Where to Stay in Prague

There are many choices for where to stay while you’re in Prague. A lot of people choose to be right in the center of the action in Old Town. If that’s you, just keep in mind that it’s very busy there, and can also be very noisy, depending on where you’re staying. But it’s also the easiest to get everywhere from there.

Hotel Kings Court is located right on the edge of Republic Square, and they even have a fantastic terrace where you can grab an incredible view of the square. It’s a 5-star, luxury hotel in an historical, neo-Renaissance-style building that has been very tastefully redecorated.

Hotel Golden Crown

If you want somewhere quieter and a little outside the action, we found a great little hotel in the square with the Franz Kafka rotating head. It’s still really convenient for getting around. The rooms are nice and comfortable and breakfast is included.

How to Get to Prague

International flights come into Vaclac Havel Airport (PRG). From the airport to the city, it’s a 25-minute taxi ride or 45-minute bus ride to the city center, depending on where you’re going. 

You can book a private transfer with Welcome Pickups for the same price as getting a taxi from the line, which is €27, but the advantage is that you won’t have to worry about shady taxi drivers overcharging you. The driver will meet you at arrivals and help with luggage and you . The drivers are skilled, English-speaking and will monitor your flight for delays. It’s the clear winner. Book your transfer in advance here.

The Airport Express bus is a more economical way to get to the city center. You’ll find the bus stop in the parking lot in front of Terminal 1. Tickets are 60 CZK. You can buy tickets in the terminal or from the bus driver. The express bus will take you to Praha Hlavni Nadrazi (Prague’s main bus station). From there, you can catch other modes of transport to get to your hotel. Many are within walking distance.
