“Nearly ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed December 6, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We recently stayed at this apartment (although the booking says Wenceslas 5).

It was our first visit to Prague so the complimentary transfer from the airport was appreciated. We were met at the apartment and facilities, services and signposting to necessary amenities were helpfully explained to us. A problem with the WiFi was addressed quickly.

The apartment is exactly as depicted in the photographs and was warm, comfortable, well equipped and centrally placed for Wenceslas Square and the Old Town. There is a huge Tesco in the next street, a currency exchange a few doors away along with an excellent Chinese restaurant and a mini mart under the apartments. The apartment is on the 6th floor reached through nondescript, unmarked heavy doors from the street and then a small cobbled area leading to the apartment entrance. There is a useful small lift. The entrance looks rather neglected but this is a residential block in a city street and the apartment itself overlooks offices in a quadrangle area without traffic which makes it very quiet and peaceful.

We found the apartment excellent in every respect and very spacious and well equipped. The two king size beds are huge and the bedding struggles to cover it at times. The pillows were small and flat which didn't make for comfortable sleeping.

The greeter helpfully arranged a taxi transfer back to the airport (this is chargeable obviously)
but unfortunately, despite waiting 45 mins for it in the cold, it failed to arrive. Naturally no fault
of the owners but as the keys have to be left in the apartment on leaving, it was a bitterly cold
wait on the street. We were very fortunate to be able to flag down a taxi who agreed to take us for a reasonable price (taxis can be mercenary in pricing there!).

Because this apartment and the arrangements are so excellent in virtually every respect, we have marked it accordingly. However there is an issue which concerned us and is easily addressed. Being on the 6th floor and the bedrooms being in the attic reached by a rather tricky wooden spiral staircase, we were concerned that there were no smoke detectors or fire prevention/advice of any kind in the apartment. And this block does not have an external fire escape. Because the bedroom windows are situated in the ceiling it would be impossible to escape this area so an early warning smoke detector in the hallway is essential. It is a no smoking apartment but there was often a strong smell of tobacco smoke on the landings.

I understand this isn't a mandatory requirement in lettings there (as it is in the UK), but for us, it was a major safety consideration and hope the owners take the suggestion seriously.

However, overall an excellent apartment and very helpful owners.

Liked best: Central but quiet location
Liked least: Lack of fire safety in the apartment

“Apartment was as good if not better than we expected!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We spent a few days searching for an apartment in Prague on the internet and we're delighted with our choice. It was perfect for my husband , myself and our 2 adult children. Location was central to the all the sightseeing spots in Prague. Chris was very helpful & welcoming on arrival and Brian from 'Escape to Prague' was excellent in his response to our booking which was very reassuring when booking over the web. We loved our stay in Prague & look forward to visiting again sometime and we would definitely stay in this apartment again.

My husband & I, along with 2 friends spent five nights in the apartment. It was exactly like the pictures on the internet - which is often not the case! The rental included a free taxi transfer from the airport to the apartment which is very conviently located near Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square. Chris, the manager, met us at the taxi. Before entering the apartment, he showed us where the supermarket was located, as well as where we could exchange money. The apartment was very spacious, and bedding was comfortable. There is a washing machine, drying rack, ironing board and iron in the apartment. He also told us about the "must-see" activities in the area and gave us easy directions on which train/bus combination we would need to take back to the airport. There are lots of restaurants nearby, everything was in easy walking distance. I can't wait to go back to Prague and would definitely stay there again.
