“Dinner at the terrace”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

At Thursday, August 2, 2012 I and my wife came in the early evening walk through Prague at the terrace of the hotel Julian. There is a nice view of Prague Castle and Vysehrad. The band Jazz In Flagranti played here live to listen. Live music livened up our comfortable sitting and dinner time on the terrace of this nice hotel. Dinner was delicious. The service was fast and professional.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Julian for 4 nights in August 2011 and loved it thoroughly. The hotel is very clean, nicely decorated, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is slightly at a distance from the centre of Prague, so it's somewhat of a walk to the Charles Bridge and most of the other places, but these walks can be part of the experience because you actually get to see the streets and maybe even try the old (or new) streetcars. So if you don't mind walking for 20 minutes along the beautiful Vltava river before you reach the Old Town - Hotel Julian is perfect.

Prague's airport-to-city transit system seems non-existent. Triple transfer on city buses doesn't count. But! Hotel Julian has this package they call the "Romantic Package", where for 50 or 60 euros, they'll send a personal driver to pick you up from the terminal (the driver will meet you at the Arrivals while holding up a card with your name on it, correctly spelled). The package also includes a return ride to the airport at the end of your stay. The driver is a very polite local gentleman, who was professionally courteous to ask how you flight (or stay in Prague) was and the rest of the ride continues in tranquility of silence or some local radio. The driver will help you with your luggage, politely accept the tip, and you're there. Additionally with the Romantic Package, you get a welcome bottle of very decent sweet champagne and some strawberries in your room, plus you get a breakfast for two on your first morning, and some other nice stuff like that (just check the website). Oh, you also get to privately access the sauna/whirlpool of the hotel, but we weren't able to fully enjoy that because the whirlpool wasn't working. Maybe they've fixed it. Also, since the sauna doesn't operate continuously for public use, they have to heat it especially for you upon request, so it naturally doesn't get warm enough to make a proper sauna session. So if this was a flaw to the experience, it certainly wasn't a significant one. Overall, I do *highly* recommend the Romantic Package at Hotel Julian. The airport rides alone recover the 60 euros that the package costs, as a single cab ride will probably run 30 euros or more), plus you get all that other nice stuff, and it's really cool.

The hotel has this fantastic rooftop patio with tasteful, modern patio furniture on it, and you can access it just about any time to take in the morning breezes or some late-night views of the Prazsky Hrad illuminated in the distance. You can have your breakfast up there, dinner, cocktail/beer, whatever - it's amazing.

The breakfast at the hotel is delicious and rich in variety. Much higher standard than the typical "Continental" you might expect. I mean, there was fruit, and beverages, and dairies, and maybe even hot items like omelettes, if I remember correctly. That was also great.

Prague is not an expensive European destination, and Hotel Julian also seems very reasonably priced, so the feeling of value was definitely there, strongly. I think it was under 100 euros per night, which felt like a bargain for all the benefits and comforts.

I'm pretty sure we'll be going to Prague again in X number of years, and I know I won't even be looking at other hotels.

Room Tip: As usual, the top floors are the best. Right under the roof you get those tilting skylight windows a...

We just returned from our trip to Prague where we stayed 7 nights at the Hotel Julian. This is a wonderful hotel! I have absolutely no complaints! Every person who worked for the hotel was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and efficiently designed. The lobby, sitting room, breakfast room, and restaurant were beautiful. The food was excellent, too! We really enjoyed the fresh, high quality breakfast every day. We also thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. It offered a great combination of traditional Czech foods as well as other dishes for those looking for something lighter, and the prices were very fair. The staff even served dinner on the rooftop patio upon request. With this being my first time traveling to Europe, this hotel contributed to me having a phenomenal experience. It was very western-friendly with European flair. I cannot wait until we can return for another trip.

The Hotel Julian appears quite old-fashioned at first glance, with a penny farthing bicycle in one of the windows, big old comfy seats in the lounge and lots of dark mahogany in reception.

However, it has all the mod cons we needed: free wifi on each floor for great signal strength, satellite tv in the room as well as a kettle, mini-bar, safe, powerful shower and lots of wardrobe space. We could print out our return boarding passes in reception.

The room we were in was a little small, but you didn't notice due to the very high ceilings.

The breakfast each morning was good: boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, bacon, frankfurters, bread & toast, fruit, yoghurts, cereals, cheese, ham and also cakes, with juices, different teas and coffee. They served till 10.30 am (11 on weekends) as well, which suited us.

The roof-top terrace was a very peaceful place to visit in the evenings - we sat out in the dark, looked out at Prague Castle in the distance, drank large cold beers, chatted and Skype'd our kids back home over the wifi.

The hotel is only 2 trams stops away from Charles Bridge, and 2-3 tramstops away from the center of the New Town, with trams coming every few minutes. A Tesco Express shop is around the corner where you can pick up some bits and pieces quite cheaply.

All in all, we loved it: a quiet and relaxing stay at the Hotel Julian. We would definitely go back.
