Myself, my wife, her aunt, and our two small children (11 months & 2 years) travelled to Prague in late June for a few days. This apartment was absolutely perfect! It was clean, well appointed, and nicely laid out. The crib they provided was really nice! Most of the stuff in the apartment is Ikea, which is fine by me. Fashionable yet functional.
The last minute nature of our plans had me concerned as I didn't really get a chance to communicate with the owner in advance, however my concerns were put to rest once we arrived in Prague. Zuzana had arranged for a taxi to pick us up and despite a little confusion as to where to meet, we got there no problem. The apartment is situated on Vodickova Street, where it meets with Jungmannova. Not right on the "main strip", so it's quiet enough at night, without being too far from everything. There is a nice bakery on the ground floor of the building, which has some delicious breads. I believe the listing when we looked at it showed a cafe in the same building, but it had closed down by the time we were there.
The apartment had everything we needed and sure beat staying in a hotel when we had 3 times the space at half the price.
Some advice and minor criticisms would be:
- The TV was a little small and old - but we weren't there to watch TV
- The WiFi was a little wonky at times - but this a very minor annoyance
- If you are coming via train, the apartment is very close to the station and shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes to get there. Always confirm the price with the taxi driver first. The driver who picked us up, I didn't confirm with, and we realized only when we had another driver drop us off, that the first must have taken us the long way as the first was twice as much as the second. I would say from the main station you shouldn't pay more than 250 CK The first guy charged us 400 CK
- If you are travelling with small children and need to use a stroller, get/bring one with big rubber tires! We had two strollers we brought from home, one was decent but the other was a cheapo and our poor 11 month old son had quite the jittery ride over all of the cobblestone streets! Hard to sleep when you're going over those!!
Overall I would HIGHLY recommend this place. We were VERY close to booking one of the other "high-end" apartments on this site, but (thankfully) it didn't work out and we ended up with this great place, well located, and at half the price!
