Many of us choose to work this way these days with ties to the physical office not as important as they once were. You might need to check your emails between meetings, tie up a few loose ends online at the end of a day or simple want a change of scenery but finding the perfect spot for a bit of surfing can be tricky. And according to Fast Company Prague, Czech Republic is the second best place in the world, yes the world to go to work remotely when you take into account factors like internet data speed, the cost of housing and food, and local weather conditions.
There are several hundred public Wi-Fi spots dotted across the city which is grand if you’re going about your day-to-day but if you need to work remotely with the laptop you’ll need a good lobby or coffee shop to set-up camp in. There are a few vitally important things when looking for a place with free Wi-Fi to work which are:
- A good strong free Wi-Fi connection
- Plugs to charge laptops and phones
- Good coffee
All of the venues selected below tick all the boxes and are spread out around the city to give you an option for all situations. Make sure to enhance the list with some suggestions of your own in the comments. We’ll keep this list updated and add to it so don’t be shy to add new ones you find.
Prague is one of the best places to work remotely in the world and this place proves that. You can pay a daily rate to head into Impact Hub and set up camp for the day around like-minded creatives, devs and entrepreneurs. One of a few co-working spaces in Prague, this place tops the list for several reasons – it’s awesome coffee bar, the deadly break-out zones, the airy space, the private cubby rooms, the presentation rooms, the Wi-Fi and the fact you’re sharing space with other hard workers from all over the world. Defintely worth it.
You’ll feel right at home here if you consider yourself a hipster. If not then you still won’t be disappointed as the food here is incredible and the staff are very accomodating. It’s hidden away and looks like nothing special on the outside but it’s a real gem of a coffee corner. Beer on tap too if the day flies by while working away sipping your macha lattes.
It’s a hostel but up there with one of the best hangouts in Prague if you’re looking for super-fast Wi-Fi. They play great tunes all day – Mosaic House is perfect if you want to work remotely in a place with amazing energy and a hub for mixing with people from all over the world.
This cafe is teeny tiny but well worth the visit. What I love most about this place is – it is dog friendly. Anywhere that allows dogs has to be amazing.
If you’re looking for something less hipster than Cafe Lounge is the spot. Known for their amazing breakfasts, its the best place in Prague to go and start your day. They serve up quality beans via pour over, chemex, espresso machine and french press, and they even give you a little piece of paper with their shop logo on it for tasting notes – a nice touch.
This place is always packed – if you’re looking to get a seat then I advise you head in after lunch when you’ll be guaranteed one. They roast their own beans which is a sign that these guys know their stuff when it comes to coffee. Great intimate vibes, great coffee and great Wi-Fi, what more could you ask for?
Nacafe has an awesome couch area downstairs which is the perfect place to settle down for a few hours. They’re open basically all day which is great if you get bored of drinking coffee you can add a little spike to your drink!
This stunning eclectic hangout is the ideal location to find a quiet little corner and get stuck into work and get inspired. They have a great variety of coffees and sell a load of cool arty products as well as lovely cakes and treats.
Arguably the best coffee in Prague – this place is super hipster. It’s always really busy too, which is a great sign. Their food menu is also well-known so you’ll be spoilt for choice. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed and you’ll get cosy pretty quickly if you have a lot of work to get through. You’ll spot plenty of others doing exactly the same thing!
Known for their incredible staff, Wi-Fi, coffee and award winning interior, La Bohéme is the perfect and the very best place to set up camp if you’re a complete coffee geek and drink endless amounts of caffeine and get a ton of work done.
