AIR CONDITIONED LUXURY PENTHOUSE NEAR EMBASSIES AND CASTLE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Mala Strana - Hradcany - House of the Red Cross

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom and additional 2nd toilet; sleeps 4 -6

The flat is in Prague 1 - Mala Strana, the best part of Prague, up near the Castle and close to many embassies. Essentially everything you are likely to want to see is within walking distance. We are very close to the castle, but the river is also nearby and you can rent rowing boats. In addition to the architecture, we are also close to the hillside parks behind the German and US embassies, where you can walk everywhere and get great views. The building itself is a listed monument and dates back to 1541. It was beautifully restored to a high standard by an Italian restoration company two years ago. Free wireless broadband.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you very much for the use of your apartment in Prague. We had a great holiday. The apartment is in a superb location for exploring the centre of Prague. We were very happy there and want to go back again soon!

I will definitely be recommending your place to my friends.



Thank you,

Rose

Comments from Owner Guestbook

Anna - Our Prague stay was wonderful, thanks in no small part to your wonderful flat. The location was sterling -- quick access to everything. Possibly the best place we stayed in Europe (if you don't count the first class lounge at the Paris airport!). Thank you for letting us stay at your place. You can be assured we'll be back and be sending our friends your way.
All the best, Daniel Arnall

Beautiful apartment in superb location. Perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful spacious apartment. Thank you! It is well furnished, has excellent beds, a modern kitchen that is fully equipped and everything was really nice, clean and worked well. The bathroom is clean and bright with a long Jacuzzi bath and also a good separate shower. It was also useful to have the additional second toilet. The apartment is on its own landing and so is very quiet and private. The owner has a manager who owns a local restaurant (which was nice and friendly!) and he was very quick and responsive to any questions and concerns. It was good to have the collection of tourist books on the shelf. The apartment somehow feels like a world of its own with no cars! It opens into its own secluded courtyard and is tucked away very close to Prague castle, but is still peaceful and quiet. Charles Bridge was also just a few minutes away on foot. It was really easy to arrive using the Metro and tram and we easily found several excellent restaurants within a couple of minutes walking distance. Food shopping locally was also pretty easy and there were a very nice delicatessen, fruit shop and bakery close by. The whole area feels peaceful and safe as it is surrounded by embassies and the apartment itself looks out over the US Embassy gardens. It’s just a perfect base for exploring Prague on foot as we could always come back easily any time we felt like it. A couple of people have mentioned the stairs. We (in our 60s) actually didn’t have a problem with these and they are not long. The first lot are normal, wide stairs (about 12) and the second flight is just a bit narrower, but we thought it added to the authentic atmosphere which was somehow both modern and historic. We will definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and hope very much to come back!

Great location, but some concerns

  • 3 out of 5
We stayed at the apartment for 5 nights. The location is excellent, in a safe area near the embassies, close to the castle quarter and Charles Bridge and with easy access to the Old Town. We found several excellent restaurants within walking distance, and away from the tourist crowds. The apartment is well-appointed. We had some concerns. We had difficulty gaining access on arrival, but that may have been a miscommunication and the manager was quite apologetic. The apartment requires a thorough cleaning - the floors were dirty (especially the carpet in the living area which should be discarded); there was some mould in the bathroom; the small bathroom and the kitchen cupboard interiors also need a good cleaning. The towels provided were threadbare. As others have mentioned, the spiral staircase leading to the apartment is very steep, with narrow steps, and could certainly be of concern to anyone with motility concerns. Finally, the listing says there is parking. When we inquired pre-booking, we were told there was parking available at near-by St Nicholas Church. What wasn't mentioned was that the parking there costs 1008 Czech kroners (~$55 cdn) per day. This extra cost may have affected our choice of accommodation.

Delightful apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time staying in this flat in Prague. The accommodations were comfortable and pleasant; the flat is so well appointed and homey. The beds were excellent, the kitchen has all you need for full meal preparation, a washer, which reduced the amount of clothing we had to bring for a ten day stay, a full bath with Jacuzzi and an additional toilet which was very nice because there were five of us sharing the flat for part of the time. Everything was clean and worked just fine and we really appreciated the little library of guidebooks even though we'd brought a few of our own. And it was just perfect (essential I guess for finding information) to have Internet access. The owner has a local manager and is also very responsive to any questions or concerns.

In addition, the flat is located in the most convenient area imaginable for a visit to Prague. The Prague Castle is a short and interesting walk in one direction and the Charles Bridge a short walk the other way. The neighborhood has an excellent produce market, a deli, grocery stores, a butcher. This was a perfect home base from which we explored the city on foot for more than a week. We are hoping to return in spring or summer.

The only caution is that the flat is two flights up a very narrow, and for the last flight, extremely steep, spiral staircase. The flight is well lit and has an excellent handrail, but it is very steep and narrow. It would be hard negotiate the staircase if you are not reasonably fit.

Charming and quiet

  • 5 out of 5
Perfect for our family of four. Location is the best feature of this place. Walk up a narrow cobblestone street into your quiet getaway. The apartment is huge and well appointed. We loved it! (as mentioned in other reviews, the stairs are quite steep... but this just added to the cool ambience of the place for us)

Great weekend getawy

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed at this apartment for a long weekend in February. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to families looking for more space than what you'd normally have in a hotel room. The location is very good - walking distance to many restaurants, 5-10 minutes to the Charles Bridge, and 2-3 minutes to a small grocery store. We'll be recommending it to our friends! Thanks, Anna!

Our Prague self-catering apartment for vacation rental. The 'House of the Red Cross' lies in a secluded courtyard off Nerudová Street, below Prague Castle. It is just behind the Lichtenstein Palace in the heart of the city's world-famous Malá Strana (Lesser Town) Prague 1 district and has very easy access on foot (400-800m) to the nearby Castle, Charles Bridge, Cathedrals and embassies. The penthouse is on the 2nd floor and forms the roof-space in a building classified as one of the most important renaissance houses in Prague, dating to at least 1541.
