Location great; hope you can handle the noise
Posted Aug 26, 2016
The apartment is located in the heart of all the activity in Prague 1 which is convenient to get to the main attractions in this area. All are within a 10 minute walk - Charles Bridge, castle, clock, city square, etc. Grocery store is a 5 minute walk, tons of restaurants and shops surround you. You are also in the center of the bar scene which stays loud and active until about 2-3am. This is great if you are looking for the nightlife, but bad if you are a family and want to get some sleep. The trick to noise reduction is to turn on the room a/c unit as it drowns out all the street noise with its loud humming sound. Apartment is spacious and old and the contents are limited. We were given one towel per person, one hand towel and told that was it and it would be changed every 3 days. It's manageable though. We are a family of 6 looking to eat in on occasion and found the kitchen to be rather limited in supplies. 3 plates, 2 bowls, a few misc items of silverware and cookware and a few mismatched glasses. We had one full size bed and two pull out futon type beds in the main room. The balcony was a nice bonus! Wi Fi is terrible (read non-existent) unless you are in a first floor apartment which we switched to; however, you can connect to one of the many bar wi fi's that surround you if you can get the password and on the first floor. Kristy, at the front desk, was extremely pleasant and helpful. She helped book our airport transport and navigate the city.
