Hotel Černý Slon is a 4-star hotel located in the historic city center of Prague, near the Old Town Square. Most of the city's main tourist attractions are located close to the accommodation, such as the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Spanish Synagogue with the Jewish Museum (5 walking minutes from the hotel), Charles Bridge (15 minutes), the Lesser Town, Prague Castle, and the rather modern Wenceslas Square with its multitude of boutiques, shopping centers, night clubs, and discotheques.

The 14th-century building that houses the hotel is part of the UNESCO world heritage list, and there is an original roof truss, one of the oldest in Prague and also in the whole Czech Republic. Due to its charm and its ideal location, only a 1-minute walk from the Old Town Square with its Astronomical Clock, the Church of Our Lady, all sorts of bars, shopping areas, souvenirs shops, and lots of tiny restaurants, Hotel Černý Slon is very popular among tourists from all over the world.

The cozy 4-star hotel in Prague makes travel easy by providing roundtrip airport and train shuttle service with advance request. Onsite amenities include complimentary wireless Internet access throughout the property. Hotel Černý Slon itself features a wine bar and restaurant.

My wife and I stayed for one night whilst doing a mini Europe trip - Czech Republic was our last stop. Although when we first arrived the receptionists could have worked on the "welcoming" of us guests, it was a stunning hotel in a fab location and certainly worth the money and another stay! Would highly recommend anyone to stay here!

We stayed here for a view of this beautiful city. The room was very large for a European hotel at this price. When we arrived, we wern't offered much information as to restaurants or how to get around. We found out we were on second floor with no lift and had no one to help with our baggage. The bathroom was spacious and beautiful done in blue tile. The breakfast was great & you were able to order omelletes and eggs which were prepared fresh. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, it was a great location just off Old Town Square.

My wife and I from Canada stayed here for 5 days in early June 2010. This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in anywhere considering the price. The location is fantastic. The rooms spacious, spotlessly clean, simple but confortable. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anybody looking for an excellent budget priced hotel in Prague.

An excellent location. Very historic. Room fine but quite noisy. Breakfast very basic. It would have been good for someone to have spoken at breakfast. Very much self service. Our room faced the passage between the church and the hotel - quite a lot noise from pedestrians. Reception very helful.

Fabulous location and charming decor. Overall it was a great experience. A few small criticisms - one front desk clerk's attitude bordered on surly; breakfast wait staff was more interested in setting up for lunch (at 9:30 am) than serving breakfast; off-duty staff seemed to hang out in the lounge and use the internet computer there which is intended for guests. Also, the small bar and cellar wine bar looked great but we didn't use them because there were too smokey.

Perfect location, if you want to be in the middle of action. The room was huge, very stylish (painted wooden ceilings!), very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was reasonable (pastry, cereals, eggs, cheeses, sausages, yogurts, jams, fruit). No elevator and no bellboy, so be ready to pull your luggage upstairs. The bothering thing was the noise from outside. We couldn't keep the windows closed because of hot weather (no AC), and the acoustics of the narrow lane was perfect. Every walking and talking outside sounded like it was in the room. Sure, it would be a problem in summer season only. In general - charming place with special atmosphere!

Ottima la posizione, l'hotel si trova proprio a pochissimi passi dalla piazza della citta vecchia (dove c'è il famodo orologio astronomico) e quindi in una zona centralissima che permette di raggiungere buona parte dei luoghi a piedi. Vicina anche la fermata della metropolitana. Inoltre ottima la pulizia delle camere, l'accoglienza e la disponibilità del personale alla reception. Unico neo è che non c'è ascensore .... Un po'scarsa la colazione, ma i prodotti usati sono di qualità più che buona. Consiglio a tutti questo hotel!

Struttura centralissima, permette di girare Praga a piedi in tutti i suoi quartieri. Palazzo storico, atmosfera medievale, camere spaziose anche se non pulitissime, colazione essenziale, consigliabile invece la consumazione di una cena tipica
