    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Julian Prague

    Excellant Base

    from

    Just back from a 4 day trip to Prague. Can only endorse the positive reviews already listed, there is a quiet and intimate feel to the place and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is situated just away from the the tourist centres but within walking distance of the Castle and the 'Old Town' . What is really impressive is the attention to detail eg. they have a collection of reading glasses just in case you lose or forget your own pair. and if you have a late flight not only can you store your bags in the basement, there is a bathroom and shower room provided for late travellers to 'freshen up'. The hotel is very orientated to British visitors and for sports lovers you can watch all the Skysports footy games free of charge in the lounge area. Although there is no bar you can get alcholoic and non alcholic drinks from reception.

    As for Prague itself it is small enough to walk around but a day travel pass is only 70k.

    RESTAURANTS.

    Try 'U Benedikta' on Benedickta 11. Its in the Lonely Planet Guide and is still a very cheap and good quality Czech restaurant. We also found a very reasonable French Restaurant called Universal tucked away a block behind Tesco's I think the street was Vorsika leading to Jircharich.

    VISUAL CULTURE

    Toy Museum

    Within the Castle but you have to pay separately its small but but has an excellent collection of German and Czech tin toys

    Convent of St Agnes

    Carvings and paintings from 1300 to 1500 superbly displayed

    Trade Fair Palace: Centre for Modern and Cont. Art

    World Class collection of African Sculpture and reasonable European works with obvious Czech focus.

    National Museum

    Escape from the shops for an hour and take in the Zoological specimens.

    ENTERTAINMENT

    Image Theatre Lighthearted good fun value for money

    Lanterna Magica

    More sophisticated modern dance with projections

    Hope this helps.

    Excellent Prague Hotel

    from

    We have just returned from four nights at the Hotel Julian in Prague.

    It is very well run, comfortable and in a good location: walking distance to the centre but in a safe and quiet area as well as being well served by the wonderful tram system. The breakfast was good and plentiful. The price was reasonable for what you got. Contrary to what seems to be common elsewhere in Prague there was a kettle and tea and coffee in the room

    Look no further than the Julian

    from

    We spent 3 nights at Hotel Julian in December 2004, our 3rd visit to Prague but our first time at the hotel.

    Almost everything about our stay was superb. The clean and comfortable rooms, the friendly and helpful staff, the warm and welcoming library with it's log fire, the taxi service from the airport with Mike, the delicious and varied hot breakfast, and the hotel location with the Charles Bridge, Old Town and Castle all less than half an hour's stroll away.

    My only critisism of the hotel would be that our room had a very, very small bathroom with a shower but no tub.

    There are several very good restaurants just a few blocks away.

    The City was busier than I expected for December, but then again the Christmas Markets were on (even though I personally thought they were disappointing).

    One piece of advice if I may for anyone visiting Prague in the winter months, you need to take your warmest clothing, hat, scalf and gloves. It is very cold indeed!

    We hope to return to Prague in the near future, and if we do we'll definitely be staying at Hotel Julian.

    No Chocs on our pillows?

    from

    We had a lovely stay here Sept 04

    We never had any chocolates on our pillows though something I was looking froward to after reading the other reviews!

    The tram system is good - no 22 to Castle area and by charles bridge - much needed after several hours walking around

    Highly Recommended

    Excellent hotel

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for 5 days just a few weeks ago and I cannot really fault it. After our initial reservation about the lack of air conditioning passed we really did find the establishment to be clean, extremely well run and had an excellent breakfast both in choice and quality. Most notably, the staff were excellent and always went out of their way to help whether it was booking opera tickets or obtaining/annotating bus & train timetables (invaluable as they are typically undecipherable!).

    Additionally, the hotel is in an excellent location which is neither too close to the noisy bustle of the centre nor too far away to reach on foot/via the tram stop which is just moments around the corner.

    We have also stayed at the Hotel Grand Plaza hotel and, while the Plaza was slightly more upmarket, the Julian wins overall on location, cost and the overall experience of our stay.

