best area to stay for 3 nights-Prague? and hotel recommendations? 4* under $250/night August. thanks, Elaine
The Stare Mesto, or Prague 1, is where the Old Town Square is located with fast access to most attractions.
The Julius Hotel and Cosmopolitan Hotel are fine. Apartments Pushkin has roomier apartments on a quiet street, Husova, going back to the Middle Ages. The Old Town Square and Parizka Apartments have terraces overlooking Old Town Square.
The Hotel Residence Agnes in Prague’s old town is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The best customer service, cozy rooms, excellent breakfast and in a quiet part of old town but walking distance to all the sights and great restaurants.
Green Garland. August is High Season.: https://www.uzv.cz/room-rates-services/
Short Walk to: Charles Bridge 0.5 km, Old Town Square,/Clock 350 m, Prague Castle 1.5 km, theaters and concert halls
No lift. Good continental breakfast (more than a bun and coffee).
thanks. Hotel Agnes reviews are amazing! Done!
We have booked really cool Apts through Prague Suites. Most are in or near old town or the Jewish Cemetery. We trained in from Berlin and were met by staff at the station and driven to our apt. Very fun. Felt like locals.
We have stayed at Hotel Anna in Vinohrady twice for a week each time. Great location. Just a quick metro or tram ride into the tourist areas but some very nice local restaurants.
Has anyone ever stayed at the Hotel Hastal, Green Garland pension, or Unitas Hotel? Anna Hotel looks good but must be a ways from the center and Old Town as price is half the cost. First time traveler to Prague so not familiar with things yet.
As previously said, the Anna is a nice place but you have to be prepared to use public transport or taxis to get there and back. Hastal and Unitas are very similar i.e. same 4 star standard of rooms, a few minutes walk away from the very centre of the city but Unitas just edges it for me because of the history of the building although Hastal edges it IF you can get a front facing room because of the view of the church in the adjacent square.
As previously said, the Anna is a nice place but you have to be prepared to use public transport or taxis to get there and back.
We just hop on the metro or the tram. Very quick to get to tourist areas and just as quick to get away to the relative peace of Vinohrady. We prefer to be able to buy reasonably priced dinner at a local restaurant.
