“Walking distance to some high quality restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Old fashioned rooms but very spacious. Great location. You can pay more for the modern rooms which do not have very good views. Walking distance to bus stop and also to modern harbour which looks like Poole harbour UK! Good facilities for kids and the elderly or for a quick long weekend break. Much better location and better history and culture than going to The Canary Islands. Only one golf course so not a golfing island!!

Spent four nights here with my wife on our anniversary. Initially we were given a twin room in the older part of the hotel but when I told them that we had requested a double they offered us an upgrade to an executive room in the new part of the hotel for 50 euros extra per night. The hotel was full so I begrudgingly paid and was very surprised how different the newer rooms were. The standard was superb and the bed very comfortable. The best thing about this hotel is the facilities. They had everything we wanted within the complex and some of the best restaurants in Malta were just outside in the upmarket Portomaso area. The spa and pool/gym facilities were top notch. Executive lounge access was great, although we have been elsewhere with better canapés and drinks assortments (I'm being very picky here). Breakfast and Blue Elephant restaurant were fantastic; the Zeri italian and Zen Sushi restaurant in Portomaso count amongst the best I have ever dined in. We both enjoyed ourselves so much that we will come back for a week with the kids next summer.

My wife and I spent 11 nights here recently and were very happy with the hotel. I have to say though that since I am a diamond hhonors member I appreciate that my experience is definitely better than if I were not.

We arrived very late and were happy to find that we had been upgraded to an executive suite which was extremely comfortable with a lounge, large bedroom, bathroom and balcony overlooking the herb garden. The bed was a very comfortable king size with soft pillows and we slept well every night. One of the nice touches was the 'daily treat', each day we came back to the room to find a small gift, biscuits, water or wine. We also had use of the executive lounge for breakfast which was good, even having hot food which is not always the case, and the staff were very helpful, it was a good way to start the day on the sunny balcony overlooking the pool. We also used it in the afternoons for tea and cakes, also delicious.

The hotel pools were very clean, if a bit cold in the outdoor ones, the indoor one was fine. My wife used the spa for a massage which she said was great, only thing missing was a relaxation area afterwards.

We ate at the Blue Elephant once which was a great meal and good value for what you got (see my separate review) but we didn't use the other restaurants or bars as we had the exec lounge and many good restaurants close by, the Portamasao cafe nearby would be a good alternative to the expensive hotel breakfast.

The only thing to be aware of is that October is considered to be winter in Malta (28C sunshine every day though) and so some of the facilities and restaurants were closed.

So, as I say, my hhonors status made the stay even better but I think it would still have been very good without that.

My wife and I spent a very pleasant week in Malta starting 13/10/12. This hotel provided us with the 'feel good' factor particularly because of the very pleasant and helpful staff and the well appointed standard of the public areas and our room. The meals we enjoyed in the hotel were all excellent as was the service. We were made very welcome in the executive lounge and thoroughly enjoyed the refreshments and snacks. I was delighted to realise how much my tips to staff were appreciated - obviously what was not a lot to me meant something to them both financhially and to know that I valued their service.- It really is worthwhile showing this recognition sooner rather than later.

Room Tip: Look out for Hilton offers and develope your Hilton Honours for extra perks!

Dear X6MAN,

Thank you very much for your comments.
The executive lounge is indeed a very nice place to relax in and enjoy the great views of both our pools and of the mediterranean sea.

We are very glad you had a pleasant week with us and I hope this will lead to many others.
Kind regards

We spent a week at the Hilton as we had never visited Malta in all the years we have been taking holidays abroad. This was because of the glowing reviews we read whilst doing our research. Yes I have to say that the Hilton was definately the best hotel we have staying in yet.
It was extremely clean and the bedrooms very large. There was carpet on the hallways so there was never any sound of footsteps to disturb you. Our room had a balcony overlooking the marina so it was very quiet.The beds were really comfortable and I especially liked the fact that you slept under a duvet and had squishy pillows. This was a new experience for us as all the other hotels we have stayed in have had those bedcovers on them that you know other guests have laid on and they would be too expensive to keep laundering.
The only problem we did have was noise from the lifts...in the end it got so bad and we complained. The management were marvellous and after hearing the noise for themselves they actually shut down the offending lift for the night. However, this did not resolve our problem as it put extra loads on the other lifts and they became noisey too! The management were yet again wonderful and changed our room. Shame this was for just for our last night. It was a very large room and carpeted with a lovely view of the pool area and sea. Honestly the staff and management could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. I must not forget to mention the wonderful breakfast buffet. Wow it was amazing. The hot food was actually hot and the fresh fruits,yoghurts, breads, pastries, cakes etc. were to die for. Also you could have eggs/omelette freshly cooked by a chef. Yes we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hilton if it had not been for the hotel we would have tried to get an earlier flight home!......as they say you either love Malta or hate it.

Room Tip: Don't have room 1001 due to lift noise.

Dear orrid422

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to share your comments with us

The lift concerned is one of the oldest elevators in our hotel and also an extremely busy one. We will in the very near future be undertaking some major work on this elevator and at this time will examine if there is anything we can do to make it operate any smoother and faster. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you again for your comments
Kind regards

I have just returned from a week holiday at the Hilton Malta, St Julians with my partner and We had a fantastic holiday and cannot fault this hotel in any way. All-round attention to detail, friendliness and professionalism made our 6 nights there a real pleasure. Breakfast was wonderful, you name it you could have it, fresh fruits, freshly cooked bacon and eggs, pancakes, pastries everything so yummy. The room was spacious, clean & bright. The view from our window was simply breathtaking, the lit marina, the beautiful boats, and the endless sea. It was a peaceful place to stay. The Hilton Malta is definately worthy of it's 5 stars. really looking forward to go back

I decided to write this review as I appreciated other reviews when trying to decide on our honeymoon. We are just back from spending our 10 nights at the Hilton St Julians Malta and we really enjoyed it. The hotel is fabulous and very professional staff. The housekeeping were excellent every day and never disturbed us before we left the room any day. We always came back to a cleaned room with fresh towels and toiletries topped up. The spa, pools, sun lounging area are all brilliant. The hotel location is ideal and the only traffic is dropping off or picking up people. We travelled around alot of the island and to us St Julians is the nicest resort being on the marina with loads of restaurants to choose from. There is loads to do in Malta. Excellent public transport system with very frequent buses to popular areas to visit such Sliema and Valetta for shopping. There are other beautiful areas to visit with loads of tour options morning/afternoon/evening or full day trips. The Hop on/hop off buses are also convenient and frequent for sight seeing. Eating and drinking, overall cost of living is more affordable than Ireland! The only downside at the Hilton is the price of food and drink at the hotel. If it had been less pricey we would have been quite happy to stay around the hotel some nights for eating and drinks but when you can get it for half at a stroll down the street, then why not.... But overall we would not hesitate to go back to the Hilton Malta and recommend others not to hesitate choosing this hotel and we definitely look forward to a future trip there.

Room Tip: Sea view room was nice and no noise disturbance from back of hotel as you might expect
