Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Old Town - Hastalska
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)
This exquisite one-bedroom is one of the most beautiful and special apartments in the picturesque 'Old Town / Stare Mesto' center of Prague. Completely renovated four years ago, our 95 sq-meter (1,022 sq-ft) apartment was rebuilt with exclusive designer elegance in mind, mixing high-end, modern amenities with classic features to create a bright, luxurious living space.
Overlooking a tranquil cobblestone square in the Josevof quarter of Old Town, you will find yourself walking distance from all major historic and cultural attractions. Old Town Square and Prague's famous Astronomical Clock are only 3 blocks away. Walk through the winding streets of charming Old Town to reach the Charles Bridge, Wenceslas Square, Municipal House and the Power Gate, all within 10 minutes walk. Prague's historical Synagogues, and elegant Parizska shopping street, are within 5 minutes. Restaurants and cafes abound, as well as bakeries, specialty food stores, and large markets if you choose to cook at home. There is no 'short-term-stay' feeling to our place, and we are proud to share it with discerning guests - this is truly a magical apartment!
State of the art kitchen is fully equipped for preparation of gourmet meals, featuring high-end european appliances - Siemens convection oven, cooktop, garbage disposal, dishwasher, and built-in stainless steel microwave oven. Caesarstone countertops highlight beautiful Italian cabinetry by Scavolini.
Master bedroom overlooks a quiet courtyard and features a large open dressing area surrounded by built-in closets and drawers. Heavy curtains provide a dark bedroom for sleeping.
Luxurious master bathroom has double sinks, large jacuzzi tub, separate glass-enclosed shower, heated granite floors and heated towel bars.
All furniture was custom-built in Italy. New parquet floors. High ceilings, built-in and recessed lighting throughout on dimmers. Internal filtration system purifies and softens all water for drinking and bathing. Bosch washing machine and dryer in separate laundry room. Working elevator to apartment on fourth floor. The apartment is safe and quiet -- the church that faces the living room does not chime its bells. Softly and beautifully lit at night, this church gives our square a picturesque and peaceful ambiance.

After our very successful first season of rentals in 2011, our beautiful apartment has been back on the vacation rental market as of August 2012 after a 8-month hiatus, during which our building underwent a complete and meticulous historic renovation. The building itself is now as splendid as the interior of our apartment, freshly brought back to it's original colors and condition, with a beautifully restored foyer, new elevator and restored facade. We had a great first rental season in 2011, and now look forward to even more thrilled responses from our guests!

Why Owner chose Old Town
When we saw this apartment, we fell in love! It is an exquisite gem, on what we think is the most tranquil and beautiful square in all of Prague. It is a dream destination, nestled in the heart of a charming, magical city whose historical architecture has remained intact. We never tire of wandering Prague's winding cobblestone streets, and exploring the countless museums, restaurants and cafes. Prague is a great city for music, both contemporary and classical. We walk to amazing concerts, stopping for ice cream, wine or cappucino on the way home. We are sure your stay will be as special and memorable as ours have always been.
Guestbook comments from the owner
After a 7 hour train trip with lovely scenery, we arrived in Prague and were so happy to walk into your beautiful flat...it felt warm and welcoming.
Jeff took us on a stroll of the area and then Tim and I had a great dinner nearby. We are so happy with our 'home' for the week...
What a treat to wake up in your beautiful flat...we slept incredibly well and have loved our first day here.
This is a fabulous week to be here...the Old Town Square has food stalls set up and children performing in dance recitals in native attire, the St Michael Monastery has concerts each night. We are going a "Best of Classic and Opera" program tonight. Absolutely lovely... wanted to let you know how happy we are to be here.
...please do put together some excerpts from our emails. We clearly loved your apartment and would highly recommend it. It absolutely enhanced our enjoyment of Prague...what a delight to come home to such comfort after a day of sightseeing.
Thanks again for sharing your wonderful home with us!
