Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been a guest of iTravex membership for years. In Paris France, Poipu Hawaii, Rome Italy, Beijing China, the West Coast and British Columbia, I have never stayed at a more agreeable, pleasant or perfect unit as John’s spacious apartment in Prague. My wife, son, his cousin and I were guests for 7 days to our great pleasure and enjoyment. We enjoyed the winter mornings running 4 miles to the old castle and to the Old Town Square on the frosty mornings, when few are awake and the trams trundle on by with yawning people going to work near the Christmas holiday Castles and clock towers. The apartment is so close to the sights that we could walk to the Castle Hill beyond Charles Bridge and spend the day walking back through Wenceslaus Square and Old Town Square enjoying the romantic 2am walk along the glimmering banks of the Dneiper River. There is excitement along with thoughtful cobblestone paths winding through Prague. The apartment is a part of it all. The full kitchen is large and gourmet equipped. The rooms and ceilings are spacious and grand, and the view of the Church and pedestrian cobblestone streets from the enormous windows is fascinating, we would sit with coffee and gaze out to the waking-town each morning.

This is the very best one can expect in apartment accommodations. Do not think twice - Prague awaits.

Wonderful! Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The host, Mr. John Grant, was very responsive to all correspondence. Key pick up and drop off occurred without any problems.

The place was excellent! Great location. We pretty much walked to all the restaurants and landmarks (with toddler in tow). We had a tram ticket for a day, however, did not end up using it much since the location was so central. Very comfortable place to stay, plenty of space. Note that there are stairs to take before the elevator. Well stocked kitchen. Very comfortable beds. Nicely appointed bathrooms. Very clean. Safe and secure. I will recommend this place to any family or friend who will going to Prague next.

June 21-26-2016 was a very unexpected pleasant experience of our accommodation in Prague.

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time for us to have stayed in an accomodation such as yours, as we have always stayed in hotels. Let me assure you that we were very happy we stayed at your apartment and we have no reservations whatsoever, to recommend your apartment to our friends, in the same way as it was recommended to us by them. And as we often say :"By word of mouth is the best and cheapest advertisement one can have”. When discussions arise about "where - shall/can - we stay in Prague" your apartment will be on the top of the list.

Thank you for letting us stay at your very, safe, comfortable, quiet, in a great location and beautiful apartment.

Prague Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spotless apartment perfectly placed in Prague - within in easy walking distance of both the Charles Bridge and the Dancing Building. Close to all the sights. Boat docks and Prague Castle so close. Apartment equipped with everything you might need and owner readily responsive and helpful. We feel as if we have made a new friend. Recommend highly. We loved the public art sculptures, classical concerts in almost every church and public square and of course the beer gardens.

Owner's Response: Thank you Roberta! Glad you enjoyed the apartment and Prague. I always enjoy taking different routes back to the apartment to see what is newly opened in the area. Being so close to the river embankment is also great especially now with all the events including the Farmer's Market.

Terrible reception

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was lovely. The neighborhood was good, close walking distance to sites, good restaurants. I would strongly advise avoiding this site due to reception. We arrived on the afternoon of our scheduled visit and followed directions to the location of key pick up. I had our voucher and a receipt with emails from John Grant. The woman with the key spoke no English (not a problem). I attempted to show her the voucher and receipt. She pushed me (and friend) away. She refused to look at the materials. A young English speaking Czech woman came down the stairs and offered to help. She said the woman stated "she has no key", "she wants us to go outside and talk". This evolved into "maybe l have a key but why should I give it to you". I rang the bell and we went inside again the woman was yelling at us to go back outside, according to the translator. I said we are not going without the key, we have paid for the apartment. After about 15 minutes the woman made a phone call then gave us the keys. In spite of fact that we had all materials, she refused to help us. I suspect she was looking for a little extra money.

No better value to be found

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment. We have stayed many apartments thru HomeAway and VRBO from Spain to Israel. This was the nicest. The apt. was spotless on arrival, a first. The furniture was not all Ikea, but period furniture for the location. There was art on the walls. The kitchen and baths were well supplied. The apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. The #17 tram stop was basically 2 buildings away. The neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe at all times. Working with John was a pleasure. He never left a question unanswered and his responses were accurate and quick. I wish he owned apartments in other cities than Prague. When we return to Prague in a few years, we will look for this apartment again before any others. If you are going to Prague, there is can be no better landlord or apartment offered at this great of a value. Just so you know this review is real, if there is a negative, it is storage space is tight. A wardrobe or 2 from Ikea in each bedroom would be perfect.

Prague is like walking through a fairy tale and modern city at the same time. The people of Prague are so proud of the English they've learned since communism. Friendly, outgoing are the top adjectives that come to us. Food is tastier than after the Velvet Revolution. Prices are very reasonable for the EU. They are as proud of Davidov as St. Vitas Church which is so rare in Europe.

Prague is full of tourists, but few from the US. You have no idea what you are missing until you visit Prague. It has been called Paris of the East, and in many ways now exceeds the City of Light in our opinion. Our most enjoyable time was the Gray Line lunch cruise. Every boat will have the same sights from the River, but our driver was friendly and so knowledgeable of Prague and the food on the boat was very good.

Enjoy this apartment and Prague. You will not be disappointed.

Loved this apartment! Very nice, clean and even a well thought DVD collection. Very good email responses from the owner and convenient nearby key pickup/ drop off. Would definitely stay here again.
