The house and sleeping rooms are OK. Bathroom in most of the rooms is much too small. There are almost no facilities to put your clothes away.
The breakfast is average and definitely not worth the price. Filling up the food seems to be a big problem and will be postponed as much as possible. At the start e.g. 5 sandwiches for 6 persons, never filled up, the same with bread, meat and cheese. The owners are selling the house and I think they are not interested anymore in the quality they have to offer to the guests. They say you can walk next to the river to get to the city but in fact you follow the main road with a lot of traffic during the whole day. The river is 5 meters down and 10 meters away from the road, so the way is not that idyllic as they purpose. They only change the towels after 4 days and they put of the central heating almost the whole day, so in the morning you still have wet towels from the day before. Without any warning, they count 5% plus when you are not paying cash. They say that it’s written in the book from the hotel you can find in your room, unfortunately for them it wasn’t written in every book in every room, so they have to pay us back after a big commotion and arguing. When you pay by card it’s with an over aged system I last saw on a Greek Island more than 15 years ago. I wouldn’t recommend the pension to anybody, much overprized. There are lot of better places to find in Cesky Krumlov than this. The husband seems to be a good guy but we only saw him once in 5 days, he seems to be ill. The lady of the house was not spontaneous, she “acted” to be friendly and did her best to stay away when she needed to fill up the food, her sister, who did the reception when we arrived, didn’t speak or understand much English or German. No wonder there were almost no reservations during our stay. The pension and the garden have a great potential but the management needs a fresh wind.
