Went to Prague for 5 nights for a wedding. Got the family suite, no54 on the top floor of the block. It is a large, very clean, well kept apartment, with two double beds and two sofa beds, plus a small kitchen with microwave/fridge/hob and a nice sofa/tv/table football game in the lounge area. We arrived around 10pm when the reception was shut but had no issues collecting keys from the main hotel which is about a 5 min walk from the apartments.
The bathroom is small but has a decent shower over a bath and towels are changed daily.
There is a lot of road noise as this is on the main Rumanska/Legerova route, but really didn't bother us at all, we kind of got used to it,
The apartment does have air conditioning and a fan.
The cleaners are lovely and do an excellent job as does the pleasant receptionist who works from 8am to 8pm each day.
The lift is small and a big rickety but better than climbing 5 flights of stairs!
Less than 5 mins away from the tram line - no22 - which will take you to the main area's. It costs 110cz for a 24 hr tram ticket which you can get from the kiosk/newsagent by the Pavlova tram station. Do NOT travel without one, you will be stopped and fined. You board and then stamp the ticket in the machine just the once to validate it for 24hrs.
5/10 min walk from a Tesco express
15 min walk from the main Wenceslas Square
Come out of the main doors, turn left then left again for;
a very cheap local pub - we paid about £10 for 12 pints of beer - very traditional
a nice bar for a chill outside with red umbrellas
Past this bar, keep going til you see Matyldas on your left - great food, great service, great beer/wine!
Come out of the main doors, turn lright - end of the road, by the tram is a nice Italian, small but friendly
All beer gardens close at 10pm - its a licensing thing!
The MOST expensive meal we had( outside the airport) was 1662cz (£54)- that was for 3 of us, starters,mains, sides and drinks at Matyldas.
The average we paid was 900cz (£29/30) again for lots of food/drinks for 3 of us
We particularly liked a restaurant called MAESTRO (if you are standing on the Charles Bridge, facing AWAY from the castle/that side of the river, go to the end of the bridge, turn left, cross over the road, keep walking along this side, Maestro is on one of the street corners - we paid 650cz here (£20)
Basically its about 35cz for decent pint!
The Beer Museum - old town - fantastic and MUST be done
Vytopna Railway Restaurant - a good littlegimmick
KEEP AWAY FROM THE TOURIST TRAP THAT IS THE SQUARE!
It was in the 30s for all of our time out there
The Castle and the bridge are an absolute must but be prepared to climb a LOT of steps!
For that extra little something, go the Hotel Aria and book a table at their rooftop restaurant - I don't know how much this will cost you as we were there as wedding guests, but believe me when I say its worth it!
Any questions, email me!
