Known as the “city of A Hundred Spires”, Prague is home to many famous cultural attractions that survived great wars; as a matter of fact since1992 it has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
10 major museums, numerous theaters, galleries, cinemas and great hotels, they all are part of Prague’s charm, a good reason to visit and stay in Prague.
Every year nearly 4.4 million people visit and enjoy the magnificent city of Prague.
ROOM WITH A VIEW
The accommodation shouldn’t be a problem when you are visiting Prague mainly because of the various and tempting offers.
Being a historic town you have the chance to stay in hotels which offer great views to the historical places. For example, such a hotel is Boutique Hotel Klarov. Centrally located, Klarov is a 4 star Neo Classic style boutique hotel in Old Town that offers a breathtaking view of Prague Castle and Charles Bridge, and of course all the facilities of modern technology: WI-FI and cable TV…Other historical sites including the Old Town Square, Mala Strana, Franz Kafka Museum and Charles Bridge are only 5 minutes away from the hotel.
Don’t act surprised if you get the feeling that you are traveling back in time, because you are not, you only have the chance to stay in restored houses and hotels from the 19th century. One of this kind is Hotel Dar situated at only 50 meters from the Old Town Square. The business hotel in this location dates back from 1870 and most of the critics swear is the most beautiful location in the neighborhood. But don’t be fooled by the façade because if you are looking for a modern interior this is the right place to stay.
These are only two of the luxury hotels in Prague, but Prague is not all about luxury, now families can find deals at big name hotels such as Mariott and Movienpick or at family owned inns such as Residence Retezova.
NOTE TO YOURSELF
If you are traveling with your family, most hotels in Prague provide amenities for kids, from extra beds to babysitting services, all being accessible for an additional fee. There are also hotels whose restaurants have a special kids menu and even playgrounds for kids.
You also need to consider that Prague hotels go by a three season system: the lowest prices are charged from November until mid – March, the middle season is from July until August and the high season is for Christmas, New Years and from the end of March until June and again from mid – August until October.
Once you have decided upon the hotel, the reservation is a must, especially during the peak season. In case you are a star rating aficionado you should know that unlike other countries, the Czech Republic doesn’t practice an official rating system, so hotels rate themselves and usually toss on a star or two more than they actually deserve.
