Description from the owner
Step back in time but enjoy the comfort of today! Romance & history emanate from this delightful 2 bedroom apartment in a 443 year old house in the very heart of Mala Strana, the oldest and most sophisticated quarter of Prague. Mala Strana gained town status in 1257. The Baroque churches and palaces which give the area its charm date from the 17th & 18th centuries.
Gaslit and winding streets lead you to the house, built in 1570 (2 years after what is believed to be the date of Shakespeare's birth!). From the pretty cobbled square, through the ancient door, up three flights of steps (Please Note - no lift) , you enter the apartment - 70...Read more

The Best apartment in Prague
Staying in Mala Strana was the perfect way to have the full Prague experience. The view of the Charles Bridge from this beautiful apartment was stunning especially at night. The apartment was extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. Claire was a lovely host by welcoming us at the door upon our arrival and showed us all the important tips of the accommodations. Mala Strana is safe but busy little section of town. We were able to walk to all attractions and there were plenty of delicious restaurants nearby. Pay attention to Claire's recommendations in her guidebook which she developed for the guests. She has great culinary taste.

Great location and view
Great location, amenities and services add up to great value
The apartment lives up to its name and rave review. The view of the Charles Bridge, the River and City, especially in a clear full-moon night is priceless. Its proximity to the subway and bus stations makes getting around the city and day trips a breeze. Many attractions, parks, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The owner's hospitality and attention to details adds a special touch to a wonderful experience. Do take up her offer of arranging transportation to and from the airport. It eliminates the worry and hassle.
Adorable apartment, Best Location
We've rented apartments in several cities in Europe and this was easily the best ever. So comfortable, with all the modern conveniences combined with 16th century charm. We were there for 10 days with our two grown daughters. It was very nice the way each bedroom had an adjacent room that could be closed off so we didn't disturb each other. Kitchen was the perfect size. We ate all our breakfasts and one dinner at the apartment. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet at night -- no street noise. It was a very easy walk to all the major sites.
The taxi from/to the airport made everything so easy and free of anxiety. Clare was wonderful to work with. We visited at Christmas and she even had a little tree decorated in the apartment. How sweet is that??
I can only echo what the other reviewers have said. This place was perfect for our family of four. We loved the location, the layout, the view, everything. Claire was fantastic; she couldn't have done any more to make us more comfortable. She really went above and beyond, leaving food in the fridge, bringing us Christmas cookies, arranging taxis...such a lovely hostess! If you can handle the three flights of stairs to the top floor, this is a wonderful place to stay that is close to the Old Town, overlooks the bridge,and is surrounded by restaurants and shopping. We would return in a heartbeat! Thanks for a great stay, Claire!!!

