Overview

Photos and Description of this Old Town holiday apartment

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 - Stare Mesto

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!

Excellent apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is everything it says on the web site.It is in a quiet and perfect location for your stay in Prague. Great restaurants close by as well as many small grocery stores which stay open late.

Maia was very helpful with information beforehand and checked if everything was ok while we were there.

We would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again if we visit Prague in the future.

Thanks Maia

Hastalka 11 is ideal! It does not get any better.

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal for visiting all of Prague's major tourist attractions. Additionally, less than 1 block away is a well furnished neighborhood grocery just across the street from a wonderful butcher shop. 2 blocks away is an excellent, friendly (and busy) bakery shop.

The owner's suggestions for touring, dining, and shopping were spot on and most appreciated.

The condo itself lives up to everything in the description. Very nicely furnished, well equipped kitchen, excellent internet access.

Although my wife and I preferred walking to all of the attractions, there is a bus stop at the condo building's front door that is a gateway to all of the public transportation.

David, the property manager, was most cordial and very helpful in introducing us to the nuances of visiting Prague.

To put this review in perspective, my wife and I Have stayed in approximately 15 VRBOs over the last five years while visiting England, Ireland, Scotland, France, and Italy. Hastalka 11 ranks right at the top.

Spectacular stay - wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lot of experience with renting apartments around the world and this was one of our best experiences. We celebrated my 60th birthday and our 36th wedding anniversary here for two weeks. The apartment was spacious, clean, nicely decorated and appointed ( not like a corporate rental with terrible furniture and art). The cooking equipment was excellent; we did quite a bit of cooking. The bed was comfy and large, the air conditioning in the living room and the bedroom was a huge plus. It was moderately hot when we were in Prague. Washer dryer was great and elevator invaluable. I really have nothing to complain about.

But here is the BEST thing. The owner is fantastic and a great communicator. She sent me an itinerary of what she did on a recent trip with her sister to Prague and everything on the list was GREAT. She was a significant part of our enjoyment of renting this property. This is her home in Prague and the experience was thus wonderful and authentic. I always advise only renting from actual owners who use the apartment themselves. The quality that way is usually wonderful.

Also the neighborhood is ideal. Very close to the square but several blocks away so there are no crowds, no touristy places, no noise and a real collection of neighborhood stores, eateries and night spots. After spending two weeks in Prague, we were convinced that this is the exact location to stay. The French bistro across the street and the Irish Pub around the corner were superb.

We did use her local manager for our ride from the airport to the apartment and he was great and the cost for the ride was completely fair and trustworthy.

This was a completely satisfying and memorable rental. I recommend it without any hesitation. Thanks Maia!!!!!

Perfect start to our Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here at the start of our European adventure. Maia was so helpful before the trip. David provided excellent service both driving and with the apartment. The apartment itself was fantastic and lacked for nothing. We so enjoyed exploring Prague from our home base. If we make it back we would love to stay here again!!

fabulous apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with the apartment and neighborhood. The apartment was clean and very comfortable, with great instructions for using the TV, DVD and internet. The location was fantastic, so close to many sights and places to visit, but on a lovely and quiet side street. The apartment was huge and the rooms very comfortable to return to after a day of sightseeing. In particular, the kitchen and bathroom were both fantastic.

Maia sent a list of places to see and a great itinerary, along with recommendations for local restaurants, all of which were very helpful for our first visit to Prague. We would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a superior apartment in Prague.

Like Sutton Place in Prague!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this gorgeous apartment in Prague and we cannot recommend it more highly. Prague is a fantastic walking city and you don't have to go far within Praha 1 to get to the old town square and the Charles bridge. But why not stay a couple of blocks away from the best restaurants and shops instead?

The apartment has a king size bed with a ton of storage space. Having the one and a half bathrooms is also great when you have jet lag. The kitchen is fantastic and has all the tools you need to enjoy your vacation.

The laundry is also great. We did a couple of loads of laundry and everything worked fantastic.

The master bath is also great. The water pressure was excellent and the bathroom is bigger than some new York apartments.

The owner, Maia, organized for our pick up and drop off and that was all seamless. It was great to be able to check in to your apartment literally from the airport and check out on the way back to the airport.
