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

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.

This hotel is excellent value for money and in the perfect location. The amenities are simple but has everything you need. I can't comment enough on how good the location is, we could walk to most places from here. The only criticism is that some staff were not friendly. One receptionist came across quite rude. For a small hotel you... More

Hotel is located 1 min. walk from Old Town Square and just behind the Church of Our Lady before Týn. Perfect location for walking old town and finding restaurant. But if you expect someone pick you up by car,it turns the worst location because of narrow road and many tourist walking by. I like the room with the high ceiling.... More

Had a great time at this hotel. Room was very comfortable, complimentary breakfast was great, and service exceptional. Would recommend this to any American visiting Prague. There is no elevator and as in all of Europe, the first floor is actually the second floor. You are within walking distance to virtually everything in Old Prague. Hotel will send your vehicle...

We ate here twice recently (mid-September) and had very nice meals. Menu had both traditional Czech food and options for vegetarians. Service was friendly and attentive. Prices I felt were reasonable. Our Tunisian server spoke 4 languages! I can't comment on the hotel aspect because we didn't stay there but the location is fantastic.

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.
