Excellent location not far from the old town square and astronomical clock. My single room on the second floor was clean and comfortable with a large modern bathroom (I had a slight problem with the wash basin - I had to let the tap run for ages before I got hot water). The breakfasts were good with a nice selection... More

The hotel is located just off the central square. Not an easy place to find (suggest you use a map not Google Navigation- it had no clue). The location is great for seeing all the sites - next to the square - not far from the Danube - and an easy bus ride to the castle. The hotel is very... More

This truly ancient hotel (ca. 1490) has a friendly staff, comfy rooms at reasonable prices, and the best location one could ask for in the heart of Old Praha. The hotel is about 50 yards off the Old Town Square next to the former Cathedral which is now a museum. It's like living in the Square without the noise and... More

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

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.
