“Best hotel experience EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We spent 3 wonderful weeks at the Aparthotel City 5. This was our second stay at this lovely hotel and we are already planning our next visit. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that was sparkly clean. The queen size bed was new and very comfortable, the shower had instant hot water with great water pressure, there was a kitchenette, dining area, couch, TV and lots of closet space. There was no street noise, even though the apartment overlooked the street (thank you nice, new, double [triple?] pane windows). The hotel is located a couple of blocks from a metro and bus station, a large food market, a shopping mall and several very good restaurants. It's only 3 blocks from the river and then a beautiful 20 minute stroll will take you past the Dancing House to the Charles Bridge. To top this all off, the lovely, multilingual and incomparable Kristina is the best hotel owner/manager ever! She is truly AMAZING, as are her breakfast Toasties! From the moment you make your reservation, Kristina's magic begins to make your visit to Prague one you'll remember and hold dear for years to come. Thank you, Kristina!

Kristina is a perfect hostess. She made our stay in Praque absolutely magical from the moment we arrived. Her place was in a perfect location with a major metro stop only 2 blocks away. We could see the Danube from her front door. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing with her special "toasties". She gave us a map and directed us in what we must do and see in her magical city. We will definitely return!!!

This hotel is all about Christina who runs the place and immediately makes you feel like you've finally arrived home. The hospitality began for us with a complimentary coffee and pastry, before launching into her hour long presentation of the places we were required to cover during our short stay. She is the real deal, with (I believe) genuine feelings for her guests. She even offers a complimentary laundry service. She also organized a dentist for me (over the road), and came over with me in case translation was needed. The dentist was not high tech but very good BTW.

The hotel is not luxurious but it is comfortable, there is a lift, the wifi is reliable and it’s walking distance to the Historical centre. There is a big new super modern shopping mall around the corner.

At 65 Euros per night I don’t think it’s cheap, but relative to other hotels in Prague I think it represents good value and is on the lower end of the price scale.

The breakfast also represents good value, but more importantly it provides you with a chance to socialize and meet the other guests, while Christina’s huge personality and fast wit is the thread that ties it all together.

A fantastic place to stay. Kristina is such a fantastic host. As soon as we arrived she got us a drink and sat down with us with a map to explain how to get the most out of our break. We were over for a wedding that was at 3 different places during the day. She helped us find where they were on the map.
The apartments were clean and comfortable and you are far enough away from the centre to be away from all the stag do noise but near enough to get into the centre fairly easily (a 20 min walk along the river).
Breakfast was superb. The toasties are a must!
For the price it's a fantastic find. Friendly, clean and quiet. We would definitely stay here again if staying in Prague. THANK YOU KRISTINA!!!

This is a wonderful place to stay if you're ever in Prague. The manager/owner, Kristina, bends over backwards to inform and take care of your needs - she is fantastic. The place is 5 minutes walk from the Metro and 15 minutes from the tourist areas. Great restaurants are everywhere. The rooms are spacious; thanks for the upgrade, and nicely furnished. Breakfast is extra but very nice - coffee/tea and other drinks are complimentary as well as as CNN & BBC on the television. My only negative comes from me living in a quiet, rural part of Colorado - Prague is a noisy city and can be disturbing especially at night.

Excellent place to stay for your Prague vacation. The owner, Kristina, is AWESOME! She welcomed us right in and gave us a quick "must-do" list. The room was comfortable and very clean. The only drawback is that it is on a busy road and its really loud in the room when the windows are open--easy fix--bring earplugs. Definitely recommend eating breakfast at the hotel to start your day off... make sure you try Kristina's famous "Toasties." Thoroughly enjoyed it and WILL be going back!!!

Room Tip: It's a bit loud when the windows are open. Make sure to bring ear plugs.

The hotel is a nice place situated roughly 20 minutes walk away from the city center (or 5 min from the subway). It features spacious rooms, and a wonderful and helpful staff. It's a small family run establishment and the welcome you get when you arrive is very pleasant. They give you a thorough introduction to the city, and help you plan your stay in a great way.

The rooms are a bit warn, but cozy. They feature a mini fridge and safe as well as cooking and cutlery. The wifi works fairly well across the hotel.

Overall I would recommend this to anyone planning a stay in Prague!
