Search the best hotels in Prague
‘The golden city of one hundred spires’ is captivatingly beautiful and well preserved and, since the dismantling of the Iron Curtain, it has become one of Europe’s top tourist destinations. Unlike many other European cities, the historic centre escaped significant bomb damage during the Second World War, leaving its Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings intact. The majority of the best places to stay in Prague are found here, whether you're looking for a hotel or something a bit more unique.
In 1992 Prague was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and today is a magnet for more than four million international visitors every year. Kafka wasn’t alone in his discovery that, "Prague never lets you go". With its untouched architecture and stunning setting: on the banks of the Vltava River with views up to the majestic castle, it looks like a film set and often is. Indeed many of the best places to stay in Prague boast either fabulous views or a simply stunning exterior.
Where to Stay in Prague - which neighbourhood?
The centre of Prague is compact, bounded on three sides by a wide loop of the river. There are several districts we consider to be the best places to stay in Prague, all packed with attractions, and all within walking distance.
- At its heart is Staré Mesto, the lively Old Town, rich in architecture from different periods and restaurants, bars and nightclubs. This is where you’ll find the famous Astronomical Clock, the mural covered Storch Building and the Gothic Týn Church. If this sounds like the best place for you to stay in Prague here are our recommendations for the 10 Best Hotels in Staré Mesto.
- In the northern part, Josefov is the old Jewish quarter, whilst to the south is Nové Mesto, the New Town, redeveloped in the 19th century. This is where you’ll find Wenceslas Square and the National Museum. And the 6 Best Hotels in Nové Mesto.
- Reached by a series of bridges, most famously the one built in the 14th century by Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia, Charles IV, Malá Strana, the Little Quarter, was established in the 13th century and populated by Germans. We recommend one of the 10 Best Hotels in Malá Strana.
- Then up a steep hill to the north is Hradčany, which was founded in the 9th century and is the oldest district and home to Prague Castle. Here we recommend staying at one of our Guru's 3 Best Hotel in Hradčany.
What not to Miss
- Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the world - according to the Guinness Book of Records - and extremely beautiful and atmospheric. It also affords wonderful views of the rest of the city from the lookout tower of St. Vitus Cathedral.
- Wenceslas Square.
- The National Museum.
- The Astronomical Clock.
- The mural covered Storch Building.
- The Gothic Týn Church.
- The National Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Decorative Arts and the Prague City Gallery are worth visiting if you’re interested in art and design.
- Prague also has museums to Mozart, Mucha, Kafka, Karel Zeman, a beer museum and a Jewish Museum.
Prague is a great city for walking around, although almost all the streets and pavements are cobbled, so comfortable shoes are essential. The majority of our selection of the best places to stay in Prague are easily accessible on foot from all of the major attractions. Public transport is excellent and cheap, and you can use trams or buses to get to parts of the city not served by the Metro. Trams are a particularly good way to see the sights.

For a city centre apartment
- If you'd prefer the flexibility and independence of renting an apartment, check out the selection with our online partner, Booking.com.
- Václav Havel Airport Prague is the closest airport, just 20kms north of the city. You can catch a bus, special airport bus or train into town from the airport. Or arrive in Prague via its very well connected main station, probably enjoying some spectacular views of the mountains on the way.
- If you want to hire a car we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars.
- Prague is busiest in the summer, and magical at Christmas. If you’re looking for a quieter period with pleasant weather then spring and early autumn are probably best. Prague can get very cold so if you’re not here for the Christmas markets and Christmas cheer you might find it a bit dark.
