CHARMING & QUIET 2 BEDROOM APT. FEW STEPS FROM OLD TOWN SQUARE

Prague 1 - Stare Mesto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom (Sleeps 7) + sofa bed(s)

Nestled in heart of the Old Town, this beautiful and spacious 4th floor apartment boasts 2 separate bedrooms with a separate living room making it ideal for 2 - 3 couples. The apartment was fully renovated in January 2012, and has all new furniture. The turn-of-the-century building (1904) is in immaculate condition with restored frescas at the entrance and has a new elevator which leads up directly to your door.

The kitchen is fully equipped with oven and 4 burners, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and breakfast table.

The living room is fully equipped with flat screen satellite tv, dvd player, stereo and has high-speed wifi internet. There is a large couch for relaxing, dining table and unfoldable double couch bed.

The two bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, each with a double bed and storage capabilities.

The bathroom is very spacious with double sink, toilet, bidet, bathtub and shower. The whole apartment has central heating and also gets great light.

This recently reconstructed turn-of-the-century building lies in the heart of Old Town just 200 meters from Old Town Square and 50 meters from the 12th century Church of Saint Havel.

The building is neat, secure and clean with an elevator which opens you straight onto the door of your apartment.

The entry hall is spacious and leads into the kitchen on the east of the apartment and living room which faces onto Havelska street to the west.

The kitchen receives wonderful morning light which makes it perfect for a sit down breakfast. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas top stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, large fridge and freezer and all the plates and cutlery necessary for a large group.

The living room is also spacious and has a large L shaped couch and an additional double unfoldable couch with full bedding underneath. There is a lovely dining table which can be unfolded to accommodate 6 people. There is a hifi system with CD/DVD and MP3 (USB port) playing capabilities. There is a flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player for those wanting to relax in the evening. There is secure high speed internet throughout the apartment.

The bathroom is spacious and boasts all the amenities of a high quality washroom with shower and bath, double sinks with ample storage underneath and toilet and bidet. All guests receive ample fresh towels and wash clothes and there are thick bath mats on the floor.

The first bedroom faces onto the backside of the building and is cozy and quiet. There is a large double bed and wardrobe for storage. Both sides of the bed have nightstands with reading lamps. There is also an unfoldable single couch bed to accommodate children or members of a larger group.

The master bedroom is a beautifully furnished room with a double bed, full length wall wardrobe and large chest of drawers. Both sides of the bed have nightstands with reading lamps. Thick curtains will stop the morning light. The bedroom also boasts the best view from the apartment with a sneak peak at the castle on the other side of the river.

Havelska street is in the heart of Prague's historic Old Town. Just 200 meters from the Old Town square and the metro stop Mustek means that you have easy access to everything to see in Prague. Start your day with a coffee and fresh pastery followed by an early morning walk to the Old Town Square to avoid the crowds. There are tons of cafés, restaurants, bars, shops and everything else you could want as you are in the middle of Old Town. Try the famous U Provanice pub for the real Czech cuisine and more important beer which is located 1/2 block away. If wine is more your thing then sample the selections at U Zavoje also located on Havelska street. Buy your fresh produce at the market on the same street which also has a bakery.

The beauty of this part of Prague of course is the fact that you are in the center but just off the main strip where thousands of tourists pass along each hour. Centrally located, but quiet means you can relax but also reach any landmark within minutes. The castle is just a 20 minute walk or hop on the metro and go 2 stops circa 10 minutes.

The apartment is also 1 block away from the busiest shopping street Na Prikope with brand name products like Hugo Boss, Benetton, Next, Mango, Zara and Ecco to name a few. There is also a massive, modern shopping center - Paladium just a few hundred meters away.

There is also a modern multiplex movie theater showing most films in English with subtitles.

If you are interested in the arts you are just 100 meters from the prestigious Stavovske Divadlo where Mozart conducted his world premiere of Don Giovanni in 1787.

The national Opera House is just a 10 minute walk up Wenseslas Square and the National Theater a 10 minute walk through the Old Town side streets (TIP: bring your map).

In terms of dining you can choose from the cream of the crop to the best of the budget in this area. One tip for people not wishing to spend an arm and a leg for lunch is to pop in to Havelska Koruna for an affordable and tasty Czech meal in a cantina style. Price around 6 USD for a soup, main and drink.

There is a wonderful Balkan Mediterranean restaurant called Kogo - also on Havelska - which offers fresh fish and pasta dishes.

You are just blocks away from the hip and trendy Buddha Bar Prague - built in an old cabaret club.

