This 4 room apt. is located just 3 blocks from the heart of Prague’s historic centre -- old town square. Private and quiet, it fronts on a garden and adjacent arcade and loggia. It is next to the small and silent, misty winding streets of the old town, as well as blocks away from the most popular nightspots and many of the city’s best restaurants.
The apartment was renovated 2 yrs. ago, and is fully furnished. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the master bedroom has a king-sized bed which separates to 2 single beds, plus a living room (with sofa bed) and a kitchen. The living room and master bedroom look to the garden, where it is also possible to sit and relax or eat.A free parking lot is located around the corner from the apartment.The metro is a 5 min. walk. The area is very safe.
The house dates back to gothic times, and has historic details and a magnificent hand-carved late renaissance balustrade in the entry of the building. The city's most popular and visited places -- the Charle's bridge, old town square, the great Parizska street, and Wencelslaus square (shopping district) are all minutes away by foot.
The apt. comfortably sleeps up to 2 couples, and there is a sofa bed in the living room for children or guests.

hi! My family and I stayed in this apartment in October and it was lovely. It is in a very old building and everything we did was well within walking distance (we may have pushed that a bit, but that was our choice!) It was so quiet at night, even in an apartment building. We decided it was the huge, thick walls. It is not 'brand-spanking -new" [editor's note -- it sure isn't -- the bldg. dates back about 1,000 yrs.!] but the character was well worth it! The owner was amazingly helpful as well. He put us in touch with not only airport transport (fiendishly high if you try to find it yourself!) and with our private tour guide.
There are cafes and little corner markets just steps away as well.
Robin Moorman lives in Prague and was trained as an architect in California and in Venice (Italy). He loves historic architecture and its restoration.
I chose to buy a vacation rental in this location because of the profound historical value and fantastic location - blocks away from the old town square, which is the heart of the old town, that means it's located within of the best restaurants and most popular 'hotspots'-- but the house is located on quiet, winding, ancient street.
You are in the very heart of the historic old town, so all of the great sites are just beyond your doorstep.
