4.3

Stylish boutique hotel in the heart of Saint Julian’s.

A rare thing in Malta, a stylish boutique hotel, the Juliani overlooks Spinola Bay in the centre of Saint Julian’s. Smart but relaxed, this place has a bit more character than most and good food.

Location

Facing the water on the main street of Saint Julian’s, the primary upmarket tourist area on the island. Buses run past the front of the hotel and there are lots of restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk as well as a (built-up) waterfront to stroll along. A few minutes walk one way takes you to the clubs and pubs of Paceville, the other to Sliema.

Bedrooms

Designer comfort. Light dusty blue and black décor set off with ceramics and abstract paintings with colour schemes to match the cushions and bedcovers. Some rooms have a balcony – a few with bay view.

Public areas

Smart but relaxed with comfortable seating. I find the foyer bar here a bit of an oasis from the hubbub of St Julian's outside. The front of the hotel was once a traditional townhouse, and part of the bar is in a natural cave that was extended to create a Second World War bomb shelter.

Eating and drinking

Café Juliani in the lobby serves snacks, light meals and good salads as well as kids meals. Zest, the hotel’s award-winning Asian restaurant is very highly regarded by the Maltese as well as hotel guests.

Leisure facilities

On the ninth floor is a roof terrace with a view of the bay and a small tiled swimming pool.

Service

Small staff – very friendly and helpful.

Who stays there

Trendier tourists looking for something more individual – if not always cheaper – than the big hotels.

Price advice

Prices vary daily with occupancy but not as much as the big hotels. Here they do not seem to fall as far.
