From luxury and budget to everything in between, visitors to Prague will have no problems finding the perfect place to sleep during a stay in the capital city. There are just as many types of Prague hotels as there are price ranges. You can opt for a cozy bed and breakfast or a comfy hostel. You can stay in a studio apartment or a luxurious suite with butler service – it’s up to you! Some of the most popular places to hang your hat during your holiday are located at Castle Hill, Mala Strana, and Old Town.
Castle Hill accommodations are fit for a king, while Mala Strana hotels are for those seeking some quiet. If you’re looking for hustle and bustle in a truly festive atmosphere, Old Town hotels will appeal to you. At Castle Hill (Hradcany), book a room at the exclusive 5-star Hotel Savoy or in Mala Strana try Hotel U trí pstrosu for both calm and views. And in Old Town, visit the 4-star Hotel Domus Balthasar – located just a few steps from Charles Bridge.
While these are some of the most sought after hotels and areas to lodge, there are other areas that will place you close to the action -- if that’s your wish -- or far enough away if you’re into quiet breaks.
