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...

Excellent location in the very heart of Old City, 50m from Staromestske square. We had triple room on on top floor with very small windows and no view at all. Keep in mind ordering rooms that there is NO elevator and steep stairs. Break was average. Small variety of food. When pans are empty it takes quite long to refill...

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.

We loved this gorgeous small hotel with just 16 rooms nestled in amongst Old Town Square. Walking distance to absolutely everything - the rooms are very comfortable, neat and clean! A little noisy from the street at night - particularly because of the Christmas Markets - but nothing too disturbing. Thoroughly recommend this charming hotel!

I have now had the pleasure of staying at the Cerny Slon (Black Elephant) twice. And, I love it more and more each time. This time, I visited with my aunt and uncle. They LOVED it!!! In fact, the only thing we didn't love was the we had to leave after just 2 nights. The location is incredible, and on...

This is by far one of my favorite hotels in Prague. The hotel is from the 14th century, located in the heart of Old Town Square, within walking distance of the museum, shopping, restaurants, many churches and transportation! Our room was on the 3rd floor (walk-up), which wasn't a bad walk up, just with suitcases it was a little slower...

This small hotel is just off the Old town square and an easy walk to most anywhere you want to go. The historic building is charming and the rooms are clean and bathrooms modern. It was cool for my stay so I could keep the windows closed, but for the light sleeper this could be a noisy location in the...

This hotel is in a great location, a few steps from the old town square. Everything is within walking distance for the reasonably fit walker. Staff was always friendly, room was very nice and the breakfast buffet was excellent. The only thing that wasn't charming about it was the fact that the church immediately across the narrow cobblestone road was...

This is a hotel in a building built in 1330-1340, in the heart of the old city, just drowning in medieval charm but fully modern where it counts, including wifi, and not cramped - not even the bathroom. It has a cozy, informal feel and is small enough to not overwhelm with touristy atrmosphere. Very helpful and friendly staff, a...

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.
