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.

One of the best we've ever stayed at.
On our recent 2nd stay in Prague, we stayed at this VRBO from February 9 to March 4, almost a month. This trip had the purpose of researching my husband's heritage; therefore we wanted to have the experience of living in Prague like residents. This wonderful VRBO certainly made this possible. It was absolutely beautiful, with an elevator that delivered us directly into the apartment. We had so much space - a full kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, stove, full fridge, etc. The kitchen was stocked with every dish, pan, etc. we could ever need. It also had a table, perfect for 4 people for breakfast. We had 2 bedrooms, a great bathroom, great living room/dining room. The apartment had so much more than we could ever need; we loved it! The apartment was also in the perfect location. It was an easy walk to all tourist attractions and an easy walk to trams for those other places we wanted to visit and explore. Beyond providing us with every amenity we could want, this VRBO introduced us to Petra and Vladimir. Petra was always available via email or text with any information we wanted. Vladimir provided us with reasonably priced transportation to and from the airport and to destinations out of Prague that we wanted to explore. We have traveled a great deal in both the US and Europe and mostly used VRBOs. This beautiful rental ranks as one of the best experiences. 10 out of 10! We hope to visit again as soon as we can.
Thank you so much for your kind words and I am happy you enjoyed the apartment and your visit to Prague. You were an excellent guest and more than welcome to stay at the apartment when you return to Prague.
Old Town Prague
The apartment was very clean and comfortable. It was conveniently located. We could walk to everything and we did. The market was outside the front door. We could go out and buy fresh fruit for breakfast.
Location was fantastic. Flat was very spacious. Loved having a washing machine
The location is so central. We enjoyed having space to spread out and have some time to recharge our batteries halfway through our vacation.
Thank you for your kind words and I am glad you enjoyed your stay and your visit to Prague.
This apartment is wonderful. It is large, bright and comfortable. Equipped kitchen with Ikea plates, etc. Nicely appointed. It's best asset is the location...you can walk to everything. (Remember you are in a city, so if street noise bothers you, then this is not for you. We slept with the windows open to have the full experience). Amazing views out the windows, a bustling market out the front door. Rides to/from airport worked efficiently. Petra very responsive.
Thank you for the positive review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay and your visit to Prague.
Beautiful Apartment, Fantastic Location!
This beautiful apartment is exactly as portrayed in the pictures - only better. Immaculate and spacious with high ceilings, lots of natural light, and beautiful hardwood floors. Eat-in kitchen is modern and fully equipped, bathroom is large (especially by European standards) and modern, and bedrooms are very comfortable with plenty of storage. The location couldn't be better - a very short walk in one direction to the Old Town Square ( the heart of medieval Prague) and a few short blocks in the opposite direction to the New Town and Wenceslas Square. A metro stop and the Albert grocery store are right around the corner. Across the street is a very good Italian restaurant (Corto) and along side it the Zebra Noodle Bar - also excellent. An ATM is located diagonally across the street. Lots of eateries, pubs, and cafes all around within a few minutes walk. Every day there is an open air market on the street directly in front of the apartment building - fun for people watching. Petra and Vladimir were great to work with - good communication both before and during our stay. They offer a transfer service from and to the airport which we would highly recommend - price is reasonable. Vladimir was right there to meet us upon arrival and right on time to take us back to the airport for our departure. A word about Prague - what a beautiful and fascinating city - it far exceeded our expectations. Although an ancient city, it has a vibrant, young, and fun vibe. One of the things that most impressed us was the cleanliness of the city, no graffiti, no homelessness (that we saw), no panhandlers, and nobody constantly trying to sell you trinkets or sightseeing tours - a welcome change from many destinations. A day trip to the beautiful and picturesque UNESCO heritage town of Cesky Krumlov south of Prague is recommended. We would love to return to Prague and would definitely stay in this apartment again! Thank you Petra and Vladimir.
Thank you so much for the long and detailed review I appreciate the time you spent on it. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and your visit to Prague and hope to host you again in the future.
Very unhappy with car service
There are nothing but good things to say about the apartment. Very clean, kitchen with all the appliances, large, comfy and in a perfect location.
But what would have been a pleasant stay was ruined by the offered car service which failed to return us to the airport after our stay. A half-an-hour after our arranged pick-up time had passed, we had to drag our four suitcases out of the pedestrian zone to find a city street with a taxi.
Thank you for taking the time to review the apartment I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am so sorry about the problem with the airport transfer. We were relying on an external service as our manager was away and he had arranged an alternative service. I really wish you had called or let me know as I could have organised another service for you.
I am very sorry for this inconvenience and hope it didn't ruin your stay.
