Prague Tips on Hotels

Stay at Alrcon Hotel: A good choice to stay in Prague is Alcron hotel (five stars, in the old town, great location, quiet rooms, nice breakfast, free Nespresso in rooms, excellent value for money).

Other Great Hotels to Stay in Prague: Another three good choices are Corinthia, Intercontinental, and Hilton Old Town. Out of the three, Hilton Old town has the most central position and then Intercontinental. Corinthia is more far away from the center of Prague, still it’s good value for money. All these three hotels are also solid recommendations for a business travel in Prague.

Prague Tips – Restaurants

For Meat Lovers: try the Brasileiro restaurant. There are two Brasileiro restaurants in Prague. Brasileiro offers an all you can eat buffet with meat that is being brought to you all the time, and if you are not a meat lover you can still try prawns, sushi, vegetables and salads. There are only two beers to choose from but Brasileiro has an extensive wine list. The cost will be around 40 euros per person. Meat served, is mostly beef cuts and then some chicken. They also bring you grilled anana which is great. Brasileiro is in the minus one level inside a shopping mall so don’t expect any nice view and; you go there just for the food. No views and not a good place for romance.

For Italian Food Lovers

  • Elements restaurant inside the President hotel is an elegant Italian restaurant. Dark atmosphere and nice view of the river.
  • Kogo restaurant is the best Italian restaurant in Prague.

For Czech Food/Local Food Lovers

  • Kolkovna restaurant (several locations) is a solid choice for local Czech food. Not a fancy place but it serves the best local food, together with the popular Lokal restaurant.
  • Lokal restaurant is a very popular choice for Czech food. Book ahead. It is a place with local Czech food cooked with great materials but don’t expect anything upscale or super trendy. Still it is very popular with locals and tourists.
