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. A continental breakfast was included in the price. There is also a lovely small bar and restaurant serving traditional czech...

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...

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!

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...

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.

Thank you for your stay in our hotel. We are glad you like the location. Iam sorry we dont have elevator but problem is The house itself is listed on the UNESCO heritage list, and we need lots of permission to build it. But now, in this time we are preparing to start construction this year.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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.
