“Perfect place for a romantic weekend in Prague”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Perfect location, perfect apartment, perfect service. I couldn't ask for more when me and my boyfriend stayed here for weekend in Prague. It's situated in the old town of Prague only a couple of minutes from the old square, the Carls bridge, numerous bars and restaurants, shops and everything else you might need. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment and it was just perfect for the two of us! In the summertime we could also have enjoyed a nice patio. Also, the small café next door offers great breakfast and good coffee as well as a nice atmosphere. We will definitely stay here next time we go to Prague :)

Room Tip: Some apartments have stairs. Also in summertime I would recommend an apartment with patio or terrace...

Residence Retezova is in a fantastic location within easy walking distance from all the major sites. I stayed in Apartment Madrid which is a gorgeous, huge and very comfortable apartment. It has a great power shower, tidy and clean kitchen with everything you need, huge TV and DVD player and a very comfortable bed. I slept so well! I would recommend going for the 'smart rate' where you get a discount for paying in advance. No need to get the bed and breakfast rate as breakfast at Cafe Ebel next door charges only 160K for breakfast. You can also buy food and eat in. The daily maid service means that someone else does the washing up and cleans your apartment for you every day, the height of luxury! For anyone who wants to be in the middle of the Old Town and have a sense of privacy and quiet, this is the place to be!

This is a very good place to stay in Prague. It is just off the Main Square (but enough so it is not loud at night) and easy to walk to anywhere. The rooms are very comfortable and the age of the place gives it atmosphere. All the staff there were friendly and eager to please -- down to going off to purchase tickets for us to the Sparta Praha ice hockey game after the website wasn't working properly. We look forward to coming back.

This was the most perfect hotel to stay. Clean - Quiet - Fantastic Location - Staff extremely helpful. We went to visit our daughter who was studying abroad during Thanksgiving week. We have been to Europe many times but it was our first Prague trip. Can't say enough about how much we loved the city and a part of that was the great experience we had in this hotel.

A hotel really lived up to the dazzling beauty of this city, which now we fell in love. In a week we never stopped, we have seen countless places, monuments, museums, churches, shops, but we never had to take a bus or the metro to move because he was always available to walk all within a mile. It should also be noted that even though the hotel is in the historic center closer and business center of Prague, its place in the small street Retezova makes it quiet and then away from noises day and night. Service and kindness were always impeccable for any request.

Room Tip: Given the breadth of the room, divided in 2 floors with a hob, I wanted more luggage space: the floo...

This is a top notch accomodation and a great alternative to hotels. I stayed in the Berlin room for 3 nights with my girlfriend in December. The location is great: only few minutes away from the cenral square and Karluv bridge, and yet the street is small and not so crowded. The apartment was really spacious with large bedroom, separate kitchen&dining area where you can cook your own food if necessary. A huge plus at least during the warmer seasons is the entrance to a small enclosed yard that was shared with another apartment. These two apartments sharing the yard would be really cool choice if you are staying there in a larger group! We didn't ask much help from the staff during our short stay but they seemed very nice and helpfull in case you want some tips where to go and what to do in Prague. High speed wireless. No complaints whatsoever!

We spent a week in Prague from 30th November 2012 - 7th December 2012. This was a last minute booking so our options were limited. The reviews looked great for Hotel Retezova so we booked. We were given the Singapore room, which has a very steep staircase and doesn't have a very homely feel, as the lounge area is very small. But, as we had booked last minute, I couldn't complain. The room was clean, warm and we could open the windows when it got too hot. We approached reception and asked if there were any other rooms available and were informed that the hotel was completely booked out for the weekend, but that we could be moved on Sunday The staff were friendly and helpful (and we bothered them a LOT during our stay for all kinds of recommendations!), and as promised, on Sunday we were moved to Room #5, which was much larger and was on one level. We were very impressed at the standard of this room and hotel. It was a one minute walk to Old Town Square and about 5 minutes walk to Charles Bridge. As we were in Prague for a week it was nice to have a room we could come back to and have a little rest in before heading out again, although if you were only in Prague for a few days the original room would be fine as well as you wouldn't spend much time inside. We couldn't believe how cheap this hotel was (about $100AUD per night) for the standard and location.
My only negative comment would be that the pillows were quite lumpy, and the bed in the Singapore room was very hard. But this is very minor in the overall positives of this hotel.
I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Prague!
