“An ideal apartment hotel”
Reviewed 26 September 2009

Apartment hotels are not for everyone or for every trip. We spent 6 nights in Prague and it this one was ideal for us. With that much time we didn't want a small hotel room and restaurant food all week long. The apartment was spacious and clean, with full kitchen facilities. The staff, and particularly Kristina, are a big plus. First, they organized our transportation from the train station, where taxi drivers are notorious for being dishonest, for a reasonable price. Then, from the moment we arrived, we were treated to a wealth of information and tips, from where to eat and how much to pay to how to get to "less traveled" sites. We saw many many parts of Prague and we walked to all of them! We also saw 2 concerts - one jazz and one chamber music - each about a 10-minute walk away. There is a little cafe on the premises for optional breakfast and for drinks during the day. This is not a hotel - no daily cleaning, no room service, no free shampoo - but for our purposes it was ideal.

This establishment is a wonderful gem! We arrived at the hotel very smoothly, picked up from the airport by Gastone himself. We were a group of 4 and we booked a one bedroom with a futon in the living room and stayed for 4 nights. The apartment was very clean and spacious. It had everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, pots and pans, microwave, fridge, silverware, plates. It is the perfect place for families and small groups. Because the apartment is conveniently located near a TESCO ( one of the best features of the hotel), we bought ingredients to make breakfast in our room every day. There was coffee and tea supplied. Breakfast is also provided for 4 Euro in the main dining room downstairs, but because we were having so much fun experimenting with our own european pastries, we did not have a chance to try it. The location is within walking distance to charles bridge /old town ( 20-30 mins), but we usually took the metro which was a few minutes away. The location was ideal for us since it was easy to get to all the sights, but we did not want to be hanging out in the midst of all the tourist trap restaurants. We tried many of the restaurants around the hotel and they were all very good, filled with locals and reasonably priced.
There is no daily cleaning service, but because the rooms were so clean, it was really easy to maintain. Christina and Gastone were suberb! They were always ready to offer suggestions and answer our questions. We loved our stay and would not hesitate to go back one second!

We had travelled for almost 3 weeks staying in various hotels in Eurpoe with 3 children aged from 2 to 9, we arrived at the Aparthotel to a very warm welcome, fantastically clean and spacious accommodation, a truly family friendly place to stay. We felt like we were old friends rather than paying guests. The owners couldn't do enough for us! Our kids loved it, especially the play area! The laundry room was excellent, very handy when travelling with kids! Easy location for visiting all the sights(a few short stops on the tram) plus very near to huge Tesco supermarket for all your essentials if you don't want to eat out! Truly a great place for families visiting Prague. Very highly recommended. When we return to Prague we will definately stay here again.

We stayed in this hotel in April this year but just getting round to writing the review. This place is fantastic! As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and were shown a map of Prague and details of how to get around. Our apartment was incredible! Big kitchen living area, bathroom, bedroom, balconies, very clean. The owners made us feel very welcome throughout the duration of our stay and for 5 euros got a very nice breakfast (and nice homemade toasties!!)

I notice some other reviews complain about the location but it is honestly only a 15 minute walk to the main town square and walk is very nice - and needed after 4 days of non stop eating!!

Would definitely recommend this hotel, and also forgot to mention incredible value for money. Will definitely be back!!

Gastone and Kristina were as kind and helpful innkeepers as you could ever ask for. They made us feel so welcome to their hotel. Gastone and I traded email as soon as I inquired about reservations, and he went out of his way to be friendly and helpful. On checkin, he again went well out of his way to make us feel welcome, and helped set us up with a nice local guide. Kristina also was wonderful when we went down for our wonderful and inexpensive breakfast. It felt like we were staying in these nice peoples' house rather than in a hotel that they managed.

We had a fantastiic visit to Prague, and our stay at the Hotel 5 helped to make it a memorable experience.

Booked this aparthotel on the strength of the reviews below, and it more than met my expectations. Kristina and Gastone are truly friendly and welcoming, and it felt like home as soon as we arrived at the hotel
The room was spacious, very clean and very well equipped, with everything you could need for your stay, teas, coffee, sugar, towels, washing up liquid etc, hand wash in the bathroom, great shower, but no soap or shampoo, that was no problem as we brought our own, and there is plenty of stores nearby, lots of wardrobe space, and safe in apartment.
We never used the self catering in the apartment "apart from the fridge" preferring to have breakfast in the hotel between 8.30 am and 11.00am, which was excellent at 100 csk / 4 euro. There was a wide range of cereals, hams, breads, cheese, juices etc, Kristina was always at hand making coffee, cheese and ham toasties "which are as good as the reviews say" and special sausages, which all took some getting through early on in the morning, but set us up for the rest of the day ahead.
The location of this hotel is also very good with easy acess to the airport by bus 100 airport to Zlicin metro station, metro line B from Zlicin to andel metro station. Kristina and Gastone will also arrange taxi transfer from/to the aiport at a very resonable rate.
The hotel is in andel which is packed full of bars restaraunts cheaper than what you would pay in the old town centre also there is a large shopping centre/mall/ tescos supermarket, with everything you should need, it is about a 20 minute walk to the old town, but quite a nice walk along the river, but if you dont fancy that, andel metro station is just round the corner from hotel, with a couple of stops to the centre, and run every couple of minutes or so, also there is a bus and tram station in andel, and the railway station of smichov is also not very far away. I thought it was quite nice to get away from the hussle of the old town, and into the less touristy area where the hotel is, from time to time.
All in all this is an excellent base for a holiday in Prague, and comes highly recomended by myself, and others that stayed with me.
