Hotel Černý Slon - Prague
The location of this hotel is the best in Prague, right off the Old Square. This also means that it can be noisy on those summer nights when the windows are open to keep the room cool. But the pluses generally outweigh the minuses. The staff is pleasant and helpful, the included breakfast is good, and the small bar is pleasant. I was traveling alone and felt safe and comfortable. And Prague is a very special place- a city of music, a concert or 2 every day somewhere in the city, a city of history and beauty, a city of great beer!

Rude front desk be warned
No a/c in rooms on first and second floor. Front desk women very rude . I checked out at 11:06 am and couldn't use the elevator to bring heavy luggage down cause key wouldn't work in elevator . I kindly asked front desk to bring elevator down cause my luggage inside she said I called you at 1030 told you check out is 11am . I said it's 1106 am . She huffed said now I have to make another key cause you didn't listen to me . I said it's 1106 and you only said check out is 11am that's all she said . I said listen if your going to have attitude I'll walk the luggage down stairs rather than being scolded by rude woman on my vacation. Was on 28 day vacation 12 countries by far the worst most unfriendly front desk out of any hotel I stayed in . The others treated me like gold because they want good reviews. Oh I forgot I inquired about a taxi to airport she said you should tell me day before not now . I said no problem I'll use uber if you don't have anybody she then quickly said I have and he's right here the taxi driver he was sitting in chair two feet away so why complain I didn't book day before. Word of advice use uber 1/3 the price of their guy and you don't get lectured . I never complained about a hotel before and I am a major gold member many hotels I travel the world.

Brilliant location Old Town Square
Excellent location!! As it's so central to the Old Town Square it can be a little noisy late at night but so worth it, would definitely stay again.

Atmospheric Old Town Hotel...with one complaint
Fabulous place to stay in the heart of Prague old town, an atmospheric 14th century house close by the Tyn church and the lively Old Town Square. Plenty to see and do within walking distance but also a surprisingly peaceful location. Everything in this tasteful hotel is of excellent quality; friendly staff, warm spacious room, comfortable bed, excellent buffet breakfast spread in the vaulted dining room (apart from the coffee, but we learnt that Prague is generally not a place for coffee lovers!). Overall a memorable holiday...but with one complaint which rather spoiled it at the end. The hotel quoted the room price in euros - 80 euros a night, 4 nights total 320 euros. When I checked out I was informed I could pay with my card only in Korunas, which sounded fine to me according to all the advice I'd read about which currency to use. However, the bill was converted from 320 euros to 8320 Korunas, which was 540 Korunas more than the currency exchange rate of the day, in effect a 6.5% surcharge! The pricing in euros is therefore quite dishonest. Had I known I would have taken cash euros to pay, saving £20. I don't know if this is a common practice of Czech hotels...but be warned!