Amazing few days in beautiful Prague
We have just returned from a fantastic few days in Prague. The apartment was everything we were hoping for and more. Unbelievable location right by Charles bridge with all the major sights within easy walking distance. The apartment was clean spacious with lots of character. Spotlessly clean, modern facilities and with good views of the bridge. Clare met us at the apartment and provided us with excellent information on places to eat, directions, prices etc. It really was a completely hassle free trip in the perfect location and would recommend to anyone. Thanks for a fabulous stay- cant wait to go back!
Truly outstanding apartment, location & City
Situated three minutes away from Charles Bridge the apartment is in a lovely quiet area, whilst remaining close to all of the main attractions (Castle 10 mins away, old town 10 mins, Jewish quarter 15 mins walk).
The apartment itself is spacious, modern and full of character. It has a fully stocked kitchen (with dishwasher), washing machine and tumble dryer. Everything you could need for a vacation or indeed longer stay.
Claire, the owner, met us on arrival to show us around and also upon our departure. She really is a fountain of local knowledge and provides lots of information on restaurants, foreign exchange etc.
The owner had really gone above and beyond to ensure that our stay was most comfortable. There were plenty of towels, extra duvets if we got cold (very good central heating system though so it wasn't necessary for our stay), tea & coffee and a pint of milk for arrival. Plenty of loo roll (it's the little things that make all the difference!) and cleaning products too!(bin liners, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc.) It's amazing how many self catering places I've been to that haven't provided these extras.
The only thing to be aware of is that it is up three flights of stairs (it does state this on the info and Claire, the owner, did make sure that we were aware of this before booking). None of our party are particularly fit and we really didn't find it a problem.
To sum it all up, I really don't believe we could have found a better apartment if we'd tried.
excellent apartment, great view, terrific location
This apartment was even better than expected - excellent views of the old town river and of course the Charles Bridge, and a fantastic location in Mala Strana - three minutes walk to trams into the Old City, and readily accessible to all the sights. We loved the proximity to the C'Bridge and the view was if anything even better than that advertised. We also discovered how good it is to slip out to the Charles Bridge in the early morning - before all the tourists arrive. Claire who welcomed us to the apartment provided mountains of local information from shops to restaurants and local sights. She is a real professional - one of the most thorough people we have ever met, and yet very kindly as well. (She organised for a taxi to meet us at Prague Station, very much appreciated ) The apartment was extremely clean and well laid out with all those items that travellers might need close at hand - really thoughtfully and stylishly furnished. We greatly enjoyed wandering around the streets of Prague, especially our local area of Mala Strana, or buying a 24 hour tram ticket for only a few dollars (110Kc - about $A6) and seeing all over the city. We greatly enjoyed the Franz Kafka Museum - two minutes walk away, but Prague is spectacular for many things. Loved the food and the service at Hertegova Cihelna (very well produced and presented food, and a mild autumn night outside watching darkness fall on the river and the Charles Bridge - ah me ...!) Less ambitious but still with classy food (more choices for the family vegetarian) and topnotch service was Tri Stoleti less than a minute's walk away.
Our only complaint on the apartment was the stairs - not that there were three flights to reach ourr apartment - we can handle that (mostly) - but rather because the house is 400 plus years the tread on some of the stairs was uneven and one needed to concentrate - especially walking down for some reason. But really this was small annoyannce compared to our overall experience in this truly excellent apartment - thank you again very much. We will be back - soon I hope!!

What a wonderful place
My wife, daughter, her boyfriend and I truly enjoyed staying in this apartment. The view of the Charles Bridge and river looking back toward the Old Town was fantastic. The location couldn't have been better with easy walking access to all the major sights yet on a fairly quiet, non-touristy street (is there any street in Prague that doesn't have tourists?) The layout allowed privacy for my daughter and boyfriend yet gave us a nice place to settle down after a long day of sightseeing. Having a kitchen to make our own breakfasts and to keep the "pivo" cold was great. The owner couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. We couldn't get our iPads to work with the WiFi but my daughter's iPod touched did work fine (go figure?) (and many of the restaurants in the neighborhood had free WiFi.) All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend this place. (It is a 3 floor walk up so pack lightly.)

