We have visited Prague on five previous occasions, and wanted a centrally located hotel to enjoy the final night of our 12 day road holiday before returning home. The two other hotels that we prefer were without rooms, and now I am happy to write that we have added Cerny Slon to our list of "favorite Prague hotels." The hotel... More

Perfect location near the city centre. Just 1 minute to the astronomical clock by walk. The room is big, clean and cozy. Staff is very kind. Nothing negative. I really suggest the hotel to everyone who would like to visit prague.

Found this gem snuggled in an alleyway in the corner of the Old Town Square. Felt like we were taken back to a 50's jazz club. Retro decor and ambience. They also feature live music, but we were a bit early that. Had a great tasting pizza and beer. Friendly staff and very affordable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

Spacious clean room in the middle of the city centre. The street noise can get too much, so bring ear plugs, or drink yourself into oblivion, just like the loud people below. Or both, so I can deal with that. Even though there is a menu for room service, it's not possible to get it. Called the reception and was... More

What a fantastic find in Prague! We would recommend Cerny Slon to anyone coming to the city.. seconds from the old town square, and other areas a stones throw away. We arrived early at about midday,and was delighted we could get straight into our room(which was superb,as we'd travelled from 3am!) When we booked the hotel,we received an email showing... More

This hotel is literally down an alley off the old town square, it's as central as you want. Very old style but easy check in and our rooms were ready on arrival (early). Spacious room, clean, with a decent bath and shower combo. It was still noisy at night with the odd drunk group walking passed but that's the pay... More

This hotel was just off the square opposite the Tyn church Old Town Square. so convenient and not far to walk anywhere. Previous reviews stated it was noisy, it may well be but not on our visit as they were working on the church so no bells. a bit noisy on the weekend with large parties but didn't put us... More

Fantastic meal had there, twice! Lovely setting. Lovely restaurant. Only thing i was not impressed with was the fact that they were the only restaurant we visited which put a service charge on the bill. I think tipping is up to the customer.

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.

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.
