We had an apartment, two bedrooms, with a living room, walk in closet, full kitchen, balcony, entry foyer, and a bath with separate toilet room. The place was huge....and would have been a nice apartment to LIVE in, much less stay a few days.
The tram stops right in front of the hotel and you can buy full day tram/bus/subway tickets (one ticket covers all 3) from the front desk. Passable breakfast, and right on the river. We awoke Saturday morning to a farmers market/flea market along the river right outside our door.....and it was a great market! On Sunday, we woke to another market, of authors who were selling the books they had written.
Decent restaurants within a block or so, with bars and such in the same block. Had a very good Chinese meal about a block and a half away. Tesco supermarket is about a block from the hotel as well, if you prefer to cook in the apartment.
We liked it....it was a good choice.

... The place is clean, comfortable, and convenient to every where we wanted to go. We would definitely recommend it if you stay in Prague-- https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2995668 We started the day looking for lunch, feeling energized and thinking we could power through the exhaustion of jet lag. However, after having a heavy lunch with $1.50 half liters of beer, the jet lag got the best of us and we decided to take a nap. 2.5 hours later, we were ready for dinner....you ...
... city. We did stop in the middle for home made lemonade with whisky which helped refresh, but we were pretty hot and sweaty by the time we got back. However we didn't have much turn around time before we were off on the Undeground Bunker tour. The bunker was built in the 70's to house 2000 people at the hight of the cold war. It was naturally creepy and claustrophobic but our guide was hilarious and kept calling us ...
... an attachment for my mini iPad (my family bought me for Mother's Day and birthday), so I can access my SD card from my camera (thank you Maree for giving me the idea). We kept asking direction to the old town square knowing once we found it we would know how to get where we want to go. After passing the same corner twice we asked directions yet again and finally headed off in the right direction.
Success, we found the square! As it was heading on to 3:00pm we definitely ...
... and a shrine to two men who burnt them selves alive in 1969 to protest against the Soviet invasion and communism. Apparently this bought heaps of attention to what was going on in Prague at the time but nothing changed so they lost there lives for no real reason which is sad. We then went to Mala Strana other wise known as Little Quater or the old old town. We found the main square, Malostranske Nam, which would have to be one of our favourite places ...
... surfer we had hosted. It was the opening of theatre season and we stumbled upon a free show. We watched as dancers threw their limbs around the street that was now their stage to the beat of the music. Prague at night is an enchanting place. The mixture of shadow and lights make the fancy architecture show its true colours. The royal style lamp posts send rays into the night and create shimmering streaks on the slow moving river. It was a nice catch ...
