Prague Zizkov Hotels in the Bohemian Quarter

Prague Zizkov Hotels

Zizkov (pronounced pretty much like “shish-kov”) is the Prague 3 district and generally accepted as the cheaper end of the market. Often referred to as “Bohemian” or “up and coming” although it has excellent tram transport links into central areas. It is close to the exclusive Vinohrady area with it’s metro stations. Most of the Prague Zizkov hotels are in the 3 star range but it’s getting more 4 star hotels due to upgrades. You may also find places listing themselves as in “Vitkov”. These are in Zizkov on the Konevova road under the Vitkov Memorial/Hill so it means you will need at least a 25 minute walk or 6 tram stops to get to the centre so consider Public Transport options.

4 Star Prague Zizkov Hotels – Hotel Three Crowns (and Prokop Boutique)

Hotel U Tri Korunek (plus Prokop Boutique) also known as the Hotel at the Three Crowns. Of all the Prague Zizkov hotels this is my favourite in the area. Best service, best equipped (especially for disabled persons). Nothing else much to recommend in the area. Best connection to the centre from the “Konevova/Vitkov” side is by bus to Florenc otherwise you must walk up to “Seifertova” to get the tram. This place is often recommended in independent guides. Be aware that they have now split the building with the original 3 Crowns hotel on one side and the newer more modern Prokop Boutique on the other so you could be in either. The photo is the courtyard garden at the Prokop.

4 Star – Hotel Ariston

Hotel Ariston (and Ariston Patio). One of the original Prague Zizkov hotels that upgraded from a 3 star and has 65 smart rooms with all facilities including tea/coffee. It has one of the best hotel ballrooms in the city. There’s also a modern annex to the main hotel that they now call the Ariston Patio.

I recommend any rooms that face the internal courtyard in the “Patio” but remember you’ll have to go outside on the balcony to get to your door and the services are in the main hotel. It’s a 25 minute walk or 7 minutes by tram to Wenceslas Square.

4 Star – Hotel Theatrino

Hotel Theatrino (formerly Amedia Theatrino and before that Arcohotel Teatrino), is located on the junction of Borivojova and Seifertova. Nearest tram stop is 50 metres. The hotel was last refurbished to accentuate it’s Art Nouveau features and also to add the Spa centre. More accessible for people prepared to use trams as it’s only 4 stops (8 minutes to the centre of Wenceslas Square). It has good conference facilities and if you like sport you are only a 5 minute walk from the squash and badminton courts at Olšanka.

3 Star – Hotel Bily Lev

Hotel Bily Lev (also known as Hotel White Lion) it was elevated to my favourite family 3 star in the area following the upgrade of the Three Crowns and the Ariston. The rooms are well turned out and Bily Lev offers a few extras like free wifi, free fast internet terminal, tea/coffee in the room, safe, and a pleasant outdoor terrace. Basic furnishing in the rooms. You’ll have a 200m walk up to the tram line and then an 8 minute ride to Wenceslas Square. Good budget choice.

3 Star – Hotel Voyage

Of all the Prague Zizkov hotels in the 3 star class this is my favourite for the quality of the hotel but not the best surroundings. Easily the highest spec three star in the area with real double beds, large rooms that accommodate a sofa bed as well so it looks and feels very much like a Novotel only cheaper.

Nice breakfast area at the back facing the hill and you have access to the on-site restaurant with it’s garden terrace. It’s a 10 minute walk to Florenc and another 15 to the Old Town. Otherwise you can walk 250 metres up the hill to get to the tram line which gets you to Wenceslas Square in 6 minutes.

My Tip: Remember that if you are staying in Zizkov then you will almost certainly want to read about Prague Public Transport and or understand How to Use a Touch-Screen Ticket Machine.
