Where to stay on New Years Eve in Prague?

by electricgerm

I made a mistaken of booking everything late, I know.
But the thing is, I have my plane tickets all
booked now etc so I am staying at Prague the New Year's
weekend. I feel stuck. Cause when I check the hotel prices,
they are whopping USD$200 or above all of them at least.
And worse, most of them are full.

You guys been there? Is it really that full on
the 31st? Should I risk walking in last minute hoping for
something cheaper that day? Or am I paying USD$200-$300
a night and book now? I was in London last year
New Year's Eve weekend, and it wasn't nearly as
expensive, not even close, not even remotely close,
the hotels there said they were full, but when we
arrived it was 1/2 empty...

Any recommendation?

Thanks. Any info helps now. I'm desperate.

I just had a quick look at www.hrs.com, switched to English and to US$, they are showing 37 hotels in Prague for New Year's weekend, several of them in the 140/150 US$ range.

Did you Check accor hotels/hotel ibis?there are usually much cheaper.also try bed and breakfast,though I cannot remember seeing any in prague.also type,hostels and backpacker guest houses if it is ok with you.I visited my friend who was staying in one and found it very clean and comfortable.
Good luck,and wish you a very happy new year!!
Prague is beautiful and am sure you will have a good time.

Take a look at booking.com I put in the dates of Dec 28 for 6 nights, when you get to the list of hotels, click at the top to have quotes by price "single price" there are many hotels that are reasonable and still available.

Yes, definitely look at www.booking.com It's arelaible site with honest guest reviews and won't charge you anything as long as you turn up.

Also check www.venere.com, equally reliable with equally honest guest reviews.

Do not just turn up. Walk-in prices in Europe are never as good as those you find by booking in advance, in my experience, and prices on both of the sites I've mentioned are almost inevitably cheaper than those on the hotel's own website.

Travel Tips for Prague

Movies and books

by Dabs

I got two guidebooks, The Rough Guide to The Czech and Slovak Republics and Lonely Planet's Czech and Slovak Republics, since we were traveling both in Prague and outside of it. While a bit bulkier, I preferred the Rough Guide to Lonely Planet.

There are three films set in Prague and the Czech Republic that I highly recommend. The 1st is "Kolya", a 1997 Golden Globe winner set in Prague right before the 1989 Velvet Revolution, it's a heart warming story about a confirmed Russian resisting bachelor and the little Russian boy who ends up stealing his heart. The 2nd is "Zelary", set during WWII, the two main characters a sophisticated Prague nurse who donates blood to save a mountain dweller who then saves her when she is forced to seek refuge with him, her adaptation to a rural life is a story really well told. The 3rd is "Shop on the Main Street" about a sad sack of a man who becomes the Aryan controller of a Jewish shop during WWII and the ethical dilemma that it presents.

Another film that I thought was interesting although not of the same caliber as "Kolya" and "Zelary" is "Stesti" (Something Like Hapiness), a look at the life of three young people and their families in an industrial Czech town, all dealing with issues like poverty, mental illness and the American dream. I didn't really care for the ending but I did end up caring about two of the central characters.

old town

by fabrice

of course the old town is charming ; all around you will see very modern shops like in New York City or London ; dozens of restaurants and pizzerias are also to be found in the area , and they are not cheap.
But if you walk 3 or 4 kms from the centre , you will see another Prague ,not rich and show off, which tries to get out of the communist years

Watch yourself

by Cham

Seriously Absinthe is very strong stuff... and it does taste pretty nasty... but be very careful how much you drink of it... it doesn't seem to affect you straight away... then all of a sudden it feels like you've been hit by a 10 ton lorry! lol

Jewish Cemetery

by xristos83

The Jewish Cemetery was a fascinating place to see. It originally dates back to the Renaissance when there existed a Jewish Ghetto. The Jews were not allowed to bury their dead outside of the ghetto so this cemetary became quite packed!
