The remainder of our flight to Paris was unremarkable. Ivan's only complaint was that the attendants didn't come around with water. He discovered the water cart at the back of the plane toward the end of the flight. When you arrive at Charles DeGaul Airport in Paris, you might be tempted to think that you will be inside the airport shortly. But …
This morning we awoke to our usual tray of breakfast goodies minus the cornflakes which we had ignored every other day. We hung about in the room for a bit then headed up to the church and fortifications (Vysehrad) that are just around the corner. It seemed particularly cold as we traipsed up the hill but we were rewarded when we saw squirrels …
We have been asked by Gavin to supply more details of our meals, so will begin this by saying that it was back to omelette this morning, which made Penny very happy. The fruit of the day was bananas, which Penny considered to be at the absolutely perfect stage of ripeness, and Darren considered crunchy. Once again we were able to make ourselves a …
This morning began with a breakfast that was slighly different to other days. Scrambled eggs/omelettes were replaced with poached eggs (much to Penny's horror) but we got large slices of pannettone. It was still very good and we rolled downstairs and organised an excursion tomorrow for Kutna Hora in the country. Caught the tram in and then crossed …
This morning we awoke nice and early and enjoyed another fine breakfast (and lunch) and headed downstairs. Luckily Max was in so we got some tram tickets and he gave us some instructions of how to find our way to the museum he recommended from Wenceslas Square. We hit the ATM before heading to the tram stop and catching the number 3 trams to …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Lovely large apartments close to the Old Town Square. Love the towel heater in the bathroom, the fully stocked kitchen and the high ceilings. We don't have much of a view - we'd have to pay a lot more for that - but it's very quiet. Pasquale, the manager, and his staff, are lovely and helpful.

Historical Traveler Reviews Arcadia Residence Prague
It was our first visit to Prague, and the Hotel was totally spot on. We had booked a 2-bedroom apartment, and were travelling with 2 kids. Pasquale was very friendly, and responded to the email very efficiently. We had pre-booked the taxi, which was waiting for us at the airport.
Warmth welcome and quality of sevice
First, I was impress by the kindness of the owner, Pasquale.
He was there to greet me at the airport, took time to give me helfull information for a tourist in Prague and was concern to give the best quality of services.
My appartment was spacious, very clean and well equiped.
The breakfast included was very good, quite substantial and for all tastes.
Just 3 tram stations from Charles Bridge in a quiet area.
If I ever go back to Prague, I will certainly book at this hotel.
Arcadia Residence is the best place we ever stayed at in Prague!
After many friendly informative email's between myself and Pasquale (proprietor of Arcadia Residence) we landed earlier than expected at the airport and where greeted by a lovely lady who showed us to our transfer vehicle - a Mercedes!
Ahoy! The Arcadia Residence in Prague lives up to its name with simple pleasures and pastoral views. Arcadia's surrounding neighborhood appeals to the traveler who wants to mingle with the local color yet still have access to the live music, museums and hot nightlife attractions in Prague. Five minutes walk to the river and a few tram stops to the hustling and bustling Prague Old Town Square and business districts, Arcadia is the number one alternative for the smart traveler.
5 star treatment
We are just back from a city break in the beautiful city of Prague. This was my third visit in a year and after finding Arcadia apartments by chance on the internet, I have stayed there each time.
The apartments are run by a lovely warm and friendly Italian family. We had a two bedroom apartment this time and the decor and standard of service would compare with a 5 star hotel. The breakfast which is included in the price, is a feast, with hot and cold dishes, juice, fruit, tea, coffee, breads and more. Amazing!
We were three tram stops away from one of the main attractions -Charles Bridge. The apartmant is also within a short walk of the ancient castle in the area of Vsyehrad. It's stunning.
I won't be staying antwhere else when I ever return to Prague.
Wonderful family-run hotel
My wife and I have just returned from a five night stay at the Arcadia Residence. It is a family run hotel with a friendly atmosphere.They did everything to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, with a delicious breakfast delivered directly to your room at the time of your choice. The hotel is located in a quiet and safe part of the city right at
the foot the Vysehrad castle which is a beautiful place to take a long relaxing walks through the park and gasp at the incredible panoramic views of Prague. The city center is only a couple tram stops away. We will definitely be coming back to this hotel.
Top quality family owners
You cannot fail to enjoy a stay at the Arcadia Residence.
It is run by Pasquale Gusmano, the atmosphere is so friendly that we felt like invited guests .
The place is spotlessly clean, with the added touches of beautiful flower arrangements.
Each morning , at a time of your choosing , Pasquale's mother will deliver a superb breakfast trolley to your door.
The area ,Vyseshrad, is quiet and safe with many restaurants and bars , where you can eat economically.Just a few minutes away you can visit Vysehrad , It offers visitors one of the most beautiful urban panoramas .
Prague centre is only a few stops away on the frequent tram service.

E' un posto veramente meraviglioso, in soli 5 minuti si raggiunge il centro di Praga, la zona è tranquilla e silenziosa. La colazione servita in camera veramente buona e ricca ..soprattutto il Dolce. La famiglia che lo gestisce è stupenda e vi sapranno suggerire e aiutare in ogni momento del soggiorno. Meraviglioso luogo e gestori.
