Prague is such a beautiful city there’s no wonder why it’s such a popular tourist destination; impressive architecture, renowned arts, intriguing history, plenty of nightlife options, and gorgeous parks are some of the big draws bringing in a very diverse mix of people. It can get a bit crowded, but I still think it’s worth a visit.
With this brings quite a vast spread of accommodation options from hostels to grand hotels. I found a couple of nice hotels at pretty fair prices as you’ll see below. The first one was a little out of the city center which I found nice as it gave me reason to venture off further out exploring on foot and was a nice walk when I went into the city center. The second was closer to the center, just a few blocks away from Wenceslas Square.
This was a 39-night stay…
- Accommodation – $1,983.15* (additional information below)
- Getting around locally – $5 (a few bus/tram rides)
- Living expenses – $889.42 (groceries and eating out)
- Activities – $0
- Mobile phone/data – $105.86 (I use Google Fi providing service in most countries)
- Medical insurance = $89.84 (I’m using SafetyWing)
Total $3,073.27 / 39 nights = $78.80 per
Transportation to and from varies too much, so I’ve left it out along with most incidental/one-time personal costs. All other standard day to day expenses are included to give an idea of how much basic living costs in the area are. Groceries will sometimes include basic personal care items (i.e. toothpaste, deodorant, etc.).
- Breakdown of hotel costs
- The first 15 nights were at the Royal Court Hotel. After looking around, I found the best price was booking directly on the hotels website. The 15 night total came out to US $759.52.Royal Court Hotel
- The next week I booked at the H7 Palace through Agoda. The 7 night total was approximately US $323.68.
- I extended my stay at the H7 Palace a few times for the remainder of my stay directly with the hotel. The breakdown; 7 nights $356.57, 7 nights $390.34, 3 nights $153.04.
