Me and my girlfriend (Young couple) who are students came here over New Year (28th Dec 2012- 3rd Jan 2013) and loved it! We were about 3mins from Old Town Square, 3mins from Tesco, 5mins from Wenceslas Square and 5mins from Charles Bridge..Perfect!
I was in contact with people from the office prior and after our stay and they are very nice! They picked us up and dropped us from the airport for a small extra fee (39EUR), any problems we had with the apartment was sorted out within a few hours and in one case a few minutes and when they took us to our apartment they gave us a map of Prague and recommended things for us to do.
The apartment is nice, it’s got everything you will need during your stay there. The radiators where good kept us nice and warm and the beds are really comfy even though they are two singles put together and not a double. Although there is no safe, there is a closet which you can lock which was where we hid our passports and valuables when we went out. Bad points I would point out is that the Internet Wi-Fi is on and off and is quite slow, there is no shower curtain which means the whole of your bathroom does get soaked when you get a shower but that’s why it is most likely a wet room and in the apartment description it said we had a City view which we didn’t we had a view of roof but it didn’t matter to us as the only time were where in the apartment was when we were sleeping, getting ready or a quick meal.
There is a restaurant and bar downstairs which is open till 4am so if you’re hungry or want a drink you can go there. One thing we were told by a restaurant promoter that in Old Town square if you drink or eat anything downstairs or outside on the terraces in any restaurant then whatever you order the price is doubled, so be careful! New town (Wenceslas Square) is more expensive than old town, I don’t know why as Old Town is much nicer! We didn’t use any taxis as were recommended not to as taxis tend to rip you off, plus it’s good to walk as you get to see loads of things and it’s all in walking distance. It is very cheap in Prague such as a Pint was around 30-50czk which is around £1-£1.50 a pint and a glass of wine is around 40-60czk which is around £1.50-£1.80 a glass depending on where you go, make sure you order wine by the glass and not the bottle as its cheaper. I would always look at the restaurant menus before you enter the restaurant so you know how much everything is. If you are going for a meal try and go to a restaurant that is off the main strip of Wenceslas Square or Old Town as it is a lot cheaper! Me and my girlfriend had a starter and a main course each and a pint and glass of wine and came to the equivalent of £12 because it wasn’t on the strip and it was really nice. Last but not least when buying things try and estimate how much would it would be if it was in pounds and work on the basis that 100czk =£3.
