Location great, staff friendly, good water pressure in the showers... But probably the weirdest room decor ever. Looks like 1980 threw up pink & creme fabric everywhere. Oh- & there are strange pics of topless women on the walls? Our bedding (that was supposed to be white) was yellow. Everything seemed clean except for beds.

Dear clients.

Thank you for your review.

To explain you the decor of the room- wife of the owner of the hotel choose the colors of the rooms and she tries to decore the room to pleasant and warm tones. We are sorry you did not like the colours, but we have many types of the rooms, so maybe you would prefere other one. And the paintings in the hotel- it is the owner who choose, so it would explain the painting in your room:-)

We have united the bedding last month, so all the bedding is white now.

We hope you enjoyed Prague anyway.

Kind regards

Wonderful hotel in a great location. It was away from the crowds but close enough to walk to everything. The breakfast that is included was good. Enough to fill your belly and head out for the sights. I never ate at the restaurant for dinner but it looked good. Theres also a great restaurant a block away called Vidlicky A Noze. Excellent food and beer!! The room was a good size as well as the bathroom. Wifi worked great so I was able to contact home no problem. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay here again!!

Just back from a very pleasant stay at this hotel & would definitely return to it in future. The hotel is spotless & staff very friendly & helpful. Vaclav was extremely helpful in recommending restaurants & things to do all of which were excellent. I would recommend the romantic package incl transfers from & to airport as the hotel certainly make you feel at home & cater for your every need. I look forward to returning there in the future & wish them well with their future business. It is only 10min walk to Charles bridge.

Dear clients.

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your romantic stay in Prague. We are pleased Romantic package was the right thing for you.

Vaclav is great receptionist as well as guide. During the summer he will do his own private tours for our guests. There is a lot to wait!

Just back from Prague after running in the marathon. Booked Hotel Julian based on TA reviews, and wasnt disappointed....

The welcome and service from reception were excellent.

The hotel itself is not large, and certainly not a major chain hotel. It is situated outside the Old Town and centre of tourist attractions, BUT is an easy 15 min walk from the main attractions, or a very convenient, regular and cheap tram ride.

Room (305) was comfortable, spacious, quiet, and clean; bathroom was excellent.

Transfer from airport was speedy and reliable; and I sense decent value (took about 25 mins each way).

The reception staff had a very warm welcome, and were able to help with all tourist queries.

Two particularly noteworthy points

1) Given the marathon, I asked for breakfast earlier than the opening (7am); the hotel took the trouble to get me various bits and pieces to collect before 0600. Excellent.

2) The hotel has a day bathroom you can use for a shower or to change for late departures in the basement - again, it is very clean, and incredibly handy.

Dear runners :-)

Thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers.

Sightseeing and sport in Prague at the same time? Why not! I hope you enjoyed it as much as possible!

We are happy to prepare early breakfast or breakfast package for early leaving guests. We understand planes do not start flying after our breakfast:-)

We wait here for your till next marathon!

Kind greetings

We have just come back from a brilliant 3 days in Prague. Hotel Julian was exactly what we were looking for, clean, comfortable and child friendly. They were so helpful from start to finish. Breakfast was a feast which we all looked forward to every morning and a great start to the day. We stayed in the apartment which was perfect for our needs. We had supper in the restaurant every night because our children were too exhausted to go out. Food was very good and they were very kind and cooked our children something off the menu. We can't wait to return.

Top tip if you are going to Prague with young children: We took a boat ride down the river to Prague zoo which is one of the best in the world and a change from sight seeing

We recently spent a week at the Hotel Julian in Prague. The staff was very helpfull and the hotel is in a quiet neighborhood. While not in the city center the hotel is in easy walking distance to most of the city and very close to a tram station. They serve a very substantial breakfast and have a nice restaurant and bar in what must have been a cellar at one time. The roof top terrace is a wonderful spot to relax with a great view of the castle. The only caution I would give is that the steps down to the restaurant are somewhat dark and steep. There are also several other restaurants within easy waling distance. All in all we would absolutely stay here again on our next visit to Prague.

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Prague and stayed at the Hotel Julian. Service was perfect from the airport pickup to the wonderful, friendly staff. They helped with tram tickets, information, etc. The tram was close and convenient to the centre of town. The breakfasts were filling and the basement restaurant/bar was not only charming, but the food was wonderful! The Terrace was wonderful anytime..with a spectacular view. The hotel was quiet and totally charming...can't wait for our next trip to Prague and Hotel Julian! They had a fitness center, but we did not have time to enjoy it!
