Finding a cheap hotel in Prague isn't always easy. But with a little flexibility your efforts can easily pay-off. Your reward? Cheap rates.
Best of all, you don't have to settle for the suburbs or a 30 minute metro ride to Old Town.
Here are a few selected cheap hotels in Prague that won't cost you a fortune in rates or metro tickets.
A discount hotel in Prague is generally just out of the historical city center. But each of these has good public transportation so you can get to the main Prague attractions in a few minutes.
You can find some wonderful, small family owned places with real ambiance and great service too. It's certainly nice, when a family member or even an owner checks you into your room personally.
The City Bell Hotel Prague proves that good accommodation can be close to the main attractions but far enough away from tourist crowds for peace and quiet.
The City Bell is in the lovely Prague neighborhood of Vinohrady. This is a popular area amongst locals for wonderful apartments and some of the best restaurants.
You can also walk to Wenceslas Square from here or use the metro station nearby to get around.
Of course, you get the benefit of a great price and pleasant family atmosphere too. And, the rooms are plenty comfortable.
Just because it costs less doesn't mean you have to forfeit comfort and style. That's what we love about some of the small hotels in Prague.
Tip: This hotel also has cheap apartments and family rooms that sleep up to 5 persons.
The Capri has wonderfully pleasant and bright rooms and their prices are second to none. They actually have a "Best Price Guarantee."
The hotel offers some fantastic last minute deals as well.
The hotel itself is a bit further from the historic center. The neighborhood is called Holešovice which is a quick tram ride from Old Town.
We like this area of the city too for its parks, museums and the very likeable, Letna Beer Gardennearby.
This cheap hotel in Prague is small and friendly - only 18 rooms. Each offers all you'll need with all the basic amenities like internet access and satellite TV.
They also have a great breakfast included in the price. The one drawback may be that's there's no elevator. But there are only three floors so there aren't many stairs.
Tip: Visit nearby Letna Park for incredible views over Prague. The late afternoon view is especailly beautiful.
The Hotel Gloria Prague is a bit larger with 44 rooms, but it still has a quiet homey feel to it. It's well located in the always-interesting area of Zizkov - not far from Wenceslas Square and the main train station.
The rooms don't scream cheap hotel in Prague but just the opposite. They are modern with big comfy beds and nice clean tiled bathrooms.
Some rooms are a bit small, but how much time do you really need to spend inside. After all, the sights are a short tram ride away. You can be shopping on Wenceslas Square in a few short minutes and Old Town is a short walk from there.
Each room is equipped with minibar, cable TV and breakfast is included. The hotel has free internet access too. Who says a cheap hotel in Prague has to be cheap in taste?
We recommend the on site restaurant Sklepeni that serves a variety of cuisines. The Gloria also offers 24 hour reception.
Tip: For a different tourist experience, head to nearby Vítkov Memorial. Check out the views from the roof terrace and the history inside. It's well worth it.
The Sofia comes highly recommended partly because of its great location. It's in the popular residential neighborhood of Vinohrady.
The hotel is not far from Wenceslas Square and is on a quiet, tree-lined street. It's also very close to a metro station and a number of trams.
So, from the hotel you can get to all the main Prague attractions rather quickly.
The hotel is newly renovated and offers very nice, comfortable rooms. With only 19 rooms this cheap hotel in Prague has lots of amenities including TV/SAT, direct dial phone, hair dryer, safe and tea and coffee making facilities free of charge.
Tip: You might catch a seasonal market near the Sofia on the nearby square. Also, you might consider a quick trip to Vyšehrad Castle from here.
