London-Malta 2009 Beginning Sandy and I had a great weekend in Santa Fe, returning on Monday evening. So after one day at home, I am back on the road again. This time I am off the London and Malta, an island off the coast of Sicily. I left Lansing Wednesday afternoon for Detroit, then on to London. As a Platinum Elite (based on flying more than 75, …
Recently went back to Malta this time with Lance, although I didn't return with him... my visa wasn't renewed so poor me got stuck there for another couple of nights. The hotel - Hotel Juliani, we stayed in was lovely overlooking the pretty Spinola bay and surrounded by heaps of great restaurents and wine bars. Weather was a bit too hot to do lots …
... the drove to the impressive citadel and city walls, where people used to shelter from invaders in the Middle Ages. From there they could view the whole island and they would have been able to see any enemies coming to attack. We also saw watch towers dotted around the coastline so they could watch for invaders, pirates etc. The trip back to Malta was by speed boat which took us around past the blue lagoon and some cave on the island of Comino. It had ...
... by Martin John, a comedic magician. He was very fun to watch. We followed that up with the Sin City Comedy show with "tasteful burlesque". I could have lived without the burlesque but the comedy was funny. A little colourful but we both had a very good laugh. Before we knew it it was time to get some sleep. Time to start checking out Greece in the ...
Lady. Lady. Excuse me, lady. I blinked my eyes open, sloppy and disoriented and stared up at the barista in her apron shaking me awake. I looked around cautiously. My head was pounding. Sorry, I said to her, as I sat up slowly from the couch I had apparently been asleep on. That's ok, she said. It's just you've been sleeping for 2 hours and I wasn't sure if you were supposed to meet someone. ****. I was supposed to meet someone. I was supposed to catch a plane ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Juliani Saint Julian's
My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Juliani for 3 days on a last-minute short holiday. The hotel has a modern decor, with everything done up in grey/black and turquoise and with green glass tables. We stayed in a suite, because nothing else was available, but it was well worth it: a big room with a balcony overlooking the sea, a jacuzzi and two televisions. The hotel has a garage - an asset for people with a car, as itīs hard to find a parking spot in the area. The most attractive feature is the roof-top terrace with pool, serving good middle of the road food with a beautiful view over the bay. Staff were polite and helpful, and breakfast ample. I would stay there again.
My husband and I struck gold on our first visit to Malta
-we stayed at the Hotel Juliani! We have nothing but praise for every aspect of the hotel.The location was excellent -the decor and facilities first class and the service courteous,efficient and warm.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food which deserves the plaudits received.
We will definitely be returning to the hotel and have no hesitation in recommending it as a wonderful place to have a relaxing holiday.
We arrived at Juliani in the early hours and were greeted from beginning to end with what I can only describe as amazing service. We initially were only booked for 2 nights but added a first night with an extra person. Although we booked into a cheaper room they gave us the Junior sweet for no extra charge.
Wonderful birthday present
Took my partner to the'Juliani' for her 50th birthday earlier this month. Booked a Junior Suite but was upgraded to the Ambassador Suite. This was superb and the view over Spinola Bay is great. I highly recommend you spend a bit more and book a front facing room. The food and service in the 'Zest' restauarnt was first class. Did not visit the 'Meze' restaurant as intended but it was clearly very well known. We had a hire car but nevertheless it is very well placed for buses to Selima/Valetta etc. The bay also seems to be the culinary centre of the island. In summary a Boutique Hotel that I highly recommend.
Wonderful boutique hotel
Stayed here for a week in a junior suite during low season. It is truly a wonderful gem of a hotel, with fabulous views of the little harbor-bay with colorful fishing boats and 2 fantastic restaurants. The hotel staff speaks English well and is super friendly. The bus to town stops right in front of the hotel, so every destination is easy to get to. Even the breakfast buffet was delicious. It is worthwhile to spend a bit more for a front-facing room with a view and a terrace. I've stayed at a lot of hotels for business / pleasure, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hotel Juliani highly.
The Hotel Juliani, including the in-house restaurants, provides hospitality at its finest and is among the best that Malta tourism has to offer.
As a frequent business traveller, I have very high expectations from the establishments i stay in, that's why I found this diamond in the ruff of a hotel delightful! Firstly the rooms are exquisite in their design and the beds heavenly comfortable, I recommend the Deluxe suite overlooking the St Julian's bay, gorgeous view! Secondly, all three bistro/restaurants in the hotel are ranked as the best of their class in Malta and let me tell you... they are amazing, from sushi at Zest to kebabs at Mezze and a latte at the cafe! Thirdly, the staff and management are extremely helpful and accomodating which makes the difference between this smaller more charming & intimate hotel vs. the big chains. Lastly but not least, although it is considered a Boutique hotel, this boutique hotel catered to my every business need from fast internet access in my room to a conference facility. Overall, this boutique hotel carries a big punch and distinguishes itself from the pack, i highly recommend it! Georges B. Dubai, UAE
Hotel Juliani is a great boutique hotel that we would highly recommend. The rooms are nice, the restaurants are excellent and the staff was helpful. We really enjoyed our stay there. No complaints at all.
Just keep in mind that if you want a large pool or swimming area connected to your hotel, this is not the place for you. But it is excellent for touring around Malta and you can always find a place for a swim in Malta.
Delightful and Personal
A delightful boutique hotel with a spectacular view of St Julians Bay. My wife and I stayed in a very comfortable and very clean room overlooking the bay. The view in the morning is simply spectacular. Most important of all however is the attention to detail by a very friendly staff. We dined in all three restaurants. All different but all very good. Highly recommended in our opinion.
The Juliani is a modern luxurious boutique hotel that was once a seafront town house. It is described as, "A showcase of modern eye-catching design and decor, comfort, style, and service. The description is truly accurate of a well run hotel. The attention to detail by the owner is a feature that is recognised throughout the hotel. My wife and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of Sepember in a deluxe suite with spectacular views over the bay. The friendliness and helpfulness from all the staff can be credited to the example being set by Erika who owns this delighlful hotel.
