I chose the Juliani as the base for a week’s holiday in Malta based on reviews in TripAdviser, and I was not disappointed. The hotel is ideally located at the head of Spinola Bay and has excellent bus connections to Sliema, Valletta and other parts of the island. Even though we were travelling out of peak season the buses were regular, reliable, and cheap. There is a wide range of competitively priced restaurants within easy walking distance, and the hotel has its own eatery, Zest, which we did not use, but which is highly rated.
The Juliani has 44 rooms and is light, airy, clean and comfortable. There are great views over the Bay if you choose a room with a balcony facing the sea. The entrance to the hotel doubles as an art gallery, displaying pictures and photos by local artists. The breakfast bar is on the same level, and we enjoyed an excellent buffet of cold and cooked dishes before we set off on our travels each morning.
Perhaps the thing that particularly sets the Juliani apart from hotels in a similar price range is the friendliness of the staff. From receptionists, to bar staff, to breakfast waiters, to cleaners, we found everyone helpful, friendly, and concerned about out comfort and welfare.
If ever I return to Malta – and I’m tempted – I would certainly make sure that there was a room available at the Juliani before booking my journey.
- 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
