Where are the best central Prague hotels?
For that matter, what does central really mean?
Actually, that word CENTRAL can mean lots of things to lots of people.
As we look around the web we see all kinds of hotels claiming to be central, but in reality they are often relatively far from the main sights.
But there are only a few areas that are really central. So pay attention to misleading terms from hotels.

Old Town is the most popular area to stay. It's packed with historical sights with Old Town Square being the ultimate center of Prague's universe.
But there's more to Old Town than the mesmerizing square - little streets, quaint restaurants and of course, a variety of small and luxury hotels.
Here are a few suggestions to get you started...
If you're keen on staying in Old Town, consider booking early. Two to three months in advance is best.
Don't let the translation of Malá Strana fool you.
Prague's Little Quarter or Lesser Town is just as important as Old Town.
And, the hotels here are just as inviting. They take advantage of the quiet environs, charming streets and fantastic architectural details.
We like to think of Malá Strana as Prague's romantic hideaway. That's because there are any number of cozy restaurants, beautiful gardens and hidden sights in this quarter.

New Town makes for an ideal place to book a room.
