|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
This lovely spacious apartment situated on the steps of Prague castle is just delightful. It has all the functionality that you might expect but with the added extra of some home comforts. Light floods the main socialising areas, and bedroom giving it a lovely airy feel. It´s in a great location and all of Prague is easily navigated from here.
Gently sloping from the Castle to the Vltava’s left bank, Malá Strana is one of Prague’s most desirable districts. Spend some time immersed in its baroque splendour and you’ll see why.
Its name may mean ‘Lesser Quarter’ but for many this is essential Prague. The baroque palaces and churches will make you swoon or just spend an afternoon pottering about the antiques shops and cafes. The castle is a short, uphill walk – pack a picnic and stop off at the romantic Pálffy Gardens on the way.
We really enjoyed our stay in Magdalen because Dean and staff were fantastic and this apartment was very clean and convenient. Unfortunately, the bar below us was very raucous and it was difficult to sleep some nights. Location away from Charles Bridge was great ... close but not in midst of tourist central. Bedroom was spacious and so was kitchen and bath, but second bedroom was the foyer of the apartment and not very private. If you don't mind noise at night and early morning deliveries, it would be a perfect place in Prague for a delightful walking tour vacation because it is close to castle, etc.
The best aspects involved Dean and Irina because they both were very helpful and accommodating and pleasant and kind. The worst was the Medieval bar below us that was very noisy and made sleeping some nights difficult. The second "bedroom" should not really be advertised as such, since it is a bed in the foyer and not very private (since there were 3 of us). We appreciated the close proximity to everything and yet the distance from the Charles Bridge tourists. Overall, we enjoyed the accommodations and efficient staff and cleanliness of bathroom and kitchen, etc
This apartment was advertised as air conditioned so it was quite a shock to arrive in 35 degree heat to find that it is not. At the time we arrived the apt manager was not available and would not be until the next day (so much for available anytime, as promised) and not even a fan could be provided. I emailed WaytoStay right away but the office was closed. We spent a very uncomfortable night. The next day the apt manager informed us that WaytoStay was placing all the blame on him for not checking the ad more carefully and we were eventually offered a 20% discount. WaytoStay offered another air conditioned apt after I refused to pay, however this apt was quite far from the current apt and we had already paid 90 euros to park our car close to the apt we were in. We decided to stay, had two fans given to us and eventually paid the balance minus 20%. What I find most frustrating is WaytoStay's lack of responsiblity in this matter. It does not help the customer to pass blame. I booked this apt through WaytoStay, not the apt manager and they should have been more accountable. Apparently the ad has now been corrected, so anybody wanting to book the apt will at least be aware to not expect air conditioning. Also the neighbourhood where the apt is is beautiful (although quite an uphill climb) and the staff at the apt were very friendly. One other note- this is not a two bedroom apt as advertised- it is a one bedroom with two single beds placed in what should have been a living room.
The location was great but there was street noise that made it hard to sleep with the windows open. Some of the kitchen fixtures like cups, glasses, plates & some basic kitchen gear ( like a coffee maker ) could definitely be improved. It would be helpful to know that you have your office at this location for checking in. Overall it was fine for our four person group.
The hosts were very welcoming and accommodated all of our requests. The location was convenient, below the Prague castle and minutes from the Charles bridge. Roomy bedrooms with lots of storage space. Enjoyed our stay. Jamie
