Overview

About the property

Elegant Prague city centre apartment in historcial building, competitive rates.

It has taken us two years to find an apartment equal in style and elegance to our first successful acquisition in Prague. The new apartment represents our values of providing accommodation which captures the historical charm of Prague, while at the same time offering value for money. This Art Nouveau building has been renovated by an Italian company. Their work on the building was nominated for an award. In the apartment, many original features have been preserved. Parquet floors, French doors, high ceilings and large original windows blend tastefully with restored antiques, chandeliers and touches of modern style. There is a sunny, quiet balcony overlooking a courtyard, where you can enjoy breakfast in tranquil surroundings. There is a two and three-seater sofa bed in the flat which comfortably accommodates extra guests. This Prague apartment has been styled with an attention to detail, care and elegance, sure to leave you with memories as deep and vivid as the city itself

About Ilan & Veronika Morris + UK contact

My wife and I currently own and manage a total of six Prague apartments. We bought our first Prague apartment in 2004 and since then we have made a further two purchases. We started focusing on short-term rentals in 2008 after renovating our first apartment, the four-bedroom 97558.

We also sublease three apartments in lessor and Old Town and view leasing as an important way to expand our business. It enables us to focus on the most prime locations in the city that boast spectacular and unique views of some of Prague’s most iconic attractions.

My wife has 10 years experience in high-level hotel management and her experience in this sector has proved invaluable in professionalizing our business. All our apartments are renovated and/or decorated with a boutique style, using authentic, antique and vintage furnishings collected and added by my wife.

We take great time and care acquiring our furnishings in an effort to create a unique and original experience for our customers. We feel it is important to differentiate ourselves from the ‘four walls and Ikea furniture’ format which is standard in many holiday-let apartments in Prague.

We prefer to focus on a lower number of apartments so that we can maintain and develop each of them with an attention to detail true to our boutique style and principles of quality over quantity.

Our apartments are cleaned and maintained to the highest level and our improvements in both comfort and decor are ongoing. Since we started in 2008 our six apartments have acquired 360 five star reviews on HomeAway and average five stars across two other major sites with additional 300 reviews.

In future we would like to expand our portfolio taking on more renovation projects which focus on converting historical apartments into high-performing holiday rentals. All our renovations aim to capture the spirit and character of the building/ apartment being restored and only take on projects where we feel this can be achieved to the highest end.

Ilan & Veronika Morris + UK contact purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Ilan & Veronika Morris + UK contact chose Karlin

This property is furnished with an attention to detail and care that is very rarely found in other holiday rental. It is stylish, cosy, romantic and full of charm and character. If you would like to stay in an apartment which emulates the unique atmosphere of one of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities, we recommend staying here.

What makes this apartment unique

The balcony which overlooks a quiet courtyard is ideal for al-fresco dining, enjoying an early morning coffee or late night glass of wine.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment. The owners Veronika and Ilan have thought of every detail to make you stay as pleasant as possible. We arrived by bus from Budapest so could walk from the arrival point to the apartment and were sent a google map link to show us directions. Upon our arrival Veronika welcomed us and was very generous with her time, marking up maps of places to go, to eat and showing us the apartment facilities.

What a joy to have a geranium filled balcony-perfect for a glass of wine in the evening before going out. The bedroom was lovely, very comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. The kitchen had every thing you could want and we loved the antique armchairs and sofa. An outstanding feature of this apartment is the care taken with every detail of decoration and the thoughtfulness of what is provided such as washing powder, spare towels and the like.

We loved Veronika's recommendations for places to eat and what to see and do and would happily have spent much longer in Prague. We hope to stay in your apartments again Veronika and Ilan. Thank you for making our Prague experience so enjoyable.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning flat!!! We loved our stay in Prague and loved this condo. It was well stocked with everything we needed and the bed was extremely comfortable. Charming character was evident throughout the entire place. It was super convenient to public transportation and walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The hosts were very responsive to all inquiries and had excellent suggestions for sites and restaurants (Estrella was divine!). Will stay here again or any of their other properties when our travels take us back to Prague.

Delightful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was absolutely perfect. Spotlessly clean, well-appointed, it had everything I needed, all within easy walking distance of everything.

Additionally, help was available at a moment's notice when I had to change plans, and I was greeted when I arrived with a very thorough introduction and briefing about the apartment and all of the local sights and attractions.

I couldn't have been happier with everything. Highly recommended!

A most enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location was great -- close to the metro and close enough to walk into the centre of town. We even walked to Prague Castle and we are not young. I would certainly recommend this apartment.

Wonderful place to stay in Prague

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a four night stay in Ilan and Veronika's character style apartment in Prague in mid September of this year (2017). We really enjoyed staying in Karlin, the neighbourhood feels like a real neighbourhood, but was still within walking distance to everything wonderful to see in Prague. The apartment had so much character...it was lovely, like walking back in time. It felt like a little home away from home.

Ilan was easy to contact if we needed anything and was focused on making sure we had a good experience in Prague. We will definitely consider booking with IIan and Veronika again.
