Great location, reasonable prices, modern bathroom and clean spacious room. Restaurant was pleasant with prompt service of tasty meals. Unfortunately the cellar bar was not open, which was one of the attractions in the first place. Interesting building decor with lots of historical aspects - hence UNESCO listing. Highly recommend - only missing piece was the staff - they did... More

Stayed 1 night in April. Location is superb, right in the heart of the old town and next to the main square. Little difficult to find with the way Prague streets run, but decent old world hotel and traditional features. If you have mobility issues, not recommended as no elevators. Room on top floor, 4th, good sized considering the age... More

This hotel is in a fabulous location. it is noisy but most hotels in or near the square are not quiet. You must be on the first floor if you are not prepared to carry your bags up 3 double flights of uneven stairs. There is really no one to help you with bags and when you request the help... More

Really enjoyed my stay, the room was huge and it was reasonably quiet to say you are literally just off the Old Town square. Would definitely stay again. The only complaint I gave is that the staff weren't very friendly and were rather abrupt. Breakfast was nice too.

The location of this hotel is perfect, and we really enjoyed our stay there. The staff was courteous and helpful and the room was very nice - clean and with a huge bathroom. The breakfast was very good. I would absolutely stay here again.

Room spacious, clean, big bathroom, double bed was actually two single beds with wooden frames, so not really couple-friendly.... Breakfast: is basic, does the job. Location couldn't be better right behind the main square. At the weekend, the occasional group of young tourists might be quite noisy in spats. Service efficient, no fuss Price great value, 4 nights for 75€... More

I stayed at the Cerny Slon with my husband for a long weekend of 2 nights. The location is unbeatable, less than one minute walk from the main square and we didn't have to use the public transport in our whole stay. The receptionist are average. Not over friendly, but not rude either. The restaurant was not all that good... More

Personally i think this is a 3-star hotel. Pros: unbeatable location: literally 25 meters from Staroměstské náměstí (the central square) where the astronomical clock is. They take credit cards, their staff is multilingual and will help you with tours and will also store your luggage after check-out. Cons: no elevator, if you get a room in the top floor, you... More

Thank you very much for your stay in our hotel. It is true that the hotel is in the center of Prague, and you can get into all the interesting and historical sights on foot. Also the great thing is that the elevator will be built soon. Hope to see you again in our Hotel Černy slon. More

Hotel Cerny Slon far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were charming. The staff was pleasant, and the location was centrally located, just steps from the old town square. We stayed an extra day to enjoy both the beautiful city of Prague and Cerny Slon.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
