These apartments are not posh or modern, but provide spacious, convenient reasonably priced accommodations. Perfect easy access to all the highlights of Prague. Including the Tesco :) Comfortable beds, plenty of seating, high ceilings, lots of windows that open wide. We paid less than 80 GBP per night in August.
You will need this phone number after booking online to confirm before your arrival (and it is difficult to find): ---------
I'd suggest booking transportation with the management company to/from the train station or airport (it is near a tram stop, but you have to get the keys from a location on the other side of the river), and Prague taxi drivers are notoriously crooked (our guide knew of one party that had been charged about 300 USD for a 15 minute ride). The driver can check you in and should have the keys with him(although ours didn't and this required 20 extra minutes in heavy traffic), saving you getting across the river to pick up the keys on your own. Prague is not easy to navigate for a newcomer.
The apartment was clean, but as it is older, it does not "sparkle" clean. No directions were provided to the washing machine, and our apartment did not have a dryer, but when I requested one, a drying rack was provided (Prague was the middle stop on our 10-day family holiday, so I planned on some quick laundry loads during our 3 days here). The kitchen has the basics (gas hob, cooker, micro, toaster). The hair dryer did not work, but I didn't bother asking for a replacement. Our apartment had a large tub with the shower, so my 7 year old was quite happy.
****** If you are awakened easily, either travel with a sound machine or white noise app or do not book this apartment. The lift is slow and old, so discourteous guests bump their wheelie luggage down the marble interior stairs very loudly quite early in the morning (too much work to pick it up and carry it?!?!) The common halls and stairs are not carpeted, so the sound carries. Also, you could be disturbed by the cafe in the ground floor courtyard (it didn't bother us).
