A Local’s Guide to Hotels & Hostels in Prague

With more than 3,000 hotels in Prague listed on Booking.com, it’s no wonder why one of my most frequently asked questions is for hotel recommendations. In a city as popular as Prague, there is no shortage of accommodation options. Some travelers prefer the privacy of an Airbnb apartment, but depending on the time of year, this may not be the best option. After several years of living in Prague, I’ve had experiences with several hotels of varying price-points, and certainly now have a few to recommend. I’ve categorized my hotel recommendations by hotel category: High-End Luxury, Mid-Range Extravagance, and Hostel Charm.

High-End Luxury

There are many high-end hotels throughout the city of Prague, and fortunately, many don’t carry the price tags of luxury hotels in other European capitals. If you’d like to treat yourself to an indulgent hotel stay, Prague is an excellent city to visit!

BoHo Hotel Prague

The BoHo Hotel is situated right in down town Prague, only minutes away from both Náměstí Republiky and Vaclavské Náměstí (Wenceslas Square). Tucked on to a side street and unassuming from the sidewalk, I was amazed at how large and elegant the hotel is once inside. When guests arrive, they are greeted with a welcome drink at the beautiful lobby bar while their rooms are prepared. Once in their rooms, each guest is given a photo book of Prague created especially for the hotel- and guests are even provided with a city tour to learn more about the artist and photos, which decorate all of the rooms!

After a long day of exploring Prague, guests can participate in a daily Moravian wine tasting in the stunning restaurant/breakfast room, or unwind in the library. This hotel even offers a spa with a beautiful jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna for guests to use.

I was so impressed by the attention to detail throughout all of the rooms and common spaces in this hotel. It’s truly a spot to pamper yourself while enjoying a visit to Prague.

Price range:

  • Off-season- €240/night in a standard room, breakfast included
  • High season- €300/night in a standard room, breakfast included

Carlo IV, The Dedica Anthology Hotel

The Carlo IV Hotel is located just a few minutes from the main train station (hlavní nádraží) and Wenceslas Square in the city center of Prague. Part of the Dedica Anthology of Italian-owned hotels, it’s no surprise that this hotel drips in opulence. The lobby is outfitted with gorgeous chandeliers, and the rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and charming. The best part of this hotel, however, is its spa located in the basement of the hotel. Guests have access to a large pool with lounge areas, a steam room and sauna, and a wide range of lovely spa treatments to choose from.

Price range:

  • Off-season- €150/night in a standard room, breakfast included
  • High season- €185/night in a standard room, breakfast included

Mid-Range Extravagance

If luxury hotels in Prague are overwhelming to choose from, mid-range options are even more vast. It’s hard to know which hotels will provide you with what you need, with just that little bit of extra comfort, without having visited before.

Miss Sophie’s

Miss Sophie’s is located in Prague 2 in between I.P. Pavlova and Karlovo Náměstí. It’s just a short tram ride (5 minutes) away from the historic city center of Prague, and is in one of the most popular residential neighborhoods of the city. Miss Sophie’s is a small, boutique hotel that is just oozing with charm.

Double Room at Miss Sophie's in Prague

At Miss Sophie’s, guests are treated to simple, elegantly decorated rooms with loads of natural light. Each room is stylish and inviting, and each is slightly different which gives the hotel a very unique atmosphere. There is a lovely garden just behind reception that is available for guests to use, and the hotel has recently installed a small spa for its guests. Breakfast is served across the street at Sophie’s Hostel, which offers 24-hour reception and bar, and a lovely hot or cold breakfast selection.

Miss Sophie’s gives every impression of being a high-end hotel without the staggering price point. You’ll be treated to every comfort and convenience during your stay, I can’t imagine a better place from which to explore Prague.

Price range:

  • Off-season- €80/night in a standard double room (breakfast for an additional €7)
  • High season- €120/night in a standard double room (breakfast for an additional €7)

Hostel Charm

There is nothing like the experience of staying in a hostel, and Prague has an absolute wealth of hostel choices available with some of the lowest prices for a capital city in Europe. So, how do you know which one will give you bed bugs, and which one will allow you to meet the best traveling friends you could imagine? As a traveler who was stayed in many hostels over the years, I like to think that I’ve gained a knack for picking decent hostels, but it’s so hard to choose when you’ve never visited a city before.

Sophie’s Hostel

A sister property of the aforementioned Miss Sophie’s, Sophie’s Hostel is easily the most beautiful hostel I’ve ever seen. With apartments, private rooms, and dorm rooms available, Sophie’s Hostel offers everything that any type of traveler could possibly want. The private rooms and apartments are separated from the shared dormitory spaces, giving those rooms the essence of a true hotel- you really wouldn’t know that you were even in a hostel (except for the price)!

The dormitory rooms, on the other hand, are clean, safe, and well-kept with beautiful common facilities. Each bed has its own reading light, small locker near the bed, and outlet (!), as well as a larger rolling locker under the bed. Bring your own locks, and you will never need to worry about your things going missing here. Sheets are included at no additional cost- you don’t even need to unmake your bed at the end of your stay!

Dorm Room in Sophie's Hostel in Prague

Breakfast for both Miss Sophie’s and Sophie’s Hostel is served in the lobby of the hostel, with both hot and cold buffet options available depending on your preferences and budget. Sophie’s Hostel guests also have access to a common kitchen, in case they would prefer to prepare their own meals.

The prices in the private rooms and apartments in high season are comparable to the double standard rooms in Miss Sophie’s in off season, so staying at Sophie’s Hostel is a great option if you’re on a budget when visiting Prague in the summer months.

Price range:

  • Off-season- €10-20/night in a dorm room, depending on the size of the dorm (breakfast for an additional €7)
  • High season- €20-30/night in a dorm room, depending on the size of the dorm (breakfast for an additional €7)

Sophie’s Hostel is admittedly not the cheapest hostel option in Prague. Fortunately, the same hotel group that runs Sophie’s Hostel to such a high standard has a few other properties in the city! For lower budget options, check out the Czech Inn Hostel or Sir Toby’s Hostel.

  1. That’s a good list! I was so confused on where to stay in Prague when I visited. Will have to go for one of these when I visit next time xx

  2. I would have LOVED to have a guide like this for my trip to Prague. We ended up staying in a super cute place, but the bar next door kept us awake every night until the sun came up.

  3. Hi Katie. That’s great recommendations. This can be my guide to visit PRAGUE. Regarding hotel you recommended above, which one is your favorite? By the way, I’m also thinking to buy a luggage. Could you give me suggestion how to choose best one? One site suggests lightweight luggage, so it may be convenient to carry. Thank you in advance for your suggestion.

    1. Hi Issie, I’m glad you enjoyed it! In terms of luggage, lightweight is definitely the way to go. I prefer soft-sided over hard-sided 🙂
