I first stayed at the Plevna nearly 40 years ago and was interested in returning as we needed somewhere to stay for 4 nights. It's very central for shops, bars, restaurants the ferries and the promenade. The breakfast is very good for a 3* hotel. The staff are polite, friendly and professional. Rooms are average size with good facilities and a small balcony. There were large groups of Italian teenagers also staying there and noisy corridors were a problem one late evening. We brought this to the attention of the Reception. The following morning at breakfast we met a hotel Director. She assured us that the problem would not happen again and she was right. It didn't as any slight noise murmurs were swiftly eliminated by a security man. This showed that the Plevna will do anything to ensure that guests enjoy their stay and will consider
returning another time. No hotel parking but streets surrounding do have the odd space. Failing that a public underground car park is two minutes walk away and costs 1.50 Euros per hour or 6 Euros for 24 hours. I look forward to returning again to the Plevna.

We stayed at the Plevna Hotel at the end of January 2014. It was quite central to Sliema and could get to either the harbour or the promenade within 5/10 minutes, all depends on how fast you can walk. The room was clean and room service came in everyday to make sure everything was in order. Food was only average and I think that if you spent more than one week there, you would have the same menu every week. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: You need to upgrade from their standard room as they are quite small.

The Plevna hotel is very good value for price. Rooms were clean, room service checks them every day. Staff is very friendly and ready to help you with any request. We really enjoyed our holiday. Bar could be open longer hours, so all inclusive guest can enjoy their time more, but all the rest was great.

Room Tip: Lower floors are more quiet. View probably nicer upstairs, but if you don't want room next door...

My husband and I stayed at the Plevna in march 2013.We booked two weeks all inclusive and what a con that was. The bar was closed in the afternoons so we were unable to utilise the all inclusive deal. There was a small room where there was a drinks machine and a plate of cake but as this was available to everyone what were we getting for the extra money we had paid. At breakfast time we were asked to order our lunch but as we didn't want to have to come back to the hotel if we were doing something we missed out on that part of the deal as well. The other thing that spoilt our holiday was the fact that the hotel was full of students. At one time there were over 100 of them and they were so noisy you couldn't hear yourself think. Darren the manger was very nice but when we complained about the noise nothing was done. I had to get up after midnight one night because the students were running and yelling along the corridor. all in all we didn't enjoy our holiday at all. We are going back this year as we like Malta but we certainly would never go back to the Plevna.

Room Tip: my tip is don't go to this hotel

Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear that you liked Malta but we are sorry that the hotel did not meet your expectations during your stay in March 2013. Our All Inclusive package includes limited bar hours and drinks are available during lunch time and all evening during the winter season. In Summer drinks are available all day at the Beach Club and all evening in the hotel bar. Guests are asked whether they will be having lunch at the hotel or whether they prefer a packed lunch to take with them. so that they never have to miss a meal. All our guests have tea / coffee making facilities in their room and supplies are replenished daily. This information about our All Inclusive package is available to guests when they are booking. Our hotel accommodates various guests of different age groups and nationalities and we do our best to ensure that guests are not disturbed by other guests.

For the price I got, this hotel far exceeded my expectations. Great location, friendly staff and good connections. Whenever reported of minor faults, they were tended quickly. Highly recommend this hotel.

Got back 3 days ago from a week at the Plevna. I chose this hotel after reading hundreds of reviews for Hotels in different parts of Malta, seeing as we were in malta the same time last year and had a dreadful experience at a different Hotel.
I have to say.... We loved it here. Sure the outside could do with a lick of paint, but that just adds to the charm, and Malta still has that old look of the war torn 40's in many respects, that's why we love it there, unspoilt.
We had room 406, which is larger than most, and was kept immaculate by housekeeping. The staff really are friendly, and this comes out in most of the reviews you read. The Manager is always around, especially at meal times, it's important to him and his team that you are happy, this definitely shows in their attitude towards things.
Being an ex chef, I love food, and the food gets a big thumbs up from me, it was delicious. Even though the names of dishes may sound familiar, they come out completely different, definitely a Maltese version of it, and I loved that.
The Hotel is in a side street, but literally 2 minutes walk to the busy sea front and it's masses of shops and restaurants, it really is in a great location.
Be warned though, that in low season the restaurant closes at 8pm, and 8.30pm in peak season, this may seem very early to us, but works fine in reality unless you are half, full board or all inclusive and arrive after 8pm like we did. I think in this instance guests should at least be offered a sandwich, we have paid for it, afterall. But I still give this Hotel full marks, simply because they try so hard to make your stay a pleasant one, and that is what is great about the Plevna.
Book it, you won't be dissapointed.
