This is a very fine hotel, better even than either the pictures of the reviews indicate. It is old grand colonial style, updated beautifully. It's perfectly situated right outside the old city gates and right next to the central bus terminal, so you have easy access to the city and the rest of the island. I took buses to both Mdina and the Hagar Qim Temples for about $2/ trip round-trip! The public spaces in the hotel were big and well-appointed and the room itself was very spacious with a nice workspace and a view of the harbor. The path to the pool was through a beautifully landscaped garden. The pool area was very nice too, wedged in next to a city wall and with a view of the harbor and equipped with a full service bar/restaurant. The service was outstanding as well. When on one occasion there weren't enough lounge chairs, I saw a manager immediately arrange to have others brought out to the deck. He even took off his jacket and started to move some himself. I spent hours trying to decide between one of the highly rated hotels in St Julien's and the Phoenicia and am really glad to have chosen the Phoenicia. While I did not visit St Julien's, I did sail by it on a boat cruise and it looked like a development nightmare. The pool plus the boat cruise provided more than ample access to the sun. If I have any complaint at all it is with some of the clientele, some of whom seemed to have an air of entitlement about them.
