Most Romantic - Great reviews
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Great comfort and character with NO add on fees or charges! Magic views, major attractions and wonderful restaurants on your door step. Gaslit and winding streets lead you to the house, built in 1570. From the pretty cobbled square, through the ancient door, up three flights of steps (Please Note - no lift) , you enter the apartment - 70m2 (754 sq ft) Parquet floors, original beamed ceilings and fairy tale views of Karlov Most (Charles Bridge), the City Spires and the River Vltava all contribute to the feeling of history and romance.
The comfortable and tasteful furnishings, sympathetic restoration and cross ventilation, the well equipped modernized kitchen and bathroom all combine to guarantee comfort. Moreover, the superb location and great views makes this one of the most memorable places to stay in this magical city.

|Further details outdoors|
The house is but a few steps away from Prague's most treasured landmark; Karlov Most (Charles Bridge) & Kampa Park. Towering above on the hill is Prague Castle. Close by are some of the City's most chic & best restaurants - several with sublime terraces overlooking the River. There are also many cafes and wine bars, concert halls & jazz clubs - just a stroll away. Easy & delightful walking distance to most of Prague's other main attractions, including the Old Town Square reached by a short walk into the Old Town across the bridge and along the Embankment.
Despite the wonderfully central location, the apartment benefits from being in a quiet and peaceful & charming street.

The Bohemia region
Prague is a great place to visit year round. Prague is the centre of Central Bohemia, which is in Central Europe. Moderate climate - with lovely seasonal changes.
Prague boasts a wealth of architectural gems. The major sites of interest include: Prague Castle with St Vitus Cathedral, Petrin Hills with its own funicular, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and many wonderful churches.
The apartment is located in a very pretty cobbled street in the area of Mala Strana. Mala Strana is the more sophisticated, more peaceful, calm and green side of the river providing a welcome escape from the more touristy hubbub & bustle of the Old Town. Mala Strana also has so many of its own delights in the narrow cobbled streets surrounding the apartment and up to the Castle and Petrin Hills.
Mala Strana is the the oldest and most sophisticated quarter of Prague. Mala Strana gained town status in 1257. The Baroque churches and palaces which give the area its charm date from the 17th & 18th centuries.

"A charming well appointed apartment in an excellent location."
The apartment is in an excellent location overlooking the Charles Bridge. Going to bed at night was very pleasant looking over the gas lit Charles Bridge. It is approx. 600 years old and is spacious and has a small laundry and a well appointed kitchen which is most helpful when travelling. The instructions for the apartment are detailed and includes very helpful assistance with tourist attractions and recommendations for restaurants. The owner met us at the apartment and kindly arranged for transport to and from the apartment, provided a Christmas tree for our arrival and some treats which were greatly appreciated. It should be noted that there are three flights of stairs to gain access to the apartment.

"Five perfect days in Prague"
Dear Clare and Tony,
Thank you very much for making our stay in Prague SO wonderful! The location of your flat was ideal for our Prague exploration as it is the epicenter of Prague's oldest areas. Additionally, the backdrop of the Charles Bridge from your flat couldn't be more perfect! We walked everywhere - all through Malá Strana, to Hradčany and Prague Castle, to Staré Mesto and to Josefov, exploring streets, shops, churches and admiring architecture at our leisure. We even watched the peacocks roost in the 13th c. Vojan Park across the street from your apartment!
However the little touches, that we're finding so many self-catering apartments lack, really made our stay complete. We especially appreciated your helpful recommendations for good places to eat; your suggestions of things to do, which are not necessarily in guide books; having a library of books available; having games and many DVDs available; having paper towels, napkins and other essentials on hand; and having a festive Christmas tree set up and decorated. :)
We also truly appreciated having thorough instructions upon our arrival regarding how to properly use/set the various fixtures...stove, locks, washer/dryer, etc.
Thanks again for making this trip such a memorable one for my daughter and me!
Happy New Year!
All the best,
Chary and Robin

"The Perfect Place to Stay in Prague"
This apartment is spacious, modern, and comfortable. It has two bedrooms, a full bath, washer and dryer, a full kitchen, a dining room/office, a good-sized living room with flat screen TV. The apartment is very nicely decorated. Clare meets you with a smile, describes everything in the apartment, and provides loads of information about places to eat and visit. Even before we got there, she was happy to email back and forth to take care of arrangements including a taxi to the airport. She arrived at the appointed time as we were leaving to make sure that the taxi arrived and that we were safely off to the airport.
The apartment itself is in the wonderful, old Mala Strana district, with cobble-stoned sidewalks and streets. Great restaurants are within a few minutes from your door. The location is outstanding. Open the window in the back and you look directly on the Charles Bridge and the river. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go; but, in addition, public transportation is very close by. Especially remarkable is how quiet the apartment is. The master bedroom is in the back, and we were able to sleep as late as we wished without noise. We would stay there again without doubt and recommend it highly to friends. Although it was not a problem for us, people who book this apartment should know that it has no elevator (it's a 16th century building) and is on the third floor.

"Terrific location, good value, many stairs"
Beautifully located apartment in Mala Strana with great views, both river and street side. Good kitchen and bathroom with washer and dryer. Cubby sized bedrooms-just fit one queen sized bed in each;… More
It's always gratifying to read such wonderfully positive comments as from our previous reviewers.
Just to clarify on a few points:
• The bedrooms are quite small but they do have more than a queen sized bed in each!
• The heavy velvet drapes proved more stylish and appropriate when I renovated this 16th century apartment. The layout of the apartment indeed offers good privacy to both parties. Each bedroom adjoins another room – the dining room and the living room respectively. Between the doors of those 2 rooms is a central hallway.
• TV – Apologies - there must have been a mistaken re-tuning during this visit. There are, in fact, approximately 20 English language channels, including BBC News, Sky News, CNN, HBO 2, & MGM.
• Payment: Cost is fixed in Euro and I do take payment in Euro cash, on arrival. However, as shown on the site – I can accept the equivalent in USD or GBP Sterling cash, by prior request. This can prove useful for guests coming directly from the US & UK.
