We stayed at Praga Central Residence for 3 nights having to include one extra, summing up 4 nights.
When we arrived at this residence about noon, reception was apparently closed with a short letter informing to contact the owner.
We tried ringing the bell and, suddenly, appeared a winsome woman who does speak nothing English. No word!
Nevertheless, she made our check-in, showed the aparment and, finally, with a perfect mimic language, she gave us a map and "explained" the already-known Prague sightseeings. Even today I don't know her name but she was sweet.
It is not that far from downtown, but neither so near. There's a subway station (Krizikova) 10 min. walking but it has a tram stop 2 blocks (5min) from the residence.
To downtown, allow 5 minutes by subway or 10 by tram.
The neighborhood is quite "strange" at first sight. It's a typical Prague district. Altough nothing was seen or perceived, it seems to be safe. But keep your eyes specially opened at night. Prague is really safe.
There's a few option of restaurants, but there's a self-catering near - about 2 blocks.
The residence itself is huge and all-equiped. It contains 2 bathrooms. All rooms are spacious permitting to host 4 to 6 persons.
This place has nothing compared to a hotel. It is just some apartments they "rent" daily to you. We had to call the owners to pay our nights and request the extra one.
By the way, the owner neither speak English. It seems they guest many Italians, once they speak Italian very well and there are a great number of Italian channels on Cable-TV, so, if you have some Italian abilities, you will take some advantage!
Anyway, after the first night, we realized it is a good place to stay for some days!
