For my first trip to Malta, I chose Waterfront Hotel for lodging. Good location, close to stores, ferry and bus stop for differents points of the island. Wi-fi in the room was not satisfactory sometimes, beeing necessary stay in the lobby for better internet connection. Shampoo and conditioning are not avaiable for personal use of the guests. Helpful and friendly... More

We stayed here for 1 week in august, the hotel was very clean and the rooms were very nice. We had a side view over the harbour which was stunning. We stayed on a b and b basis, the breakfasts were good with plenty of choice. The only downside of the stay was not having access to a shower on... More

Besides having a beautiful seaside central location along the Strand, Gzira, Malta, (I could see the harbor, not only from my balcony, but from inside my room). Very close to pubs, restaurants, snack bars, shops, and supermarkets, I consider the Waterfront Hotel as a good 4* hotel. I, also, rated "very good" for the welcoming spirit of the Front Desk...

Pro,s: Very clean and nicely laid out. Nice food service. Pleasant staff. Cons. The brochure showed a double bed and they are all two singles, so you have to push together. Old fashioned plastic shower in the bathrooms. No room clock. Old fashioned TV with one channel if your english. Sporadic WiFi unless you sit in the foyer. Be very... More

I wanted to book a memorable holiday for my children (who are 12 and 14) as it was their first time abroad, and Malta and The Waterfront have not disappointed. The hotel was welcoming, friendly (Thank you Sandro and Lawrence for the perfect cocktails), comfortable and very well placed for everything in Malta. We had a Seaview room (212) which... More

My wife and I spent a 4 day break in the Waterfront hotel in July 14. This was our first time in Malta and the Waterfront was an ideal base for the holiday. Our room was on the 2nd floor looking out to the harbour and, as such, we had a great view and were able to enjoy the fireworks... More

I have just spent a week at the hotel in a room with partial sea view. I was impressed with the room which was larger than the average hotel room and also with the view.
