Cheap areas to stay in Prague

Can you have a comfortable time in Prague without blowing your whole holiday budget on accommodation costs? Absolutely. If you’re savvy enough to do your research, you can even find cheap hotels in the eternally popular Old Town district, amid more palatial pads. There is a wider selection of budget-friendly places down in New Town, an area that – despite its name – is every bit as historic. You can also think outside the box and opt for a hotel in bohemian Zizkov, an area popular with students, creatives, and anyone eager for a bargain.

Cheap hotels in Prague

Located to the north of the city, Hostel Seven is just a 10-minute tram ride from the central, attraction-filled parts of Prague, and offers fuss-free guestrooms, which are particularly well suited to backpackers and anyone who’s really watching their spending. Then there’s Hotel Prokopka, which has the option of apartment-style accommodation with kitchenettes – ideal if you want to save money by cooking your own meals. Another good, cheap option is Club Hotel Praha, which has smartly turned-out guestrooms, and offers perks like free WiFi in the public areas.

Where to find cheap food in Prague

The traditional dishes of Prague are hearty and soul-warming, whether it’s roasted pork served up with soft, pillowy dumplings, or hearty Czech goulash, which really works a treat in the winter months. Go to the tucked away, family-run places in the Old Town and New Town for good meal deals, especially at lunchtime, or head over to Zizkov to seek out cheap and cheerful joints serving up juicy burgers and hot dogs with locally brewed beers. For cheap food on the go, pop by the street stalls in places like Wenceslas Square.

Cheap things to do in Prague

Much of Prague feels like a sprawling, open-air museum, so you really don’t have to spend much money to have a memorable day out. Go sightseeing around the many ornate squares, and check out landmarks like Charles Bridge, that much-mythologized crossing, which dates back centuries and is lined by towering statues of saints. Another historic landmark that defines Prague is St Vitus Cathedral, which is part of the Prague Castle complex. A looming cornucopia of Gothic flourishes, it is noted for its dazzling stained glass, ribbed vaults, and its stone-encrusted St Wenceslas Chapel. Meanwhile, over in the Old Town Square, you can see the fantastical Astronomical Clock, which was built in the 15th century and still plays out a clockwork procession of saints every hour. Then, take a walk up to Petrin Hill, which features an Eiffel Tower-like structure offering panoramic views.

Cheap ways to get around Prague

One of the best things about Prague is how easy it is to explore on foot. You’ll hardly need to spend a penny on public transport, as long as you bring your comfiest shoes and enjoy the prospect of wandering the ancient streets at your leisure. That said, you can always hop onto one of the buses and trams to whoosh over to a particular attraction, while the subway network offers a fast and reliable way of getting around.
