“First trip to Prague”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

One week ago we came back from Prague. It was cold, but overall trip was nice.
We loved this hotel. Nice service, good rooms, very good breakfast. Cozy hall with nice furniture. Hotel is away from major tourist zone, but this is good unless you like to be in the middle of action all the time.
Tram is around the corner (1 minute walk). We like to walk, but took tram few times on the way back to the hotel.
We were in room 107. At the first glance beds did not seem comfortable, but when first night we tried them we changed our opinion. Rooms have mini bar, but of cource it's not free.
Hotel has sauna and mini jym, which can be reserved individually. Sauna cost us 200 korunas and we did find out about the cost after we used it. So, if you want reserve anything or buy, ask about cost up front.
If you like beer, take 'Ujezd' road toward Carlov bridge (one tram stop), there is restaurant "U Svejku" - good and cheap beer with good kitchen (5 minutes walk from the hotel).
More likely we will stay there again.

We stayed at the Hotel Julian on a long weekend trip. What a great place! It's close to all the tourist spots, either by public transportation or on foot. The staff is super friendly and super helpful...breakfast is delicious....parking is secure. It was a great place to stay and we'd definitely reutrn.

This is a fantastic hotel. Excellent location and value for money. The staff cannot do enough for you - everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotlessly clean and unlike other establishments there is plenty of hot water available for baths/showers at any hour. You will be set up for the day with the wide variety of hot and cold buffet breakfast to choose from. We stayed here for 4 nights in March and enjoyed our time here immensely. It is perfectly located for all attractions with public transport and very good restaurants nearby. As the hotel is celebrating it's 20th Anniversary this year they even put on a violin concert which was a wonderful touch. We will definitely be returning - next time in the summer when the weather is a bit warmer!

We were greeted with a glass of bubbly on arrival as the hotel is celebrating its 20th year. A nice surprise. The decor in the lobby area was amazing lots of antique trinkets on the walls and in cabinets make for a good game of I spy! Breakfast was a variety of hot and cold meats and fresh fruit and pastries/ cakes.

This was all very good. There was also an ice machine to get ice for your min bar.

The room was very simple. Bathroom was smart but the bedroom area simple. There was two single beds pushed together rather than a double. I think they have a different star rating system in Czech Rep as this was more like a good three star hotel room than four star. This is the reason I have not given it 5/5. Also there was some problem with the tv channels which was eventually sorted but it was a shame bbc news had no sound. It didn't matter too much though as they had free wifi to check Internet. This was a good connection.

If you are after Czech food please ask reception to recommend somewhere, either in town or near the hotel. I found the staff very helpful and accommodating.

Ok this hotel is not in the main centre but you can walk there in less than 20 mins or take one of the regular tram services from just near the hotel.

Reasonably priced but not cheap. we would visit prague again and would consider staying here again.

I am very sorry if our hotel did not meet all your requests and am sorry for an accidental failure of bbc, sure it must not happen:-)

I am glad that our staff was helpful for you during your stay and you liked the lobby area.

I guess pretty much everything there is to say about this hotel has been said many times already, but just to confirm that all those commending reviews are true I decided to do my bit as well. Together with my girlfriend we stayed at Julian for 4 nights and really, really enjoyed our stay. Being in Prague several times both on holiday and on business trips, this was by far the best place I've stayed in this beautiful city. Our room on the 4th floor was clean and cosy and although it wasn't huge, it was actually bigger than I expected beforehand. And yes, service was great all the time day and night, no matter who happened to be at the reception. Breakfast was very good also with lots of things to choose from. Views from the roof top terrace are great and I can imagine it's a nice place to sit in summer time. We also took advantage of their "romantic package". It's a matter of opinion if the package is pricey or not but I have to say that everything was organized perfectly and we were satisfied. The package included pick-ups from/to the airport, sparkling wine and other small surprises etc. Maybe the best part was free sauna and whirlpool after a long day of walking in chilly weather (In Finland we've used to throwing water on the sauna stove, but it was nice and hot enough even for us anyway). In case you're maybe coming to Prague for the first time and wobbling on where to stay, don't let the location of Julian affect your decision. It'll only take some 15-20 min. to walk e.g. to the castle or to the Old Town and there's a tram stop just around the corner with good connections to virtually every part of the city. Moreover, the neighbourhood around hotel is nice and calm, and there are many pubs and restaurants nearby which are often better and always cheaper that touristy places in the Old town.

Room Tip: Our room on the 4th floor was a nice attic room with sloping windows. Altough it's on the street...
