Best way to find a basic room/flat in Prague?


in Prague, Czechia by @mappleton | 6yr  | 16 comments

Have been stalking craigslist for weeks. Quite a few properties posted. But after sending 20 inquiries have 0 replies. Beginning to wonder if itโ€™s a city that requires on-the-ground apartment hunting. Can anyone whoโ€™s been through Prague before clue me in?

Will be there from April 10th until July. Need a basic, short-term, central room rental. Nothing fancy. Will be working from a co-working space. Under 9000 CZK seems reasonable from what Iโ€™ve seen.

P.S. If anyone else is Prague-bound this summer and room hunting, leave a note! Definitely up for sharing a place with other nomads. Or just hanging out / having co-working sessions.

Hello all :slight_smile: I donโ€™t know if it will be helpful but I found an apartment on flatio.com for my living in Prague since April 17.

I hope it will be OK, do you have any references or experiences with Flatio?

Flatio seems a bit overpriced, similar to Airbnb for monthly rentals. I found way better prices looking at Real Estate Brokers websites.

Iโ€™m also looking for insights on where locals look for apartments, if thereโ€™s anyone out there with advice :slight_smile:

You can also hang out on #nomadsโ€™ #prague channel, or exchange with other nomads and locals on Facebook Groups http://on.fb.me/1D0E9eT :smile:

A vague idea for a first meetup in May is growing :smiley:

BTW, @Jakub, thanks for the links :smile:

Hi Maggie. What do you mean by this? As far as I know, you canโ€™t exchange contact info using Airbnb PMs. So what is the reason of asking hosts about discounts when you canโ€™t actually meet him/her unless youโ€™ve officially booked?

@sergeydumik - โ€œemailingโ€ was the wrong term. I meant just messaging them directly through the Airbnb platform which you can do even if you havenโ€™t booked yet.
Airbnb actually has a built-in function where hosts can offer a special price for certain guests so works pretty seamlessly within the system.

Yea airBnB is overpriced in Prague, so ~ 50% off is fair.

I never liked P-3 โ€ฆ I lived whole time in P-7 which is ideal imo. Five minutes by tram to the Old/New Town, heaps of restaurants, cafes, supermarkets. Two parks close by, cheaper rents than P1/2/5.

Also if you like night clubs - and I mean real night clubs, not the dump for tourist in P1 than most of them is in P7 as well.

Oh shoot, just missed this & found a single room rental. Would still love a coffee meet-up & chat while weโ€™re the city though! PM when youโ€™re there.
Re: other good neighbourhoods - Iโ€™ve heard Praha 3 & 7 have great local spots.

Took the suggestion @Philippe posted above of emailing AirBnb hosts directly and asking for a lower rate. Worked like a charm - found a great place in Praha 10 for 7500 CZK. Iโ€™d reccomend hunting that way. Didnโ€™t always get great responses emailing people from the czech roommate finder sites.

Also signed up to co-work out of Impact HUB (http://www.hubpraha.cz/en/) which looks like a beautiful option if anyone is looking for a workspot too.

We found by negotiating through AirBnB, targeting rooms with โ‰ˆ our night budget x2, then sending standard email. Thanks Jakub for the new websites :slight_smile: Weโ€™ll try next time.

Hi Maggie, Iโ€™m a Czech and former real estate agent from Prague.

(havenโ€™t been home for the last 5 years but I doubt something has changed :smiley: )

Forget craigslist, nobody uses it there. But definitely not a city that requires on-the-ground apartment hunting. Everyone, including their cat & dog is online :smiley:

The best bet would be here https://www.facebook.com/groups/pronajembytu/

also http://www.spolubydlici.cz/en/ or with G Translator this http://www.chcispolubydlici.cz/ & http://www.espolubydleni.cz/podnajem-spolubydlici/praha

You may be required to pay bit more as rentals are usually for 6-12 months. Own room under 9k CZK is easy, but probably not in Prague 1. Anyway the public transport in Prague is dirt cheap, reliable and fast.

We lived in Vinohrady, meters from Vinohrady Pavilon, and it was a GREAT location.

Conceerning direct messaging, you could agree on 1 night then switch to direct renting, you could get the discount trough airbnb or you could be clever and find a way to contact directly people :slight_smile: (I used to do it all the time)

Where should I set up my company as a remote worker?


by @beloruchka | 12h 11 hours ago | 7 comments

Iโ€™m looking for any recommendations for services or people others have used to get answers on the best place to set up their businesses based on their personal circumstances.

Leaning towards Singapore after a ton of research, but would really like some concrete advice before jumping in.

Appreciate it!

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 10d 9 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

June 2017: Prague or Budapest?


in Prague, Czechia by @joshua | 3yr 3 years ago | 5 comments

Hi guys!

Iโ€™m currently in Vietnam, then heading back to Portland, Oregon for a couple months.

Itโ€™s been awhile since Iโ€™ve been to Europe, and Iโ€™ve never been to Eastern Europe.

For those who have spent time in both Prague and Budapest, is there a city you prefer over the other? I realize theyโ€™re relatively close, and I can always take weekend trips to the city that I donโ€™t choose to stay in.

Thinking I will be there for at least a month. Will be working, but Iโ€™ll also take some time off. Prefer walkability. Decent internet.

Any input or opinions on this would be great! Thanks.

What do you think about Prague as a nomad spot?


in Prague, Czechia by @matousvins | 4yr 3 years ago | 4 comments

Prague ranks very high on nomadlist, but I havenโ€™t met many nomads who spent some time there. Iโ€™m working on some pieces for Czech press and Iโ€™d like to include some of your thoughts. Can you help me a bit? Why did you chose the city? Did you like living and working in Prague? Why? What do you think would help you to enjoy it more? Were there some major problems? What was your favourite spot to work from? Did you meet some other nomads?

How to find emergency decent shortish term housing in Prague?


in Prague, Czechia by @kathrynoh | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

I booked a place in Prague for a month but, 10 days in, Iโ€™ve had to get out of there. The ownerโ€™s wife abused me for the second time today so Iโ€™ve booked into a hotel.

I am a bit reluctant to use Airbnb to find another place because this one had glowing reviews! I really need something in the next day or two for 2 or 2 1/2 weeks. If anyone knows of anywhere or even has Airbnb recommendations, Iโ€™d be grateful. I would be looking at under $50 a night ideally.
