It is a three star pension but it is great. We stayed in a triple bedroom. It is 5 to 10 minutes walk from city center. Very clean, wifi included, a good breakfast and 24 hours reception. Everyone lovely. If I return to Prague surely will try to stay here again.

Everything was great for this place. Location, price, staff... All good. But every night I was in bed I woke up with bites on my arm and legs... I showed the staff and they moved my room. But I never saw them remove the old rooms mattress, so they didn't take my complaint seriously

The Penzion Balbin is a clean, spacious, well-run B&B. We found the price really reasonable for accommodation so close to the notoriously expensive center of Prague. To use the Balbin, though, you need to be fit, as entry entails a walk up to the 1st floor before you can take the lift. We almost always walked all the way down...

The Balbin is in an excellent location near the Wenceslas Square, National Museum and main rail station. The Museum tram and Metro stations are a short walk (turn right on Vinohradska from Balbinova), and the Italska tram stop is even closer (turn left on Vinohradska). With this said, the hotel is nice, but not "disabled friendly." There is a flight...

Pension Balbin was recommended to us by a friend from Prague as clean, friendly, well-priced and close to all modes of transport - and it was all of these! Situated in a quiet, residential street with the museum metro stop a 5 minute walk away, the main station a 10 minute walk (slightly hair-raising due to a narrow pavement next...

The hotel manager is very helpful - she told us about best places for sightseeing and affordable places to eat, gave recommendations on public transport and settled us in our room without problems. The staff speaks English well. The hotel is easy to reach from the main train station (10min walk), is near Opera, National Museum, is in a quiet...

After emailling the hotel manager, and confirming and booking a stay (and paying ahead), I was lured by the promise of a free airport / train station pick up and transfer. Taking the usual cost of a taxi to the hotel into account, I decided to book my stay with this hotel, as it would end up being cheaper than...

Large 16 room B&B. Great professional staff who are very friendly and speak excellent English. Rooms were clean and average but had private bathrooms. Location is excellent for walking to Museum or metros.

Judging from a map showing the proximity to the tram station, we were expecting a bit of noise. This, however, was not the case at all. The room was extremely quiet, even during the daytime, much to our pleasant surprise. The rooms were large enough and the beds surprisingly spacious and comfortable (and we're picky). Breakfast was basic but plentiful...

Neighbourhood Profile
Vinohrady & Vrsovice
Compared to the medieval heart of Prague, this neighbourhood standing on former vineyards developed very quickly in the first decades of the 19th century. Today, it is the place where everyone wants to live, and those who do, are proud of it. With its amazing parks, classicist houses, terrace cafés, artsy bars, cozy restaurants, markets, and vintage and trendy shops, it is a home for people from all around the world. This area blends expats, families, bohemian students and Prague’s hip community. It is a great place for breakfast in the morning, the best lunch places and a buzzing night life. After sundown, stroll down to Vršovice, the new center of the hipster, alternative and gay scenes in Prague.
