“good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

we recently went to malta (17th july 2012), we started off at one hotel and after what seemed to be a long 3 nights stay eventually ended up moving to the St Julian's Bay hotel, the staff are very helpful and friendly, and were quite happy to do anything they can for you.

The only things that let this hotel down was the wifi if you are sat in their lovely reception area you can pick up the wifi free and easy, if you want to use the computers in the foyer you have to pay (not much tho) but the problem occurs with the wifi once you go up into your rooms it is very hit and miss, and as we were on floor 3 ours was alway miss.

my room was 315 this was ok but did not have a balcony, and although it had an a/c unit it did not work but a fan was provided but is a little noisy

There is an olympic size pool across from the hotel but in order to use their sun loungers and pool you have to pay euros per day as it is a members club.

Room Tip: my room was 315 this was ok but did not have a balcony, and although it had an a/c unit it did not w...

If you like partying this is a location for you, otherwise better to look for a differnt location!
It is fine if you stay for few (party) nights.
Else basic and decently clean rooms.
There is small cooking facility in the room/apartment but best plan is to eat out.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor and away from the main street are quieter.

We were also booked at the Carlton and ended up being put here due to a 'problem' with our room. I would not have chosen this hotel for my accommodation and to add insult to injury our holiday money was 'dipped' into and we were missing 500 euros, on reporting this to the management they implied we must have spent more than we thought, i pointed out the money was in a zipped pocket inside my wash bag and I new exactly how much was there, and now it was 500 short, they did nothing about this apart from tell us to go and report it to the police and make a comment about how strange only some was missing and not all of it was taken??? They never mentioned it again. My only conclusion is that the staff with access to the rooms rely on the fact that you assume you have spent more than you thought, or hope you don't notice or you just accept the fact you shouldn't have left it in the room in the first place. VERY disappointing as having stayed in a few hotels in Malta this has never happen before, and this place does nothing when staff steal from guests.

Every other negative review about this hotel is spot on, rooms basic, shower tiny you bash your elbows every time you move, beds on last legs, pillows like bricks only one towel each so ladies if you like a second for your hair your out of luck, no hand towels, no where to place tooth brushes etc lift a joke, breakfast not even worth looking at, walls paper thin and constant shouting day and night.

Stay elsewhere as Malta is a fantastic place with plenty of other hotels to choose from.

Room Tip: to get a good room, choose a different hotel!

This is a budget hotel that offfers BB only. As such there are no frills but it is otherwise good value. The staff were all helpful and friendly, when ever we did have a small problem such as a shortage of towels these were put right promptly and with a smile. Breakfast,which is served in the restaurant of a separate organisation is continental only, nothing special but plenty of choice , certainly adequate and you are made welcome.
The room was fine, fairly large with twin beds. Bathroomi is a bit tight and unventilated.
The hotel is located in an attractive bay right between Sliema which is a quieter area with water taxi access to Valetta and Paceville where the clubs and nitghtlife are situated.
Super lido right opposite , at a moderate extra charge.3 euros for half day in 2012
We did not go to Malta for the hotel experience but as a base to explore from or to use the lido. On that basis the St Julians Bay hotel was a good valiue and friendly establishment. We would use it again.

Room Tip: Try for a higher floor as the traffic noise is high on lower floors with balcony. however there is o...

OK, I read up on this hotel before I went and saw the bad comments. I should have paid more attention to them. The place should be closed down.

I am not over reacting. The night we arrived the lift was broken. We had to walk 5 floors with no assistance. The staff were busy "explaining" the reasons for the lift being broken to all the other unfortunate guests so couldn't help then, but would have sent our bags up later. The lift wasn't fixed for 4 days while we were there, and we nearly got stuck in the lift on our last day when the power went in the hotel. We managed to get out on time. And the lifts can barely hold 2 people in them.

We got to our room. First impressions were OK. I mean the room cleanliness was actually fine. Pretty basic but as expected. Clean towels, clean toilet and shower etc. Nothing modern, but clean. TV worked but no remote (prob needed to get it off the front desk).

Then the beds. Well it was like sleeping on concrete. There was a spare bed in the room so I used that instead which was somewhat better. Then after 2 days my wife and I broke out in lumps on our skin, which we first thought we allergies but now realise were bed bugs.

In short avoid this place. It is nothing like shown on their website. The location is perfect which is a great pity. Sometimes paying the extra 200 for a decent hotel is worth it, it won't spoil your holiday if you do.
