Overview

About the property

Right in the heart of the old town. Very historic and romantic.

This is our 9th year short-term renting this apt. It is by far our most popular and favourite apt. You can rely on solid, professional and courteous treatment.

We have an assortment of fine properties. To see all of them just click on Owner Info and than at the bottom- All My Rental Listings

This 4 room apt. is located just 3 blocks from the heart of Prague’s historic center -- old town square. Private and quiet, it fronts on a garden and adjacent arcade and loggia. It is next to the small and silent, misty winding streets of the old town, as well as blocks away from the most popular nightspots and many of the city’s best restaurants.

The apartment is fully renovated and fully furnished. One bedroom has a king-sized bed, and the master bedroom has a super-king-sized bed which separates to 2 single beds, plus a living room (with sofa bed) and a kitchen. The living room and master bedroom look to the garden, where it is also possible to sit and relax or eat. A free parking lot is located around the corner from the apartment.The metro is a 5 min. walk. The area is very safe.

The house dates back to gothic times, and has historic details and a magnificent hand-carved late renaissance balustrade in the entry of the building. The city's most popular and visited places -- the Charle's bridge, old town square, the great Parizska street, and Wencelslaus square (shopping district) are all minutes away by foot.

The apt. comfortably sleeps up to 2 couples, and there are also numerous sofa beds for children or guests.

About Robin Moorman

Robin Moorman is from the USA and lives in Prague. He was trained in architecture and design at Cornell, the University of California (Santa Cruz and Berkeley), and in Venice, Italy. He loves historic architecture and its restoration.

Robin Moorman purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Robin Moorman chose Prague 1

I chose to buy a vacation rental in this location because of the profound historical value and fantastic location - blocks away from the old town square, which is the heart of the old town, that means it's located within of the best restaurants and most popular 'hotspots'-- but the house is located on quiet, winding, ancient street.

What makes this apartment unique

You are in the very heart of the historic old town, so all of the great sites are just beyond your doorstep.

Great location in Old Town for a family of 6 on first trip to Prague

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Czech Republic, so we didn't know what to expect. The location of the flat was perfect in Old Town, directly across from an Irish pub, ironically, so that was grand! Robin was incredibly accommodating for our family of 6 (4 children ages 7-11), especially since we rented a car for day trips around Czech and needed a secure place to park it. We didn't stay much in the flat, spending most of our days hoofing it around Prague or exploring other parts of Czech, but it was perfect place to park young, weary heads at the end of a long day. Would definitely return to the property in future trips. Many thanks, Robin!

First Prague Trip

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has 4 very important advantages - 1) location, location, location - only a very short 2 block walk to Old Towne Square and other important points of interest in Prague 2) many good restaurants and grocery stores are just a few feet away from the apartment 3) fantastic property owner - just a outstanding host who is easy to reach and willing to make sure you have a great stay in his apartment and 4) a very comfortable spacious secure apartment. We have only one warning! We rented a car in Budapest and drove up to Prague. We did not realize the parking situation would be such a difficult task in Prague. The property owner work hard to provide parking options for us. Thank you Robin (property owner) for everything!!! We will be return!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the high praise Wayne! You were a gentleman and a pleasure to work with too. It is true indeed those are great advantages (that's why we bought this apt. for short-term letting :) Otherwise, we were inspired by the parking situation with you to add another benefit for our guests. We now have a laminated map and instructions in the apt., along with a chip to automatically open the gate, for the parking at our other apts., which our Abbots guests can use any time. That makes things much easier. You paved the way! Also, luckily the road works which make things more difficult for the free parking lot around the corner are almost done, so there is always that option too. Hope to see you again Wayne! Happy Trails! Robin & team

Fantastic apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! Spent 5 nights there with our 10 and 12 year old boys and couldn't have been happier. The wood fire was a bonus which we all enjoyed after a long day of walking in cold weather. The apartment is so convenient to everything we didn't need to use any public transport as we could walk everywhere for the days we spent in Prague. (We did a couple of day trips out to Cesky Krumlov and Terezin by bus). The owners were easy to communicate with and organised our airport pick up and drop off - everything ran so smoothly. We would definitely recommend Abbot's to anyone spending time in Prague.

Location was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week long stay at this lovely apartment...we hated to leave. The location is perfect, minutes from Old Town Square, surrounded by restaurants, attractions and stores...everything is literally outside the door, but just far enough away from the craziness of Old Town Square. Booking was a breeze, we were always in contact, they arranged transportation to and from the airport. This was the first time i had booked on VRBO and was a little nervous about not being disappointed with our choice and we definitely were not. The apartment was spacious, clean...it has old, antique furniture, which is part of the charm, that's exactly what we wanted. They provided a binder with lots of info, WIFI, TV (didn't even turn it on so don't know if it works). The only thing was that you needed to unlock 3 different locks to actually get in, maybe the only challenge we had. It is on the main floor, so easy access with lugging suitcases. There are renovations currently going on in this building and looks like a work in progress but once inside the apartment, its fine. We basically slept there, we were out enjoying this amazing city the entire time. Thanks to Diana who was very helpful and made me feel at ease prior to my trip answering all my questions. I would definitely book this place again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Mary! You were a wonderful host too. About the locks there's nothing we can do I'm afraid, as that is pre-determined by our condominium. At least the one chip opens the 1st two doors, and it's super safe of course. I'm happy to say the renovation on the upper floor has finished; we're all happy about that. Thanks so much for staying with us! Robin

Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Robin and Peter arranged our transportation to and from the train station. We were met at the apartment which is charming and cozy. There is a wonderful book with sightseeing and restaurant recommendations and directions. The apartment is very well equipped and we even enjoyed a fire in the fireplace! It is also well located, a very short walk to the Old Town Square. After a long day of sightseeing it was a treat to relax and soak in the tub in the beautifully renovated bathroom. On our last day, our train didn't leave until 5:00 so we wanted to enjoy the day, but didn't know what to do with our luggage. Robin and Peter were incredibly accommodating, and Robin came to the apartment to open the garage for us so we could store our luggage for the day. These two gentlemen provided top notch service and hospitality!
