“Like staying in an apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

We stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed the feeling that we had our own little apartment in Prague with having a key to the front door. The room was light and airy with big windows over-looking the street, a massive bed and nice firm mattress, table and chairs and enough space for me to do yoga in the mornings. The furnishings are homely and simple with beautiful old stripped timber. The breakfasts were 'help yourself' to a choice of cereals, fruit, breads, cheeses and meats, juices and teas in a nice light basement room. Plenty of hot water and cosy rooms at night. Only grouse was that the rooms weren't serviced so we had to ask for more toilet paper. Its a half-hour walk into the centre of Prague but there are trams and metro close by and plenty of 'non-touristy' shops to enjoy on your walk anyway.

I have been to Pension Beetle 4 o 5 times already and it never disappoint me.
The rooms are tidy and clean, the breakfast is excellent and the atmosphere is very familiar.
The location is perfect, very quite street in Vinohrady, my favourite quarter of Prague and there is a good quality/price ratio.
I strongly reccomend it!

The are 2 good things about this pension: location - 10 min to walk to the metro and about 5 to a tram. The second thing is that it's surprisingly quiet there. There is a park with a wonderful view behind the building. I showed up @8:20 p.m. and was told to pay extra 200 krons for being late. Well, my plane was late. There is nobody on the reception after 8p.m. - you'll have your own key to the front door.

The rest is pretty average: the room, the breakfast, the service. Coffee is terrible.

Stayed at this pension for 3 nights and loved it. Our room is big and had an adjoining room (didn't use) next door a large hallway and a great big bathroom. It was like a suite. Its about a 30 minute walk to Prague center, but there is a subway station about 10 min walk away. We always walked to the city center because there are so many restaurants, bars,shops and churches along the way. The area is safe, there are plenty of restaurants around the hotel. The breakfast was great. Lots of different cold cuts and breads to chose from. There is even a a little courtyard in back to sit or eat breakfast outside. I would most certainly stay here again and would recommend to everyone.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights for a total cost of 70 euros. Having come from a hostel in London the Pension was a welcomed oasis. The shower was what we liked to call "American sized" (large) with an equally large bed, nice vintage furniture, and quiet. The Pension is located 10 to 15 minutes by public transportation (easy) from the center of Prague. The breakfast wasn't amazing but not bad considering the price and I will say I didn't leave hungry. Would definitely stay here again based on the price, ease of access, and cleanliness.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2009

We knew we had paid for more than what it is worth at 1400Kc a night. As we had booked the room way too early and had agreed to the price, we couldn't do much...

They gave us Room 10 (a spacious room) to compensate, but I didn't quite like the room. However, I do like the breakfast room, very cozy.

Breakfast, nothing much to expect. Everyday you see cheese, ham, bread, juice, fruits... Worse, no EGGS!!! What is breakfast without eggs???

Having said that, the counter staffs had been helpful, courteous and friendly enough...
