During my three-night stay, Kristina, the fiery-headed proprietress, made sure I had everything I needed. Solo travelers usually get short shrift in other hotels (especially if they're women); they get the lousiest rooms and the most indifferent service. Not so with Kristina, who makes solo travelers VIPs: I had free cappucinos with breakfast, and a light-filled, spacious garret room adjacent to a terrace covered in thriving houseplants. Kristina is ready and lightning-fast to get you anything you need, from change for large bills to an electrical adapter to bus/tram tickets to maps to postage. Kristina's a riot, and has opinions and advice about what to see and where to eat that are every bit as fiery as her hair.
Rooms at Aparthotel 5 are simply-appointed (right out of the IKEA catalog, as far as I could tell) but clean, bright, and comfortable. I had a mini-kitchenette with a good-sized fridge and a full set of dishes. I scoffed at the bed at first, with its relatively thin foam kid's-bunk-bed mattress, but it was the most comfortable sleep I had in Europe, as it turns out.
Aparthotel 5 is across the river from Staré Mĕsto (the old, pedestrian-zoned, cobblestoned center of Prague), but is still only a 20-minute walk from the old town square. When I got to the tourist-clogged old town square, I was actually relieved to be staying well away from it, because life at Aparthotel is much cheaper and quieter. Aparthotel is, for example, within 3 blocks of two different Tesco supermarkets, and a cheap, decent pizza/pasta restaurant is a half-block away.
