We had a great time here. If you want to know more about the hotel's location, look at the webcam on the hotel's website. It's just below a balcony and it gives a very good idea about the immediate area. The bus stop is just over the road.
Inside, it's all fine. Good size bathrooms, comfortable rooms - clean and tidy.
The staff were really good. Helpful on the desk about the bus service - buses to Valletta just take any 60 something bus except the 65. (Double check with them in case I got bus numbers and bus pass ages confused). Good service in the Cafe Juliana - nice to come back for tea and cake in the afternoon after walking miles round various bits of Malta, or coffee after dinner. The room staff were friendly and helpful.
It's a good place to be - a previous reviewer mentions a bit of noise at the weekend but the police station is just two doors down - they often come out for smoke breaks, so are aware of what is going around them. We had sea view rooms - it was not an issue for us.
There are lots of restaurants around - it might be as well to book at weekends. Some are pretentious and over priced - others are more geared to locals - good value and excellent food. We would recommend Bouzouki, a Greek restaurant overlooking the water.
If you go straight over the road and walk round the right hand side of the bay, you come to Sliema. Go left and walk past the Marina area and you eventually get to the touristy hotel end of St Juliens - with shops and facilities to match.
We got the taxi driver who was assigned to us at the airport ,(you pay the fare bit in advance at the desk), to take us to the Neolithic sites. He gave us lots of information and it was a good price for a half day.
Would recommend the Hotel Juliani - I expect we'll go back. We might prefer it out of season - though the swimming pool on the roof, which was worth a visit for the views, would be tempting in the summer.
- 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
