“Words can't describe how great this place is!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Kristina is my favourite person in Europe!!! I honestly can't say enough good things about her or her hotel. Long before we even got there I knew I'd like her just from the emails we had exchanged, and as soon as I met her I knew I'd been spot on about how great she is. She really loves her city and her enthusiasm is infectious. We followed her tips on where to go and had the most amazing time in Prague. It was by far my favourite part of my 6 week European trip. Kristina went out of her way to ensure our stay was perfect, and our chats at breakfast were a real highlight.

Our room was huge! Very clean, good shower, good wifi connection. Breakfast was delicious - I still dream about Kristina's toasties!! We had been travelling for a while by the time we got to Prague and to have someone look after us like that was exactly what we needed! Kristina made us promise to return to Prague every 2 years at least and I will do my absolute best - I just fell in love with the amazing city and would never even consider staying anywhere else. Thank you so much Kristina!!! We miss you!

Kristina is amazing and her hospitality is what makes this hotel so special. After an incredibly long day of travel, with unanticipated delays, we safely made it to Prague very late. Kristina ensured she stayed up late (almost midnight) and gave us her cell phone number to personally greet us and to make sure the taxi from the train station didn't attempt to over charge us. Her hospitality was such a breath of fresh air. She immediately made us feel at home. In fact, one of her first comments "welcome home".

Kristina provided a great overview of the city and is clearly very passionate about Prague and all that the city has to offer. Kristina anticipates her guest's needs, without you having to ask. For example, she knew we were also planning to depart late. We didn't have to ask, she immediately offered to stow our luggage, to make arrangements for us to access the hotel later that evening, as well as transport to the train station.

The rooms were huge! Lots of space, with a kitchenette and small dining area. Breakfast was okay; nothing out of the ordinary (simple buffet) but certainly convenient. All of the major attractions are a short walk and/or are easily accessible via public transport.

Thanks for the hospitality! Enjoyed our stay!

WOW! What a great stay. As every other advisor has said, Kristina is amazing. And believe it or not, the rave reviews still don't do her hospitality, generosity, and warmness justice. She is an incredible host and you can tell how much she loves her city, and how much she wants you to love it too. When you get in, she welcomes you with a coffee, some food, and a talk about the "bests" around Prague. After a flight, that time to relax, breathe, and get acquainted is invaluable.

The location is great - seriously. It is in a residential section, but right down the street is the Andel station which houses the "B" metro line connecting you to Old Town Square area, and trams like the 20 and the 12 which can take you to Lesser Town near Prague Castle. We had gotten a three day public transport pass which was a great investment.

The room was clean, bright, and quiet. I couldn't say enough good things about this place if I tried. In fact, I'm writing this review from the couch of our room at the hotel, because I didn't want to wait until we got stateside to write our review.

Kristina! We miss you. Ok, folks, I can't recommend this hotel enough. I walked in the door and the owner/operator, Kristina, threw a beer in my left hand, a map in my right hand, and sat me down to explain her beautiful city and the best way to "tackle" it. She was extremely helpful and literally JUMPED to satisfy any of our requests.

The hotel is located south of the castle on the west side of the river in a very "local" area near a giant shopping mall and many pubs/restaurants. Perfect place to avoid tourists and enjoy the local vibe. Nothing better than sitting in a bar in which the only english you hear is coming from you! Don't let the map full you, however, the hotel is an easy walk to the river, old city center, castle, etc. Prague is a city best explored on foot and this hotel is a great launching pad.

Oh, try the restaurant next door. Traditional Czech cuisine and the pork knuckle is wonderful. Kristina can help.

Kristina, we really enjoyed our stay because of you. Thanks!

We were welcomed to the aparthotel having ordered their 'taxi service' which was prompt, efficient and a bargain at 580CK - it took all the hassle out of trying to figure out transport early in the morning.

Kristina welcomed us like we were long-lost friends, making us coffee and forcing us to eat doughnuts! She sat down with us and explained the best parts of the city to see and suggested an order to do it in without being patronising - just supremely helpful. Her English is absoutely excellent and she is the kind of patron that more expensive hotels can only dream of employing - the big chains could do with a lesson in customer service from Kristina!

The apartment that we had was clean and quiet on the 4th floor and there is a lift to save your legs at the end of a long day in the city. The shower was powerful and the bed comfortable.

The location was great as far as we were concerned as it's a 20 minute walk to Charles Bridge or a quick walk and about 5 minutes on the tram. This meant that the local area was much quieter than the tourist district which was great. There's a huge shopping complex about 5 minutes walk away with a big Tesco if you wanted to make your own breakfast but frankly, the breakfast that Kristina offers is great value for money with freshly made different types of coffee to order, the 'best toasties in Prague', and encouragement to eat her out of house and home!

We also ate in the Hungry Deer two doors up at night which served great value traditional Czech cuisine in a clean and pleasant atmosphere.

Don't come here if you're after a five star hotel in the tourist district but definitely come here if you want a warm, friendly, helpful, atmospheric, clean and excellent value place to stay in beautiful Prague which is ideally located for exploring the whole of the city.

Room Tip: Being on the fourth floor in the corner meant that we had no external noise.

Up above expectations in all query we had about being hosted in Prague!

Not only the (wonderful) city, the hotel gave us the opportunity to relax in a clean, cheap, organized and homelike place. Very well located. Excellent breakfast.

But there was a special point: the service - specifically "Kristina", the hotel owner.
Very attentive and careful, she gave us primeval tips to enjoy prague to the fullest.

Kristina welcomes you to the hotel like you're family. Very warm and friendly! She's the perfect host...extremely efficient, speaks perfect English, and has plenty of recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants, transportation...

There were four of us staying in an apartment with two rooms; one kitchen/living room combo with a pullout that two of us shared and a bedroom with two twin beds. Kristina gave us four different colored towels, which made it really easy for four adults to share one bathroom. The rooms are spotless, and coffee and tea is included (a broad selection of teas).

Breakfast downstairs each morning at 830am is a great way to start...its a European style buffet with the usual cheese and meat, bread, butter, jams, a few cereals and yogurt. The alternatives are to either visit the local Czech bakery or Paul close by and stand up for a pastry and coffee, or walk over to the old town to find a traditional English breakfast. But for the price and convenience, not to mention the great "toasties" Kristina makes (hot grilled cheese and ham sandwiches), you can't beat her breakfast. Its only 100 crowns!

With only two days to explore Prague, Kristina provided her locals recommendation of where to go and how to get there. We followed her plan and it worked very well. There's free Wifi so its easy to do research too.

For the type of travel we like, the Aparthotel 5 is perfect! I'd recommend it to any travelers looking for a home away from home while visiting Prague.
