About the property

NEW!! Completely renovated, fully equipped apartment on the 2nd floor of the historical Dietrichstein - Donin building at Loretanska 3, just next to the Prague Castle in the exclusive district of Hradcany (literally few steps to the Prague Castle Square). The size of the apartment is 48 m2 / 516 sq ft and it includes a spacious living room with queen size bed, separate kitchen and bathroom and can accommodate up to 4 adults. It has 3 very large windows, 2 facing Loretanska Street with wonderful views on the surrounding palaces and 1 facing the quiet courtyard. New wood parquet floors give extra warmth to the apartment.

An office table with a chair is an ideal place to set up your laptop, FREE Wi-Fi internet access is provided. Lighting is set up through a combination of spot lights, chandeliers and lamps to create a warm ambiance. The apartment temperature can be regulated by the thermostat in the living room or individually on each heating element. There are all the amenities for demanding guests, including wireless internet, heated towel bar, washer, dryer, microwave etc. Should you wish, you can sit on the courtyard gallery in front of the apartment door and enjoy the sun. Or, you can take a walk to the nearby Prague Castle Gardens, Strahovsky Monastery Gardens, or the Petrin Park – it is amazing how much green space is just within a short walk.

Enjoy the romantic atmosphere of the Prague Castle and its palaces that surround you - the Tuscany Palace, Martinic Palace, Schwarzenberg Palace (housing National Gallery), Archbishop's Palace etc. The Old Hradcany Town Hall is the adjacent building (see photos). Be just 2 buildings away from Hrzansky Palace where the Premier of the Czech Republic has his office and representative quarters. The Prague Castle Guard is just across the street. From the apartment window you can watch the guards marching to the Castle for the changing of the guards. Literally a few steps away at the edge of the Prague Castle, you have the most amazing view of the whole Prague... In the morning you can hear the Loreto’s bells with their wonderful melody....In the evening the quiet atmosphere with beautiful soft light of the old street lamps prompts you for a romantic walk. The Old Town is just a short 10 min tram ride or 15 min walk (take the Old Castle Steps and cross the Charles bridge). The Charles Bridge is about 10 minutes walk down from the Castle, the Lesser Town (Mala Strana) with St Nicholas cathedral just 5 minutes. There are many wonderful restaurants and cafes around, we will be happy to make recommendations.

About The Owner

Originally from Prague, our family has lived mostly abroad for the past 20 years. We love to come back to Prague frequently; we truly enjoy this amazing city.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Prague 6 - Dejvice

The location is magical.... the property is unique as there are only a few apartments right next to the Prague Castle. We first experienced the uniqueness of this location while visiting a friend living in this building. It cannot be described, it has to be experienced! The proximity of the Prague Castle, the surrounding palaces and historical buildings and the quiet romantic atmosphere create truly a magical experience.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is magical – especially in the morning and at night. In the morning, you can hear the beautiful sound of the Loreto bells... take a morning walk to soak up the atmosphere available only to you as there are no hotels in the immediate vicinity, no tourists around until later in the day... Take a few steps to the Prague Castle, to the lookout where you will see the roofs of the Lesser Town (Mala Strana), the Charles Bridge, the hundreds of Towers, the Old Town... Or you can go down the historic Town Hall Steps (Radnicke schody) leading to the picturesque Nerudova street with many restaurants, cafes, galleries and boutiques. In the evening have a romantic dinner at one of the great restaurants in the neighborhood, then walk in the soft light of the old street lamps back to the quiet Loretanska street and the apartment.

A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment because of its location, its proximity to the Mala Strana quarter and other sites of interest and its amenities. It turned out to be the perfect choice: the apartment was exactly as described and pictured, spacious, comfortable, clean and well-equipped to make you feel at home instantly and conveniently located to explore the city on foot. Booking and check in were a breeze and truly pleasant; Dana responded to our emails promptly and Radek was very kind and helpful in getting us settled and providing some useful tips. We wholeheartedly recommend the Loretanska apartment to anyone who is planning to visit Prague. Thank you again for helping make our stay a most enjoyable one!

Location, Location, Location and Awesome Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Believe the photos, the apartment will not disappoint! It is just as shown. We were on an 8 week adventure in Europe and Prague was high on our list. The apartment had it all, including a great washer and dryer. We didn't have to look for a laundry. Wonderful! Dana's information is very detailed and took care of all our needs. She was great right through the payment process with Paypal. This apartment is walking distance to everything, we used public tram #22 however, my husband injured his leg and we had to take a taxi on occasion. AAA taxi cab service was great! I called, they kept our name and location and each time I called, they just wanted to know pick up and drop off. Each driver was very courteous, even the ones that didn't speak English. They always had our name when they arrived. Zabka grocery store was just up the street and had everything we needed to prepare a breakfast. Restaurants in the area and recommended by Radek and Dana were wonderful. We had a car and parking was a distance from the apartment, but very reasonable. You could walk or take public transportation on #22 back to the area of the apartment. We didn't have to do that, Radek took us to the parking and brought us back to the apartment. Both coming and leaving! Thank you Radek. When in Prague, there is only one place for us to stay. Here!

