Hi, thanks for viewing. The apartment is in a leafy Art Nouveau quarter. Light and airy, with a fully equipped kitchen and a bespoke oak bed, it is ideal for relaxation away from the buzzing city centre. About the area: nearby you will find architectural gems such as Šaloun Villa. Close by is Krymska street, the heart of hipster Prague, with its quirky shops and cafes. Connectivity: tram n. 22, stop Ruska, will take you to metro station Namesti Miru and directly to Prague Castle.
The apartment is on the 4th floor and can be accessed via a lift which you alight between 3rd and 4th floor. The flat has two spacious rooms, each with pleasant views outside.
The bedroom has gorgeous views of the roofs of villas with leafy gardens - an area where many Czech writers and artists lived in the first half of the 20th century. The bedroom has a bespoke double oak bed with a good quality mattress. There is an antique walnut wardrobe, a bookshelf, a table with a chair, a nightstand and a lamp. Original parquet flooring. Bedding: quality sheets from the Czech textile company Veba.
The kitchen has a nice view too; towards a leafy inner courtyard, typical of the period when the house was build (early 1900s).
The kitchen has an induction hob, a microwave, and a fridge/freezer. There are plates, cups, and pots for you to use if you like to cook a meal. Feel free to make yourself a good coffee in the French press too.
The kitchen has a bespoke sofa which can be easily converted into a double bed, 180cm in length. It accommodates 2 people and offers additional sleeping space.
There is a bath in the bathroom with a shower over a bath. The bathroom and hallway have original Art Nouveau tiles on the floor. Toilet is separate from the bathroom, with a small utility room in between.
Zugang für Gäste
PARKING: off street parking available for free in front of the house. There are no blue zones in this area (blue zones are almost everywhere in the Prague city centre - meaning nobody except residents can park there). We are lucky not to have blue zones in Vrsovice! But it can take time to find a parking place in Vrsovice.
