Reviewed 3 March 2014

We had a very lovely long weekend. Appia residence has a quiet location and it is still near all historic places. There were 6 of us and we had a nice suite with a small sitting area and kitchen. The hotel is uphill, so you get some exercise :) The stuff was friendly and helpful. Especially we enjoyed the breakfast room.

Appia hotel is located in a nice old building, as almost every single hotel in Mala Strana, so it's difficult to praise Appia based on architecture. The rooms are very spacious though, with not only comfortably sized bedroom but also large entrance room and very big bathroom.

Breakfast is good but still quite a usual fare for an upper scale hotel, not something I'd particularly rave about. Staff is typical Czeck.

I like Mala Strana side more than the Old Town but Appia is a bit of a walk up a hill. I'd stay somewhere else if I'd be returning. There is so much to choose from and I believe I could have done better.

We stayed in Prague for a couple of days. Appia residence was recommended to us by friends.
Truly a most romantic place, the views during the day and night from our balcony were amazing.
It is in a very quiet neighborhood with plenty of restaurants just around the corner. The staff was amazing very helpful.The hotel is done in a very beautiful, stylish decor. Loved the breakfast room and the breakfast spread was fantastic.The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. Definitely have to go back in the summer to enjoy the outside terrace.

It was our pleasure to met director Marcela , she was very nice and she gave us a lot of advices where to go and what to see in Prague. Thank u again . We enjoy it a lot.

Appia is located in a very quiet place. There is no crowder bars or beggars playing a guitar near by. It is in the area of American embassy which makes it secure. Rooms are very net located in an ancient building with an atmosphere of a 16 th century city. Restaurant is very comfortable with wooden roof. The maid is very polite woman of honor. Breakfast never repeats its warm dishes. The stuff was very helpful and solved any problem if any. A taxi transfer was organized from airport and backwards for a fair price with the most comfortable cars. Rooms were kept warm in winter and clean! I'd like to thank all the Appia employees for their perfect service that made our stay unforgettable!

P.S. Visit "U sedmi schwabu" restaurant nearby on the steps between Sporkova and Nerudova street. It is worth going there - perfect kitchen and first class drinks accompanied with a kind service makes you feel good. Medieval place with a lot of armor and skeletons in the lowest floor add some unforgettable emotions to your stay in Prague

We chose Appia by narrowing our search progressively, and picked it even though its Tripadvisor rating at that time (May 2013) wasn’t spectacular. My final assessment is that we stumbled on to something very good. After looking at maps, reviews and locations of sights in Prague, we had decided it was going to have to be either Stare Mesto (Old Town) or Mala Strana (Lesser Town), and we zeroed in on the latter on the advice of a friend and Prague native who argued that Mala Strana was quieter and less touristy than Stare Mesto. We found that to be true, and even though the Old Town Square is a bit of a hike (this is relative; nothing in central Prague is unreachable on foot) the Castle is close, there are several nice places to eat close by, and the neighborhood is very charming (again relative; nothing in Prague is NOT charming!). After we had got to Mala Strana, Appia won out on the strength of pictures on its website, tariff (about CZK 11,500 for 5 nights with breakfast), and the psychologically comforting proximity to familiar landmarks (the German embassy is a neighbor, and the US embassy is 200 meters away).[Point about Czech crowns (koruna): The country is part of the Eurozone, and euros are the official currency, but prices at most restaurants/hotels/souvenir shops are quoted in CZK, cabbies and street vendors ask for crowns and give you change in crowns, and if you have only euros, they make an on-the-spot conversion at a rate that can be arbitrary. Best to change your euros/dollars at the airport/train station as you arrive, or at banks in the city as you need the cash, but (obviously) never on the street.]
We arrived at the Prague main train station (‘hlavni nadrazi’ in Czech; you’ll see it written as ‘Praha hl.n’) and took a cab to the hotel. [Small hiccup there, none of the big guys hanging out at the taxi stand spoke English or knew the hotel, and quoted random tariffs from 500 crowns to 800 crowns. We’d been advised to look for the yellow taxis that had ‘AAA’ written prominently on them (several cabs had ‘AAA’ written, but not very prominently, and they weren’t yellow and didn’t look like cabs, so I am not sure what they were) and there weren’t any AAAs at the stand when we walked up. It took 15 minutes for one to show up, and the driver kept shaking his head morosely as he read the hotel address (Sporkova) until I hesitatingly mentioned ‘Malostranske namesti’ tram station, which I had seen on a map earlier, and suggested the hotel was somewhere nearabout. He lit up like a bulb, and off we went, and it cost us 200 crowns for the trip. (Tip: Mention Malostranske namesti or St Nicholas Cathedral or the US embassy if you are lost trying to get to the hotel. The official address, ‘Sporkova’, doesn’t ring too many bells.)]
Our room, on a sort of raised ground level, was like a studio apartment, beginning with an ante-room that opened into a very large and airy bedroom, and a truly huge bathroom. The wi-fi Internet connection (part of the deal) was strong and fast, there were many sockets to plug in gadgets, and the bed and chairs were very comfortable. The hotel has lovely stone staircases, and hallway lights that sense footsteps, which is a good energy-saving idea.
Breakfast is served in a lovely romantic attic with wooden floors and ceiling, and the spread is elaborate and satisfying. There are breads, cold meats, cheeses, eggs, fruit, juices and hot beverages. We enjoyed it, and all the other guests seemed to be doing the same.
[A related point: Breakfast is the only meal Appia serves, and there’s nothing in the minibar other than candy, nuts and crisps. Which means that anyone who does not feel up to going out for dinner faces limited options. We saw a couple of places to eat very close, but they didn’t seem to be too popular with tourists, and all the bigger restaurants are a 7-10 minute (sometimes uphill) walk away. Be aware also that most eating places start winding up by about 10 pm, which we thought was probably a little too early for an international tourist hotspot in the north European summer.]
The Appia staff are friendly and helpful, but you can’t expect to have long conversations with them in English. The wonderful and very efficient lady at breakfast can’t speak or understand a word of English (I struggled to get across to her that I wanted a bowl for the cereal), which means you draw a blank even if you’re trying to thank her for all the effort that she so visibly makes. The reception staff are somewhat better, even though I failed to make myself understood while asking if they had a travel desk or agent who might help us get seat reservations for the train tickets we had for Vienna. [Appropriate here to slip in a good word about Cesky Drahy, the Czech national railways: We travelled three different railways on this trip through Europe, and the Czechs repeatedly showed themselves to be the cheapest and most helpful. Much appreciated.]
One final point about Appia’s location. It is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood of cobbled, narrow, up-and-down streets where the silence is broken only when a car rumbles past or tourists walk by, chatting loudly and dragging their strolleys, but all steets are paved with stones, the gaps between which can be 2 inches or more, so it’s a good idea to wear hardy walking or running shoes, and definitely avoid pointy heels -- you might break your shoes or worse. (We did see some women in heels tick-tock past, but perhaps that’s only a lot of luck and years of practice.) The closest sight is the Castle; the Appia is, as their site says, literally “in its shadow”. Do use the proximity to go there more than once if you can; the massive St Vitus Cathedra is gorgeous, the view of the city breathtaking, and the street band that plays outside the main gate very charming. Enjoy Prague and the Appia!

Dear client,

Thank you for your feedback. For your information the car security check was because of the US embassy located on the way to our hotel. We are glad that you were satisfied with our services, and hope you will visit us soon again.
