“A great hotel for couples, perfectly located”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Quiet, clean, serene atmosphere, combined with highly professional and friendly staff. The breakfast is varied, generous and of high quality. Pool area catches the sun perfectly, and a great place to just relax. Don't take children here, it is a hotel for couples and older families.

Location is ideal, in the heart of St Julian's, overlooking the picturesque harbour. Be sure to take advantage of their DVD service for quieter evenings in (although the collection could do with a refresh). Welcome drink was a nice touch, and bar on the ground floor offers great, light lunches.

Be sure to try out Zest, their restaurant, on the first floor.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel will be noisy due to the road; the back far more quiet.

We stayed in the hotel in October 2012 for a fortnight- I wrote an earlier review shortly afterwards but it disappeared into the ether!.
I can only reiterate the comments of the overwhelming number of reviews ie it is an excellent small hotel with v.friendly staff. It's v.well situated to get the 'bendy' buses into Valletta & other parts of the island. Also the open top buses doing tours of the island stop opposite the hotel. We ate in the Zest estaurant twice & it was worth pushing the boat out as it specialises in Asian /Japanese dishes & is of a high standard..There's plenty of other eateries nearby covering various cuisines including traditional Maltese .Try Maltese Mamma for a v.friendly traditional family run Maltese restaurant not far from the hotel.
There's lots to see in the Island steeped in history. October was pretty warm so we were glad we didn't go in mid summer as I guess it would be v.hot.
The only downside was at the end of our holiday.The airport was jammed packed & it took forever to be processed. Whether it was a combination of flights all leaving for several parts of Europe at similar times I don't know, but overall a minor irritation & hardly the fault of the Juliani.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back which was probably a lot quiter than those at the front.

Most hotels across Malta are of an amazingly poor standard, so tone down your expectations country-wide.

However, Hotel Juliani is a pleasant surprise. It is in a great location - within easy walking distance of the main dining, drinking, nightlife strip of St Julian's/Paceville but far enough away to not be immersed in it 24x7. Its also just within walking distance of Sliema (albeit a lengthy walk). The lobby is quite modern and the hotel has friendly, helpful staff.

The only drawback was that the room we stayed in (not on the ocean front side) was a little shabby and the walls are quite thin but the beds were comfortable and overall the room was pleasant enough - exactly what you need in a place where most of your time is spent outside of your room.

Overall, fantastic value for money and of all the places we looked at online and of those that we had a look at when we arrived, Hotel Juliani certainly has to be one of the best in the area.

When I first booked a room for my boyfriend and I at the Hotel Juliani, it was #1 in St. Julian's. Since visiting, I can safely say that it 100% deserves to be #1. Our experience staying in the hotel made our holiday.

From the moment we arrived, we were given complimentary non-alcoholic drinks at the bar, and greeted by the very friendly members of staff. We then took the lift up to level 5 to go and see our room. We were staying in room 507 (a standard room), and it was identical to how the rooms had been portrayed in the photos; it was immaculately clean (a LOT different to the hotel we stayed at last year!) and the room was very spacious. We booked a room without a sea view, but this wasn't an issue. We still had two balconies -- one connected to the bedroom, one connected to the bathroom. The room backed onto a side road which was a lot quieter than the busy main road.

The hotel staff really respect the guests' privacy. There are door signs available to use if you are sleeping & wish to be left to relax, if there has been a fault with anything in the room (which humored me, with the phrase 'Call the guy! I don't know what happened but I promise I didn't touch anything') or if you wish to have your room cleaned. There were also signs to be used in the bathroom if you wish to have your towels changed. There were complimentary shower gels, moisturisers and shampoo/conditioners which were replenished each time they were running low.

The hotel food was lovely too. We ate breakfast as part of our package most mornings -- there was a buffet available consisting of croissants/small cakes/breads, bacon/scrambled eggs/mushrooms/sausages etc, a cheese board, sandwich meats, fruit & yogurts (plenty of choice!). Drinks such as fresh orange juice, fruit juices, coffee and water were available on request. For lunch, we often purchased food by the bar -- I'd really recommend the mushroom & goat's cheese pitta breads (they were around 5-6 euros but so worth it). There is also a restaurant called 'Zest' where the staff are very friendly too. We didn't get around to eating there, however, we popped in to enquire about the menu and we were also informed that it gets busy so it's best to book ahead.

