On the door, there are two names: Left : Dana Petho, on the right: Cesak(ovi).

Now, you are in a small room with 3 doors: Right_= WC, in a front: your neighbours, on the left: a picture of a painting= our- your door.
For this door, use the last key, with nothing on it.
Before you enter the flat, on the wall on you left side, there is a DANA electricity box:
Jus pull up all the buttons - to get light in the flat.
If there is no light in the bathroom, you forgot one or two buttons.

Other Things to Note
On wednesdays, in the street Na Valentynce, there is place called Na Valentynce , and they have free Country Music concert, dinner is served until 9PM. This place is a really typical place with no tourists.
Take of your shoes at the entrance (There are slippers available in the cupboard), please no smoking, no animals.
This was a pretty solid place. Dana is a good host, she is attentive with out being intrusive and seems very professional. She responded quickly when I had an issue. The accommodations are good, it feels very authentic Czech. Although the ad mentions it, I failed to realize the toilet is shared with the neighbors but you have your own shower.
I stayed in this apartment for six happy weeks while I was working temporarily in Prague. Dana's description of her flat on here is very accurate. I felt very comfortable and at home. The area is, as Dana says, quite lively and Bohemian, with many lively night spots, as well as a great shopping mall complete with Tesco, Marks and Spencer etc. Also however, a few minutes on a tram will take you to most of the major tourist attractions.
The apartment is actually really quite spacious, and very homely, with many paintings on the wall, which are all by Dana's husband and her friends. There is no wi-fi, but just about every pub, restaurant, coffee shop etc in Prague offers good free wi-fi connections these days, so for people on holiday it's not a big problem. Also Dana is always available via phone and email should any little problems arise, and she also gives great advice about local off the beaten track places to go for a nice meal or evening out, where you can get more of a feel of the real Prague, instead of just seeing the normal touristy places.
I would definitely stay in this apartment again. Thank you Dana.
