The room size is very small, and the interior conditions are several decades old. It says the room on the very top floor has a terrace, but actually in the room, it is not possible to see outside. It is a rooftop room where you must go out the door in order to see outside. The photo and the actual...

Just for the record the hotel is one of the oldest family hotels in Malta and has quite a long history dating back to the early 1900 s , the rooms in this hotel are all different , we never said anything about a wrong photo was put . The room booked depends on what one is paying as we...

I really don't advise this hotel. The staff is very friendly and the lobby and breakfast place have been renovated. But it was not the case of the room. Very small, with the strict minimum. A bed, a bathroom and that's all. Our agency could have made easily a better choice! Don't go !

I find it a bit odd as the clients stayed for one night and returned for another night a week later . So why come back if you did not like it ? On the first time they said they were given a small room with just a bed and a bathroom ...well I went to check and found two...

The hotel has good location, i.e. close to the central bus station and the historic sites of Valletta. You can also reach the ferry station for the three cities within five minutes (recommended). The staff of the hotel is very helpful and welcoming. They recommended me some sightseeings, that were worth visiting. The only thing that was not OK was...

Thanks for your positive comments. I would like to know the site where you booked the room so I can check about the balcony as to my knowledge I believe I have written "most rooms have a balcony "( most not all ) It depends on the room type and price that one pays. If you can send me by...

Spent an October week here with a friend. Sprang for a "deluxe" room - I think this means a higher floor and a balcony or outdoor area. Our room was clean and functional, but not attractive or especially comfortable. It had three twin beds (why?) and a very narrow bathroom. Our outdoor area (not sure what to call it) was...

Thanks for your comments. I want to answer some questions and clarify others. The reason the room has three beds is beacuse the room is a triple room ,but its not the first time that we rent it for two persons or even as a single. There are two doors to leading out to a huge terrace , or if...

I love coming to eat at the British whenever I'm in valletta. After a day of visiting the museums in Valletta, my friend and I ate at the new Panorama restaurant, which is part of the hotel. The view never ceases to impress me and the food is excellent. Lunch at this restaurant really made my day and the waiters...

I stayed here for 4 days in November on business and would definitely go back. The staff were so friendly and helpful, right from the warm welcome when I arrived. It's centrally located, so very convenient for visiting the old town - just be ready for all the steps and hills! The restaurant was excellent, really good food, friendly service...

We stayed at the British Hotel the first days of our Malta trip The hotel is located in the old city which makes sightseeing a very easy walk. The staff were very courteous and helpful. There are restaurants, bars and shops close by. The view over the harbor is relaxing.

I was in Malta for the first time and attended the 2016 Junior Eurovision song contest and stayed in the British hotel in Valletta for 7 nights. I picked the hotel as it was close to the venue and could walk the 700 meters to the venue daily. Also as we were three people sharing, we needed a room with...

We decided at short notice on a break in fascinating Valletta and delightful Malta. The British Hotel was one of only a few available. It's very well located just a short walk up the hill to the cathedral and city centre. It overlooks the Grand Harbour and so enjoys fabulous views across to the "Three Cities". The reception and bar...
