My stay at the Apart hotel was a lovely experience. I was greeted by the hostess Kristina (who used to be an air hostess) with a drink and snack over which she provided me with a good scedule and map of sights to see. Up in the apartment which was clean with all the usual kitchen stuff I was impressed that there was a large jar of complimentary coffee and tea. She even did my Laundry ! Also free Wifi in the rooms . Definetly will return here and reccomend to those looking to stay. Also place is very convinently located to trams, Metro and shops and tourist attrations.

Historical Traveler Reviews Aparthotel City 5 Prague
Couldn't have been happier...
We have just returned from Prague and were so so pleased with our stay in the Aparthotel that we simply had to come on here and write a review of it!
The location of the hotel was fantastic, literally a minutes walk from the Andel metro station on the yellow line, three stops away from the city centre. The hotel is just around the corner from the Andel district, yet not close enough to have our sleep interrupted by street noise and late-night revellers. The Andel district itself was brilliant, with a large modern shopping centre and restaurants, one could've spent the entire stay there rather than travelling into central Prague.
We stayed on the first floor in a twin studio apartment for which we paid around £160 for four nights. Our room was lovely, the decor was modern and fresh and the beds were very comfortable. On arrival, we were told there was some tea and coffee in the room, and were pleasantly suprised to find that we had been provided with every type of herbal tea imaginable! Our kitchen was very well equipped, we were provided with everything we needed in order to cook a decent meal. The bathroom was lovely and clean, with a heated towel rail and fantastic power shower which was very refreshing after an exhausting days sightseeing in Prague. All in all the apartment was exceptionally clean and a pleasure to stay in.
I feel I should also mention the wonderful staff of the hotel, who, prior to our trip, called us in England to ask us what time to prepare for our arrival. Upon arriving that staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent english. We were provided with a map of Prague and lots of useful information, such as places to visit and which metro stations we would need to use to get there. While to hotel does not have a 24 hour recpeption, guests are given keys to the main door and are also provided with the mobile phone numbers of the hotel's staff in case of emergency.
I would also recommend the hotel's cafe, which provides free internet access and a whole range of well-priced drinks, the hot chocolate was lovely!
All in all we had a fantastic stay in Prague and the Aparthotel and look forward to staying there again in the future.
Lovely hotel, lovely people
We were stuck in Prague with nowhere to stay and a limited budget. Christina and her staff were amazing, the apartment we were given was huge, cheap, and Christina really went out of her way. She helped us get our car mended, drove us around town, brought us breakfast to our room, negotiated a good price for car repairs, let us store all our gear from the car in one of the staff's son's houses, took phone calls for us, translated for us, and even tried to give us a present - a huge calendar - it was unbelievable. A true find. We had stayed the first night in the hotel next door, and while it was clean and good, it simply was not a patch on this place. I've never stayed anywhere so friendly!!!
I would never usually write a review on a website. But felt the Aparthotel is the exception to the rule.
The hotel itself is immaculate, clean & well presented. The reception area is very welcoming and the staff very polite & very helpful.
The first thing we noticed that the building is fitted with a modern lift/elevator which is great after the days flight and travel.
Our room was a studio room. As you walk through the door of the room, there was a large hall area, with room staright ahead, bathroom to the left and a inbuilt wardrobe to the right.
The studio itself had a double bed, lots of draw & cupboard space (which looked new).
There was also a self contained fitted kitchen facilitys within the room which included a fridge freezer & small cooker, a kettle, microwave, free tea & coffee, along with cups, saucers, plates etc.
There was a seperate and very modern shower facilty with basin toliet, mirror etc.
It is worth noting that the building is very secure and not only do you keep your room key, but you also get a key to the main building itself, which gives you alot more freedom.
The location is great and situated only 3 minutes from a very large shopping centre which includes stores such as Tesco, C&A, Marks & Spencers and loads, loads more atleast 100 shops.
There are also 2 very modern style (glass frontage)banks and we would advise you to change your money at one as the exchange bureaus can be very costly compared.
There are also lots of bars and restaurants in the district which are really nice and very cheap and a great alternative if you want to avoid the stag & Hen parties in Prague centre itself in the evenings
From the hotel you can walk into Prague centre which is about 15 minutes or jump on a tram (which appeared to be free as nobody ever paid) so we just jumped on and off as we needed.
It is also 1 minute from the Metro (but we avoided the Metro).
All in all the ApartHotel was fantastic, the location brilliant and the staff more than willing to go that extra mile.
10 OUT OF 10 AND WE BELIEVE THIS SHOULD BE RATED ATLEAST A 4 STAR BUILDING.
Our apartment was immaculate with everything we could need. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location was very convenient, very close to a tram stop on the easy and frequent tram system. Excellent value and it's a beautiful city
Unser Appartment war makellos und es gab alles, was wir brauchten. Das Personal war freundlich und hilfsbereit und die Lage sehr günstig, ganz in der Nähe einer Straßenbahnhaltestelle. Die Straßenbahnen fahren oft und sind leicht zu benutzen. Ausgezeichnetes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis in der schönen Stadt Prag.
Great Hotel, Beautiful City
I booked this hotel as i wanted to be close to the centre and not pay to much and this was one of the cheapest deals i got, so when we arrived i was not expecting it to be great. I was wrong lovely new hotel in the perfect location. The bedroom we stayed in was on the top floor and was newly decorated we think we may have been the first people to stay there or the housekeeping staff were amazing. Loads of space small kitchenette to cook (not that we did) bathroom with lovely hot power shower probably the best self catering room i have ever stayed in. The hotel had a small bar area again looked bran new and offered a small breakfast in the mornings if we wanted it at a cost of 180 Krowns for the two of us which is about £4.50 plus it served drinks until 8pm and the beer was dead cheap as we were next door to the starpromen brewery. Great location a good twenty minute walk to Charles Bridge but just two minute walk to nearest Tram Stop which is four stops from Charles Bridge (about 10 minutes) plus next to the tram stop was the metro station which was only two stops from Wencellas Square (about 5 minutes) and these two services are really cheap two tickets were 28 Krowns about 60p and the services were fantastic we never had to wait more than ten minutes for either the tube or the tram. Be warned though they do stop running at midnight
We had booked the hotel for a surprise birthday treat for my Mom. The rooms were fabulous and they managed to group the three couples together on one floor. The most amazing thing by far though was the staff. They bent over backwards to help our stay be the best ever. When my Mom fell and hurt her ankle they rang round friends to try and get her a wheelchiar so she could still see the city (we didnt need it though). Truly lovely people. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. So close to the main attractions too.
Top quality appartments.
We were a group of five people staying at these appartments for 4 nights and we can without doubt say that this place is great. The staff were better than any we have ever come across in all the places in europe that we have stopped, they were helpful, always up for a laugh and a joke, would go out of there way to make sure you were comfy and had all that was needed.
The hotel itself has just been refurbished and is very modern and comfortable. The rooms that we had were a top floor appartment that three of us shared and a first floor studio with two people, and both were as good as each other.
The hotel isa good 15 minute walk from the centre or Wencellas square, but the metro and tram of which perform an excellent public transport system is a few yards away. (STAY OUT OF THE TAXI'S THOUGH THE FARES GO THROUGH THE ROOF).
Overall excellent and we would certainly stop there again!!!!
Shane,Karen,Martin,Siobhan and Darren.
We stayed for 7 nights at Aparthotel City 5 and it was great! Lovely old building newly and nicely decorated, apartments are spacious and very clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and location of hotel was great - near to trams and metro or approx 20 min walk into old town square area. Will be recommeding to friends going to Prague, and would definately stay there again.
A wonderful new apartment style property within walking distance of the city centre.
Having only opened 5 weeks ago, the property is entirely renovated, owner-operated and a great place to stay on a budget.
Their are single 'bedsit' style apartments, or 2 room apartments available. All are clean and pleasantly appointed and all rooms have their own kitchen. The building also contains wi-fi internet free of charge, as well as a laundry. With only a few apartments in the building, it is highly recomended!

