My daughter and I have just returned from a four night stay at this grand hotel. The Hotel is in an excellent position for exploring Valletta and the Island. From the moment we arrived we found all the staff friendly and extremely helpful.
We had booked a Harbour View room. We were disappointed with our first room as the view was over the large Valletta car park with harbour views in the far distance. Before unpacking I returned to reception and was promised a move to another room the next day. The second room (415) was fairly small but well furnished with a good bathroom. I think most of the rooms are the same size. This second room had a lovely view out of the rear of the hotel over Marsamxett Harbour. There was no balcony - rooms on the first and second floors have small balconies. We didn't feel the rooms were large enough to sit and relax in. They were great for sleeping - comfortable beds and very quiet.
There's a lovely lounge - didn't like the piano entertainment on one evening - and a club bar which is very colonial in style.
We only ate breakfast in the hotel. There was a good choice of hot and cold foods.
Neville on reception and Saviour, the Concierge, gave us some excellent recommendations for dinner - Ambrosia, Malata, Palazzo Preca and Gianni. I will review them separately.
The hotel has a nice garden and good pool with lovely views.
Overall it was a great stay and we would recommend the hotel
