Oh Prague, you have won me over once again. On our most recent visit to Prague, we split our stay between Old Town and New Town. We wanted to experience a different part of town. Most tourists stay in Old Town, as they don’t realize what they are missing in New Town Prague and how close it really is. We stayed at the Miss Sophies Prague, which couldn’t have been a better choice.
You would think with a name like “New Town” it would be a new town without any history and charm. Well, New Town Prague is not new at all, it actually dates back to 1348. New Town, also known as Nové Město, is full of gorgeous historic buildings and squares. Wenceslas Square is in the heart of New Town which is full of restaurants, nightlife, and shopping. When we took the metro we’d get off at Muzeum, as this drops off right at Wenceslas Square.

We stayed at Miss Sophies Hotel in New Town for 5 nights, which is located right in New Town Prague. The location was perfect for exploring the city, within 10 minutes via tram we were in the heart of Old Town. We prefer to walk as it was only a 20-minute walk, this gave us the opportunity to check out local shops & restaurants.
Miss Sophies is located in a gorgeous historical building, but inside the room, it reminded me of something straight out of Crate & Barrel. The rooms have been decorated with refurbished furniture and unique decorations. I haven’t seen any other hotel like this, actually took a few ideas down for friends who love DIY projects. It’s the perfect place to stay while spending 3 days in Prague.
Make sure to stay for all-you-can-eat breakfast at Miss Sophies Hostel, which is located right across the street from Miss Sophies Hotel. The all-you-can-eat buffet for 150 CZK included fresh bread, cold meats and cheeses, jams, yogurt, granola, cereal, fresh fruit, juice, tea, and coffee (espresso/cappuccino). We opted to upgrade the breakfast to include hot brunch for 200 CZK, the servers walk around with a frying pan full of sausages, bacon, eggs, pancakes, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, and a daily special. Let’s just say we didn’t have to eat again until 4p.m.

After a day exploring Prague we often headed back to Miss Sophies Hostel for happy hour for 25CZK beers. Yes, you read that right, tasty Czech beer for $1.25 from 6pm-8pm every day in Sophies bar. This is a great place to meet other travelers here and share travel stories. If you don’t get back in time make sure to check out some of the beer gardens in Prague.
