“One of the BEST in Prague”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2009

So far, this is one of the BEST hotels for the price. It's in a quiet location beside Petrin Hill. It's about 10-15 min walk to Charles Bridge. Vyšehrad Castle is approx 35-40 min walk.

The rooms were very satisfying: Clean, comfortable, and bathroom & the shower was great! The TV channel selection was good (approx 20 channels)

The views from the Terrace up top, were wonderful!! A very relaxing area to be in after a long day. The Breakfast area was located on the main floor, beside the reception. The breakfast was buffet style and was a good variety of eggs,cheese,meats, yogurts,breads, & cereals.

They have a restaurant in the basement of hotel. We didn't get a chance to eat there. It looks cozy and very small with a bar. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful.
We would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Loved our stay in Hotel Julian-September 2009. It has charm and is very well run. Very quiet also-around the corner from the tram - nothing to walk to immediately around the hotel but the tram is very convenient-if you stay in the historic center the hotels are very noisy and expensive. If you pay cash (non refundable) I believe you get a discount and also mention Rick Steves-we booked directly with thier booking site. The restaurant is convenient and pretty good. The staff are very helpful. To get to the castle take the proper tram-the hotel can tell you which to take-we ran off to the historic district without directions and wound up climbing tons of stairs to get up to the castle - we are seniors and that was hard. Also-look both ways when waiting for tram in the center island-my husband looked the wrong way and walked right in front of the tram-it stopped within inches.

Everything at the Julian was great--the staff, the decor, the temperature (ac on very hot Prague days), the ease of getting anywhere (it's close to the tram, although it's not all that far from the Charles Bridge). We especially liked the restaurant, located in the basement. It's a charming little place with tasty food, and a nice choice of entrees, reasonably priced. We met some other travellers who had eaten there every night of their trip, and it's a nice thought to "come home for dinner" after a busy day sightseeing. Vera, at the restaurant, was a pleasure to know. If you want, your dinner would also be brought up to the rooftop terrace, with a view of Prague Castle in the distance.
One word to travellers staying at the Julian in hot weather would be to ask for an air-conditioned room, since apparently not all the rooms are air conditioned.

Prague is a wonderful city to visit and our stay in Julian Hotel made our trip even more enjoyable. The room we got was very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. The staff were very friendly and always ready to help with a smile. The breakfast was very good. We truly have no complaints. Even the location of the hotel was good...not too close and not too far :)

My wife and I spent a long time searching for a nice place close to the attractions and my conference venue and I am thankful we settled on Hotel Julian.
Centrally located, it is 2 tram stops south of the Charles bridge (which is only a 10min walk anyway) and walking distance to nearby Petrin Hill. 2 tram stops south and you arrive at Andel Metro station (yellow line) which brings you virtually anyplace in the city.
Overall the service was good, with eager receptionists speaking English. You can buy tickets for transport from them too.
Breakfast was fantastic, though go early to get the best selection. Must try the restaurant downstairs for dinner too, and if weather permits sit on the rooftop terrrace for great city views. The icing was free WIFI from the room, and if that fails you get to use the pC free downstairs for 15min with printing facilities too.
Another successful trip made possible in large part to the helpful reviews from Tripadvisor.

I booked this Hotel after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and was delighted with the choice. We were lucky enough to get a discounted offer deal on this trip which made this a bargain.

I was slightly concerned as to the Hotels location but Prague is a small city and it has an excellent transport system which is easy to use. Only about 15 minutes walk to Charles Bridge. There is also a Tesco minimaket about 10 minutes walk away in the Andel area. There is a tram stop about 5 minutes walk from the Hotel and the nearest Metro is in Andel about 15 minutes away.

The room we stayed in was at the front of the Hotel and there was no problem with street noise. The staff were very friendly and at reception were only too happy to advise or help on any problem or query. The buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The Hotel was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The room had a multi channel TV, sofa, and a very new bathroom.

There were other facilities in the Hotel such as a small Gym and it has its own Restaurant and Bar in the basement. There is also a rooftop terrace which has good views over the city. In Prague there is a vast choice of Restaurants and Bars so we did not use the Hotels. The reception lounge area is very well furnished and decorated to a high standard, almost like an old study.

This is an excellent Hotel. It is small with only 30 rooms and I feel that is what makes it so pleasant. I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel and hope to stay there again in the future.
