“Nice modern apartment, but a bad area”
Reviewed 3 December 2008

Good Points
* We were lucky enough to be the first people to stay in the newly renovated flat on the bottom floor.
* Has a kitchen and microwave
* Supermarket is just down the road.
* Tram to the city is only 10mins and stops near the apartment.
* Modern decor

Bad Points
* Bad area - it is situated next to a strip club. We were surprised when we woke up each morning with our internal organs not missing.
* They will only accept cash - there are no credit card facilities
* BYO toiletries
* No safe

Reviewed 1 May 2008

We booked this hotel / apartment online. We had checked other reviews and travellers photos as well as through various internet sites to book the apartment for 2. In the description it said it would include bath, cooker, hairdryer and other necessities for a self catering apartment. We also viewed photos of these too.
HOWEVER, when we arrived we were shown a completely different apartment. There was no cooker - just a plug in hot plate. No other cooking device at all not even a toaster! There was also no bath and the bathroom was really tiny - with a washing machine in the middle of the floor?! No bath either or hairdryer as stated.
We were not happy and complained to the man who had let us in the apartment but he insisted this was the correct apartment and that the website was at fault and not them. We held out and his manager turned up who then showed us an apartment supposedly for 6 people but which was much better. Cooker, proper bathroom and a separate dining room to the bedroom. We decided to stay and he didnt ask for any extra money - probably because he knew we would go elsewhere! We did have a lovely time in Prague and the second apartment was much better however if you were planning to stay here do recheck all details through them directly as although we were very careful or you could be in for a shock!

The area is great for quick and easy transport to the city although we would not feel safe late at night or if we had children. I do think there is a lot of development work beginning to make the area more 'cosmopolitan'.

Hope this helps any future travellers, Mr and Mrs Allen

  • Liked — Good value for money compared to most accomodation in Prague
