Outside appearance is pretty dreadful, inside it is really shabby and rundown. Rooms are clean but could not recommend staying here. The room was very cold, had the heating on full but still went to bed in clothes! Staff very nice but hotel needs a total refurbishment. Sorry to be so negative but must be truthful to help others get... More

We booked this hotel for a very last minute short break , directly with the hotel. From my first email, the level of service we received from the manager was way above average and this was carried through to his staff. By UK standards this is not a 4 star hotel, but it is well run, very comfortable and excellent... More

At less than £120 for five nights (including safe and wifi) for two people in a double room with sea view, this hotel was excellent value for a short holiday in March. Probably would not be the area I would choose should I return to Malta, but only because it was a little quiet at that time of year. But... More

We had never been to Malta before and were curious about hotel properties. Fortunately we made a great choice in choosing the Pallazzin. We were encouraged when corresponding with the manager, Simon Borda, before our arrival. He was most helpful. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the accommodations given the reasonable price. The room was a good size... More

Relatively cheap price for clean room. Hotel located not so far away from the bus stop, but a bit difficult to find for foot tourists. Breakfast buffet well replenished. We even had european power adapter in the room, so it was possible to charge a mobile having a continental plug without any problem. Breakfast served between 7.30-9.30 - should be... More

Very nice stay in this hotel, weather was lovely for November which made it a great holiday. Bit of building work going on around the vicinity, but it's good to see development still taking place. Rooms are basic, but good, had a sea view with a balcony which was lovely. Staff nice & spoke good English. Sauna and a small... More

As a group of students we were looking for somewhere affordable to host a weekend break for our colleagues. Most other places we were looking at, were beyond the budget of an average student, thus we decided to go for the less costly options available, an ended up choosing Il-Palazzin as our destination. First off. The outside doesn't look too... More
