Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is also known as The Golden City. One of the most beautiful cities in Central Europe, it was under communist rule until not that very long ago. Back then, it was very difficult to travel to Prague. However, things changed after the fall of the Iron Curtain and finding Prague hotels, hostels, and apartments became easier and easier as time passed.

Best Prague hotels
While the quality of Prague hotels was questionable back in the early ’90s, at the moment all international hotel chains have their own Prague hotels. From the most common to the most luxurious hotels, Prague is one of the European cities with the highest number of five-star hotels!
A visit to The Golden City is always a wonderful experience, and choosing from the best Prague hotels will add a nice touch to your travel itinerary. You’ll find a wide variety of hotels in Prague to choose from depending on your budget.
As you’re searching for Prague hotels, you’ll notice that it’s not hard to find one in the city centre. Actually, most Prague hotels are located in Old Town and pretty close to each other. If you’re traveling with friends/family, it won’t be inconvenient if you’re not in the same hotel. The city is very small when compared to some of the other big European cities, so it’s easy to go from A to B in Prague on foot. This is actually one of the most appealing features of Prague!
