Prague offers an extensive range of accommodation options. From the styled boutique and cosy romantic hotels nestled in the historic town quarter to luxurious international chain hotels, budget hostels, hostels and pensions. There are over 300 hotels in Prague city centre, and most are of a very high standard and more than 900 hotels in the whole city.
Although the strength of the Czech crown continues to make the high life in the Czech capital less attainable than it once was, increased competition has led to many noticeable improvements in the city’s hotels. However, still, accommodation in Prague will probably be the most expensive item on your itinerary. The notoriously erratic Prague service remains a catch, of course, but many respected operations have slashed room rates while simultaneously improving decor.
Prague is busy all year round so it is best to arrange accommodation in Prague before you depart.
If you are travelling around Christmas, Easter and July or August, it is best to book well ahead. When looking for accommodation, you should check both the price and the distance from the city centre. Sometimes it is better to find accommodation further from the centre because, compared to other world cities, Prague is quite small and public transport here is very effective. But check different hotel offers, and you may find a great deal in the centre too. If you plan to stay in private accommodation, it is advised to view the property before handing over any money. The number of stars frequently does not correspond with international standards because sometimes the owners class their businesses themselves. Nearly all hotels set prices depending on the season. Obviously, prices will be highest during peak times (up to 20% higher in summer than during the low season, and up to 50% higher during Easter and Christmas Holidays).
