We were in this hotel for summer vacation. First night there, we got a room with no sea view and moisture was all over the walls. We have talked to the staff about this, and they cahnged our room, with sea view, clean and cozy. Everything elese about hotel was good, food, pool, cleanness, kindness... P.s. next day they have...

Situated right on the front in Sliema, Malta, the Cartlon is a 3 star locally rated hotel. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. Our room was on the 7th floor with great views over St Julian's bay, however, with only one small lift it can be a bit of a chore getting cases and people in the lift. The... More

This is a great location for exploring Malta , you are close to some great bars and restaurants and the public transport to the main tourist areas. Rooms are basic but clean. We didn't eat in the hotel as there were so many great places in the area. Rooms were very cheap and well worth it, as all we wanted... More

Just back from a 4 night stay, mid July. Small, basic hotel but it's clean, friendly staff, excellent location. This hotel is situated in an excellent area between Sliema & St Julian's. Outside hotel are bus stops and its within ambling distance of bars, restaurants & shops. The hotel is opposite the sea, although it's not a sandy beach, it's... More

Stayed last week, absolutely fantastic hotel, we booked this hotel knowing we weren't getting luxury but it had everything we needed and a fabulous see view from the balcony! David, the receptionist was lovely and was genuinely interested in his guests. A small roof top pool with plenty of sun beds so a fantastic place to sunbathe when the tiny... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Carlton. The hotel itself is a bit dated but clean and in a great location. The bus stop is across the street and super easy to figure out. Valletta is about 10 minutes away by bus. Take the 12 or 13 bus to Valletta. It comes every 15 minutes. The room was average size... More

Location is brilliant, just a short walk from bars and restaurants. Guys on reception were personal and helpful. Don't expect a 5 star hotel, its fairly basic but location and service make it a fantastic place to stay!

After a rocky start (we booked a sea view with fridge and found ourselves in a room facing a wall in the side street) the manager and staff were great we were transferred to a front of hotel room not quite sea view (it was on 2nd floor and the trees partly blocked the view of the bay) but great...

The best thing about this hotel was the location. Knowing Malta very well, I wanted to stay in Sliema but away from the night life and there are no clubs near this hotel and there are good restaurants a few minutes walk away. Buses stop right outside the hotel going to Bugibba and to Valletta. The reception was clean, we... More