Great apartment, perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for four nights for Spring Break with our teenage grandson.

The apartment is just as shown in the pictures. Clean and bright and had plenty of room for us three and our luggage. Booking with Dana,the owner, was so easy. She was very prompt to answer all of our questions and concerns. The property manager, Radek, was also very helpful and informative. He arranged for someone to meet us at the airport to take us to the apartment when we arrived and then take us back to the airport for our return trip.

They had all the essential items you can think of - coffee, tea, sugar, cooking oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, some condiments. The kitchen appliances were clean,new and in good working order. There were plenty of towels and the towel heating rack was so welcome since the weather was unusually chilly for that time of year.

They also provided a cell phone for our use.

Taking the Tram was convenient and easy - maybe a five minute walk up the street. Tram #22 stopped at practically all of the tourist areas all over the city. Just remember on the return trip to the apartment the Tram signboard should say "Bila Hora" or you will be headed in the wrong direction.

It is right in the middle of the historic area of Prague Castle and St Vitus Cathedral.

It was Easter week when we were there and the trees and spring flowers were in full bloom. A big bonus for a gardener like myself.

The best view of Prague City we found was behind the Bella Vista Restaurant a short walk from the apartment. Fabulous panoramic views. Incomparable vista.

There is plenty to see and do in Prague and this apartment provided us with a quiet oasis at the end of the day away from the crowded tourist areas.

There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance - both fancy and family- friendly. Most days we cooked breakfast and bought our supplies from a small convenience/grocery store a block away.

I would highly recommend this property .

Oh, and don't fail to try the traditional pastry - the Tredlnik - with chocolate, cinnamon sugar or ice cream. Really yummy!

Thank you Dana and Radek for helping us organize.a wonderful vacation.

A wonderful place to experience Prague

  • 5 of 5

This location was absolutely perfect. A modern apartment, providing a quiet, comfortable place to relax after a busy day exploring this wonderful city. Located just steps away from the castle and tram service to Old City, we could also walk down the hill to Charles Bridge in minutes!

Our communication with Dana in arranging for the apartment was perfect. All of our questions were answered immediately. Payment of deposits was clearly explained and seamlessly completed through PayPal.

We have to add that our on-site contact, Radek, was terrific in giving us information about the immediate area, restaurants, and sites. Our visit was perfect! Thank you!

Magical Prague Castle Area Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed 11 fabulous days in this charming apartment in the Prague Castle area. Everything went very smoothly from the beginning to the end of my stay. Dana is fabulous to work with and things were exactly as she said they would be, including accurate pictures. The apartment is beautiful, efficient, quiet and couldn't be cleaner. It has everything you need to feel at home. I loved having a washer and dryer. The location is close to all of the castle area sites and a short walk down the hill to the Charles Bridge, then on into the city. It is a great place to to be located. The tram (#22) is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to get back to the apartment after a busy day of walking around the city. Radek (the property manager) was wonderful too. He met me when I arrived and explained everything, gave me his cell number in case I needed something, and was there at 4:40 am to say goodbye on my last day. Perfect is the word that describes my experience with Dana and Radek, and my time in the magical city of Prague. I can't wait to return and look forward to staying in this apartment again.

Awesome Apartment in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything it is advertised to be. It is a short jaunt to the Prague castle that we loved visiting. The inside of the castle was beautiful and interesting with it's Golden Lane, a group of colorful medieval goldsmith buildings on the grounds dating back to the 15 century, some now turned into shops with interesting treasures. We climbed the 287 steps to the top of the south tower for a great view during the day. At night we enjoyed the views of the city lights from the castle grounds overlook and a strings concert in a stone room of a church on the grounds with great acoustics. Down the street from the apt. we happened upon a retro toy store, Rocking Horse Toys, full of fun things. In the mornings we would stop for a tasty trdelnik on our walk down to town. The town has the most fabulous architecture and the wonderful Charles Bridge. One rainy day we found the Strahov Monastery Brewery & restaurant just up the hill from the apt, with great beer choices brewed onsite and tasty local food.The apt. was very comfortable with an open feel, big windows for natural light, and a great kitchen for cooking, but we never made it to the market. The washer/dryer were a nice perk as was the stereo to play the local music that we purchased. Dana the owner and Radek the local mgr were a pleasure to work with, especially since we were delayed one night en route. We would definitely stay at the apt. again.
