My wife and I booked the Chocolate Getaway Package at a rate of 239 EUR for one night. The hotel is centrally located (along a fairly noisy street but ok, it's in the city center after all) and has all the charm expected of a design boutique hotel (albeit a bit overpriced in comparison to other similar places.)
However, the Julien's really need to work on its expectations management. The website advertises a nice spa area to be part of the hotel. And indeed it is, but very small (max. 6 people), for private use only, and be aware - it is not included in the standard room rates but comes at a heftly 39€ /h for 2 people ! We would have expected to Spa usage to be included given these room rates - or at least to be specifically made aware that is not when making the reservation.
Other minor discomforts could also be mentioned (chocolate package in the room only 150gr instead of 250gr as advertised, cold egg dishes served for breakfast, orders not executed correctlyetc.) All of these not worth mentioning individually, but given the room rates and the expectations raised, they add up leaving disappointed guests behind.
Overall, better value for money in other hotels and above all, check in advance whether amenities you would take for granted in such hotel are really included at Julien's.More
