“What a special place to stay!”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

One of the most charming hotels I've stayed. Located at the Spinola Bay, St Julian's, this hotel is not very distant from the Malta's capital city Valletta, to where one may go by taxi or by public transport. Tickets for the public transport is available at the concierge desk.
It's located very close to an area famous for its nightlife, called Paceville, with bars, several nice restaurants, places to enjoy live jazz and other kinds of music. There is also a Casino, for those who enjoy it.
We stayed in a lovely and spacious room, number 1042, with a veranda on the pools and in front of the Mediterranean sea. A gorgeous view!
This hotel is excellently suited for holidays as well as for business meetings.
Service was professional, efficient and friendly everywhere at the hotel: reception, bar, restaurants, concierge desk. A small repair that was needed at the apartment was quickly executed, without any inconvenience for us.
The hotel offers restaurants, a private marina, tennis courts, spa, some nice shops (jewelry, souvenirs, car rental) in its lobby, among other amenities.
For those who, like ourselves, decided not to have breakfast at the hotel, there are alternatives such as, a nice Café and a supermarket, where one can buy all one needs for a good first meal, both very close to the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the last floor with view to the swimming pools and the Mediterranean Sea.

This was our fourth visit to the Hilton in St Julian's and yet again it did not disappoint. The staff are all very friendly and extremely efficient. Rooms are very comfortable, clean and well serviced throughout the stay. Breakfast has everything you want from a breakfast and in my view is one of the best Hilton breakfasts on offer. The Health Club has a great pool which also has access to the sauna and steam rooms. The outside pool has some of the most comfortable sun-loungers I have ever found.
The only small downside of this hotel is that when they host a corporate event it can be overpowering. During our stay 'New Horizons' seemed to take over the hotel and swamp it with the amount of members that they had there. At times it was like a mass migration of people through the hotel!!
However this hotel is fantastic and well worth a stay if in Malta, the location and views from the hotel are excellent. Drinks in The Quaterdeck Bar overlooking the Marina are a must. We will definitely be back again

I've been to Malta practically every summer for the last 12 years. I have always stayed in top hotels, such as The Corinthia, Radisson in Golden Bay, The Westin, and the last two visits I made in Malta, I stayed at the Hilton Malta.

I must admit that it was the best experience in terms of staying in a hotel. I had one of the modern rooms, and they are fully and beautifully furnished, with a beautiful sea view. The staff are excellent and are very professional. There are many facilities available at the hotel, such as a fully equipped gym, around 4 pools, a beautiful beach club, a tennis court, around 4 restaurants which offer all types of cuisines, such as the amazing 'Blue Elephant', the bars and lounges, and many other external facilities, such as the portomaso restaurants, the marina, the shops outside the hotel, such as Rebelli, Hugo Boss, Burberry, and also there is a beautiful club/lounge at the top of the Portomaso Tower, which is one hell of a club/lounge!

Basically what I want to say is that this hotel has a world of its own. I have stayed in all if the top hotels in Malta and honestly NOTHING beats the Hilton Malta! Thoroughly the best in Malta!

See you in July Hilton Malta!

The location oh the Hilton is good. However, the breakfast was rather disappointing as it was rather repetitive and the narrow choice is better compared to a 4 star hotel. For instance, roast potatoes for breakfast but some times there were no cooked tomatoes!? Also the fact that free WiFi is only available in the lobby and you have to pay quite a lot for internet connection in your room (this is the case in all Hilton hotels around the world apparently) is something that we feel is rather mean in this day and age as we have been to lesser rated hotels where this is complementary. Staff are generally pleasant and we were glad that we were allocated a room on the marina side as the sun at this time of the year moves from the pool area early on in the afternoon (about 4.30/5 pm) and travels to the marina side where we were able to enjoy the late sunshine in the balcony. This assessment is based mainly on our experience of 5 star hotels in Turkey which we have made our standard for comparing hotels. For instance, we stayed in the Hilton hotel resort in Sarigerme last October and the standard of 5 star is excellent in comparison to Hilton Malta.

Room Tip: Wonderful area around the marina for fresh fish restaurants in particular. Wagamama is also a great...

So glad i decided to stay here on my visit to Malta. I travelled all over the Island and St Julians is for sure the best area to stay in. This is an amazing hotel choice and without hesitation i will be staying here again if I return to Mlata. The Maltese people were s welcoming and it is a nice holiday destination. Make sure you take a trip over to Gozo Island during your trip!!

I stayed at the Hilton Malta for the second time on vacation with my wife and daughter. We came to Malta islands last year at the same time and we loved both Malta and the hotel so we felt like coming back; we have been thanked by a very nice weather and a wonderful stay at the Hilton. Check-in was fast, courteous and flawless. Hotel is easy to reach from the airport by taxi and the hotel outside area is well kept and pleasant. We really like Hilton Family hotels and this one did not make exception. We were given a very nice and large room, with a large outdoor terrace facing the pool and the sea. A great room, very comfortable from all point of views. We enjoyed the morning breakfast, some days in the lounge, some days in the main restaurant. In both cases it was perfect. We had our dinners in the italian "Bottega del Vino" restaurant, which was also nice. We are not into buffet dining and we did not feel like eating Thai food so I can't comment about these other two outlets. The hotel lobby and public areas are clean, very well maintained and aesthetically designed. You feel the impression of a busy hotel but it is a pleasant feeling. There is nice background music, elevators are fast, everything is very clean. We enjoyed the lounge at the 9th floor, it is a typical Hilton style peacefull area during the day where to relax and enjoy a coffee or drink, it gets busy at the happy hour but this is absolutely normal. Our room was very well made up by a kind, non-intrusive housekeeper who was in charge of our room during the Whole 5 nights which is something I really appreciate. Also we enjoyed the support and service by all the staff, with a special mention for the waiters and managers at the Bottega del Vino and Mr. Ryan Fennech who manages the exec area in a very polite and professional fashion while offering a personalized service. We also felt that other guests were relaxed, polite and open for socialization, which was nice too. Malta itself is a very interesting place to visit, with easy to reach places for all tastes, very well organised, nature and landscape, history and archeology, sport, food, entertainment, a nice marine life park with dolphins and sea lions, and for the joy of children, the very factory where Playmobil are manufactured. Malta and the Hilton Hotel are definitely places to consider for a vacation.

Just coming to the end of our stay here.
Overall this is an extremely good hotel.

Good points :
- lovely public areas / lounges / bars etc.
- decent sized and well equipped rooms.
- great sea views.
- extremely clean throughout.
- excellent buffet breakfasts.
- huge gym and indoor pool.
- beautiful outdoor pools and surrounding areas.
- very friendly and helpful staff throughout.

Not quite so good points :
- no free wi-fi in rooms (public areas only). This really is unacceptable when paying Hilton room prices. Come on let's move into the 21st century please?!
- 'classic rooms' starting to look a little old fashioned and could do with a bit of a refurb. In some the pool/sea view is partially blocked by rather bizarre balcony design.
- slight niggles with room maintenance issues but these were dealt with promptly and efficiently - thanks.
- did I mention the lack of free Wi- fi in the rooms?

This is a quality hotel and is for us is the only real reason to come to St. Julian's (most of which is quite disappointing - would suggest the area around Bay Shopping be avoided completely). Would certainly recommend to others if cost is not the main determining factor.
