Potrefena Husa restaurants, Staropramen group

Burger Potrefena Husa (© Potrefena Husa)While walking in Prague’s centre, you will probably notice several Potrefena Husa restaurants. If you get in, you’ll see that they only have Staropramen beer or beers from the same group (for instance Stella Artois, which is distributed by Staropramen on the Czech market). This is simply due to the fact that this chain of restaurants was launched by the beer group.

A popular chain of restaurants

This chain of restaurants is very popular amongst the young working population (20-30 years of age), and the brand Potrefena Husa has succesfully developed in secondary cities namely in Plzen, Olomouc, Ostrava or Zlin. Potrefena Husa has now more than 30 restaurants operated in the Czech Republic.

Menus may vary depending on restaurants, but you’ll always find the Czech classic dishes (svickova, Plzen gulas, or pork schnitzel), as well as some very common international dishes such as burgers, chicken wings, grilled salmon and potato purée.

A great option for a cheap lunch

Some of the restaurants are located in the very centre – if you’re planning on going there for dinner, make sure you make a booking as they get very busy even during week days. At lunch time, you will be able to get the typical lunch menu (very common in Czech Republic) where you get a soup and a choice of 4 main dishes (one being light in calories). The soup will cost you approximately one euro, while the main dish costs from 4 to 6 euros – a great deal especially if you’re on a small budget. Still, one thing you may have to do is ask one of the waiters (who are always happy to help) to translate the lunch menu for you, as these are generally only on Czech.

Here below are some of Potrefena Husa restaurants in the centre :
Praha Hybernska – Dlážděná 1003, Prague 1 (Booking: +420 224 243 631)
Praha Národní třída – Národní třída 364/39, Prague 1 (Booking: +420 273 130 555)

Extol Inn hotel, Prague 7, budget hotel

These days, it’s not that difficult to find rather cheap accommodation in Prague, but you won’t necessarily find accommodation which is good value for money.

Quality budget hotel at a reasonable price

Extol Inn is amongst these hotels that have reasonable rates for good quality rooms, which makes it a good budget hotel. The hotel is located north of the centre, in Prague 7, a 10 minute tram ride from the centre. They offer both en-suite rooms (single, double, triple) and rooms with shared bathrooms. Thus, this is definitely something that would match your needs if you’re a family travelling on a shoe string budget, or just a group of backpackers travelling together, who don’t necessarily ned the comfort of an en-suite room.

Extol Inn also offers free wifi in the hotel, as well as a fitness centre – rather unusual for a budget hotel!

All in all, it’s quite a good choice if you’re looking for a budget hotel, and you don’t mind the 10 minute ride to the centre!
