First I have to say that most of the staff at this hotel is very friendly and helpful. I was aware of that this is only a 3 star hote,l but trusting Tripadvior seeing that it had got "Travellers choice 2014" and the fact that the price was 100 euros a night, we thought it would still be a good...

The hotel has a nice location in St. Julian's which is famous for its night life. Therefore I think the location is great. we were not very happy with the cleanliness of the rooms though. It could have been better. The staff was helpful for sure!

I stayed in the Rokna for a week in May. The hotel was not as modern as I had expected but as i was really only using it as somewhere to sleep as out diving every day this was not an issue. What was really good was how clean it was, the really comfortable bed, and the freindly and very... More

Please do yourself a huge favour and stay well clear. This place is not worth €100 euro a night. It is a basic 2 star in a good location with old rooms and in need a lick of paint. That I can deal with but dirty I can not! The room had insects crawling on the floor as well as... More

I personally was at reception when Mr xxx and Mr xxx checked in. The check-in time was approximately 13:35. Two triple rooms had been reserved however we allocated 2 larger quadruple rooms with balconies as we knew you had young children and would appreciate the space. I gave the keys to Mr xxx and Mr xxx for both rooms and... More

My sister, my husband and I booked an apartment with a balcony. It was on the third floor with a kitchenette. We had free wifi and a continental breakfast. The location of the hotel is perfect to visit anywhere on the island. You are already in St. Julian's: the most popular resort for its nightlife. There are lots of clubs... More

We stayed for 2 nights, mid April for €100. This included a continental breakfast (with the worlds slowest toaster!) and free wifi. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready as the previous people had only just checked out but we only had to wait 15 minutes and it was ready. We booked a double but got a double and... More

Book here - you won't be disappointed. €6.50 for a weekly bus ticket can be bought at the airport, directly opposite arrivals. Get on an X2 and stop at "St Julians" or "Ross" - the hotel is a 5 minute walk from either stop...Downhill from "St Julians" as far as you can go, then turn right. From "Ross" go down... More

I stayed 7 nights at end of March. All staff were polite and helpful. Continental breakfast was adequate including a good choice of cereals, yoghurt, breads, ham, cheese and jams, tea/coffee and fruit juice. The restaurant is very popular as well and offers very good food. The pizzas are lovely. The room was clean and maid service provided daily with... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, for a short family break. We had a standard double room and a triple room for the extended family. Nice and friendly hotel, really good value for money. Bathrooms were ok, cleaned daily and new towels given. There can a really strong smell of bleach, but once you've open the massive windows, this can... More
