Hi Marie, this is the best one in Prague. But be careful at the correct address. This mentioned exchange is close to the Old Town Square, where you can find a lot of other money changers, but who rob people.

EXCHANGE s.r.o.
Address: Kaprova 14/13 (entrance from Franz Kafka sq.)
Prague 1 - Josefov, 110 00
https://www.exchange.cz/contact
Maps here: http://bit.ly/EXCHANGE_Kaprova_Prague

Opening hours
Mo - Fr 9:00 - 20:00
Weekend 9:00 - 20:00

Sad to say, but there are a lot of tourist traps and hustlers in this area.

Someone else might know but as a visitor I used to get any amount of korun in assorted denominations, before I travelled, from my bank, usually a flat fee of $10.

That way you are ready to spend before you hit the pavement and then don't have to worry about getting cheated.

Speaking of that, avoid taxis if at all possible. You can get to near anywhere by tram or metro. Also, from the airport, buy a ticket from the vending machine outside, next to the bus stop, get on bus #119 and go til it stops at the Veleslavska metro. Once on the metro, you can look at the stops listed and go all the way into town and out, still with the same ticket. You are in the center within about 20 minutes for a dollar.

Have a good trip.
