The location is in a quiet part of downtown and all sightseeing places are reachable by a short walk.

The Space

I strive to make the place unique:
► Perfect location – all sightseeing places are in walking distance.
► Comfortable arrival – you will get the keys at the front desk, whenever you arrive.
► My handbook – To get you started, I prepared a leaflet with detailed check in and check out instructions, transportation, contacts and local tips.
► Guidebooks – you can borrow some printed guidebooks of Prague
► Luggage storage – if you arrive before check in time, you can leave you luggage in the apartment, go sightseeing and return to your room when it is ready.

★ The Location ★

The location is in a quiet part of downtown, though all sightseeing places are reachable by a short walk (Prague Castle 10 min, Charles Bridge 5 min, National Theatre 10 min, Petrin Tower and park 1 min, funicular 3 min, Infant Jesus of Prague 2 min).

The building is located next to Petrin Hill park. Easily accessible by public transport (tram station Hellichova is 100 meters away; 15 minutes from Main train station, 45 minutes from the airport). There is a 24/7 front desk (where you get and return the keys) and the house is monitored for security (not that it would be necessary).

★ The Room★

You will be hosted in one of two private rooms (check out the other room at http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/278732 ; the main differences are the terrace and size of the bed). The kitchen, toilet and bathroom are shared with the guests from the other room.

There is a king-size double bed, two night tables and two wardrobes in the room.

The room windows are oriented into a quiet private courtyard. You can lock your room by a private key. Towels are provided.

The bathroom and toilet are separated. There is hair dryer in the bathroom.

The kitchen with full equipment (including fridge, but there is no dish washer) is available to you, given you use your own ingredients and clean up after yourselves.

Typical household equipment is available to you. This includes electricity extensions, scissors, etc.

Interaction with Guests

I'm living at my girlfriend's place now and work regular business hours. While I love meeting people from around the world, I hardly manage to meet you in person.

To make your stay as much smooth as possible I prepared a handbook – a leaflet with detailed check in and check out instructions, transportation, contacts and local tips. The handbook will be available to you after booking (I’ll send it to your e-mail).

I’m (almost) always available on the phone and reply to your messages in a timely fashion. In urgent cases the person at the front desk may help you.

Upon your arrival, you will get the keys at the front desk that operates nonstop.

The Neighborhood

It’s a perfect location to explore the city!

Getting around

Prague is famous for the high quality of public transport. The location is so convenient, that you will not need to use any transport to get to the sightseeing places – all are available in walking distance. The nearest tram station is 150 m (= 165 yd) away.

To get to your room by the public transport in 40 minutes from the airport, less than 20 from the main bus terminal (Florenc) or main train station (Hlavní Nádraží).

Standard check in time is 6pm and check out time is 10am - that's when you are supposed to enter/leave the room. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your luggage in the hall of the apartment, spend a day sightseeing and return after the check in time (similarly for check out). There is a front desk where you can pick up and return the key anytime.

Parking on street (in so called blue zones) is reserved for residents only (the car must display a permit, no short term permits are issued). As an extra service (500 CZK = 20 EUR = 30 USD per night) you can park your car by the building.

Other Things to Note

The room availability as displayed in the airbnb calendar is up-to-date and you can book immediately – Instant Booking is available only for the best listing in Prague.

Extra services available for a fee (payable in cash upon checkout or subtracted from the deposit):
► Wash machine (100 CZK = 4 EUR = 6 USD per load), includes laundry detergent. The clotheshorse and iron are available.
► Parking on the street, behind the bar, monitored by security front desk (500 CZK = 20 EUR = 30 USD per night).

I’m always glad for both positive and negative feedback.

  • Jaros place is so cozy and clean. Perfect to stay! Highly recommended.

  • Jaros place was very nice and clean. The location is great! It's close to everything we wanted to see, in the centre (at Mala strana), but still it was quiet and next to the beautiful Petrin park.
    Check-in and check-out was very smooth, and even though I never met Jaro in person, I must say that communication with him was very good.
    I would definitely stay there again!

  • We had a very great time staying at Jaro's house. It was clean and spacious and beyond our expectation. Jaro privides a very detail guide book. The bed was very comfortable! The location is really good, only few minutes waling to Karluv Most. It was an extremely short walk to the tram stop and very convenient, so we could travel around Prague really easily. I recommend staying here if you are in Prague! I would stay here again!

  • Super convenient location, a 5 minute walk to the old town. We have never met the host but the host obviously was very organized to have his hosting program run automatically in his ways.
    The flat is huge which is a plus, enough space for us, a couple who just would like see the city during the day and have a good sleep at night.

    We certainly would like recommend this place.

  • Nice and clean flat, everything worked out well, and its quite cheap compared to other flats. It's located directly near the park, you can take beautiful walks, and it's also very close to charles bridge and the old castle.

  • Jaro's place was perfect for our 5-days-stay in Prague. You have everything you need, it's clean and you can walk easily to the citycenter and all sightseeing places. We haven't met Jaro in person, but he managed everything good.
    We had a great time in Prague. Thank You!

About
My life dream came true with this apartment - I'd like to spend my life there with my family. However, I'm living at my girlfriend's place now and renting the rooms helps me with the mortgage payments. I spent the year 2010 studying in USA. Currently, I work as an IT consultant for banks. I enjoy living in the city, but I must get out to nature to relax and get new energy over the weekend. I love sports, especially skiing and sailing!
