Seeking apartment recommendation and day trip advice in Prague

We are two couples in our sixties planning a visit to Prague at the end of April. We would like to rent a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in Old Town or relatively near there. I have found lots of two bedroom, one bathroom apartments but not so many with two bathrooms. Each couple would like their own room and shower/bath. Budget would be no more than about 225 USD per night. Can anyone recommend a place? We are also considering a day trip to Cesky Krumlov. If you have done it as a day trip what are your recommendations? Should we do it on our own on the bus or use one of the day trip tour services? Or is time and distance not feasible for such a short visit? Thanks for your input.

I have just left Prague and now in Budapest. I don't have a recommendation on a 2 bedroom apartment as we stayed at the Marriott in Old Town but visited a lovely hotel in the Castle District and it was translated to the Big Boot. I will stay there the next time as it was lovely and had a room that was like a 2 bedroom. But no cooking facilities but they have breakfast. Wonderful rates for such a lovely place in a quiet yet charming part of the city. And the family who runs it is very special.

We did a side trip to Chesky and you might want to stay an evening. We had a guide from our AMA waterways river cruise and it was helpful but not necessary if you like to do your own research. I loved Chesky.

Cesky K. Is much better as an overnight trip. That way you are there after the day trippers are gone. The Dovark Hotel use to have a 2 bedroom suite. I would use someone like Bean Shuttle for the trip. If you are coming from or going to Vienna or Budapest then it's an excellent nights stop between the two.

You may have difficulty finding an apartment in old town with 2 bathrooms, but you may be able to find two separate one bedroom apartments in the same building and still be within your budget. At least it's something to look at. The apartment I stayed in (July 2014) in old town was under $60/night but it was a studio. I think they do have one bedrooms also. Gets very good reviews and I was very happy there. Excellent location a couple of streets over from the main square and 5 min walk to the Charles bridge.

this is a good website for finding apartments in Prague so worth having a look.
I am a regular visitor to Prague , just got back 2 weeks ago from a trip.

Personally I think Cesky Krumlov is a long day trip but get an early start and it is possible.
loads of other options for day trips. Kutna Hora, Tabor,Karlstejn(well really a half day for that).Malda Bolelsav,Melnik ,Karlovy vary, Ceske Budejovice ,Beroun , Benesov,Podebrady,Plzen all which are easy day trips from Prague. Terezin concentration camp is only an hour away by bus and the little village of Lidice destroyed after the Heydrich assassination less than 30 minutes by bus from the Dejvicka area of Prague.well worth a short visit but read up on the history before you go it is really sad.
Most if not all these places can be done under your own steam and if you need help just ask.
I will be back in Prague in early April to celebrate my 60th birthday.
