I was looking for a place with parking in Prague because I was driving from Berlin and I could not find a place close to the Prague Castle and Old Prague which also has parking for a reasonable price, until I found this place on Tripadvisor.
I contacted the pension and booked a room for 4 people (my spouse, my sister and my father). Prague was the last city I visited in my one-month trip around Europe and I should say that this place was the best place I stayed in during my travel given its reasonable price. Our room was very clean and quite big, with a reasonably big and very clean ensuit. There were also two nice comfy rocking chairs in the room with a small table, and a small fridge. As I mentioned, that also had secure free parking at the back, and also free wireless with very good speed.
The guy who is running the place, Petre if I remember correctly, was very friendly and nice. He explained everything in details to us and was very helpful. The price you pay also includes a great breakfast which includes cold meat, cheese, butter, nice bread, all different kinds of jam, different kind of cakes, yogurt, juice, coffee/tea, etc. They sell tram tickets there which is very handy, for the same price you can get it outside. I didn't use some of my tickets and they were kind enough to get it back. They also have a big fridge with all sort of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and whenever you felt like drinking a beer or something, you can get whatever you want and just write it on the piece of paper on the board that keeps your balance.
Regarding proximity to city attractions, the tram stop is literally in front of the pension. It takes you 8-10 minutes to Prague Castle and 15 minutes to Old Prague. If you are coming back to pension late at night (after 12), there are night trams that you can take which will bring you to the pension, however it take a bit longer.
I would definitely stay at this place again and I would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a reasonably cheap and very clan place to stay in Prague with great service.
BTW, despite the other review, I had no problem with the bed and slept like a baby, I guess people have different tastes.
