Prague is one of the most popular destinations in Europe for tourists looking for a city break. Of the 20 million tourists that head to Czechia every year, 8 million visit the country’s capital. With so many people, it’s easy to understand that these visitors have different tastes, needs, and budgets, meaning businesses in Prague have created a range of hotels to cater for them all.
From the cheap and cheerful to the luxury, and from ultra-modern to communist-inspired decor, there really is something for everyone.
Sir Toby’s Hostel
Hostels aren’t for everyone, some people hate the idea of sharing a room with others, while some enjoy the sense of community and relish the opportunity to meet others from around the world.
Sir Toby’s Hostel is a great option as it has a very rustic feel that is very different to many hostels. The iron beds and dark wood furniture will make you feel like you’re in a period drama.
There are even private rooms available, giving you a good balance of communal living and personal space.
You can never go wrong with a Hilton because you know what you’re getting regardless of where you stay. While they don’t always have the same charm and character as a locally run establishment, there’s a lot to be said for arriving in a foreign country and at least knowing you’ll be sleeping on a comfy bed that night.
Hilton Prague looks very modern from the outside with its glass facade. Inside, the decor is grand, with white marble lining the vast lobby area. Rooms are modern, clean and pack in all the facilities you expect.
The rooftop terrace gives you fantastic views over the city, while the onsite spa, pool and fitness suite will leave you feeling refreshed. There are five bars and restaurants in the hotel, giving you a mix of dining options including plenty of local specialities.
The Hilton Prague is also home to the Casino Atrium, the venue for the Prague round of the PokerStars European Poker Tour. The casino has a wide selection of table games, including roulette, blackjack and pontoon. Players can also enjoy a range of slots games and a large poker room where Texas Hold’em is played.
For people who are interested in the history and architecture of 20th century Eastern Europe, Hotel International is a great way to live it. From the outside, it’s concrete exterior has hints of Brutalist and Stalinist architecture but with its own unique twist. It shares many similar features to the Seven Sisters in Moscow and the Palace of Culture in Warsaw, which you’ll notice immediately if you’ve visited those cities.
Inside, the hotel has been well maintained but the decor remains faithful to the original styling it had when it first opened in 1956. This means high ceilings, lots of marble, and dark woods. Some of the rooms feel more modern though, following a recent refurbishment program.
Although the decor may feel a little Soviet, the facilities are modern with free WiFi, modern bathrooms and plenty of plug sockets in each room.
Four Seasons Hotel Prague
For a more upmarket feel, the five-star Four Seasons Hotel Prague offers spectacular views over the river from the heart of the Old Town. From one of the hotel’s river-view rooms, you can admire the red roofs and famous landmarks like Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge without having to navigate through an onslaught of other tourists.
Guests can even take a private tour on the river in the hotel’s own private boat. This can be booked at reception. Alternatively, you can sample delicious Japanese-fusion food from the rooftop restaurant. There’s also a swimming pool and spa to leave you feeling refreshed.
The Four Seasons Hotel Prague has 10 different classes of room, starting at the entry-level Modern King Room to the most luxurious Baroque King Suite. The latter includes a separate dressing room, two bathrooms, and marble flooring.
If you rent a car and are planning to park your car at the Four Seasons, you’ll need to have deep pockets since it starts at €55 per day.
