8/10 Very good

St Julian’s Golden Tulip
Good comfort for 2 nights, very close to centre of St Julian’s and party areas. Room was very clean, albeit a bit outdated, but comfortable feel. Bed was comfortable and air conditioning worked well in the heat. Fridge didn’t work too well, but overall a good room. In the breakfast buffet, staff weren’t too friendly in clearing the tables, not enough cutlery on the table, no basic salt and pepper shakers. May need to improve a little on softer side of things. Overall, I’d visit again. However, doesn’t match up to the name golden, as it is missing it’s shining feature which can be improved. In these tough times, they will get through and come back stronger.

2/10 Poor

Awful hotel
I would avoid at all cost. The aircon didn’t work properly. We booked 3 rooms in the same name and they refused to put the rooms next to each other despite booking them well in advance and making a note they needed to be next to me eachother. After constant begging over 2 days, they eventually put us on on the same floor. The staff are very rude. Aircon was awful and doesn’t work properly in 2 of 3 rooms. WiFi is awful and switches off every 15 minutes. Key cards for rooms were very temperamental. They had to change the battery in the lock twice. Only positive thing I can say is the cleaners were good and were tge only people that knew what they were doing. Otherwise avoid this hotel at all costs. You’re better off staying in a hostel as this is not a 4* hotel!

Pleasant stay, has everything you need firstly came to the rescue as wasn’t sure if we had a seaview lateral or normal, hotel was adamant it was lateral. quickly got on the case & it was seaview!! Nice balcony also, certainly worth getting them rooms, after that, lovely stay! Has everything you want! Even a omelette chef at breakfast. Wasn’t noisy either, we were on the 6th floor though. So a very nice stay all round in end, aircon was temperamental & only got it to work on the last day, but never mentioned, so thats on me.

A reasonable stay in a central location
We stayed at the Golden tulip Vivaldi hotel for 5 nights. The reservation and confirmation specifically stated a room with a sea view. Only when getting the room we noticed the view was of another building and not the sea. When approached the reception desk we were told that we got "lateral sea view" and were referred to Hotels for further service. The next day we noticed a change in the room description on the Hotels app.

Awesome location
This hotel is in a great location in St Julian near shops, restaurants etc. My room had a beautiful view of the sea and spacious. Bus stop to Valletta is only a 5mn walk and 1.50 euros each way. You can also take bus to Mdina for the same cost. We had issues with our room but the manager changed our room, although still not perfect it was manageable and the manager (Ottoman is his name I think) is super nice and helpful. Overall I highly recommend this hotel.

2/10 Poor

Poor communication / no room despite booking
We arrived late (10 pm) at the Golden Tulip in St. Julian’s with our two children (3&6 y.) and were told at check-in (!), that they over booked the hotel so they had to transfer us to another near by hotel (600m away). I was really cross, as they were aware that we were travelling as a family and they had all my details so could have contacted me before. I did tell the three people behind reception that it was really poor communication and after arriving at the other hotel, they did know, that we were coming, but still hadn’t received written approval from the originally booked hotel. This caused further delay, so over all very disappointing.
