This hotel is a hidden gem in Valletta, with a fabulous view over the harbour. It is not posh, but simply a nice place to stay full of genuine Maltese charm, with a touch of British eccentricity and reflects the hospitality which was first recorded by St Luke two thousand years ago. The staff were so helpful and genuinely wanted... More

Spent 6 days and found the hotel and Valletta (first visit) really great. Views from the terrace and balconies over the harbour are unbeatable and the rooms, though basic, are fine. Helpful and friendly owners/ staff and made a change to stay in a place with character. There's more in Valletta than the guide books say..lots of eating places open... More

The British Hotel is the most charming family run hotel. Do not expect room service or haute cuisine, but we were taken by the pure casual charm of the delightful family run hotel. Very greatful for a lovely balcony view, but if you don't get a bedroom view go early to breakfast to get a wonderful seat to look over... More

The rooms are basic and the decor is wearing a little thin. The location is great with stunning views across the waterfront. No wifi in the rooms is disappointing these days and I don't believe is typical of Malta hotels. I found it clean and very friendly. The food in the restraunt is just ok. I think it is a... More

thanks for your comments . I just want to make something clear as we do provide Wifi in the rooms at a small charge and its Ozone which is similar to BTwifi where one pays a small fee. WE do however offer free Wifi in public areas to our guests. We have a 3 course dinner for 15.00 euros inc... More

The best thing about the British Hotel in Valletta is its remarkable location overlooking the commercial harbor. It is also a short interesting walk from the city gates and new Parliament building. The hotel itself is a little thread warn, but for me that is part of its attractiveness. If you are looking for new and shiny with lots of... More

I'm a frequent visitor to Malta and tried for ages to book into the British Hotel. I finally made it and it was certainly worth the wait. OK, so it's not the poshest place in town, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's a clean, functional, very friendly family-run place in a great location - especially if you like steps... More

The view was worth the stay alone, the location was great, far enough off republic street to avoid the cruise ship tourists. Contenintal breakfast is just that, had better, had worse.( How often do you go to your local hotel for food at home?) If you go to a hotel just for the food and decor then this is not... More

I went to Valletta on business and was booked into the British hotel very close to Victoria Gate. The place needs some serious money spent on it, it hasn't seen a coat of paint in years. There were broken and loose floor tiles everywhere. Exposed electric and a rabbit warren of stairs. The breakfast was very bad and the continental... More

I highly recommend the British Hotel. If I ever return to Malta, this where I'll stay, hands down. I'm tempted to give it five stars, but there was one minor problem - the food kind of sucks. The breakfast is edible, but uninspired. The dinner we had was lousy. But that wasn't a problem because we're fast learners. We ate... More

The British Hotel is in a good location in Valetta, right near the harbour and Republic Street but it is at the bottom of a million stairs so, if mobility is an issue for you, it could be a problem. It's a basic hotel for sure - very few amenities (bring your own shampoo and conditioner, no minibar, etc.) Our... More
