Hi Paige,
Are you first time in Prague? If yes, then I would reccomend you to stay in Old town. Mala strana is a very beautiful area, but it's a bit far from all the other central sightseeings. And also there are more nightlife spots in the Old town.

I don't think it makes much difference since they are so close together. Old Town is far more touristy, But both are explorable by foot. Be sure to go up to the castle, as well.

Depends on what you're looking for. Mala Strana is classier but Old Town's (a bit) more fun. In any event, they're across the river from each other (about a 20 minute walk). Personally, I'd go for Mala Strana but I'm married with kids. Based on your picture, I bet you'd have more fun near Old Town.

Hi Paige,

Mala Strana and Old Town is the very downtown, easily walkable area, compact, relatively small. Both great locations. Close to all the main sights :-) You will be satisfied on both sides of the river.

Enjoy your stay.
