“perfect location to visit the old city”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

This old 18th-century house has been converted into, I think eight rooms and is in a perfectly located street very close to the main square and also a number of very attractive restaurants. Our "room" was in fact a small suite: entrance hall which were used for luggage, bedroom on the left and bathroom on the right.Furnishings are"rustic" but perfectly serviceable. The room we had was heated but not I think air-conditioned.Breakfasts were in a cavernous ground floor room. Because of the location, we were able to walk everywhere.

it is situated on a very narrow street,virtually one-way, and is thus very quiet.

Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and everything is spotless. We stayed there on the recommendation of a Czech friend and plan to return to Prague and stay again at the Green Garland.

My wife and I spent three nights at the Green Garland Pension.

It has the perfect location. You are in between the Old Town square and the Charles Bridge. Yet, it is also far enough off the main tourists streets, that it is peaceful and quiet at the Pension.

We had excellent service from booking, to arrival, to checkout! The staff is very willing and helpful, and will even book you a taxi if you require it.

The price is excellent especially for the the value of service and accommodations you receive! Our room was spacious and clean. The private bathroom was modern and clean. The continental breakfast was more than adequate. The Pension was quiet and safe (and who didn't love working the massive old Lion themed locks?).

We are recommending The Green Garland Pension to all of our friends traveling to Prague.

I stayed 2 nights at the Green Garland and would stay there again in a heartbeat if I am ever so lucky to be able to return to Prague. The location really is unbeatable. I could walk easily to the Charles Bridge, old town, the astronomical clock, Wenceslaus Square, and the Jewish Quarter. I even took a sunrise hike up to the castle (a 20 minute walk from the B&B). In spite of its close proximity to these main tourist sites, the B&B is remarkably quiet. I did not hear any outside street noise from my room. I appreciated the staff making taxi arrangements for me, and helping me with maps and recommendations. As a woman traveling alone in a country where I did not speak the language, I appreciated the warmth and attentiveness of the staff. I had a wonderful stay!

The location is superb. It's central to everything. They had us picked up at the train station which was helpful, met us at the door when we arrived, and helped us with baggage. The breakfast was adequate for our needs; the sale of water, beer, etc. convenient. The room was comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if we return to Prague.

The host Alice is extremely warm and goes out of the way to ensure you have a great stay. Our train from Vienna arrived at 5 in the morning and she was patiently waiting by the door to receive us. She also makes it a point to stay with you through breakfast to answer any travel related queries and helps you plan your trip. The rooms are spacious, well lit and the bathrooms are extremely clean. It is also a stone's throw away from Charles Bridge and the city center. You get to make the most of the party scene in Prague. However, the street on which this hotel is located is very quite and you can be assured a good night's sleep.

We wanted a place near Charles Bridge that was not too pricey, and the Green Garland met all our needs. Highly satisfied with this choice, here's are my pros and cons for comparison sake.

Pros:
1. Arranged pickup from train station at a small fare was convenient. Great if you have heavy luggage.
2. Central location, close to Charles bridge, Old Town, nice restaurants, and everything within walking distance. Great value for money!
3. Fantastic staff, always available for any help you need.
4. Historical building, renovated tastefully and well-maintained, lovely clean rooms, charming wooden decor and furnishing.
5. Adequate breakfast in the breakfast room.
6. Safe location, locked up nicely, and they let us store our luggage safely locked up on the last day, so that we could do some last minute shopping before leaving.

Cons:
1. There are no lifts, there is a historical reason for this :), so the flight of stairs may be cumbersome for some, especially if you have heavy luggage.
2. The room at the end has poor wifi signal, so you have to go out to the common area to get a better signal.

Stayed in a twin room and everything was great! I was touched that Alice came to the door to receive and greet us upon our arrival. I also appreciated that we could buy water and beverages off the fridge so there's no need to carry them back from the supermarket :)
