Have just returned after a wonderful week at the Hotel Juliani. We booked a deluxe room which was well worth the extra money as it was lovely and spacious. We also had lovely views of the harbour.
The location of this hotel is superb. The views are amazing overlooking Spinola Bay and you are spoilt for choice with a great selection of restaurants and bars. There are also several mini markets nearby. Zest, the hotel's restaurant although slightly more pricey than some other places was really lovely for a special meal and was one of our favourites. Try and get a seat on the terrace if you can and watch the world go by!
Also worth mentioning is Piccolo Padre Italian which is also owned by the hotel and is roughly a 10 minute walk. Its very reasonably priced and incredibly popular - again its worth getting a table on the terrace for some lovely views over the bay.
Buffet breakfast was good - lovely coffee and a good selection of hot and cold foods.
There was a small unheated swimming pool on the 9th floor with stunning views over the bay. A welcome place to cool off in the heat of the day!
Only a couple of niggles - it would have been nice to have been given complimentary bottled water in the rooms. There is water in the fridge but these are at mini bar prices so its much cheaper to buy your own from the mini markets nearby. Also the shower which was over the bath was a bit haphazard and for a 4 star hotel we would have expected better quality.
But all in all the hotel was fantastic - pricey but worth every penny and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
- 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
