Prague hotel market has taken quite a big hit over the past 18 months. With the recession and new hotels opening in the city, prices have sharply decreased. This is definitely good news for tourists, who can now afford to go to quality hotels in the centre for sometimes less than 100 euros per night. Standard accommodation has also experienced a downward trend, which means that people on a shoe string budget will also find a good deal of cheap hotels, with room nights at less than 50 euros, even in the centre!
Thus, this is a great opportunity to come and visit Prague. And don’t worry, in any season Prague is a charming and bustling city where you’ll always have some place to visit, some restaurant to go eating and somewhere to go enjoying your time!
You may think that it is difficult (or even not possible) to get cheap accomodation and have large rooms.. Well, in fact you may be surprised, but it’s totally possible (and in fact not only in Prague!). It is as simple as choosing to stay in a residence instead of a hotel.
Apart hotel in Prague
Instead of staying in a hotel room, you’ll be staying in a fully furnished apartment, where you’ll have a lot more space, and a kitchen, should you like to cook for yourself. It is ideal for families, or even business travelers, who are staying for a few days, and need some spaces to stay and work at the same time.
You may ask why this is cheaper. Well first, instead of being right in the centre, you’ll be something like 10minutes away from the centre by tram or metro. In fact, you often end up staying in nice residential area with many nice cafés and restaurants (like Vinohrady area in Prague 2). And finally you won’t get the daily housekeeping.
To sum, you’ll get slightly less in terms of services, but you get ample space in your room, a kitchen, and most of the time you’ll end up paying 30% to 40% less than what you normally pay in a smaller hotel room. So give it a try!
