Arrived early afternoon to a beautiful warm sunny day after a 7 hour wait in Munich to take a half hour flight...grrrrr! Really enjoyed our shower and clean up this afternoon after the long flight, then went for a stroll around the local area, visiting Republic Square and The Old Town Square and walking along many small cobblestone streets. Definitely not wearing thongs again! We are staying in "The Old Town" ...
... had new currency secretly printed in Russia and shipped to the country. On a Friday night, the government announced that if you had money in the bank, the currency had be converted into the new currency at an exchange rate of 100 old units to 1 new unit. If you were a person that did not trust the banks and kept your money at home, you had three days to convert the money but the most anyone could convert is 3,000 of the old units. ...
... I've ever seen. I'm probably being a little biased because I found a Red Hot Chili Peppers guitar there but trust me it was awesome. They had this giant suspended guitar shaped chandelier in the middle of the restaurant. So cool. We ate so much food. I got a burger and the twisted mac & cheese of course! The main reason we wanted to go to Hard Rock was to make sure we would be full because that night was the bar crawl. Considering how much we drank it was a good ...
... to sleep! We slept in quite a while, then when we got up, we walked down to Veganskŷ Svet for lunch again! Darren got the curried fried rice again, and I got a noodle dish which was delicious. Yum yum yum. Oh the joys of having a vegetarian restaurant just down the road! After lunch we were still feeling lazy so just went back to the hostel where we played guitar, snoozed and were generally lazy. Towards dinner time we were ...

We saw the monastary where the monks with light brown robes live - its from them we get the name Capichino for our coffee - and the monastary where the most expensive beer in Prague is brewed.
Up by Prague Castle is where the Gestapo and later the StB of the communist government had their prison. When the Germans left at the end of WW2 the Russians took over the Communist Era began but many of the practices did not stop. Some ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lippert Prague
Excellent location, perfect view
We stayed here in February with another couple.
This is absolutely best location hotel in Prague. We had a view to the Old Town Square. We had no planns, so we decided to take a sightseeing tour from the reception. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were looking for city centre location and this fits exactly to out expectations.
Our rooms were both on the 2nd floor, it had a romantic painted ceilings. We had a bit problem with internet in the room but reception helped us to solve it fast. There is huge choice of TV channels but TVs could be larger.
Breakfast was lovely, good selection of cereals, eggs, sausages etc. We felt that we saw the best of the city and we have enjoyed our stay. Would recommend this hotel highly.
Bumped from the Metamorphosis
Booked with the Metamorphosis Hotel (through Wotif.com) but moved to the Cerna Liska as no space at the Metamorphosis. Pleasant 3 star hotel. Nice rooms, good breakfast. Did not eat at the Restaurant. Great position over Wencelas Square (though noisy if you need an afternoon nap after wearing yourself out on walking the streets of Praque all day).
Staff were fairly mediocre.
Pretty peeved about being bumped as we did lots of research prior to booking the Metamorphosis.
We arrived at the hotel at 11pm to be greeted by it's spectacular setting. It lies on the edge of the Old Town Square, adjacent to a beautiful cathedral, with the Christmas market stalls and decorative trees and lights on its doorstep.
This is the 1st time I've felt the need to write a review about a hotel but given our experiences I felt I should on this occasion. This was the 2nd time we visited Prague (4 nights) and on the 1st occasion we stayed in a big globally known hotel. On this occasion the family wanted a little more authenticity.
Hello! My husband and I were bumped to this hotel by the Hotel Metamorphis nearby (who claimed to have lost a bunch of reservations). Apparently this is a 'sister' hotel.
My mother and I stayed at the Cerna Liska in April during our trip to Eastern Europe. The hotel was recommended in a brochure as a cosy, central hotel. The hotel is only small - 12 or 3 rooms and right on Prague's Old Town Square. It could not be more central!! The rooms are huge and the restuarant has a very cosy atmosphere. The breakfast only caters for hotel guests so not a great variety but very nice. The restuarant does open to the public for lunch and dinner and is very good - great variety!! We found the hotel staff very frendly and helpful and the whole atmosphere of the Old Town Square amazing. If we had any complaint (and this is not the hotel's fault, it would be the noise on some nights. Our room did not face the Square but the side street next to St Nicholas Church. As this is one of the main walkways to the Square. All in all, I cannot recommend this hotel more highly and if I were to go to Prague again (which I hope to do), I would stay here in an instant!!
Just returned from a three night stay at this hotel over the British Whitsun holiday so Prague was bustling but although this hotel is at a corner of the Old Square it was extremely quiet at night. We opened our curtains to a fantastic view of the square across to the Tyr Cathedral. Room was large with a beamed ceiling decorated in Delft blue Dutch-type circular paintings. The bathroom had a lovely shower and our only complaint was that the maid was not too thorough and we did not have clean towels at all. Perhaps we should have dumped them in the shower each day to give her the message and as the temperature was in the high eighties they never stayed damp!! Breakfast was a cold buffet and very tasty. I have raved about Prague since coming home and would say it is well worth a visit but three nights is not long enough.
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Cerna Liska for four nights between X-mas and New Year's 2004. As Prague's medieval streets are tough to navigate, it was a blessing to have such a centrally-located hotel. If we weren't sure how to get back to the hotel, all we had to do was look for the signs toward the Old Town Square, and we were home free. If you're directionally challenged in the slightest, and this is your first trip to Prague, I would recommend this place highly as it serves as a great "home base."
Frequent visitors to this hotel
We have stayed in this hotel about 5 times over the past 4 years, the location is perfect, nearly all of the rooms overlook the square, many of our friends and family have stayed to on our recommendation and really enjoyed their stay. The square can be a little noisy sometimes, but it is a small trade-off for the location and the views. Breakfast is continental and very enjoyable.
You could not find a better location in which to stay in Prague IF you are interested in staying directly on the Old Town Square. The view out of our window was one that we will never forget, looking out on the inspiring Tyn Cathedral. We had heard that this could be a noisy location, but we found it to be quiet and ideally located, within walking distance to so many sights in Prague. Our room
was large, comfortable and very clean. We had a delicious dinner in the hotel's restaurant. Just outside the hotel are market stalls, bustling
musicians, horses and carriages. I would not hesitate to stay here again while visiting Prague's
