Hotel or Pension in Prague

Are there any good places to stay near the town center for under $100.00? We will be there in early October and will have only 2 whole days to see the "must" sights.

A good hotel room in Praha 1 or Praha 2 for under $130.00 is hard to find. I've heard people say this place ( Hotel Merlin ) is OK and not too inconvenient to travel to and from. I've not tried it so I'm giving you information I can't be sure about.

There are really 3 town centers in Prague- Wenceslaus Square, the Old Town and the area around the castle. I assume you want the Old Town (although the other two are within walking distance).

I stayed at Pension U Medvidku and found it more than adequate. It lies less than a 5 minute walk from the Old Town Square. Depending on how many people you have, during your visit the cost will range from (assuming current exchange rates) about $120 to $230. I concur with the previous poster, unless you want to stay in a hostel, you won't find much in the desirable areas of Prague for less than $100.

Depending on how many people you'll be traveling with, you may consider an apartment. We found it to be a more economical option than a hotel when we looked.... We're traveling as a group of 4, and a two bedroom is 155 Euro/night. Split among the 4 of us, it's pretty cheap!

I just booked 3 nights at the Hotel U zlute boty (yellow boot) after reading every possible review. The Rick Steves tour groups stay there, and they'll give Rick Steves readers a discount of 10%, plus 5% for cash. The location is near the castle, in the area where all the embassies are located. It might not be central enough for you because it's a bit of a hike uphill from the Charles Bridge. For us, I think it will work.

I was there in July - only 2 nights. Arrived late afternoon, had one full day, and had the morning on our last day. We stayed at Penzion 44 ( It wasn't fancy and decor could best be described as institutional. But it was under $100 per night, had 2 beds, was clean, had a private bath, small fridge in the room and big breakfast (bad coffee). It was 2 minute walk to the metro, or 10 minute walk to Wenceslas Square. It worked great for us & our tight budget. We followed RS guide and toured the Jewish Quarter (Pinkus Synagogue was so moving), Castle Hill (gorgeous churches and loved the toy museum), St. Charles bridge, Old Town area (enjoyed a Jazz fest in Old Town Square) and Wenceslas Square! Between walking, the metro and the tram, it was great. We had time to linger in cafes every day.

Try Guest House lida,

I have made and canceled reservations there twice. I heard nothing but good things about Lida. The owner, Jiri, was very gracious both times I had to cancel. I am pretty sure you get a room there for under $100.

Guest House Lida is where I'm staying in October. I've never been before, but I have only read good things about them on this website and several others including TripAdvisor.

We stayed at Guesthouse Lida this past April. Very nice place, great hosts (Jiri and his brother Jan). About a ten minutes walk to the metro, and then the third stop is Wenceslaus Square.

The guesthouse is in residential area and it is quiet. You can walk to town along the river if you enjoy walking.

Breakfact was good, free internet service. Jiri picked us up at the train station when we arrived, and took us back to get our train to Munich (for a very modest fee.)
