“Charming!” Perfect hotel in a perfect location! The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished with period furniture and accessible via lift or lovely stairway. The bathrooms are clean and modern. The breakfast buffet was adequate and the staff purchased gluten free bread for us each day. The hotel’s restaurant is cosy and the chef was very accommodating in providing a gluten free a meal. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Thanks to everyone for a pleasant stay. If I return to Prague I will not stay anywhere else.

“Warm and welcoming!” It was chilly and windy and after a few kilometers of sightseeing it was so comforting to return to Cerny Slon! We had a three bed bedroom, it was clean and spacious and comfortable. Staff were friendly, the restaurant offer warm hearty and delicious food and less 10% for guests. The Cerny Slon is right at the old town square, few steps from the old Jewish Quarter, the astronomical clock and not far from Charles Bridge. I can recommend the hotel.

“Lovely hotel” So charming! The building is historical and very interesting, but the hotel is still very comfortable. The positives: perfect location right off the main square, historical, charming and interesting building, good beds, comfortable room (nr.17, triple room was large), a nice breakfast and very pleasant staff. (Warning – Don’t stay here if you have trouble with uneven staircases and steps. The churchbells next door ring at 7 am (didn’t bother us as we wake up early anyway). Some nighttime noises from inebriated people passing by since the hotel is so close to the main square. Just so you know!) I found the hotel very charming with a perfect location and would stay here again the next time I return to Prague!

“Best location and Best Value in Golden Prague!” If you are looking for a hotel 50 meters from the old square and from the world famous clock in Prague, consider Cerny Slon (Black Elephant).
It’s a small family run boutique hotel with 19 rooms.You will see the owner Petr Volejnik having his coffee in the bar and talking to his staff or guests.The staff is friendly and helpful, the restaurant is great and so is the value for your money!!!!
This is our 15th year staying at the 13th century Cerny Slon and we are happy to report that last year the city finally gave this heritage property the permission to install an elevator!

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Cerny Slon hotel for a week in August and we loved our stay! Our room was always clean with fresh towels. The location of the hotel is in the center of old town so you can walk around the city instead of taking a bus/taxi. Also, we could always find our hotel because we followed the towers! So if we got lost then we just looked up and found our way “home”
You could have breakfast buffet for 8€ so you could decide if you wanted to have breakfast at the hotel or not. We tried the breakfast the first day and it was very good, they had Crossant, ham, cheese, yogurt, cereal, milk, fruit, juice, coffee and tea.
The staff was lovely and very helpful!
I highly recommend people to stay at the Cerny Slon hotel if you are visiting Prague

“Perfect location wonderful hotel”. Literally steps from the Old Town Square. So very convenient.An easy walk, 400 m from the subway (Staromestska) stop. Easy walk to the Charles Bridge through winding cobblestone streets (10 minutes). Close to multitudes of excellent restaurants in any direction. Excellent breakfast. Just 16 rooms in an 16th century building. Second floor rooms have 15 ft ceilings decoratively hand painted. Floor above the ground floor was large, airy and very comfortable – modern bathroom/shower.

“Perfect location; beautiful older hotel” Hotel Cerny Slon is right off the main old town plaza in Prague, adjacent to the grand tower that is featured in most photos of Prague’s old town plaza. It’s a beautiful older building with more of a house feel than a hotel feel–wood furniture and fixtures, tile bathroom (with giant tub), double windows to keep out the noise. I felt like a guest in someone’s house rather than an inmate in yet another vanilla hotel chain. Stay here – you won’t be sorry.
Dar Sigfusson, Oregon (US) 13. 7. 2016
“Awesome Location and Hotel” Loved this hotel. What a great location, literally around the corner from the old town square – the center of activity in Prague. Comfortable “small” rooms, friendly staff, great food, reasonably priced. If I ever get a chance to return to Prague I definitely will try and stay here again.
Paul M., Reno (NV) 15. 3. 2016
This hotel was fantastic, the room was great, the staff were very efficient, friendly and were able to book excursions and provide a taxi transfer to the airport and back, the breakfast had a great selection of good quality products and the evening meals were good value and hearty and filling!!!

