“Spacious and Practical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom for 3 nights in October. We were pleased with the apartment and the staff. It was so nice to be met at the airport by Andrew after very long flights from Seattle and driven directly to the office. Since we arrived in the morning the apartment was not quite ready, so we took care of the paperwork and they gave us directions to a nearby restaurant for some breakfast. We stopped at the office a couple more times and they were happy to answer our questions.
The apartment had a nice elevator and was very spacious with a wonderful kitchen (plenty of dishes) a dishwasher, and a washing machine. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice to have 2 sinks in the bathroom. It was within walking distance to all the sights and because it was a small street, it was quiet except for some construction at the end of the road which didn't bother us at night. We never heard any noise at all from other guests. I would recommend a good map (we like Streetwise maps) because it was easy to get lost on the side streets.
My only complaint is that the floor wasn't as clean as it should have been.

Hi pixietrout,

thank you very much for leaving us such a lovely and deatiled review here on TripAdvisor and also some great pictures of Karolina! I am pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay in Prague and found the apartment so well equipped and a good choice for your stay. I have to agree that all the small streets in the city centre can get a bit confusing, so a good map is definitely a must in Prague! I am however really sorry that you did not find the cleanliness of the apartment perfect. I have informed our housekeeping and we will give that issue more attention.

On behalf of our team I would like to thank you for choosing PCA for your stay and we hope to see you in Prague sometime soon again!

Best wishes,
Anna

Friendly front office staff showed us to the apartment, which is a short walk away and also orientated us with the map. Location is great, with a fully functional kitchen and a large supermarket TESCO just 5 mins walk away. Deco was modern, clean and nice. Our family of 4 adults & 2 children enjoyed the stay very much!

We were so happy with our stay in Prague and staying at Residence Karolina made it especially memorable. I wish we could've stayed longer (being so easy to cook our own meals even with the nice kitchen and close Tesco grocery store - and provided a high chair for our son!). It felt like a home away from home and we definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Prague. Thank you for your hospitality! Marcela was so kind and helpful.

The location is great (tram lines within a block, walk to almost everything). The apartment was well-appointed with complete kitchen, washing machine, TV, DVD player etc. This is a beautiful old building (about 1900 I think) with high ceilings, spacious rooms. We even had a tiny balcony. Everyone on the staff at Prague City Apartments was friendly, and extremely helpful, with recommendations for restaurants, and assistance with any problems. We would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a little more space, and not needing the facilities offered by a hotel. Tesco is a few blocks away, and had everything we needed for our breakfasts and snacks. Rooms are cleaned daily, unlike some apartment-hotels.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front may be slightly noisy as they are closer to the main thoroughfare, but for the mo...

Old city location, central but quiet. Large apartment with everything you could possible need including a clothes washer/dryer and a dish washer. Large fully equipped kitchen if you want to prepare your own meals - which considering the awful quality of Prague restaurants is a very good idea. Very comfortable. Note that the reception is at a separate location, which makes it a good idea to use their pickup service from the airport.

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of accomodations. The location was very close to the metro, tram and many walking distance attractions. Inside, the apartment was just lovely, Nice decor, comfortable seating, clean and renovated. Highly reccommend.

A perfect stay for any sort of traveler, whether you are a couple, family, bunch of friends. Maybe slightly on the higher tarrif but every penny is worth you spend. You have your own privacy yet connected to the staff. Very neat, well maintained and very spacious. It was hard to beleive such a large space available in Europe. Panoramic views especially from the top floor apartment with the castle view which looks astonishing in the night. Very good location and within 5-7 walk to all tourist attractions.

Room Tip: Choose an apartment on the top floor with the castle view.
