Terrible customer service, extremely unhelpful staff at reception, no lock in bedroom. Hotel reused to change rooms. No A/C during heatwave. We decided to check out after one night (booked for 4 nights) and lost all the money.

The room was small but clean, towels changed nearly every day, aircone and fan worked fine. There was only like 6 TV channels and only one English. Very small bathroom. It took ages to fill the bath with water cos the pressure was so low. Food was good. Always something to choose from. The only let down was lack of... More

this hotel leaves a lot to be desired. We arrived late in the evening, expecting two rooms a double and a twin, next to each other as we were traveling with children. We were taken to our rooms which were not together but on different corridors, it was roasting hot and the air con wasn't working in the double room.... More

The stairway was blocked off, the air con faulty and ceiling stained, the pillows were... very flat. It might be okay in some rooms but ours needed more attention. But hey, it was okay because hotels are only for sleeping I guess. The reception is the most up kept part because it is your first take of the place. If... More

Stay well clear of this place. I and my family have just returned from a 10 day stay at this hotel and each of us counted the days until we could leave. Every aspect of this hotel is shamefully disgraceful - especially for the price. The rooms are not great. The airconditioning is rationed - when it works - something... More

Four of us shared a room in this hotel, and I thought it would be more stressful than it actually was. The room was small and the beds were quite uncomfortable (not brilliant on my bad back), plus the fan and air con - needed due to the 30 degree heat on a night - were extremely loud. The room...

I was disappointed as the room was not up to standard. Noise air conditioning and the bathroom was inadequate with a poor shower sometimes with no hot water for a shower and it takes ages to fill a bath as the water comes out very slowly and the bath was stained, the toilet did not flush properly.

just got back from Malta and stayed at the Canifor hotel in Qawra, average hotel, basic meals and pleasant staff, wifi is chargeable but doesn't last as long as it should, salty water in the pool and scum line on tiles, it's in desperate need of a revamp as it looks outdated, the pigeons kept pooing on my balcony, air...
