I spent a weekend in Appia Residences in Prague at the end of June 2013 with my family.
This is an excellent “value for money” place to stay in Prague. It is very conveniently located and in a very secure area of Prague. It is situated near the Italian, German and American embassies. When you come to your hotel by vehicle – you will be stopped by the US embassy, and your vehicle will be checked.
These “residences” are in fact like self-catering apartments – but our room rates included breakfast. Appia Residences was located within walking distance of some nice restaurants.
The apartment was spacious, clean and adequate for us. It had an entrance hall which led into the dining room/kitchenette, the bedroom and the bathroom – all beautifully presented. The beds were comfortable. We had a sofa bed for the children. Our room overlooked the courtyard.
Breakfast was in another building on an upper floor. The breakfast room had barn-like roof beams and it looked very spacious and appealing. At the entrance of the breakfast room, I noticed a photo of the President of the Czech Republic taken when he visited the breakfast room. Breakfast was very good – consisting of cereals, hot and cold milk, fruit juices, toast, buns and rolls, teas, coffees, cheeses, fruits, yoghurt, fried eggs, sausages, and grilled tomatoes.
The staff are very helpful and friendly. If you need a taxi, they will book one for you to come and pick you up at the hotel. In fact, you should always get a taxi to come to a specific hotel, restaurant or office to pick you up. Otherwise, it will cost you double if you catch a taxi in the streets.
About 200 metres from the Appia Residences is the Alchemist Hotel – which is a grand opulent hotel that you should visit.
Prague is a beautiful city steeped in history. Public transport is not expensive. Most of the people spoke English.
You are better off staying at Appia Residences as it is definitely value for money. I would say that it would beat some of the well known hotel brand names
