Historical Traveler Reviews B&B U Zeleneho Vence (Green Garland) Prague
Clean and Central
This place was very well priced for Prague and situated in the center of everything. The room is very large and sparsely decorated. The beds weren't very comfortable but the towel warmer were a nice touch. However, I definetly would use my own towels, since theirs are very thin and cheaply made (my husband actually ripped a towel drying himself off). The breakfast was excellent. Smoke free rooms were a definite plus. This a good place for someone who just needs a clean place to sleep, thats close to everything. But it's definitely not for romance. Also, their english is somewhat limited.
We returned with friends from a 4 day trip to Prague on 21.2.05., where we stayed at the Green Garland. We were all extremely pleased with the accommodation. It was situated in a prime position for exploring Prague. Lovely little bars and restaurants nearby, not expensive. Found a really good jazz restaurant, just around the corner (right) and across a courtyard. Food excellent. Hotel has a literary cafe just next door, which was very friendly (same owners). Rooms lovely and warm, clean and bright. We all remarked on how quiet it was of a night, no traffic noise. My only personal drawback was the stairs, as I am awaiting knee surgery. Steep flight through the front doors, then another flight to rooms. Proprietor very accommodating and allowed my husband to bring breakfast up on a tray to the room, minimised using the stairs. We had one of the best rooms (no. 6), as they did vary in size. Look forward to seeing Prague again this Summer and would stay there again (hopefully with a new knee in place!)
We wouldn't stay anywhere else
We have stayed twice at the Green Garland which must in itself be a recommendation. The rooms are spacious and spotless and the staff very helpful.
If you are going with another couple, as we were, try to book the suite - rooms 8 and 9. You get two separate en-suite bedrooms and a shared kitchen and dining area with fridge and kettle. The suite costs slightly less than two separate rooms would. If you are staying in an ordinary en-suite room, take a travel kettle and some paper cups.
Next time, we're going there again.
Couldn't fault it
We loved Prague and staying at the Green Garland made it perfect - location couldn't be faulted, two blocks or so from Karlova. Large clean rooms, no bath in our bathroom but a modern and clean tiled shower with powerful shower made up for it sort of. Breakfast was better than I had expected for the price of the accomodation - cereal, fruit, yoghurt, meat, cheese, eggs, selection of breads, juice, tea and coffee. friendly staff/owners helped us book taxi back to airport for better rate than the airport cab offered. Good pubs and eateries in the location and it felt very safe at night.
Ideal for short break
stayed for 2 nights in october, the owners were welcoming, rooms tidy, good location and in a quiet street. i would certainly recommend this hotel.
Great deal/location in Prague, CZ
Returned from Prague, CZ in Oct '04. We stayed a few days at The Green Garland (also called U Zeleneho Vence) which is only a few blocks from Karlova Street and no more than 7 minutes walk from the famous Charles Bridge. Quiet, safe location. Very affordable for proximity and accommodations. Clean, adequately-sized rooms with proper amenities. Very attentive and helpful staff who spoke multiple languages and were happy to assist with making reservations, bookings etc to local venues. Wish we had stayed here for our whole trip! Highly recommended!!
Could not fault this hotel in old Prague
This hotel is excellent value. In the centre of Prague, but very quiet considering how close it is to the main square. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious & spotless. Would not hesitate to recommend to others
This was a wonderful place to stay! The location was amazing. It took only a few minutes to walk to both the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square from there. It is in the Old Town and just off the busy walking street. The rooms were newly renovated and were large and very, very clean. The original beams from the 14th (?) century are exposed and give the rooms a wonderful feel. (Not all of the rooms are like that as we asked.) The bathroom was very modern and and also very clean. The breakfast room was very nice and the food served in the morning was adequate. The staff was extremely helpful. They were kind and personable. It was like staying with a private family. We stayed 9 nights so we had time to get to know them better than if one stayed 2 or 3 nights. We will definitley return to Prague and stay here again!
Highly Recommend - can't praise this place enough!
I stayed here in February 2004 for three nights and was really pleased - a great place to stay and inexpensive aswell. Location is absolutely perfect, right in the centre yet its still quiet so there's no problem getting to sleep. Nice restaurants and bars nearby. Everything in prague we wanted to visit was within walking distance from here. The staff are very helpful and give you all the help you need. Breakfast was lovely. Everywhere was nicely decorated and very clean. Bathroom was very clean. We went when it was snowing in February, but our room was lovely and warm. This place really is a gem and I can't praise it enough. If I return to prague I will definitely stay here again.
Excellent place to stay..
Just back from staying at "U Zeleneho vence" (Green Garland) for a few days. This place is a well-hidden treasure... if you can find it, it beats local hotels and B&B's hands-down! I booked a twin room, but what I got was a very large twin, with an attached dining room, bathroom with a fantastic power shower, and a second dining room (containing a fridge and kitchen appliances) which we shared with one other hotel rooms. All this for £66 a night ?! Unbelievable.The staff are very friendly, the location is perfect, (but it's pretty difficult to find on any of the Prague maps on the internet) and the area, although central, is very quiet.You really are just a few minutes walk from the old square and Charles Bridge. And there's a cool bar/restaurant right a few minutes from the B&B.Absolutely no complaints whatsoever. But one tip, go for the Airport Shuttle minibuses to take you to the hotel, save yourself having to find the place on foot. It's only £8 for upto 4 people, and worth every penny.

8am and the alarm went off, and down to the biggest display of food for breakfast I have seen, even with omelet chef. Donna straight onto the prosecco - honestly for breakfast !! So after breakfast a phone call in our room - "your tour guide is waiting in reception " !!! Whoops So ran downstairs and jumped on the bus, two stops later and a swap of busses to another ...
... you can imagine, and I don’t think the Czech people would mind. I think this was also born out of their desire to be a free country that now they don’t want to oppress anyone. As you can see, the Czech culture is very complicated, but fascinating. Now, where did I leave off? So last time I posted, I had explored the city of Prague. Since then I have had some great experiences that I will share with you now. - ...
... where the Eiffel Tower of Prague is located. We climbed the tower and got absolutely incredible views of the city and the Castle. Prague is really nice. It's not super huge, it has some awesome architecture, and pretty nice people. We also walked across the Charles Bridge and touched the statue of John of Nepomuk. We were told that if you touch the lady on left you will either have good fortune or you will return to Prague, and if you touch the dog on the right one of three things will ...
... most of the food here, it was really really salty. Pudd had a chicken risotto which he said was tasteless, and we shared a homemade ginger lemonade which was delish. We continued up away from the Old Town towards our destination, a war memorial in a park at the top of a hill. To get there we walked through streets that looked very depressed. They had an eyry feel - there was almost no one on the streets and very few card drove by, yet it was a ...
... sore throat, and as I got up all my joints ached, though I felt a bit better once I got moving. We made a bee-line for the comfort of an air-conditioned shopping mall and thereby discovered "Palladium", which is a wholly unremarkable shopping mall except for its distinct lack of places to sit that aren't explicitly for a named cafe or restaurant. In the end we found the food court, and devoured a large McDonalds french fries. First McDonald's I've eaten since ...
