Appia Residences is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in Europe - except a single problem, which I will explain at the end of my review.
Firstly, about the location. It is in a very quiet and unspoiled part of the city. It is close to German and US embassies, 5-6 minutes walk from the tram station. Charles Bridge is also close. The metro station is one stop away if you use the tram. You can walk to the Prague Castle in 10 minutes. However, if you will mostly visit sites on the other side of the river, it may not be the best location.
The rooms are extremely clean. Both the room and the bathroom were very spacious. The hotel and the surroundings are very quiet and the hotel has a very beautiful garden. The weather was great when I visited so I didn't feel the need to use air conditioning.
The only problem I had with the hotel was during checkout. I requested a taxi to go to the train station. After the receptionist phoned the taxi service, I saw a poster on the door about "luxury" taxi services. I learned from the receptionist that I would have to pay much higher than a standard taxi service and it is a "fixed" rate. I decided to take the tram instead and I was in the train station in about 15 minutes. Don't let them cheat you by their "luxury" taxi service. Prague is full of tourist traps, so be careful all the time.
