Figuring out Where to Stay in Prague is a Good Challenge to Have!

Determining where to stay in Prague can be quite the challenge. This is simply because there are so many options dotted across the city. Prague is divided into “districts” by number, and there are lots of different districts/neighbourhoods to choose from!

To stay in the centre of the tourist attractions would be to look for hotels in Prague 1. Prague 1 includes the Old Town (Staré Mesto) and hotels in Malá Strana – also known as “Lesser Town”.

If you’re looking for the best area to stay in Prague for nightlife, then you might want to stay closer to Prague 1 or Prague 2 – but don’t overlook how hip Prague 3 can be! Ultimately, the neighbourhoods all offer visitors unique vibes, restaurants, access to public transit, and attractions.

So, if you’ve never travelled to Prague before you can now understand how it can be difficult to decipher where you should stay. This is where we come in! Below is a list of a few of the best hotels in Prague for different budgets and where they are located! Ready to go to Prague? Let’s go!
