I loved this hotel. One of the nicest hotel experiences I've ever had, certainly in the top 3. Comfortable room and scrupulously maintained, exceedingly helpful staff, nice restaurants, excellent breakfast buffet, a 7x24 bar in the lobby with a great harbor view, free wireless, and an easy walk into town for dinner or to see the sights. It's a bit out of the way in Valletta and not mentioned in any of the guidebooks I looked at, tucked away down the hill behind the Phoenician and located between two of the old bastions on the water's edge. Very diverse clientele ranging from older British folks on vacation to African politicians. I got a killer price through a Jetsetter sale - around $300 for 4 nights. Cabled Internet did not work in the room but the wireless was ok.
