The apartment was very nice and comfortable. The presence of all the “additional utilities” such as given and washing machine was very appreciated.
The apartment is situated in the very center of Prague, a few hundreds of meters from the main square (old town square).
The only negative aspect was the sound from the next door apartment, which is also used as B&B accommodation. The sound isolation is not the best, but I never had problems of any kind even in that regard.
I would highly recommend it for couples and single person staying.
1.) Noise= every day noise! Street noise, construction, hammering drilling about every day there was noise.
2.) Smell= The stinky smell of the outside hall of trash and cigarettes mixed with the restaurant below.
3.) Furnishings= The furnishings are very outdated and dirty need updating. The flooring is in very bad shape super scuffed up so bad you cant even tell if its clean or dirty!
4.) Dirty= When I moved in the floor was dirty, kitchen counter tops dirty caked in white powder, grease all around the stove top, shower had thick grime built up that took me a hour to clean.
5.) Not family friendly= the bottom floor of the apartment building is a hotel like hostel tenants come and go and leave trash are dirty and loud. Had to call the cops one night for noise after hours and neighbors not friendly.
6.) Landlord= He was trying to get me to pay for his apartment repairs not caused by me. This was all brought to my attention a couple weeks before I moved out how convenient! Landlord sending me many messages borderline harassment. Daniel mentioned money and looking forward to going back to work soon I am assuming it is the lack of funds he has. Overall Daniel is a poor Landlord too worried about money and does not care about his tenants!
2.) Cost of rent at the time during the pandemic was low but not anymore its pretty much doubled and overpriced now.
3.) Stable internet
I moved in early February (during covid pandemic) everything was nice and quiet as expected just some traffic noise as the living room and bedroom windows are facing the street. The room is on the 3rd floor so the very cold winter wasn't too bad heaters worked. The windows in the apartment are about as old as the building 100 years old and very poor insolation. When I first moved in about half of the windows were not close all the way letting in below freezing temperatures I was trying to figure out why the apartment was not warming up and found the reason. One of the windows had a handle missing creating a hole letting the freezing air pour in I contacted the landlord to have it repaired he sent a handy man to fix it no problem but am wondering how this was overlooked and not fixed before I moved in.
There are issues with this apartment and the location but the biggest issue I had was the NOISE so much noise! At first when I moved in it was quiet due to it being February no tourists and a pandemic but once the weather started to warm up and tourists poured back in there seemed to be noise every night. About 10 days after moving in I was woken up at 7:30 am with loud drilling and hammering which sounded like right above me. The drilling was so bad the walls were shaking vibrating this went on for a month! When I called my landlord asking if he knew there was going to be construction he denied everything which I find to be a lie as he had to of been given a noticed about construction in the building were he owns a apartment.
The construction was so loud couldn't even hear the tv and forced me out of my own home with my two 4 year old kids it was unbearable and keep in mind this is dead winter freezing out. The landlord could care less and was very annoyed with my complaints even got angry at me arguing with me on the phone absolutely awful experience. The street right in front of the apartment was being paved for weeks would wake up to the smell of asphalt and loud machinery right outside my window. I had strangers coming inside the apartment building knocking on my door asking to talk to me about a apartment for auction next door to me and others ringing my intercom very annoying. One person wasn't even wearing a mask and was asking me to open the door this was back when covid was very bad.
Overall a poor experience I do not recommend Daniel as a Landlord or this apartment. I do not recommend living in Prague 1 old town area it is dirty, loud and smells.
Thanks Daniel for you availability and support.
Communication went smoothly.
The flat was sparkling clean and well equipped. Bed is comfortable and internet connection is fast and stable.
Incoming people need to know only;
The house is actually in another house. But the other door is closed. Cleaning supplies in common room. The first door of this apartment is steel, but the second door is like a room door. It doesn't look very safe. You can lock it, but if you forget, your door can be opened without a key. You should definitely lock the key and leave it on.
There is no dishwasher and I think the kitchen equipment is not enough. The pots are too big or too small. There is one very large blade for cutting.
Attention for the heating system! When you first enter the common area, there is a thermostat there. If the other house turns off the temperature, you will be cold. The boiler is in your home and your boiler makes noise when the next room takes a shower. You can hear this very comfortably. Because there are 2 houses in the house.
You can find clean towels and sheets in the common room, but Daniel has already put it inside the house.
I witnessed the street noise as I was working from home. Because it is a luxury location and a lot of luxury cars are loud.
There is a child in your neighbor's house making noise to you. You can hear the noises because the house is old.
The photos of the apartment are old. It is the same but needs to be pulled again recently. Many things are old.
Accommodation with incredible location and great atmosphere. Thanks for this lovely month Daniel!
I recommend it 100%.
