The location is in a quiet part of downtown and all sightseeing places are reachable by a short walk.
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 the 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.
It’s a perfect location to explore the city!
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.
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.
No smoking in the building.
Take off your shoes before entering the apartment (you can put your shoes onto the bench by the entrance door) – that’s a habit in this part of Europe.
Respect the basic and mostly unspoken rules of living together.
Great place and GREAT location. Though I didn't get to meet Jaro, he sent detailed instructions that made check in/out a breeze. Also left meticulous notes for his recommendations regarding restaurants, sights, transport, and his own "walking tours" through the city. Coffee, tea, utensils, shampoo, washer and laundry detergent, towels, guide books...pretty much anything you would need was available. Loved Prague, definitely will be back, and hoping Jaro's place will have availability then. Thanks Jaro!
The flat was perfect!!!! The living room was so large and all the rooms are super clean! In addition, the location is perfect. It is in a quiet neighborhood but near many bus stops. THIS IS THE BEST AIRBNB I had ever!! Thank you Jaro!
Jaro ensured all arrangements were in place before my my arrival. The apartment was very comfortable and the location is phenomenal! Highly recommended!
The place was great, a fantastic price for all the amenities. The room was comfortably sized, the area wasn't at all noisy and the location was great for sightseeing. The internet is a bit shoddy(it has a low range, so it doesn't really work in the bedrooms) and the bathroom doesn't have a proper shower, but a bathtub with a shower nozzle. But, these are the only problems to be found, and they were entirely miniscule during my stay. Overall, great place for a great price.
Although we hadn't met Jaro personally we could manage everything easily by communicating via mail and sms. The flat is really great and huge. My boyfreind and I stayed in the room with terrace, my brother slept in the other room. The livingroom is very big, we even did some gymnastics there! But the best thing about the flat is it's location. The park nearby is so nice. And, yes, it's true, interesting places are really closed: downtown, Castle, Charles-bridge...
It was our first time in Prague. People are so nice and helpful. We had just positive experience there. I really recommend everyone to visit the city at least once in his/her life!
Jaro's place is huge, warm, clean and above all safe. Had an amazing time at his place. Although we have not met Jaro personally, he made is super easy to pick up the keys and drop them off. Check in was easier than in the hotel...
Me and my friends stayed 2 nights in Jaros appartment and we really liked it. His appartment is big and comfortable and very central to the city. You can walk everywhere or take the Tram which is nearby the apparment.
The bathroom and kitchen are also big but you have to consider that you have to share the bathroom and kitchen with other guests who might be messy and untidy. That was the only problem during our stay in Prague.
Although we didn't met Jaro in person he sent us an instruction and guidebook. I would definetly recommend Jaros appartment!

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!
