Super location, just off Old Town Square, helpful staff and friendly atmosphere. Lovely breakfast and free wi-fi connection in the hotel. The room was absolutely spotless and provided everything we needed including the most amazing ceiling!

My partner and I stayed in this hotel on a 4 day city break to Prague. The hotel was pleasant and clean with very helpful staff. Room was a good size and also had a hairdryer, tv and mini bar.

I was on a long layover and needed to find a place to stay two nights in Prague. I was planning on getting around by foot, so I wanted to be sure I had a good "home base" to return to periodically throughout the day while I was touring around. I found Hotel Cerny Slon on TripAdvisor (as usual), and... More

Great atmosphere, exceptionally tasty meals and friendly staff...what more could you ask? If in Prague, definitely have a meal at this restaurant. If we visit Prague again, we will make sure we stay at the hotel, too.

Couldn't have picked a better hotel for the location alone - it's right next door to the main square and not too far from the bridge - which btw you should definitely check out at sunset...wow! The rooms were ok, a little bigger than most other rooms in Europe and quite nice decor if not a little dated. The only... More

This hotel is a beautiful, historical (circa 1300's) hotel in the heart of Prague's Old Town district. We stayed in a triple room that was on the top floor (64 stairs, not that we counted). It was a delightfully appointed room. The street noise was a bit loud, but nothing that truly bothered us. We were able to come and... More

The Cerny Slon is charming and old with clean modern bathrooms. The view from our room was great and you cannot beat the location. The breakfast was wonderful too. No air conditioning, but that's our only mini complaint.

Stayed here for 3 nights in December. The location is perfect right next to Old Town, and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to see. Though the streets are busy and noisy we found that with the windows shut the noise was blocked out well. The room was clean enough and comfortable. Breakfast was okay but not really... More
