Interaction with Guests
Even though this listing is not a full apartment, it is still much more than just a room. If you like to have your own privacy but still prefer to meet locals for a nice chat and get some insider tips on visiting the city, this place is ideal for you.
We and our flatmates like to cook and share food and drinks with each other and are always happy to have the chance to get to know our guests a bit more during a dinner or some drinks spent together in our lovely kitchen.

The street is the representative main street of upper Holesovice (Prague district) with beautiful buildings and paintings on them.
Right around the place are plenty of pubs and coffee places of different coloeur.
A Potrefena Husa restaurant at the next corner offers e.g. high quality Czech cuisine, the "Houbaře" next door offers Czech standard cuisine and according to Tripadvisor the best Pilsner in town, there are at least 2 vegetarian restaurants within 3min walking. A stylish cafe right in the house offers breakfast, cocktails and of course very good coffee. Check my AirBnB guidebook for more recommendations.
My flat mates are very hospitable and we speak Czech, Slovakian, English, German, Hungarian and Spanish. We are hosting friends very often and know to give you the right hints where to start off with your discovery of the city - should you be interested in general sightseeing or more specific subjects such as architecture and arts, opera, history, alternative scenes, or nature.

Absolutely no smoking inside, you can smoke on the balconies.
Respect rest/silent times between 10pm and 6am Sun-Thur, 1am to 8am Fri-Sat (silent times means you can of course come and go and even have diner in the kitchen, just no party and no tumble dryer in that times)
Please lock the entrance door to the flat when you are out - it is too easy to break in if it is unlocked. (fire exit is to the balcony in any case hence no danger here)
