Prague is one of my favorite cities in Europe. I have enjoyed coming here since my first visit in 2006. The winding cobblestone streets, medieval buildings and spacious squares give the city an unparalleled historical appeal.

Since my first visit, the city’s popularity has skyrocketed. It gets very crowded here in summer and there is now a large selection of hotels. I have stayed in many of them over the years. To help you plan your visit, here is my list of the best hotels in Prague:

1. Hotel Metamorphis

This four-star hotel is located in a historic building right on the Old Town Square. The rooms are bright, spacious and airy with plenty of natural light. Decor is a bit dated, but rooms feature bright colors and special touches like exposed beams or unique tiles. Rooms also feature a flat-screen TV, minibar, desk and coffee maker. The bathrooms look a bit dated but are super spacious. A delicious breakfast of eggs, meat, and fresh bread can be included in the price (however, it’s in a nearby building, so you’ll have to walk a few minutes to get there).

What makes this hotel an excellent choice, aside from its convenient location, is the fact that there is a beer spa on-site. Guests can relax in a wooden vat filled with beer while drinking unlimited beer. It couldn’t be more Czech!

2. Czech inn

This three-star property is part hotel and part hostel, so there are both private rooms and dorms available here. It’s a solid, no-frills choice that’s more sociable than your average hotel, with free walking tours and a lively on-site bar where it’s easy to meet people. The breakfast buffet is rich and varied (also affordable). There is also a well-equipped kitchen should you wish to prepare your own meals.

The decor is rustic and features lots of exposed brick throughout. The private rooms are colorful but simple, with plenty of natural light contrasting with the darker colors and furniture. Some rooms even have hardwood or parquet floors. The rooms feature a TV, coffee/tea maker and a work desk. Plus, it’s just a minute’s walk from the city center. Overall, it’s a cost-effective choice for budget travelers who want a central location.

Housed in a still-active medieval monastery, this posh five-star hotel has 100 large rooms spread across seven buildings. There’s a luxury spa on-site, as well as a 24-hour fitness center with a sauna and steam room. Each room is large and airy and offers plenty of natural light. Rooms feature stylish furnishings, including sofas or armchairs, and period touches such as exposed beams. The beds are super comfortable and the rooms also have a flat screen TV, minibar and coffee/tea maker. The bathrooms are large and elegant, with beautiful tiles, great water pressure, and even a bidet.

There’s a lovely courtyard on-site, as well as a delicious breakfast (though it’s not cheap). However, what really sets this hotel apart is that the cellar bar serves home-made beer brewed according to the recipe of the monks who live in an adjacent building.
