Overview

About the property

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!

OUTSTANDING APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

I ditto all of the great reviews prior to this one. I can't say enough great things about this apartment. The gourmet kitchen had everything you could possibly need. It had high end appliances. Everything was top notch in this apartment. It had a washer & dryer and the Wi Fi was fast. There were A/C units in the bedroom & living area. It was in a great location, a couple of blocks from the Old Town square. David picked us up at the airport. Maia was very responsive with any questions I had & sent me a list of things to see with directions & addresses, where to find different types of stores (i.e. supermarkets, butcher shop, cheese shop, etc.). I would definitely stay here again & would recommend it to anyone going to Prague. Thank you Maia & David.

Exquisite apartment in a lovely part of the city!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Prague. The apartment itself, is very spacious, elegant but comfortable in a very quiet building. It has everything one would ever need, a well stocked kitchen as well as a large full bath and half bath. The immediate area is wonderful with lots of restaurant and cafe options. David met us at the train station which made for an easy transition and I would recommend taking that option. All in all, the best transaction I've experienced with a vacation rental!

Perfect Location; Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very large and well appointed. All the appliances are top of the line German makes. The booking process is very easy, and the apartment has many (!) guidebooks and maps. It's a five minute walk to the Old Town Square, and five minutes to a tram stop from which you can connect to anywhere. The metro is less than 10 minutes away. Within 200 meters are twenty-plus restaurants, including one of Pragues three Michelin starred restaurants, two other truly noteworthy places, and Pragues most hopping cafe/beer hall. It's another minute to the ultimate meat restaurant and butcher shop with lines out the door for all of the sixteen hours they are open daily. St Agnes cloister is around the corner; it's a must see. The apartment is totally quiet.

I'm sure there are less expensive alternatives, but this apartment is a five star accommodation at a very fair price. If you can stay here, jump at the chance and you will be delighted as we were

Beautiful apartment in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Maia's apartment is absolutely lovely and extremely comfortable! The pictures on the website are accurate and the apartment is both spacious and warm, as well as equipped with all of the comforts of home. As it was rather warm during our stay, the A/C worked well and was fully appreciated! The bed was very comfortable (this and the a/c are a big deal for us...) and there was abundant closet and storage space in the bedroom.

Prior to our trip, Maia provided us with an extensive list of recommended grocery stores, bakeries, etc., closeby, which was very helpful and it wasn't long before we fully realized how well situated the apartment is. Literally just a few blocks north of the Old Town Square and just a few east of the Vltava River & Charles Bridge, I would say this quiet street is probably the best location in which to stay in Prague.

We loved it and plan to stay again on our next visit!

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for about a week. We fell in love with the city, and this flats location. It was decorated so cute, and the owner was magnificent.

The flat was within walking distance from great food and restaurants, museums, the astrology click, Charles bridge---everything!

We loved it so much we are going to start looking for our own place in Prague! We will definitely be back to stay here while we search!

The owner Maia even arranged transport from the airport from a very lovely fellow named David.

All in all, we highly recommend this place! Definitely worth booking!
