Hi, we are looking for hotels in Prague near the city center and would like to spend below $150.00/night/room. I realize that due to the popularity of Prague that it's getting harder and harder to find this. Any suggestions? Thx
A few years ago we stayed at Hotel Pitrosu--translates to Three ostriches. The location was very good right at the Charles Bridge. Our room overlooked the bridge and room was very quiet at night-no street noise. The hotel is simple and rooms plain but comfortable with decent bed--king I think. The breakfast (included) was wonderful with anything you could want from a large buffet and excellent coffee. Easy walk to everything. As I said our stay was a few years ago and according to my notes we paid in USD slightly under $500 for 3 nights.
A group of us are travelling to Prague from London on a booking with British Airways using their holiday finder. We have booked a 4 star hotel close to the old town for two nights and return flights for £150 per person. Obviously the flights aspect would be of no use to you however you can book just a hotel via their site. It appears that they have some good discounts available to them and not knowing your dates I checked for a weekend in mid September and there was availability at a number of hotels in your price range.
Lisa - we recently stayed in Prague. We arrived ahead of our Rick Steves Best of Eastern Europe tour and stayed at the Big Boot B&B which we loved. We could walk over the Charles Bridge to old town. If you don't mind a bit of a walk this would be a great option. Our old town tour hotel was the Hotel Metamorphis. We really enjoyed this hotel. I hope this helps.
If anybody posts their own experiences of hotels here then be sure to mention if they have a "marriage bed". That's the big bed with two single mattresses and two separate quilts. It's just that some people don't seem to like them and it can affect your hotel choice. For me it's Casa-Marcello, great hotel, historic, chic, romantic, nice quiet area.
We stayed in the lovely Penzion Attractive, which is located right on the Vltava with a grand view of the Charles Bridge out front. It's a ten-minute walk to the bridge and the Old Town Square. Rooms and apartments go for for noticeably less than $150. And yes, book well ahead if you can.
Thank you all. I'll be checking out all of these suggestions.
Does it have to be a hotel? If not, check out the apartments offered by Prague Stays.
Maximilian Hotel. My family of 4 were there last Christmas. The hotel was great. It's maybe a 5 minute walk from Old Town square and near the Jewish Quarter. We had a room overlooking the Church of St. Castelus which was a nice view. The breakfast was very good and the staff was excellent. They have an honor bar in the large comfortable lobby and board games to be checked out which came in handy for us on Christmas Day. There are two parts to the small hotel with some of the rooms toward the back that don't have a view. So, decide which you prefer. Also, they offer a goldfish in a tank that you can request for your room (no charge) that was fun. Highly recommend.
I also recommend nearby restaurant U Cerveneho Kola. Very authentic and good.
6 years ago we contacted Lida Janska from RS book and she got us a new and clean apartment at a reasonable price. We were a family of 4.
have a look at booking .com. you can search using their map and prices will come up a you move. thee is a huge range od accommodation in Prague at all prices. I stay in the Dejvicka area of the city when I am there , not city centre but Prague has a great transports system that is cheap and very efficient
Hotel Residence Agnes is fabulous! Rates vary, according to the time of year and dates available.
WE loved the Hotel Metamorphis this past March! The staff was great, and the location was central in the Old Town. The breakfast was incredible . However, there is no elevator, and there are lots of steps, but we considered that part of the old world charm.
My advice is skip the hotels and go with Air Bnb. We rented a great studio apartment steps from Charles Bridge which was beautifully renovated and equipped. Despite being in the heart of Old Town it was super quiet and very secure.