The will to return
We have stayed at Prague "only" 7 dies, but thanks to the apartment and his owner, Clare, the stay seems like more longer. Like many other reveiwers, we think is a great apartment to have a pleasure stay in a amazing and lovely city. If we return to Prague any time, we think of course where we have been. Thanks Clare!
perfect location, clean as a whistle
Everything about staying here worked out great. We paid for a ride from the airport--which made everything easy; cab driver was there holding a sign to meet us--and the owners met us at the apartment to show us around and give us keys. The apartment has an amazing view of the Charles Bridge and is in pristine condition. Bathroom, kitchen--everything clean and fresh--good mattresses, and amenities (washer, dryer, dishwasher, tv, dvd player--although our U.S. dvds didn't work in it, they had a number there to choose from). Neighborhood quiet but easily walkable to everything you want to see. If I went back to Prague, this is exactly where I'd want to stay.
The apartment in even nicer than the wonderful pictures. It is a great location, has everything and even more than what you would need. I stayed there for 18 days and it was a wonderful stay. Clare, the owner, thinks of everything and has anything you might ever need in her apartment. She is also very helpful and accommodating. whatever help you need in Prague, she has either already thought of it or will help you with it.
She helped my parents with their transportation when they came to visit me, she even helped me find a place to stay when I needed to extend my stay.
I had the most pleasant experience of my life. I would go back there anytime and would recommend it to anyone!!!
The best place in Prague
Situated in a perfect location, the apartment is very well equiped with everything that you might possibly need. Clare, the owner, takes care of her belongings and it certainly shows. Just everything was sparkling clean and nothing was amiss. It is very quiet. We could even sleep with the windows open. Speaking of windows the vues from the windows in the front and back were just spectacular. Prague is a beautiful city. Everywhere you turn there is something amazing to admire.
Even before we arrived Clare was so helpfull giving us all kinds of information about Prague. As we were coming in by train Clare arranged the taxi from the train station. This was so convenient for us. When we checked in Clare was there to welcome us which we greatly appreciated.
I would definately stay there again if I ever have the chance to back back.
A home away from home.
We couldn't have had a better location plus, the concern of the owner made us feel we could call with any problem. I thought the apartment was spacious and confortable and loved that we could use the washer before we continued our travels. She had prepared an entire book of what to do and where to go within Prague. We followed the suggestions and had a wonderful time. I really recommend this property to anyone who wants an easy and beautiful location.
Great location, great host
Everything is as described. We stayed 3 nights and did not do any cooking, but everything was there if we wish to do so. Everything was clean and the apartment had the most beautiful views. The area it is situated is very beautiful and I enjoyed my evening walks around there and feeling I am back hundreds of years ago. This beautiful apartment is situated on the top floor of an old building, so of course no lifts and if you have heavy luggage make sure you can manage to carry them up. We walked everywhere from there, across the Charles Bridge all the way to Wenceslaw Square, or up to the Castle. Prague is so beautiful.
Rolvenden, Kent, UK
It's all true!! It's brilliantly located - one minute from, and with a view over, the Charles Bridge; yet tucked down a quiet side street. It's clean and well equipped. And Clare, the owner, is friendly, helpful and well organised. My wife, 83 yr old father-in-law and I had a great time in Prague.
Charles Bridge from bed?
Really? Yup. You can doze off while enjoying the view, and wake up to sunrise on the river. Don't hesitate on this one.

Wonderful launching spot to see Prague and very charming
The Romantic apartment again lives up to its reputation and is a wonderful location from which to walk everywhere in central Prague. If you like to walk, you will be so happy with the possibilities. The apartment is lovely in nearly all respects, nicely updated, and very professionally managed by Clare, you feel very well looked after. There is lots of privacy and peace as well and you can see Prague in action from the windows but far enough away to not be intrusive. We completely enjoyed our stay and the only improvement would be a single queen mattress in the master rather than split mattresses.
Excellent. Exactly how it is advertised; only better.
Everything in the advertisemnt and past reviews for this apartment are true. Perfect location; well equiped apartment; organised and limitlessly helpful owner and a most reasonable cost. We have already booked to stay again; and longer this time.

