We stayed in Lesser Quarter and loved it. It is a perfect location for visiting everything. Not only can you walk to everything, but there are Trams available too. We found many good restaurants and shops to enjoy. We will definitely stay there the next time we visit.

Beautiful area of the city, nice for an evening stroll if the sun is shining. Beware of pickpockets when busy.

The atmosphere around the old streets of the Lesser quarter is much more relaxed and quieter than anywhere else in the city. There doesn't seem to be as many tourist groups marching by as there is in the old town. We had lunch in a few places around here and it was nice just to sit out in the sun... More

Stayed in the lesser quarter and had a great time, so much to see, but be prepared and take comfy shoes you do a lot of walking.

Nice are to walk though, though it feels a bit of a tourist trap. Having had several good meals in and near old town, we elected to not eat whilst there, and went back to other good places to eat. I don't know if the mid-river island is considered part of the lesser quarter, but it is worth going down... More

This historic quarter is close to all the Prague sites and has a great atmosphere. Our apartment in Trziste was fabulous and in walking distance to the castle, Charles bridge, restaurants and trams.

Cute shops, nice cafés, wonderful architecture and quirky little finds. It was fun to spot the houses that still bore their pre-numbered signs: how of the three violins, house of the two suns, house of the white swan, house of the medusa and so on. The gingerbread museum was a cute, free spot to dash through and grab a little... More

Had an amazing morning wandering around this place. we had no map and just walked, can't get lost as you end up back to Charles Bridge, it's easy to gage by looking at Prague castle. Stunning views, nice cafe finds, beautiful architecture….a must visit
