About The Owner

Our family is from Prague and WE LOVE PRAGUE! We have lived in different places, travel frequently, but we think that this is the BEST CITY in the WORLD! We would like to share this special place with you - it is truly in the most amazing location, with all the Prague’s biggest attractions and sights literally around you – just look outside the window or go downstairs. You are right in front of the Astronomical Clock on Old Town Square! We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do!!

Why The Owner chose Old Town

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.

Lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Prague in this lovely apartment. It is very well equipped, clean and modern. The beautiful pictures are accurate. The location could not have been more perfect, within walking distance of everything that we had planned to see. Dana was extremely responsive, always answering emails promptly. Radek was a pleasure to meet, and quite helpful. Transportation was arranged for us to and from the airport, which was much appreciated.

We found the stairs to be no problem. I had overlooked the detail of having no air conditioning; on the average night, that is probably not an issue as it cooled off nicely even after hot days with the windows opened.

We would love to return to this beautiful city and this lovely apartment one day. Thank you, Dana!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was very clean and in a great location in OLD TOWN. It’s located next to Starbucks and just steps away from restaurants, shopping and major attractions. There is no need for transportation as major sites are all within walking distance. Dana and Radek were very easy to work with and provided transportation from and back to bus station. You can’t beat the location!

Perfect Location, Lovely Apartment. Stop searching - just book it!

  • 5 of 5

Stay Dates 13-17 May 2018. Apartment shared by two couples, aged 60+. This is a wonderful property and we would stay there again. The number one reason to stay here is the central location. Just walk out the door and you are at the Astronomical Clock (which was under renovation during our stay) and in the Old Town Square. Charles Bridge and other attractions are just a few minutes level walk away.

The two bedroom apartment has all the mod cons you would need for a stay in Prague, and there is free Wi-Fi and local phone calls. Although the kitchen is very well appointed, we did not use it to its full potential as we ate out at some of the many quality restaurants nearby. We did not need to use heating or cooling appliances, so cannot comment on them. We just left the windows open. One bedroom is much larger than the other, and has three windows, while the smaller bedroom has only one window. But the bed was still queen size and neither the size of the room nor the number of windows impacted the quality of sleep or our stay.

If there is a downside it is the lack of an elevator to get up to the apartment. Having no elevator is pretty standard for apartments in the area, so don’t rule this apartment out because of the lack of an elevator. The only time that walking up the stairs is a challenge is when you are arriving or departing with heavy luggage (23kg850lbs) . The stairs are wide and small, but well lit. Even then the Apartment Manager Radek is there to assist. And Radek gives a great orientation to the sights of central Prague. This supplements the already detailed advice sent at the time of booking. Radek can also be contacted by phone, WhatsApp and Viber. Communication throughout the whole process from booking to departure is excellent (thanks Dana and Radek).

Don’t bother searching through all the alternative places to stay – just book this property, save yourself some time and have a great stay.

Perfect Prague Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Dana is a pleasure to work with and an excellent hostess. This apartment was clean, well equipped, and very comfortable. It was in a perfect location to walk around Old Towne and enjoy the beautiful aspects of the city. It was quiet and very private for being in a big city. We walked everywhere and the apartment was in close proximity to all of the tourist sites. I cannot say enough great things about this stay! We loved it so much we hope to come back.