Stay here if you want an extra magical Prague experience
A group of four of us stayed in this apartment a couple of weeks ago on a brief (3 nights) visit to Prague, and we did not want to leave. I can't wait to return for a longer visit.
It's such a rarity to book a vacation lodging that not only lives up to the photos, but is even prettier, more picturesque, comfortable and spacious than the photos suggest. If you are like me, and you want every detail to be wonderful when you spend your money and precious vacation days on a special trip, don't hesitate to book this fantastic apartment. Clare does everything right, and the apartment has that balance of perfect location, breathtaking view, old world charm, modern comfort, tasteful furnishings and spotless cleanliness that is so hard to find on a reasonable budget. Thank you, Clare. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Prague.
Mere words cannot do it justice
Wow! This property maintains peace and serenity while being smack-dab in the center of all the action. The Charles Bridge and Vlatava River are right outside the window, and are a 30 second walk away on a moderately-used side street. It is perfectly positioned between historic Stare Mesto (Old Town) and the Prague Castle, and has easy access to shopping, tours and museums. The property fronts the charming Certovka (a sort of canal).
My one caveat is to those with mobility issues - accessing this property requires 56 stairs. It is well worth the climb - it is above the din of humanity and has an excellent and charming view.
Our stay was 11 days, and we were well entertained the entire time. Prague is like Disneyland for adults - around every corner there is a historical site, a museum, a garden, a fabulous restaurant, a boat tour, a jazz or classical music concert, all sorts of things to discover. The clothes washer and full kitchen were especially beneficial on a stay of this length, as we were able to enjoy our stay without the constant search for food or facilities. Do not hesitate to plan an extended stay, you will not run out of things to do.
Do not miss the Wallenstein Gardens, or a dinner at Cafe de Paris. Both are an easy walk from this location!
Our stay included transfers to and from the airport (which were handled flawlessly and conveniently) and an orientation to sites and resources in the area.
Excellent location, perfect apartment
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location could not be more perfect. The owners were extremely helpful and as they currently manage the property where there to greet us. Everything you could think of was supplied. You could immediately tell it is a much loved apartment that is taken care of to an extremely high standard.
They the dining room has a table to one side, a desk with internet access and two easy chairs. This means that each bedroom has a sitting area which makes it even more perfect for two couples or loke ourselves with our adult daughter.
I do not hestitate to recommend this place and would return there again.
Charming - we would definitely return
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful stay. It is indeed a romantic area and the apartment is sweet, well-maintained, quiet (we never heard any neighbors and had no issues sleeping although it was cool enough that we didn't have the windows open at night) and comfortable.
From first contact, the owner, Clare was very reliable and provided excellent service. We accepted her assistance with taxi transportation to/from the airport and were pleased we did. She took great care in helping us check-in and made us feel at home with some welcome items in the fridge and maps and tips to help us get acquainted in the city.
My husband and I enjoyed the area around the apartment more so than the Old Town. We would get up early and stroll the streets, taking in the quaint streets and bridges. We would then head back to the apartment for breakfast before heading out for the day. Prague is a great walking city. The location of the apartment made it very easy to pop back and forth whenever we felt like it.
Larger grocery stores (or those with good produce) were a bit of a walk (10-15 minutes?), but we shopped on the way home and then if we needed one or two items, we shopped at a very convenient little store around the corner. It worked well.
The kitchen has all the basics. Touches of home such as a dishwasher, teapots etc. Bedrooms were cozy, comfortable bed with nice duvets and pillows. We travelled light so the washing machine was appreciated to refresh our clothes.
I would definitely recommend this apartment. We enjoyed the slower pace of Prague (relative to Paris) and the apartment is a great place to share a bottle of wine and a quiet meal with your loved one.
Besides walking the various areas of town, we really enjoyed a couple of hikes up Petrin Hill. At the top you are rewarding with lovely rose gardens. It was very peaceful for those who like to get away from the city for a bit.
A real gem of an apartment - all you need and more
We stayed in the apartment as a family of four - ages 62, 58, 23 and 21.
This apartment is excellent value - a real gem. It is very well appointed with everything one could need and more - the owner has put thought and imagination into ensuring the visitors' comfort and convenience and she does her best to make sure you will feel at home there and stress free.
It is spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and sofas, plenty of linen, kitchen things etc - and in addition to tea, coffee,milk etc there was even some good Czech beer in the fridge on our arrival!
It is in a very pretty street - quiet peaceful and quaint - yet amazingly it is only minutes walk away from the Charles Bridge, Castle, Petrin Hill, Old Town and tram routes. You can also buy food a short distance away and there is a good restaurant - Tri Stoleti - down the street opposite.
The views from the back windows are lovely with the ancient Charles bridge, the light on the river and the spires of the old city... and even the street view on the other side is atttractive and pretty. Although the apartment is on the top floor with stairs, we really hardly noticed this and felt it was well worth it for the peace, seclusion and views.
We enjoyed the Opera, the goulash and the beer and we took the funicular up Petrin Hill to walk in the forest and see the city views. We took a river trip (more good beer) saw some wonderful Czech 19th century paintings and took hundreds of photos of beautiful art nouveau buildings...
I would recommend the apartment to friends and family with no hesitation at all.
Best View in Prague
This place is a an absolute must stay.It is situated in a 400 year old house with.a stunning view of the Charles Bridge, it is very central, clean and comfortable with all conveniences provided.
The owner, Carol, was very helpful but without being overbearing.
Overall the best place to stay in Prague.

