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

My wife and I made a last minute booking directly with the Xara Palace to stay with them for 4 days. The only room available was the presidential suite, and while not our normal choice of room we agreed as we wished to stay in the hotel. Arriving late on a Friday evening we were shown to a large duplex... More

Just returned from a surprise long weekend break to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the deluxe suite with private terrace and jetted tub - if you are thinking of staying here then this is the option I would take as it certainly helped to make our trip special. The hotel and surroundings are very romantic and a lovely place... More

The Xara is an old restored hotel, which if I am honest, was a little tired in places, but that did not detract from its charm too much. We stayed at the Xara for a few days while attending the Bieganski Art Festival in Valletta and this was not our first visit to the Island. Our room was up some... More

When me and my wife arrived in Malta we met the driver we booked at Xara to transfer us to the hotel. It was a very nice and smart gentleman, he was on time at airport and during the transfer he presented us the history of Malta and Mdina, the silent city, from a very luxurious car. Our wonderful honeymoon... More
