Wonderful location overlooking Spinola Bay. It would be a shame not to spend the extra few dollars on a junior suite with the balcony facing the bay, as it really is an outstanding view. From first arrival, the welcome is warm, and the staff very attentive and eager to help. Ilham, on the front desk, was a delight to talk to, and as with all her colleagues, very helpful with information to guide us through our first visit to Malta. Our visit may not have been quite so enjoyable if we had stayed anywhere other than Hotel Juliani, as its position in St.Juliens offered us everything we needed - a wonderful variety of quality inexpensive restaurants within a couple of minutes walk, across the road from a bus service which could take us virtually anywhere in Malta for 47 cents (they are a tourist attraction in themselves, and we now know where all those old Bedfords went), relaxing strolls around the little bay, and the genuine smiles from all hotel staff were a highlight . The rooftop pool was beautifully situated and offered an even better view of Spinola Bay than from our balcony.The Juliani also offers airport pickups by arrangement (free if you stay 3 nights or more), and free wifi. It seems nobody gets up very early in Malta, and breakfast opportunities outside the hotel were few until about 9.30am. Couldn't recommend any better breakfast than the outside terrace at Paparazzi, only 100 metres from the Juliani, and offering a position and a view worth much more than the very reasonable price of their excellent breakfast. Local beer was cheap everywhere, and good quality. I hadn't tried 'Cisk' before, but will certainly take it if it's offered in future! A bus trip to the walled city of Mdina was great, and the Fontanella Restaurant, with its fabulous 'cake menu' was something completely different, as well as providing a wonderful view across most of Malta. All local meals in our 4-day stay were excellent, and a bit of sight-seeing to Valletta, Sliema, and Gozo squeezed in between long periods of relaxing rounded off a very pleasant stay. I would not consider staying anywhere else on a return visit to Malta.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Juliani, a 4 star hotel, is Malta's small design boutique hotel enviably located in the heart of Spinola Bay, St Julian's. In fact, you're never more than 25 minutes away from most parts of the island, including the beautiful baroque capital of Valletta. Originally a traditional seafront townhouse, the Juliani has been meticulously converted to provide 47 rooms, an intimate setting and very personalised service to its guests. Today it remains a family-run establishment committed to ensuring you feel at home and well looked after. Each hotel room offers excellent facilities, fresh Mediterranean decor and plenty of space. Many also boast unobstructed sea views, and you will be able to watch the colourful fishing boats bobbing on the water from the comfort of your balcony or the rooftop swimming pool. Meanwhile, as a cosmopolitan commercial and entertainment district, St Julian's surrounds you with many of the best restaurants, bars, conference centres, casinos, health spas and shops that Malta has to offer. ... more less
