We cannot understand the glowing reviews . The exterior is beautiful but the lobby is small and shabby . When we arrived late a resentful uncommunicative front desk man treated us as an intrusion . The rooms were poor . Our travel mate's smelled so bad they had to ask to be moved . The bed was lumpy . The... More

This hotel is classified as 2 stars but many 4 stars hotels don't have the same comfort. We just stayed here for 4 nights with 10 people and had the most enjoyable experience. Why is this hotel only 2 stars: because they don' have some ammenities like room service or minibar or business center but if you don't need those... More

This is a lovely family owned hotel very well located in the heart of the old city. We opted for a harbour view room for a few euros more and were not disappointed. We had room 301 which provided a spectacular corner view of the harbour and fortifications beyond. The hotel has been completly refurbished recently and we found our... More

The hotel is very pleasant from the 24 hours manned reception desk, small ground floor bar to the newly decorated breakfast room. A small lift takes you to all the floors. There is a short flight of stairs up to the roof top terrace where you can enjoy the magnificent views over Valletta Grand Harbour. The room we stayed in... More

A great hotel, brilliant location made seeing all of the sites and sounds of Valetta so much easier. Lovely staff. Lovely stay. Top tip: if intending to eat out in one of Valetta lovely restaurant's on a Friday or Saturday evening book ahead.

You could not ask for a better location in Valletta. The room was small but comfortable. Our room was on the fifth floor with a view of the harbour, which is a must!The views of the Grand Harbour are breathtaking. The staff are welcoming and friendly, making the stay a pleasure.

Just returned from a couple of days break in Valletta with a friend. Chose this hotel based on favourable reviews & also location. The hotel far exceeded our expectations & the price was more than reasonable. The location right on the harbour was perfect for us & was within easy walking distance of all main tourist & shopping areas although... More

We just wish we'd booked it for longer. Arriving off a long flight from Oz, we were welcomed with great courtesy by Mario, who smiled and said he had a surprise for us, which turned out to be a suite on the second floor with a wrap-around 16-windowed sunroom overlooking the Grand Harbour, where cruise ships float by and all...

Grand Harbour is a fantastic hotel in the heart of Valletta- minutes away from the main sites. We had a room (601) which had a great view over the harbour, looking out on to the three cities. The room was light, modern, comfortable and quiet and we were near the roof terrace. Really good value and very popular. You need... More
