What can I say about Aparthotel 5 that hasn't already been said?

Kristina is an extremely helpful & friendly host.
The building has a fantastic location (steps away from metro/bus & shopping mall).
The rooms are large, comfortable and clean, honestly felt like home.
The price can't be beat for the value.
You aren't going to find anywhere else in Prague with this much character, it felt like living in an actual apartment building and being apart of a small community.

Why are you still reading? Just book the apartment already!!

Room Tip: Ask for a street view to people watch & please eat at the restaurant next door!

This is a really great place to stay in Prague. A bit out of town, so it is quiet and with excellent transport links into the centre of town. Kristina knows everything you need to know and delivers a wonderful welcome and service, with a huge smile and fab coffee to boot. The breakfast is simple and tasty and good value. rooms are bright, large and clean. What more could you want? If we are in Prague again, we will be back for sure.

Due to a hotel booking mix-up hubby and I were left with no hotel in a city we have never been to before. Thanks to TA we found Aparthotel City 5. We sent the hotel a last minute email inquiring on a room availability. Our email was promptly answered by Kristina herself, luckily she had a room available for our stay. We arrived at the hotel next day, a bit early in the morning, and was greeted by Kristina "Hello! Hello! Welcome! How do you want your coffee?" Talk about a warm welcome! We immediately felt at ease and knew right away we made the right choice.

The room we had was quite spacious and had more than everything we needed. It was simply furnished and very clean. The Wifi was good too. We availed of the hotel's free laundry service. Just talk to the laundry manager. Who else? Kristina! Every morning we were served coffee of our choice. Breakfast was plentiful, bread, pastries, fruits, yoghurt, cereals and Kristina's famous ham and cheese toasted sandwiches.

All the high ratings given to this hotel is truly deserved. We will be recommending this hotel to our family and friends visiting Prague. Thank you Kristina for making our Prague experience extra memorable! You're definitely one of a kind!

Room Tip: Since the hotel is located along the main road, it tends to be a little noisy with the traffic. If y...

You know that you are special when Kristina calls you a regular customer. This was our second stay and certainly not our last. We love Aparthotel because Kristina is just so wonderful. She is really a great hostess. She makes an awesome ham and cheese pannini and coffee to your liking. She is so helpful so that you get the most out of your trip. This was our neice's first trip to Europe and Kristina went out of her way to make her feel special. Outside of Kristina the hotel itself is in a great place. We stayed in the apartment just like last time, hopped on the metro to get to all the fabulous tourist destinations and came home each night feeling like we were at home. When we go back next year we will stay here again. We love it.

Room Tip: Buy your metro tickets from Kristina. Tram 12 will take you to the Charles Bridge and the Castle...

I think this is the first 5 star review I've given on TripAdvisor. I felt compelled to write this review because of how wonderful Kristina made the experience for my wife and I during our brief two night stay in Prague. Her energy, enthusiasm and love for Prague were infectious. She oriented us with a map and all the major areas to hit during our stay. She gave me my first meal in Prague--a Staropramen beer and a chocolate donut (somewhere, Homer Simpson is jealous)! She just made us feel welcome and excited to see and experience Prague and its people. Really, if she ever wants to quite the hotel gig, she needs to be hired by the Czech Board of Tourism.
This place is conveniently located just outside the Andel metro stop. We did get a little disoriented as there are multiple exits from the metro. TIP: If you exit and are next to a bus terminal, keep walking in the direction of the buses until you reach the intersection and you'll see the street you need to be on (Vltavaska); otherwise, if you exit and are next to a mall, you'll need to head in the opposite direction of the KFC for about 2 minutes until you reach said intersection.
As others have said, this place is about a 15-20 minute walk to the Old Town/Charles Bridge area as well as the Prague Castle/Petrin Hill. Not as central as some people may like, but great for helping to keep off the pounds from all the food/beer you'll be consuming. It's also a quick 10 minutes to the Vysehrad area which is supposedly known as the most romantic area in Prague and has some great views of the city. You'll also find a Tesco supermarket on the ground floor of a shopping mall not even 5 minutes away.
The room was one of the larger ones we enjoyed during our six city tour of Europe, with plenty of room for our two large luggage. The room had a little fridge and kitchenette and the bed was suitably comfortable.
Public transportation is readily accessible given the proximity of the metro stop as well as the various street trams that will take you towards town but, honestly, the area is so safe and walkable that you should save your money for souvenirs/food.
At the end of our stay, Kristina was able to exchange our leftover Krowns into Euros for us as well as hold our luggage after we checked out since our train didn't leave until later that night. She really is as great as everyone says she is.
Save yourself some money and stay here--your wallet, your belly and your mind will thank you.

My wife and I spent 3 nights here and we are in agreement with all the positive comments regarding the stay and Kristina. She always seems to be there available to help out. Nice room on first floor was fine for 2 people. It was clean and very quiet at night. What a nice change of pace from the large chain hotels. Location was perfect. Just one warning...we were tired one day and choose to grab a cab back to the hotel. We could tell the cab driver was going out of his way to increase the fare and kept making excuses that it was a 'short cut'. We should have made a price in advance before getting ripped off.
Kristina's car service to/from the airport was fine. Suggest you use it. No hesitation recommending this hotel 100%

The Aparthotel5 was ideal. We stayed for over a week with our 13 year old twins. Kristina was amazing. The facilities were great , close to Adel shops while it was easy to access everything by tram or metro and come back to peace and quiet for the night.Obviously the best place to stay in Prague! You can get to the airport by metro and bus 100 from Zlicin for next to nothing. Don't miss Prague zoo. ( Kristina's idea)
