Great central hotel - beautifully refurbished. Historic town palace - with lovely bar/restaurant and rooms. Staff very friendly and helpful. Love the public spaces - marble floors, oriental rugs and nice pieces of period furniture. Easy to walk to the main drag with lots of restaurants and a few bars within easy distance. Highly recommended.

I had to move to this hotel after the most unpleasant experience at another hotel. The hotel is clean, the room was pretty big and of very good standard. Excellent breakfast with very large choice. Reception staff were unfriendly, barely answering to greetings. I guess Malta's problem is its people, especially in Valletta. My previous February stay in Sliema was... More

The hotel has recently been refurbished and is up a side street in Valletta. The main street is about 200m from the hotel and there and about ten restaurants on the way to the main street. The hotel is in a prime location but the rooms do not have balconies and if you want a view you will have to... More

We only stayed one night so did not test the inhouse facilities but staff were obliging in sorting out a taxi for our departure. Do not expect to get help with luggage for the simple reason that the lifts -as is often the case in Malta-are so small that you can only go up one at a time with suitcases!... More

Charming small old hotel that has been sympathetically and tastefully up-dated. Our room and en-suite bathroom with sea view were very spacious and provided with high standard modern fittings – both were spotlessly clean and maintained that way on a daily basis during our stay. A very good hot and cold buffet style breakfast is served in the restaurant which... More

Everything is ok here, beginning with the staff, room, and food. If you are lucky to have a room at a superior floor, you will have an excellent panorama of the old town and the harbors (including the harbor Sliema). The rooms are modern, large and very clean, and the bathroom is ok. At the breakfast you find quality and... More
