Radisson Blu Resort, Malta St Julian's

Reviewed March 2, 2013

We have just arrived back from a week's stay at the Radisson Blu, St Julian's. Our room was overlooking the car park, which was a disappointment at the time as we had asked for a high room and didn't get it. However, the room itself had a 'lateral' seaview and was larger than we expected. Others have said the furniture is tired and dated but we found it perfectly acceptable and our room was clean and airy. We were extremely pleased with the reception staff and the concierge was also most helpful and courteous. He made our holiday so much better with his advice. Overall, we were impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and the excellent staff. The waiters at breakfast were very efficient and the food lovely. We would definitely recommend this hotel for holidaying in Malta and I hope to revisit with my son in the very near future.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the car park so was not entirely ideal but after the intial disappointment we fo...

Half the hotel seems be having a refurb, so site of crane at front of hotel was a bit off putting, but the refurb didn't effect our holiday at all.
Arrived early morning and room wasn't ready so reception took care of our luggage, we had a complimentary drink in the bar and then when to explore area, reception phoned us hour later to notify us that room was ready.
Room was very spacious, clean and modern decor, with great sea views, though bathroom was well fitted out, the grouting was looking grubby in places.
Breakfast service was best we've ever had, the self service choice and quality was amazing. Staff all very friendly and helpful and problem we had with our tv was sorted promptly.
Hotel is located in very quiet location, about 10/15 minute walk into St Georges, ideal if you're looking for a tranquil setting.

Room Tip: 7th floor has large function room so make sure you're room isn't close to this area. Sea vie...

Yes it's a little tired in places eg corridor carpet but it's being reburbished. Refurb didn't affect us at all. Our room was great, sea view floor 7. Clean, free wifi in room. Old tv but we didn't watch it anyway! Staff are awesome, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast also excellent, buffet style - full cooked, cereal, fruit, cheeses and meats, bread. We didn't need lunch each day. We ate in either the bar or bistro each night, excellent food huge portions. Happy hour in the bar 1830-1930 half price local wine and beer, both very good. Welcome drinks with staff, vouchers for deals on food and cocktails. Shuttle service to local areas, Sleima and Valletta. Indoor pool small with a not too hot spa. Rather hard to swim in due to folk with kids dominating at times. Had a great massage.

This Radisson property is located in St. Julians but a little bit far from the city center. It's good choice for people looking for quiet location far from night life and busy streets. The staff in all departaments were friendly and polite. Check-in/out was fast however my Gold Carlson status wasn't recognized although the number was given during check-in process (in this case my reservation wasn't made on Radisson site). But no matter. My room was spacious and comfy with all I needed but the decor and furniture are a little bit outdated. Free Wi-Fi, clean bathroom as the advantage. The breakfast buffet (included in the rate) was O.K. with good choice of food and good quality. The healt club was overall disappointing, excluding gym there is only one, rather small indoorpool and very average sauna.

Participating to the half marathon in Malta, I also booked 3 nights in this hotel, partner to the event. Big disappointment since the facilities need a serious overhaul : the whole thing is really tired. Works are being undertaken and workers are actively there from 8am...
I was positively impressed by the friendliness of the staff, be it at the reception or in the restaurant but unfortunately, this does not offset the poor environment and lack of cleanliness. Rooms are OK although not very spacious (nice balcony) but bathrooms are old!!! A pitfall to be aware of in Malta is the toilet flush (we were advised to "push hard and fast")! Breakfast buffet is also disappointing. But by far, the pool and changing room get the shock award: this is absolutely dirty (and jacuzzi is cold) so I did not even try to go the the Spa. Should I go back to Malta, I would probably not stay there and could not really recommend it.

We returned from The Radisson Blu on 16th February following an excellent week's stay. Everyone at the hotel was exceptional in their care and courtesy of their guests. The good in the Bistro restaurant and breakfast in the Kon Tiki were both excellent with plenty of choice and very good value. Our room overlooked the pool bar and the sea and we couldn't have wished for better. We would certain return to this hotel.

Great location outside the hussel and bussel, nearly all rooms have a view to the sea, clean, freindly and very, very good service. My wife and I ran the Malta Marathon and looked for a nice place to stay and found it. Located a little outside the hussel and bussel the Radison offers clean and tidy rooms with a great view to the sea. The service is very freindly and courteous. We had lunch on the terrace in the sunshine escaping the cold, icy European Winter. A taxi to the Airport costs 20 Eur and to the city center of Sliema 15. Make sure to fix the rates upfront. In the afternoon we jogged to Sliema along the waterfront... This is about a 6km stretch. An excellent service was also the free of charge shuttle to the Marathon start. All in all a great place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views!
