4) Terminals: four (UK flights arrive / depart from Terminal 1).
5) Distance from city centre: 20 km (around 30 min).
6) Use the ATMs in the arrivals hall to get Czech crowns rather than changing money at the airport (exchange offices are overpriced).
7) Try to avoid eating at Prague airport (overpriced).
Prague public transport buses and the special Airport Express bus line offer a budget alternative for travelling from the airport to the city center. For the quickest transport to the city center or the nearest metro station (airport is not directly accessible by train or metro) we advise using bus route no.119 which will take you to Metro A Dejvická. The hotel is located 300m directly west of the Dejvická Metro station.
