It is a real pity that such a hotel at such a great location is not kept in good shape. the rooms are tiny and very old looking with lumpy pillows. the only good thing is that the AC works well. The breakfast was mediocre with very poor quality ham and luncheon meat. the apple juice was awful and the... More

Having spent a week here last year, we decided to return. Apart from the fabulous view over the bay, I have to say we were disappointed. We went half board as the food was not bad last year, but it was very poor this year. Breakfast was a pre-plated 'salad' and there was little choice of anything else. Dinner was... More

Had a good week here last week. Beautiful views, we were lucky to get room 410 with no one above us and the view from our balcony was panoramic. Hotel was reasonably clean,,room cleaned and beds made every day. We got stuck in the lift one evening and pressed the alarm button, which didn't work! Eventually got out by prising... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 10 days and it was delightful. The rooms were basic (but what else do you need a hotel room for except sleeping and showering!) but cleaned every day. Even though we had an "inland view" we still had a pretty breathtaking view of the bay! The staff were more than helpful (one particular... More

The hotel is very run down and requires a major refurb There is... More

On arrival our greeting was less than pleasant, was given a room which I can only describe as dingy & uninviting. There was a party going on outside our window when after midnight the noise still hadn't stopped we complained only to be told that it was locals & there was nothing they could do about it, this party went...

Me and my friend (both 23) stayed at this hotel last October and it was Ok, nothing more nothing less. If you're looking for somewhere to get your head down while you're off exploring all day (like we did) then it's good but if you're looking to stay around the resort I wouldn't bother. The location is a little disappointing,... More

Recently stayed at Ambassador, rooms clean and basic, décor very dated, furniture seen better days, staff polite in hotel, stingy with towels, no tea making facilities, air conditioning either on or off no facility to set temperature so gets to cold in room overnight. You may be on St Pauls bay but your are not in the tourist area so... More

The Ambassador was a perfect and ideal hotel location overlooking the sea and docking bay of Malta, St Paul's Bay. The rooms are standard and clean, the Restaurant an exciting place (it's very animated with traditional décor) and a place for family or friends. The pool is a nice place to chill. Xemxija is close to many sight seeing places... More
