Overview

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, 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. All the comforts of home, washer-dryer, dishwasher, fully appointed gourmet kitchen, big, beautiful bathroom, fast Wi-Fi... There is no 'short-term-stay' feeling to our place, (no Ikea furniture!), 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.

American-owned. Our guests can reach us by email or phone in Los Angeles, with questions about the property, neighborhood, or for insight or suggestions while planning your holiday. We email our guests a list of our personal favorite sights, walks and restaurants, both on the beaten path, and off. Our local property manager is a UK native who has lived in Prague for 20 years, and additionally offers dependable airport/ train station transfers, and is your personal connection in this magical city.

In 2012, 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 have had nothing but great experiences with our rentals since 2010, and look forward to even more thrilled responses from our guests!

Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Owner chose Prague 1

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!

So much better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to a recommendation from a friend in the Prague area, we decided to look for an apartment for the week instead of staying in a hotel. That was the first good decision. The second was to choose this property. It is fabulously located in the Old Town and walking distance to both high-end and lower end shops, a slew of restaurants, the Vltana River and all the best tourist attractions; we didn't use a car all week. At the same time, the apartment building was incredibly quiet and we couldn't hear any noise from our bedroom, which overlooks a courtyard. The apartment is so well-stocked that we had everything we needed (of course, purchase your own paper supplies, food and drink). Maia gave us a 3-page list of grocery stores, restaurants, tourist information, etc. that I utilized throughout our stay. The apartment has high ceilings, large interior doors and a "European" feel, which we loved. The high-end bathroom, changing area and kitchen were added bonuses, and the bed was very comfortable. Due to an unforeseen situation of painters in the courtyard, we received a 20% discount, which we hadn't even asked for. Also, the property manager (who is from England) for a small sum picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the apartment. He shared lots of tips and good advice. We will definitely stay there again if we go back to this area.

Great place perfect location, awesome host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled to Prague for the first time, and found this apartment in our search; and fortunately it was available. Many times pictures over promise, this was not the case here. The place is huge, with a full bathroom that was bigger than an entire apartment that we stayed at in Paris. It's a quick walk to many of the sites, and is just a couple blocks from public transit and the river.

Maia provided us with tons of information prior to our arrival including places to go eat and shop.

1 place to add to the list: the brothers k--awesome indian food about a 10 minute walk, and a welcomed change after enjoying traditional Czech food.

The kitchen is stocked as if she lives there full time, and is much larger than typical european kitchens with a dishwasher, full size fridge & freezer, prep area and nice range. There's a nice couch for relaxing, and a well stocked bookcase with many travel books on Prague. And the bed is quite comfortable.

We were even able to do a load of laundry before we left.

Maia was awesome with responses and communication. She has a property manager that even picked us up at the airport and showed us around for a few minutes.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Maia’s wonderful apartment over Christmas. This was our first visit to Prague and we had a fabulous time. You can book with confidence as Maia made the whole process so easy. She was very helpful and provided lots of information not just about the apartment but also about things to do in Prague.

Maia provided David as a contact for airport pick up. He provided us with some golden nuggets of information about our stay in Prague that we found very useful as well as providing such a great and reliable service.

The apartment more than lives up to its description and photos. Very close to the Old Town Square and surrounded by great places to eat and a mini market within a 100 yards. The apartment is very quiet, easy to access thanks to a lift and beautifully appointed. I will miss the Jacuzzi bath and large open dressing area. Really it was a home from home as everything you could need or want was there, even the little things. We wanted for nothing.

A magical apartment in such a wonderful city. Yes, we will return to Prague one day and would stay in Maia’s apartment again without question.
