Had a meal in this very atmospheric restaurant in the centre of Prague, service was excellent and the food lovely all at a very reasonable price, 2 mains, large beer and a glass of wine only cost around £20, restaurant is part of the hotel but open to non residents and is very authentic, would highly recommend

We were heavily touted into this restaurant, but as we were in a rush, we went with it. The staff inside were pleasant and attentive. The food was nice, but nothing special. Mostly Czech menu from what I recall, but sorry to say that it doesn't really stand out.

My family stayed here and was beyond impressed with the amenities and staff. The location is great and beyond adequate. Our biggest complaint was the heat. We couldn't open our windows at night due to street noise, but the hotel offered a fan. The room is beautiful and close to a bunch of attractions.

If you are looking for a hotel 50 meters from the old square and from the world famous clock in Prague, consider Cerny Slon(Black Elefant). It's a small family run boutique hotel with 19 rooms.You will see the owner Petr Volejnik having his coffee in the bar and talking to his staff or guests.The staff is friendly and helpful,the restaurant...

Our weekend stay at Cerny Slon (apologies for English alphabet) was very nice with the hotel meeting our expectations. The hotel has character consistent with being in the middle of the old town. The vaulted ceilings in the dinning room with painted coats of arms is an example of the character (see picture). Our room was spacious with what looks... More

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

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.
