I'm planning to visit in Feb & my hotel will only give me a free breakfast :( can locals suggest a budget restaurants for dinner near Ostas hotel, Prague?

Answer the question

Usually the free breakfasts are hearty and I used to make a sandwich for lunch out of a breakfast roll, sliced cheese and meat.
Your hotel is sort of northeast of the Old Town, main part of the shopping district, so the prices will be higher, the closer you get to it. Visit the Vinohrady neighborhood for nice places (Metro C to I P Pavlova or A to Namesti Miru). But it seems to me that there are little places all over Prague with pretty standard menus, lunch being less than dinner, of course. Must haves are garlic soup, great for the cold weather and gulas/goulash, a tasty stew made with papricka and always with a side of dumplings on the plate. Beware of the homemade lemonade--it is water with a little syrup in it. Trams and metro take you anywhere you want to go but never use a taxi. They are all crooks. You may want to look at my website for more ideas: uniquepraguetours.com Be sure to dress warmly and have a knit hat and gloves. Have fun....

Hi, Priya Jidelna Světozor and Lidová jídelna Těšnov are the cheapest restaurants in prague.

Hi Gorkem, just wondering if it's near Ostas?
Not really! Probably the "Lidová jídelna Těšnov", its ca 20 minutes walk, but its not nice route, goes along big roads, nothing comfortable for pedestrians. "Jidelna Světozor" is in the centre at the Wenceslas square

Thanks Ralda for clubbing it all together for me. :) just a quick question, will language be a challenge for me? Is English widely spoken?
Hi, in Prague almost people in age under 40 speak english (probably not excellent language, but for basic conversation its OK) Maybe in the typical local czech restaurant you´ll have small problems if the staff is old man (especially pubs - brasseries that have no website. These pubs are neraby your stay and are live "open-air museum" :))) )
