well in the room, which was a problem in other B&B, where it only worked in the lobby. The B&B is located about 15-20 min tram ride. The stop for the tram is about 10-15 walk. This is the only down side, I wish it would have been closer to the tram. They provided us with bus/ tram tickets which was very convenient.

Jan is a wonderful host, very helpful with tips to see the city. At 64 Euro per night we thought it was a good value. It is maybe a 10 minute walk to the tram stop that goes directly to the Old City, a 20 minute ride. Stayed 3 nights. The breakfast was quite nice and varied day to day. There was always a hot meat dish such as sausage, cold meats and eggs. The best part of breakfast was the home made desserts. We had apple pie, blueberry muffins, and other great things that Jan's wife made. We did have a problem finding the place because we took the wrong bus. If you take the bus, you need to get on the 170, 196 or 197 which all stop a short walk away from the B&B.

Dear guest,
thank you for your feedback.
We are truly sorry that you ran into problems with the public transport and as a result it led into only "very good" instead of "excellent" experience for you.
We always provide our guests with information regarding public transport but in this case we didn't update the bus number which led into confusion and we are very sorry for that. I can assure all our guests that we updated the information we provide so there won't be any future misunderstanding.
Thank you for your stay.
Yours Sincerely

Well where to start .. Kept wondering whats so excellent about this place on trip advisor.. Prague was last on my list a 5 night stay.. When i reached, from that moment i got the answer, we were welcomed in the most warmest way , we had hugee luggage but jan was so sweet he helped us with the bags upstairs, next as we reached in evening we were given wonderful coffee with amazing sweetdish which jarmila made for us..we were tired didnt go out , and asked jan if we could get something( mind it we are strict vegetarians) jan prepared amazingg dinner for us .. The next day in the morning we were surprised with mouth watering specially made vegetarian food, which continued every morning :) prepared by jan keeping in mind abt my and my sisters likes:) well i fell sick reaching prague, thanx to my walk in the rain in salzburg :( so i was down with fever and very bad throat, jan had been soo considerate and helpful all the while during my stay about my hralth guiding medicines, keeping hot water seperately for me, trust me i was so touched.. U can plan your tours with jan, he helps you out with just everything right from taxi tours food just name it :)
The tram stop is about ten mins walk and another 15 mins to reach to the center trust me from tram its a straight road very easy...
The house is exactly what you see in the pictures, rather moree beautiful and much much cleaner then u cld expect, im a cleansiness freak, and i could hardly find even a spot of dust or dirth in the house
the price you pay is much much less for a home like this.. If i ever come to prague and get a complimentary stay in intercontinental, trust me i will leave that for GJ RESIDENCE ..you have to be here to believe me :) i believed the above reviews after being here :) unless u want to stay right in the center , spend so much money for expensive hotels to just sleep, this is just the perfectttt place... Dont give it a second thought :)

We spent 4 wonderful days in Prague at Residence Na Vinohradu. This small family-run 5 room hotel is located in a safe Czech neighborhood about 10-15 minutes from downtown by tram. Innkeeper Jan was absolutely wonderful to us, providing everything we requested, including excellent instructions on how to get from the airport to the inn (easy), tram tickets each morning, and all the help and suggestions we needed to plan our days in Prague. Getting downtown was a breeze...a short 10 minute walk to the tram stop. Prague public transport is excellent. The room was clean, roomy, and comfortable. The wifi worked great; we didn't try the wired connection. Breakfast was great, and they even had a small bar area downstairs for our evening nightcaps. We enjoyed eating at a couple of great inexpensive local restaurants within a couple of blocks of the hotel and meeting the "locals". This property is a gem and if you like getting away from the Hilton/Hyatt/Holiday Inn crowd and want to experience Prague at the local level, you will want to check this place out. We definitely will book again if we come back to Prague. Thanks Jan.

This B&B is not located in the centre of Prague but the centre can be easily reached by tram number 17. Getting to the B&B from the airport by public transport has been easy with the directions Jan provided us. The B&B offers a welcoming environment: the courtyard leads to the breakfast room and you have direct access to the rooms on the upper floor by stairs. Our room was very spacious, with TV, sofa, fan and free Wi-Fi. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Jan with tea and cake and he gave us some useful information about the most interesting places to visit. Throughout the stay Jan has always been helpful providing information about the city, public transport and taxis. The buffet breakfast offered a variety of sweet and savory and was different every day.
Hospitality and friendliness that only a family B&B can offer.

This is a wonderful hostage. The owners and their relatives are very kind and they want that you enjoy Prague. Jan gave us excellent advices and treated us very well. We are grateful for his attention. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The residence is near the city and you can reach the public transport in few minutes.
