Le Meridien St. Julians
Ranked #7 of 33 Hotels in Saint Julian's
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 December 2009

It is round this time of year that we bag ourselves a Thomson last minute bargain and The Meridien was an excellent choice for a weeks b and b, plus flights, transfers, meals on plane etc for £500 for 2. At that price we could afford to upgrade to the Executive floor which included a great sea-view with balcony and complimentary drinks and snacks during the day. Normally this is 35 euros per room per night but they gave us it for 30 euros per night as they had started closing the room up earlier in the evening. We also bartered the late check out down to 40 euros until 7 pm which was a great addition with our late flight home.

Overall, we really did feel that the rating was more 4 star than 5 star as there were a few niggly things that let it down. Our room was comfortable, with great bed and pillows but the lighting was terrible. You could barely see to read your book at night, or even during the day come to that - and there was no proper light on the balcony. The corner shaped bath looked great and was a nice size but it was a bit of a nightmare to get in and out of. No grab rails, and you had to turn round to kneeling and then grab the towel rail. But it was a nice modern bathroom with a good shower. I think a 5 star hotel should also have a bidet. The lighting was also bad for putting on make up and drying your hair, clearly not designed by a woman.

Breakfast was very good, the staff were lovely and friendly, the lounge areas were nice, the location was perfect really. You can get buses just outside the hotel, or if you hire a car for a few days as we did, the car parking under the hotel is safe and complimentary. The best restaurants nearby were Pepperoncino, Piccolo Pedro (?) near The Barracuda (which looked a bit too knobby for us) The Papperazzi which looks great inside but the food doesn't quite match, and for a very reasonable local meal, Tal Kazin just over the bridge at Spinola bay next to Zest.

The hotel is in the heart of a turistic area and with a breathe taking view of Balluta bay from the rooms . We had Invited some Guest to have Sunday lunch with us and the food was superb,with chefs replenishing the food all the time.The superviser on duty and her team served us with great attentiveness.My guest where happy especially with the Dessert area ,
I had to spend some time in the gym to burn some calories. The best part was the SPA it's the best place where you can renew your self with scents of aroma oils and calming music
Definitely a place to be.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. Crisp cotton bed-linen, large bed, clean spacious room, great shower and wonderful spa treatments. Others have complained in earlier reviews of the long wait for a lift (elevator). We had no such problems. The longest we waited was about 1 minute and most of the time less than 30 seconds. So, either they have sorted the problem or we were there at a less busy time. There is noise from the building site next door, but since we were out most of the day, it wasn't a problem. I note others have also complained of a smelly bathroom. It is true they are a bit whiffy, but I think this is a drains problem on the whole island and not just this particular hotel. One minor issue for us was that the beds were a bit too firm. Breakfast was an absolute delight. I am now dieting to lose the excess gained at breakfast-time! Overall I would recommend this hotel.

I was lucky to find a special offer to Le Meridien and spent a wonderful week there. I booked B & B as I always like to enjoy sampling many of the restaurnats that malta has to offer. So was delighted to find the hotel so conveniently situated, right in the middle of Baluta Bay within walking distance of more bars and restaurants than i can possibly sample in one week.

The hotel was unpolished as a 5* but perfectly acceptable accommodation (clean) as a 4* hotel, with pleasant, friendly staff. The Lotus Spa is excellent and offers some wonderful treatments at affordable prices. I was also delighted to be able to learn to scub dive with Neptunesdiving, a PADI Gold Star dive school right on the waters edge below the hotel. The weather was great with sea temperatures of +20C and the professional dive staff at Neptunes helped me overcome any trepidations and enjoy some of the wonderful clear underwater life of Malta. Thank you Meridien and Neptunes!

Stayed for four nights at the end of October. Requested a room with a view but unfortunately we never received it. We werent too disappointed as our room was spacious and clean with a balcony (even though it was overlooking a car park). The location of the hotel is excellant and in walking distance of lots of good restaurants and pubs. The spa and fitness centre is top class and perfect to unwind after all those miles walked around the sights of Malta. Would recommend a day trip to Gozo which is great value and it is like stepping back in time. As most of the other reviewers have commented on, the breakfast in the Meridien is really good and worth getting an offer that includes breakfast. All in all, great value and definately worth recommending for those travelling to Malta!

We spent a weekend there and were very very pleased with everything.....right from the start where we were welcomed by amazing staff at reception, the room we were given, the view, the breakfast, the dinner and the spa. Although we didn't use it, the roof outdoor area is amazing! We wouldn't change anything and we look forward to going back. Highly recommended!!

The arrival experience at Le Méridien St Julians Hotel & Spa is unique and welcoming – the colourfully painted glass doors of the entrance, the relaxing sounds, that carry on into the elevators, be they of flowing water or birds, the welcome drink.

Formalities are quickly dispensed with and we are given the hotel key cards with access to our 10th floor seaview Starwood Preferred Guest room. Being a man, pink is not quite my colour, although my son would not mind, I am sure, since today’s youths go for colours at all ends of the spectrum.

The room is large, clean and well appointed with a modern finish. There is separate bathroom and toilet en suite, a large, comfortable double bed you could get lost in and a delightful view of Balluta Square from the balcony with the historic Balluta Buildings and church in the background, and the Mediterranean Sea to the left.

Room service is top notch, buffet breakfast is a meal in itself (forget lunch) and the hotel’s facilities, including the acclaimed spa, heated indoor pool and fully equipped gym plus a squash court, ensure you are pampered no end. We enjoyed a late evening drink at the Kudéta Lounge Bar, just off the reception, including live entertainment on a Friday. The hotel is centrally situated and it is lovely walking along the promenade, either in early morning or in the evenings. I look forward to my next visit.
