Recommendations for Hotels in Old Town Square (Prague)

I've noticed a lot of posts lately asking about hotels in Prague, so I thought I'd toss mine into the mix. I've been to Prague several times before -- favorite city -- but always outside of the city center. I'm going back next summer and this time would really like to find a reasonably priced hotel in or near Old Town Square. By reasonable, I mean as low as possible. I'm not going to put a dollar value on this because I may dig deeper into my pocketbook than I'm expecting, so I'd like to hear all options. I'm not a luxury-class kind of person; we generally stay in hostels and/or budget hotels when in Europe, so I don't need frills of any kind, just clean, well-located and safe. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For well located you really can't beat the Three Drums. It's just around the corner ( literally ) from the astronomical clock and it's directly opposite Franz Kafka's house.

From a price point of view it's about as good as you'll get for that location. The rooms are very good, not fabulous, but good and the price reflects that.

As with all central Prague accommodation the price varies acording to when you want to stay.

Personally I would not want a room in Old Town Square. It's a bustling, tourist-riddled section of town that's better for a quick glance on foot rather than a night's sleep.

Hi Ashley-We stayed at Hotel Salvator, which was about a five minute walk away from Old Town Square on a quiet street. We really enjoyed it and would stay there again-we saved money by sharing a bathroom down the hall and we never saw anyone else on our floor so it was like having our own bathroom. Plus, they have a cozy little restaurant and the best breakfast buffet (which was free). It's in the Rick Steves Best of Europe 2007 book. Prague is awesome, have a great time!

The Metamorphis Hotel is a great hotel just off the Old Town Square in the courtyard behind the Tyn Church. I stayed there when I went on a Rick Steves tour and highly recommend it.