“The Cerny Slon is an excellent hotel” A few years ago we ate at the Cerny Slon and we were so impressed that we came back and stayed here for the weekend for my husband’s 60th Birthday last weekend.
The hotel is in a brilliant location just off the main square. We emailed the hotel a few days before and requested 1st floor rooms as someone in our party was having a few health problems and our request was met. The rooms were lovely and spacious and comfortable with paintings on the ceiling. The breakfasts were very good with plenty of choice for everyone. We ate twice in the hotel on an evening and the food was top notch. All the staff from the bar and restaurant and reception and the cleaning lady were so helpful and friendly. The hotel is beautiful and so full of character. I can highly recommend this hotel and my husband had a fantastic birthday weekend here. We have been to Prague many times and this has to be the best hotel by far. Will definitely be back again very soon. Thank you to one and all.
Chris N., Bingley (UK) 15. 12. 2015
The location was perfect. I appreciated the age of the hotel and how well it had been taken care of. I don’t think I could have asked for more. The room setup was perfect for us. Triple room 1 double bed, 1 twin. The free breakfast was great and just what we needed to start out day of walking.
Malinda, Oregon City (US) 6. 9. 2013
I liked everything about this hotel from the staff to the rooms and location, the best place out of my 6 weeks in Europe as far as the staff are concerned.
Rosalie, Arncliffe (AU) 19. 5. 2013
Wonderful, helpful staff who went out of their way to accomodate. Very good food. Nice comfortable restaurant with wine bar. Very charming old building. Dead center of Old Town area. Great for city walkers.
Vicki, Upper Marlboro (US) 28. 7. 2013
Fantastic location in the Old Town right next to the Church. Our room was big, clean and spacious with windows opening up onto the church.
Sacha, London (GB) 25. 7. 2013
Eccellente l’utilizzo di un palazzo del XIV secolo ad uso hotel.Siete a 100 metri dalla piazza della Citta Vecchia con tutto il fascino del luogo meno la confusione e gli schiamazzi.L’hotel si trova in una viuzza tranquilla.Il personale e gentilissimo e la sala colazione/ristorante e molto accogliente e sempre di sapore “antico”.
Michele, VARESE (IT) 24. 7. 2013
We loved the location and atmosphere of the Hotel Cerny Slon. We had only one night to spend in Prague and it was a perfect location and atmosphere. The staff was also very helpful in planning out sightseeing.
Andrea Bjornlie, Santa Monica (US) 26. 11. 2012
We liked its quirkiness and charm and its traditional feel. The location was excellent just off the central square of old town,evening meal was available with a varied menu and breakfast included well cooked eggs and delicious breads for toasting and selection of teas. Staff were friendly and we would certainly stay there again!
Margaret Beck, Whitehaven Cumbria (GB) 1. 11. 2012
I loved the room: it was well-appointed with comfortable beds and a very clean and modern bathroom. I liked that the windows opened for fresh air. The breakfast was the best I have had at a hotel with breakfast. The hot items were welcomed and the selection changed daily!!! The location was amazing! It is close to everything and truly wonderful!!! I cannot wait to go back!!!
Roxanna Hayes, Bellingham (NL) 22. 10. 2012
Location. It sits in the middle of the Old Town square, next to the TYN Catholic Church. Convenient to go anywhere. The room is clean and comfortable. From the room window, you can see activities on the Old Town street. Medieval architectural built with updated facility. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Charlotte Lin, Plano (US) 9. 10. 2012
Great family run Hotel.Very friendly,wonderful staff and best location in Prague. The Bonus is that the kitchen is also wonderful,so you can have lunch or dinner in the medieval dining room. Location is 25 meters from the old square.You can walk everywhere.Lenka or Michael or Petra at the front desk will help you with any reservation or a guide. We have been coming every year from it’s opening.
Nick Florian, Toronto (CA) 27. 9. 2012
Tolle Lage. Das Frühstücksbuffet war in Ordnung (Wurst, Käse, Eier, Obst, Gebäck, Müsli etc.) Das Styling des Hotels ist eher antik, mir persönlich gefällt es sehr gut. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber. Wer einen Parkplatz benötigt: Das Auto wird von einem Angestellten abgeholt und zum vereinbarten Termin wieder gebracht. Tolles Preis-LeistungsVerhältnis.
Charline Zandanell, Weiz (AT) 21. 9. 2012
