Cheers for Hotel Cerny Slon
My second lodging at the Cerny Slon, ten years apart. Though, ten years isn't long considering the building's foundation was set well over 600 years ago. I think the only homes we have that old in the United States are the cave dwellings of the Anasazi. Notwithstanding, the structure is in excellent shape, everything worked just fine, including wifi. The location is spectacular just off Old Town Square. The staff is kind, accommodating, helpful and very professional. And the small restaurant serves wonderful authentic Czech cuisine. In all, it's my favorite place to stay in my favorite European city. Cheers for Hotel Cerny Slon, The Black Elephant.

Excellent overall experience
Fantastic location only several hundred feet from Old Town Square. Very convenient to everything. Walking distance to Charles Bridge along the main shopping artery. Quaint hotel along cobblestone streets...and a gelato stand right outside! Our room had no air conditioning but the table fan with open window was enough. The only downside was the noise from the street at very late hours. The narrow street outside the hotel is a main path to/from the Square, and with lots of bachelor parties and European football fans (not to mention the Music Festival in the Square) there was always late night/early morning groups of people shouting and chanting on their way to the next pub. No fault of the hotel of course, and in all honesty, we just considered it part of the experience. The good outweighed the bad by far.

Comfort and Access in Old Town Prague
The Cerny Slon is an excellent choice for people wanting to stay in the Old Town. We had a very comfortable four day stay in an hotel that is literally located right next door to the Tyn Church. The buffet breakfast was good and the staff were helpful. The late night street noise was an issue but we were so tired at the end of the day that it didn’t matter much. We would definitely stay here again.
