It is a place just ideal for a visit to Prague, just a few steps from the Charles bridge in the centre of Mala strana and a short walk to Stare mesto
Beautiful place, very clean and quiet , comfy and everything you need is there
Would recommend it without any hesitation

“Prague pied a terre”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in the Tortuga studio apartment for a few days in August and found it nearly ideal for our purposes. The building is a refurb of an old one overlooking a quiet cobbled courtyard. The position is fantastic being just a few minutes way from Charles Bridge and below the Castle. It is, however, a small room without a/c so when it is hot (which it was) cooking next to your bed is not practical and having the windows wide open made the noise from the early morning deliveries to McDonalds across the cobbles rather annoying. Having said that, the bed is beautifully comfortable and peace descends again once the deliveries have been made. The studio was beautifully clean and the bathroom & shower good. The owner and her family are helpful and friendly and made booking was made very easy.

“Great cental location yet quiet”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The apartment is in a beautiful old building very near Karlov Most, across the river from the Old Town. Malostranska street is a busy tourist street but the apartment faces a quiet courtyard with a fountain (and a McDonalds Cafe but that was not noisy either). It was very hot in Prague during our stay and there is no AC as building regulations don't permit it in historic buildings so it was great to be able to sleep with windows open.

We arrived by train. Veronika told us how much to expect to pay for a taxi from the train station, and just as well or we would have got ripped off, even by a metered taxi. Unless you have a lot of luggage there is no need to take a taxi however. The public transport in Prague is excellent, cheap and easy to use and a tram station is 1 minute away (ask owner or her son for instructions to train station by tram).

The Malostranska Beseda restaurant around the corner comes recommended by the owner and is indeed excellent - great views, great food and good value.

The apartment is located in a center location that is very convenient to most Prague attractions (within walking distance). The unit is very clean. The owner has very quick response and easy to work with. The only negative is there is no AC. This should not be a problem for most of time. But when we were there, there was a heat wave. The high temperature was in the mid 90s. Other than that, it is a great place to stay.

The owners met us and gave us same great recommendations. They were also available to assist and give advice whenever we needed help. The apartment was very comfortable and the location could not have been better. Internet was fast. It was a real pleasure to stay at Residence Mostecka,Tortuga.

“Wonderful accommodation in every way!”

This apartment is perfectly situated in walking distance of restaurants, shops, trams and major sights - 50m from the Charles Bridge. It is modern, spacious and fully self contained for 2 people. Wifi available and worked well. Though the street is busy, the apartment has large windows with a very pleasant outlook over a quiet courtyard. We had arranged a prepaid taxi which worked very well and we were met in front of the apartment by the delightful niece of the owner, who continued to be most attentive during our stay. We would totally recommend this accommodation and hope everyone enjoys their stay in this fairytale city as much as we did.
