Pension U Jakuba
Reviewed January 1, 2008

I have stayed here twice so far and have been very happy both times.

The first time I stayed here was February to April 2007 - yes, two and a half months! We (3 of us, plus sometimes a fourth) stayed in a large apartment with two rooms, each a queen bed, basic kitchen, bathroom with shower and a toilet. The furnishings were fairly basic, but sufficient. The kitchen had a stove, toaster, fridge and kettle, but unfortunately no microwave nor oven. The rooms are well heated in the winter, but there is no air conditioning for the summer.

At the beginning of our stay, a wireless internet connection was installed in the hotel so we had free internet during our stay - a huge bonus for me because I don't speak Czech, and this gave me access to Australian/English news, tv and radio.

The hotel is located in a very central part of the old town, just 150 metres from the Horni Namesti (main town square).

There is also limited parking at the hotel, about 6-7 spaces (which were sometimes full).

The next time I stayed here was in December 2007. I spent two nights here in two different rooms. The first was a standard double room and the second was an apartment immediately above the apartment I had stayed in previously. Both rooms had the same feel as the first apartment I stayed in. Of course, the double had no kitchen, whereas the apartment did. The double room was a kind of unusual layout, but still comfortable.

I would definitely stay here again. The staff are friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and the location is perfect.

As far as Olomouc goes, it's beautiful. I love it.

After reading an earlier review of this hotel, I was initially skittish about staying here. However, my husband was teaching a course at the local university, the school booked this hotel for us and so we stayed. I am so glad that we did! The rooms that we had included a kitchen and living room which made it feel like we were residents, rather than tourists. It was safe, clean, comfortable, light and close to the main square in town. The hotel staff could not have been nicer or more welcoming. When we missed our time for breakfast, they brought it up to us directly. All in all, it was delightful, as was the city of Olomouc. Discover Olomouc while you can, before the throngs of tourists come east from Prague to this gem of Moravia.

I stayed in pension Jakuba in May of 2006 and I considered it to be waaaaaay above average, compared to the alternatives.
In a nutshell - Nice rooms for very reasonable price.

Very modern style to rooms and furniture, there are smaller rooms that are very reasonably priced, But the larger rooms are great.!

Walk In closet, large bathroom, modern toilet, heat rack designed for space heating or safely drying clothes (Insulated series of metal tubes) Full Kitchen,fridge,stove, sink, cabinets.
large living room with double bed in a corner "studio" ( it has half walls that are 6' high with doorway opening to get to bed. The building was getting major remodeling done to the back area when I first visited. When I returned to Olomouc at the end of May I stayed briefly in a very inexpensive room (very small) it was very clean.

Incerdibly convenient to main town square , literally across the street .
also withing 300 feet of grocery store and other shopping needs

We stayed at the Pension Jakuba. Got our wallet stolen from the room. Suspicous circumstances...so beware. Rooms are nice but there is no communal space if you are in a group. Olomouc is a fantastic place!

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am truly sorry for your stolen property. We strongly advice to all our guests that they should lock their rooms because the front part of the hotel is accessible during the day from the street. We now lock the front door to keep our property more safe. It was the only case of guests property loss that ever happened in our hotel and again I am very sorry about that.
I am glad you have enjoyed Olomouc.
