Dum u Velky Boty – An Intimate Setting
The owners of this house, Jan and Charlotte Rippl, have been welcoming guests to their wonderful hotel for over a decade, and there’s a reason by many of them choose to come back year after year. Not only does this hotel benefit from a solid reputation as a comfortable, warm and friendly establishment, but it’s also just around the corner from the Lesser Quarter, one of the most popular areas in the city.
Built in 1669, this huge house has seen various extensive restorations, and thankfully it still contains some of its 17th century flair which makes it so attractive to stay in.

If you’re only staying in Prague for the weekend, then you’ll surely be looking for something cheap and cheerful. The Clown and Bard can be found in the Zizkov District, one of the most popular up and coming areas of the city, and it’s a place where you can feel at home, no matter how short your stay. Although rooms are cheap, starting from as little as £7, that doesn’t mean you’re going to staying with all the riff-raff; in fact, stag and hen parties are barred from booking at the hotel.
One of the best things about the Clown and Bard is its evening entertainment. From live bands and themed nights to magic shows and other great forms of entertainment, you could easily spend and evening in the hotel, and with the great local food it serves, you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your bedroom!
