What this 11-room hotel lacks in size, it makes up for with its location and incredibly friendly staff. It is efficient with its use of space and there is no skimping with their eye-catching design in the differently themed rooms. Modern artwork and a fascination with jewels run rampant throughout. Location is the biggest draw to this hotel, as waking up on an extremely quiet street so close to so many of the incredible sights that Prague has to offer is a real charm.

For those that actively enjoy a river walk, Miss Sophie’s in the New Town is a 30-minute amble along the Vltava from the city centre – a wonderful scenic way to start any day. This quiet hotel manages to bring to life a 19th-century building with contemporary touches that do not infringe on its character. Bright rooms are designed for that feel-good factor, a mixture of wood and colour and sweeping fabrics that are easy on the eye.

The family-run Hotel Salvador brings a taste of the Mediterranean to the middle of Prague for its guests. The energy within the walls of this quirky hotel is as enthusiastic as it is colourful and the friendly hosts will make sure that you have a positive experience. Rooms are brightly decorated and simple, and Czech architects have kept the character of the Old Town building by setting the rooms around the inner garden courtyard with a labyrinthine restaurant and wine cellars. With so much Spanish influence in this hotel, you are likely to forget that you are in Prague at all until you walk out and find yourself in the middle of the city and only a five-minute walk from the Powder Tower.