There are sports bars in the area for those wishing to watch their favorite sports.

Tip: head over to Old Town square to watch the Euros in the summer of 2012 - and support the Czechs :)

Fabulous location and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5
Let's start with the fact you will become a Petra fan when you book either of her units. We had booked the other unit with 2 baths but got an email from Petra the day before our arrival that it had been flooded due to a water pipe break. A real travel hurdle that quickly was resolved when Petra offered this Havelska unit instead. Despite the fact we gave up the extra bath, this apt is so ideally located and comfortable, we were very pleased. It was so spacious, has two eating areas, a washer/dryer, wifi, great views, all the kitchen necessities and good storage in the bedrooms. The only thing we would ad would be another mirror besides the one in the bathroom. Prague is a wonderful walking town and this location is just perfect to call home during your stay. Do take advantage of the transportation from/to the airport or train station offered through Petra and Vladimir. Makes everything so simple.
Highly recommend this Prague apartment.

Ideal place to explore Prague

  • 5 of 5
We, a family of 5 adults , stayed in this wonderful apartment in December 2013 after the long flight from Australia and it was above our expectations. It could not be more central being right between the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. It is spacious, warm and comfortable and has everything, including fantastic wifi, comfortable beds and a dishwasher. But the best feature is the wonderful Petra, who we never met, but was so quickly responsive to every email we sent. She even tracked down the kindle we left behind. It was very convenient to have Vladimir pick us up from the airport. We walked everywhere including the delightful Charles Bridge and the surprising Prague Castle and easily walked to the train station with all of our collective luggage. We loved Prague and we loved coming 'home' to Hevelska.

Excellent value in the center of historic Prague

  • 5 of 5
The Havelska apartment was clean, modern, spacious, secure, and fully equipped for a family of four to six. It is close to Wenceslas Square,Charles Bridge, and there are plenty of excellent restaurants and pubs in the immediate vicinity as well as grocery stores and an open air market. We visited the Old Town Square daily and one evening literally strolled around the corner to the Prague Estates Theater to enjoy "The Marriage of Figaro." The positive reviews we read before choosing this apartment were 100% on the mark. Our group, two couples over fifty, were also surprised and delighted to find a dishwasher and washer/dryer in the kitchen. The manager, Petra, was helpful from the very beginning with a quick response to our inquiry and no-fuss payment. She even set up our transportation from the airport. We were met at the airport and driven to the apartment by Vladimir, another helpful and courteous, English-speaking manager. In fact, his car was parked right outside the terminal and neatly fit, with his great assistance, all of our luggage. The managers and this apartment were absolutely first-rate! Since our return, we have been recommending it to our family and friends of all ages.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week's stay at this apartment in Prague. It was very spacious and the location was absolutely perfect - very central. Old town square is a 3 minute walk away and Charles Bridge 5 minutes. There are plenty of restaurants and pubs and directly outside the apartment is a daily market with fresh fruit, souveniers and trinkets. The inside of the apartment is well equipped with all amenities. Home from Home - just lovely! Our stay in Prague was wonderful and this apartment made the holiday for us perfect.
Thank you Petra and Vladimir!

Perfect location and spacious apt!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 4 (with 2 teenagers) who just spent 4 nights at this apartment. The apartment is on the 4th floor with an elevator which opens right into the apartment. The apt is very spacious and clean, and nicely decorated. However, shampoo/conditioner and bath soap are not provided. You should either bring your own or just buy them from the nearby supermarket.

The location is very central - close to Old Town Square, Charles Bridge and Wencelas Square. The metro is only about a couple minutes walk away. There is a street market downstairs of the apt - the famous Havelska Market, which can get noisy during the day. Since the apt is in the city, it can get noisy at night too. As others have said, that is the price you pay for living in a central location which we didn't mind. We enjoyed the Italian food at the Corte restaurant on Havelska, and the ice cream place around the corner.

We arranged everything from the US without any problems. We also took advantage of the car service to/from airport provided by the apartment manager (600 CZK per trip).

I would definitely recommend this apt and stay here again next time we are in Prague. It is such a beautiful city.

Gem in the middle of the heart of Prague

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights in the middle of our European vacation. It was the highlight of our trip - so nice to have your own place to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. This apartment is huge, 2 big bedrooms, large bathroom, spacious kitchen - we loved it! Right in the middle of old town in front of the market. You do get a lot of street noise during the day and also at night as people wander the streets but thats the price you pay to stay right in the center. We were able to get around easily and really appreciated the pick up/drop off service. If we ever return to Prague we would definitely seek this place out.
