This hotel is situated in the heart of Rabat,Gozo and few minutes from shops and restaurants. The pool in the Hotel is small but it's clean like all the hotel.Breakfast is good and staff is very helpful.Worth every euro spend.

We took a tour of the island, and stopped here for lunch - the buffet meal was excellent, and the staff were very attentive. The main meal was self service, with the staff serving additional drinks and desserts.

We called The Downtown last minute on a stormy afternoon during Santa Maria week to avoid taking the ferry to Malta. In the 5 minutes between our call and us turning up with our pet dog, the receptionist had prepared the room key, and within another 5 we found ourselves in a very well-proportioned double room with bath, balcony and...

The hotel is located in Victoria, however unless one has a car it is quite a walk to the nearest bus stop. The pool is small, shallow and overcrowded. The hotel also lacks parking facilities but one can find plenty of parking space in the vicinity. The breakfast is average whilst prices at the bar are moderate. Rooms are relatively... More

We were attending a wedding and needed a place to stay overnight. We booked this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. Our room was a 'country view' with a little outside terrace/balcony. The room itself was spotlessly clean, bed really comfy and the A/C was nice and cold. The roof-top pool was just enough for a refreshing dip. The buffet-breakfast was... More

We did book the cheapest room available on line which turned out to be a dark place with ho real window except one giving into a closed off shaft. Because I am a regular customer and I was always full of praise I usually got an upgrade when it was available. I think they had better rooms available but I... More

Downtown_Hotel_Gozo, Manager at Downtown Hotel, responded to this review

We appreciate the note of positive criticism expressed by this reviewer but we cannot agree with his objectivity in his remarks about the room. We have three different room types, each with a different price. Price differentials reflect the differences in the characteristics of each room type. Yes sometimes we do upgrade for free but certainly not on the basis... More

Very nice staff and location was close to center. I had a room with a country view and it was nice and quiet. Leaning out from my balcony, I had a lovely view of the citadel. Roof side pool was a nice touch but too windy to enjoy when I was there--also, I wished it had a swim up bar...... More

I loved my stay at Hotel Downtown. It has ALL the amenities you would expect of a three star hotel and is spotlessly clean. The breakfast is also excellent. It is conveniently placed just a 5 minute walk to the center of town and also just around the corner from a small shopping center that boasts a large supermarket and... More

We spent a nice weekend break, although breakfast is always the same, room and hotel is very clean. I recommend it. I will be more than happy to go back to this hotel. Staff is very friendly, and there is a play area for families with young children.

Clean big room with balcony (street view), friendly staff. Very convenient location wise 10min walk from the bus station in Victoria, 5 min to the main street, 15min to Citadela. Great base to explore Gozo. The only negative is poor breakfast - limited choice, not very tasty.