    Good hotel; excellent staff

    from

    Just returned from our second stay at the Hotel Julian. It's not fancy, but we got a decent suite and the hotel really is good for families if one of the larger rooms is available. The hotel staff is incredibly helpful and nice - they helped us find a car service from Budapest to Prague (Mike's car service -- highly recommended -- he does airport and other sightseeing too and you can contact him through the hotel). The lobby area (library) is very nice. The breakfast is good. They even allow you to use an internet terminal for about .04 per minute -- a lot cheaper than most hotels and internet cafes. THe walk to the Charles Bridge (about 15 minutes) may be a little far for some, but the restaurants in the immediate neighborhood are MUCH more reasonable than those in Old Town and it's also very near the tram. We certainly recommend the hotel.

    Birthday Celebration

    from

    Four of us went to the Hotel Julian as a birthday surprise for my husband, we had a great time. The hotel was clean, comfortable and the breakfasts were more than adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful as we had also booked relatives for their honeymoon. We certainly would recommend this hotel and are planning a visit next year for our 25th anniversary.

    Loved the Julian - Check out the Library!

    from

    This hotel is incredible! From being picked up at the airport by their own personal taxi driver to chocolates on the pillows.

    Nothing special about the rooms, but they're clean and with high ceilings feel very spacious.

    Most importantly it's quiet. Too small to attract parties of school kids, oh what a shame!

    The staff were excellent, friendly and incredibly helpful. We asked one of the girls on reception about hiring bikes, and she spent about an hour trying to find as much information as she could, whilst we ate breakfast.

    I can't write this without mentioning the Library. Definitely the defining feature of this hotel. Every evening we'd get in and take a couple of drinks in the comfy chairs before retiring to our rooms (oh how decadent!). Then in the morning we'd breakfast in the same room (It's supposed to be the smoking breakfast room, but we were always the only people in there in the morning).

    A slow start to each day before we strolled into the city. There is a tram stop just round the corner, but as it's no more than a 15 minute walk from Charles bridge, why bother.

    Loved every minute and would definitely stay here again.

    Great hotel!

    from

    Fantastic Hotel, decent location about a 15 minute stroll from Charles Bridge, with tram stop nearby. Nice clean rooms with very fetching pink bedsheets! Rooms cleaned every day, and staff were helpful. The library was a really nice relaxing place to sit with a glass of czech beer at night. The hotel had its own taxi driver who we used all holiday, he was efficient and didn't rip you off like a lot of czech taxi drivers like to do! I would definitely stay there again.

    The Hotel Julian

    from

    Visited Prague in november of 2003 all kitted up for the winter. When we arrived found ourselves in a Prague mini heat wave ! Had a fantastic time, met some really NICE American tourists who shared our guide of prague with us. Local people very friendly, food very filling, historical buildings, bridges, statues etc etc never ending. Will have to visit again,and will stay in the ideal base that is the Hotel Julian, functional room, lovely lounge and breakfast room. P.S beer is cheap but more importantly is very good.

    ... but she wasn't there for the whole ride, so we got to sit in her seat too. (Where did she go?!) We got to Prague at 9:30 at night and got a ride and had to check-in and we are now in our hotel.

    We woke up and were about to eat at a not very appetizing looking restaurant before I whined enough that we left to find something better. We found a small bakery and got some sandwiches and it was delicious. Thanks Alex!! Anyway, we rode ...

    ... are attentive. If you're a coffee fiend as I am, try the Vienna coffee. The river cruise while brief, covered Charles Bridge and many key points of the Prague skyline. I can't speak for the lunch or dinner cruise, but a stand alone river cruise is worthy of consideration. The highlight of our trip (seriously) the Taste of Prague food tour. Meg and I would send our best friends and our families here without hesitation. We will post a full review on our return, but here's a ...

When the clock strikes the hour, little statues on the sides start ringing bells, doors open and a parade of saints and other religious types take turns appearing in the doorways. This goes on for a little while and then it's over, someone called it one of the most overrated tourist attractions in ...

    Wenceslas Square -- heart of Prague --- where they had the Velvet Revolution (aside from ofther events in history). Whilst it ended communist rule, it left behind an ongoing paranoia on the psyche of this nation.

    ... had a bunch of Aquariums in it...what? We don't know either. We ended up at the astronomical clock to watch the show at 3pm. Show is not an accurate word. On the hour something happens where doors open, skeletons pull on rope and things slowly rotate and spin. It was interesting and if you looked really close at the things also fairly creepy and disturbing. Akansha and I briefly lost Melissa. We found her again in a Dali exhibit after looking like weirdos looking ...
