“Very nice hotel to stay not far from old city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

There are so many reviews about Hotel Julian here that I'm not sure I can tell something new about. But I'll try. Stay here for 4 nights in May. Very convenient location: on the one side pretty close to the downtown and all attractions of city center, on the other - quiet place away from the tourist hordes. Regarding the location, I have to stress it is located on opposite side of the river to the old city. You can walk 10 minutes or take a tram to the old city - the station is just a block away, or you can walk across the bridge to the National Opera. The place is very cozy, there is secure car parking, front desk staff excellent, Teresa on reception - so helpful and friendly! Rooms are relatively spacious, decor is folksy - it's not luxury, but very clean and fresh. Hotel has a wonderful roof terrace with a view of the castle. The door of the hotel is locked, and you must buzz to let you in.
Breakfast is above and beyond! It included really wide range of options, you can find something for everyone, but everything is tasty. Bottom line - very good value for money, the prices are more the reasonable.
The only thing I can complain about is poor Wi-Fi signal.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Julian. The staff were all excellent, the room was big enough and clean and we enjoyed chilling out in both the lounge and the summer terrace. Highly recommend the city tour organised from the hotel - small groups and great tour leader. Ideal location and nice quiet rooms. All in all a great place to stay.

Hotel Julian is a quirky little Hotel 2 minutes walk from the river and 1.0 kilometre from Charles Bridge but importantly away from the crowds! Staff are efficient and friendly. The rooms could do with a refurb (very nineties) but they were big enough. I would stay with them again if I ever return.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, they have an airport shuttle which you need to pay for, but they can charge it to the room so no need to worry about having cash availble. The staff was excellent, very helpful in helping us plan our time. They will even make the arrangements for any trips you want to go on. They had a brochure rack in the lobby and that's where we picked out what we want to do, great selection. They do have a continental breakfast which included hot food as well as fruit and biscuits. They also have a restaurant with a balcondy that you can see Prague Castle from, nice to have after a long day of walking around. We were about a 15 minute walk from the Charles Bridge and 10 minutes to the nearest tram station. Along the walk there were several restaurants. Overall, the perfect hotel, no complaints!

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor as that was all they had available when we arrived, didn't hear a t...

Dear guests.

Thank you for your message and nice rating.

Sometimes you can find an extraordinary and historical decoration - the owner of the hotel Mr. Vesely appreciates objects with a long history and spirit. Some of them are very valuable. But I hope other decoration does not scare our guests:-)

Kind regards

What an outstanding hotel -- a highlight of our trip! We arrived very late on 7/21/14, and the front desk clerk was very kind and helpful. The kitchen stayed open late for us, and the food was delicious! Roasted duck, pasta with black truffle sauce, potato soup with mushrooms ... in a warm, cozy ambiance with a pleasant, friendly waitress. The hotel room was plush and very comfortable -- seemed like the ceilings were 12' high. The clerk on 7/22-23 was an outstanding ambassador for the city, and also the hotel -- keep that young man and give him a raise! We used hotel drivers for both arrival and departure, and they were also extremely polite and professional. The location was quiet, yet accessible; it was very helpful to have the tram right around the corner. Hotel Julian is a treasure!

Room Tip: Our room was on the third floor, facing the street, and it was nice and quiet, roomy and well furnis...

We stayed at Hotel Julian for a whole week during our visit to Prague. We searched quite a bit before booking and saw that hotel Julian had very good reviews. We were more than pleased that we chose this hotel. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The hotel is nicely decorated, very conveniently located, 2min away from tram stop which takes you to the centre in a few minutes. It enjoys the luxury of being very quiet at night, but yet close to some good restaurants which one can find at walking distance. The hotel itself has a small cosy restaurant downstairs and a terrace upstairs for dining during the summer months. Food is very good and not expensive. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the housekeeping staff were lovely. They have a very good breakfast and a nice sitting room where one can chill out, with newspapers, board games and fresh doughnuts and water always available.

A special thanks goes to Vaclav and Tereza for being so helpful. You were exceptional.

The staff at Hotel Julian made our stay in Prague an amazing one.

A big well done to all.

Would surely recommend.
