About the property

Completely renovated, fully equipped apartment on the 2nd floor of the historical Dietrichstein - Donin building at Loretanska 3, just next to the Prague Castle in the exclusive district of Hradcany (literally few steps to the Prague Castle Square). The size of the apartment is 48 m2 / 516 sq ft and it includes a spacious living room with queen size bed, separate kitchen and bathroom and can accommodate up to 4 adults. It has 3 very large windows, 2 facing Loretanska Street with wonderful views on the surrounding palaces and 1 facing the quiet courtyard. New wood parquet floors give extra warmth to the apartment. There is a leather sofa, coffee table and a large flat screen TV with satellite. The dining area with a modern glass table sits up to 6 people. An office table with a chair is an ideal place to set up your laptop, FREE Wi-Fi internet access is provided. Lighting is set up through a combination of spot lights, chandeliers and lamps to create a warm ambiance. The apartment temperature can be regulated by the thermostat in the living room or individually on each heating element. There are all the amenities for demanding guests, including wireless internet, heated towel bar, washer, dryer, microwave etc. Should you wish, you can sit on the courtyard gallery in front of the apartment door and enjoy the sun. Or, you can take a walk to the nearby Prague Castle Gardens, Strahovsky Monastery Gardens, or the Petrin Park – it is amazing how much green space is just within a short walk.

Enjoy the romantic atmosphere of the Prague Castle and its palaces that surround you - the Tuscany Palace, Martinic Palace, Schwarzenberg Palace (housing National Gallery), Archbishop's Palace etc. The Old Hradcany Town Hall is the adjacent building (see photos). Be just 2 buildings away from Hrzansky Palace where the Premier of the Czech Republic has his office and representative quarters. The Prague Castle Guard is just across the street. From the apartment window you can watch the guards marching to the Castle for the changing of the guards. Literally a few steps away at the edge of the Prague Castle, you have the most amazing view of the whole Prague... In the morning you can hear the Loreto’s bells with their wonderful melody....In the evening the quiet atmosphere with beautiful soft light of the old street lamps prompts you for a romantic walk. The Old Town is just a short 10 min tram ride or 15 min walk (take the Old Castle Steps and cross the Charles bridge). The Charles Bridge is about 10 minutes walk down from the Castle, the Lesser Town (Mala Strana) with St Nicholas cathedral just 5 minutes. There are many wonderful restaurants and cafes around, we will be happy to make recommendations.

About The Owner

Our family is from Prague and WE LOVE PRAGUE! We travel frequently, but we think that this is the BEST CITY in the WORLD! We would like to share this special place with you - it is truly in the most magical location! We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do!!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Hradčany

The location is magical.... the property is unique as there are only a few apartments right next to the Prague Castle. We first experienced the uniqueness of this location while visiting a friend living in this building. It cannot be described, it has to be experienced! The proximity of the Prague Castle, the surrounding palaces and historical buildings and the quiet romantic atmosphere create truly a magical experience.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is magical – especially in the morning and at night. In the morning, you can hear the beautiful sound of the Loreto bells... take a morning walk to soak up the atmosphere available only to you as there are no hotels in the immediate vicinity, no tourists around until later in the day... Take a few steps to the Prague Castle, to the lookout where you will see the roofs of the Lesser Town (Mala Strana), the Charles Bridge, the hundreds of Towers, the Old Town... Or you can go down the historic Town Hall Steps (Radnicke schody) leading to the picturesque Nerudova street with many restaurants, cafes, galleries and boutiques. In the evening have a romantic dinner at one of the great restaurants in the neighborhood, then walk in the soft light of the old street lamps back to the quiet Loretanska street and the apartment.

A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment because of its location, its proximity to the Mala Strana quarter and other sites of interest and its amenities. It turned out to be the perfect choice: the apartment was exactly as described and pictured, spacious, comfortable, clean and well-equipped to make you feel at home instantly and conveniently located to explore the city on foot. Booking and check in were a breeze and truly pleasant; Dana responded to our emails promptly and Radek was very kind and helpful in getting us settled and providing some useful tips. We wholeheartedly recommend the Loretanska apartment to anyone who is planning to visit Prague. Thank you again for helping make our stay a most enjoyable one!

Perfect location, wonderful accomodations.

  • 5 of 5

Located between Prague Castle and the Monastery with Charles Bridge just below we had fantastic views of the city. Nice places to eat close by. The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable for two people. Be sure to acquaint yourself with the tram #22 to bring you back up the hill when a day of touristing has you exhausted. The tram is also a nice way to sightsee. Dana provided lots of good information. Highly recommend this great apartment.

Perfect place to stay while visiting Prague

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment is perfect; it is very close to major sights and tram transportation. The apartment was completely immaculate, and had everything one might need. Communication was excellent, both before and during our stay.

We were delighted with our choice, and would wholeheartedly recommend it!

Great apt. in outstanding location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week. Exceptional location, just a 3 minute walk to Prague Castle. Areas outside the castle walls offer beautiful views out over the city. Tram station (tram#22) very nearby, yet a quiet, peaceful area. Small grocery store about a block away up the hill, slightly larger one 2 tram stops or a 15 min walk away. Well maintained apt. has comfortable bed, TV (be sure to ask for details about how to work it), basics for cooking, a microwave, refrig., plus a small load washer/dryer (tho took abt 3+ hrs to wash and dry a full load). Lots of helpful info provided re:nearby restaurants, how to use the tram, the beautiful nearby Loreto Church. ATM just a short walk up the hill. I would absolutely stay here again . The only negative, and it was minor, was that the coffee maker broke and was not replaced.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and giving us 5 stars! We are glad that you enjoyed the apartment and appreciated its great location and amenities. Regarding the time for washing and drying clothes, please note that the washer is a front loading machine and as such usually takes longer than a top loading washer. One can decide on the length of time for the cycle depending on the particular need and program it (it can be seen on the digital display). Please note that there are detailed instructions to the washer and dryer in the kitchen drawer. As for the coffee machine, Radek went over to check it and see if it can be repaired, however concluded that it needed to be replaced, which he did the next day, however it was already the day of your departure. It was broken during your stay; we never questioned anything and returned your security deposit in full. We always appreciate good feedback and will do a better job explaining the appliances at arrival next time. We hope that you will stay with us again!

Up on the hill and away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter (6 years old) and I stayed in this apartment for the weekend. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer. The heating system was easy to use (good for us as there were morning that were cold and afternoons that were warm!) The apartment is in a nice quiet area where crowds do not gather despite being so close to the square. The apartment also has everything needed to be accommodating enough to still be on vacation but yet at home. We would recommend this as a place to stay.
