Located near Wenceslas Square on a rather non-descript street, Balbin Pension is well-positioned for visiting most of the city's tourist sights. The pension offers 17 simple rooms and apartments and a helpful staff.
Pros: Large rooms. Friendly staff. International scene.
Cons: Plain furnishings and décor.
The Balbin's rooms are spacious and simple. Furnishings leave a bit to be desired—there isn’t much in the way of decoration and furniture is basic dark wood. Blue carpeting and yellow curtains provide the only bursts of color. Bathrooms are similarly stark. If you're traveling in a large group, we recommend going for one of the Balbin's spacious apartments. These are huge, three-room affairs, with a massive bathtub to boot. Wi-Fi is available for free in the lobby and some rooms.
The reception area, staffed by a friendly bunch, is spotless and shiny. The breakfast room is actually two well-appointed rooms with big windows, a small corner buffet area and tables with cheery linens.
If you are looking for an international scene, the Balbin delivers. Guests include Swedish families, Czech business people, and Italians here to party. If you're visiting during the summer, ask for directions to Riegovy Sady Park. A less than ten-minute (uphill) walk will bring you to a leafy area with fabulous views—and one of the largest beer gardens in the city.

About the Balbin Pension neighborhood
Just east of Nove Mesto, this hip neighborhood is dotted with stunning churches, cozy cafes, hip clubs and cheap sleeps to boot. Once (as its name implies) a land of vineyards, Vinohrady today offers a little bit of everything and it's only about a 15 minute metro ride from the city center.
