Casa Italia was one of the highlights of my city trip to Prague. When me and my girlfriend arrived, we had no idea what to expect really. We booked the apartment mostly because of the kitchen, which would mean we could cook our own food instead of having to go out to eat every day. Our apartment was cozy, spacious and perhaps even more luxurious than expected for this price. The lady at the reception gave us a map of the city and tips for Prague's excellent public transport. All in all, I would definitely recommend Casa Italia to anyone wanting to visit Prague!
The best place to stay in Prague... It gives you the feeling of ancient and it is very cheep too. It is close to the center and you can get your privacy there. So for me it is not a hostel. It is like a home. I adore that place and i strongly recommend it!!!
there is no conecttion between the photos and the reality. we did not ask for money back. we just left and booked in another hotel. we must say that the woman in the resseption was very kind and did her best.
Having stayed here last year with a group of friends it felt like the best place to stay again this year, I was wrong. This year it was just me and one other friend who booked a twin one bedroom unfortunately due to our flights we arrived late and incurred a 480CZK charge for late arrival charge and city tax. We were then shown our bedroom . It was NOT a one bedroom apartment as advertised but instead it was a studio apartment. The bathroom did not have a bath as shown in many of the photos but instead had a shower with a head that was entirely useless (might as well be a hose). There were no curtains in the apartment meaning the light would wake us up a daybreak, and the beds were stiff and the covers were made for the size of a small child. When asking to more rooms we were told they were all booked for one bedrooms but they would move us as soon as possible, nothing was heard from them after. Wifi exists but kept disconnecting. no use for anything except sending/ receiving text emails. Would not go again
No free breakfast as advertised, unfinished remodeling, pipes sticking out of the walls, had to sit underneath the sink to sit on the toilet, scraped my knee on the plumbing several times, the pics online make it look nice, really run down, needs some deep cleaning, no piano in a common area as it appears, wanted to get our money back and find somewhere else but was too late and we were tired
My second visit in Casa Italia and ive been very satisfied again, just only small problem with the heater, was too high so very hot in the room. Otherwise room was clean, good breakfast even i am vegetarian the manager Katia complied. She was very nice and helpful showed me all restaurants around......... Many thanks. J.Y
Rooms were good and hotel location was within 5 minutes of the city centre. Location was good for Christmas markets with several restaurants within walking distance. However, no cleaning was done throughout our stay and the breakfast was terrible.
We stayed here for 4 nights in November and although the location was ok and in walking distance of the city centre; The room wasn't cleaned throughout our stay and we had to ask for more toilet roll. The room itself was adequate and comprised of a bed, kitchen and bathroom although we had a huge boiler in the bathroom that was noisy. The breakfast was awful, they offered us a mixture of baguettes with poor fillings. The coffee wasn't up to much either and we ended up going the Starbucks around the corner. Overall for the price we paid for the stay it was ok however if we had paid more I would be very unhappy with the facilities and service.
The location is excellent: This is under 2 minute walk from Krizikova subway station. (exit station, you will see GM Electronics on street corner. It is right next to GM Electronics although the door is small and not very obvious). It is not nice pulling luggage walking around Prague, as majority of roads are stones or pebbles, so I highly recommend staying near public transport. This stop is only 2 stations from Namesti Republiky (Republic Square), which is actually quicker to get into city centre than staying inside city centre but having to walk everywhere. There is also plenty of food here: A fruit kiosk, a breakfast cafe, a bar open till late, a few casual restaurants, all outside the metro station. This is a local area rather than tourist area, so you get to eat local. We were given an apartment in the basement. There was rubbish outside the windows, so we could not open the window and air the room; major advantage is the fact that there is a split system air conditioner inside our apartment, which is extremely rare in Prague (Eastern Europe don't do air conditioning). The apartment is clean. It also has pots and pans, plates, cutlery. The living area is very small, which really consists of a high bar table and high bar sofa seats. It is impossible to put anything or store luggage in this area. The bedroom is a lot bigger. Our room is double bed, with 2 wardrobes, and space to open our luggage. Bathroom is in the middle of the building, and being in the basement means there is no fresh air. There is a very small exhaust fan, but it is clearly insufficient, so it does get very hot and not much fresh air. The shower area is only separate by a curtain, plus the fact that the exhaust fan is not big enough means the floor is basically wet all the time. We ended up leaving the exhaust fan on 24 hours. Bathroom is also very small, just enough for turning your body around. Overall this is an excellent location for a few nights, maybe 3 nights, but anything longer would be quite messy with bathroom and lack or fresh air.
I stayed here on two different occasions during my holiday and had two different rooms. Both were clean and had all self catering utensils I needed. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, you need to let them know in advance your arrival time as they are not 24hours but they will have someone present for your arrival. TV in each room but I didn't use it, internet connections were not great but this was not a problem for me as I spent little time in the room. If you are arriving at the airport you can take local bus 100 to metro station Zlicin and transfer to the metro and get off at station Krizikova - it takes just over an hour and the bus is every 30 minutes until about 11pm. The metro line is a 2 minute walk from the metro station. The apartment is about 30 minutes walk into Prague city, 20 minutes to Florenc bus station or you can take the metro a few stops. There are a couple of bigger supermarkets near the apartment and some late night local shops. Few restaurants and bars within 5 minutes walk and reception staff will give you some suggestions and introduction cards which will get you a little discount. If you are looking for budget accommodation in Prague and don't mind staying out of the center then this place is ideal.
