The beds are comfy, the view is to die for but don't get excited about the breakfast. This hotel is very basic but the staff are extremely helpful and even in the middle of the night cannot do enough for you. The stairs are hard to take with luggage if you are on the top floor like we were and... More

I noticed how there is a pattern to the reviews of British Hotel. Some people complain about the stairways, steps and confusing corridors, other people find it charming and natural in a city like Valletta. Some people complain about a cracked tile in the shower, other people mention the stunning view and kind staff. Before booking here you should consider... More

Returned this week. This delightful hotel should be ranked higher. Everything about it was commendable. I pick George for special mention, even fixing coffee at 5 am. David and Chris were most helpful at the desk. But how about having Bibles in the rooms as in most hotels around the world? They are free from Gideons. Thanks a lot.

The hotel logation was perfect with great view overlooking the Grand harbour The accommodation was fine and the prise was little bit expensive according to the standart of the hotel. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ok, on terrace with a view. Friendly service.

I've read some mixed reviews about this hotel but found, for a two star rated hotel, that it had everything we needed.

Reservations were easy and reliable, as we arrived in the middle of the night and they arranged a taxi and had excellent front desk staff.

The British Hotel is accessed from the centre of Valletta down some steep roads and steps, which presents an energetic climb in the opposite direction. No-one can fault it's views across the harbour, with its constantly changing shipping passing by, although the overnight dredging digger during our stay was very noisy. The view is enjoyed from the first-floor restaurant and... More
