A Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this apartment! We are a family of 5 (kids ages are 7, 5 and 3) and after two months of experiencing apartments of various sizes throughout Europe, we were immediately impressed by the roominess and homeliness of the apt. It was such a relief to have a bit of space for the family and everything we needed. I might also add that the cleanliness was excellent.

Michal's efforts were outstanding. His generosity in meeting us at the train station, orientating, organising, leading and informing us right at the beginning was key to a very enjoyable experience of Prague.

One of our objectives for travel was to provide our children with authentic experiences in the places that we visited. In Michal's apartment, we were able to live like a Czech family for 9 days and experience genuine Czech hospitality. We were very blessed by Michal and his family's efforts.

While the apartment is in Michal's home, I can heartily affirm that it is very private indeed. In fact, we felt very secure.

Also, while the accommodation is not in the city centre, it is easily accessible by the #22 tram (which sure beats any hop on hop off tourist bus! Don't waste your money in that!). So, if you're happy not to be walking distance for the major sites, then this apartment would be a great option for you. There is a little incline on the walk from the tram stop to home, but we saw this only as a good opportunity to burn off all the Czech food we had been eating!

A beautiful Czech family, hosting a homely apartment in a safe and quiet suburb just out of the city. A taste of the real Prague!

Thank you, Michal!

Thoroughly enjoyed this property!!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples using this property. My husband and I used the top floor appartment and our friends used the apartment below with the full kitchen. Michal was MORE than helpful and kind when we each arrived at different times. He gave us brochures, maps and recommended places to see and places to eat. This property is a bit out from the main areas, however, the tram was SOOO easy to use. Michal even had tickets that we could purchase from him making our first adventure out very easy. Billa grocery store is about a 10 minute walk so all the things we needed were easily gotten. We would highly recommend this property to people who like the B&B atmosphere.

Felt like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our college-aged daughter stayed in the two bedroom apartment for a week while visiting Prague. Michal, the owner, met us on arrival and oriented us to the city and the public transit system. He had pamphlets for various sites in Prague and had researched event times for activities in the city the week of our stay. Overall, he was quite helpful and accommodating. The apartment itself was pleasantly spacious and comfortable. It is, as other reviews have mentioned, about 2 blocks from the tram line. It is on a small incline, and probably not well-suited to people with physical limitations. The #22 tram takes you from the neighborhood in Brevnov to the older, touristy part of Prague in about 10-30 minutes (depends on where you are headed - Prague Castle is quite close). It was great to get familiar with the tram and metro - we went to many sections of Prague during the week and traveled easily on public transit. A 24-hour pass for all transit lines costs 110 korunas (about $5). #22 is a great line, because it travels to many interesting parts of the city. Brevnov itself has the Brevnov Monastery. There is a view of it from the apartment. We had a very good Czech meal in the tavern there our first night in Prague. If you do stay here and are traveling on Tram22, do jump off the tram at Marjanka and walk toward the city to Moje Kredenc (Belohorska 26) for hot chocolate. It was a delicious way to start the day. We saw many beautiful sights, but would recommend taking the audio tour through Lobkowicz Palace and catching a classical music performance at St. George's Basilica at Prague Castle. Also, be sure to see the Astronomical Clock chime on the hour and hang out in Staromestske namesti one evening to watch the street performers.

Overall, this was a great place to stay and I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend or to come back. I gave it 5 stars for value: it is a clean, quiet, comfortable place and well worth the price. It is convenient to the city (the tram runs frequently and is available all night, although less frequent after maybe 11 or midnight), but we never planned to return to the apartment until we were done sightseeing for the day since it does take some time to get back and forth. Then we would take advantage of the cozy kitchen to have a glass of wine or cup of tea and plan our adventure for the next day!

Great place, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight stayed here for two months and had a wonderful experience. The apartments are comfortable and well-equipped for long or short stays, and the view of the monastery is really lovely. Michal was an excellent host and helped us so much with our arrival and during our entire stay. He is quite knowledgeable about Prague and its history. It's easy and quick to get to Prague Castle and just a bit further to Old Town. A great place to stay!

Prague visit September 2012

  • 4 of 5

This was a comfortable place to stay with a very helpful owner that gave good advice on getting around the city, places to visit and great customer service (even after everything we had read ahead of time said customer service is not usually a high priority here). We were close to public transporation without all the noice or crowds and able to see what it could be like to "live" in Prague. Don't expect all the anemities that you would receive in a fancy hotel; but if all you are looking for is a clean, easy assess place to lay your head at the end of a fun filled day seeing the sites then this is your place to stay! You could even purchase your transporation tickets from the owner. We would definiately stay here again on our next visit and recommend it to our friends. This was a first time for our family to stay in something like this and are thankful to Michal for making this an enjoyable experience!!

If you only speak English, we do not recommend the restaurant (sorry forgot the name) that is closest to the house and transporation site. They refused to speak English to us or help with the menu at all the first night we were there and hoping to eat quickly and then go to bed since we had been traveling all day. We had to travel into the city (which isn't a far ride but we were really tired). That was the only place we had any trouble with; everyone else would speak English and most had English on their meuns too.
