With a comfortable king sized bed and a beautiful view over Spinola Bay, the Juliani was the centre of our lovely week in Malta. We paid extra for a suite with a seaview, and it was certainly worth it. I have never had a hotel room with two televisions before, although the choice of channels is somewhat limited, as other reviewers have said. The bathroom is small but well appointed, with a jacuzzi bath and a reasonable shower. The balcony was sweet, and we loved to sit out there as the sun went down, while we were deciding which of the many restaurants around the bay we would visit for a meal that evening. Thank you to the local band who provided background music for our evening drink!
Before we went, I was a little concerned that the Juliani was down the hill from Paceville, the island's night club district. However, the air conditioning in the room was quiet and efficient, so it was entirely possible to sleep with the balcony door closed and we were never disturbed. In fact, the busy-ness of the bay made our outside seating area interesting. There was always something to watch!
We hired a car for the week, and found the third floor garage convenient and secure, with a locked gate.
Thank you especially to all the friendly helpful staff, from the reception desk, through the breakfast and bar staff, to those who made our room fresh each day!
We also made good use of the rooftop pool. There were plenty of sunbeds, with some sofas in the shade for those who don't want to sit out in the mediterranean sun. Plants and moorish decor, with ever attentive bar staff, made this a pleasant experience.
The Juliani is in an excellent, central position, out of Valletta, but still within easy driving distance of beaches and popular tourist sites. We would have managed fine without a hire car, since the local bus service runs frequently. Try an open top bus ride for good views over all the island, and a boat trip around the coast was also very enjoyable. The bus stop is just across the road from the hotel.
- 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
