Just returned from Malta after a few days with friends and a couple of nights at the Astra. We had a sea view room and balcony which was lovely in the evening. The hotel was clean with spacious room and shower room. It was value for money though I found the wall mounted TV too small to watch and though... More

This is a basic hotel with good location. Rooms simple but clean - room service every day. Breakfast pretty good - cheese, eggs, fresh fruit etc. Would recommend and stay there again. With this low price don't expect a standard of 5* hotel :)

Six of us stayed here from the 3rd of May to the 6th of May in three separate rooms. All three rooms had a sea view which was a big bonus to us all. Two of the rooms had large toilet/shower rooms and the third room had a smaller shower room. The decor was a little tired in the rooms... More

This is not the Hilton by any means but it's in a good location and is great value for money. It's basic but clean. Wi-fi is not fast but adequate. Staff are helpful when asked. More of a hostel type setup. Breakfast ok. For the price would recommend.

I stayed for a week in this "3" star hotel, although I think the description in their sign suits it better: one big star and two little ones, which I guess is equivalent to two. The room was alright for the price, however the beds were quite uncomfortable, and it was LOUD. Every single night. The best thing about this... More

You usually know what to expect with a budget hotel, no frills for a great price and everyone is happy. The Astra takes the budget hotel and drags it down to another level. The whole experience was depressing (in such a great part of Malta). The ancient practice of handing in your room key at reception was our undoing! Our... More

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
