I stayed in Prague for 6 nights and was thoroughly happy with Atlante. Reception is manned until 6pm with helpful tips on getting around (nearby laundry place, maps, etc.) but otherwise, it's like having your own apartment in Prague.
Loved: Having a kitchen with a Tesco's just about 5 minutes away (right next to the metro) so was able to whip up some comfort food after spending a month traveling around; location was pretty good (making a triangle between Old Town and Wenceslas Square). Theater and some old churches nearby which held classical music performances. Decent cold breakfast available but after a couple of days, got a bit dull so didn't bother waking up for it. The location is close to the metro, so there were lots of different trams that went by taking you to all parts of the city. Free internet (broadband) was good.
Apartment was much more spacious than your average hotel room. That, together with the kitchen, made Atlante a great choice for my stay.
If you've never been to Prague before, don't be put off by the graffiti in the area surrounding the apartments. There's actually graffiti EVERYWHERE in Prague. Neighborhood felt safe day or night.
Tips: (1) With most of the main sights within 20 minutes of each other, Prague is very walkable. I took advantage of Sandeman’s free walking tours for an excellent orientation of the main neighborhoods. I would thoroughly recommend doing one of these on arrival to better decide which areas deserve more time on your own. (2) Cesky Krumlov is relatively easy to do on your own via bus/train and maybe a taxi. It does make for a long day, though, as it’s about 2.5 to 3 hours from Prague. I went with a tour company and for a little over USD 100 (book online for 10% off), had everything covered, including a great meal in an atmospheric medieval pub and entrance to the excellent Castle with a separate guided tour inside. I felt it represented decent value for not having to worry about logistics. During winter, though, the magnificent castle is closed, so be aware. (3) Prague has an excellent metro and an even better tram system (runs all day / night and was 100% on time). You can buy individual tickets or passes for 1 or more days. Most ticket locations are unmanned, so make sure you have change on you at all times, as ticket machines do not accept bills. (Also, need change for bathrooms, even the ones in McDonald's).
