Very Good
Carole from Saffron Walden

United Kingdom

Check-in date:

Very comfortable and clean rooms. Staff very helpful, friendly and cheerful. As not high season when staying there was not a lot of choice regarding dining options. Food served in bar should be more varied and served later than 8pm. The salads in particular lacked finesse for a 5 star establishment and a couple of items appeared to be cooked from ready prepared frozen and at 5 star prices. Some people might find the steps and gradient up to the town difficult. The hotel do however supply a complimentary mini bus service to centre of town at 10am and 6pm. Maybe additional services say at 9am and 7pm would be more practical for some guests? We would have liked to have sat on a terrace in the sun during the day occasionally and I think they missed an apportunity there. All in all, an enjoyable break.

Top Tip: Try the restaurants recommended on Trip Advisor. The couple we tried were very good indeed.

An excellent hotel with superb food. Only drawback was that there was a steep uphill climb of five minutes plus to reach the bus station and the town proper.

Top Tip: The bus system is very good, with an all day ticket for 1.5 euros.

Kathleen from Holywood

United Kingdom

Check-in date:

On first checking into the hotel we were charged €50 per night ie €350 as a "holding fee" for any expenses incurred during our week long stay. We thought this highly unusual, if not suspect? We were told we would get the balance refunded on checkout. We were even more alarmed when we found that the mini bar within the room was unstocked. We made a point of purchasing drinks etc by cash and did not have any expenses charged to our room, on checkout we were told it would take approx 5 working days to have our money refunded. The hotel is built on an elevated site, lobby on 6th floor, breakfast room on 4th floor and our room was on the 9th floor. First impressions were disappointing, the room decor was shabby and was situated to the back of the hotel overlooking a busy, noisy main road which virtually ran past our window, given the room was on the upper floors of the hotel. We rang reception and asked for a change but we were told there were no other rooms available. A bottle of wine was sent up, which we appreciated. Later that night we found that there was poor water pressure on the hot tap and in the shower. So poor that it was difficult to rinse shampoo off! We notified reception and they said that they would have it fixed, they didn't. The room was also very cold as the air conditioning didn't work for warm air. By day three we were eventually moved to a much nicer room which overlooked the harbour. The hotel would not be suitable for those with mobility problems as there are 88 steps to climb to reach the main road. The breakfast buffet is excellent and offer pancakes, omelettes, fried and poached eggs to order. The hotel is situated near the centre of Valetta and the bus station which is very good for getting around the island. Valetta, however, bustling during the day, closes down at 6:30 and it is difficult to even find an open restaurant .

Top Tip: Valetta waterfront is approx 15 -20 min walk away and has some nice restaurants such as Browns and Hard Rock Cafe. More lively though on Friday and Saturday nights. I would advise taking a taxi back as the walk back is up a very steep hill. Taxis are available at the entrance to the waterfront, €10 fare. Don't ask the restaurant to order one as on two occasions we ended up with a non-licensed car, charging €15. Silema is a bus/ferry ride away with more bars and restaurants. To get the ferry, leave the hotel by the back entrance on floor 6 and take the underpass on the other side of the road on the bend.
