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.
Our top recommendation for where to stay:
* Intercontinental Prague

You really can’t go wrong with the Intercontinental Prague. It’s located right in the Old Town, within easy walking distance of all the top sights, and there’s even a rooftop restaurant with stunning views.
Hotel Kings Court Prague
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.
