    Location 5.01 /10

    By the sea, on the side of the hill which overlooks the little bay of Balluta. Allow a 15 minute walk to downtown Saint-Julians, 20 minutes by bus to Valetta ( 4.3 miles ) and 25 minutes by taxi to the airport ( 5 miles ).

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The 143 rooms are distributed between the two buildings of the hotel. They are relatively small, but their decoration is full of charm. They are air-conditioned and equipped with cable television, with a safe ( for a fee ) and with a direct telephone. A mini-bar installed at the head of the beds is also a night table ( don't be afraid of being disturbed at night by the refrigerator motor ! ). The bathroom has a bathtub and hair dryer. The rooms offer three types of view : sea, street and patios. Some of the Townhouse rooms are adorned with elegant wrought iron balconies.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Built in 1997, the Lapsi consists of two buildings separated by a quiet alley. An underground passage, dug out of the rock and nicely decorated, allows you to go from one to another. The Lapsi Waterhouse is located in front of the sea. This 8-storey building houses the main reception of the hotel. Behind it, the room that leads to the underground passage is decorated with a Maltese boat, a carriage, an old piano, a wooden deck and a confessional converted into a phone booth ! There are many elements that add to the character of this establishment. On the roof of the hotel, a tiny solarium and two small 10 m˛ swimming pools allow you to bask in the sun. The Lapsi Townhouse ( 6 floors ) is as well maintained as the Lapsi Waterhouse. We liked the winter garden and its small ( 40 m˛ ) swimming pool as well as the tastefully decorated lounges. The basement houses a covered swimming pool ( 30 m˛ ), a sauna and a tiny fitness room. Some of the rooms are distributed in a tower which faces a charming covered patio and lit by sunlight. An entrance onto the street makes it possible to get back to your room directly without having to go through the underground passage of the Waterhouse.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Breakfast is served at the Main Street. This restaurant located on the first floor of the Waterhouse is decorated with blue frescoes inspired by the works of Matisse. The buffets are very simple and almost disappointing: you have to choose between 2 kinds of cheese, 2 kinds of cold meats, 3 fruit juices, some cereals, 3 jams, some bread, local croissants and hard-boiled eggs. If you wish to have dinner in the hotel go to the L'Etoile brewery which offers a French and Italian inspired cuisine ( menu or buffet ). For all three meals, the Le Bistro snack bar, located at the entrance of the hotel, offers a simple and not too expensive menu. Finally, you can also benefit from the 24/7 room-service ( snack menu ).

    To know

    You can ask to stay in one of the two houses which make up the hotel. You have to choose between peace ( Townhouse and the back of Waterhouse ) and the sea view ( Waterhouse ).

      The Meridien Saint-Julians has top of the range amenities for a relaxing and fitness-orientated week-end (indoor swimming pool, spa, panoramic swimming pool in the summertime). It is also close to La Valette: to be recommended for an expedition into the Maltese capital. However, although the building overlooks the bay of Balluta, it has no beach, and swimming in the sea (public access being via the stairs below the road; or on the independent lido that runs alongside the bay, for a fee) is not very attractive in this urban setting.
