“"Pleasant stay"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights in the end of april. Everything was to our satisfactory. Super service, nice quiet room towards the yard as requested.The bathroom with shower was fine and clean.
The breakfast was tasty with plenty too choose from. We visited the nice terrace everyday before exploring the city. We also had sauna one afternoon, which was very relaxing. The only small complaint was that we had to throw water "löyly" in finnish, onthe stones with plastic mugs.
Location was good. We walked everywhere. The hoteldriver mr. Beranek was prima!
We can warmly recommend this hotel to our friends!

We stayed at Hotel Julian for two nights last week. We'd previously been recommended the hotel by a friend which was backed up by the reviews on trip advisor.

The hotel was excellent. Check-in was easy, all the staff were exceptionally helpful.

The room was at the back of the hotel so was nice and quiet (as requested). It was a decent size double room with an excellent shower. The bed was ok and the wifi worked perfectly. I should also mention that the room had a door between the bed and the main door to the room which was fantastic. It meant far less noise from people outside in the corridor.

The breakfast was included and again, very good, hot and cold items, nice orange juice and coffee.

Free lockers were provided after check-out as our flight wasn't till late in the day.

There are a couple of mini markets just around the corner and several tram stops less than 1 minutes walk away.

The location is good. I was a bit concerned that it would be a bit far out of town but it is no more than a 15min walk to king charles bridge.

I was really impressed with Hotel Julian and would definitely return. Highly recommended.

We loved the Julian, which friends recommended to us. And we shall recommend it to others. Charming layout of the room with warm wooden bed frames made us think of Switzerland. Great windows too, which opened like skylights. The staff was terrific. Breakfasts were terrific, especially on our first morning which happened to be the 20th anniversary of its reopening. Wonderful omelets and even champagne! it's in a great location' quiet, plenty of nearby restaurants, steps away from access to Petrin Hill, and close to all the bridges to the action on the other side. not far from Prague Castle and Lennon's peace wall. We highly recommend it. Forgot to say the staff was very helpful.

Room Tip: we were close to the steps to the terrace, accidentally a great choice.

I chose this hotel based off the reviews on Tripadvisor and Hotel Julian did not disappoint. Everyone that worked in the hotel was so nice and helpful and anytime I had questions they were quick to provide answers and help. The breakfast was fantastic with lots of pastries, eggs, sausages and breads so definitely take advantage and start the day off right. The rooftop terrace has a spectacular view of the Prague castle and I recommend enjoying the goulash with bread dumplings up there since the food was delicious. Finish the meal with the torn cake. The hotel is located in a nice quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town. It was a 15-25 minute walk to the Old Town square depending on how fast you walk. I loved visiting Prague and recommend the city to everyone.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the street can get a little loud in the morning if you have the windows open. A/C u...

So glad we selected the Julian for our first visit to Prague. Every staff member we met there were so helpful and eager to make guests happy. The desk personnel were happy to help with directions, call for tickets, etc. The folks managing the breakfast area always asked if we needed anything...even offering to bake a few croissants when they ran out one morning before we made it to the included breakfast. (By the way, the scrambled eggs at the Julian were so much better than the ones served on the Viking river cruise we had just completed.)

The room we had was plenty big, with ample closet space. The room temp controls were quite modern and allowed one to change the temp remotely. No issues with the bathroom.

The rooftop terrace is a big plus...had a glass of wine there on a very nice April night. Also, there's a nice library sitting area...which sadly permits smoking....and the smoke permeates the first floor when a smoker's used the library.

A huge benefit of staying here is how close it is to the tram line. A short half block walk gets you on a tram that will connect you to other trams or the metro lines that get you anywhere. Buy a day pass at the Julian front desk. They don't up charge for transit passes as have other hotels we've stayed at. The hotel is also a short walk to a couple of grocery stores selling wine, beer, cheese, great bread,etc.

There is a restaurant and bar in the bottom floor. Tried in one night. Not terrible if you are too tired to go out but would not recommend the restaurant.

We would go back to the Julian again...you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the main street and it was not an issue with noise. Good windows. I wouldn'...

The moment you walk in the door, you step in time to the grand hotels of the past. Rich furnishings, and quality period furniture greet you, The reception staff could be more welcoming, and friendly, they keep check in to a minimum, nothing is to much trouble for them and you are soon on your way to your room, everywhere is spotless, with interesting artifacts in every nook and cranny,
Our room was on the third floor, simple but classy decor very high ceilings and an en-suite with a large walk in shower, plentiful supply of white fluffy towels, and all the toiletries you could need, free wi-fi, free film channels all you could wish for. Breakfast was excellent, whatever your taste, there was something to eat. Although the hotel is situated across the river from all the main sites, except the castle. within a 2 minute walk is the tram stop, where for around £1.20 you can take a ride to where all the sites are. The hotel also has a roof top terrace where you can relax after a hard days sightseeing.