The Room with the View
Situated at the historical heart of the city, this apartment is the ideal place from which to explore all the riches Prague has to offer. The welcome,hospitality and attention to detail received from Clare and Tony very quickly manifests itself in the lovely accommodation they provide. Spacious, spotless, beautufully and comfortably furnished and with the kitchen and bathroom areas fitted out with all the accoutrements of home readily to hand, your stay is off to just the start you would ever have wished for. A glance out of the kitchen and sitting room windows onto the narrow cobbled street below gives you a flavour of what you can expect to find once you venture out to discover Prague. A glance out of the dining room window and you'll look out over the iconic Charles Bridge. With the Vltava river flowing under its numerous arches, the sculptured statues lining its parapet walls, the fortifying towers at either end of the bridge and the stunning backdrop of the Prague skyline bristling with ornate spires, domed basilicas and other architectural finery too numerous to mention, it's difficult to argue with those of the opinion that Prague is the most beautiful capital city in Europe. The only downside to having this view so readily at your disposal is the amount of time you might find yourself spending leaning at an open window just gazing out over it. When you've finished looking at it, get out onto the bridge and go where it leads you; it's all of three minutes walk from the apartment. There is a very useful informative pack available at the apartment. Compiled by Clare, it provides helpful tips aimed at enhancing your stay such as where to shop for food, how to use the trams, places to visit and places to dine out, amongst many other things. If you don't want to take my word for all this there's only one thing to do; go and find out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
Estuvimos una semana en Praga con nuestras dos hijas y escogimos este apartamento con ciertas dudas ya que las fotos no eran muy buenas, pero acertamos, las fotos no demuestran en absoluto la realidad del apartamento. Es un precioso apartamento con las mejores vistas de la ciudad, muy limpio y con un trato excelente por su propietaria (gracias Clare). El apartamento tienen todo lo que puedas necesitar y está en el centro de Praga, con las mejores vistas del puente Carlos. Nuestra estancia fue perfecta gracias a este apartamento y a las atenciones de Clare.Sin duda para repetir en nuestra proxima estancia en Praga.

Encantadora experiencia (lovely experience)
La experiencia ha sido muy agradable, la casa sorprende porque tiene mas de lo que ofrece. Un total y cuidado equipamiento y por encima de todo la amabilidad de Claire, que te hace sentirte como invitado en su casa, superando las expectativas generadas por sus amables escritos. La información ofrecida sobre monumentos, restaurantes y tiendas es muy exhaustiva, y en los casos que seguimos sus indicaciones no nos arrepentimos en absoluto. La casa es realmente encantadora, situada en uno de los mejores sitios de Praga, la posibilidad de desayunar viendo el Puente Carlos justificaría el viaje, además es realmente confortable, con dos habitaciones independientes, un salón con cómodos sofás y una habitación con mesas y sillas. La cocina esta muy bien equipada y permite en caso de necesidad realizar una cena, o una comida si es preciso. El baño es suficiente y ventilado. La situación como ya he dicho es excelente y permite recorrer todo Praga a pie, aunque las paradas de metro y tranvía están muy cercanas. A pesar de ser céntrica está situada en una calle tranquila y no hay ruido nocturno lo que permite dormir sin dificultad, la cercanía de jardines y de zonas de paseo es un atractivo añadido. Hemos quedado encantados y esperamos poder volver con nuestros hijos.
Amazing apartment with an amazing view on the city of Prague
Having found this pearl in a quiet square in Prague is a complete relief. The apartment is very authentic and therefore deserves its title as "Most Romantic". From the back window you can see the nearby Charles Bridge, leading you, as on a perfect carpet, directly to the old town. And life animation starts at the beginning of this beautiful bridge.
This apartment was beautiful in every way!
My partner and I stayed at this apartment for a week in Prague. We could not have chosen a more ideal location for our first time in this magnificent city. The iconic Charles Bridge was literally outside your windows as was the Prague skyline with all its beautiful towers and spires. We could never tire of that view and spent many evenings gazing at it all with a glass of wine watching the sun set. The apartment was more spacious than we expected and nicely renovated, The bathroom was large and fully modernized as was the kitchen...I loved the dormer window in the kitchen! The apartment is housed in a building from the 1580's so that only further enhanced our experience as really feeling a part of the Mala Strana neighbourhood...from the medieval entryway door and lock to the original stairs up to the apartment. When you step out of the building you are right in the midst of one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city. Charles bridge is literally less than a five minute walk from the door step and Prague castle is a 15 minute walk up through wonderful winding cobblestone streets and medieval buildings. There is all kinds of wonderful shopping right there as well as parks and the river. We rarely took the public transportation because the apartment's ideal location made both sides of the river easily accessible by foot. Clare, the hostess, also made sure that you were comfortable in every way possible and her suggestions for places to eat, cultural venues, and sights were extremely handy and worthwhile. Clare was also extremely helpful in arranging a taxi from the airport to the apartment and on the day of our departure she arranged a taxi to the train station. I don't think we could have chosen a more perfect spot for our Prague visit and we will definitely stay here again when we return in the future. The apartment truly made you feel like you were living the Prague life :-)
Best view, central location and welcoming apartment
This apartment was perfect for a romantic getaway. The view of Charles' Bridge is this apartment's best feature, however it is the attention to detail and inclusion of appliances that will make you feel at home. The owner genuinely cares about your comfort and povides you with all the information you need to enjoy your stay in Prague. The apartment is in a very centraI location and I wish we had planned a longer stay here.

