I live in Malta and seen a last minute deal so myself and my friend decided to book.
The hotel is in a great location, very central, lots of nice restaurants on the doorstep and hotel has an amazing view over picturesque Spinola Bay.

We got upgraded to a suite free of charge, the view from the 6th floor was amazing and the rooms are very modern and spacious! The bath even had a jacuzzi!

The staff are all very friendly and do everthing to make your stay a pleasant one, nothing was too much trouble.

This is one of the nicest hotels on the island, I enjoyed my stay very much and will be back in the near future!

We stayed in the Juliani for 10 days this summer. It is a really lovely hotel - very clean and well maintained. We'd booked a deluxe room and it was very comfortable with a balcony.
The pool area is lovely and being on the roof, it has a great view of Spinola Bay. It's a small area but in the whole ten days we were there we never had any problems getting a sunbed next to the pool. The hotel is perfectly situated for all the local restaurants and bars - in our opinion it is in a much better position than any of the other 'big' hotels in the area.
We were room only but often had our lunch in the hotel which was very tasty.
We'd definitely go back to this hotel and to St. Julian's. One of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had.

The room was clean and quite spacious considering we had a twin room with an extra folding bed in. The bathroom was cleaned thoroughly every day and the staff was friendly. The swimming pool on the rooftop is a nice extra with towels provided. We had breakfast out as theirs is too expensive. The hotel is situated in Spinola Bay, St,Julien`s(looking onto the quant harbour) and there is a bus stop across the road which was very convenient, the Hop on Hop off buses also stop there. Lots of restaurants are in close proxcimity and the local supermarket is 1 block away. I would stay here again when I visit Malta.

Room Tip: We asked for a room at the back, but if you do not mind the noise of traffic, the front rooms look o...

My first time in Malta and so at the Juliani which I found by recommendation on Trip Advisor. Most of the reviews here are glowing of this property and after staying here for 12 nights in July I wholeheartedly agree. The Hotel Juliani (which should not be confused with the St. Julians Bay hotel down the road) is a small boutique property in the heart of St. Julians, on the main road that runs around Spinola Bay. The road is very busy all day every day, but that shouldn't put you off. Frequent local buses to Sliema (ferries), Valetta and Mdina stop right outside the hotel door as do all the hop on tour buses. But my experience was that using a local bus to get to the Gozo ferry was too hard, take a private tour instead. At least until they sort out the new bus routes.

The Juliani building sits in a strip that also houses a McDonalds, a Wagamama and just up the street even a Pizza Hut. But please explore beyond those easy options, St. Julians, nearby Sliema and the nightspot capital Paceville just up the road are on the hotels doorstep and the choice and variety of restaurants and bars is almost overwhelming. The hotel itself has an excellent restaurant in house called Zest.

The interior of the building is modern, light and airy - with a nice choice of theme colourings that flow from the breakfast and lunch cafe in the lobby right up through the bedrooms. Breakfast was exceptional with an extensive hot and cold buffet plus alternate egg dishes cooked to order. The barista coffee service was remarkable in that in 12 days it was consistently great no matter who made it.

The Juliani is a small hotel with less than 50 rooms. There is a small pool deck on the roof which has stunning views of the area. It also has guest parking in a small garage which is accessed from the lane to the rear. But there is no health club or business centre or children's club. Complimentary wi-fi is there right through the hotel and I found it to be very fast. They will give you a log on code at check-in.

This is a hotel where many people will stay for a longer period so it's important to know what the hotel offers in terms of room options. To be honest none of the rooms are overly large and some of the Deluxe rooms are even on the small side. There are only five accommodation levels each with just three sea facing rooms/suites. Those 15 rooms face East over Spinola Bay and have small balconies. The rooms on the side of the building facing North would be the next best option, I think they are classed as Deluxe Sea View? I had 804 which still had a great view of the bay via a side window. It also didn't get the strong morning or afternoon sun and was quiet. Rooms to the West face over the residential laneway behind the hotel. Rooms to the South are the one's that I think people have complained about. They share a common wall with the building next door and while they do have windows they actually look out into a large ventilation and light 'void' that extends up to the pool deck. So while you will get some natural light down this shaft if you suffer from claustrophobia these rooms may not be for you. That said all rooms are really well furnished in pretty much the same way throughout the building. All have large flat screen TV's with many cable channels, though I only found CNN & SKY to be in English. All rooms have a DVD player.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Without exception the staff were friendly and as helpful as they could be. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. If you're looking for a sincerly welcoming, modern, extremely well located and well run adult orientated hotel in Malta as an option to the big resorts then you should look no further.

Room Tip: The building tapers are it gets higher so the room sizes change a little. The 8th floor is probably...

We stayed for only 2 nights at this lovely boutique hotel and had a great time. The location is excellent, with very good nearby restaurants; lovely views of the harbour and opposite the bus stop (loved the buses!) which made getting into Valletta very easy. The hotel is modern and welcoming with spacious comfy rooms and the staff are very friendly. The roof top pool area is a bonus and although small, it was a treat to have it.
We would definitely return to this hotel but to make it perfect I'd like to see tea/coffee facilities in the room and improved lighting for putting on your make up!

We stayed 6 nights here in May. I am a bit fussy about hotels, it has to be 'nice' but I don't want to pay a fortune, this hotel did not disappoint. It is in a good location, in the lovely little harbour of Saint Julians, with lots of good Italian/Maltese restaurants (We would highly recommend Gululu) there is also a McDonalds which does freshly squeezed orange juice and a Wagamamas. The hotel is on the bus route for Valetta, the ferry for Gozo/Comino and the tour buses. Our room was the cheapest type but we still had a partial view of the harbour and it was a generous size. We did not have breakfast, but there is a supermarket (Scotts) 2 mins walk down the road where we bought food for breakfasts and packed lunches. We went up to try the restaurant but it seemed expensive, so we didn't go in. There is a small unheated pool on the roof with sun loungers. The staff were very helpful, with directions, advice and requests. For example when we arrived there was no hand soap, and our window latch was broken , but these two problems were fixed. My only criticism is that our DVD player only seemed to want to play the 1st 20 mins of any DVD! I would recommend this hotel.
