Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Cerny Slon hotel for a week in august and we loved our stay! Our room was always clean with fresh towels. The location of the hotel is in the center of old town so you can walk around the city instead of taking a bus/taxi. Also, we could always find our hotel because... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and this hotel is in a great location, just a 2 minute walk to the main square. The hotel has a lift to the 2nd floor, so I guess you need to walk a few stairs if you are located on the 3rd floor. We were on the 1st floor. Yes, some evenings it... More

Literally steps from the Old Town Square. So very convenient.An easy walk, 400 m from the subway(Staromestska )stop. Easy walk to the Charles Bridge through winding cobblestone streets( 10 minutes). Close to multitudes of excellent restaurants in any direction. Excellent breakfast. Just 16 rooms in an 16th century building. Second floor rooms have 15 ft ceilings decoratively hand painted.

The hotel has a very good location, it is directly next to one of the main squares and very comfortable place to explore the city, but in summer the city doesn't sleep, I guess. Closing the windows didn't help, it is in VERY noisy place: drunk voices, shouting people, music on the square and SEGWAYs (I think I hate them... More

The hotel is located very close to the center square of prague (about 2 minutes walking) with all the restaurants, the old small streets with their tourist shops, very close to Carlov Most (Carl bridge) and in walking distance from the castle. The facilities at the hotel is to be expected. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The room... More

Wonderful meal at a beautiful restaurant. We happened upon it while discovering the small streets behind Tyn Cathedral. Having 2 teen girls with us the wifi was "important" and worked well. Our party of 5 ordered a mixed grill plate, a small salad, pasta, schnitzel, and fish. Our total bill that includes a bottle of wine, and several soft drinks... More

Hotel Cerny Slon is right off the main old town plaza in Prague, adjacent to the grand tower that is featured in most photos of Prague's old town plaza. It's a beautiful older building with more of a house feel than a hotel feel--wood furniture and fixtures, tile bathroom (with giant tub), double windows to keep out the noise. I... More

Great Hotel just off the Old Town Square. Good welcome. Comfortable room. I think the only slight negative was the breakfast which was actually Ok but just a little lacking. It appeared that the buffet food was put out but once it was gone........... Only hot option was local sausage cooked in brine, streaky bacon and scrambled eggs which were... More

Location was central, just off of Old Town square, which was good and bad--lots of late night noise from roving bands of foreign youth. It was annoying that we were quoted a price in euros, but billed in the local currency at a (very non-competitive) exchange rate of the hotel's choosing. Left enough of a bad taste that I wouldn't...

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.
