We stayed with Carmen and Chris for 10 days in September. Thinking about it now, I believe we made an excellent decision. I would rate this small hotel as a 4* hotel based on amenities. The rooms are spacious, with a large double bed. We never had trouble sleeping. By choosing one of the rooms in the back, we always had quiet nights without any sort of street noise. The rooms are fully equipped with accesories for tea and coffee and AC. By staying in room 4, you also have access to a small, interior balcony which can be pleasant while drinking something in the evening. Two things made this stay special. One is the fact that you're staying in a 300 year traditional house. The second one were Carmen and Chris. They always took the time to explain all the objectives to us, which beach to choose based on the wind, which town to vizit, both in Gozo and in Malta. Because of them, we ended up seeing more than we had planned. And I feel that their dogs are also worth mentioning. We saw them a few times only, but they were so playful with us every time. Also, they surprised us with a bottle of prosecco one evening. The hotel is ideally located in Mosta. You have plenty of restaurants around to eat in the evening. Being in the center of the island, everything is at equal distance by car. The beaches are 15-25 minutes away. Valletta, Sliema, the 3 cities around 20-25 minutes, the Gozo ferry around 25 as well. The only downside of the location is parking. Finding a parking place in the evening can be quite challenging. The city introduced timed parking which makes it even more difficult. With time, we became experts in finding a location, but in the first 3-4 days we struggled. Not the hotel's fault, but it's worth mentioning to others. And one last thing to mention, get in touch with them for reservations, much easier than with the big platforms.

Book this place and you’ll meet the best hosts ever.Words cannot express my gratitude enough to Carmen. She is truly an extraordinary woman, possessing qualities of charm, empathy, and diligence that are simply remarkable. I found myself in a challenging situation when I lost my phone in a Bolt car, but Carmen's determination and resilience shone through like that of a true soldier. Thanks to her relentless efforts, I was reunited with my phone—a feat that, as it turned out, might not have been possible through customer service alone. (It's worth noting that they replied the driver didn't find any phone even after Carmen intervened and facilitated the return of my phone.)Regarding our stay, my boyfriend and I were enchanted by every aspect of it. The room was beautifully decorated, the breakfasts meticulously prepared, and the warm smiles of the staff were a constant delight. The location couldn't have been more perfect, nestled in the heart of Malta's beauty.Carmen and Chris both embody the essence of hospitality and went above and beyond by taking on the formidable task of retrieving my phone. Their dedication made me feel more than just a guest; it made me feel at home. I can't wait to return to Malta and stay at your wonderful place again. And I wholeheartedly recommend your establishment to all my friends.Wishing you all the best!

Lovely hosts and a very nice small hotel in walking distance to all amenities in Mosta. We stayed on a weekend break and very much enjoyed our well appointed room, great breakfast and the lack of single use plastic. Greatful for a pitcher of fresh water in the room, kettle and coffee and very comfortable bed. Hosts and staff are helpful and friendly, and really make an effort to ensure the stay is comfortable. Thank you.

Lovely and comfy Hotel in the heart of Malta. The room was comfortable, spacious, and clean. We were warmly welcomed by the owners, Carmen and Chris, who were super friendly and ready to offer us whatever we might need to make us feel at home. The hotel has a great location; especially if you wanna explore different places across Malta, you will appreciate its central location. We stayed for 5 days, and each day, we found the room completely cleaned up like the first day on our return.Excellent experience, we absolutely enjoyed our stay! Thanks, Carmen and Chris!

We stayed here for Valentines Day and had the best experience. Carmen and Chris went above and beyond for us and even upgraded our room. We also had a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate for the special day. They are some of the most caring and thoughtful people we met in Malta. It is very convenient to the Dome and all the restaurant and shops in Mosta. Also very close to the bus stations.The rooms are very well done and felt very luxurious. You are staying in part of the history of Malta. The breakfast was fantastic and so glad we got to talk with them the next morning. Super fast wifi 200+Down and 15up. Our friends house had terrible wifi and they even let us come back to do a video call for work.Cannot recommend this boutique hotel enough.Thank you so much for everything Carmen and Chris!!!

My wife and I had a brilliant stay there, perfect location out of the action but close enough in to be convenient. The owners couldn't be more helpful, friendly and attentive. Absolutely loved my stay there and couldn't recommend it more.

I was in Malta on business, and my friend and I stayed at the Julina. We loved the central location of Mosta and were able to explore the sites with ease. Chris and Carmen are what truly make this place special. They woke up early to make sure I had some food to eat before my work conference. We also had a very early morning flight back home and we were left with sandwiches, fruit and cookies at our door to take with us. The attention to detail and care is unmatched. We can’t wait to return!!

An amazing hotel with fantastic service.First of all, this is hands down one of the best hotels I have been to. The value for what you get is perfect. The breakfast is very tasty, the owner of the hotels are such amazing people who are always willing to make your experience in the hotel and Malta even better. From the start I felt as if I am a guest, as part of the family and just the attitude and the way you are treated is simply what every hotel should aspire to be.The rooms are very spacious, everything is very clean and well maintained. You have everything you need + more. There is an elevator you can use and when the rooms are cleaned, they are indeed cleaned very well.The breakfast includes everything you would need and you are offered the option to request something specific if you have specific needs.I would gladly stay there again.
