For our time in Prague we opted to stay in an apartment because we wanted to be able to cook some of our own meals, have access to a washing machine and have more space than we usually get in a hotel room. We chose an Airbnb apartment that was located on Letenska, which is just a few minutes’ walk from Malostranska metro station on the Green Line (A).
We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again. The apartment was very big compared to other Airbnb places that we’ve stayed at, and was equipped with everything we needed.
The apartment was quite colorful and tastefully decorated. It had a double bed with book shelves either side of it that were filled with mainly interesting books, including some travel guides. There was a two-seater sofa, a table with two chairs, TV and kitchen. The apartment was on the first floor and looked out onto the street. Trams pass along here, but they didn’t both us at all, as there is pretty good double glazing installed.
The kitchen was spacious and even had a dishwasher. There was also a large fridge, 4-ring hob, oven, kettle, pots and pans, cutlery and other essentials. There was also an iron and ironing board in the apartment.
The hall was very wide and long, and this is where the large wardrobe was located. It had plenty of clothes hangers and plenty of shelf space.
The bathroom had a bath with shower. Water pressure was good and the shower worked well.
When you’re traveling for months, a washing machine is something that you really appreciate. It’s a real hassle having to find a launderette in a new city, so it was great being able to wash and iron our clothes in the apartment. There wasn’t a tumble dryer in the apartment, but our clothes dried quickly in the bathroom, as there was a large towel warmer there.
There was a separate toilet, with plenty of spare toilet tissue.
Wifi speed was ok when I tested it, but seemed quite slow at times when we used it, especially uploading videos. It wasn’t a major hassle though.
The location was great for us. As mentioned above, it was on Letenska, which is just a few minutes’ walk from Malostranska metro station on the Green Line (A). It was also only a few minutes’ walk from the two veggie restaurants we ate at, LoVeg & Loving Hut. See Vegetarian & Vegan Prague.
This apartment cost £98 ($150) for three nights in March, so just $50 per night.
