You might think the Art Deco Imperial Hotel is too posh for you and your kind but think again. I visited it after a hard day's work wearing shabby clothes and the staff didn't bat an eyelid (such a lack of snobbishness that is typical of all Czech people that I've encountered.) On the ground floor it has a beautiful cafe/bar decorated with Art Nouveau mosaics. Treat yourself to a cocktail and enjoy the splendour of your surroundings.
A bargain of a three-star hotel in the bohemian Zizkov area of Prague, just three tram stops from the centre and walking distance from many bars and clubs. Great breakfast and always a personal welcome from the extremely friendly manager. I now always stay here when I visit Prague. The most I've paid is 30 euros a night, and for a better standard than many other budget hotels at twice the price.

Four houses - modern, neo-Classical, Baroque and neo-Renaissance - make up this elegant riverside hotel. Luxuriously appointed modern rooms, state of the art business facilities. Modern fine dining restaurant, softly lit and stylishly understated.
Great Prague Hotel in great Location Zizkov is one of my favourite parts of Prague. It's part of the city that is old but still lived in. It not just a tourist district.
The hotel has friendly helpful staff. The rooms are great. And it's easy to get to and from.
First and foremost, this hotel is in a great location in a great city. Prague is rather compact and as the name suggests, it is near Prague Castle. Everywhere of interest is reachable by foot and we didn't use any public transport.
The room we got at the hotel was spacious and got a great deal of light, whereby we got a wonderful view of the little quarter. It was lovely and peaceful at night and hard to imagine the throngs of tourists that were in the city during the day.
The room was spotless and well decorated and the young staff were willing to bend over backwards to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

We just went to Prague and wanted to stay in a nice area. We got a great deal for June at the Castle Steps Hotel.
We originally booked one of their cheapest rooms. The pictures looked great and we got free internet and breakfast. When we turned up the hotel wasn't full and they automatically upgraded us - we got a bedroom, living room and small kitchen!
Best thing was we had a small balcony overlooking a park and to say we were in the centre near the castle it was so peaceful. Wonderful.
I saw short reviews of this hotel around up in the charts for best value for money, as I like to scour for hidden gems. I was not disappointed. It is situated under the castle exactly in the centre but with great prices. The staff were excellent and very informal and relaxed but still willing to pander to your needs. we got an apartment for four people and it had all the trimmings. Wooden floors and antiques in an old building - and free breakfast to boot.

Uses all-natural products and it is ecologically conscious. Ideally situated near the castle in the historic (non-raucous) part of the city. All decked with parquet flooring and antiques, it is a must. We stayed in the Jasmine Apartment but take a look at their website or call them for advice - they have many different options.

We stayed in this hotel recently and got a great room with a small balcony looking out onto a park. It was wonderfully clean. The room was in a different building as the reception (although the same street), but this was no problem. The staff seemed to all be from the USA and were always on hand and friendly.
When we booked we did not realise how central it was - just under the castle. However, the area was surprisingly peaceful at night.
I'm recommending it to all my friends.
Very good tip how to save money for your stay in Prague - the advice is very simple: Sleep in a hostel instead of a hotel. The price for accommodation in hotels is far more expensive than in hostels and if you plan to be there just at night time, it is just a room with bed that you really need.
If you prefer to have your own bathroom there are a lot of hostels which offer rooms with private bathrooms and toilets.
Also, to save even more, look for accommodation not directly in the city centre.
Prague is one of the most beautiful European capitals. I travel here quite often for business. My last choice was Andel Hotel (four stars) which was designed by design studio Jestico + Whiles. I like the modern and clean style. I fall in love in this hotel. Opposite there is a shopping mall and good restaurants are also nearby. The services are great and they have multilingual friendly staff. They have a very fast internet connection too.
I have also stayed at Hotel Tranzit (four stars) which is situated at the airport area. You can book it just for a few hours and relax! Modern, clean and super services. I can recommend these two hotels.
Beautiful, stylish and the best hangover curing breakfast I've ever had... that could be because it included Buck's fizz in the buffet.
It's walking distance to the centre of the city but secluded enough within its diplomatic quarter to be quiet.
We stayed here last month. We were right in the centre, just next to the castle, and had lovely views over the Park and the city. The people who helped us to our room all spoke English and did everything they could to make us feel welcome.
This hotel was referenced in some article in the Guardian. It lived up to expectations. We had the Rudolf II room, which is featured on the website.
Large and spacious, with a superbly comfortable six-foot bed to help you relax after a day's walking around Prague. While not in the town centre, it is close to the castle, and plenty of restaurants nearby, if you can't face the walk back up the hill.
A glorious, seen-better-days, art nouveau masterpiece amid the tourist tat of Wenceslas Square. The gound floor area is stunning and the pavement tables are a good place to people watch over a couple of cold ones, though a bit pricy for Prague. We stayed here in 2004 and got the room for less than £70 via a Czech website, so shop around. Though the rooms are in need of refurbishing this should not detract from the general ambience, or the central location. There is a metro station within yards and you are spoilt for choice with trams, including the night service.
The fast food kiosks all over Wenceslas Square are best avoided, a charming young lady gave me change for Kc100 when I gave her a Kc500 note, when I queried this she paid up without batting an eyelid, obviously not the first fat idiot from Gateshead she'd attempted to fleece.

Take care with your property in hotel breakfast rooms and restaurants. The hotel we stayed in had a card entry system but it didn't operate during the day, you could 'buzz in' or the door was open. Nobody looked up from Reception and there were no room number checks in the breakfast rooms. While we were there two ladies had their bags stolen while they were at the buffet. The breakfast rooms were in the basement and had a secure feel but anybody could wander around and the thieves did!
A 1920's style 5 star hotel. Whilst not a super modern, plush place, it has maintained a certain old world charm and has quite possible the most gorgeous bedrooms I've stayed in yet. We went on my wife's birthday last year and the day we arrived there was a bottle of champagne for her and on the actual day of her birthday they gave us the most exquisite cake imaginable. And they're very friendly!
Panska Street - just off Wenceslas Square. If you stand on Wenceslas Square facing the old town it's on the right down one of the side streets.
A stylish hotel in a great location. It's in an historic building with a contempory interior, professional service, tasty and varied breakfasts and a cosy bar. Gwesty ffasiynol mewn lleoliad cyfleus. Adeilad hanesyddol ond un sy'n fodern tu fewn. Gwasanaeth ysblenydd, detholiad o frecwasts blasus o safon uchel a bar cartrefol.
