Prague | The Most Beautiful Hotel on a Budget - Motel One Review

At the start of December, we jetted off on a little winter break to somewhere we've wanted to visit for a long time. It's been a few years since we'd had a Christmas market trip and I was ready to drink all the Gluhwein and eat my weight in Klobasy (Czech sausages), so off to Prague we went!

I have a lot to share from our trip (look out for a full on foodie guide and a run down of the best cocktail bars!) but I think it makes sense to start at the beginning, where we stayed. You may be familiar with the Motel One brand but this was my first experience of their fabulous budget hotels. Think Travelodge, but with style!

Motel One Prague - Golden City of 100 Spires

We checked in on a Sunday afternoon, after flying from Edinburgh and following these instructions from Honest Guide Prague to take the public transport into the city centre - which cost us just 32CZK/roughly £1.15. I knew I'd picked the right hotel when I was greeted by this on the window of Motel One Prague!

At the entrance to the hotel is the bar, where they have an extensive cocktail list, a selection of Czech beers and their very own gin menu. The lounge is decorated beautifully with Swarovski chandeliers, Bohemian crystal and intricate puppets highlighting the city's unique traditions.

The rooms were simple but perfectly arranged, with plenty storage, a large powerful shower and a TV fire crackling away as we entered. It made for a real cosy vibe coming in after a day of exploring the bitter cold streets of Prague.

Motel One is located in Prague 1, and we found all the major attractions to be within walking distance. It was also just a short stroll to Dlouha - where we found most of our favourite foodie haunts! Our first evening was spent eating delicious goulash and dumplings at Lokal, before finding ourselves at Old Town Square. Head in the opposite direction and you'll discover the Powder Tower - climb it for epic views of the Golden City!

We paid £238 for 4 nights at Motel One Prague - that's less than £60 a night. An absolute bargain for such a stylish hotel in a prime location. We booked through and paid on check in. I'll definitely be looking out for Motel Ones on our travels this year!
