Accommodation

Accommodation in the Czech Republic corresponds to the standards of European countries. It is possible to find cheap accommodation for students and also top-quality luxury hotels. Other options are provided by guest houses, camp sites, hostels or accommodation in private houses. Detailed information can be found on booking.com.

Hotels are designated one to five stars and classification is no different from that in other European countries.

Just like elsewhere in Europe, it is also possible in the Czech Republic to find cheaper accommodation at the price of a lower level of comfort. An example of this is communal rooms in hostels with bathrooms and toilets in the corridor. Hostels may have the advantage of being located in the centre of the city.
