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

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.
