After spending 5 days in Prague for a conference, my family flew out to join me for the weekend. We had looked at a suite in the hotel where the conference was taking place (the Sheraton on Zytna) but it was a lot more expensive, with very limited space and a 30 minute walk from the old town and its attractions. We chose the Retezova for its location and the fact that the apartment had loads of space with a separate bedroom for our boys. The facilities were modern, generally in good condition and everything was spotlessly clean. The beds were firm and there were extra pillows in the cupboards, a very useful touch. The only niggle was a velux window set in the ceiling above our bed (see picture above) whose curtain was broken. However, this was a minor thing. The apartment itself, the Paris / #8, was well-appointed and renovated with 2 bathrooms and stripped wooden floor. My wife suggested that the sofa could have been more suited to slouching - it was a firmly upholstered regency style design - but again, this is a matter of taste. A principal selling point is the location: as others have observed, it is a stone's throw from the Old Square, but discreet enough not to be noisy (apart from the odd stag party wandering by during the evening). It is literally a 5 minute walk to the Charles Bridge - we have 2 boys of 6 and 3, so this made getting out and about very easy. It was bitterly cold, but as long as you wrap up warm, there is no more beautiful city than Prague in the winter to experience by foot. The temperature in the apartment was easy to regulate, with radiators and windows which actually opened (a novelty in a hotel). There is also a fridge, well stocked with beer and wine and nibbles, realistically priced, so no need to head off to the nearby supermarket (funnily enough, a Tesco... about 5 minutes walk away too...).
