The streets of Prague emit a sense of magic that is felt by all who inhabit them. For both locals and quick passersby alike, hidden gems and unsuspecting beauty await at every turn. The Appia Hotel Residences is one of these gems.

Perched atop Sporkova Street directly under the Prague Castle, the Appia Hotel Residences’s outward appearance displays the same characteristics as other Art Nouveau style buildings in the city. But on the inside, warm and welcoming bilingual staff greet hundreds of weary travelers from across the world every day.

Read below to learn about the 5 reasons you should stay at Appia Hotel Residences during your next trip to Prague:

1. Prime Location

Tucked away in Prague’s charming Mala Strana neighbourhood, Appia Hotel Residences are steps from the city’s most famous attractions.

A short nine minute walk via Hradčanské Namasti, patrons can explore the centuries old Prague Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral.

In the opposite direction heading towards Old Town Square, the ominous Baroque statues of the Charles Bridge await. Via Karluv Most, the bridge is an easy 11 minute stroll on foot, or 10 minutes via bus number 192.

Other noteworthy attractions in close proximity to Appia Hotel Residences include the Museum of Alchemists and Magicians of Old Prague (1 minute walk), and the Schwarzenberg Palace (5 minute walk).

Visiting attractions further away from the hotel is also a breeze. Public transportation to places like the Národní Muzeum in Wencesclas Square, Letná Park, or Prague Zoo, are available from:

  • Malostranské Namesti (tram lines 12, 15, 20, 22, 23, 97);
  • Malostranské (Metro Line A); and
  • Bus no. 192 (to Šporkova)

2. Stylishly Modern Rooms, Suites & Apartments

When traveling throughout Europe, finding spacious accommodations is a challenge — but not at Appia Hotel Residences.

With a total of 22 modern and spacious rooms, guests can choose amongst 13 deluxe double rooms, seven suites, or two large apartments with kitchenettes.

A World of Dresses and I experienced one of their luxurious double deluxe rooms. These rooms are equipped with free high-speed Wifi, air conditioning, plush robes and slippers, and a fully-stocked minibar.

A large LCD flatscreen TV for movies enhanced the experience, but the favorite room feature was the elegant glass enclosed washroom with a rainforest shower head.


3. A Complimentary Buffet Breakfast

In addition to in-room snacks at the mini-bar, Appia Hotel Residences Prague provides guests with a comprehensive breakfast buffet in their cosy attic restaurant.

After hot showers and an hour of work, A World of Dresses and I hopped in the elevator and helped ourselves to an English style breakfast of baked beans, sausage, fried eggs, and stewed tomatoes.

A hot cappuccino and a plate of assorted pastries are the recommended finale. Therefore, sweets treats like cheesecake, crepes, and chocolate-filled croissants are in abundance.

All food and beverages are available from 7am to 10am Monday through Friday. On the weekends, the breakfast is available from 8am to 11am.

4. A Romantic Outdoor Garden

In the evenings, Appia’s picturesque outdoor garden with gazebo is the perfect spot to relax with a book or a cocktail (or both).

Steps away inside at the lobby bar, rosé champagne, whiskey gingers, and vodka tonics are available for purchase to drink under the lights of the gazebo.

During the warmer months, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the sun with a book in hand. The plush furniture with the sound of the fountain trickling in the background creates an ultra relaxing vibe.

The private garden can also be used for proposals, birthdays, and other celebrations by contacting the Appia Hotel Residences staff.

5. Extra Services Packages

Another amazing perk of being a guest at Appia Hotel Residences are the Extra Service Packages. These packages are available to guests that book online in advance of their stay.

Guests who utilise the direct booking from the hotel website will enjoy a generous 50 percent off discount on parking, a discounted hour-and-a-half sauna experience, a complimentary souvenir, and a welcome drink. Sipping champagne while enjoying early check-in made for the perfect experience.

Book Your Stay

To book your stay, visit Appia’s website directly here.

Most importantly, for those arriving from Vaclav Havel Airport or Hlavni Nadrazi Main Rail Station, direct and private transports can be arranged to and from the hotel property.

Regular check-in time is 2pm, and regular check out time is 11am daily.

  46. My word – If only I had this recommendation before I visited. I had the WORST accommodation ever. Imagine something terrible, then… Think WORSE. Makes for a funny story though now that I think back in hindsight.

    1. Alex Booze says:

      Oh no!! I’m sorry to hear that 🙁 May I ask where you stayed? Sometimes the hostels in Prague can be….sketchy at best! At least now you know of a good and affordable place when you go back! <3
