A luxurious retreat minutes from Prague’s Old Town Square
Looking for a quiet apartment in the heart of Prague? It would be difficult, if not impossible, to find a more perfect place than this.
The White Swan is just a few steps away from some of Prague’s finest restaurants, and only two blocks from its historic Town Square. In a matter of minutes, you can walk to a number of attractions, including the Old New Synagogue and the Prague Astronomical Clock. History buffs should also take note of the street’s illustrious past—physicist and mathematician Christian Doppler lived here, as did painters Josef and Antonin Mánes.
Despite its central location, the apartment feels miles away from the tourist hustle, making it ideal for kicking back after a day of exploring. The moment you leave the tree-lined cobblestone street and enter the centuries-old building, you’ll feel the peace and quiet that this tucked-away location affords.
The apartment itself has been reconstructed to meet the highest standards. We have devoted three years to restoring and modernizing this unique property. The space is furnished with 18th and 19th century antiques and original works of art that lend an air of old-world charm to an otherwise contemporary interior.
The White Swan consists of two separate apartments joined by double doors, making it perfect for couples or families who are traveling together but still want some privacy. The main apartment has one bedroom; the other is a studio. Both sides have a private entrance and include a private bathroom with a tub and shower, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a European king size bed. If you need more room, the one-bedroom apartment has a custom pull-out sofa that sleeps two. We also offer a second apartment across the street that sleeps four.
This one-of-a-kind apartment is sure to book up. Reserve your dates today!
Travelling in a big group or with a large family? We can additionally accommodate you in comfort and style! We have another luxurious apartment directly across from the White Swan apartment that can comfortably accommodate and additional 4 people: http://www.flipkey.com/prague-condo-rentals/p342860/

We (4 over 65s!) stayed in The White Swan Double Luxury apartment for four nights over New Year - what an absolute joy it turned out to be. From the start everything went like clockwork - picked up by Petr at the airport, meeting Monika at the apartment and the apartment itself had absolutely everything we needed (Monika even left a laptop for our use). The apartment is very spacious with two large double bedrooms (and 6' beds) two lovely bathrooms and a large lounge and kitchen. The location of the apartment is unbeatable set in a quiet cobbled street with no through road for traffic and not much more than 5 minutes walk to Old Town Square. Many restaurants and cafes very close by, a mini market on the street corner and a brilliant Irish bar directly opposite!
We ate in some excellent restaurants and cafes all in walking distance and covered many miles visiting all the historical monuments. After a concert in the Municipal House on New Years Eve we soaked up the atmosphere in the city then spent a couple of hours in the Irish bar across the street which was wonderful - live music, friendly people - and then walked to Old Town Square for midnight fireworks and celebrations - what a crush but a great atmosphere. On New Year's Day everyone gathers on the wonderful Charles Bridge and the embankment to watch the official firework display at 6 o'clock giving families the chance to enjoy them.
We ended our four day stay with the most fantastic lunch at Cafe Savoy across the river - the food was amazing. Best to book if you plan to go there.
All together it was a brilliant trip, the apartment was superb and the city of Prague was absolutely wonderful.

The apartment looks exactly like the photos. No surprises at all. The location is perfect...a 05 min walk to the city center where you can book free walking tours and guided tours. Also very close to the Jewish Quarter. The apt Manager monika arranged for a car to meet us at the airport. Petr was our driver, very nice, speaks great English and has a large, clean sedan car. Monika met us at the apt and got us settled. The apt is very large and comfortable...it was so nice to come back after a day of touring. We ate breakfast every day at the apt and cooked our evening meals twice in the modern kitchen. Large fridge and dishwasher. The apt is located on a quiet cobblestone street and is very, very secure and safe. 3 of us were traveling together...all women...so safety was key for us. We rented both apts which was great for 3 of us. There were only 3 towels and no wash cloths so bring your own washcloths. Stackable washer and dryer so we were able to do laundry. Beds were comfy. If you like to have a "couch throw" or blanket, bring your own as there is no additional bedding provided. We planned a day trip to Cesky Krumlov and hired Petr as our driver arranged by Monika. He was with us for 12 hrs and it costs $85 pp. Very worth the money as the trains and bus system made us a little nervous do to the language. He even drove us to a large supermarket as the grocery store around the corner from the apt is more like a mini market. I woul definitely stay in this apt again. It was perfect.

