We stayed September 2014 and wasn't expecting anything luxurious. Our apartment was so much more spacious than what we were expecting, with a balcony. We chose inland view, which was probably the best option, as there isn't a sea view from the hotel (not that we could see.) We went Bed and Breakfast, although food wasn't great it was nice... More

It was so cold and the sheets felt damp. There was a small electric radiator which wasn't much good and when the plug was removed the plug top came off, (not safe). In spite of putting spare blankets on the bed they were removed daily by the maids. I must say though, the room was serviced each day. The T.V's... More

Stayed here for a week in January, this review is only for the apartment we stayed in. The cardor apartments are part of the canifor hotel. The first apartment had no balcony at all, I complained but we had to spend 2 nights there until an apartment with a balcony that we had paid for became available. When trying to... More

Cheap and cheerful, Outdated and dirty, But the perfect place to rest your head after a day of sightseeing! It's the kind of hotel that you have to wear your shoes in your room so your feet don't get dirty, so I'd say perfect for people that are going out to have a good time. I wouldn't recommend it to...

It's a good place for people who don't wanna spend too much money for accommodation. The Cardor hotel was the cheapest option which I found on Malta. I had an apartment on the 3rd floor with a small balcony. My first impression when I entered the room? I was a bit disappointed, because the room was very dark, had old... More

We visit Malta at least once per year and always stay here, it is not fancy in fact it is very basic but cost is good. Staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome, it is clean and tidy and room is cleaned daily. Do not expect luxuries as it is a basic place and well worth the cost,... More

we were very fortunate to be able to visit Malta twice this year and on 6 October returned to the Cardor, it was like welcome home. We know its not 5 star accomodation but you get what you need. Cleanliness, linen regularly changed and all staff very helpful and friendly. Apartment had exactly what it said it would, a cooker... More
