Old school place close to the Castle; small and "cozy"; which can mean smoky and crapped in Czech. I had a relaxing visit around 2 PM. Only one beer; not unusual for old school Czech pubs. Pilsner Tankova cant’ be beat1

Lokal ten jest nie większy niż mój duży pokój - tak, to jedno pomieszczenie. Znajduje się w nim bar, kilka stolików, para wysokich krzeseł i cała masa hipopotamów wszelkiej maści. Całość sprawia bardzo sympatyczne wrażenie. Do picia nie masz do wyboru nic poza Pilsnerem Urquellem. Taki brak wyboru jednak uspokaja me sumienie, bo nie ma to jak zimny Prazdroj.

Local very Czech-style bar, quite crowded on an early Monday afternoon. Urquel on tap, that’s about it. Not a place for tickets, but nice if you want to sit down and have an Urquel the way it’s supposed to be.

Visited Tuesday 16th December 2014 .. I will never understand why these kind of places are so underrated on this site .. Oh yes cause thay don’t have 30 beers on tap or maybe cause thay are not " cool " .. But in places like this one you can feel the feelings of thousands of people who drunk here per years .. It’s a place with a soul !!! Came here after a beer friend suggested to us ( grazie Dino ! ) and I really enjoyed my visit under all the aspects .. Beer quality , service in the Czech way ,ambience and even the food looked good .. If in town again I will spend more time here rather in some famous overrated places with bland beers ..

Nice and small, traditional Prague boozer, what you see is what you get. Fast service, the barman is busy, beers are flowing from the tap almost constantly.

My favourite Pilsner Urquell tankova pub when I am in Prague! Sit down by the window on a wooden stool, say little or nothing and feel like one of the regulars. Another glass of beer will quickly show up when your first is empty. (Visited 22nd February 2012)

The prototypical bar for the working class drinking scene in Prague. Definitely a small local place where the guys come after work to slam down half liter by half liter of Urquell. The cask is in excellent fresh condition, and the character of the place is worth checking out, if only to see how a lot of Czechs do their drinking. Food was serviceable as well; came down from the castle in the early afternoon and was starving, and their limited pub menu did the trick. Worth a stop. Note: I’m taking points off on service because they jacked up a couple of the prices on the bill because they knew we were tourists. I paid it anyways to support the place because everything in Prague is cheap, but still a sleazy move. Score will be low for that and because there really is no selection, but go anyway.

If you have come to Prague, then you owe yourself a trip to try the best Pilsner Urquel. U Hrocha has two alcohol beverage choices, one of the best glasses of Pilsner Urquel in the city and shots.
Very local scene here, but they are used to those in the know popping in her for the good stuff. I had a blast here watching the Czech Ice Hockey playoffs. I loved that as soon as the game ended, the TV went off, and everyone back to the job at hand - drinking down that wonderul Pilsner.
My session at the Hippo was a highlight of my beer drinking week in Prague along with the Zly.
Just one warning, the place seriously fills up with ciggy smoke in the evening, so if this is a problem, get here as soon as possible after opening.
Worth every second.

Small place, very rustic, but a little too small and crowded. Tankovna Urquell in excellent condition. If you’re in the area, a visit here won’t harm you

Small place just below the castle very close to the British Embassy and the statue of Winston Churchill. Friendly place full of locals. I prefer U Kocura just around the corner which is bigger
