We arrived late on Friday at Prague Airport and were picked up by a taxi driver as prearranged with the reception. After a quick ride (read rollercoaster ride) we reached the apartment and were greeted by a clean space, well equipped kitchen and beds for five in two rooms. Some light snacks and coffee for the espresso machine were sitting on the table together with some info materials about Prague. The reception is not staffed on weekends but everything was arranged with the cab driver.
The apartment was reasonably clean including bedrooms and bathrooms. It appeared recently renovated (maybe a year or two ago) and wear and tear was not yet showing much. It is five minutes to the tram (buy day tickets at the airport - the machines only take coins!) und about half an hour to the city center. The area appears run-down but we felt very safe there (group of five girls). People in the neighborhood were friendly.
Overall, I rate this as a budget accomodation, perfect for a group intent on having fun in Prague. It is not the perfect accomodation for a romantic get-away.
