We traveled through the Czech Republic at the beginning of September, 2012, the first of many cities we would visit on our 6-week honeymoon.
Checking in to the Hotel Julian, we were very happy with our first choice. A quirky, art-deco establishment on the outskirts of the historic Mala Strana quarter - it was four star comfort at the spectacular Eastern-block discount of $80 a night! The staff are friendly and fluent in English, and practically trip over themselves to fetch us an aperitif in the lounge. The decor is clearly a factor in it's popularity on tripadvisor - reminiscent of Henry Higgins' mansion, with a hint of Willy Wonka, the rich furnishings strewn with wooden toys and the paraphernalia of an eccentric collector.
The rooms are simple but comfortable. It has all the amenities - TV, fridge, air conditioning, clean and neat bathroom. We sleep for 15 hours in what seems to be the most comfortable beds we've ever had, after a very long flight from Sydney to Prague via Dubai, and awake the next morning to a delicious breakfast.
We we enjoy a range of muesli, dried fruit, cured sausage, sliced cheese and the myriad flavours of yoghurt, along with tea and coffee from a proper espresso machine. Afterwards we are excited over the discovery of an old-school shoe-buffer in the reception, and explore the rooftop restaurant (although it's a little too cold to dine up there tonight), before heading out for the day. The tram stop is literally just one minute away from the hotel. Too convenient, we decide to save the tram for the trip back in the evening, and instead walk into the town center today - a lovely stroll which takes about 30 minutes. We see so much on the way we're glad we chose this option - a suggestion if you're not tight on time.
Without a doubt, we'll be staying at the Hotel Julian in the future. (NEAR future, I hope!)
