Although we were welcomed and had good views over the harbour, we were let down by not having a kettle/tea & coffee in our room. Also the tv didn't work and i was spoken to rudely by reception when i asked about it.

Our original booking included room and breakfast, but before we arrived we were informed that the hotel was undergoing renovations and they couldn't accommodate us for breakfast. Instead they provided free of charge a sweet bun and instant tea or coffee. When at 10:30 pm we arrived it was raining, only one quarter of our group were able to shelter... More

This is a great hotel, classic and comfortable, and just a few minutes walk from everywhere in the centre, Our room had fantastic views out over the Grand Harbour. The hotel is a bit quierky (in a very pleasant way) in its layout and style My wife and I stayed for a few days in August 2014 when the hotel... More

Stayed at this hotel a few times, and when in Valletta few surpass it, its location is amazing, its views are the best on the islands, and rooms are very clean and comfortable. Owners namely David go out of their way to make sure that all guests necessities are adhered to. You will go nowhere else in Malta and wake... More

Our room was sparse and the beds were hard. The toilet in our room flushed well once when we arrived, but the tank took several hours to fill, so we were only able to truly flush it once in the morning and once at night. The same was true of the toilet down the hall. We had paid the bed... More

The harbour views are amazing- make sure you book a room with a view. We stayed in 109. 4 single beds nd shower room. Location is not good for anyone with mobility issues because of Maltese stairways as streets . Booking direct with hotel gave good price. At moment they're charging in groom only as no kitchens operating. Disruption because... More

Staff are super friendly and understanding given the renovations have apparently been going on for years. Still plenty to be done. Currently the place is like a rabbit warren with all access via the back doors. Higgeldy piggledy but clean and comfortable and very well located. Breakfast isn't available while the renovations are happening but you can get a cup... More

I would like to point out that renovations have been going on for months and not years as stated. We informed everyone about the breakfast situation and in fact rooms were sold on accommodation only. Like you said we offered free tea/coffee and a croissant to very guest .thanks for your comments More

We arrived to find the hotel was in a TOTAL state of refurbishment. Hotel staffed informed us the work had been advertised on their website yet we booked through a Internet operator and still to today there is no mention of the work being undertaken on that Web site hence we felt aggrieved.
