Jilska Residence Apartments

Reviewed 17 July 2012

Spent 5 nights in the studio apartment just off the central courtyard and really enjoyed it.

Cleanliness was average (surfaces and bedding were spotless but don't look under the bed). Amenities were fine (standard bathroom with good shower and small reasonably-well-equipped kitchen). Caretaker was very pleasant and willing to help although not always reachable. Being on the inner courtyard it was extremely quiet and secure.

But the big attraction here is the location. Being only 5 minutes from both the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square (and tourist info centre), we walked everywhere. Dining options nearby are plentiful and the Tescos grocery store a few blocks away is well stocked and inexpensive.

All in all a good apartment in a wonderful city. If we have the good fortune to go back we'll gladly stay here again.

Stayed in these apartments dec 2011. perfect situation for the Old Town Square - less than 5 mins walk away. Stayed in old town exclusive apartment which was spacious, warm and well-equipped. Had a problem with the heating going off one day which was repaired immediately when we telephoned the office, so no complaint there! we expected to be staying in apartment B41, but there was a problem with the lift door on that floor, and as we specified the need of a lift we were put into the old town exclusive which we were quite happy about. The transfers to and from the airport went well and the company rep greeted us and was very helpful. This is the second time we have used Apartments Apart (Krakow 2010) and both times we have been impressed. This apartment has lovely views over the city rooftops. There is a couple of restaurants right next door - particularly handy for the first night if you have not had time to explore further. would recommend these apartments and definitely stay there next time we visit Prague.

We stayed for a couple of nights. There was plenty of room and the apartment was clean. We had a two bedroom apartment with 1.5 bathrooms, living room, full kitchen and large entrance. We only slept there and it was relatively inexpensive for the amount space we had for all five of us. It was a little less than a 1/4 mile from the Old Town Square where we met our tour guide in front of a Starbucks. This was perfect for us because we didn't drive a car and i wouldn't suggest driving one here as the streets are narrow and parking is limited. It was so close to the main sites that we took two tours and then walked around  later to enjoy a little of the night life. Only concern was that check-in was not located where the rooms are, so when you book this hotel make sure you read all the information sent to you by email to avoid wasting time and money. Other than that it was a very comfortable stay and just what we were looking for.

We should have stayed in Jilska 4 Apartments nr. C21 for four nights, but we left very disappointed already after one night. It is suggested that this apartment has 3 bedrooms, but this is not the case. The apartement is stacked with beds, we counted 10, but there are only 2 bedrooms, one directly situated on a very busy street with a lot of noise from people walking buy until after 2 a.m. and the other bedroom is situated above the terrace of a restaurant that stayed open outside until midnight. The next morning they started working at 7 a.m. on the road and we were shaking in our beds due to the drilling. The organisation (Apartmentsapart.com/Old Town Apartments) from which we rented this apartment knew this on forehand, but they did not inform us about this. The noise was terrible. There is a bed in the kitchen (?!), there are beds on the corridor, there are beds in a attic room without windows. There is no living room, only a couch - and a bed - in the kitchen. The place was not clean. We had to do the dishes before we could use them. This apartment is suitable for a larger group of young people who want to party and enjoy the cheap beer in one of the busiest and most touristic parts of Prague. We found it absolutely not suitable for a family that is looking for a nice spot to enjoy the cultural sights of Prague.

Apartment is very well situated - about a 3 minute walk from the old town square/astronomical clock. Apartment is roomy, clean and the kitchen appears to be well equipped, though we did not cook. Pictures are better than the apartment we had. Only problem is noise. Apartments are situated above a karaoke bar which goes from 8pm - 2am. Windows are not noise proof and our son sleeping in the living room bed required earplugs. We used the car service to and from the train station and would highly recommend it.

These apartments are not posh or modern, but provide spacious, convenient reasonably priced accommodations. Perfect easy access to all the highlights of Prague. Including the Tesco :) Comfortable beds, plenty of seating, high ceilings, lots of windows that open wide. We paid less than 80 GBP per night in August.

You will need this phone number after booking online to confirm before your arrival (and it is difficult to find): ---------

I'd suggest booking transportation with the management company to/from the train station or airport (it is near a tram stop, but you have to get the keys from a location on the other side of the river), and Prague taxi drivers are notoriously crooked (our guide knew of one party that had been charged about 300 USD for a 15 minute ride). The driver can check you in and should have the keys with him(although ours didn't and this required 20 extra minutes in heavy traffic), saving you getting across the river to pick up the keys on your own. Prague is not easy to navigate for a newcomer.

The apartment was clean, but as it is older, it does not "sparkle" clean. No directions were provided to the washing machine, and our apartment did not have a dryer, but when I requested one, a drying rack was provided (Prague was the middle stop on our 10-day family holiday, so I planned on some quick laundry loads during our 3 days here). The kitchen has the basics (gas hob, cooker, micro, toaster). The hair dryer did not work, but I didn't bother asking for a replacement. Our apartment had a large tub with the shower, so my 7 year old was quite happy.

****** If you are awakened easily, either travel with a sound machine or white noise app or do not book this apartment. The lift is slow and old, so discourteous guests bump their wheelie luggage down the marble interior stairs very loudly quite early in the morning (too much work to pick it up and carry it?!?!) The common halls and stairs are not carpeted, so the sound carries. Also, you could be disturbed by the cafe in the ground floor courtyard (it didn't bother us).
