Short Term Rentals in Prague

Prague is separated into districts that are numbered one to ten. Charles Bridge spans the Vitava River, and also divides the Old Town into two parts. It’s a compact centre though, so families with small children shouldn’t find walking between the various districts too arduous. It’s roughly a 25 minute stroll from Prague Castle on one side of the river, to the old town on the other side. Prague holiday rentals include apartments within historic buildings, townhouses divided into spacious flats, and more modern studio apartments. Individual houses are also available to rent outside the Old Town. Good transport links by bus and metro are readily available throughout the city, making it easy for those staying slightly away from the centre to travel in and out each day.

  1. Short Term Rentals for Families

    Families visiting Prague for a stay of one month or more may favour the district of Prague 6. Whilst holiday accommodation here is slightly more expensive, there are a number of exclusive neighbourhoods offering large family homes for rent. Many of the houses in this area also include parking and private gardens, perfect for families looking for a home-from-home during their stay.


    It’s hard to beat the areas around Old Town for convenience if you’re staying for one or two weeks. Being so close to all the major sights, plus proximity to the river, shopping and great restaurants is definitely a plus. In Old Town, you’ll find some interesting historic architecture, with self catering apartments situated inside spacious old buildings.


    Fairly close to Old Town lies Letna Park (District 7), with its winding paths and lovely views of the historic centre of Prague. If you don’t want to be based in the centre itself this would be a good compromise, offering proximity to the sights but also a little peace and quiet.

  2. Short Term Rentals on a Budget

    The area of Zizkov (Prague 3) is a little less affluent than some other parts of Prague, and as such, offers more affordable holiday apartments for visitors on a budget. It’s an area popular with students, so has a good selection of bars and cheaper restaurants, but with good links back into the city for sightseeing.


    For longer budget stays, the Nusle area in Prague 4 has a good choice of affordable holiday accommodation. It’s a traditional area with a tram link into the Old City, and because it is largely residential, it has a laid-back atmosphere when compared with the touristy ‘feel’ of the centre of Prague.

  3. Luxury Short Term Rentals

    The Mala Strana area of the Old Town is known for its luxury shopping, accommodation and restaurants, making this an ideal spot for a short term stay. Its location below Prague Castle makes it easy to visit the tourist areas on either side of the river. Apartments here offer rooftop views of the Old Town and the river, with plenty of space to entertain.


    Another area popular with international visitors is Vinohrady. Many apartments here benefit from period features and include their own private terraces and balconies. It’s also possible to find apartment blocks with access to leisure facilities such as a swimming pool and sauna. Further outside the city centre, there are also a number of large cottages and villas furnished to a high standard which would make a memorable base for a special occasion or event.

  4. Short Term Rentals for Business

    Prague airport lies to the west of District 6, with Holesovice (District 7) being a popular area for business visitors because of easy access to and from the airport. It’s an area with smaller one bedroom apartments, lots of offices, and Prague’s second international railway station.


    The Old Town area offers business visitors plenty of choice when it comes to short term lets. If the majority of your business is to be conducted near to the centre of Prague, the Old Town would provide comfortable accommodation with the added bonus of being in beautiful surroundings.

  5. Alternative Short Term Rentals

    For a short stay on the water, Boat Hotel Matylda provides an alternative experience for visitors to the city. Formed from two boats, this floating hotel has 25 rooms in total, plus a restaurant, roof terrace and free wi-fi connection. It’s moored close to the National Theatre and Charles Bridge in the centre of Prague.


    If you’re visiting Prague on a budget, there are a number of good quality hostels in the city, some with communal cooking and laundry facilities. Alternatively, those who are keen to experience Prague from a local’s perspective may want to consider booking a Homestay.
