I love this hotel - my husband and I really love this place. It is very cosy and quite, I frankly think that it is the best place to stay on the island. Excellent service and very well located. Beautiful - would return back any day.

We recently spent a wonderful week at this aesthetically pleasing hotel in the historic Mdina. The staff were exceptionally courteous and attentive in assisting with any request and were especially helpful in arranging emergency dental treatment for my wife which saved our holiday!

The hotel's website is very chic and slick and makes you expect a Raffles-style luxury hotel or an excellent heritage property in Rakasthan. But the reality is a good deal different. Yes, the building is stunningly beautiful and impressive. Yes, the views from the upper floor are stunning. Yes, their de Mondion restaurant is excellent (see my separate review). Yes,... More

We spent an idyllic long weekend here in January. It was very relaxing and the staff were all charming, and I felt catered to my every whim without any fuss. The room was comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. We had a private roof terrace with fabulous views, and loved soaking in the hot tub in the cool weather to relax... More

Decided to treat ourselves to a luxury hotel. It is right in the middle of Madina. The staff are very friendly. The room itself is spacious and the jacuzzi is top of the class! Slightly expensive but worth every penny for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

I dwelt most happily in the Xara Palace for the past five days. The room was large, comfortable, clean and excellent value for money; more importantly still, ALL of the staff were warmly personable and seemed to authentically care about guests about how they might improve their stay. I would happily recommend the hotel to other travellers.

We were greeted with courtesy and our luggage was brought up to our room while we finished our coffee/tea. We were then taken up to our room and were overwhelmed by the strong smell of perfume trying to cover up a strong musty smell in the drapes, rugs, upholstery and bedding. We asked them to stop using the perfume, but... More

We arrived on New Year's Eve and stayed until the 5th. We had a room with a split level - a small sitting area upstairs. Our room number 12 overlooked the main entrance and was a good size but it's probably one of the smaller rooms in the hotel. It was comfortable although we both felt it seemed a little... More

This is a very special hotel in a very special place. From the moment you enter the gracious building set in a quiet plaza, you feel in another world of grace and elegance. For breakfast, you sit out on a terrace, with breathtaking views out to the Mediterranean. Modern, well appointed bathrooms. My single room had a little loft, with... More
