Overview

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 (King sized) 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 (queen sized), 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 :)

Beautiful apartment in the heart of Prague

  • 5 of 5

We adored our stay in this magnificent apartment right in the heart of old Prague. Very well situated, big, functional and bright, this apartment is a small jewel situated very close to the tourist attractions. The communication with Petra is exemplary; its availability and the speed to be answered our questions made so that our stay is of the most pleasant. Vladimir offers the service of transport of the airport to the apartment, the very effective and practical service. He is very available during our stay in Prague. I recommend you warmly this comfortable and functional apartment. Prague is a magnificent city.

Thanks to Petra and Vladimir for their welcome.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is tops on all counts.

The location is really convenient for getting to everything. There are quality restaurants nearby, the Havelska Market is right outside the front door, there's an ATM machine (Use the one in the same block on Havelska Street for the best rate.), a grocery store, a meat shop and a delicious sweets bakery all around the corner within a block around. The sites - Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and Charles Bridge - are nearby. We walked everywhere and never took public transportation or a taxi.

Petra is very nice to work with. She's responsive and anticipates what you might need. She leaves really helpful information about the immediate area. If necessary, you can use Vladimir, who she recommends, to get to and from the train station and airport. He's reliable, helpful and reasonably priced.

The apartment is very clean, nice looking and well stocked, especially the kitchen. Since we like to eat breakfast in, the coffee maker, microwave and toaster were much appreciated. The washing machine helps out too. The sheets and towels are of good quality. We were two friends traveling so appreciated there being two sinks in the bathroom.

We would definitely seek to stay here again.

4.9 is about right

  • 5 of 5

We would repeat the highly favourable comments of other reviewers: ideal location; a clean/comfortable/well-equipped apartment; reliable and professional management. Good value for money, too.

We would use again for sure, and recommend to others.

Awesome apartment, great location in OT Prague

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment for a Christmas trip to Prague. Apartment is as good as advertised and was very comfortable for my wife and I and our two adult sons. Apartment was very clean and well maintained. Petra and Vladimir were very helpful and available. The location is awesome, halfway between Old Town and Wenceslas Squares. The Helveske Street Market is just outside the front door. The Apartment is within walking distance of the vast majority of attractions in Prague, but is also very close to the metro and several tram lines.

The front bedroom can be a bit noisy at night due to the downtown location and proximity to the market, but nothing unexpected for a city location. The Internet worked well as did the TV, although, not surprisingly, there was not much English content.

The location is perfect for exploring Prague. There are several restaurants very close and the ones we went to were all excellent. There is also a supermarket on the next block if you want to prepare a meal or two in the well-stocked kitchen. We toured Old Town, the Jewish Quarter, the Castle, and Lesser Quarter. The Prague Zoo on Christmas Day was also a highlight of our trip.

I highly recommend this rental to anyone visiting Prague. The value for the price is very high and the location can not be beat.

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a fantastic location! It is easy walking distance to every tourist attraction that you might want to see. It is very spacious, nicely decorated, and very clean. There is a lift that opens directly to the front door, which is very helpful if you have strollers, luggage, etc. There are plenty of restaurants and markets within a very short walk. We had 4 adults, 1 child and 1 baby and management was more than accomadating by providing both a high chair and a travel cot for us. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen was nicely stocked. It is a very quiet apartment, with little to no street noise, despite the fact that it is directly above a fairly crowded market. It was amazing that we didn't hear even the slightest sound from the streets, which made sleeping babies very happy. The only negative was that the shower was not great. It is a shower/tub combo with an adjustable shower head. The top holder for the shower head must have been broken, as there was only one place to hook it and it was shoulder level only, making it difficult to wash your hair, etc. (especially if you are tall). That is the only reason that I rated it as 4 stars as opposed to 5 stars. Otherwise, the apartment was perfect. All in all, it was a fabulous apartment and we would certainly stay there again.
