This hotel has mixed reviews and I do understand them - but it depends what you're after. If you're the type of person who spends most of their time at the hotel around the pool - this isn't the hotel for you. If, like us, you simply use it as a base, to sleep, in order to go out and... More

I stayed here for 4 nights for a friends wedding and was thankful I couldnt book up at the same time as my friends who were staying in the Roma hotel. Set approximately 5-10 minutes walk from the promenade uphill and away from the hustle and bustle it took me a while to get my bearings but was also a... More

I have just returned from my holidays from Malta, stayed at this horrible hotel, We stayed at ground floor with lots of EF students together and I did not understand if this was a 3 star hotel or a youth hostel! If I wanted to go to a youth hostel, I could simply have booked from there at a much... More

We have just returned from a delightful family holiday in Malta, made perfect by staying in the Imperial hotel. I can hugely recommend this hotel. The building itself is beautiful and gracious. The staff couldn't be nicer - warm, welcoming and so helpful. We have stayed in the Imperial five times now. I highly recommend it. As a family we... More

Stayed in this hotel back in May and was almost speechless when checking into my room. It has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, how they have achieved 3 stars is beyond me o_0 ... perhaps they won this accolade in a lottery or something. The hotel is at the top of a hill, not easily... More

We spent an enjoyable week at The Imperial , the reception staff were very helpful (especially with directions). The rooms were clean but a bit basic. The pool area was nice and quiet & we'll set out. The pool bar was ok when you could get someone to serve you. Don't bother with breakfast poor quality and overpriced ! You... More

Our first impressions of the staff that greeted us was very good as they were all very helpful and pleasant, Our first impression of our room was however not so good. The toilet was covered in various unpleasant stains and we had... More

This is my second time staying at the Imperial and chose to return after thoroughly enjoying an 18 night visit last year , I wasn't disappointed again this year and noticed many improvements in all areas . For me the charm , the other quests and the very helpful staff more than make up for anything a modern sterile hotel... More
