About The Owner

Originally from Prague, our family has lived mostly abroad for the past 20 years. We purchased and renovated this apartment because the location is truly special. It is the perfect base for exploring the best of Prague - all the sights, historical buildings are literally around you creating an unforgettable experience. We would like to share it with you.

Why The Owner chose Prague

We love the history and the vibrancy of Prague and consider the variety and quality of cultural events unbeatable.The Old Town has a very special atmosphere; the apartment is in the middle of all the historical buildings and sights.

What makes this apartment unique

The best is being in the middle of all the historical sights...getting up in the morning and taking a walk on the Old Town square and surrounding streets while there is no one around...very special feeling and very different from the afternoon hours when there are lots of people in the area. In the evening, we love the views of the Tyn's Cathedral and St Havel's church, all lit up. It is so quiet in the apartment that it is hard to imagine that one is actually in the middle of the busiest tourist area. Quite fascinating... We tend to open up the door of the apartment to see the clock of the Old Town Hall Tower - especially when the lights in the corridor are off and one can only see the Tower with the clock coming out of the dark. It is amazing to be in a place that has so much sunlight, that is quiet and everything is literally within few steps (historical sights, great restaurants, shops, theaters etc.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a wonderful experience! The location of this apartment is incredible. Just step out, you are already in the most famous spot in Prague - Old Town Square, directly across from the Astronomical Clock! Although the square attracts many tourists, the apartment is tucked away from the noise. The area has everything to offer; plenty of shopping, food and attractions are a 3 to 5 minute walk away. The views out of every window are breathtaking. It’s nestled on the third floor of a very enchanting, old building (much like all the buildings in Prague) but the apartment is completely renovated with all new materials and updated appliances. From the master bedroom window, you can see both the Tyn Cathedral and the Church of St. Havel – absolutely stunning structures. Everything worked perfectly. The apartment is spacious and comfortable and we felt right at home. Instead of going out for breakfast, most mornings we opted for cooking and enjoying slow mornings in the cozy space. The owner, Dana, was such a delight throughout the entire process, from booking to check-out. She was very attentive to our needs, responded quickly and was always available if we needed anything. Her local Prague contact, Radek, met at the apartment to welcome us and get us familiar with the property. He was nearby and available for any questions or help during our stay. We are so thrilled about our experience staying here and thank Dana for being such an exceptional host. We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Prague and would we love to stay there again!

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Well appointed apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 4 nights on our first trip to Prague. It is a beautiful, modern, well appointed apartment in a superb location, literally steps from the Old Town Square. It also had an exit along a private passageway to get in and out while avoiding the crowds at the square. A Convenience Store was very close by, and open late, and was handy for getting breakfast groceries and wine, snacks, etc.. The apartment was immaculately clean and had excellent supplies and appliances. We arranged with the owner to have transport to and from the airport. It was at a very reasonable cost, and the driver knew exactly where to go (I shudder to think of a taxi driver trying to find the location based on my directions in a largely pedestrian zone). The owner's representative was waiting for us at the door, oriented us to the apartment, and gave some recommendations on nearby restaurants. He also showed up promptly the morning of departure to go over the departure items. He was very friendly and kind. Overall, we loved our experience. Lots of steps, yes, but the best way to work off all the schnitzel we consumed. We have already recommended this apartment to friends.

Great location; lovely owner but LOTS of stairs and no AC so VERY HOT in summer

  • 3 of 5

This apartment has a lot going for it, but several things not, so want to share:

1. Going for it: Gorgeous apartment; very clean; well equipped; amazing location right next to clock tower; very responsive owner

2. Not so great: LOTS of stairs (like 4 very steep flights); no air conditioning so VERY HOT in summer. Because its high up and heat rises, its a a couple of degrees hotter here than outside. Also, because of central location very loud when open the windows so hard to cool apartment down. Also, there was a sewage smell emanating from the master bath (even if we turned on the shower) so we stopped using it and the staircase had several open wires hanging which made it hard for my toddler to hold the banister and walk down.

Great Location in the heart of Old Town Prague

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was very roomy and comfortable for 2 couples. We' were well aware of the 3 flights of stairs and they were not a problem. Radek was quite helpful with the check in and check out and arrived promptly at the arranged time. A wonderful place to stay if your considering spending multiple nights in Prague.

Beautiful space! Plenty of area for us to spread out, while still comfortably gathering together.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment served as a wonderful location for us to venture from daily / nightly in experiencing the amazing city of Prague. In traveling with our adult children, we will forever hold dear memories of the beautiful apartment, over-looking the Old Town area. Being just steps away from delightful shops, sweet treats, restaurants, history, culture, people-watching & of course - beer... the site was alive with energy.

Dynamite location!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment for those who want to be in the heart of the action. Super clean and wonderful welcome. Helpful hint... close your windows before you go to sleep otherwise the street noise will wake you up.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and giving us 5 stars! We are happy that you liked the apartment and its great location. The apartment is usually very quiet, but on some occasions there might be a bit of noise (e.g. during a festival) so closing the windows in such situations is better. Some of our previous guests mentioned in their reviews that the apartment is very quiet despite its central location. We are looking forward to your next visit!

Fantastic Location and Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is gorgeous and wonderfully located. Dana and her Prague contact Radek. were easy to work with and had lots of great information. We really appreciated their desire to make our stay go smoothly.

The apartment is spacious and close to many attractions, shopping, and restaurants making for perfect place to explore Prague and all its incredible sites. Our kids 17, 15, and 8 all had great time in Prague! They really enjoyed the tours offered by Sandemans and the KGB museum was a big hit with all of them as well! But they all love that they could come back to the apartment to have a break before going out again to explore more or eat!

We would highly recommend the apartment .
