This is a wonderful place to stay but what makes it 5 star is Kristina - who runs it. She is a ball of energy,helpfulness and enthusiasm. She is mother hen to everyone staying there. She is just lovely. She arranged a taxi to meet us at the airport. As soon as we arrived she sat us down with coffee and cakes. Our apartment was huge, light, clean and very comfortable. Everything worked. Everything we could possibly need was there. The bed was big and mega comfortable. There was also a sofa bed in the sitting room supplied with linen in case it was needed.
There was good free internet and a telly.
There was a microwave, a kettle, a two ring hob and a fridge. There was no toaster.
Kristina has a small area on the ground floor which is a breakfast room plus all day cafe. For a small price she produces breakfast of most of the standard things, fresh rolls and cakes, cereals, fruit, yogurt, cheese, meat. Also she will make you toasties - toasted ham and cheese. To drink - juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate.
We really fell in love with Czech bread - rye and caraway.
Next door to the apartment is an good inexpensive place for a meal. It is called 'The Thirsty Deer'. Upstairs is a noisy smoky pub. Go downstairs and it is smoke free and peaceful. Czech people eat their main meal at lunch and have a simple evening meal of bread and meats. Perhaps this is why we found that lunch was better than supper at The Thirsty Deer.
The Aparthotel is not in the very centre of Prague. The area where it is is OK. The street was an old brewery with houses from about 1900. It is an area where normal Czech people actually live. It is not seedy. There are lots of ordinary shops and eating places . It is not like the centre - full of tourist stuff and tourists. As you come out the hotel - if you go right - the river is at the end of the street. If you turn left and left again, within a few minutes walk is Andell. Here you can pop on a Number 12 tram which takes you within about 5 minutes to the very centre. Kristina can sell you tram tickets but they are also easy to get from yellow machines at some tram stops. The instructions are in English. Also at Andell is a huge Shopping Mall with a big Tesco.
