If you are going to stay at the Canifor, PLEASE take notice of the Traveller photos - We should have, It is NOT 4 STAR more like 2 star. We booked in during the night and the treatment we received from the reception staff was awful, we were not helped, in fact we were not even told how to lock... More

Our experience was not good from day 1. Our first room toilet was blocked. We were moved overnight to a student's room with 4 beds and no space. Our 3rd room was fine. The hotel is half full of students and adolescents a lot of them are inadequately supervised. At night there was shouting from balcony to balcony. Shouting in... More

We cannot fathom out why someone would rate this hotel as 2 stars ('poor') and be happy to return??? We paid for a 4 star hotel as advertised - including food, location and service. We did not expect 5 star or 'The Ritz'. You can stay in other 4 star hotels in the same vicinity for relatively the same price... More

hey this review is not as extreme as the previous lady from Wirral (who we me at the hotel), firstly it is not a 4 star hotel, it's 2 at best, if this place advertised itself as a 2 star it would not get as many complaints, the local area is a bit run down, but we liked it, it's... More

Having just returned from this hotel with my husband & another couple,we found the staff very helpful,rooms were clean,bedding changed every 3 days.Breakfast could do with a little improvement,but evening meals were very good,plenty of choice.Overall a very good hotel for the money.In a central location which had everything you needed. We stayed for 21 nights.Would go there again.

We are writing this in an internet café whilst still here - escaping this terrible place at every opportunity. This is NOT and I repeat NOT a 4 star hotel by any stretch of the imagination. It's a YOUTH HOSTEL. Worst hotel ever. The hotel accepts trips from HUNDREDS of marauding, noisy school children, who have no respect for other... More

staff disinterested. food mediocre at best. how it can be classed as 4 star is unbelieveable. furnishings old and shabby as were bedding and towels. worst hotel we have ever stayed at. puts you off visiting malta again. Local restaurants very good but shouldn't have to use them every night when already paid.

Stayed here with a group of friends: fault in every appartment. Cockroach infestations, ants nests, no hot water. Only problem they bothered to sort was the lack of hot water which took 3 days. One nice receptionist, all others looked irritated to be approached. Waiters invariably rude.Food was the worst I have ever had; yes there is a range but... More

Just returned from staying a week at the canifor hotel. On arrival check in was very good. the reception staff were friendly and explained to us what we needed to know. We have stayed at this hotel before but years ago now. The room was lovely and big. 3 beds in the room with loads of space to move around.... More
