When walking by the Black Eagle’s Residence you may easily miss it. So try to look carefully so that you don’t miss out on this beauty in the canter of Prague. The house dates back to the mid-14th century and is only steps away from Charles Bridge. Every step you feel the history.

The oldest record of Tomeks renowned local history book says there used to be the palace of the Mainz archbishop Ludwig, protecting his entire crew from danger during his return to the royal court in Prague. And also the Lesser Town legend mentions it, according to which the house is dedicated to joy and happiness. 

Aristocratic accommodation 

The hotel in its present form is more of a family business. It has only 12 rooms, which are equipped with quality oak furniture in the style of aristocratic estates. You can stay in standard double rooms with windows to a quiet atrium, or in more luxurious rooms with quality Hästens beds and hand- painted ceilings. The most demanding of you can sleep in the attic suite with a fully equipped kitchen and a small balcony overlooking the Lesser Town rooftops. We also appreciate the pillow menu where everyone can choose exactly what they need. 

Czech modern cuisine 

The Residence has its own restaurant with period decoration and preserved historical vaults. An à la carte breakfast is served every morning, while the rest of the day you can enjoy traditional Czech cuisine with a modern twist. If you happen to get hungry during the afternoon lounging in the hotel, you can find in all the corridors small refreshments in the form of sandwiches, homemade cakes, biscuits, lemonade, coffee and tea. 

For business and love 

The Residence U Černého Orla is a popular place for business travellers visiting the capital for work. The hotel also features a private lounge for 30 people for conferences or teambuildings. Couples will also appreciate romantic packages including a bottle of sparkling wine, a 5-course dinner and breakfast in bed. Just get out of the hotel and you are at the heart of everything. In a moment you will find yourself at the most famous landmarks of the capital - Prague Castle; you can walk around Kampa or climb the Petřín lookout tower. If you don’t know Prague, you can have a guided tour set up at the hotel reception, where you can also arrange a private guide.

 What to visit

If we listed everything, it would be as long as a whole new article. But to name some, if you walk through Mostecká street on one side, you will arrive at Malostranské Square, from where you can continue along Nerudova street or up the Castle Steps to Prague Castle. If you go to the other side, you will come to Kampa and Charles Bridge. Nearby you can find Vojanovy sady, Vrtbovská, Nosticova and Valdštejnská gardens. What is more there are plenty of beautiful palaces around.
