Accommodation in Prague will probably be
most expensive item on your itinerary. Prague is busy all year round so it is best to arrange accommodation in Prague before you depart. If you are
traveling around Christmas, Easter and July or August it is best to book well ahead. When looking for accommodation you should check both the price, and the distance from the city centre. Sometimes it is better to find accommodation further from the centre because, compared to other world cities, Prague is quite small and its public transport is very effective (but check different hotel offers, you may find a great deal in the centre) If you are planning to stay in private accommodation it is advised to view the property before handing over any money. The number of stars does not frequently correspond with international standards, because sometimes the owners class their businesses themselves. Nearly all hotels set prices depending on season. Obviously prices will be highest during peak times. (up to 20% higher in summer than during the low season).
