“A charming place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

The bottom line: This is a charming hotel in a quiet location. The decor is warm and cozy, the rooms are comfortable and impeccably maintained. The staff is helpful, friendly, courteous, and good-natured. There is a tram stop right around the corner.

The details: I'm a finicky hotel guest. I need a quite room and I prefer air-conditioning in the warmer months. The Hotel Julian provides both. It's located about one block south of the "active area" on the west side of the river. Some of the rooms are air-conditioned (all you have to do is ask for one). The AC is under the complete control of the guest (unlike at many other European hotels).

Our room and the room of another guest in our party were comfortable and very clean. One of our inside lights was not working and it was fixed before we even mentioned it! The person cleaning the room noticed it and had it fixed. Gee, when was the last time that happened in a U.S. hotel?

The staff at the front desk speak English very well. They quickly get to know you and are eager to provide a plethora of useful information ranging from restaurant suggestions to detailed travel instructions. The bar is right behind the front desk. I especially enjoyed returning in the late afternoon, grabbing a beer (they knew which I preferred) and heading up to the rooftop terrace to relax with a view of the city. At night, it was nice to kick back and chat in the well-appointed library that was always stocked with free pastries.

There's a tram stop right around the corner that nicely serves as your portal to anywhere you likely want to visit. It's very convenient.

I recommend the hotel's car service. The driver will fetch you from the airport and ferry you right to the hotel for 600 CZK (currently, $30). We had an early return flight and had to leave at 4:15 AM. The driver was waiting for us at the desk and the hotel staff had packed us breakfast (no extra charge)!

Let me say it again. I'm a finicky hotel guest! My wife and I have traveled extensively. When asked on the Hotel Julian survey to make suggestions for improvement, all I could come up with was, "Keep doing what you do!"

I think you'll fall in love with this place, just as we did.

Room Tip: If you want to be sure you have an air-conditioned room, just email the hotel. They communicate ver...

Our stay at Hotel Julian in Prague included being picked up at the airport which was grand. The room was large by European standards and the staff was very helpful. The hotel is located conveniently near the tram which is a great way to see the city.

Room Tip: Request a non smoking room.

I and my wife booked a romantic package and stay in Hotel Julian for 2 nights from 05 May - 07 May. My wife was surprised once enter the hotel lobby for the classic design, although the hotel is not very big. The staff were very helpful and share us the hotel facilities and where we should go in Prague.
The hotel room was small, but warm designed, and very very clean! It was still cold in May, especially at night, we didn't even use the air-con.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant at second night, the food was nice, and the restaurant was designed lovely. There also a gym room and sauna in the hotel.
There is a tram station was located very near to hotel, could go quite alot places in prague. Tram NO.9 could go to the Žižkov Television Tower, that is a very funny and otstanding building in Prague, i don't think all travelers will have chance to there, especially as group, but i really want to recommend the place! Also John Lennon wall, Charles bridge, Petrin Hill are all with in walking distance.
My wife said it was the best hotel we ever stayed, and everything was just right!

We were looking for a good place to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The Julian turned out to be the BEST place.

The facility, the attention to small details, the welcoming and supportive service. Everything is tuned to give you the perfect experience.

If it wasn't clear up till now - we totally recommend this hotel!

Great hotel, and one which I would highly recommend. Parking is available out the back which is very useful as I'm not sure where else you'd leave your car (if you are mad like us and drove to Prague from the UK!). The room was lovely, very spacious and breakfast each day was delicious. We ate dinner on the summer terrace on the rooftop, overlooking the castle -- the setting was excellent, as was the food itself. The hotel is a pleasant 10 minute stroll from the square at the castle side of the Charles Bridge, so right in the heart of the action. I'd recommend actually crossing the river on the bridge nearest the hotel, as then you can actually take photos of the Charles Bridge, in addition to avoiding getting crushed on its more famous neighbouring structure!
Overall, this was a great hotel, great location and very reasonably priced considering the quality you receive.

and it was as wonderful as always. We have found that the hotel is within walking distance of everywhere (Petrin Tower and the castle, Vysehrad, Charles Bridge). We have never used public transport in Prague in all of the times we've been there as you see so much more on foot. Highly recommended!!