A hidden treasure, perfectly situated, felt at home immediately.
There could not be a better-located apartment in Prague. Stepping inside the front door it felt as if one is living in Prague, instead of just visiting. Over breakfast we watched the Charles Bridge come alive with stallholders and visitors alike, yet the location is superbly quiet and peaceful. Within minutes you can walk to all the main sites and there are many great restaurants and cafes nearby, with great suggestions in the very informative Information Booklet. After all our sightseeing it was wonderful to have parks and riverside walks and plenty of places to rest, right at hand. The apartment itself is extremely well fitted, comfy sofas and chairs, an excellent kitchen, and a great selection of DVDs. Two very comfortable bedrooms with more than enough space and privacy for two couples, so unlike many apartments, which claim this but don’t deliver. Will be very happy to recommend this apartment to friends as it more than lives up to the description on the website.

Fantastic apartment in beautiful Prague
We were 3; myself, husband and young adult daughter. We loved Prague and our apartment, which was ideally located and overlooked the Charles bridge. The view from the window at night couldn't be bettered. From here Prague was very accessible by foot. The inauspicious entrance door and the 3 or 4 flights of stairs belied the charm of the apartment. It was well appointed, roomy and very comfortable - ideal for 2 couples as it had 2 double bedrooms and separate living and dining areas plus of course a well equipped kitchen. Restaurants and bars were close by but the area was quiet and had a village feel about it. Our host Clare was very accommodating, charming and helpful. We would love to go back.
I like this place! Quite, nice, very good location, very friendly owner
English Lake District
Romantic city breaks are wasted on the young
We’re a couple of retired romantics living in a country market town on the
edge of English Lake District, in contrast we enjoy an occasional city visit,
attempting to find accommodation with character, tasting another life,
international style hotels or souless modern city centre apartments don’t
deliver but the wonderfully personal and perfectly placed home-from-home
we found here certainly does. The house with its anonymous door straight
off the square has a quiet, friendly presence, the climb to the apartment up
the historic stairs hardly prepared us for the breathtaking view of Charles
Bridge. We arrived after midnight and the subtly illuminated bridge still
pulsed with life and would welcome us back after our various forays around
this fascinating and varied city. Despite being a few steps from one of the
busiest tourist sites in Europe the square is remarkably quiet and the
apartment is above it all with a self contained confidence probably
emanating from being here for so long.
We were lucky with beautiful warm Spring weather so we could enjoy the
tree blossom and seemingly endless walks discovering gardens and parks,
river walks, apart from the more obvious architectural delights, therefore
the big comfy sofas proved invaluable for elevating aching feet and easing
cricks in the neck (you do a lot of looking up in Prague). After relaxing the
restaurants and bars are right on the doorstep or just another short walk
away - thanks for all the “insider” knowledge in the extensive and personal
reviews of restaurants inside the copious notes available in the apartment -
not just a bundle of glossy flyers. On the one occasion we had done too
much during the day the kitchen was more than adequate.
Thank you, Clare, for making this wonderful apartment available - and
thank you also, in this overhyped world, for the straight forward and honest
representation on the web site.
Hope we can return to savour the Mala Strana atmosphere again...
Delightful appartment in best location in Prague
The appartment has a real charm, that the photos do not really capture. It is extremely well laid out, so that there is complete privacy for 2 couples in 2 double bedrooms. The sitting room is very comfortable and has beautiful views over the rooftops towards the castle, and the dining room looks directly out onto the Charles Bridge. The decor is simple and very tasteful, and it is very light and bright.
The owner is very warm and friendly, and nothing is too much trouble.
I think the location is the best in Prague, as it is the oldest and most beautiful part of the city, and yet lacks the crowds of tourists found in the main square. There is a great little wine bar across the road that serves cheese and meat platters with good local wines, and a lovely brasserie 5 minutes away, serving the best steak frites!
I wouldn't stay anywhere else..

