Aparthotel City 5
Ranked #5 of 646 Hotels in Prague
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2012

Having read reports on TripAdvisor my wife and I had high expectations.

The hotel is run by Kristina who lives up to and exceeds these expectations. She is totally committed to providing first rate customer service. We felt at home straight away.

Welcoming us with a glass of the local beer (delicious), Kristina got out a sheet map for us and explained where all the (many) points of interest are and how to get to them. Kristina is very enthusiastic about Prague and with good reason. Prague also exceeded our high expectations.

Aparthotel is located about 15 to 20 minutes walk from the main city centre and close to the Andel shopping centre. Trams to the City centre run every few minutes. Kristina has a supply of Transport tickets which cost 24 Czech Crowns each and are good for 30 minutes travel. Unless you are in a hurry, or the weather is bad, then the walk along the river bank may be your preferred means of travel.

Breakfast is continental style but with the notable addition of Kristina's toasties. These are not to be missed, neither is the coffee she makes which is freshly ground for each cup she makes and tastes ..... perfect!

The rooms are very comfortable. Ours had a kitchenette area with microwave and fridge. A safe for valuables is provided. There is an En-suite bathroom of course and separate WC.

WiFi is free! There are access points located throughout the hotel providing good signal strength.

Well done Kristina, and thank you. We had a fantastic time in beautiful Prague and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you.

Kristina is as wonderful in person as previous reviewers say. She maximized our 4 days in Prague .Her ballet suggestion allowed us to enjoy a ballet for the same price of going to the movies. Granted our seats allowed us appreciate the ornate ceiling too. Our trip to and from the airport was easy with the arranged the taxi. The Thirsty Deer next door was great and we wished we would have tried it earlier. This season's special of free laundry was a wonderful surprise.

The hotel is a charming older building whose apartments have been completely redone - spotlessly clean,airy and spacious. We did not take public transportation finding the walk to Old Town to be easy, scenic 20 minutes along the river. The hotel is a couple of blocks away from the river. Staying outside of the touristy Old Town was a plus. While we enjoyed the Clock and architecture of Old Town, the Castle District was our favorite.

Would highly recommend and hope to return someday.

We stayed at Aparthotel City 5 on June 19, 2012, for just one night. When we arrived, Kristina was waiting for us. She then treated us to a little beer and hot chocolate which were delicious. We had three rooms and all three were neat and clean and perfect for what we as a family of six needed. Kristina also gave us some advice on where to go so we headed to Vysherod...not sure on the spelling. We had a lovely dinner at Rio's and watched the sunset from the hill just as Kristina had suggested. After our one night at Aparthotel, we met up with a church group but this was my family's favorite place to stay. I found it by using Tripadvisor and would recommend it highly. It's like having a little bit of home with you. Thanks Kristina!!!

We stayed at the Aparthotel City 5 on June 8th for 4 nights. Our choice was made after reading reviews from Tripadvisor.

From the moment we entered and were greeted by the wonderful Kristina I knew it was the right choice. We were made to feel so welcome. We actually felt at home rather than being in a hotel.

We stayed in the studio apartment. The apartment is clean, spacious and well equipped for short or long stay. This included cooker, microwave, fridge, tea & coffee,TV, double bed, table & chairs and clean good sized shower & toilet.

The breakfast is very good & Kristina's toasties are very tasty.

The hotel is situated about 20 to 30 minutes walk from the old town centre of Prague or just 3 stops on the short underground train ride ( very cheap). The train station is approx 200 metres walk from the hotel.

There are also many shops,restaurants,supermarkets all within a few minutes walk. The location is perfect.

We are very happy we made the choice to stay here and would highly recommend this as the place to stay for any visitors to Prague.

Kristina really is charming, she has a great sense of humor and is the perfect host and will help you with anything you need to know. You will feel like you have known her for years.

When we visit this beautiful city again this is where we will be staying.

Our initial contact with City 5 was by email and the response from Kristina was very positive. This was the mood that continued throughout our visit (of 5 nights).
We rented the trilocal apartment because our son joined us during our stay. The apartment was very good with a well equipped kitchen and very nice linen and towels. We had intended to make our own breakfasts but enjoyed Kristina's hospitality instead with a good breakfast that is excellent value for money.
We enjoyed the hotel location which was away from the tourist centre of Prague but at the same time it afforded easy access to all parts of the city.
The local area provides a wide range of amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed eating at the Thirsty Deer restaurant next door.
We cannot speak too highly of Kristina's skills as a host. She made us feel very welcome and made our stay extremely enjoyable. She sets the gold standard for excellence in the hospitality industry.

Room Tip: Discuss your needs with Kristina before booking.

Thanks to Kristina and the Aparthotel in Prague for making our (short) stay so wonderful! We arrived very late at night (around midnight) and Kristina stayed late to make sure we got in ok, parked, and were warmly welcomed. THANK YOU!
We loved our room - plenty big enough for our family of four, with bathroom and kitchenette. We only stayed one night, but I would have like to stay a full week. We'll be back!

There is little to add to the praises already here. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed our time in Prague and at the hotel thoroughly. We had a studio which was roomy and well equipped for all our needs. The temperature was ok in spite of the unusually hot weather. With the windows wide open, it can be noisy on the street side. When the double windows are closed that is not an issue.

Location, as mentioned, is awesome. Public transportation, ATM machines, restaurants, a shopping mall, and more are all within a few minutes walk. It is easy to get to the tourist areas either on foot or by public transport. We took advantage of airport pick up and it was such a pleasure after an overnight flight.

Kristina, though, makes the hotel what it is. From her famous toasties in the morning to her personalized advice on your sightseeing to her always warm welcome, she is amazing!

We would not consider staying anywhere else when we return to Prague.
