What an amazing last minute discovery - we changed our plans literally hours before, and ended up booking this place on airbnb.com (highly rate this site!!). The staff was very helpful and emailed us instructions for check-in right away. The apartments themselves are a short walk away from the check-in counter, but the location is its number one attraction. These apartments are right next to the National Theater and are modern, contemporary styled apartments, quite unlike what you would expect from a Bed & Breakfast. There is a 24/7 concierge which makes the stay comfortable. Great restaurants located literally steps away (do try the Afghan restaurant, Kabul, which is less than 50m away). If you are into photography, and would like to click pics of Charles bridge early morning or late night, this is a great place to set up your vacation spot since the bridge is less than 5 mins walk away! All in all, highly recommend!

The Residence Karolina are lovely apartments in a central location.

We stayed here for a long weekend in February 2011 and had a great stay. The apartments are centrally located (about a 5 min walk to the main square) but far enough out of the main walk to not be noisy at night etc. Tescos is also 2 minutes away, which is great because the apartments are self catering and have a full kitchen.

On arrival we found the Prague City Apartment main office, where we checked in and then Simona took us over to our apartment. The entry is really secure and you are given a credit card style key which is activated for your entire stay.

Our apartment was on the 3rd floor, and was absolutely beautiful, with a large kitchen, living room and bedroom, a walk in wardrobe and bathroom (the walk in wardrobe was bigger than my wardrobe at home!). The bedroom and living room had large full length windows with a view of the castle (if you stood on your tip toes! - although I have been told the floors above have full views) and there was a patio door out of the living room to a balcony.

The apartment was very clean and decorated in a modern style, there was a maid service every morning which was very efficient. There was also free wi-fi, which was really useful and a TV/ DVD player in the living room. If you should need it there is also a washing machine!

All in all I would have no problem at all in recommending the Residence Karolina to anyone looking for a stylish place to stay in Prague.

The location is very good, five minutes walking distance from Charles' bridge. The apartment measure around 100 squared meters! It's very comfortable, it has everything you could need, very quiet, in other words it's perfect!

We have just returned from four days staying in the one bedroom on the 4th floor of Residence Karolina (Apartment 41) and couldn't recommend it highly enough. The apartment itself is modern, spacious and immaculately presented with two bathrooms, a huge bed, fabulous rooftop views north-west towards the Hrad and a large, well equipped kitchen - we bought breakfast groceries and dined in a couple of mornings.

We were upgraded to this apartment having originally booked Residence Brehova and I'm so glad, as the location was great and very convenient for exploring both sides of the river and accessing public transport especially the trams, which we really enjoyed using. Despite being very central, we also found it a quiet and peaceful place to stay.

I couldn't fault Prague City Apartments either - staff were very helpful, the apartment was cleaned daily and airport transfers were prompt and quick. All round, a great experience.

We stayed for 5 nights on the 5th floor... our room had an incredible view over the roof tops of Prague and the castle.

It is the nicest apartment we've ever stayed in and it was much larger than we expected. Upon arrival we were greeted by the driver at the airport and then taken to the reception, then over to the apartment. Everything went smoothly with check-in.

We couldn't believe how QUIET the apartment was! One of our favorite parts of the place was the big king size bed... it was so comfortable that I wish I could take that bed home with me!

The location is perfect and we would go to the Cafe Louvre each morning for coffee. The apartment is walking distance to everything and we even would walk to the main train station from there (about a 20 minute walk).

The service was impeccable and we can't wait to return!!!

We stayed at Apartment number 41, which had a GREAT view over the roofs of Prague. We could admire the castle and the towers of old town over a cup of coffee directly from our balcony! The one-bedroom apartment was spacious, tidy and modern with everything working perfectly. There were all necessary amenities for cooking and even a washing machine for the laundry. Location was perfect and we could walk around in the old town, with the "base" close enough when our 5-year old got tired. No noise was heard anywhere and we had undisturbed sleep every night.
Service was impeccable and my special requests (conveyed conveniently over online chat!) were delivered exactly as wished. Highly recommended! Will go there again when we return to Prague!

TIP: During heating season, to keep the heating at a stable level turn the heaters on "3" and adjust the temperature from the central unit to desired level.
(Do not mix this up with the air conditioning, which is used outside the heating season for cooling the apartment!)
