Kinsky is a nice and spacious apartment situated close to the Old Town. It is located in the center of Prague just 10 minutes away from the Charles Bridge and the National Theatre. Since you are already in the historical Mala Strana, you will be able sight-see and explore Prague very easily. The block of houses is surrounded by pleasant greenery and waterfront nearby, ideal for nice walks. Apartment Kinsky is very comfortable and allows you to relax after a long day walking around Prague. It is equipped with a bar table and leather sofas, all in a style of an English club. There is also a well-equipped kitchen offering everything you need (coffee maker, microwave oven, toaster, etc.) in order to prepare your favorite meals. If you prefer to go out for a meal, the best restaurants and bars in Prague are all located only a quarter of an hour from the apartment. Kinsky provides enough comfort for 5-8 people. It includes two bedrooms and a pull-out sofa bed in the living room, if necessary additional mattresses can be added. As all our other apartments, there is a high speed internet connection. Also the apartment is non-smoking with the option of smoking on the balconies. If you want a better idea of what the apartment looks like, scroll down to view the floor plan. The building is equipped with keyless lock codes, useful for booking at the last minute. Please note that the apartment is located on the fifth floor with no elevator. The name of the apartment is derived from the surname of the famous Kinsky family; one of the oldest Czech noble families memorable for making Czech architecture well known thanks to many buildings in the country. The Kinsky family is known besides other things for their courage during the Nazi occupation. Along with other noble families, they addressed a declaration to the President of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, Emil Hacha. In the letter, they claimed their Czech citizenship and rejected German citizenship, causing their subsequent persecution of the German Nazi government. The Kinsky family emigrated after the Communist overthrow in 1948. Today, some of its members have returned back to manage their property and made their significant cultural heritage accessible to the public. The apartment building is located under the Petrin hill, near the river in the area called Mala Strana. It was built in 1895 by a well-known architect, who built it for himself, explaining its good qualities. Petrin is undoubtedly the best place for those who like visiting tourist attractions as well as having a taste of nature at the same time. Just behind the building is the historical Hunger Wall, which has served to defend Prague. In 1361, the year of drought and poor harvests, the prices of bread increased severely, which left many people without enough food. In order to feed their families, the locals resorted to frequent theft, augmenting the criminal activity. King Charles IV therefore called upon the locals to build a protective wall from Petrin to the Vltava River. The construction took two years and fed many families, resolving the problem. The Prague people named the wall ?The Hunger Wall?, because its battlements resembled the teeth of the starving folks building it. At the end of the street is Kinsky Square, known especially for the T34 tank, which commemorated the liberation of Prague by the Soviets in 1944. After the Velvet Revolution in 1989 an artist David Cerny painted it pink. Actually, it was not so much of a political gesture as an attempt to capture the attention of some girl. Later a fountain was built in the original location where the tank stood, but there still a little pink part of it on the square which constantly reminds us of our history. The apartment is also near the French Quarter, only a 5 minute walk from the French Lycée. For those who plan to stay in Prague for a bit longer, will appreciate the proximity to a nearby shopping center called Novy Smíchov, which is only 2 tram stops away. The tram stop (tram line 6, 9, 12, 20, 22) is right in front of the building as well
Nice apartment in a good location Reviewed by: Regina R. recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2014 We had a really good time in Prag and the size of the apartment was also good for 8 people, of course a second bathroom would be always better. The location was perfekt. 10 minutes walk into the center.

Changement d'appartement!!! Alain S. from Pontcharra sur Turdine, ---- recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012 All was very good and the appartment was clean, clear and not far from the center. The only black point has been the change of our choice at the last time. Fourth step instead of second! We were lucky to be not too old! They have explained they had had some technics problems.We do not think it's true because the flat we chose first was occupated.

An unforgettable four days in Prague Peter L. from London, ---- recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 If I were to describe my vacation rental experience with just one word, it would be 'unforgettable'. The central location on Ujedz - close to all the main sights -, the fine decor and relaxing ambiance, as well as the excellent Chinese restaurant downstairs all contributed to four days of exquisite bliss. Thank you RenteGo!
Better than any expections! A guest from Kiev, . recommends this property.
Stayed for 24 days in February, 2012 To be honest, during over the twenty years of contacts with private agencies, I never saw such a heart and responsive people like at Rentego! This is the place where you will get more than expected and the trip will leave the best memories - guaranteed. The same about their service: the ratio of apartments level and service quality to the price is maybe the best in the Prague.

A very pleasant stay in Prague A guest from ----, ---- recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2011 I was very happy with the apartment Kinsky. It's in a very good location - right by the Legion and Charles Bridges, the Prague Castle and many others. The apartment was clean, spacious and quiet. There were many cafe's, restaurants, groceries and bottle shops in the vicinity. The only quibble I had was one bathroom - which gets a little difficult with five people.
Very nice stay in a great city. Excellent documents and advices provided by the Rentego team. We will definitely chose Rentego f Jean-Pierre T. from Morieres, ---- recommends this property.
