I can't help it, but I really like this quirky place. It's pretty basic and nothing fancy but it has so much more authenticity to it. The hotel rents the top floor of an old apartment building that is occupied by normal residents so you can really taste the local culture. To get in for the first time you have to ring the bell but after that you get your own entrance key so you really feel like coming home. And the elevator! It's so old that it has it's own personality. It must be from the 70s or 80s, you don't see elevators like that anymore, it's a real experience to ride it. But back to the hotel. As I said it's pretty basic but the staff is really helpful, friendly and relaxed. The rooms are clean and quite nice, specially the one on the upper floor, although very simple. They're supposed to be non-smoking but the staff don't enforce the rule. If you don't expect anything fancy you'll be happy and you'll get a healthy dose of Prague that is a bit closer to what the locals actually have. In my opinion that's a plus. Great for backpackers.

For a basic stay on a quiet, well-located street, Balbin will work for many travelers. Rooms are spacious, but of a standard style – dark wood, not much decoration. The staff however is quite friendly and helpful and the overall vibe is relaxed. There are actually two breakfast rooms, bright with big windows, also a couple apartments if you are travelling with family or in a group. With only 16 rooms, you can expect a smaller feel and more personalized service. Balbin is located a few roads past Wenceslas Square, and there are lots of restaurants and bars on the surrounding streets.