My personal favourite part of the hotel had to be the rooftop pool. The pool was warm despite being on the airy rooftop & it's the perfect excuse to catch some rays. The view from the rooftop (level 9) is a gorgeous view of Spinola Bay. There is a bar on the rooftop & the staff provided all guests with small complimentary drinks frequently (I think we had a non-alcoholic pina colada one day which was lovely!) and ice cold face towels. If you stay at the Hotel Juliani, I'd really recommend going up to the rooftop at around 9.30pm (as long as there are no events being held upstairs) -- this way you get a beautiful view of the bay when all of the lights of the restaurants/tour boats are lit & it's an amazing atmosphere. The pool is also generally empty at this time.

Upon departure, we had a knock on our bedroom door with a gift bag containing a Maltese delicacy. This was a really nice touch, and made us even more upset that we were leaving very soon. We stayed for 11 days, and I would have loved to stay for even longer. The staff treat all of the guests so well, and made us feel memorable each time we bumped into them.

Thank you Hotel Juliani for such a wonderful stay and giving us the best holiday yet!

Room Tip: A room facing the side road, rather than the bay, might be best for a quieter night sleep!

We stayed for 2 nights and cannot recommend it enough!!!
Staff could not do enough for us, we had a late flight home and they let us keep our room till 4pm at no extra cost. We were celebrating our anniversary and got upgraded to an ambassador suite which was amazing, with the best view of the bay ( and the fireworks that went off as part of a local fiesta celebration) great location within walking distance of many nice restaurants. We highly recommend the Italian a few doors up called pepinos!

Overall an excellent stay with excellent staff and service. I will definitely return and recommend this hotel to family and friends!

Thank you hotel juliani! X

Room Tip: Sea view is a must!!!

We arrived in Malta at about 8 in the morning and headed straight to the hotel. They had a safe room to store our bags and let us use the roof top pool until our room was ready.
Our room was 503 and was on the front of the hotel with fabulous views from our balcony of St Juliens bay.
The room was very spacious and had two televisons that could recieve Sky news so we able to keep up to date. Robes and slippers were provided and there was also a sitting area between the beds and the balcony.
The bathroom was very good and was resupplied each day.
There is a busy road right outside the hotel but because you are so high above it you dont hear any traffic noise.
Busses stop right outside so it is easy to get to Valletta Mdina or anywhere on the island and it is also very cheap if you buy a day ticket.
We only had breakfast on one day which was perfectly adequate but not as extensive as we have had elsewhere and choice was a bit limited.
There are a number of really good restaurants close by which enable you to eat on terraces overlooking the harbour so we didnt eat in the hotel. Rafaels was good as was the Maltese restauarnt next door
There was a bit of a hickup when we paid the bill as the receptionist put the amount through incorrectly several times and undercharged us by 7 euros. This was compounded by giving me a receipt that showed me owing a further nights charge of 200 euros approx. The call to our room asking us to pay the 7 euros was one that should not have been made. However the situation was rectified with a proper reciept and the offer to pay for a taxi to the airport the following morning

When in Malta Valletta is a must as is Mdina and the Blue Lagoon at Comino
If you go to the blue lagoon go early on the bus and get the water taxi from the terminus for 10 euro. You will get there before all the pleasue boats and be able to get good pictures. You can also come back at your time of choosing on the water taxi

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms on the front of the hotel we had room 503 which is significantly larger than the o...

Stayed here at the beginning of our honeymoon and they did not disappoint. We had a beatiful junior suite overlooking Spinola bay. The hotel is very accessible to all the restaurants and is right in the hustle and bustle of everything. There is a beautiful little rooftop bar with small swimming pool and the staff give free little shots of refreshing mango juice every now and again. The jacuzzi in our sweet was amazing and it all led to a relaxing start to the honeymoon. Our only regret is not trying zest restaurant, but so many restaurants, so little time.