Prague's Perfect Hidden Gem
We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Prague at this lovely apartment. The Mala Strana location was absolutely perfect, a quiet street but only minutes way from Charles Bridge and all of the amazing sights. An extensive selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants were also located only minutes away, some almost right outside the door. The historic apartment itself was immaculate and cozy. Just what we needed! It had everything you could want or need to make your stay very comfortable. We ate breakfast at the apartment (there are a variety
of stores nearby to purchase fruit, bread, cheese, pastries, etc). Clare (owner) was extremely helpful with everything. She answered questions we had before we arrived promptly and everything was exactly as she said it would be. We
really appreciated the airport transfers. Clare had put together a selection of information (guide books, maps, etc.) about Prague which was very helpful. We were made to feel very welcome and she added a lovely personal touch to our experience. We would definitely recommend this apartment and,
in fact, have already recommended it to several friends. A memorable experience!"

Wonderful, scenic family apartment
We feel so fortunate to have found this apartment in Prague. The owner could
not have been more gracious and helpful. The flat itself was perfect for our
family of 4, very comfortable with an incredible view of the Charles Bridge.
Because Prague is such a busy place, we really enjoyed the quiet square where
the apartment is located, particularly because it is also just a minute's walk to
the bridge and has wonderful access to all the major sites.
I don't think you could find a better place or a better host than Clare.
Christmas & New Year in Mala Strana
We loved every minute of staying in this beautiful old apartment, and will hopefully come back next year with family.
Very comfortably furnished but not fussy or overdone. It was great having a separate dining room and lounge, and with the bedrooms at opposite ends you can stay up watching DVDs or whatever in the lounge without disturbing those that want peace and quiet in the dining room/back bedroom. There are other apartments available in the area, but none in such a prime location, which made it very much value for money. One of our party got a better view of the New Year's Eve fireworks on the river from the dining room windows than we managed on the Charles Bridge.
Clare's welcome was lovely. A good choice of DVDs for when we just wanted to slob out for a while. Everything is within easy walking distance from the apartment and we sampled several of Clare's recommendations (Clare provides a stack of useful information). Great shops right on your doorstep - nicer and more art boutique-ish than most of the tourist places in the Old Town. Plenty of places to eat and drink in a very short walking distance, including a non-smoking cafe. Prague is a brilliant city wherever you stay, but the apartment and Clare's friendliness really made it a special holiday for us.
Home away from home, but with a better view!
Charming apartment, clean, well-equipped, comfortable, quiet, private, romantic but family-friendly, and perfectly located. We could literally have thrown a stone and hit the Charles Bridge. The view of the lighted bridge was especially lovely at night. It was great having a big kitchen, a library of DVDs to watch,laundry facilities, and a comfy living room. The owners made us feel so welcome. They were friendly, warm, and helpful. Five-star service at such a low rate is rare indeed.

"Location, Location and more!"
“If you are visiting Prague you would be mad not to stay here. We are loathe to rave about it too much for fear of it becoming so popular that it is not available next time we want to stay.
It is in the perfect location. Just off the end of Charles Bridge in a quiet street, on the 3rd floor of a lovely building in what is
undoubtedly the better part of Prague with its cobbled streets and historic buildings. Away from the crowds that you find in the more touristy areas yet we didn’t need to use any public transport during our 8 day visit as everything was easily reached on foot – the best way to see this beautiful city.
The only transport we used was for transfer from/to the airport and these were arranged for us by the owner of the apartment, very efficient and completely hassle free!
The photographs give an honest picture of the apartment and the views from the windows. It is so comfortable with modern fittings throughout.
We will definitely visit Prague again and we will definitely use this apartment for our stay. We can’t wait to return.”
