I arrived very late and we went round looking for the place for a few rounds. This place is so humble and unassuming that you would appreciate it when the daylight comes. Maty and family leaves you alone and trust all guests - the note in the house: if you check out earlier, leave the money in the room and... More

I have stayed here on a number of occasions on my weekend trips to Krumlov and I have always loved the Hangout for its weird, fabulous, informal and artsy air. The owner is a painter and an actor and looks after you personally, unless he is painting or performing out of town, he would do anything and everything to make... More

Lovely cosy rooms and a very helpful host. We followed a few of his food and drink recommendations and were never disappointed! We also had our own bathroom and fire place. I really recommend staying here!

I stayed in the Cave room in the basement and I loved it! Cosy, spacious, super clean room with a little fireplace, comfortable double bed and nice bathroom. First I was a bit afraid for it to be too cold in autumn, but the heating system was really well set up. Perfect base to explore the city from and a... More

We stayed here and stayed in the basement. We loved it. It was clean, spacious and nicely decorated with the owners artworks and it had a really homely feeling. There was also a nice fireplace (although we did not use this). The B&B was close to town and very reasonably priced. We could not have asked for a more knowledgable... More

We stayed in the "basement" as well and we hated it. It was sooooo cold because of humidity, there was only one small window in the bathroom. In case of emergency, we were condamned! On the positive side, our host made it easy for us, and she was prompt on answering our emails, gave us very good advices on restaurants,... More

Traveled to Cesky Krumlov in July. Loved the little, picturesque town. Unfortunately, I did not love this B and B. Although it was situated in a nice area close to the center of town, it was basically a dirty, musty basement room. The place stunk of incense and there were spider webs and spiders everywhere. We killed a monster one... More

“Go for Nirvana is you need a bathtub and like a bit of romance, there is a fourposter bed. If you need a fridge and cooking, go for Buddha Room, it has a fireplace and kitchen, but only a shower room without a tub.”
