US$60 a day in Prague and you really do think this is not a lot of money?
Please come down to earth and see how much money the average person makes. Sorry...

Well, I stayed for about a week in a budget pension away from the tourist area (though not way out), but it wasn't 20€. So out of curiosity, I just checked out the price of a single Agricola and Villa Troja. At the Agricola, it's from 36€ in low season to 62€ in high season, and at the Villa Troja it's 34€ to 48€.

I don't doubt that you could negotiate a 20€ rate at the Agricola in February when they wanted to fill empty rooms, but I wouldn't excoriate somebody for paying more, especially if it's not mid-winter.

The Agricola is a nice place and it's by far not only o.k in February!

I'm not questioning whether it's okay, I'm only pointing out that it's not normally 20€.

Incidentally, a normal metro ticket is 20 koruna, not 5. Of course, you could get a ride for 5 koruna by buying a weekly pass for 280 and then using it 56 times during the week.

75% of the year you can get a room at any of those 3 places for 20-23€

Thanks so much to all for your postings - they are very helpful.

If I wanted to stay in a more moderate hotel, closer to the center, do you have any recommendations for me?

By the way, when I was talking about $500, I meant for 2-3 days, not for a week!

Thanks again,
Susan

Try www.hrs.com
Pick an expensive hotel et voila
On the other hand, you could spend a lot less for the same quality rooms. But if you want to get rid of your money fast, and it is your money and you can do with it whatever you like! that's the way to go.

I was there a few years back, so my experience is out of date, but you might want to look here:

for reviews of places to stay at many price levels, not just the more upscale places that show up in every guidebook.

Try the single room at Hotel Grand (I think I booked it through Athos, or their affiliate site). It was maybe 150 Euros per night back in April. It is RIGHT in Old Town Square. They have one single room, so if you can get it, you are right in the center!!
