It’s easy to see why travelers fall in love with Prague. This Iron-Curtain capitol has shed its communist past for hedonistic nightlife in a picture-postcard setting. And it is cheap!
Comparison of Three Star Hotels Prague Metro
No wonder only London, Paris, Rome and Istanbul get more annual visitors; Prague packs a city-break punch for over six million visitors per annum. It is easy to get around too, with 65.2 km (40.5 mi) of metro train lines.
Hotels in the city centre are reasonably priced, but for a real bargain head east on the B-line to Prague 9. This suburb is home to the O2 Arena that has played host to Madonna and Lady Gaga. So, if you time your visit well, you can catch some international stars live.
And how much money can you expect to save in Prague 9? A lot! Expect to pay around $34.14 per night for a respectable hotel with Wi-Fi and (in some cases) breakfast.
