We stayed at the 5th floor apartment with my family (all grown-ups). First of all, if you are expecting a real hotel, be prepared for disappointment. It is a regular house, and Royal Road Residence has the reception and breakfast room on 2nd floor, and a few rooms on 4th, 5th and 6th floor. Otherwise it's normal people's apartments. I must say that the location was really top-notch, which made up much of the negative aspects of the place. Right on the touristy Karlova street and near the Charles bridge.
The apartment itself was very spacious, with a large living room, a fully equipped kitchen and a double bedroom. However, it was totally outdated and in real need of a thorough renovation. The photos on their website do not tell the true story about the condition of the rooms. The cheap Ikea furniture had seen its best days a while ago, the floor and windows were in terrible condition (we're not sure but on the floor there was something that looked like mold...) and both the bath tube and toilet were leaking, the latter making a really annoying sound.
There was some kind of a gas heater in the room which made a terrible sound at night - I slept on the living room sofa and I didn't get a minute of sleep the first night. From then on we turned the heater off for the night - but somebody had to get up before 7 am to turn it back on so we'd have some warm water for shower. I wonder how cold it might get at night without the heater on in December for example...
The breakfast was quite modest but ok. Not much variety but enough to feed you before a day of sightseeing and shopping.
We survived, but I wouldn't stay here again.
