The location could not be better!! Right in the center of old town. Walking distance to everything. We requested a 3rd floor room b/c upper floor has a/c. It is a walk up but worth it! Very comfy and plenty of space. Large bathroom!! The only con would be it is a bit noisy at night. Otherwise I would highly...

This hotel was excellent. Great location, literally 20m away from the Old Town Square and less than 5min from Wenceslas Square. Service was very good, from arranging a car from the station and to the airport, arranging a fan during hot days etc. Breakfast is very good, with cold cuts, cereals, yoghurt, cheeses etc. Only con was the noise coming...

If you are visiting Prague for the weekend or staying even longer, this is probably one of the best hotels you could stay at. It is smack bang in the middle of the main square with cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops all around. I visited with friends for a long weekend and was not disappointed. We arrived and got booked...

The Hotel Cerny Slon is located just off Old Town Square. Perfect location for exploring the beautiful city of Prague. It has a lot of traditional character and friendly staff. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. I found the room to be quite basic with very old fashioned cheap furniture. The front door is locked at about 11pm and you...

Right off Old Town Square, the location cannot be beat. The room was very nice with a really good bed and the bathroom was well stocked with towels and toiletries. The breakfast was very good. The only small issue was the need to ring to be let into the hotel after 11PM, I always felt I was waking up the...

Stayed for 3 nights in May 2014 & couldn't have been happier with our choice! Arriving in the evening after 15 hours of travel, the hotel arranged for a private car to pick us up which eliminated the stress of getting into the Old town from the Airport. He took us right up to the door and carried our bags...

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.
