Hotels bright well lit seating area and bar overlooking the dining area in St Julians, Malta


St Julian's - Malta


The fresh and funky Valentina Hotel is an oasis of contemporary style, surrounded by the boisterous bars and clubs of Paceville, Malta’s premier nightlife district.

The hotel is family-run and boutique, with less than a hundred rooms. The superb staff ensure that all guests receive a warm welcome, and the atmosphere is friendly and laid back.

Night owls will appreciate being close to the action, but the chilled-out rooftop pool means there’s room for relaxation when required, and excellent public transport links connect St Julian’s with the rest of the island.

Nearby Attractions

Paceville is party central, and you’ll find plenty of bars and clubs a short walk from the hotel, including Malta’s best LGBT-friendly venues.

The area also has a good selection of shops and restaurants, as well as a cinema, bowling alley and casino, and the upmarket Portomaso Marina is just a short stroll away. The sandy beach at St George’s Bay is a popular sun spot, just a 10-minute walk from the hotel.

Walk 10 minutes south into St Julian’s and you’ll reach picturesque Spinola Bay, where fishermen still bring in their catch in traditional, brightly coloured boats known as luzzus. Malta’s excellent public bus network makes it easy to visit the island’s other highlights, including the beautiful capital, Valletta, and the historic walled city of Mdina.


The Valentina Hotel offers a choice of 94 rooms and suites spread over six floors, decorated in a simple and contemporary style. All rooms feature an LCD TV, iPod dock, free WiFi, mini fridge, safe, tea/coffee making facilities and amenities by The White Company. The top rooms and suites also have a private terrace with sun loungers.

This is a small hotel so the facilities are limited, but the rooftop pool and bar is a fantastic place to chill out in the sun, and is reserved for the exclusive use of hotel guests. There is also a small library down in the lobby.

Start your day right with the breakfast buffet on the first floor, and make sure you head to the Martini Bar as the sun sets for cocktails on the outdoor terrace. Valentina guests enjoy a 10% discount at The Avenue restaurant, located just around the corner and owned by the hotel.

St Julian's & Sliema

As you head south Paceville merges with the neighbourhood of St Julian’s, once a sleepy fishing village and now one of Malta’s most popular tourist hotspots. A seafront promenade runs along the coast past pretty Spinola Bay, and as you continue south you reach the more upmarket district of Sliema. Tourism has made its mark here too, but Sliema is still home to some of the swankiest homes on the island, and the area retains a distinctive charm, with streets flanked by stately townhouses and pubs that evoke the days of British rule.
