Penzion Onyx
Ranked #52 of 142 Cesky Krumlov B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We stayed at Penzion Onyx on August 20, 2013 unfortunately only for 1 night....

Our stay here was flawless (as mentioned in other reviews before this). The garden (I would say "yard" right Peter? haha) was immaculate and the inside of building, from the reception area, to the dining room, to the rooms themselves were spotless and very comfortable. Even the breakfast is setup with care and not a thing is out of place.

Peter and Daniella are fantastic hosts and made us feel at home and went the extra mile to accommodate us having a late transfer out of Cesky Krumlov after we had already checked out. There is a lot of pride of ownership here that doesn't exist in many accommodations.

This is a first class place to stay and the 10minute walk to the castle-area and the centre of C.K. is easy and we found it very refreshing to return after a busy day to a quiet comfortable oasis.

Arrival at Penzion Onyx is the start of a great experience. Peter & Daniela's directions are perfect, very clear and easy to follow. We arrived by Student Agency bus from Prague and wheeling suitcases it was an easy walk to Penzion Onyx. We are in our mid 60s. The road follows the Vltava river so it is impossible to get lost. For guests arriving by car there is plenty of off street parking.
We were warmly welcomed and shown to our very clean and comfortable room, which overlooked the sundeck. Peter & Daniela have thought of everything, including tea & coffee facilities and a well stocked honesty bar fridge in the room. Our bed was very comfortable and our room quiet ensuring a restful sleep.
As we were anxious to explore this charming town, Peter provided a map on which he marked recommended restaurants and directions. From Penzion Onyx it is a pleasant 10 minute walk into Cesky Krumlov. One evening we returned to town after dark about 9 pm to see the castle illuminated, and felt very happy walking back along the well illuminated road.
Each evening we were welcomed back with a cosy fire in the lounge area where there is a bar where you can buy drinks or a coffee. This was very welcome as we visited during very wet weather, although this in no way diminished our enjoyment.
Breakfast is served in the conservatory overlooking the garden. It is very comprehensive buffet catering to all tastes.
This penzion is great value and warmly recommended.

Room Tip: We had a double room shown with mauve floral quilt on the penzion's website. All the rooms look...

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at Penzion Onyx in Cesky Krumlov. The room was extremely clean and the breakfast was delicious. The Penzion is about a 10 to 15 minute walk to downtown (mostly along the river). It is also about a 15 minute walk downhill from the train station. The place is very quiet and comfortable so it's easy to get a good night sleep. We were provided with a map of the city and very good restaurant recommendations. If you don't mind the short walk downtown, I highly recommend this Penzion.

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Onyx visiting the lovely UNESCO World Heritage site of Cesky Krumlov (Krummau) in Southern Bohemia - which boasts the second largest castle complex, after Prague, and an enchanting mix of architecture.

A very peaceful stay in a B&B just outside of town. A short 15 minute walk along the river and you're in the Old Town with it's plethora of restaurants and shops.

Onyx is easily accessible and has secure parking. Good breakfast although nothing sumptuous, but the dining room is bright and inviting.

Peter and Daniella are engaging hosts as well. Nice rooftop seating to sit in the afternoon sipping a wine or beer.

home-made atmospere, great service, fire place, good breakfast, interlocutor at evenings, everybody knows English here, attention to every detail. Still a bit far from center but 700 metres will not make sence.

Recommend!

I loved Cesky Krumlov and Penzion Onyx was a good home base. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at ease, and the furnishings are comfortable and tastefully decorated. I wish I had booked longer, but there is so much more to see in the Czech Republic. Would definitely come back to Cesky Krumlov and would stay at Onyx again.

We stayed 3 nights here, and would have been happy to stay longer. This is a great place to stay when visiting beautiful Cesky Krumlov. We received a warm welcome from Peter and Daniella and we felt more like we were visiting friends than staying in a B&B. It was great to be able to make tea and coffee in our room - not that common in Europe. Our room was excellent in every way and the gardens are lovely. It is not in the old city, but not that far away - a few minutes drive to one of the parking areas or a short walk. Breakfast was great and Peter was ready to suggest places to eat as well as places to visit in Cesky Krumlov and the surrounding country. Of course, as mentioned by others, having an English host is a real bonus in this country, because outside Prague it is not that common to have anyone speaking English. German is the second language for many Czech people.
