Ask us anything, we’ll answer. Second hand furniture, self made decoration, pictures with explanations, plants.

As we were staying at a quiet time, we were delighted to get a room upgrade. Our large room was warm and comfortable despite the freezing temperatures outside. The delicious continental breakfast was great. Even when we had an early departure, the staff arranged for breakfast

Very nice first experience in Prague, Gunther is lovely, helping at maximum by giving all the non touristic tips you need to enjoy the quiet and charming Czech city. I particularly enjoyed the second hand decoration and the room is very all in one: we had a microwave, forks and

Ciao Marco, Parcheggiare nei nostri dintorni e libero, la sicurezza e come a Vienna o a Monaco, cio'e relativamente bene. Normalmente io tento di riservare un parcheggio nella nostra strada quando so che gli ospiti arrivono in macchina, e a che ora. Abitualmente non e un problema. Quando pensate visitare Praga? Saluti Guenther

Hi Tim, It's nothing special. What I meant is that if I know the approximate arrival time I try to keep a spot free in the street where we are. In summer this is relatively easy, after school starts in September it's more difficult, but so far everybody who came here by car had a spot in the vicinity. I hope this helped? Kind regards Guenther

Hallo Birgit, Ich nehme an, ich darf auf deutsch antworten? Danke für die Anfrage. In unserer Umgebung ist das Parken frei. Ich würde im Fall Ihrer Anreise per Auto um die ungefähre Ankunftszeit bitten bzw. um eine sms ca. eine Stunde vor Ankunft, da ich dann versuchen würde, in der Nähe einen Parkplatz frei zu halten. Alternative: Per Bus mit Student Agency, einfache Fahrt ab ca. €15, eigener Busbegleiter, online-Buchung samt Sitzplatz, kostenloses Storno, Kopfhörer, Bildschirm, Gratiskaffee. Ich fahre fast regelmässig mit der Agency nach Wien und bin sehr zufrieden. Vom Busbahnhof gibts eine direkte Busverbindung zu uns, ca. 15 Min. Und ein vegetarisches Frühstück gibts bei uns auch :-) Würde mich freuen, Sie bei uns begrüssen zu dürfen! Liebe Grüsse Günther

"Best to ask for what type of room you would like."
"Accessibility for local commute."
"Quite, comfortable and all facilities."
