I arrived at this place at last minute to stay for one night. The receptionist was so friendly that she carried my suitcase to my room as the elevator was broken, she also let me use the reception phone as mine was broken. When I got to my room the decor was old fashioned like something from the 70s, but... More

The staff on reception all spoke very good to perfect english and were extremely courteous. Our room did not have a view, but that was by choice. We only use the room at the end of the day, so a view wasn't important. The room was airy, with plenty of space. It was cleaned every morning, and towels changed etc.... More

I stayed at the Astra in May 2014. The location was good, very close to many amenities in Sliema, but tucked just behind the front so that I wasn't disturbed by any of the activity (only by a very noisy family in the next room, one night). My twin room was clean and very spacious, bed very comfortable. The breakfast... More

Based on the positive reviews here, we chose to stay at the Astra for one night ( we had to check out of our resort but couldn't get a flight out til the next morning). We needed two rooms and they were very inexpensive. Let me say, you get what you pay for. We arrived early and the hotel graciously... More

There was no air-conditioning, although such was promised. Other than that, it was a good hotel. The staff was friendly (which seemed to be an exception in Malta), the cleaning was adequate, the rooms were high.

Stayed over here for 2 nights, and it did the job pretty well. There's fans on the ceiling that do a good job of keeping the place cool and sea view balcony. It's nearby to some restaurants, bars and shops, but just outside of the main nightlife area; approximate 30mins walk away. The hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus can be caught... More

When I first arrived at this hotel, I found the room I had booked had no views at all, so I upgraded to a room with a sea view and balcony for an extra 8 euros per night, and it was well worth it. The room was very clean and tidy with comfortable beds and a brilliant sea view (see... More

This is the worse hotel I have ever stayed in my life. I spent one night in a bedroom with no air conditioning with over 40 degree of temperature, smelly toilet and uncomfortable beds. Plus it was noisy for the entire nights so no sleep at all. I love malta and its people but this hotel is not a value... More

The Reception Staff is very kind and helpful. The rooms are large and almost clean, if you compare it to the price you pay! The reception closes at 9 but they give you a card to open the outside door, and if you have any problem you can ask the Preluna Hotel, that's just on the left, at about 30... More