We just returned from a 10 day stay in The White Swan over the Christmas holidays. We rented both the main and studio apartments and we loved the apartments and the location. We walked most everywhere we wanted to go. After walking through Mala Strana, a big tourist area, we were very glad to be staying where we were - it really is a nice, quiet area that is close to the Old Town Square and away from the tourist crowds. There is a small convenience store nearby but we did most of our grocery shopping at alberts near Namesti Republiky - about a 10 minute walk.
We were pleased with the quality of everything in the apartment. Granite countertops in the kitchens, beautiful bathrooms. They had even placed a small wooden Christmas tree on the mantle! The only thing I would have liked was another casserole dish in the kitchen - there was one casserole dish and lots of pots and pans. But that was a very small issue that we were able to deal with!
We visited the Irish pub across the street from the apartments twice and we enjoyed it much! When reading others' reviews about there being an Irish pub across the street, I was a little worried about whether it would be noisy. Not so at all! If you did not look over there and see the sign, you might not even realize there was a pub across the street.
Zdenek, the driver who drove us to and from the airport, was very prompt in picking us up at the airport and in taking us back. He does not speak English and we don't speak Czech but he had cards written out in English to show us sites on our way to the apartments. On our way back to the airport, we did not know which terminal our flight left from. He was able to quickly figure it out using his phone.
Tomas was prompt in communicating with us as we made inquiries. He also met us at the apartments when we arrived to make sure all of our questions were answered.
We highly recommend The White Swan as a place to stay. We felt very comfortable there and plan to stay there again!
Thank you very much for your kind remarks and for confirming that this apartment is in a nice quiet location. We will acquire another casserole dish based on your experience. Again, thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to the Whtie Swan again.

We rented the entire White Swan apartment from September 29-October 8, 2011. We were met at the train station by a very nice representative of the apartment. It did not take us long to get used to the luxurious nature and upscale amenities of this 2 bedroom suite. We found a grocery store, bakery, flower store, restaurants,& bars very close to the apt. We were centrally located, but not overwhelmed by the tourists in the Old Town Square. Everything was perfect, and we look forward to returning to its luxury, beauty and safety. Many thanks to Tomas Ricar and Zdenek.

My wife and I visited the White Swan for 8 days on our honeymoon. We had friendly, fast, and quality service by the property managment staff welcoming us to the apt. and tending to our requests. The apartment was filled with luxury and warmth including a romantic fireplace we used a lot. The apartment was filled with cookware and dishes. Grocery stores were within 1-5 minutes of walking. We walked everywhere as we were centrally located in the heart of Old Town. We explored the city attended cultural events and historic sites. The streets were filled with many restaurants and cafes. This is the place to be when visiting a foreign country. This apartment made traveling simple.

We stayed at this beautiful apartment while visting our son who was studying in Prague. The apartment was in the perfect location and was stunning. We rented the double apartment and out son stayed in the smaller unit. It is very roomy with a fabulous bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. We were there for american Thanksgiving and cooked a traditional meal and even enjoyed american football on the large flatscreen TV. We have done much traveling around the world, and this is one of the best apartments we have seen.

my husband & i had the fantastic experience of renting the white swan double apartment for one month! there are not enough adjectives to describe our stay in Prague! the location of the apartment was more than we could have asked for...we were able to walk to every site that was mentioned in our book top 10 Prague. the apartment is "to die for"! it's in a 14th century old building that has been completely renovated, with state of the art design, architecture & appliances. it should be featured in architectural digest! it has a totally brand new security system for the whole building, along with a safe in the master bedroom. the neighborhood was extremely exclusive & "classy"...we enjoyed the irish pub just across the street immensely! the owner was more than helpful whenever a question would arise during this past year in the "planning stages" of our trip. i would give this a 10 star rating if i could!

I spent time at this apartment between Xmas and New Year. The apartment is stunning and is funished to the very highest standards. The furniture, appliances and the decor are top quality.
The apartments location, only a few minutes walk from Old Town Square, is outstanding. It is convenient for sightseeing,restaurants and some of Prague's best hostelries.
I would highly recommend this accomodation to anyone who is looking for the best that prague has to offer
