Great apartment...loads of space. Great location...in new town so not too touristy yet very short stroll to old town and Charles bridge. Lift to top floor. Another apartment was made available for us to leave our bags on day of check out...very good service including airport pick up and meet and greet at apartment
Location is excellent with most attractions within walking distance. Rooms were clean and air-conditioning worked well. The taxi at the station was comforting. Bathrooms clean and spacious. Kitchen utensils were adequate and clean. The market is close and had all we would need. What would have made it perfect would have been a few essentials like tea, sugar,salt coffee on hand for refreshments. Had to go the local minimart for these. Overall a great experience and would certainly recommend highly.
This was our first visit to Prague and selected this apartment based on its location, size, price, and the complimentary taxi pickup from the airport.
Upon arrival at the apartment, we were met by the greeter (Maros) outside who gave us a brief overview of the nearest grocery store, cash changing location, the Old Town and Wenceslas Square. The apartment is situated in close proximity to all, with the Old Town square being the furthest away (10 mins walk maybe). We were then shown around the apartment and the greeter arranged a return taxi to the airport (which was waiting for us outside the door at the agreed time-which was nice as it had just started snowing).
We were a family of 4 (wife and myself, along with two grown boys) and found the apartment spacious with large beds (and addt'l beds/couches if necessary). We also liked that it had the 1.5 half baths (with one having the shower in it). It is located on 2 floors with the kitchen and living area downstairs and the 2 bedrooms and full bath located upstairs. There is a spiral staircase connecting the two floors.
We had one instance where we needed to get in touch with the owner and emailed Brian. Even though it was right before Christmas, Brian promptly responded and then followed up the next day. This was most appreciated.
We felt that this apartment was situated in a very good location, near to the Christmas markets at Wenceslas Square and the Old Town. We spent most of our time around the Old Town area which was beautiful both during the day and especially at night. We didn't feel the Wenceslas Square was all that exciting, just a bunch of shops along the street.
We hope to return to Prague in the future, and wouldn't hesitate to stay at the King Wenceslas apartments again.
We recently stayed at this apartment (although the booking says Wenceslas 5).
It was our first visit to Prague so the complimentary transfer from the airport was appreciated. We were met at the apartment and facilities, services and signposting to necessary amenities were helpfully explained to us. A problem with the WiFi was addressed quickly.
The apartment is exactly as depicted in the photographs and was warm, comfortable, well equipped and centrally placed for Wenceslas Square and the Old Town. There is a huge Tesco in the next street, a currency exchange a few doors away along with an excellent Chinese restaurant and a mini mart under the apartments. The apartment is on the 6th floor reached through nondescript, unmarked heavy doors from the street and then a small cobbled area leading to the apartment entrance. There is a useful small lift. The entrance looks rather neglected but this is a residential block in a city street and the apartment itself overlooks offices in a quadrangle area without traffic which makes it very quiet and peaceful.
We found the apartment excellent in every respect and very spacious and well equipped. The two king size beds are huge and the bedding struggles to cover it at times. The pillows were small and flat which didn't make for comfortable sleeping.
The greeter helpfully arranged a taxi transfer back to the airport (this is chargeable obviously)
but unfortunately, despite waiting 45 mins for it in the cold, it failed to arrive. Naturally no fault
of the owners but as the keys have to be left in the apartment on leaving, it was a bitterly cold
wait on the street. We were very fortunate to be able to flag down a taxi who agreed to take us for a reasonable price (taxis can be mercenary in pricing there!).
Because this apartment and the arrangements are so excellent in virtually every respect, we have marked it accordingly. However there is an issue which concerned us and is easily addressed. Being on the 6th floor and the bedrooms being in the attic reached by a rather tricky wooden spiral staircase, we were concerned that there were no smoke detectors or fire prevention/advice of any kind in the apartment. And this block does not have an external fire escape. Because the bedroom windows are situated in the ceiling it would be impossible to escape this area so an early warning smoke detector in the hallway is essential. It is a no smoking apartment but there was often a strong smell of tobacco smoke on the landings.
I understand this isn't a mandatory requirement in lettings there (as it is in the UK), but for us, it was a major safety consideration and hope the owners take the suggestion seriously.
However, overall an excellent apartment and very helpful owners.

We spent a few days searching for an apartment in Prague on the internet and we're delighted with our choice. It was perfect for my husband , myself and our 2 adult children. Location was central to the all the sightseeing spots in Prague. Chris was very helpful & welcoming on arrival and Brian from 'Escape to Prague' was excellent in his response to our booking which was very reassuring when booking over the web. We loved our stay in Prague & look forward to visiting again sometime and we would definitely stay in this apartment again.
