There is nothing wrong with the Astra Hotel if you are looking for a holiday where your hotel is simply a place to lay your head every night. The room was clean, the breakfast was decent, but since we left after breakfast and only returned to go to bed it fulfilled all our requirements.

Located just a few yards from the seafront, some rooms have a direct sea view, others a side view. Refurbished a few years ago, but rooms retain an old world charm with high ceilings - my room was 21x15x15 feet. My room had a shower which worked well as did everything else. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided but... More

I didn't expect much from this hotel, because I didn't pay much.... All in all the location is good, but the air conditioner didn't work and I woke up in the morning with about 15 bug bites on my legs. I don't know if they were mosquitoes or bed bugs, but they itch like crazy. Not much more to say.

When we arrived, we were told that we had been upgraded to the Preluna & Spa around the corner, but their room turned out to be a windowless family annex, which we refused to take up. A call to Booking.com and we got our money back and stayed at the Park Hotel just across the street, which was OK for... More

Dear Esteemed Guest Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. At times we do come in situations where the hotel is slightly overbooked, could be an urgent maintenance issue which cannot wait, so in that case, we randomly select a room to move to our sister hotel; The Preluna.

This Hotel is excellently located to the main attractions of Malta , sea front,good service and friendly receptionists, good breakfast, the room and the toilet are wide enough. I would probably stay again in this Hotel for another vacation in Malta.

Just returned from Malta- stayed from end of July until beginning of August. On arrival we were charged for previous night for a cancelled flight- not a great start. Got a bit more interesting when we were put into a room with a shower that did not turn on and learned that sea views came with a premium charge, so... More

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 :)
