I'm an Englishman who has lived in and around Prague since 1996 and been officially resident since 2005. Here you'll get insider tips on hotels, airport transfers, tours and generally how to enjoy the city plus discounts wherever I can find them i.e. for organised tours, when eating at many Prague restaurants and Prague accommodation. Going to be here in December? check out the Christmas page for market locations and tips etc.
As a tourist turned Prague resident I have a unique perspective into the city, it's geography and it's resources. I list all my recommendations for Prague hotels, Prague apartments, airport transfers, restaurants, bars, tour guides, tour companies and a lot more than that. It has that refreshingly honest "tell it like it is" approach that you don't find in your average Prague guide.
Are you curious if your hotel really is in the centre of Prague with a great view? My Prague accommodation pages list many of the hotels in Prague with my own independent assessment including what's good and what's not so good. I tell you the webpage of the hotel as well. More than once I've been told that people went to a travel agent and checked the offer against my webpage before making their decision.
And this is just a taste of my Prague guide. It has an extensive Czech food section, Prague hotels, bar and restaurant guides, tips for parents, more than 300 photos, a quiz, bus and train station guides, car hire tips, Czech history, seasonal guides, the 2002 flood, life in a village, museums, parks, gallery guide, shopping centre guide, scams to watch out for, money guide, Prague walking tours and even more stuff that shows you how to generate online maps/timetables etc and how to stay healthy and safe here. You'll find Prague deals that will stretch your budget further than you thought. Enjoy your trip.
FIND THE RIGHT HOTEL:
Notice I don't just say find a hotel. My accommodation pages for each area are filled with local info and tips about hotels here. No travel agent rubbish like "near the centre", "short distance", "a few minutes walk", "city view" etc. I know these places and I know how long it takes to walk. I only list Prague hotels. Ones I like and ones to watch out for. Many recommended. Some personally recommended and there's only 1 review here, mine. Pick your place and see the best booking deal available. Choose your favourite booking agent or choose the cheapest. By comparing Prague hotel prices available during your trip you can cut out unnecessary extras and get better value. Its up to you. Not sure about your Prague hotel choice? send me an email and I'll help if I can. Or just use the search box on the right, you'll find similar search boxes on each accommodation page. Sort the result by popularity, star rating or price. Go for the direct search or read a bit more on the Hotel page. And if you still haven't found appropriate accommodation in Prague and want to see more hotels click here. You'll also find my own list of personally recommended Prague apartments.
PRAGUE ORGANISED TOURS DISCOUNTS:
Print the voucher on Tours page and present it at any of the Premiant City Tour booths in Prague when you book a tour to receive 10% off the published price. You can use the discount voucher on any of the Premiant Tours listed on my Tours and Excursions page. Individuals or groups, anyone can use it. Applies to all regular tours, excursions and boat trips. The voucher cannot be used for the hop-on, hop off service which is part run by another company. Further terms and conditions on the voucher. Book online to reserve tour places and get the internet 10% discount via this site but if you want to wait until you arrive in Prague and don't want to book online then use the voucher and you'll still get 10% off. No catch, anybody offering tours works on commission. I'm just choosing to give part of my commission to you. Same tour, more spending money in your pocket. Enjoy Prague.
It's that time of year when the weather turns a bit colder and wetter and you'll be dodging in and out of places to get a bit of warmth. Why not include some "Wellness" on your trip. Prague has a wide selection of facilities from basic walk-in foot massages to intensive 3 hour treatments. Treat your spouse (or partner) to a relaxing oil bath or an invigorating back and neck massage. Some recommended places are on the Wellness page.
