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
Hotel Julian is wonderful. The front desk personnel are all very pleasant and very helpful. They had suggestions for tours and arranged all of our transportation to and from the airport and train station. The room was very clean with lots of space, even with 3 adults in the room. The hotel is located in Lesser Town so it's a little bit of a walk to Old Town, but the trade off is that it is in a quiet area away from the masses and at the end of the day, you can go up to the rooftop terrace and enjoy a glass of wine or beer while taking in a view of the Prague Castle. We will come back if we have the chance.
The Hotel Julian was our favorite hotel for this European trip. The staff, especially Jahn (maybe Johan, it's a Czech equivalent for John) and Marcella, made our stay in Prague relaxing, comfortable, and memorable. They made excellent recommendations and were helpful in making arrangements for tours and meals.
The Hotel Julian is truly the only place to stay in Prague. It is a small boutique hotel on the quiet side Prague not far from the Prague Castle and the Charles bridge. The staff were wonderfully helpful, the could see that we were hot and tired at check in and offered us a glass of cool Prosecco. Everything about the hotel is wonderful from the great rooms, the rooftop terrace with a great view, the surprisingly good breakfast, the small restaurant in the basement and great public areas. The staff was very helpful with all are needs and made sure we were happy. The tram system had a stop just around the corner and you could get to anywhere in Prague in 10-20 minutes. Next time in Prague this where we will stay.
We stayed at the Hotel Julian for a week while visiting Prague and we absolutely loved it. The hotel itself is beautiful and cozy. There is a lounge area and a library in the downstairs lobby which is a bit British in style....very nice to sit and enjoy a nightcap in the evening which we did most nights. The hotel also has an onsite restaurant in the lower level which is very small and very unique in that it is three levels, with circular wrought iron staircases which connect the levels. The food here is very good and the service, as in the entire hotel is excellent. Our room was very large with a queen and a single bed and plenty of room for the extra chair and coffee table. The bathroom was great as was the cleanliness. We just loved the staff here. Very welcoming and helpful and offered us a free proseco or beer upon our arrival along with some information and a map which was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again. It is a good 15-20 walk from the hotel to the Charles Bridge but unless you have mobility issues it was not far at all.
This was my first trip to Prague and I'm so glad my husband and I chose Hotel Julian. We were initially a little worried that it was outside Old Town, but public transportation was very simple and amazingly reliable, and it was also a very nice 15-20 minute walk into old town as well if we felt like it. We were given a very cool top floor room, which felt very spacious with clean decor. I loved how the windows opened out and the shades that completely blacked out the room (helped with jet lag). The breakfast every morning was delicious with both hot and cold offerings, a delightful array of pastries, and a wonderful coffee/latte machine. Hotel Julian, with its elegant public rooms decor, felt calm and peaceful. We didn't eat at the on site restaurant downstairs, but we did pick up a couple of pilsners (what else would we get, right?) and a dessert to take up to the outdoor terrace. There was a lovely view of the castle as well as the spires in old town. Last, and most important, all the staff were warm and attentive. Special call out to Jan, Radka, Ivana, and Marcela. Thank you for making us feel so welcome!
