We originally booked into a hotel in Prague for a week. However, we decided that we would like to see more of the Czech countryside before our trip to Salzburg.
We found this pension and are glad that we did.
The room was a very good size, immaculatly clean, and the beds were SO comfortable. The breakfast was superb and the hosts, Peter and Petra, were incredibly friendly and helpful.
We would highly recommend staying here. Off season seems to be very quiet, but perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful nature.
As I said in the title of my review, the location of pension Calla is really beautiful - in front of the lake, quiet surrounding, just perfect. The family which runs this pension is extremely helpful and kind. On the other hand the interior of the pension need a reconstruction - our room looked like from the eighties, it was clean, but very old and outdated. To conclude my review, I think that pension Calla has a potential to be the perfect vacation spot, but the reconstruction process has to be finished in order to achieve this goal.
- great location - right on the beach, nice view
- very, very peaceful area - no traffic (end of road - literally :-)
- kind and friendly owners
Room for improvement:
- dirty dishes upon arrival, in particular forks
- new windows installed - otherwise really dated apartment, very basic furniture (collected from various ages/places) - which I would not care if the beds were ok ..
- beds/mattresses: major issue - old overused and way too hard
- additional kids’ beds made of sofa, but too short (detachable pieces slipping away from the mattress)
Overall: I would surely return once the mattresses are replaced.
Fantastic family run traditional Czech pension in a beautiful location (the pension is literally right on the lake). We were in one of the rooms on the first floor and the apartment had an absolutely stunning views of the lake and the national park beyond. The room was simple but comfortable and very spacious. Each room also has a private balcony overlooking the lake and a kitchenette. The owners are lovely and accommodating and provide free wifi. As the pension is in the middle of a national park there's not too much within walking distance, but there are plenty of beautiful places to walk around the lake. We even went mushroom picking! It is also only a short drive to Český Krumlov and local Lipno activity park (which is a ski slope in winter) and we rode the ski lift to an amazing lookout above the trees. Unfortunately, we stayed in mid September which meant it was too warm for skiing and too cold for swimming in the lake. Can't wait to come back at another time of year!
