It was a somewhat last minute find on the internet that I found the Balbin Hotel but I saw all the great reviews on TripAdvisor & with a price that suited my budget for my week long stay I decided to take a gamble & go for it. I'm happy to say the gamble paid off for me. For a... More

The neighborhood is a normal one, excellent public transport ( tram and Metro steps away) Wencelaus Sq isa short walk and the train... More

We have been there in May 2016. The best of this hotel is that the people working there are simply fantastic. They helped us in any possible way, with the trolley of our daughter, to get a taxi in time, to bring our luggages and so on. The hotel is very close to tram and metro station, but you can... More

Loved this little B&B. Walking distance to the city. The decor has a modern feel, everything is fresh and well looked after. Staff are friendly and helpful. Make sure you've got a map, it can get easy to get lost in all the little streets, but if you're staying for a few days, you'll find your way around.

The rooms are really cosy and nice. The bed was one of the most comfortable i have ever slept in. The location is really good too. A short walk from the train station and from a lot of nice bars and restaurants

Neighborhood Profile
Vinohrady & Vrsovice
Compared to the medieval heart of Prague, this neighborhood standing on former vineyards developed very quickly in the first decades of the 19th century. Today, it is the place where everyone wants to live, and those who do, are proud of it. With its amazing parks, classicist houses, terrace cafés, artsy bars, cozy restaurants, markets, and vintage and trendy shops, it is a home for people from all around the world. This area blends expats, families, bohemian students and Prague’s hip community. It is a great place for breakfast in the morning, the best lunch places and a buzzing night life. After sundown, stroll down to Vršovice, the new center of the hipster, alternative and gay scenes in Prague.

“The view from Room 501 window is an enclosed 5 story courtyard. Chose another room if you want a better view from your window.”

“Avoid the top floor in summer as the skylight windows don't allow to block the light well - and I assume the heat although that was not an issue when I was there.”
