They may be less common than in other major European cities, but there is no shortage of B&Bs in Prague. If you are looking for inexpensive accommodation without giving up the comforts of home, they could be for you. It is no coincidence that more and more travellers are opting for a B&B instead of staying in a hotel, attracted both by the price and the more ‘authentic’ atmosphere that can be found in a room with private individuals.
Just like hotels, bed and breakfasts in Prague are of different categories, with prices that can vary considerably depending on the area and services offered, but are still cheaper than a hotel room. You are sure to find one that suits you.
The main reason for the success of B&Bs is undeniably the cheap price: these establishments are almost everywhere, including Prague, cheaper than a hotel.
But for many tourists there is also the desire to get in touch with the local culture, to see what the local houses are like, how the people of Prague live. For example, the breakfast you will be served in a bed and breakfast in Prague will certainly be a typical breakfast rather than the standard continental breakfast that is served in many hotels.
Services vary greatly from establishment to establishment: some b&b’s are very basic and provide only the essential services; others offer something extra, such as TV in the room, DVD on loan, Internet connection, free tea and coffee. The bathroom can be private or shared. Some B&Bs also have family rooms that can accommodate up to four people.
