Location good, although quite far from tram/metro (approx. 10 mins.). We got apartment A5 which consists of two large rooms (living room with kitchenette and bedroom). All furniture and kitchen utensils from IKEA, old TV set with 8 channels, only one in English (CNN). Windows on the street. At 6 am delivery cars stop just in front of the building to deliver goods to a nearby "Zabka" market. No possibility to sleep longer than till 6. Apartments are situated in an old building so there are Junkers gas heaters for hot water - be careful while taking a shower because the water changes suddenly from cold to boiling hot.
Forget about an early breakfast if you want to leave early (earlier than at 7:30 am). The lady who prepares breakfast told us at 7:00 am that there was no possibility to eat anything before 7:30 am (even a sandwich) and that's it - so we had to go to the nearby market and buy something to eat.
Nobody at the restaurant which also serves as a reception desk speaks English.
Also be careful when paying for the stay. If you have a Euro account and a Euro credit card they will charge you with the amount in Czech Koronas and the exchange rate is not always favorable for a client.
Averall, a place in need of better management, although its location in Mala Strana under Hradczany hill is a big advange.
