Boatels (Czech Botel) or so-called floating hotels, can be a good alternative for accommodation in Prague. Usually featuring small but cosy, and very fancy spruced-up cabins, a boatel can be the perfect choice for those searching for something unusual, or for a romantic atmosphere. Boat hotels also offer some great views on the river, and easy access to all the sights in the heart of the city. All boatels in Prague are well equipped, and some also offer parking facilities.
