Staying in Sliema right next to St Julians is a delight. Having a beautiful ocean view from your balcony is great too. Carlton has done pretty good with the location and the view. Where they suck is the room. I stayed in a double bedroom with ocean view, the room was super tiny, untidy and dusty. Not the dust you... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here - in fact probably 1 of the best hotels we have used in Malta. Lovely view from the balcony brilliant location and lovely friendly staff. Hope my parents also enjoy when they come there in 2 weeks

Breakfast was nothing much, but the place is unbeatable. Half of all Malta's bus routes pass under the window. Even the noise of parties during the late hours is not that bad, and you can always join in with the fun. The roof view is also perfect.

The hotel is in a very good location close to Valetta and st Julian's both within walking distance. However the build it's self is old and run down. The elevator is quiet small and only fits two people making it very claustrophobic when your staying on the 7th floor. The room was basic which was ok until I went for... More

My wife and I spent two weeks at the Carlton in July and could not speak highly enough of our stay. Malta presents an abundance of places to visit and short of staying in Valetta at a much more expensive hotel the Carlton provides a great base for all your activities. The bus stop is right outside the hotel, the... More

As my first stay in Malta the main criterion was the location, which is the access to public transportation and not needing to rent a car, as parking spaces are next to impossible to find and if you find one, very expensive… The Carlton is, like many reviews indicate, an average hotel. However, the location, in Sliema is excellent for... More

I spent my Christmas holydays in Sliema last year and I found this hotel very nice, clean and strategically positioned, with a bus stop just in the iter siderale of the road! The staff was really friendly and helpful, my room was simple but clean and I think I will choose this place again for a future visit of this... More

I stayed at this hotel between the 7th and 14th July, during this stay we noticed a number of defects with this hotel which mean that at the present time I recommend that people do not stay at this hotel for their own safety. In addition the Malta Tourism Authority is currently carrying out an investigation into this hotel, and... More

Stayed there for 3 nights, noticed the cleaner comes with only a pail of water which is used to clean the entire floor. Bathroom floor was rather sticky had to use my slippers. Bring your shower gel because they don't provide it every day. Friendly staffs and very strategic location. Breakfast is simple and tasty.

Me and my wife stopped in this hotel for our second visit to Malta. The hotel is great value for money and is a no thrills hotel but a comfortable stay in a very good location with good access to buses. The hotel is kept clean and our room was cleaned every day along with fresh bedding and towels changed... More
