“Location, comfort and excellent staff”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

A group of 9 of us with 9 motorcycles stayed here for 2 nights as part of an eastern European trip. Safe parking is very important to us and there was parking in the courtyard at the rear - perfect. The location is about 10/15 minutes walk along the river, and through a park to Charles Bridge and on to the old town. This walk seemed safe at night but probably best not done alone.

The hotel is very elegant with a lovely foyer with antiques and artifacts around the area. Rooms were air conditioned, spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was very good and was plenty for even 9 big bikers guys. The restaurant downstairs was very quiet, but maybe this was because it was a Tuesday night.

Both girls (on different shifts) on the reception desk spoke excellent English, were very friendly, welcoming and efficient - nothing was a problem.

We always hire Segways to tour about on, and the initial rate at the hotel was 78 euro pp for 2 hours, we got this down to a (best rate) 68 euro pp as we were a group.

We declined, and eventually got a 2 hour guided tour for 40 euro pp in the old town square.

Would definitely recommend Hotel Julian and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Hire a Segway in the square for the best value

Dear motorbikers,

thank you for choosing our hotel as a part of your big journey! We are please you found a good shelter for your bikes at our hotel. Our parking is situated in the court of the building and only the reception can open the gate to let clients in - a would say enough safe place for motorbikes and cars. Places at the parking are limited, so we advice to reserve the parking place in advance.

I hope you will enjoy other places in Europe as well as Prague. I wish you safe journey and many and many happy kilometres on you motorbikes!

Kind regards

My wife and I just returned from two weeks in Europe and the highlight of our four city trip was the beautiful city of Prague. Can't say enough good things about Prague.

We selected the Hotel Julian after extensive research (which I have time to do since I am retired). Our best source of information on hotels was tripadvisor which had numerous glowing recommendations on Hotel Julian. Believe what they say.

Let me start with the location. Hotel Julian is located in a quiet area of Prague with no other hotels in the vicinity but it is in easy walking distance of all the major sites, restaurants, and the tram. If you love to walk, like we do, this location is superb. There is even a Tesco supermarket 5-10 minutes away.

We asked for and received a room in the front of the building. We sleep with the windows open and found there was little noise other than the occasional reveler following a World Cup game. The room was spacious and well appointed and the price was reasonable. (Let me add here that Prague is a very reasonably priced city when compared to others in Europe.)

But the best thing about Hotel Julian was the staff. Everyone there treats you like family and makes you feel so welcome. Tereza (hope my spelling is correct) was absolutely wonderful. She provided us with good restaurant recommendations, helped us navigate the tram, and even taught us a Czech word or two. No matter what issue we had, she resolved it and always had a beautiful smile along with the answer.

We definitely plan to return to Prague and the Hotel Julian will be our home.

This hotel is amazing! The staff are the nicest I've ever come across. They were always more than happy to help with anything; directions, food recommendations etc. The rooms themselves are large and very clean. They have all the features you need for a great stay including a tv, warm blankets, tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast is also wonderful; so much variety and all so delicious. The hotel also has a lovely resturant which has the best goulash I've ever had!

Located only a short walk to the main city centre (about 10min) I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Prague.

Our family will visit Prague in July. Based on Rick Steves’ recommendation and the reviews we found on TripAdvisor, we decided to book a triple room in Hotel Julian. Everything went smoothly during the reservation of the room and the private car transfer. The reception staff speaks very fluent English so there was no problem in communication. The only complaint we had is Hotel Julian did not honor the discount rate quoted from Rick Steves's tour book: 15% discount on top of the best website rate. We were told by the reservation staff that we can take either 15% of the regular rate, or the web rate, but not combined. Anyway, we still booked the room and look forward to having a good stay.

Dear clients.

Thank you for choosing Hotel Julian for your stay in Prague, we will do our best to make your stay pleasant and comfortable.

Let me explain the discount for Rick Steves Book. We offer 15% discount from our best available rate (rack rate). This will get every client does not matter how many nights he stays. In case a client stays 4 nights and more we also offer additional 5% discount for a long stay (this information you cannot find in Rick Steves book). It means we offer also discount 20% (discount for non refundable rate) without necessity of pre-payment. Also, the conditions change according to actual agreement with Mr. Rick Steves. So it depends what year your book was published. Prices of the rooms are not the same every year and the hospitality market changes as well. Because of this reason we to respond to changing market conditions. Anyway - every reader of Rick Steves Book will get at least 15% discount.

I hope I managed to explain the discount in the right way. What I can also advice to clients when making their reservation - check our websites, often you can find there a great offer for direct reservations only!:-)

Looking forward to welcome you in here!

Kind regards

Great hotel, best staff at the 24 hr reception desk where everyone spoke English, the tram is a block away so no car needed, city center is walking distance if you're up to it. Breakfast offered anything one could want, eggs, sausage, bacon, pastries, fresh yogurt was the best, fruit, breads, cereals - all fresh. Comfy beds, modern bathrooms, towel warmers, flat screen TV ( BBC and CNN only English channels), There 's a lift and a sun deck on the 5th floor, but you have to take the stairs from the 4th to the 5th floor. The restaurant in the basement is just delightful serving really good food. Just a great place to stay, Special thanks to Vaclav (?) just the best guy who seemed to really enjoy helping.

Room Tip: We got upgraded to a triple room on the 3rd floor in front. Traffic noise wasn't too bad at all...

I loved this Hotel. The rooms and Hotel were clean with no strange odors. The reception staff were most helpful and spoke English, which is a real plus. The breakfast was full of a variety of different things to eat. The coffee...the coffee was great!! It seems to be located in a residential area... and it was. It was quiet all night! The bathrooms were clean and the room was bright and cheery. It was a 15 minute walk from places I wanted to see.

Very nice hotel with good room, attentive staff, clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. In a quiet part of the city but not far from most tourist sites. Only minor complaint was the cost, at about 107 Euros/ night.

Dear Sir.

Thank you for sharing your feelings after your stay with us.

I am sorry you feel 107E/night/triple room too much, but in the price of the night there is also included: breakfast, Wifi connection in the room, free coffee and tea in the room, bottle of water every day and free water and sweets in the library (lobby bar)...I hope our clients will appreciate these little points included in the price of their stay,
