About the property

Located in the former Telegraph Office, to enjoy whole Prague at your doorstep

NO RESERVATION FEES AS DISPLAYED: YOU CAN PAY BY BANK TRANSFER OR PAYPAL. What are your best memories from holidays years ago? It would be certainly moments of authenticity, real life in the streets, looks behind the curtain of tourist industry. And there are not many cities where this is more important than in Prague, with its Central European genius loci. Choosing well the neighbourhood to stay to avoid artificial tourist places and the central districts where no real people live any more, and staying close though to the famous monuments, meeting an old lady walking her dog and kids running from school, buying food in a normal grocery store and walking safely around, having a beer outside under lime trees or in a bar next door, eating a good Czech meal in a local resturant or rather something international or haute cuisine as you wish... All this is super important to enjoy your stay in Prague and remember it for life. The Castle/Břevnov district, surrounded by parks, with its medieval monasteries, is then a perfect destination and the only part of Prague 1 that still has authentic neighbourhood life. To go downtown, take one of the many paths across the green Castle gardens, or go straight through the Royal Castle itself, with thousand year old monuments including the famous Cathedral. If tired on your way back, choose between the tram (24 hours a day) and the funicular that will take you from across the National Theater directly to your place, showing you magnificient panoramas. Enjoy many restaurants, shops and services in Břevnov, or in hot summer days, a well known open air swimming pool nearby. The studio is located in a modernist style building from 1930s, that used to be the Castle telegraph office. It is renovated and fully equiped to accommodate your needs during the holidays, including all kitchen appliances and ustensils, and high speed unlimited internet. It is sufficiently heated in winter, very light and with no street noise, with a big window into the backyard. Thanks to its mezzanine bed with a super comfortable large matress and enough space under the high ceiling, you have enough surface in the apartment. Finally, you should be attentive to the first hours in the new town that can be a source of surprises: we will arrange to meet you at any time of the day whatever your travel timetable is. Either ourselves or our colleague will welcome you and show you around. A final cleaning and towels/beddings are also included in the rental so that you can enjoy Prague without any worries. If you are arriving by plane or by train, our info sheet much appreciated by other guests will not only show a quick and simple itinerary to avoid you a long journey in taxi, but also good places around and some useful tips for your stay, like currency exchange. And if you're coming by car, you have your private place in the locked courtyard.

About Jakub Kodym

We are Jakub and Markéta, we come from Prague and currently live in Luxembourg. We have decided in 2005 to rent out our studios in Central Prague to allow travellers discover Prague on their own. This experience of over ten years helps us offer top services to meet all expectations and requirements of our guests, as shown by their feedback on the site. Our colleague Monika who lives in the neighbourhood helps us when we are abroad, and she's a real help and contact if there is any issue during the stay.

Jakub Kodym purchased this studio in 2014

Why Jakub Kodym chose Prague 6 - Dejvice

Spend your time in Prague in a calm neighbourhood that is nevertheless close to the center. Authentic city district with its stores, bakeries, pubs, restaurants... as well as real people who say hello to each other when walking their dogs in the morning. Avoid the 'disneyland' of the historical center, yet live just at the doorstep of the famous Prague Castle :-)

Happy travelers

  • 4 of 5

Loved this functional apartment in Prague. Apartment is clean and as promised in the pictures. Three adults had enough room for a short stay. Location is excellent for seeing the castle area and the Little Quarter. Public transportation is very close, little grocery stores nearby. We would have liked working Wi-fi and make sure you have information on when to expect hot water.

Very easy check in and out. Owner very helpful with an information sheet to help with transit and accessing services in the area.

We would definitely use this property again.

Logement à recommander

  • 5 of 5

Appartement studio fonctionnel, propre et bien placé. A dix minutes du château de Prague, l'accès à la ville est très agréable avec des vues superbes sur Prague.

L'accès aussi se fait aisément par le tramway dont la station la plus proche est à 5 mn à pieds. Des commerces au alentours

Nettes kleines Appartment

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr schöne kleine Unterkunft, die wirklich empfehlenswert ist. In der Küche findet sich alles was für einen Kurzaufenthalt benötigt wird. Das Appartment war sauber und zweckmäßig eingerichtet.

Das Stadtzentrum ist fußläufig erreichbar, aber auch sehr einfach mit der Straßenbahn.

très satisfaisant

  • 5 of 5

Appartement impeccable et suffisant pour deux personnes.Très proches du château, il est parfaitement possible pour des personnes aimant la marche de visiter Prague à pied. Néanmoins l'accès à la mezzanine est compliqué pour des personnes d'un certain âge. La description de la location est conforme à la réalité, je recommande cette location aux personnes qui aiment le calme.

City center accessible by tram (day&night) with its stop 200 meters from the apartment, as well as by walking through the Castle or via the Petrín hill, with its 60-meter "Eiffel tower", its gardens and orchards and the funicular connection to the center. Airport and railway/coach stations easily accessible by public transport, with just one change.

Grocery stores nearby, many restaurants, pubs and bars in the neighbourhood and in the Castle. A document with tips and hints, preventing bad surprises and recommending good places to eat&drink Czech, is very much appreciated by the tenants.
