  • Family with children

    This is a good option if you want to stay actually in Valletta. It's good value and has stunning views of the harbour (worth paying extra for). It's a bit quirky - something of a maze - family-run and distinctly old-fashioned, but that's entirely in keeping with the city and to me added greatly to the charm of the place. I loved it! We stayed longer than we planned because UK airports were closed (volcanic ash - this was April 2010), but the staff were incredibly helpful to us and everyone else in suggesting routes home, making calls and bookings for us etc, acting as unpaid travel agents. Very nice people indeed.

  • Group of friends

    Good location - close to the centre of Valletta. Easy check in and check out. Nice view from the breakfast room over the harbour. Helpful staff.

    The breakfast was very ordinary. Juice tasted like sugary cordial and the ham and cheese had been sitting out for a while.

  • Single

    The location and the view from the hotel (overlooking the bay) was just spectaculor and breathtaking! The hotel staff were all very polite and helpful.

    The Hotel facilities: there was no working elevator on one wing of the hotel, which meant a very cumbersome process of getting one's luggage upstairs and downstairs particularly if one was placed on the 5th floor! Fortunately I had help getting my luggage pulled up the stairs, but pushed it myself down 5 flights of stairs. Also, the air-conditioning was not part of the facilities included in the pricing. One had to pay the Hotel an additional charge for aircon, which is necessary in the summer months!

  • Single

    The view in the morning. Stunning. Also breakfast setting on the terrace.

    The interior is dour, but I don't care as long as my gaze is riveted outside.

  • Single

    My own terrace on the roof of the hotel (single room 315) with a view on the bay and the "Three Cities". the big common terrace with free wifi.The kindness of the staff. the hotel location in the city centre. Room very simple but very clean.

    I have nothing to complain about.

  • Single

    Excellent location. The staff were experienced and helpful but you only get what you pay for, and this is a low budget hotel

    Probably overpriced, but the location is what you pay for. Beds small and hard, rooms very basic.

  • Older travelers

    We were only there for nine hours but that was eight and a half hours too long. The decor is dated and everything you touch is sticky (including the checking in counter, whats that about first impressions?). Our room had all the charms of a Turkish prison cell and the rest of the hotel would benefit from being upgraded to something later than the 1950s'.

  • Single

    Basic but clean accommodation, superb location with great views of the harbour.

  • Couple

    Nice location, nice views

    Breakfast was not good, room expensive for the facilities

  • Older travelers

    Able to explore Valetta as well as other areas of Malta & Gozo. Enjoyed the fabulous fireworks display,

    Fabulous location overlooking the harbour - great views. Good location close to Valetta shops and bus terminal.

  • Single

    Location is fantastic and the staff of the hotel is very hospitable.

  • Older travelers

    the location and the sea view from the room

    no real heating in the room (only AC), tiled floor, poor isolation of windows

  • Older travelers

    The view.

    Almost everything else. Despite the fantastic panorama from the front 5th floor room, we would not stay again. Much better accommodation would be available for the same price in Sliema - get a harbour front hotel if you want a view. Do not have the breakfast - worst we've seen for years - walk three minutes towards town. Wifi works fine but only in public areas. This could be a fantastic hotel just from its location, but everything else has been allowed to rot. I have stayed in several hotels in Malta recently but not this one again!

  • Older travelers

    Location and views, nice staff

  • Group of friends

    Location, and views. Being able to smoke in the galleria attached to the room. Nice staff.

    Nothing that we disliked but the hotel is a wonderful old character building and could gain a lot by a gentle refurbishing, ridding it of its 70´s style.
