Very reasonably priced at €25/night, with breakfast included. Breakfast was excellent: an optional cooked breakfast, plus juice, yoghurts, fruit and a variety of delicious cakes. The room was excellent, with a very comfortable bed and a modern, hot, high-pressure shower. Gozo is very small so the hotel is well located, with plenty of good restaurants on the eastern side of...

We retuned to Maria Giovanna Guest House for a second visit and once again we were not disappointed. The rooms are spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated. Above all the welcome and service given by the owners makes you feel at home. Will surely return!

Just spent one night here and really loved it. Homely elegant, comfortable, welcoming look and feel to the place. Run by an equally welcoming and helpful family. Included a tasty cooked breakfast and they do gluten free breakfast on request as well which is hugely appreciated. We were in room 4, good size and still cosy. Would come back without... More

We've just returned from a lovely weekend at the Maria Giovanna Guesthouse. The rooms are spotlessly clean and warmly decorated. The location is excellent both for a winter visit as well as for summer as it's less than 5 minutes away from the beach and restaurants. We've also loved the breakfast and even more so the delicious home-made cakes. We... More

We enjoyed our stay at Maria Giovanna Guest House. Members of the family are very friendly and accommodating. The guest house is very clean and cozy - beds were very comfortable. Perfect location, bus stop is just a few steps away from the guest house. Loved the smell of freshly baked bread and cakes in the morning. Gozo is a... More

The family is so friendly and helpful...they work very hard to make this a unique place to stay. Exceptionally clean and quaint. The breakfast was delicious....especially the homemade baking, bread and cakes! Great location close to everything...what a delightful guesthouse and Gozo is just gorgeous. Awesome experience!

I moved into the Maria Giovanna guest house because I couldn't stay in my apartment rental for my whole stay in Marsalforn. I was so happy to move there! The entire place is obviously well-loved and attended to and full of unique character. The breakfast spread was lovely and the service was even better. My single room was very comfortable... More

OK, one thing first: it is not perfect. We stayed there in September and the weather was hot and humid. So we had to switch on the A/C - but the A/C is really loud, so my husband couldn't sleep. So we switched it off again... then it got humid and hot in the room... I think you see my... More

We loved this little hotel. The family were so welcoming, and made the stay really special by their kindness, attention to detail, and the relaxed atmosphere they create, greeting us each time we returned from excursions. We booked a double superior and twin standard room (fine for two teenagers), the former had more space and an airier feel, but both... More

We loved it! We stayed for a week, 2 adults and 3 teenage boys, using it as our base to explore the stunningly beautiful island of Gozo. Run by twin sisters with help from the generation above and below, they work so unbelievably hard to make everyones' stay one to remember. The building itself is delightful, with an entrance lobby...
