“Great Value for the Area”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

II stayed at this property with friends over New Year's Eve. Its a small, apartment like complex with little to zero amenities. However, the location is great, right smack in the center. The rooms are clean (although a bit bare and lackluster in design). Front desk is very helpful. And the pricing is convenient if you prefer to spend your vacation money on useful things such as food and drinks! One tip: skip the one star continental free breakfast and go to a nearby bakery for your morning snack. If you plan to spend most of your time outside of the hotel, then, there is really nothing wrong with this property. Trust me, if it was good enough for 5 pretentious girls from Los Angeles, it should be good enough for most people :)

As a party, we stayed in two deluxe rooms, one for 3 (room 6) and one for 2 (room 4). Rooms 4 had a larger lounge area with two settees, overloooking a small side street. The separate inner bedroom was away from any potential noise of the street and we were well rested. The lounge room had an attached kitchen area next to the lounge (open plan), with a fully functional fridge, freezer and oven. There was plenty of room available. Room 6 had a separate kitchen and small in comparison with the open plan kitchen in room 4. However, it was fully functional also. Room 6's dining area was included in a bedroom area. As one of the bedrooms overlooked a thoroughfare, there was a degree of noise late at night according to one friend.
The location of the hotel was ideal - near enough to the square where there is an Easter market - and near enough to the Charles Street Bridge (Karlov).
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was eaten at the adjoining hotel - a combination of a typical continental breakfast, with with a degree of cooked food too. There is access to a computer for those who wish to book on-line for their flight / check emails, etc. Security into the building was impressive - a locked front door, leading to a locked gated door, leading to another inner 'front' door and finally, your own bedroom door (for rooms 4 and 6 at least).
I would definitely contemplate booking this hotel again due to its location and friendliness, and a reasonable price too.

we stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during winter, got some winter discount and for that money (app. 50euro) it was ok. I wouldnt pay more in high season because its not worth the money. however, the location is very central and therefore probably expensive. The room was ok, the gates were ridiculous but we didnt mind, we liked the medieval ambiance. I have to admit that all our complaines were solved immediatelly and politely. Staff speaks good english. The breakfast was very poor, cheap stuff, no taste. I was quite disappointed, I expected more from the pictures on net and references here.

I highly recommend this hotel. The location is perfect and the ambiance is unbelievable. Take a left out of the hotel and a quick right to walk to the Vltava River and the Prague Castle. Take two lefts and you will wind your way to Old Town Square. My friend and I went for 9 days for a girlfriends trip and had an amazing time in Prague and the Hotel Black Star. We had a two-level room with the bedroom and full bath on the 2nd floor and a kitchenette, living area and half bath on the first. Our outside terrace and table with chairs truly made this hotel room for like an amazing apartment.

I so miss the smiling faces, the wonderful warmth and comfort that this hotel offered and I very much miss Prague. I left my heart there.

We stayed here for a 5 nights month ago. Black Star has got excelent location, Old Town Square and Charles Bridge really just around a corner, Prague castle about 10minutes by tram. We were so surprised with a huge room ( no. 4 ) !!! It was so amazing, this is really not a typical hotel room it is like your living room at your home. Very comfortable, very clean. Unfortunately we didnt check the other rooms because they were occupied but as receptionist said, they are all the similar. Staff is very friendly, smiling and helpful - this is how the check in to the hotel after the 5h in car should look like. Breakfast serving till 10 a.m. but we did not wake up before 11 a.m. so we were going directly to the lunch :))) We can recommend restaurant „U Golema“ about 10 minutes by walk serving typical czech food.

Was travelling on my own in Sep09 and first time in Prague. Found this hotel on the internet. Never regretted my choice. The service employees were very helpful. The room was fanstastic! Had a great view of the streets and the inner courtyard. Nice decor, comfortable and clean. The location is excellent! Located in between and within easy walking distance to the Charles Bridge/Prague Castle and Old Town/New Town. I had a great stay there! Would definitely book the same place if I were there again!

Picked this seemingly quaint hotel from the pictures on the internet site..definitely great ..excellent location, but in the hot summer months that is about all it has going for it.
Arrived 16th July for a one night stay...first impressions, quaint & charming.huge two bedroom suite..the room (no: 1) was exceptionally hot upon entering.. hotter inside than out...no air conditioning, only one pedestal fan to cool this huge area, totally useless..
The beds had the usual thick heavy doona on it (why in the summer can they not provide a top sheet)
Many cobwebs and a serious damp problem in one corner of the room
Even though there were two sets of windows in each frame, being the tourist season you could clearly hear the chatter and noise out on the street...but that is normal for this time of the year.
The shower was a joke....!!! ok for a smallish person (me :) but a normal size male would hardly fit in..he would have to .walk in & back out, no room to turn around or raise the arms :)
Breakfast !! pathetic....fresh fruit consisted of 6 green apples & 1 wrinkled skin orange, the usual boiled egg, something that resembled a mixed packet of diced vegetable, anemic looking frankfurters floating in greasy water and scrambled eggs plus the usual cold cuts, cheese, bread etc
Do yourself a favour, at this time of the year choose a quaint hotel in Old Town that has air conditioning. :)
No lift - but then most of the small 3* hotels are the same

I am an avid TA browser..and really value and appreciate peoples comments...always check out TA before booking any accommodation on line

Dear Lizzy18,
thank you for your review. I am very sorry you were not sotisfied. I am always asking the people to solve their problems immediately with the receptionists or the management, so the everything can be solved right in that time. We can provide top sheet instead of usual one in 5 minutes, just ask for it :) Air-condition seems to be ageless problem ... again and again I can only repeat what I already said - We really do not have air-condition and we never offer air-condition in this hotel. This building is cultural heritage from the 14th century listed in the UNESCO, most of the walls are really originals. There is no chance to damage the walls for all the air-condition pipes, wirings etc. And the electrical fans are much more environmentally friendly. You dont need to check TA reviews because of the air-condition in the hotel you need to check the hotel equipment before you booked it so you cant be surprised with no air-condition :)

I am checking the rooms daily and I cant imagine so many cobwebs you writing about :( Breakfast is very individual thing, each person need different food, we are trying to do our best to make you all sotisfied. Please ask for the breakfast you like at the reception, you will get it!

Kind regards
Tomas Havranek
