The Ultimate Gay Travel Guide
The Gay Passport is your complete Gay Travel Guide. Looking to Drink, Play or Sleep we have reviews to help. Award-winning & Updated 2021.
Prague boasts a beautiful historic Old Town, centuries of culture, and some of the most lively (and affordable) nightlife in Europe. It also happens to have the biggest and best gay scene in Central and Eastern Europe, covering everything from traditional pubs to trendy hipster joints, basement bars, sprawling cruising dungeons, and megaclub parties.
Accommodation here is cheap by default, especially if you visit outside of the summer and Christmas peak seasons. The truly high-end 5-star hotels will not cost much less than their counterparts elsewhere in Europe, but once you get to mid-range you start seeing a significant drop in prices.
Upmarket design-led boutique hotels in the 4-star range abound. Hostels cater to a large backpacker crowd and are becoming increasingly sophisticated, with some really cool options available.
♥ “Home away from home” vibe
♥ Prague’s best gay sauna just a couple of minutes away on foot
♥ Convenient cooking and laundry facilities
Hotel Residence Spalena features 23 modern, well-equipped apartments in a great central location. Sauna Babylonia, the largest and most popular gay sauna in town, is less than five minutes away, and there is a metro station (Národní třída, Line B) just a couple of steps away from the hotel door.
Every apartment has a kitchenette, which comes with a stove, fridge, microwave, and washing machine. Studios, two-person apartments, and five-person apartments are available, with the latter being a particularly good deal for groups of friends. All of them are decorated in a simple but tasteful style that feels more like a residential apartment than a hotel. The Duplex two-person apartment is particularly pleasant and spacious.
This is very much apartment-style accommodation, so there are none of the usual hotel facilities. In other words, it’s ideal for people who like to feel at home wherever they travel and for longer stays in the city.

With a full width of 3.28 meters, Clementin has the unique boast of being based in the narrowest preserved house in Prague. The building dates back to the 14th century but has been recently renovated with cool, contemporary interiors.
There are only nine rooms at the hotel, so there is a true boutique vibe. The rooms are on the smaller side (as can be expected with the narrowest building in the city), but they are all incredibly comfortable and clean. All have stylish furniture and high-quality amenities.
The hotel has a lovely terrace on the street and serves a good buffet breakfast. However, the best thing about Clementin is perhaps the friendly and attentive staff, especially as, with only nine rooms to serve, they can really focus on helping you make the most of your trip.
Clementin has an exceptional location at the very heart of Prague’s touristy Old Town. Within a five-minute walk of the hotel, you can reach Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, and several gay venues like Friends, Cafe Bar Flirt, and Sauna Babylonia.
