I wouldn't really class this place as a good hotel. There were no fridges in the room (we paid €3 per day to keep food), the whole place looked unfinished from the paintwork to tiling and hallway flooring, the elevator was tiny and the staff were not helpful. Overall, it's in a spectacular location, has good hot water, working air-con,... More

We booked a sea view room with a balcony, double bed and what we got was the total opposite. A dark dingy room with no balcony but a window with bars on next to a sidewalk which looked like a jail there was pipes hanging off the wall. We had no balcony to dry our towels, no fridge to keep... More

We were greeted at reception and given a complimentary drink on arrival. The hotel was spotless and the room was fantastic with stunning views over the bay. Small swimming pool but incredibly peaceful, not crowed and perfect for a quick dip to cool off. Receptionist incredibly helpful when we enquiries about any advice. The Zest restaurant is a must to... More

This hotel has a great location in St Julian's, walking distance to both Sliema and the main area of Spinola Bay. The staff were very helpful and all spoke English well, and helped out with ideas on places to eat and things to do. The rooms were fairly spacious, although no fridge is a pain. The beds were pretty poor,... More

The hotel is OK if all you need is a place to sleep. It’s in a good safe location with bus stops just outside and a Carrefour (supermarket) only a 5 minute walk away. The aircon is very good and there is always plenty of hot water. Basically it is like the shabbiest travel lodge you’ve ever seen and as... More

It was serviceable. Clean but dingy around the edges. The a/c worked. It was clean but the linens were frayed. It was fine if you were looking for a place to sleep at night and not much more out of a hotel.

Lovely hotel. Excellent breakfast and very comfortable rooms. Staff very attentive. Swimming pool on the roof with great views. Lots of nice bars etc with a cool marina. Busses cheap to travel on and you can visit the island in no time

The hotel, especially the restaurant, is in poor condition. The breakfast price is too high, since coffee is horrible and if you are thirsty water is yellow and the place is dark and the air conditioning doesn´t . Not recommended at all.

Stay well clear of this one. I understand the term you get what you pay for but this shouldn't even be rated 3 star but more like a hostel. Our toilet was broken on arrival. Sink cracked. Safe not working and so asked to change room as you would. Instead courteous staff manager said outright no you are wrong..but then... More
