A great hotel for weekend breaks or short sightseeing trips such as ours. Good food, comfy beds and very helpful staff in a very convenient location for Valetta!!
Very Good
7.7 Very Good
  • Roger from Cradley Heath
  • United Kingdom
We enjoyed our stay, nice big rooms, lovely indoor pool open 24 hours a day. Lots of steps (about 80) at front of hotel to get into town or bus station. We ate in the hotel a couple of times because we were too shattered to walk up the hill again.
8.9 Excellent
  • David from Burton Upon Trent
  • United Kingdom
Wonderful hotel, very comfortable. A bit limited on choice of food, probably because it is early in the season. I would recommend this hotel.
9.7 Exceptional
  • Vilma from Stonehouse
  • United Kingdom
Excellent location for Valetta town and bus station, although we had no problem with location as it's on the waterfront, I must point out that to access the hotel there are either about 80 steps or a slope to walk up or down, unless you are in a car.
The Hotel lived up to my expectations, from the grand entrance, to the helpful reception, bar and housekeeping staff.
Although we booked a basic room, it was a very comfortable spacious room on the 9th floor, with an equally spacious en suite with bath and separate shower, shower gel etc, dressing robe, slippers and tea/coffee making facilities.
We made use of the self service breakfast restaurant one morning (extra cost) and had an early morning swim in indoor swimming pool eary most morinings, unfortunately the weather was too cold to use the outdoor pool.
Taking everything into consideration, we had great value for money and would definitely recommend and use this hotel again.
Top Tip: Use the Buses - only 1.50 euros per person per DAY.
