Best areas for an apartment in central Prague?

My friends and I are visiting Prague in November and want to rent an apartment somewhere central for the weekend.  What neighbourhoods will be close to main attractions, while also having some great cafes, restaurants and maybe a supermarket?

    Hi!

    The most central and recommended to stay areas are

    The Powder Tower

    If you want to tour the city on foot, nothing better to find a hotel close to the Old Town Square or Charles Bridge

    Another interesting area to stay is Wenceslas Square, near it are some of the most luxurious hotels.

    Anything, ask me.
    Good luck!
    Damian

    Prague 7 around Letná Park. Its 15m by walk or less by tram to main attractions and great neighbourhood for caffees and pubs.

    Karlín is a great location for cafes and restaurants (market options are not the best, as far as I'm aware)...some of the city's best coffee spots are within walking distance, or a 5-minute tram ride. (Můj šálek kávy, EMA espresso bar Restaurant Cafe Karlín are the best bets.) Though there's not much of cultural attraction in Karlin itself, it's close enough to the Náměstí Republiky area, from which you can be at Old Town Square in 5minutes (walking), or up on Letná Hill for the views in 10 minutes (tram).


    I would also recommend the New Town area, south of Palackého náměstí. It's a very quiet residential area that is right next to the Vltava River and the lively riverwalk Náplavka. There aren't many good options for restaurants in the vicinity, however I Need Coffee!, Mamacoffee, and Kavárna Pražírna are some great cafes that are nearby. In terms of sights, the ancient fortress grounds at Vyšehrad is a must for the views. You're also just a 10-minute tram ride along the river from Old Town Square and Josefov. As for markets, there are a few express options (Tesco, Billa) but I would highly recommend you check out the farmers' market at Naplavka on Saturdays.

    First off, I have to say that the public transport network in Prague is brilliant and if you're close to a good tram line or to any metro stop, then you're rarely more than 15 min from the main sights. If you have transport tickets in your budget, then most areas are good for you.

    Assuming you'd rather walk, Prague 1 is the city centre and contains all the main sights. Needless tO Say it also has cafes, restaurants and anything else you need but the supermarkets are a little pricier than in other neighbourhoods. If you can find a good apartment on the border of Prague 1 in Prague 5, Prague 4 or Prague 2 you may find better deals.
