Excellent location in the middle of the old and new town. Beerhall downstairs, in the same building also Budvar bar, microbrewery, huge beer souvenir shop and museum. Also nearby is Tesco, metro station and many other classic beerhalls (U Vejvodu stays open til early hours, beer still "normally priced").

Friendly staff, good breakfast. I stayed in the room 15. It was on the street side, so a bit noisy and the curtains were not able to keep daylight out of the room. But the room had a bath, luxury by my standards...

We stayed at the Pension U Medvidku for 3 nights in September. We paid a little extra for a historical room - which was huge. Good, clean modern bathroom. Overall we paid $173 AUS per night including a hearty breakfast. Great value.

The pension is located in the Budvar brewery. I am not a beer drinker but the beer was fabulous. Good heart Czech food is also served here. So cheap!

If you are up for a more upmarket meal you cannot go past the Zahrada v opere (Legerova 75, Prague 1 ph 2423 9685) for the best meal. We went 2 nights in a row it was so great.

The pension is close to the train station and it is easy to access all the sites within walking or tram distance.

Would not hesitate to stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at Pension U Medvidku for 3 nights (Jan 26 to 29), we were delighted with it, beds were very comfortable, room was tidied each morning, and towels changed if u wanted - fantastic sized bath, went to the local Tesco & bought some bath oil, after a long day walking around in the cold, the bath was like heaven! For a hotel in the middle of everything, the price was fantastic EUR88/room and included a lovely continental breakfast. As a Tea-Aholic I brought my trusty travel kettle, teabags & long-life milk, as there are no coffee & tea making facilities in the rooms, but little price to pay for a great location. Staff were very friendly, also all Czech people we met. We would definitely use this hotel again and have recommended it to a number of people.

Myself and my partner recently visited Prague for a four night stay. After reviewing most of the hotels in prague we were recomended the U Medvidku as it met all our requirements.

The U Medvidku is a historical pension in a great location. We stayed in room 14 and loved any minute of it. It was easy to book via email after looking at their website. Transfers were also booked through the pension and were reliable and reasonably priced (600k for up to 4 people)

The pension itself is a historical and furniture and decoration is in keeping with the theme. If you are looking for a hotel which will spoil you rotten, this pension is probably not for you. However if you are looking for a reasonably priced, friendly hotel you cannot go wrong with this one.

The room we stayed in was basic (however it worked out that we paid around £55 per night) Double wooden bed (which did squeak but added to the experiance) and wooden chairs which would get a little uncomfortable if you sat there for long periods of time! We just placed the pillows on the chair or sat on the bed!

Breakfast was plentiful and good quality. We even went down as late as 9.45am and there was still plenty of food.

All the staff and friendly and helpful and there are wide range of information leaflets in reception. The beer house and budvar bar that is attached to the hotel were also excellent and reasonably priced.

Location is great. At the top of the road is the tescos and department store and a really great inexpensive pizza place. (slice of pizza and half litre drink around 98k)

The pension is approx 5 mins from Wencelas Square and about 15 mins from Old Town. Also not far from Charles Bridge however, the best time to visit charles bridge is in the evening as it is rammed in the daytime.

My husband and I stayed at Pension U Medvidku for 4 nights in October 2005 after winding down a 3-week stay in Europe. Here's a rundown of the pension:

- The hotel's location is perfect, especially considering the fairly inexpensive price (3.850 cz/night, or $154 US). It is a 3-minute walk to Old Town Square, the Charles Bridge and Wencelas Square in a great neighborhood with good restaurants. Tesco, which is a huge department store, is just a block away. It has a terrific supermarket for stocking up on snacks, drinks, toiletries, etc.

- The room was beautiful and very spacious. We stayed in an historical room, which costs 10% more than a standard room. What we didn't realize is that the only difference between a "historical" and a "standard" is that the historical rooms have vaulted wood ceilings that have been ornately painted ... that's it. The size and location are exactly the same. Save your $$$ and book a standard room.

- The beds are overly firm, the furniture is gorgeous dark wood, and all of the rooms have high ceilings and hardwood floors for a "clean" and minimalistic feeling. The bathroom was large, cleaned daily and had great water pressure. The towels are rough and thin.

- The walls are thin. We could hear our neighbors' conversations, and we could also hear the guests above us walking on the hardwood floors. We could also hear the oompa band and the ruckus from the pension's bustling beer hall starting at about 7:00 until midnight, as well as smell the cigarette smoke, so we were forced to keep our windows closed despite the gorgeous fall weather.

- The pension's beer hall, although touristy and really smoky, serves good food and has great service. Breakfast, which is included in the cost of the room, was served in a different portion of the beer hall, and was excellent. Assorted meats, cheeses, cereals, yogurt, danishes, coffee, tea and juices. Served every morning from 8:00-10:30.

- Free Internet access is provided in the lobby, and the hotel's staff was very helpful, professional and all speak English well.

We would stay at Pension u Medvidku again, but would book a standard room (and cross our fingers for quiet neighbors).

We stayed qt the pension for 5 days in room 29, which was quite large.
Staff: Were very friendly and helpful thoughtout the visit, including packing us lunch for our 6am flight out.
Location: Great location for walking to all the sites in town
Food: Breakfast was OK, nothing special. Food in the restaurant was OK, but we enjoyed some of the others around better.
Room: We booked a historical room, but think we had a suite. It was very large, with an entrance room, sitting room, bedroom, and bathroom. The room was very clean, and the bed comfortable but firm(two twin beds). The towels, were very rough and would be our one complaint.
Price: We stayed 5 nights, so received 25 percent off since we paid in cash, so it was very reasonable

We spent 3 nights in Pension U Medvidku (from 11 till 14 August 2005) and here are our comments:
> Location: could not be better! Easy walking distance from all main attractions (Charles Bridge, Wenceslas and Old Town squares, Castle). Prague is such a great city to enjoy by foot.
> Staff/reception: the first day, not quiet helpful nor well-informed; the rest of the stay, there were much more friendly people in charge of the reception.
> Room #3: nice, large, clean & authentic room. But… the beds were really hard, the bathroom was rather dark (a tiny spot to light a too big bathroom) and the windows didn’t close properly (bad soundproofing – we could hear the people in the restaurant downstairs – and bad insulation – in the summer, it’s not a problem but beware staying in this room during the winter!)
> Breakfast: rather small but this a 3 star pension. There were a plate of meats & cheese, bread, sausages, eggs, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, chemical juice, croissants, chocolate-filled pastries and Czech specialties. The second and third day, no croissants and chocolate-filled pastries at all. We asked the waiter and he told us that there was nothing left. We had breakfast at 8 and they were yet short of these! The waiter kept coming in the dining room but just to have a look, no to bring more food.

General feeling: as city trip lovers, our main concern is the location. For the rest, Prague has so many wonders to offer that we easily forget the “weaknesses” of Pension U Medvidku…
