Great location. A bit off the beaten track which made it quiet and cozy. It's right next to a fantastic park with a rose garden at the top, Petrin Hill. You can walk up or take the funicular if you don't have the time to enjoy the climb. It's a lovely 10 minute walk to the Charles Bridge but only 5 minutes to the bridge where the Dancing House is located or the bridge in between. The breakfast was great, rooms were clean, staff was pleasant and price was right. There is a lovely rooftop terrace where you can order room service and enjoy the view of the castle at night. Stay here!

If you are going to be in Prague, this is a " no miss shot". Comfortable, quiet, attentive staff, well situated around Prague´s tourist attractions.
Definitely a good choice.
Rooms clean, Tea-coffee at room, Free internet (WIFI), All you may need.
Just an example of efficiency: My hand shower went nuts, spilling water sideways. I kept my mouth shut to see what happens ........ Once the maid passed on the room ....... hand shower was changed !! GOOD !!!!

This was the best hotel I went to yet. It is located in a quite neighborhood close to the tram. It only takes a short tram ride to get to the old town, Charles bridge or pretty much any part of this beautiful and charming city. A great breakfast with a choice of several styles of eggs, meats, cheeses, yogurts, breads, rolls, fruits and juices. The rooms are super clean and nice roomy bathrooms, comfortable beds, nice room decor, and provides a safe to keep your valuables. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They gave advice, helpful tips and recommended four great restaurants which we went to and found it to be really fantastic. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful experience. On the roof there is a terrace which offers spectacular views especially the castle. They also have a pub offering meals and drinks in the basement of the hotel. I would recommend to anyone who is visiting Praha to stay at the Julian. I will definitely be staying there again when i return.

This is a wonderful hotel in a fantastic city. You might note that it is defined as a three star property, seems more four star to me. A great location on a quiet street in Mala Strana (Little Quarter). Have seen comments from those who desire to be located in or near Old Town, what a mistake. A short tram ride to the Charles Bridge brings you to the heart of Prague tourist central. Super clean rooms and nice size bathrooms, comfortable beds, nice room decor and in room safe makes this a great location to enjoy your Praha visit. Good breakfasts with a choice of three types of eggs, meats, cheeses, fruit, several types of hard rolls and breads give you the energy to walk the streets and back alleys of Old Town. The Julian also gives you a great library to try the cake and coffeee provided in the afternoon if you give out early. Last and not least, the hotel is a great value right now as is much of Prague.
Looking for a good restaurant to revive those tired legs, just ask the desk staff and they will provide some nearby suggestions. We enjoyed super meals at Ristorante Carmelita (Italian) (www.restaurancecarmelta.cz). For great beef we enjoyed Vesely Bizon (www.veselybizon.cz) (site in Czech) just a 4 minute walk on the next street. For good Czech food, surroundings and beer (Budvar) experienced in a bit smokey environment, try U Medvidku (No. 9 tram ride almost to the door.) Hope you enjoy your visit to Praha as much as we did ours.

Hotel Julian is located in a quiet safe neighborhood only a block away from tram lines. The area has shops and restaurants which are fun to visit. The hotel is very charming with a very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was very clean, quiet, roomy, cozy and airy with windows above the courtyard. The breakfast, included in the price of the room, offered a good variety of eggs, meats, cheeses, breads, sweet cakes, fruit, cereals, yogurt and beverages. Down in the basement there was a cozy pub offering meals and drinks. On the roof there is a large terrace for eating or just enjoying the spectacular view. If you need advice on restaurants just ask the desk as they recommended to us 4 gems for each night we were there.On one afternoon I spent a relaxing time in the library eating the cake and coffee provided and reading my book. I would recommend all to stay at the Julian. when in Prague.

3 friends and I recently stayed (June 2009) in this excellent hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, our rooms were comfortable and clean, and the bathrooms were excellent. We loved the whole ambience of the hotel, there was a delicious breakfast every morning, at civilised times, and the location was fine for sightseeing - about 15 mins walk from the Charles Bridge, and the same to the Castle area.
We have travelled widely as a group, and this is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in, and at a very good price as well! Thankyou Hotel Julian.

This was our best accommodations during our European vacation with my wife, my parents and older brother. The location was magnificent, with quick access to all the sites, but quiet at night for restful sleep in the Julian's large comfy rooms. The staff was excellent and provided the best recommendations for dinner, ranging from traditional Czech food to fantastic Italian and steak restaurants. You would be remiss in not taking their dinning advice!. The rooms were extremely clean and good sized, while the bathrooms are very large compared to the normal closet sized European bathrooms one comes to accept while travel in Europe. Again, the staff should be praised for all their help, including extra assistance in packaging our oil panting we purchased during our stay! Thank you!!! We will definitely stay here again when we return. Good choice Carter (my father)!
