Just got back from two nights at the Downtown Hotel. Check in was done in a very professional way by a dark haired lady ( unfortunately we didn't manage to get her name ) she explained the lift system which is very safe since you need a card to access the room levels. Got to our room 309, street view...... More

This hotel is what real value for money is. It is very centrally located so for anyone without their own transport it is perfect. It is not too big and I calculate that it has less than 40 rooms. It is very clean and well maintained and the breakfast is adequate. Actually anything more than they offer would be too... More

We went for a weekend break in this hotel as we sometimes do and on the first day that was a Friday the dinner service was horrendous. The restaurant is supposed to open at 19:30 and close at 21:00. The problem was that until 20:45 in the dining room the lights were almost switched off together with the a/c system... More

We sincerely apologize for this guest’s disappointment and we will look into it so that such things will not happen again, however there is no need for the medieval style name calling “gozitans ………. you must all be ashamed of yourself” which sounds almost racist! More

We sincerely apologize for the perceived “officious” male and female receptionists by this guest. Our version of the facts is as follows: On arrival guest requested us to book her a jeep safari. The company that the receptionist on duty called did not run the tour on the specific day that the guest requested who was informed accordingly. The receptionist... More

This hotel is really nice with a warm welcome and lovely feeling. It is located in a quiet area though centrally located for a little walk to bus station and the heart of Victoria also called Rabat....really a lovely place to stay

If you visit Gozo for a few days and prefer to stay in Victoria to see the Island (which is what we did), the Downtown Hotel is a great spot. It isn't very big, so it has a personal atmosphere. The service at the reception and the coffee shop is very friendly. The room was nice, not very big, but... More

Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, which is within about 10 minutes walk to the bus station and the Citadel and local market. We used the local buses to travel around the island, very easy and cheap to use, only 1.5 euros each for a day ticket. The staff were very friendly and efficient, especially the reception staff, who... More

This hotel is a good bet if you want to stay on Gozo. It's located about 5-10 minute walk from the main bus terminal where buses go all over the island and are easy to navigate. It has a complimentary breakfast which is simple and satisfying. It has a restaurant and a cafe and an American restaurant, Lucky Jack's, directly... More
