Where to Stay in Prague?
The different areas of Prague each have their own identity and offer something unique in the way of attractions, atmosphere and accommodation options - from cheap hotels and hostels to luxurious retreats in historic buildings.
The medieval streets and alleyways of the atmospheric Old Town are a good base for those who want to stay in the historical heart of the city. Other nearby attractions include the Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock.
The “New Town” (which was established in the 14th century) flanks the Old Town’s southern and eastern borders. It is often possible to get cheaper hotel deals here than in the Old Town, which is easily accessible. There is a good choice of restaurants, bars and hotels along Wenceslas Square and in the surrounding area. Across the river is the historic Castle Quarter which is home to the magnificent castle itself, as well as other cultural and architectural highlights including palaces and Baroque churches. There are several high-end hotels in the area. The nearby Lesser Quarter is much quieter than the Old Town and offers a number of places to stay among beautiful Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic architecture.
