We stayed at this hotel for a weeks holiday in Malta. Hotel location is overlooking Spinola Bay only a short distance away from a number of excellent restaurants. It is a 30 minute bus ride from the centre of Valetta; the buses are very frequent and good value at 1euro return.
We had a room overlooking the bay which was a wonderful view by day and night.
I think there is a catering outlet on the roof next to the pool in high season but this was not in operation during our visit although the cafe staff would bring orders up from the ground floor. The underground bar was also not in operation the 2 times we looked in, but the ground floor bar/cafe met our needs and there are plenty of other choices.
The room was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the bay.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
I booked the Juliani after seeing some good reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. An excellent base for a sightseeing holiday on Malta.

Just returned from a week at the lovely Juliani.

The room was great - spacious with balcony overlooking the bay.

We ate in the Zest restaurant once and really loved it (the portions are big - don't over order!) and there are lots of other restaurants within a few minutes walk to choose from. The rooftop pool is small but fine for lazy splashing about.

One word of caution - watch out for the cafe latte glasses! They are unstable and our waiter managed to pour one over us one morning. Good service however - the hotel had our clothes cleaned and back to us next day.

We chose this hotel on the strength of previous recommendations and we weren't disappointed. It is clearly a well managed hotel offering a high level of customer service. Upon arrival the Reception desk is found to the left of the stylish Coffee Shop which takes up approximately two thirds of the ground floor. Our welcome was courteous and we appreciated the offer of a cold drink.

Our double room was well designed to provide generous and practical storage, sensible lighting (a rarity in hotels), effective climate control and blackout curtains, a very comfortable bed, an easy to use safe, refrigerator (containing a range of drinks for optional purchase) and a desk and chair. Towels and bed linen were of good quality. Pillows (two per person provided) were washable feather and down which may give allergy sufferers a reason to ask about an alternative filling. A hairdryer with a 3 pin plug as used in the UK was provided and came with a very long cable. Unfortunately the only suitable plug socket was too far away to also allow the use of the mirror on the wardrobe doors. Other rooms may have a different configuration. The room was of average size (i.e. adequate room to move around if provided storage space was put to use). The television functioned well but we were surprised that it did not seem to have a volume limiter. That said, we didn't experience any noise disturbance from the occupied adjacent rooms. The styling of the room was modern and attractive. Our room came with the unexpected bonus of a small patio area with two sun padded loungers. We looked out onto other apartments to the rear of the hotel ( a standard view in Malta) and the environment was quiet.

Like the bedroom, the bathroom was consistently cleaned to a very high standard and was maintained that way throughout our stay. Sanitary ware was in good condition. Thoughtful design extended to the provision of a very efficient and easy to control shower over bath, a soft flow tap over the basin to reduce splashing, generous towel & toiletry supply and a retractable over bath washing line. Water pressure was very good and hot water was always available.

This is not one of those hotels which invite you to bond with your room cleaners by placing their name cards in the room. Nor will you find that your toilet paper and towels are suddenly turned into artistic creations in an effort to encourage end-of-stay gratuities. "Do not disturb" notices hung on doors were always respected and we experienced no noise disturbance from cleaning staff.

Rooms are accessed by two adjacent lifts located next to the Reception desk, both of which operate quickly and quietly. The distance from lift to furthest room is about 20 paces. Floor 9 has the rooftop pool and sun deck with lovely views across Spinola Bay. The pool is a decent size for a rooftop and sunbeds are provided together with large towels. The sunbeds are of a relatively light construction (a single layer of fabric stretched across a metal frame) which makes them easy to manœuvre but I found them very uncomfortable when laid flat as horizontal bars pressed through the fabric. They looked as though they were due for replacement.

Breakfast in the Coffee Shop was the enjoyable experience previously described by other reviewers, consisting of quality ingredients and plenty of choice. Items were frequently replenished, even when nearing the end of service. Guests who arrived towards the end of service were not rushed. We particularly enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice and fruit, excellent freshly made coffee and perfectly cooked fried eggs. The banana cake was also delicious! My only suggestion for improvement would be the warming of the croissants and pains au chocolat due to their high fat content. Service was always friendly and attentive and the same can be said for the Coffee Shop staff during the day and evening.

The Coffee Shop is glass fronted and has lovely views of Spinola Bay. The road in front of the hotel is very busy for most of the day and care needs to be taken crossing. Zebra crossings are provided but some drivers are reluctant to stop unless you challenge them to do so by first placing a foot on the crossing. The stop for buses heading into Valetta is on the other side of the road from the hotel, a very short distance up the hill. When arriving from Valetta the bus stops on a straight stretch, just before the road bends sharp right around the top of the bay and in front of the Hotel Juliani.

As this was our third trip to Malta we had little need for assistance from Reception staff but we were very appreciative of their offer of a laptop for our online flight check-in and for the use of a luggage storage room between check-out and departure.

Many thanks to the previous traveller who recommended the use of the local buses for airport transfers if time permits. Currently 47c per passenger and 35c per item of luggage for the journey into Valletta bus terminus then the same again for the No. 8 bus to the airport. We easily saved at least £50 on taxi fares for the return journey and had the pleasure of seeing Malta's sights. A lovely country which we will certainly return to again and again.

We were upgraded without asking to a superb room overlooking the bay with every convenience. All the staff, including the chambermaids and maintenance men (I couldn't work out how to use the digital safe in the room!), were charming and efficient, even in the face of such stupidity. The breakfasts were comprehensive and the staff helpful without being obsequious. The receptionist, Caroline, was particularly welcoming and knowledgeable. This boutique hotel is ideal for a romantic tryst, oozing calm and quiet pleasure in getting the details right, and the area abounds in reasonable restaurants overlooking the bay to maintain the romantic mood, although the choice of food is largely limited to Italian. Get a room high up to avoid the traffic noise and with a sea view to enjoy the very best this hotel has to offer. Highly recommended under such circumstances.

I came to this hotel because of the good results in trip advisor. There is no doubt! All excellent descriptions are right. This hotel is beautiful, all the staff is very professional and warm, from the chamber maid to the manager.. The meals in the Café and in the restaurant Zest are delicious! I had a room on the back side with a terrasse, wich was very comfortable and quiet. I will come again.
