"Unbelievably good" Hotel Juliani Tip by wls3

Hotel Juliani, Saint Julian's: 1,272 reviews and 5 photos

In Malta on business and after a week's stay at the run down Crowne Plaza - expensive, unmaintained and poorly situated - I looked at another "5 star" mausoleum, the Corinthia San Gorg, which is undergoing some construction work, leaving it's ugly reception area smelling like a chemical factory.

By fortuitous circumstance I came across an absolute diamond - the smaller boutique Hotel Juliani, overlooking the end of picturesque Spinola Bay; arguably the prettiest spot in Malta. What a relief from the agony at Crowne Plaza. Only two years old, the Juliani has all anyone might wish in a top notch hotel: high speed internet, terrific restaurant, modern/clean decor and an accommodating staff that shamelessly spoil the clientele. When I ran into a snag with my internet, the manager, George Rouvelas, took time from his busy schedule to personally fix the problem....with a genuine smile.

The breakfast arrangement is another endearing quality. All in all I can't say enough good about the Juliani, and that from a person who spends a lot of time on the road. I don't hesitate to recommend a stay there, but to fully appreciate the location try to book a room with sea view - from the intimate individual terrace it's great just to relax and enjoy the scene.

Unique Qualities: Aside from the hotel itself, there is a plethora of truly excellent restaurants -- Continental, Chinese, seafood, national, eclectic -- all within five or so minutes walk. For the fast food addict there's a McDonalds next door and a Pizza Hut just up the hill....but forget that. Instead, hit the popular Paparazzi just across the road and really enjoy what you're eating.
