Entrance was hard to find. Booked this via Booking.com and entrance looked nothing like the photos. It's just off the main street via a small dodge looking alley way. It's hidden inside the entrance of a mini market (i.e. convenient store). Lots of construction around. My friends walked me back every night, but they said it's common in eastern Europe. So maybe I'm just not used to it.

it has those old lifts without proper doors. Stairs look like vacant buildings. But I know it's meant to safe so tried not to think too much.

Room is spacial and basic but clean, which is most important. No heating. Walls as thin as paper. I could hear every word from next door (apparently they had a nice meal in London before coming to Prague!)

Luggage stored up to 6pm only. If arriving late, make sure you tell them as there isn't 24 hr reception. they need to pass the keys to the convenient store to let you in on the first night.

Very central location. 10 mins stroll to the old town square and the astronomical clock and a short walk to Charles bridge.

It's really difficult to find! There is no sign, but you have to follow the sign "European Traveller...". The room is very nice, with new Ikea furniture and you have everything you need. In our bathroom (room 19) we had problems with the shower, as the water didn't go down the sink. The location was perfect as you can walk everywhere and the Astronomical Clock is about 15min away. Around the corner you can find a big supermarket!

Room Tip: Room facing to the inner garden is really quiet. Write down the phone number, just in case if you ca...

THE OFFER:
I booked the appartment about 2 or 3 nights before our departure to Prague at 95 Euros for 2 nights (Friday 9th - Sunday 11th of August). Central National Apartments Prague (the same firm as Old Prague Aparthotel) was rated 8.3/10 and the same type of room costed the next day 175 euros for the same period of time. So truly a great deal, it pays to check several times ahead for new offers in Prague. Besides I booked on ryanairhotels.com and got a 10 euro flight voucher to use it on the next 9 months. They are the same as booking.com but u have to open the site under this name in order to get the voucher.

HOW TO ARRIVE:
We found it a bit hard the first time in the evening. The next days we realised it was quite easy. What u need to remember is that after u find the New Yorker store on Wenceslas Square (huge, u cannot miss it) u have to head towards the river on Narodni Street and then 100 meters away u will find the Humanic store. Besides it there is a small tunell towards the appartments. Many reviews said it might be scary, but it didn t seem to me. There were a lot of women passing by alone in this area, practically in the city centre.
Btw, the best city centre map I found in Prague was the free one in the 6 STARBUCKS Cafes, they even have a free tour offer. Charvatova Street is clearly pointed on it, along with most important attractions.

RECEPTION:
There is no 24h Reception. After I let the owner know we would arriving after 10 pm she told me I was supossed to take the keys from the minimarket found in the same building. The chinese people owning it were very friendly and helped us till the elevator, with the entrance password and so on.

OUR ROOM:
Our app was number 4 at first floor and I can reccommend it because the view was towards the inner garden, so it was quiet. The bed was big enough and cosy. We had almost everything we might need, even a washmaschine. Liked the decoration in green and white.

THINGS TO BE IMPROVED:
- although overall everything important was clean to my taste - sheets, bathroom etc, the back of the TV was full of dust, and some corners had some of it too. So 3 stars to superficial cleaning.
- the kettle smelled funny and was not so clean either, so I couldn t use it. The same problem with some glasses. I had to boil water in a pot to make coffee. So some dish washing soap and a sponge are in need.
- some instructions on how to use the stove could be useful too (it is modern actually). It took me a while to realise it.
- only a almost transparent curtain at the bedroom window felt quite strange. There were other windows in front of ours.

CONCLUSION:
Overall only 4 stars. 5 stars though for position (10 mins stroll to Old Town Square), great value for money, bright look of the app, nice decoration with good furniture and friendly helpful staff.

Room Tip: Appartment number 4 at first floor has the view towards the small inner garden and is quiet.

This entire place needs an immediate renovation from elevator to windows. In the apartments, furniture and the kitchen are good, bathroom is not the best. There is a construction going nearby which can wake you up at 6 in the morning. The building and the area are a bit scary in the night time.
There is nothing provided in the apartments, not even a soap. This place is not an ideal place for daily accommodation, it is more like a monthly rental apartment.
Though I booked for two nights, I left after the first night. The girl at the reception was kind to cancel my second night booking.
