Pension Na Starem Brne
Ranked #11 of 75 Brno B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 24, 2013

If, like us, you like to stay away somewhere a bit away from the city centre, this is a good choice. It's tucked away behind Mendel's monastery (and round the corner from the Strarobrno brewery), about 10 minutes uphill to the castle and 15 minutes into town. The rooms are quite small but clean and comfortable. We took advantage of the breakfast they offer - there was enough left over from the meat and cheese option to make sandwiches for lunch - but what the website doesn't tell you is that there is a well equipped kitchenette where you can make your own food if you want.

Brno, basically, is a very intense city with awesome czech pubs and clubs that can't be found in other countries (maybe in Poland? Still didn't check that)... of course the way the city is seen and lived also depends on the traveller's attitude. Anyway, I like to discover the city, participate to its life as much as it's possible; and at the end of the day I usually need peace and calm.

Pension Na Starem Brne is the best place to get some relax at the end of a long day in Brno. It's located near to the city center (20-30 min if you like to walk, or 5-10 min by tram) next to the Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady and the monastery in which Gregor Mendel carried out his famous and funny experiments. Oh, and on the other side there's a restaurant with a fantastic garden terrace.
The room was very nice and clean, I had no problem with warm water in the shower, the bed was surprisingly comfortable.

If you need some calm and nice place to sleep in Brno, don't miss this place. And if you're there, don't miss asking for a coffee - it's again just... aaaaaawesome!

A note about mosquitos: if one of them appear in your room, you have to swap it twice. For some mysterious reason mosquitos in Brno seem always surviving the first swap. As soon as you swap them the second time, they die.

Room Tip: I'm not sure if they have rooms on the south side - I just have a feeling that they have. :I A...

A great visit staff could not be more helpful let is borrow a guide book and supplied umbrella for a rainy day.Room basic and clean, attached shower room almot as large as bedroom. location central and easy to find if you use google street viiew first, 5 minute walk to exhibition center and under 10 to town center and castle Spilbeck.
Brekfats filling and very reasonable price and can not beat price on room in Brno during June.
Negatives really picky but no plug fo sink in bathroom and in summer next to a bar and church so a little noisey at night and at 6Am as bell rings for mass. Not an issue if you keep windows closed.
As for Brno if you stay in June/July a little tip, bring Mossie repelant and cream get bitten every time.

Excellent staff, who went above and beyond their call of duty, delicious home made breakfast-made to order, free internet and on-site computer to use, short walk to the castle and city center. Easy tram ride from the train station...take tram 1 Bystrc and get off at Mendlovo namesti, walk towards the church, go behind it and you are there in less than 10 minutes. By your tram ticket from the 'Relay' stand in the train station for only 20 CZK's. You won't find a cleaner hotel in Brno and the location can't be beat. Don't pass up the chance to stay at this amazing facility.

Room Tip: Cozy facility with 7 rooms...I stayed in the single and it was roomy, bright, cozy and clean.

Very simple but comfortable pension (B&B) close to wonderful beer pubs just around the corner and center of Brno. Great wine cellar just next door.
Get the breakfast-home made!
Remember to visit the cathedral and the castle.

The location is terrific being next to Mendlova Square and the Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady. There is a major tram interchange only 100 metres away and it is only a short tram ride to the city centre. We walked it one day in about 15 minutes. Even better is that the Pension is right next to the Starobrno Brewery and its attached Pivovarska Restaurant. If you want huge meat lovers meals washed down with great beer then this is the place. It has a huge indoor eating area and large open air terrace that was packed every night. Euro Cup 2012 was being broadcast every night on the large screen TVs set up inside the restaurant. The staff at the Pension were very helpful, even teaching us a few basic Czech phrases! The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the shower was scaldingly hot. We paid 70 CZK each for a breakfast of muesli, yoghurt, bread and jams. There is a small area with a kettle and microwave. One small criticism was that, while we followed their directions, we had great difficulty in finding the Pension when we arrived. Five different locals had never heard of the place. It is to the right of the Basilica as you get off the tram.

Pension Na Starem Brne has a family feeling. It is located in an old monastery, beside a beautiful basilica. The hotel is a five minute walk from the downtown area. Also there is a tram hub very close to the pension, so access to transportation around the city is conveniently near the hotel.
For beer lovers, the Starobrno brewery is practically next door.
Except for one person, the staff doesn't speak English. However, the are very friendly and kind.
The pension offers basic accommodation. This is not for the traveller that likes to stay in luxurious hotels.
