The Czech Republic capital’s owner-run retreats don’t just lay on bountiful spreads each morning, but wine cellars, saunas, leafy gardens and ever-helpful hosts

A fairytale patchwork of domes, spires and hilltop castle walls, Prague is famous for its winding alleys, nooks and crannies. So, a characterful bed and breakfast here can help you tap into the city’s bohemian local style. It’s also a great budget destination, with affordable treats, from craft beers to rustic bar snacks. It’s just as easy to keep your accommodation low-key and on a shoestring with the Czech capital’s best bed and breakfasts.

1. Pension Hattrick

Bed and Breakfast

Rooms at the quirky, little Pension Hattrick have individual feature walls (tartan, floral), upcycled furniture and (for some) kitchenettes, so you can self-cater, should the mood strike. Loveliest of all, though, are its communal areas: slink down to the cavernous wine cellar for a glass of vino among exposed brick and hefty barrels; reserve the private sauna for after some sightseeing; or sit out with a local beer on rustic furniture in the leafy garden.

2. Chopsticks B&B

Bed and Breakfast

A little way out of the city centre in the residential Seberov neighbourhood (a 20-minute drive from the Charles Bridge), Chopsticks has romantic, pastel-hued rooms with different themes, and the feel of a country guesthouse in the city. The owners are positive, friendly and full of tips. Best of all is the home-cooked Vietnamese food served in the restaurant downstairs – hence, the name.

3. Pension Dientzenhofer

Guesthouse

Double bed with orange patterned sheets in an attic-style room with exposed wooden ceiling beams and kitchen area at Pension Dientzenhofer.

This red-tiled, quaint hideaway is right near central Prague’s charming Kampa ‘island’, a riverside park area that’s home to a modern art museum, striking public art by David Cerny, and the brightly graffitied Lennon Wall. Check out Czerny’s Babies, then retreat to peaceful, wood-beamed rooms and a miniature bar back at the Pension.

4. Old Prague House

Guesthouse

Close to lots of hip bars, hostels and historic architecture on the eastern side of Prague’s Vltava River, Old Prague House has single rooms and four-bed dorms, making it great for solo travellers or groups of pals. The building is classic Prague, and the decor a mishmash of classic oil paintings and simple, mid-century chairs and sofas in neutral colours. The central courtyard is a great place to meet fellow travellers, too.

5. Miss Sophie's Downtown

Boutique Hotel

Industrial-chic bar area at Miss Sophies Downtown. High-backed black stools and hanging lights, and luminous signs saying coffee and bar.

A chic-boutique hotel right next to Prague’s largest railway station, Hlavní Nádraží, Miss Sophie’s is a 20-minute walk from sights such as the Charles Bridge and the Jewish Quarter, which today is just as famous for its bars and restaurants, as its synagogues. With stripped-back concrete walls, retro-industrial decor and even a balcony terrace, it gives a lot of fresh hipster style, and quality food and drink for your buck.

6. Pension Villa Marit

Guesthouse

Large bed with purple sheets in a stylish room with magazine cover art, with low sofa and round table at Pension Villa Marit.

A little way out east, in the Skalka district, Marit is pink (inside and out) and surrounded by pots of flowers. This family-run B&B offers a home-cooked breakfast and you have a mini-fridge in your room for supplies. The metro journey in from Skalka to Wenceslas Square and the city centre is 15 minutes.

7. Pension Brezina Prague

Guesthouse

Double bed with white sheets and purple towels in a minimal room with slanted roof at Pension Brezina Prague.

This pretty, historic townhouse has beautiful, ornate mouldings in its interiors, as well as rustic-feeling wood beams in many of its rooms, though overall decor is simple. Set slightly out of the way, near the museum dedicated to the composer Antonín Dvořák, it’s a half-hour walk or a 15-minute metro to the Charles Bridge – but room rates are an absolute steal, with helpful staff on reception making it even better value.

8. Lida Guest House

Guesthouse

Double bed with yellow sheets and tiger throw facing two leather rocking chairs in a room at Lida Guest House.

A homey, private villa with its own garden, Lida is set on the more modern, trendy east side of the river. Family run, it has rooms with pops of bright colour in throws to towels, and a lovingly prepared breakfast. Your hosts can also organise transfers in from the airport. Though, you’ll need to use the metro for sightseeing, as it’s about an hour’s walk to the Charles Bridge and old town.

9. Aparthotel Tycho de Brahe

Bed and Breakfast

Twin beds in a sleek, minimal room with slanted roof and wide windows and a door opening onto a large balcony at Aparthotel Tycho de Brahe.

Right in Prague’s sloping, Medieval old town, in the streets below its towering castle, this guesthouse has modern, airy rooms and castle views. Once the house of a Danish mathematician, it’s perfect for exploring Mala Strana – the cobbled area of Prague you’ve seen in so many pictures. Breakfast is a generous spread, and there are lovely restaurants and taverns in the area.
