It was a decent hotel for a decent price with a nice view of the harbour, even if it was mostly obscured by construction work we were unaware would be going on. It was a little noisy at times, being located right outside the foyer with the free wifi meant often large groups of people sat outside chatting. The air... More

This was my 11th time staying at the British Hotel and I have always enjoyed the hotel. The manager emailed me about 6 weeks in advance and explained about renovation works that had overrun and that no restaurant facilities were available. It does not matter as within a 5 minute walk there are plenty of cafe's open from 7-30am onwards... More

I've just spent ten days at the British Hotel, my third visit over the last 4 years, and, once again, very much enjoyed being there. The Manager kindly emailed a month in advance to advise that there were major building works ongoing, thus it was not possible to offer restaurant and bar facilities and that the hotel was operating on...

We booked this hotel long before it was noted that it was going to be under construction. At no point were we informed by hotel management that pretty much the entire place would be inaccessible and under construction through our entire stay. We ended up on the next to top floor (the numbering system is bizarre- every room is a... More

Do not stay here if you want to have a pleasant visit to Valletta. Much of the information listed on sites like Booking.com is now false. Due to ongoing renovations there is no restaurant, no usable public terrace, no breakfast or other meal options, etc. Also all rooms do not have a view or even possibility for AC - many... More

ZUZUMalta, Owner at British Hotel, responded to this review

I just want to correct and clear some of the comments. The information on major sites like booking.com , Expedia and also on our own website states clearly that we are undergoing a major refurbishment in the restaurant , bar and reception. We have a roof terrace which is available on the 6th floor with seating for the guests. .... More

We arrived at midnight, having travelled over as foot passengers on the ferry from Sicily. Just let them know in advance, as we did, if you will be arriving late - no problem. When we opened the curtains in the morning we found we had a terrace/balcony with wonderful views over the harbour. Our room was large, clean with a... More

My stay at the British Hotel in Mai was wonderful again - although some restaurations at the great building of 19th century are going on behind closed doors! The BH-Staff welcomes you whether you come from Japan, from Norway or the Fidji Islands. You are warmhearted welcome by the english and french-speaking crew like the maltese tradition goes on for...

Staying here was a real treat, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the Hotel has everything you could wish for. I will definitely be returning. The location is tremendous and the views from the sixth floor terrace are fantastic.

Arriving at night in a strange city it was disconcerting to find the hotel door boarded up and a skip full of builders rubble outside. A note on the door indicated a temporary entrance next street over. Room was a good size and recently renovated but obviously on a budget, room was plain and almost cell like. No tea/coffee maker...
