good experiences at lower end priced hotels/pensions in Prague

Just wondering about if anyone on the forum has had nice experiences at the more modestly priced (like under 80 dollars a night) hotels in Prague. Its one thing to find what looks to be a great deal online, but nice to hear some real life experiences. Wouldn't mind staying a bit out of the way for a significant price reduction. We are thinking about being in Prague at the end of this August for three or four nights.

I visit Prague several times a year and get some good deals.Hotel Dap in Dejvicka I have stayed in many times and have had some great deals I am staying there in May. In August I am staying in the hotel Avion which is near the Nadrazi Veleslavin bus/tram/metro interchange,stayed there last summer and it was great value so have booked it again with 2 friends for this year.
Andel is a good area to stay in and loads of hotels there that will be cheaper than similar hotels in the city centre.
Look at Booking .com and see what is available in your price range.
Prague has a superb and very cheap public transport system so staying away from the centre is not a problem just make sure you are near trams or a metro station.

Try the Hotel Hastal and check it directly from their website, not booking.com where the prices will be higher. I just stayed there and I believe paid around $80 a night after the currency conversion. Prices may go up for August though. The location is not far out, but if you do end up staying in one of the outlying neighborhoods the public transportation system is easy to use.

We stayed at Hotel Petr in March, 2018. On a quiet side street on the border of Lesser Town and Smichov. Clean decent size rooms, ample breakfast in a large cheery dining room. There’s a tram stop a block away but we ended up walking everywhere even in early March.

Our favorite restaurant in Lesser Town was Cisty Stul a few block from Hotel Petr.

Rob - we always stay at Sophie's Hotel or Sophie's Hostel. It's really close to the metro station, and we actually walk to the train station, Wenceslas Square and the Old Town from there. They have both private rooms and dorm type rooms (I've never done the dorm rooms). It's clean, the front desk folks speak English, they have a small pub inside with drink deals and a free beer if you book with them directly. They also sell metro or tram tickets at their front desk and have 2 options for the most amazing breakfast - hot or continental. And, last year, I took the free walking tour they offer every morning and it was awesome - even after going to Prague for 7 years, I learned something. It is "free" but then you tip the guide if you want - 10 Euros was an awesome price for an informative and fun 2 hour tour!

A studio AirBnB rental might not be your cup of tea, but this one suited us well a few years ago (currently listed at $79/night).

An edited copy of our review: ".... The studio apartment is a comfortable size, has everything one would need (including clothes washer), and is neat and clean. The underground parking was a big plus as we had no desire to drive in Prague after arrival. Jan was courteous and professional in all booking arrangements, and met us at the apartment upon our arrival for help with access ....The location...is not in the tourist center, but the tram and Metro access is excellent....."
