I've stayed in St Julian’s bay a few times but always on the cheap for a few days diving with the boys.
This time i wanted to impress my girlfriend with a lovely hotel in a nice location, Hotel Argento ticked all the boxes.
Less than a 20 min drive from the airport (thanks to my Sat Nav) we arrived at the hotel & found safe parking in the streets around by the hotel.
Yes there were stairs going down to reception so carrying your suit case up & down could be an issue for some but for us it wasn'tt a problem.
We were happily greeted by the reception staff & quickly taken to our room on the 3rd floor (303).
This was a lovely size room with fridge, flat TV (enough channels if that’s your thing); large storage, safe & a lovely view of the bay (head out of window & look right).
The bathroom was small but served its purpose (except shower screen seemed pointless & made floor into a paddling pool - not really a big issue just used lots of towels to block & mop).
The hallways to the rooms were all carpeted so no noise throughout the night or early mornings.
Breakfast was fine it had everything you needed & the chef cooked your eggs anyway you wished although he could have done with an extra hob to avoid queues of egg lovers waiting.
We didn't use the pool area because of being on a short break/lack of time but it looked very cool with a nice small pool (didn't look heated) with nice sun loungers around and fab view.
Free Wi-Fi was great all around the hotel which made facetime/Skype/emails/Facebook etc easy to use & keep in contact back home if needed.
The location was great
Turn right into St Julian’s bay for chic bars & restaurants.
Straight ahead for Hilton Hotel Bar, Bar 22 in the tower very cool looking over the marina (tip Sat is 10 euro but free on Sun), also some lovey restaurants New China house, IR-Rokna.
Turn left into main strip with all bars & clubs you could wish for.
If you have chance visit Mdina (Fontanella tea garden for tea, cake & views) & take car to Gozo (20 euro - pay on way back) to see the Azure Window.
There is also Popeye Village, Valletta (horse & carriage is about 35 euro for 40 mins), the Blue Grotto.
Malta is one of the best Diving locations around the world so if you have time go to any dive centre (Maltaqua is my favourite).
