Room was large and comfortable however we were under the impression our room was to be air conditioned. This wasn't so and we travelled at a extremely hot... More

Stayed at a triple room with my friends recently. Very happy with the location, service and breakfast. Very reasonably priced. The room was cosy, the beds good to sleep on. The only minuses are - absence of the elevator (one can get help with the luggage); also the loud chimes from the nearby cathedral might be troublesomes for some late... More

You cannot get a better location for a hotel if you are wanting a sightseeing trip to Prague. Just 20 yards from the Old Town Square and a short stroll to Wenceslas Square and the surrounding shops, bars and restaurants. The staff are very friendly and are very happy to help with directions and recommendations of restaurants etc. Rooms are... More

The location could not be better!! Right in the center of old town. Walking distance to everything. We requested a 3rd floor room b/c upper floor has a/c. It is a walk up but worth it! Very comfy and plenty of space. Large bathroom!! The only con would be it is a bit noisy at night. Otherwise I would highly... More

This hotel was excellent. Great location, literally 20m away from the Old Town Square and less than 5min from Wenceslas Square. Service was very good, from arranging a car from the station and to the airport, arranging a fan during hot days etc. Breakfast is very good, with cold cuts, cereals, yoghurt, cheeses etc. Only con was the noise coming...

If you are visiting Prague for the weekend or staying even longer, this is probably one of the best hotels you could stay at. It is smack bang in the middle of the main square with cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops all around. I visited with friends for a long weekend and was not disappointed. We arrived and got booked...

The Hotel Cerny Slon is located just off Old Town Square. Perfect location for exploring the beautiful city of Prague. It has a lot of traditional character and friendly staff. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. I found the room to be quite basic with very old fashioned cheap furniture. The front door is locked at about 11pm and you... More
