Tips for Choosing Prague Hotels

Consider these simple tips when searching for a Prague hotel. They may seem obvious, but they will always help you narrow your search.

  • Look for hotels in these areas: Old Town, Mala Strana (Lesser Town), Josefov (Jewish Quarter) and some parts of New Town. Most hotels in these areas will be in walking distance to all the main attractions. And, they will have good access to public transportation. Read more about central hotels in Prague.

  • Always check a hotel's location on a map. We can't stress this point enough! The last thing you want are tourist crowds outside your window. Our hotel map will give you more perspective regarding what we recommend. Or, if you need a second opinion, please contact us.
  • Read hotel reviews - your fellow travelers always give great insights. They've stayed there - so, their reviews are invaluable.
  • Seasonal rates. Hotels in Prague set their rates according to demand. And the highest demand is generally from April - October and for the major holidays.
  • Book early (or even late). Like cheap flights to Prague, hotels offer discounts for those who book far in advance. Many hotels offer a 30 day advance price that will save you money. That said, if you book or even arrive at the "last minute" you'll likely find tremendous deals. Such deals are usually found in off-season and away from the main holidays. For example, we wouldn't hesitate to arrive in March without a booking and get an excellent deal in the city center.
  • Be open-minded and flexible. This goes for picking a hotel as well as cultural awareness when traveling to Prague. Things here might not always fit your expectations.

    For example, Prague has never been known for excellent "customer service." And, some hotels in Prague are still catching up to meet Western standards and expectations. So, a bit of patience will go a long way on your visit.

Hotel Alternatives

Booking a hotel is not the only way to stay in Prague. In fact, Prague has many other businesses that offer hotel services with a twist of their own.

Our overview of Prague accommodation provides a more in-depth view of hotel alternatives. Some are small family owned places with real ambience and great service. It's certainly nice, when a family member or even an owner checks you into your room personally.

For starters you might consider a Prague Pension, Bed and Breakfast, Guesthouse, Residence or an Inn. Or, for that matter, you might consider a private vacation rental?

We're just suggesting that Prague is more than hotels.

Of course, we love the diverse selection of Prague hotels, but it's a shame when visitors overlook everything else. It's just like the main attractions. Why wear out the beaten path when there's so much more just around the corner?
