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

This was our first time to Malta and we decided to stay at the Imperial for 7 nights. 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

The lobby and the pool area are lovely, the rooms comfortable, with coffee making facilities which are replenished daily, and the staff are friendly and helpful. But the level of cleanliness wasn't high enough for me and I'm not THAT fussy, I just don't expect to have to go round the bathroom with toilet tissue to get rid of the... More

Probably the worst hotel I have stayed in for at least 25 years. The room was dark, dirty, and tired. Aircon blew out warm air. The TV - though quite new, boasted a 2 pin plug for a 3-pin socket. The member of staff who came to fix it tried jamming the top of a biro in the socket to... More

I could not fault much on my two-night solo stay at this venerable historic hotel. The service, room, atmosphere, and location are very satisfactory for the money. This is a taste of what colonial Malta (of which there is not much evidence left, except for the architecture) must have been like. The breakfasts and dinners are buffet-style and more than... More

It is a 3* hotel and it gives a 4* service in most areas. It is impecably... More

We chose the Imperial for its good location and traditional style and thought it would give us a good Maltese experience. Well I have to say we were extremely disappointed, the first room was dark and dirty, the wardrobe smelt damp, the second room was a little better but the bathroom was dirty and airless. The bed bases were grubby... More

This well located hotel is in the centre of the Sliema peninsular and the area is convenient to access the surrounding sea front promenades and the many restaurants etc. The Imperial is traditional and full of charm and character. Sadly some of the character is fading a little and some refurbishment is required especially in the bedrooms. We did not... More
