In keeping with its historic surroundings of Prague’s Lesser Town, Hotel Julian is traditional in style. Dotted with antique cabinets, gilt-framed portraits and maps, its flagstone floors lead to an ‘English style’ library complete with stuffed armchairs and a fireplace. Each of the 33 rooms and suites err on the more minimal side with simple furnishings and a warm color palette. En-suite bathrooms are clean and white and deluxe double rooms have corner baths. The basement restaurant dishes up both Czech and international cuisine and in the summer months you can dine al fresco looking out over Prague Castle.
How to Get There
We spent 8 wonderful nights in Hotel Julian with excellent hospitality. The entire staff from checkin, to breakfast, for touring information was flawless. Staff even knows which tram or bus to take to where you want to go. They arrange anything you need such as an airport pickup, concert tickets, massage, or any other Prague type activity. The entire hotel is beautiful like a mini museum. Our room was just right, comfortable beds, plenty of space, sound proof windows, hot water that never runs out in the shower, high ceilings. Location is good we walked to most attractions and took the tram a few times. To top it off the breakfast is practically gourmet with their own latte, expresso machine. Just behind the hotel is a beautiful park that we spent a full day hiking the well maintained trails. We liked this hotel so much we rebooked for our return to Prague to catch our flight home after touring other countries.
The boking made directly with the hotel went very smoothly. Upon arrival and all through the stay, the staff was very friendly, really doing its best to assist. The room was spacious, certainly for this location, fully in town. The breakfast was appropriate for this level of hotel. The plus point were peeled and sliced fresh oranges, pineapples and grapefruits replacing the usual and standard macedoine of fruits. Also, proposing slices of ginseng with thee was a nice surprise. Another plus point are the lockers for those having to check out and stilling willing to visit Prague before departure. Furthermore, they benefit of a very practical bathroom with shower, toilet and even all what is needed for ironing ! Location is excellent ! 200m from public transport, 10 minutes from the Kampa island and the same walking distance to the huge shopping mall U Andela (also metro station). Certainly to recommend (and get back !).
First of all must give top notch remarks to the reception staff throughout the last weekend we spent in Hotel Julian. The lady I think her name was Marcela was exceptionally helpful. The room was beautiful and we were treated to a welcome Prosecco which was a lovely touch .
The bed was really comfortable as was the large bath. One small note to add though , the curtains aren’t completely blackout and was woken to sunlight from very early on ( suppose that’s a good complaint !!) our TV didn’t work but Marcela kindly followed up immediately and was down to local telecommunications works being done in the area ( and we didn’t go to Prague to watch tv so it wasn’t a major issue).
Breakfast was lovely and staff replenished very regularly .
I loved the art around the hotel especially on staircases throughout the hotel . The rooftop was also great but wondered why the chairs were covered and none of the lanterns lit or lights on . This was one of the strange things about the hotel , while it was seemingly full I never saw a single person in the bar not in the rooftop . I know Prague is a sightseeing and scenic city but wondered how it was strange that no one used the restaurant or bar ?? Maybe it would be a suggestion to have bar open before 5pm so it would encourage tourists or passers by to use it and create a better atmosphere ?? I don’t know ,Again it’s not the hotels fault that no one used the facility while we were there but we didn’t want to eat if we were the only two people there .
These occasions aside I would highly recommend Hotel Julian , amazingly friendly staff , very central ( in my opinion) hotel and we would return again without hesitation . I will suggest this beautiful hotel to stay in over and over.
Lots of love from Ireland
This was a perfect boutique hotel with charm, excellent breakfast, comfortable rooms, and a fantastic staff. The location is on the castle side of the river and a pleasant walk to the Charles Bridge. Although there are no other hotels nearby, there are plenty of good and reasonably priced restaurants. It’s also close to the Hunger Wall and the beautiful hilly park it is built upon. We also stayed at a higher priced hotel near old town (which was nice), but for the money the Hotel Julian was the better choice. Special thanks to the very friendly and helpful staff from those at the front desk, the breakfast staff, and housekeeping.
The hotel is on the opposite side of the river to the old town which is a bonus as a quiet sleep is guaranteed. It’s near Andel metro stop and a large shopping centre and fifteen minutes walk to the old town. The staff were all very cheerful, helpful and polite. Suzanna deserves a special mention for being so cheerful. Our room was a family room and the beds were really comfortable. The roof terrace was a sun trap so would recommend taking a jaunt up there and basking in the sunshine. Breakfast was lovely, not a huge selection which means less waste, but smoked salmon, bacon,sausages, scrambled eggs, cheese, hams, olives, yoghurts, cereals, rolls and pastries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again. Nothing was too much trouble. Directions were given, suggestions for things to see, taxi ordered for the airport- as a middle aged traveller this hotel is a better fit then the noisy ones in the tourist areas.
