Accommodation

Accommodation in Prague is relatively expensive and good budget accommodation – such as small, family-owned hotels – is lacking. Don’t be surprised to find some hotels dating back from the Communist era but all are with up-to-date facilities. And we wish to remind you it is always best to reserve your room before you arrive in order to avoid overpriced hotel rack rates.

Low budget: hostels, B&Bs (pensions) and campsites.
Moderate: 3 star hotels; 4 star hotels with special offers or last minute deals; serviced apartments.
Expensive: 5 star and 4 star city centre boutique hotels.

When booking accommodation in Prague, on 99% of occasions (though hostels and camps might be an exception) you will be charged per room, not per person. Some hotels and especially pensions do not recognise a difference between a twin and a double, and you get two twin beds pushed together for a double. Only mid and top hotels will give you clean linen every day, but you can always ask them if you wish to have your linen changed.

Tip: Remember if you find a special deal for a 3 star or 4 star hotel and it claims to be a luxury hotel, check TripAdvisor.com before booking if you don’t want to spoil your romantic break, as hotels might be rated as a 3 star but in fact you will be sleeping backpacker-style!

Staying longer? If you are staying a bit longer a good idea is to book a conveniently located serviced apartment, which is usually cheaper than a 3 star hotel.

Tax: A 15 per cent tax may be added. Ask whether the room rate includes tax before you make a booking.

The individual rooms of the hotel differ due to an individual design and furnishing. A top tip is room 507, where the wooden attic construction creates a quite special atmosphere. In the great hall, which today serves as the hotel restaurant, performances of the-atrical plays actually used to be staged …

Riverside Hotel Prague

The 90 rooms and suites of the hotel were given a contemporary look after the comprehensive renovation of the elegant art nouveau hotel. Nevertheless, the new building harmonize with the historic ambience. The complex forms of the former windows give the rooms in the attic an idiosyncratic, almost Cubist touch.  …

Student Housing

Should you be a student, you’ll often be given a dormitory room (a ‘kolej’) which can be shared with room-mates or just be a single room. As universities do not have traditional campuses, university dormitories are spread across Prague. You will probably need to utilize public transport to get yourself …
