“Great pension for decent price in the heart of Prague.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2009

This is about pension Holiday Home in Prague’s Vinohrady. I’ve been staying there whenever I come to Prague since 2005 and love returning. It’s like coming home. The rooms are not luxurious, but are clean, very cozy and comfortable. We stayed there now with my husband a couple of weeks in August and then most of October and we can definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a quiet place in a very quiet part of the city. Even though it’s only a two-minute walk to either Metro or Tram stop, the street is quiet and green. Yet it’s so close to the centre of the city and all its sights thanks to the excellent transportation to all parts of Prague from the nearby Mirove Namesti (Square). There are many shops and restaurants “just around the corner”, so to speak. The Pension as such is very clean, safe, and the staff is friendly, speaking pretty good English. The buffet breakfast has a great choice of baked goods, cereals and cold cuts. Over all, we can highly recommended the Holliday Home and hope to return there ourselves soon. We honestly can not remember anything we would not like here.

The pension is situated in a quiet residential area but only 5 - 10 minutes walk from Wenceslas Square. The building is about 100 years old and the lightest rooms are on the top floor(s). Stairs are a bit of a climb so you need to be fairly fit and mobile - there is no lift. A non smoking double room is €57 a night during high season, smoking rooms are slightly higher. You can also have a single room, 3 bedded or 4 bedded rooms.

Staff in reception are very helpful and the young lady that was on most days speaks good English. Keys are provided to all guests so they can come and go as they please.

Towels are changed almost every day, they are a bit rough so if you are used to soft fluffy towels you may prefer to bring your own. Personally, I found it saved £s on exfoliator! En suite bathrooms are provided and the shower was powerful with plenty of hot water at all times of day.

Beds are fairly firm but the feather pillow was very soft and a thin quilt is provided. It is a very quiet area and we all slept very well during our stay.

Each landing had an area with a table, four chairs, full size refrigerator and a sink unit with electric kettle. Crockery, glasses and cutlery is provided and the area is shared by 3 rooms. Really useful if you want to do your own catering at lunchtimes.

The breakfast room is in the basement, which was bright and clean. Breakfast is the usual continental fayre - muesli, cornflakes, yogurt, cold meat, cheese, rolls and toast, tea, coffee and orange juice and sometimes hard boiled eggs. Plenty to fill you up!

We ate at a restaurant called U Draka on more than one occasion, which served good food and was good value. Better still it is just around the corner! Their steaks are excellent.

Most of the major sites are within walking distance but the trams run regularly and are inexpensive. You can buy tickets at reception or at the tobacconists next door. Tickets vary in duration, for example you can have a ticket that lasts 60 minutes. You validate the ticket onboard the tram via the machines provided. Trams 22 and 23 will take you to Prague Castle.

If you like the theatre you really are spoilt for choice. We went to the Prague National Theatre on the Vitava River embankment to watch the ballet. It was the first ballet we had seen and it didn't disappoint. The theatre itself was also spectacular. Also worth a visit is the Municipal House Concert Hall and Exhibition Centre - a fantastic art nouveau building. They conduct guided tours through some of the halls at 12, 2pm and 4pm. One of the rooms is decorated with work by Alfons Mucha. I would run out of space if I listed all the things to see, suffice to say that Prague is well worth a visit and you will not be disappointed.

Have just returned from a great six day stay in Prague at the 'Holiday Home' pension. Thought the hotel was very clean and although it was definitely basic it was great value for money. No frills but extremely central and just a minute from both metro and tram stops. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and seemed to speak a variety of languagues (English included!).
Would definitely recommend this hotel for its great value and location and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

P.S. Just up the road and round the corner is a restaurant called Udraka - very good food and fantastic value - cost us just £16 for three adults and a bottle of good wine!

A lovely clean, neat, basic hostel with good facilities. It has a good location and is within walking distance of the edge of the old town (about 15 mins walk). If that's too far for you, metro and tram stops are just around the corner. We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed it.
