“Excellent proprietor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

The proprieter Kristina absolutely made this trip for us. We arrived pretty early at 10am and she immediately offered us refreshments. She then took out a map and showed us the must go to places. We went during a really good weather spell where it was warm and sunny( tshirt weather) and she insisted we walk everywhere. The Aparthotel is in close proximity to a Andel tube station and also some good tram lines. There is a massive shopping centre and if you are self catering a very largeTesco. It's also within walking distance to the river and Vysehrad which is very picturesque and peaceful.

Our room was large and very clean. It has a large fridge and a spacious hallway which the bathroom hangs off. The shower was excellent and bathroom facilities in general were very good. Kristina is so welcoming and friendly and we were also able to get good information about local places to eat that served local food. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and this is largely due to Kristina's excellent hosting skills both for where we were staying and for the City as a whole.

We thoroughly recommend it and will definitely stay there again when I return to Prague.

Room Tip: Email the proprieter Kristina if you book through a 3rd party especially Expedia as they don't...

My wife, our baby and I, stayed a week. Prague is a lovely city and we were fortunate to be staying at Aparthotel City 5. The hotel rooms are very nice, great value and the location in the Andel district is very convenient. There are many amenities in the immediate area, you are a 30 min walk from the old town, with metro and street car surface just around the corner. But what makes this a really great place to stay is Kristina. Kristina is incredibly helpful and friendly, rarely have I felt so welcome while traveling. From helping us organize a taxi from the airport before we arrived, to advice on places to visit, a friendly chat over breakfast or a beer in the cafe, Kristina makes Aparthotel City 5 a real pleasure to stay.

My wife and I stayed at Aparthotel City 5 last year (2011). Picked up from the airport by Kristina who entertained us all the way to the city. She had many wonderful anecdotes to share and was oozing friendliness and enthusiasm. It was pouring rain and she didn't miss a beat the whole trip. A beer to wet the whistle after our trip was well received. Cheers!

We were only in Prague for five nights and saw quite a lot of the city - once again, heartfelt thanks to Kristina who gave us some very useful tips on what to see, costs etc.

We would highly recommend this hotel - if ever we are back in Prague we would definitely stay here again. No hesitation!

Room Tip: Maybe try for a room away from the 'main street', it can be a little loud re: locals leaving...

Based on the glowing reviews of Aparthotel City 5 we booked with Kristina for our (first) week long holiday in this sumptuous city. And we were so delighted with our choice. From the moment we arrived and the complementary refreshment till leaving, Kristina lavished unstinting attention. Breakfast was great and her by now famous toasties never disappointed! Ever cheerful Kristina really provided a unique experience for us.

Our top floor accommodations was spacious, very comfortable and quiet; absolutely no disturbances during nights’ sleep. The location was perfect for us. We love walking and do much of it. There was day long warm spring sunshine every day, perfect holiday weather. It was lovely walking along the attractive river embankments, both sides, especially at sunset and occasionally also at sunrise.

We walked to all the attractions and only took the tram to ones such as the National Gallery at Veletrzni. We walked around the lovely trails on nearby Petrin Hill and park and enjoyed a sunny afternoon at Vyšehrad.

We highly recommend Aparthotel City 5 and without hesitation would stay there on a return visit.

We booked a 3 night stay here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. I was initially nervous that after all the hype that we might be let down. However as soon as we arrived Kristina was there with a great welcome and a beer. She chatted with us about our trip and made us feel instantly at home.

She upgraded our room due to the length of our travel from Australia(via Ireland). She was so helpful that it made me wonder about the distinct lack of service I get from other places and I've stayed in a lot of places. This place is simply outstanding. I even forgot my passport and Kristina organised a taxi to send it to me in the airport.

The apartment is situated in Andel which is class as its beside the river and about 30 mins walk to the centre of the city. However the metro(which is excellent and cheap,1 euro for a trip) is only 5 minutes away. This takes you into the heart of the city and back out again. Trust me after all the walking in Prague you will be glad of the metro.

Breakfast is incredible value at only 4 euro and includes a full continental breakfast as well as coffeee, tea and toasties!! Toasties are yum. We ate there every day.

People are giving negatives to the location but I feel the opposite. It is away from all the tacky souvenir shops and the overpriced restaurants and bars. In Andel the prices of everything are cheap. There is a Tesco there that sells everything and is incredibly cheap. In locals restaurants Beer was 1 euro for a .5l Glass. Food was cheap but deicious. For a couple we got two meals and three beers for 8 euro. Try the thirsty deer pub next door for some authentic beer and food.

Czech Food is essentially Pork and Soup. Its good to try but very heavy. I suggest alternating between local and european dishes.The beer is outstanding. Make sure you try Lemon Beer. Simply gorgeous.

Make sure to so the free Prague royal walking tour which Kristina recommended. Gives you a great insight into the history of the city. I was sad to be leaving and when i return i will return to this aparthotel.

Thank You Kristina

Everything was excellent

My daughter and I stayed here in October and loved it. When she had the opportunity to go to Prague again earlier this month, Kristina was the first person we contacted. Once again, Kristina and her hotel made it a wonderful visit to a special city.

The hotel and Kristina provided wonderful service and accommodations! The location is very good as you can walk to most of the tourist sites. The apartment was very clean and modern looking. Our only regret is that we had to cut our trip short because our baby was not having a "fun" time. We hope to come back to Prague and stay here again!

Room Tip: The apartment rooms are worth the extra money.
