We took a walk around the Mala Strana after visiting the Prague castle. Its fascinating to wander around the cobbled streets and find hidden gems at almost every corner. Aside from the shops obviously aimed at tourists, there are plenty of cute cafes and restaurants....More

Beautiful area in Prague. Lots to see; Sv Mikuláš church, Crawling Babies statue, the Piss statue and the John Lennon Wall. Lots of lovely little streets with a little river flowing through them. Lots of little shops, cafés, restaurants, a nice area to spend time.

Central hotel with good facilities. Rooms provided excellent extras such as dressing room next to en suite. Prague is a beautiful city although people not the friendliest I’ve met.

Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

We used the trams, a 3 day pass cost 1500 (about £10) Czech koruna, but also the majority of areas are in walking distance, which is a lovely way to spend time and find fabulous places by just stumbling across them. Enjoy

Please advise on this apartment (6 Replies)
Hi everyone; I'll be in Prague from Dec.27 to Dec. 31/2010, and am looking for a budget apartment to stay for 4 adults (me,wife, 2 sons 16,18). This apartment on U Luzickeho seminare 6 * Praha 1 - Mala Strana offered me 514 Euros for 4 nights (best deal so far after 2 weeks searching,central location is our 1st priority), but I couldn't find any reviews about it. Please let me know if you've stayed/heard of it. Thank you.

Hello, I am a local so I've never stayed in any apartments in Prague apart of my own, but I know the location U Luzickeho seminare very well. It's a lovely place to stay indeed, a stone throw to the medieval Charles bridge. It also seems that your apartment is facing the little Devil's stream, so you can get a quite romantic view. Fingers crossed! M.

there are 3 reviews on this site, all of which are positive. The place has only been open since the start of this year, hence the small number of reviews
