The ambience of Xara is so restful you can't help but unwind. The panoramic views from the restaurant are equalled only by the quality of the food and the courtesy of the service provided. Mdina is a joy, particularly of an evening when the other tourists have left. We are saving up to return!!!

We liked everything about this hotel, the warm and friendly staff, the hotel is elegant and extremely peaceful. The hotel is set inside Mdina city inside the bastion walls. A beautiful hotel with two excellent restaurants, the Trattoria at the side of the hotel was first class and we spent most of our evenings eating there. We visited Mdina for... More

We liked this hotel, although when we arrived, we discovered that the duplex room we reserved had the bathroom and bedroom on different floors. This was not acceptable to us (and never disclosed in the description of the room), so we asked to be moved. They were almost fully booked, so would only agree to move us to a higher... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very quiet location and lovely to walk around the city at night when it is quieter. The room was quite large and duplex with a sitting area up on a mezzanine. The hotel is very old and a bit quirky but that is part of the charm. Excellent breakfast each day... More

We have booked a late summer short break in Malta to get a little sun. The hotel is reputed to be one of the best on the island. We booked one of the rooms with a hot tub and balcony with a view. The palace is owned by a family and it is nice to see various objects and pictures... More

One of the best dinner in my life in the terraza restaurant. It was years ago, but I can still remember the unique fresh sea urchins flavor viewing the malta campiña down the hill . Hotel very comfortable and optimal located in the medieval city of Mdina. Zero complains , except that it is very difficult to get a room... More

We had a week long stay at the Xara Palace. The Hotel benefits from a great location in Mdina, is quiet and in easy walking distance of a number of Restaurnats within Mdina itself. The Hotel is one of the best on the Island but is showing its age, is a little tired in places and not a 5* by... More

We stayed a week here in August for our honeymoon in a deluxe suite with Jacuzzi. It was the most perfect week of 'getting away from it all' that we could have wished for. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and every request we made was carried out with a smile. There was a small incident of miscommunication... More
