I made a reservation at Hotel U Prince in Prague for 2 nights. I was quoted a price (for 3 people in a junior suite) of Euro 199 per night. So Euro 398 total for the stay. I've started researching the basics for the trip and remembered that the Czech Republic is still using the Czech Koruna (CZK). Any idea why the hotel would quote me in Euros? Should I request they quote me in CZK? I looked on xe.com and the exchange rate (as of today) is 1CZK = .049 USD. The exchange rates of course change on a daily basis but this at least gives me an idea. Our trip is in July.
This is my first time traveling to countries (Prague and Croatia) that are have different currencies than the Euro. The dollar is weak against the euro (although it's better than it was a couple of years ago) but if I can use the CZK and save money, obviously I would do that.
Thank you for the help!!
