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...

This hotel is currently being refurbished (10/04/15) which means that the restaurant and bar are closed and there is a fair amount of building work going on in the hotel. Although offered a reduction (as no breakfast), I found it necessary to cut my stay short, due to unacceptable building noise and dust. I was also concerned about poor signage... More

The hotel is at the moment being refurbished and yes there is no restaurant and bar, we told you specifically on arrival. We refunded you not just the breakfast but also a reduction on the room rate . The main reason of your complaint was because a a worker had drilled a hole in the corridor to instal a cable... More

I chose this Hotel for its reasonable price, and its convenient location. It's inside the walled city so great for seeing the old cobble streets and some museums. There are great views of the sea BUT there is no beach. If you want to go to the beach you need to take a bus from just outside the city, so... More

I have stayed at the British Hotel over the last 8 years for at least one week. The view over the Grand Harbour from some of the rooms and the restaurant balcony are stunning - worth the stay alone! Rooms are clean, have newly refurbished bathrooms and are very comfortable. The staff are superb and nothing is too much trouble,... More

Great hotel in the heart of Valletta. This place is NOT for those who travel to Malta for the beaches and party life. Rather this place gives you advantage to the life of old Valletta with great views and quick walk to the bus stops to the rest of the island! Luckily was upgraded to a balcony on the top... More

I was worried booking the British Hotel as it has mixed reviews. The rooms need updating and a few simple repairs, but the triple room that I booked for my family was clean. This hotel wins by virtue of its location. Our triple room was located near the top of the hotel and had fantastic views across the sea and... More

We stayed just one night as we had a late flight arrival and needed a room before heading to Gozo the next day. British Hotel, while not the cheapest available, offered a good location at an ok price. Our room was huge with a small balcony overlooking the harbour - fantastic views and a real treat. Luckily this provided a... More

Although the decor is a little dated and in need of a makeover the staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The harbour views are fantastic from the front rooms and the restaurant and the hotel has a fantastic location for exploring Valetta. Breakfast is very good, dinner was ok

Okay but not tops. Pros - location, views. Cons - rather tired. If you get a harbour facing room esp. 105 or 106 all is forgiven as these have a massive private balcony overlooking the Grand Harbour. Hotel is well situated for all the historical sites of Valletta. Staff were helpful and freindly. Only spent 1 night here. I am... More

We stayed there just for one night. Air conditioner was broken. There was no choice for breakfast. Bread was dry and green,old ham and bubbly fruit salad. Food was kept just on the table and covered with cling film. You can imagine how "tasty" it was at July at this temperature!
