Local prices on Hotel for Senior tourist

I am planning a trip hopefully this year. From experience I like staying away from tourist traps and taking public transportation in for sight seeing.
Prefer quite neighborhood,
Can you suggest a hotel 3-4 star away from tourist area, but with very close transportation either tram or Bus.
My early plans are for old town and the cathedral.

i am probably now considered a senior tourist (65 next month) and have been visiting Prague since the mid 90's.I usually stay in the Dejvicka area which is a bit away from the main tourist area, but castle area is walkable from there and the old town an easy tram or metro ride away.
hotels I often stay in and really like .

This used to be an Army officers hotel, a good 3 star hotel that offers big rooms ,they are a bit spartan but nice ,clean and warm in the winter.they also serve an very good breakfast.. Tram stop is only 40 yards away and entrance to the metro about 80 yards away.

this is a very good 4 star hotel which has had a complete refurbishment over the last few years,rooms vary in size but have excellent facilities, one of the best breakfast in any hotel in the city,tram stop 50 yards away and metro entrance at the tram stop.

This is another hotel in the area i have used a lot.

I stopped using it as their prices went up quite a bit and the standards did not go up with them.If you get a decent price for rooms i would consider them again but have just felt that the housekeeping and general quality of fixtures and fittings are not good enough for what they have asked me to pay in recent years, but i would consider them if the price was right.

BTW if you are over 65 you can get free transport , just down load the Litacka app on your phone and look for the passes. if you are over 70 all you need is your passport to hand and you can travel on trams ,buses and metro within the city.If asked to show a ticket just show your passport.

In addition to Uncle Gus’ great recommendations, we stayed in Old Town on a quiet street in Prague. Hotel Hastal (also highly recommended on this forum). What did we like about the Hotel? Well priced family-run, minutes from Old Town Square & the River. Complimentary all-day coffee. Complimentary wine in their garden. Rooms are large and pleasant, and include air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi. “Homey hotel,” excellent buffet breakfast included and many wonderful restaurants nearby. We also used their car service to the airport. We would stay there again.

Hello,

Here is a hotel at $38/night. Walk in shower and some space in the bedroom.

This is in a gentrifying neighborhood. Great restaurants at non-tourist prices. One of which is The Farm, a farm to table place with really good food prepared in interesting ways. Cafe Letka is a coffee shop with small dishes that will make ask, "Why can't we do this at home?"

If I recall correctly Tram 26 takes into the old town. Easy to get to from Train (tram 91 or 96 at midnight) and Plane terminals via airport bus 900 to tram 91 at midnight). I give you midnight as that is what time it is in Prague as of right now.

Nearby is the park that overlooks the old town. This park stretches all the way to the castle. In this Letenske neighborhood (Prague7?) is the Technical Museum. It has an excellent bicycle collection. Nice assortment of cars and big collection Motorcycles, including a small special area for Harley's.

I'm not sure Apartment Amandment would qualify as a 3-4 star lodging, but we spent a week quite near there on our Prague visit and really liked the neighborhood and easy tram transportation - also grocery store on the corner. And we ate at The Farm and loved it!

All great choices. I'll chip in with a recommendation for the Residence Standard www.standard.cz. On the riverside next to the Naplavka quay. Tram 3 takes you to Wenceslas Square, tram 17 to the Old Town and Holesovice, tram 20 takes you to Malostranska where you switch to the 22 for the castle. You've also got the Podskali public transport river ferry opposite your front door (cheapest river cruise in the city) which you can use with your travel pass.
