Who ever reads this, i’m wondering where the best place in prague would be to stay, would it be best to stay ni the city center or outside of the city centre.
There are about 15 of us going and would like to be closest to all the parties and nightlife.
oes anyone also know of any apartments for rent in Prague?

there is a brief guide to the pros and cons of accommodation in various parts of Prague right here on Prague Spot.
It really depends on how much you want to spend and how much you want to commute. Prague’s integrated public transit system, which offers transportation by bus, tram, metro, train, and funicular, is so well-planned, reasonably priced, and quick that staying in the outskirts is really not as bad as many travelers may think.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions about Prague please feel free to ask me. Enjoy your stay!

I stayed in prague a couple weeks ago, just outside of the center (a few metro stops) and it was nice to get away a bit. You can find placemarks showing exact locations of stuff like that in Prague at [url=http://exploreglobe.net]exploreglobe.net[/url] which Load in Google Earth and link to pics and info and websites and such. It’s a good way to plan.

Hotel 51, Praha 9, Prague 194 00, Konzumní 14 / 253 – close to the Hloubetin metro station. Rooms acceptable (rather 2*). Staff can smoke at your breakfast (rather 2*). Although shown – they don’t accept credit cards. Cash required. Don’t pay in advance. If they fail you won’t get money back. Hotel 51 doesn’t belong to any association.

I think outskirts of Prague are better, center can be too expensive. And I don’t see why you have to pay more, if you have almost the same conditions. hotels Prague in outskirts have nice conditions, less tourists crowd around. And you can get from outskirts to Prague center very fast thanks to perfect Prague public transport system.

Hi, it depends what you need. Public transport to the centre of prague is goog but only during day. Evenings you can wait 30 minutes for bus and during night you have to use night trams with drunken people! I prefer centre of Prague because you can walk and come after midnight and don not need public transport or expansive taxi. It is not true that all hotels in the centre are expensive. If you take little bit less comfortable accommmodation you can stay right in the centre of the city for little money. I have good experience with some Prague hostels but not typical youth hostels. For example KDM Hostel.
