Our hostess will be there to assist you with transportation to the Top hotel Praha.
To reach the conference site (TOP Hotel Praha) directly from the airport we recommend that you take microbus CEDAZ offering door-to-door service for 1-4 persons for a fixed price of 720 CZK. The CEDAZ stand is located in front of the Airport arrival exit (outside) to the right of the taxi stand.
It is also possible to use public transport: Board bus No. 119 which will take you from the airport to the metro (subway) station Dejvicka on metro line A (the green line). At Dejvicka board the subway train and travel to the Muzeum station stop. Get off the train there and transfer to the metro line C (the red line) and board the train travelling in the direction Háje.

At Chodov there is also a bus station where you will board bus No. 115 and travel to the stop Keblovská, which is located across the street from the conference venue - TOP Hotel Praha. Tickets for public transport cost 12 CZK and can be bought in the newspaper stand at the airport. The ticket price includes all transfers.
By taxi: Taxi fares in Prague start at 25 CZK base fare plus 22 CZK per one kilometre. If you arrange your cab with a taxi stand on the airport, it should get you to the hotel for a fixed price of 770 CZK (there is also a possibility to pay ahead by a card). Otherwise the prices are not easily predictable. It is likely that hotel taxis might offer different rates.
From the main train station Hlavni nadrazi or from Nadrazi Holesovice board the subway (metro line C) and proceed to Chodov station stop and get off the train there. At Chodov there is also a bus station where you will board bus No. 115 and travel to the stop Keblovská, which is located across the street from the conference venue - TOP Hotel Praha. Coming this way you need to purchase a ticket for public transport for 12 CZK which you can buy in a newspaper stand or in the yellow machine in the entrance hall to the subway.
