“A Gem!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

A gem of a place!!!!........It is a small boutique hotel......absolutely charming place.Of ,course not for those who want a big hotel with swimming pools and gym,etc...........

We stayed in May,and had a suite/quadruple room on the 4th floor.The room was fantastic with a kitchennette provided .....Everything was smooth from the moment we checked in......Courteous staff....early check in....rooms ready on check in......every request met.......good guidance for city visits by the reception people....always a smile on their face.

They even had public transit full day tickets avilable at the reception for 110 crowns ,the actual price---no premium charged.There was a nice restaurant with good breakfast.....the antique clock in the small lobby is a must see!!!!

Location was great......2 minutes walk to tram stop ,Svandovo Divadlo and 5 minutes to Petrin hill and Ujezd...a major tram junction ......it is just a 5 minute tram ride to charles bridge from svandovo divadlo.

Very good pizzeria on way to Ujezd stop......supermarket close by........everything was perfect.

The lovely city of Prague was made lovelier with a stay in this place.

Room Tip: The suites on 4 th floor are fantastic although there are no views.

Me and my partner have just returned from 4 nights at the Hotel Julian and we couldn't have had a better stay. We were given a pre-requested non-smoking room on the first floor which was great. The room had no air-conditioning and with the weather being so warm, I went to reception and requested a room with air-conditioning and was told that we could be moved the next day which was no problem.
The room we were moved to was perfect, opposite the road but quiet as we kept the windows closed and air-conditioning on. It was very spacious with a large bed and an armchair, with a TV, free movie channels and a huge bathroom with a bath/shower. There was also a dressing table, mirrors and a little corner with a kettle, tea and coffee and even a couple of chocolates :) The room was cleaned every day and fresh towels provided when we needed them.
The breakfast was perfect for us, cold options such as fresh fruit, cereal and yoghurts, ham, cheese and hot options like sausages, bacon and eggs. The drinks were fresh juice and tea and coffee. A delicious start to a long day of exploring the city!
The reception staff couldn't have been any more kind and helpful. They spoke very good English and were very helpful when we needed directions or when we were travelling outside of the city. They also recommended restaurants and when my partner requested a bottle of champagne for the room as an anniversary surprise, they ensured it was ready in the ice bucket in our room on our return from a day out.
All in all, this hotel made our trip to Prague even more special and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about travelling to this beautiful city.

This place was fantastic. Location was perfect- everything in walking distance yet just far enough away to be able to get away from it all. Couldn't get enough of the terrace. My favorite hotel breakfast of all time! Staff was fantastic- my mom only mentioned once when she booked via email that we would be celebrating my birthday and on the day we came back to champagne and a card. The staff was also extremely accommodating when we brought a few friends back for cigars and a night cap. They also were very laid back about us letting a friend crash on our couch. In short, they focus on what is important, great customer service, rather than getting wrapped up in meaningless rules and restrictions the way some hotels do. Parking was very secure, which was great.

If I HAD to find something wrong with this hotel it would be the smallest, pickiest things. Showers were a definite adventure, and hot water was limited. Beds are a bit hard. And the coffee in the room is instant and kind of ick. Not a big deal but when we tried to go downstairs to get some of the breakfast room coffee we were scolded for not using the coffee in the room. I don't think it would take much to keep some going in the pot.

Regardless, if I ever return to Prague, the Hotel Julian will be my only consideration. Thanks for everything!

Dear guests,

thank you very much for your stay and really nice review. We always do our best for our guests to feel comfortable and am happy while reading your words, thank you! I believe that you celebrated your birthday in a pleasant way in Prague. I am happy that you would come again and hope it happens soon!

Anyway, the instant coffee in the room is just a "first aid":-), it is always our pleasure to prepare fresh espresso at the bar anytime:-)

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Stayed with family for 1 night and loved it. Location just across the river might look slightly off main square if you look on a map, but location is perfect. You're next to the park, a wonderful walk from the castle (or take tram 22), and very close to the French neighbourhood. It is really easy to get around. Reception was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great service and we look forward to being back!

We booked two triple rooms for our party of 4 adults and 2 teenagers at Hotel Julian on July 2 and 3,and were pleased with the rooms. Both had large bathrooms with plenty of thick towels; the deluxe room was a bit larger and more updated than the standard triple, with complimentary robes and slippers, and a plate of fresh fruit on our first afternoon. The deluxe room faced the street but it was quiet and the air conditioning was wonderful! The hotel was conveniently located to a tram stop and the desk clerk exchanged Euros for the correct CZK coins for the nearby tram. When one large coin refused to work, we learned that new coins don't always work in the machine, and natives scuff up the edges. After trying that trick, the coin worked and spit out our tickets! We had been given explicit instructions on the tram to take to the hotel from the train station (where we arrived by bus from Neurenburg, but panicked when we noticed the trams passing the train station seemed to be very full. The hotel sent 2 taxis for us, at a cost of CZK 800 (about $32). A couple from Chicago checking in at the same time said they had taken tram #9 and had no problems, at a cost of $4.00, quite a savings. We ordered taxis for our trip to the main train station on our departure, and paid CZK 700, since one way streets made it a shorter trip TO the station.

Breakfast was varied and could be eaten on the rooftop if desired. The in-house restaurant food was very good, and we ate on the rooftop one evening and in the basement restaurant the following evening . Prague is an intriguing city, we enjoyed our visit very much and would happily recommend hotel Julian to others.

Stayed here June 15 for a few nights, and it was very good. Just across the river, about 10 minutes' relaxed walk from main square, and away from the worst of the tourist noise. We were in a streetfront room on the second floor and apart from a few drunken tourists happy (or sad) about Euro 2012, it was quiet enough to get a good night's rest. Breakfast good, staff exceptional. Parking arrangements good. Rooftop terrace a nice spot for a great city view. Only downside was a stain on the carpet which remained from our arrival til the end our stay.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your stay and your feedback.
If you came to our hotel next time, ask for one of the room facing to the coutyard, which are much quieter.
We have been trying to clean the carpet a few times, unfortunately with no success. We decided to change the carpet in a low season to do not disturb daily operation of the hotel so much.

Enjoy the rest of the summer !

3 of us shared a family room for 3 nights from 10 June and we loved the hotel. The room was spotless, the breakfasts were filling and delicious. Great location, close to a busy tram stop, so very easy to get around beautiful Prague.
