A new apartment experience is coming to Prague this July, in the form of The Julius.
Founded by the storied Julius Meinl family, retail pioneers and creators of the Viennese food emporium Julius Meinl am Graben, The Julius draws on a 160-year legacy of service, quality and innovation, and marks the family’s first entry into the world of travel.
The property, which will offer both short and long-term stays, will balance luxury and modern design with warmth, comfort and convenience. Tech-enabled services, self-check-in and contactless room entry are complemented by spacious communal areas, relaxing lounges and professional co-working spaces, as well as on-site shops and restaurants.
The Julius Prague will launch within a reimagined art deco building and is designed by leading Italian architects, Matteo Thun & Partners. A central light-filled conservatory sits at the heart of the building and guides guests to 168 individual residences, complete with living rooms and separate bedroom spaces, with many featuring an open-plan kitchen.
Residences, communal areas and restaurants will offer soft furnishings and an autumnal colour palette, inspired by the works of the celebrated Czech artist Alphonse Mucha. Amenities will be combined with elegant yet homely features such as oak wood floors, soft linen sheets and contemporary bathrooms.
“For over 160 years, the Julius Meinl name has been synonymous with finesse, tradition and quality,” comments Julius Meinl Vl., co-founder of The Julius. “Honouring our founding principles, the creation of The Julius is an exciting moment to not only look back on our legacy but to also establish a new future. It offers a chance to bring the expertise, experience, and enthusiasm of the Meinl family to a new sphere of hospitality, to a new audience and to new destinations.
“Good customer service, quality products and an environment to embrace innovation – three simple yet fundamental values that underpin everything we do. Our aim is to set the highest possible benchmark in the hospitality sector.”
