Train from Berlin to Prague and Prague to Budapest

My husband and I will be taking the train from Berlin to Prague end of June this year and after 3 days stay, from Prague to Budapest. What train station would we be arriving at and leaving from? Also, what fairly central area in Prague would be best to find a place to stay? Thanks.

The main railway station - Praha hlavni nadrazi...or Praha hl.n.

and don't be tempted buying your tickets from raileurope or similar resellers.

Berlin to Prague from German railways (92 days in advance) (29 euros)

Prague to Budapest from Czech railways (60 days I advance)(19 euros day train)

non changeable

Central area would be Prague 1...old town, or mala strana

I have a similar or follow up question - is there a large distinction in the class of ticket on the Czech train? We are looking at eTicket (42E), 2nd class (52E) and 1st class (80E). It's not clear to me the distinction of the eTicket... and I wonder, is the 1st class worth it on the Czech train? Anyone have any thoughts/experiences?

Thanks in advance!

Where are you getting those prices from? They are much higher than the real prices.
