  • 6.0.Good

    Lovely hotel in a great location with a nice breakfast. Only complaint is that my credit card was charged for about $36 and the front desk could not tell me what it was for.....I could not resolve this before we had to leave to go home. There was no record of the charge at the desk. Very shady. Nice place to stay if you don’t mind fraudulent charges....totally unacceptable for a hotel to charge your credit card and have no record of it at the desk. I froze the account and resolved it with the credit card company but it is enough to strongly not recommend this hotel. It’s basically like being pick pocketed. Prague is full of lovely places to stay where this isn’t an issue.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Great location but very noisy

    I’d say this is a 2.5 star hotel; not really deserving of a 4 star rating. Admittedly, this hotel is really well situated, steps from Old Town Square. It’s also a historic building with lots of charm. Again, it’s located in an ideal location and close to everything. And in many ways, I think they bank and rely on that. I typically don’t write reviews but given the price they charge, I wanted to give folks some additional information when looking at hotels. However, having a room by the stairs kept me up. I woke up throughout the night and would wake up early due to the noise in the lobby. I could hear conversations and the phone ring at 2-3 in the morning. You can also smell the food from the restaurant immediate below. So if you’re sensitive to smell as I am, you should consider staying elsewhere. So needless to say, this all added up to an unpleasant stay, unfortunately. I asked to change to a different room but they said they were booked up. Prague is not of my favorite cities to visit and I know I’ll be back. Just not to this particular hotel.

    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.

    Excellant location. very clean. staff was helpful when needed but breakfast buffet left something to be desired. Intermittent wi-fi-and not up to date computer facilities. ( Windows xp and no printer) but all in all I would go back there, but I will never recommend Prague as a place where a single women should go.

    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.
