We stayed in the Hotel Cerny Slon last year, and, having just discovered this website I felt impelled to pass comment.
I can honestly say that this hotel was one of the best small independants that I have stayed in anywhere in the world. The staff were excellent, they arranged a pick-up for us from the airport. The building itself is beautiful and really gives you a sense of being in Prague rather than just in another tourist hotel.
When we first entered our room I was totally bowled over. We were on the top floor and the ceiling rose into a point and was laced by beautiful wooden beams going up 5-10 metres. There were french windows opening onto the square below and I spent many hours sitting in the open window, beer in hand, watching the hustle and bustle below. The bathroom was lovely and the mini-bar was cheap. The bed was rather creaky but once you have enjoyed some fab local beer it didnt tend to be a problem!
There were times when it was slightly noisy (especially as there were plenty of stag dos around) but surely this is part and parcel of staying in such a central location?
I was delighted by the hotel and feel very privelaged to have stumbled across it when searching for somewhere to stay. I would recommend it to anyone even though the stairs are a bit of a killer!!
