The Juliani lives up to it's characterization as a 'boutique' hotel. There aren't a large number of rooms, but the hotel has all the amenities of a large hotel. The staff was courteous and usually very friendly. Rooms were comfortable and modern. We were on the 8th floor, away from the road and had no trouble with noise. The roof top pool was great, being both a nice place to get some sun, and a great view of the bay. Breakfast was good with a good variety of food and some Maltese specialties that were delicious. We were allowed to use the pool towels when we went to the Blue Lagoon in Comino. It's a bit pricy but you get what you pay for.
St. Julians is one of the more popular tourist spots with a number of restaurants nearby as well as all the shopping you need in the nearby St. George Bay Street complex. The Plaza Shopping center and Bisazza Street in Sliema are only a 20-30 minute walk away..
There's parking at the hotel but the traffic in Malta is horrendous given the narrow roads, wide busses, lots of cars and scooters, and left-side driving.
Check the hotel's website for deals on longer stays, airport transfers, etc..
The hotel is right across the street from the bus stop but traveling by bus has its issues. See my reply to the post on Public Transport on Malta and Gozo, http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g608948-i11647-k7564525-Public_Transport_on_Malta_and_Gozo-Bugibba_Island_of_Malta.html#59388464.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Juliani, a 4 star hotel, is Malta's small design boutique hotel enviably located in the heart of Spinola Bay, St Julian's. In fact, you're never more than 25 minutes away from most parts of the island, including the beautiful baroque capital of Valletta. Originally a traditional seafront townhouse, the Juliani has been meticulously converted to provide 47 rooms, an intimate setting and very personalised service to its guests. Today it remains a family-run establishment committed to ensuring you feel at home and well looked after. Each hotel room offers excellent facilities, fresh Mediterranean decor and plenty of space. Many also boast unobstructed sea views, and you will be able to watch the colourful fishing boats bobbing on the water from the comfort of your balcony or the rooftop swimming pool. Meanwhile, as a cosmopolitan commercial and entertainment district, St Julian's surrounds you with many of the best restaurants, bars, conference centres, casinos, health spas and shops that Malta has to offer. ... more less
