“Easy to recommend”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

There were 4 of us to spend 4 days in Prague. We had the quadruple room which had 2 rooms. Both rooms were air-conditioned, very clean (well cleaned every day) and cozy. There was plenty of space for clothes and the kitchen corner was quite useful. The staff was most helpful and friendly. The hotel is in 15 minutes walking distance from Charles Bridge, tram and metro are very nearby. Vltava river is in a couple of blocks and we found some nice restaurants by the river and near the hotel. We did not like the gym that much: there was not enough space and the equipment was limited. Better go jogging instead. In all, we were very happy with our stay and we would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: The quadruple room in 4th floor is excellent for 4 or even 5 people.

Dear guests,

I am delighted you have chosen our hotel for your stay in Prague. Thank you very much for your feedback! I am glad you liked the suite and the location of our hotel. I am also happy that the staff was helpful for you. You are right that the gym is not huge, although, I belive that it is convenient for guests for free:-)Anyway, jogging is great in the park located near the hotel as well:-)

I am happy you would recommend our hotel and hope that we will see you again!

Enjoy the sunny days!

We stayed 5 nights in Hotel Julian and were extremely pleased with our choice. The staff were fantastic - always available and ready to help with any questions. There is even a hotel driver available if you need his services. The Hotel is very well placed for catching the local trams.
A 10 minute walk to Charles bridge, a short tram trip to the Old town and located on the castle side of the river. There is a huge park nearby, accessed by a funicular - the price of which is covered by your 24 hour tram pass. The hotel restaurant was cosy with an extensive menu, though we only ate there once as there are so many choices locally. The roof terrace is handy for an afternoon drink. Breakfast was one of the best I have had at an hotel - a large array of hot and cold choices, some options varied daily. Our next time in Prague we would definitely stay here again.

We have just returned from Prague and I couldnt wait to tell everyone just how special this hotel
All the staff are wonderful, especially both the receptionists called Luciee. Nothing was too much trouble for them (especially Lucee with the short hair). She went out of her way to help, patiently explaning tram routes and directions etc. My husband lost his walking stick while we were out, and she tried telephoning the places we had been and suppliers where we could get another one.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, the air con was very welcoming. The breakfast was great so much choice, and all fresh.. Our shower was really powerful, very invigorating, The room was huge with lovely high ceilings, made it seem very spacious. The roof terrace was a lovely peaceful retreat after a busy day sightseeing. All this just a five to ten minute walk to the town centre. The number nine tram stop is just around the corner, that takes you all the way in town. Lucee pointed out the stops we needed and it made travelling a very pleasant experience.
I arranged with the hotel before we travelled for a taxi to pick us up from the airport, sure enough the driver was waiting for us as soon as we entered the airport. We also used the service for our return journey, that was the icing on the cake. Made our journey totally stress free,
It was our first time in Prague, but after staying at this hotel it certainly wont be our last, Thank you hotel Julian for a wonderful stay. We will be back

5 of us were there this month for a family holiday. We booked 2 rooms (including 1 triple). The price was steep but during that weekend everything in Prague was steep. The rooms were a bit small for the price but the facilities were excellent. The breakfast was sufficient, not extravagant.

The staff is most helpful and I would like to thank each and every one for making the stay very enjoyable and comfortable.

The location was not bad (10min walk to Charles bridge or the National Gallery) The restaurant in the basement served some great food though it closer early. The first night our flight was late and we went for dinner by 10PM but were politely shooed away.

Beware of the taxi in Prague... you could end up paying a fortune for the mistake of not checking the meter when you board.

Dear family,

I am happy you have chosen our hotel for your family holiday in Prague. Thank you very much for your review, I do appreciate that!

Thank you very much for the compliment about our staff, it was pleasure of our team to make your stay comfortable!

I am happy you tasted our specialities in our restaurant. Although, our restaurants is open till midnight, the last order for food is accepted at 10.45 p.m. I believe that time passed very quickly during unpackig, so you got to the restaurant a little bit later:-)

Unfortunately, you are right about the taxi services in Prague, you have to be careful. From this reason we always reccommend to use our chauffeur.

Thank you very much for your stay again, you are always welcome here!

Enjoy the sunny days.

This was our first time to Prague so we really didn't know the right place to stay in the city - we pcked Hotel Julian and were very happy with our selection. We walked to everything that we did in the city. The hotel is not far from Charles Bridge, and just over the bridge is Old Town. The staff at the front desk give amazing customer service and offer tips, suggestions and directions. They have a great breakfast, clean rooms, the hotel has a boutique-y feel to it. All a very pleasant experience. Also, they have English television channels, including 2 free movie channels!!! That is a bonus in Europe. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Location: quiet area 15 mins walk to old town square, pleasant stroll along riverside. Easy access from airport - bus to Djevinka then tram 20 round corner from hotel.
Building: built 1905 with interesting history and full of character. Lots of unusual memorabilia around in 2 small but pleasant lounges. 5 floors in total with terrific rooftop terrace -a nice bonus feature for day/evening drinks.
Room: 1st floor, good size room, light, pleasant decor. In room fridge and tea/coffee making. Beds firm but comfortable. Bedding fresh and clean. Modern and clean bathroom but only a shower, no bath in our room. Shower good power (including post-marathon massage).
Breakfast: good choice of breads, toasts, cheese, cooked meats, sausages, scrambled eggs and lots of cakes! Free cake and coffee in lounge late morning
Restaurant/bar: excellent meal in restaurant, as good as anywhere in town and no dearer.
Facilities: free in-room safe, laundry and ironing service, in-room movies free. Access to sauna, gym and jacuzzi reasonably priced but did not use this.
Staff: always pleasant and helpful. Able to give advice. Transport tickets can be bought from reception.
Overall an excellent stay and would use this hotel again.

We have just returned from spending one week at the Hotel Julian. This is a friendly boutique style hostelry where the staff give you personal attention at all times. They must be busy but never make you feel that you are being a nuisance. Every day the receptionists gave us directions, details of trams, metro etc so that we could reach our destination without difficulty. The accommodation is spotless and the breakfast superb - all on a self service basis unless you ask for room service. One tip I would give is that we were told the 'chauffeur' could be paid for collecting us from the airport in either cash or the fee could be added to your bill. As we were unsure how much actual Czech currency we would need we decided to add the cost to our bill, but the driver was not happy!! We certainly paid him cash at the end of our stay when he returned us to the terminal.

Mistakenly I assumed all hotels in Prague would be non smoking as in the UK but that is not the case. I requested a non-smoking room and was delighted with the one allocated. The breakfast room is all non smoking but there is a separate smoking area for those who need their morning fix.

One extra benefit well worth mentioning is the fact that, if required, after you book out of the hotel at noon, you are given a key to a lock up cupboard where you can leave your luggage securely. As we were not flying until 10.30 pm we spent the afternoon on a river cruise and it was hot and sunny (25 degrees celsius). Even though we had officially booked out, we were given the use of a shower room and toilet on the basement floor, well stocked with toiletries and snowy white towels. I certainly welcomed this facility.

I am registered disabled and use crutches to get around. The courtesy and consideration shown to me by the general public......seats given up without hesitation..... were a shock to the system and much appreciated.

We intend to return to the Hotel Julian next year and would recommend it unreservedly.

Room Tip: You can hear traffic in rooms on the front but not a very busy road.
