We know it can be tricky finding places to stay when travelling so we wanted to share with you our favourite places.
In Prague we really loved the apartment we stayed in and wanted to recommend it to you. We aren’t being paid for this! We just want to share a good find.
Apartment details: A 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms (1 with shower, 1 with bath) and open plan living/kitchen/dining area. There is also a double air bed available.
Location: Prague 5 is a huge area and we have heard it’s a popular place for families to live in. The apartment is on bus route 123 and the stop is towards the end of the line (stop name ‘Pruchova’). The building is in front of a large woods and is very peaceful. Definitely feels like a retreat away from the busy city.
Price: From £40 a night we think Chris’s apartment was reasonable. We were able to negotiate as we stayed for just over a month.
Neighbours: Lots of families with children. Everyone we met seemed very friendly and we almost never heard people when we were in the flat. Good soundproofing.
Transport links: It takes 3 minutes to walk from the apartment building to the bus stop. Bus number 123 takes you all the way to Andel on weekdays (a 15 minute bus ride) and on weekends you get off at Kavalirka (a 10 minute bus ride) and change on to any of the trams there to get to Andel or the city. The bus comes around every 10 minutes on weekdays and we thought it was very convenient.
Outdoor space: There is a balcony with table and chairs. It’s a lovely place to sit in the sun. The communal garden is amazing! There is a hard court, a sand pit with toys, slide, see-saw, blackboard, climbing frame, table and chairs and a swing. We spent lots of time chilling out in the garden – it is on a hill so you have a nice view of the city. My favourite place was sitting in the swing in the garden!
Things in the flat: The apartment was one of the most well-equipped we have been in – particularly in the kitchen. There was all the expected cutlery and crockery but there is also a kettle (hoorah!), cheese grater, sharp knives, tea towels, coffee percolator.
Internet: Really good. We asked Chris before we booked about the speed and reliability of the internet and we were pleased.
Kids stuff: Chris had left a cupboard full of toys, jigsaw puzzles, colours and books. He also left us a Wii with a few kids games – perfect for our 8-year-old and visiting friends.
Communication: Anytime there were any issues we were able to email Chris and he would reply asap. We also had his number but never needed to call.
Local amenities: There is a little convenience shop about 5 minutes from the apartment. It is open until 8pm in the week. There is also a tennis club nearby (15 minute walk) which has a good restaurant with a mini zoo and play area with trampoline.
Summary: We were really happy in this apartment and we think it’s a great place to stay so you can enjoy Prague but also escape from the busy-ness. If you want to book Chris’s place or take a closer look then you can book on Airbnb.
