This was our first time staying at this hotel and to be honest, was not expecting too much as we know Sliema hotels very well. I can honestly say that we had a lovely stay and would go back again. Yes, the decor is a little tired, but you must see beyond that. Take a front sea view room if... More

The hotel is right opposite the beach and has lovely views of the bay. We were on the 3rd floor and had a small but nice balcony. The room was spacious and nicely furnished . The cleaners were there every dsy and fresh towels and sheets were provided. The staff were friendly and couldnt do enough to help. The pool... More

Returned from Malta after a 10 night stay at the Carlton hotel. They say this is a 3 star hotel? We have stayed in better B & Bs. They don't have a bar or lounge for guests.The rooms are very small with only a wardrobe and dressing table.Breakfast is continental and not much choice, it's the same every morning.The staff...

This was a last minute trip and I wanted a simple hotel as a base and didn't require a restaurant as we prefer to eat out. Our room was quite plainly furnished but immaculate and was cleaned perfectly every day. All the guys on Reception, day and night, were charming and helpful. The pool on the roof is tiny but... More

Really a 2-star hotel in a great location that offers the bare minimum. Room walls in dire need of a repaint. No electrical sockets near the bedside which is my pet hate in this day and age (no way to use the mobile sitting or lying in bed while it charges at the end of the day). Only one bedside... More

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
