Where to stay in Prague?

Where to stay in Prague?

Sure, we may run what we think are the finest Prague food tours, but that does not mean we don’t get asked about where to stay in Prague. We do our best to help by inviting our guests to send us a shortlist of the hotels or apartments they have chosen and then give them our two cents on each of their choices. We love to travel, so we like to think we’re in a good position to combine our local knowledge with some of our travel know-how.  

With this post, we want to help you understand the different areas of Prague and their pros and cons. When we travel ourselves, we always look for a balance between easy accessibility to the centre of the town and getting a feel for what we think is a local, true, and interesting part of the city that we visit. So, we will be recommending areas along those lines. We will also throw in a few apartments and hotels we ourselves would like to stay in if we travelled to Prague. And yes, some of these recommendations will be based on our personal experience. (Which is gained when you do non-simultaneous house swaps, rent your own rental apartment and have to book a hotel in your own city because you promised someone to stay in your apartment while you're in Prague.) But don’t worry, we will not push our beautiful, awesome and super cool rental apartment in Prague that has no peers too hard. Oops.

Introducing: Our Taste of Prague apartment for rent!


Our Prague apartment is not just a place to sleep and store your luggage. You can relax, stay in late or come in early, breath in and out, and soak in the atmosphere of the place and the city. With us, you'll have breakfast in the local cafe, see a movie in the local cinema, ride bikes through the local parks, and enjoy Prague as only the locals can.


Our lovely Prague apartment on the fourth floor (don’t worry, there’s a lift) of a functionalist building in Prague is available for holiday and short-term rentals. The two-bedroom flat is located in the Letna district of Prague 7, just a few steps from the Prague Castle, the National Art Gallery, Incheba Expo Prague, Sparta football and ice-hockey arenas and the recently reopened National Technical Museum and within walking distance from the historical and business centre of Prague. The apartment is situated in one of the city’s most favourite, atmospheric and vibrant neighbourhoods. There are two wonderful outdoor oases within walking distance of the apartment – the Stromovka Royal Deer Park, great for picnics and sports, and Letná Gardens with beer spots and excellent views of the Vltava riverbank and the spires and towers of the historical centre. The building is easily accessible by the public transport system.

The interiors are just as interesting as the surroundings. Seasoned travelers ourselves, we have been taking close notes wherever we stayed and then brought them to Klara and Hana of the SMLXL architects. Together, we have created a place that has everything you may need, and more. And because we wanted to connect the interiors with the exteriors, we have asked Ilona and Luke of Tomski & Polanski to create a map of the district on our wall.