... went in search of a supermarket so I didn't have to try and order something and them not understand me. Of course couldn't read any food labels either! So had to buy what I could identify, sushi, chips, ice cream. Even water was difficult to figure out! And they do not sell ready made salads in the supermarket only salad sandwiches and every type of bread every made which is not very helpful for me!! I did discover you can set the self checkouts to English which is great :) Ate lunch ...
... age for riders was 18. Of course, that doesn't matter when the tour guides want to sell you a product. They let everyone try out the Segway's and we agreed to think about a Segway tour for tomorrow - since we are already scheduled for a bus/walking tour this afternoon.

... of the Augarten park. I was driving the first part of today's journey and we picked up the motorway easily. The urban landscape quickly cleared as we left Vienna behind us, driving northwards into the greenery of the Austrian countryside and closer to the border with the Czech Republic. As we approached the end of Austria, the motorway narrowed to become first a national road, then a single laned carriageway, interspersed with roadworks and contra flows. A series ...
... greatest enjoyment of architecture and design was from the Art Nouveau exhibition we went to on our first day. When I, and no doubt most people think of Art Nouveau, I thought of Muncha's nymph-like women paintings with the crescent boarders and floral motifs. Art Nouveau was so much more than that, and it's philosophy is a strange mix of nietzschean existentialist ideas, freedom of form and figure, geometric forms and nature. The Muncha works ...

The most memorable part of the whole shebang actually comes from the Czech people's way of putting up with these Communist era shena****ns. As you will see from the photograph, the Stalin figure is one at the front of a group of 8 (four each side) figures representing variously the brave Russian soldiers who liberated Czechoslovakia, rural folk and no doubt brave tractor drivers of the Soviet Union. In their own inimitable style, the ...
