Where will you stay? / Kde budete bydlet?

Home Sweet Home appartmentsI always think about when our whole family goes back to Czech (4 people) – where will we stay? My mom’s and my dad’s place is too small so we would have to rent out a flat. I looked around and found a very reasonable priced agency called Home Sweet Home, which offers not only apartments all over the Czech Republic but also cottages for rent :)).
Expats can use a short-term accommodations as well as long term ones. I know that some retired Czechs and Slovaks live a half a year in the US and the other half in Czech so this would be perfect for them.
What I find very enticing is that you can rent flats in Prague, located in a dead city centre like the Wenceslas Square, or even Old Town Square!! Of course, those places are a bit more pricey but it would be cool to experience it for one or two nights….
Anyways, I thought I would mention it to you since most of us have to deal with these kind of things when we go back.
CZ: Take si nekdy rikate, kde byste bydleli, kdyby cela vase rodina jela navstivit Cechy? Hodne z nas, bud uz rodice/pribuzne v Cechach nema a kdyz ma, tak jejich byt je pro ctyr-plus clennou rodinu proste maly. Home Sweet Home je realtni agentura, ktera nabizi cenove dosti vyhodne kratkodobe i dlouhodobe pronajmy po celych Cechach, vcetne centra Prahy jako je Vaclavske namesti nebo Staromak!! Pravda, byty v centru jsou trosku drazsi, ale stalo by to za to, zaplatit si jednu az dve noci a z okna se divat primo na kostel Svateho Mikulase :).
Jestlize o takovych vecech premyslite, urcite se na jejich webovky mrknete – stoji to za to.

    Wow, you’ve become very American. Even our friends’ smallest Czech flats have enough room when we come to visit – that’s half the fun, sort of like SvP all over again. I can’t imagine not staying with family or friends wherever we decide to visit.

    Tani, I can imagine the pandemonium if 6 people stayed in a tiny Czech one or two bedroom place. I usually go by myself, so I sleep in the kids’ room/guest room/storage (my parents have 2 bedroom flat) but if I had a husband and two kids with me, I doubt we would fit comfortably. I guess it’s ok for a day or two, kids can crash on a couch, adults in the 2nd bedroom if there is one but week or more would be annoying for everyone. I am all for the idea of renting a place and I have heard of this agency and similar ones as well. It works not just in Prague but also other major cities (Paris anyone? )

    Exactly, it is good for a couple of days but then it’s not fun anymore. Especially for my husband who is not used to such conditions and likes his privacy.

    We’ve had really good luck when travelling to Prague using AirBNB and Wimdu. Both sites have properties put up by owners (and sometimes management companies) that are really reasonably priced. A few years back, we stayed just steps from Tyn, for around $60/night for a one-bedroom. Rates get better for longer stays, so if you’re looking for multiple weeks/months, you can probably find a steal, especially if you’re not determined to stay right in the touristy spots.

    My dad taught me the old Czech saying that fish and guests smell after 3 days. In some cases, 2! 🙂
