“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

What a great apartment. I can't say enough wonderful things about it. The location is absolutely perfect - so close to the old town square and the Charles Bridge. We stayed in Apartment 42 and the view from the terrace was breathtaking. We could even see the trumpeter on the tower from our bedroom window. The apartment is spacious, clean, and modernly decorated.

The only negative is that access to the hotel through the crazy streets of Prague is a bit diffficult - but that's the price you pay to be close to everything!

I would stay here again!!!

Seven of us stayed at Karlova 33 for 10 nights. The apartment is very spacious (3bdrm+2baths) and well equipped, though it's minimally decorated, which didn't bother us. A small private elevator took us to the 4th floor apartment, which was a necessity for my 81yo mother.

The apartment was clean, and the beds and the pillows were very comfortable. It was a tad noisy late at night because of the location, which would have bothered me a lot as I'm a light sleeper and sleeps with ear plugs even at home. However, the fact that the apartment was up on the 4th floor with just one window facing the street per bedroom minimized the noise, and I slept very well. There were many skylights which added to the brightness of the already airy feeling apartment.

In terms of markets, the Havelske outdoor market is only about 7 minutes walk away, and Tesco and Albert were about 10 minutes away (we walk briskly). There are tons of restaurants and cafes right outside the door, so we basically just ate breakfast in the apartment.

There were only 2 minor negatives. Even though daily maid service was supposedly available, the cleaning person only came every 3 days or so. So the kitchen trash didn't get taken away. The apartment didn't have a phone, so had I not brought my laptop, it would have been difficult to contact the agency. I used their 24h live online chat to contact them to get fresh towels and to get a bidet fixed. By the way, WiFi connection was excellent. These were minor problems for us. We really enjoyed staying at the apartment. The agency provided great service. We'll stay in their apartment again next time we are in Prague!

We lived in Apt 41 on Residence Karlova for 4 nights and just loved it! The star attraction of this place is the location - 5 mins from the old city square with the Charles Bridge less than a 10 minute walk. Space is abundant - 2 large sized bedrooms and a very well stocked kitchen. Moreover an elevator (rare in many such buildings) which was critical given our big sized bags. Finally, super kudos to the guest manager, Simona Polanska. She was amazingly helpful - stocking up groceries per our pre-placed order on email, getting concert tickets, helping with cabs and tours. She was a delight. You rarely find such quality service in high end hotels. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when we head back to this beautiful city.

We stayed in number #42-the top level two bedroom apartment with 4 adults. The location is as close the Old Town Square that you can get. It is on a very crowded and busy street because it is the main path from the Charles Bridge to the Square. If you like be in the center of everything then this is your place. At night it was a bit loud but nothing to deter you from the wondeful place. The apartment we stayed in was exactly as pictured and spacious, sunny, and had a wonderful deck to sit out on. You could not ask for more in terms of an apartment. The company itself was also easy to deal with and the free transfers to and from the apartment from the airport is a nice touch. A truly hidden gem in a beautiful city!

We booked several apartments 21, 31 and 42 for New Year 2011. My spouse and me shared apartment 31 with other pair. It has two bedrooms and salon with the kitchen. The plan of each apartment is shown here www.prague-city-apartments.cz/product/about_en_RESIDENCE_KARLOVA.html
Located 2 minutes of Old Square, basically you have everything needed inside apartment. The only thing that was missing in this one is another toilet.
Clean, nice. There is wireless.

We stayed at number 33, the 3-bedroom apartment. It has a terrace, a spacious lounge with 3 comfortable couches, a dining room with space for 6, a well-appointed kitchen and 3 huge bedrooms with big, comfortable bed. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi. The other, shared bathroom has a big shower.
The location couldn't be better, right around the corner from the Old Town Square. For such a central location, there was surprisingly little noise (my bedroom was on the street side).
Reservation and check-in were very smooth; the staff are very friendly. The free WiFi was great, too.
We did have a little misunderstanding regarding the return transfer to the airport, where they charged my credit card because of a no-show (when in fact they had got the time wrong), but this was resolved quickly and the money was refunded.
If you're sharing with a few people, this works out cheaper than most hotels, and it's a wonderful feeling to have a "home" in the middle of Prague!
