“Clean and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

The hotel is extremely clean, nice and has a great location very near to the bus station (around 100 meters) and to beautiful coast. Near there you will find out restaurants and supermarkets.
Breakfast was really good too with espresso machine that makes real italian coffee.
The pool is small and not so warm but the view from the roof is fantastic - Spinola bay with its whole beauty. We really enjoyed the little time we spent there as we were traveling almost all of the time around the island.
Some extra info:
If you are going to spend all your time on the beach Malta it not the right place as sand beaches are not so many. Most of the time people just lay on the cliffs.
From the airport take bus X2 and get off at bus station called St. Julian's Ross.
When you use Malta's buses keep on your mind that you have to ring to make the driver stop. When you are at the bus stop - wave to the driver otherwise he will not stop. Get on from the first door and show your ticket to the driver or buy one from it. We bought 7 days ticket from the airport that cost 12 euro.

We chose this hotel after reading the many reviews on here. I was not disappointed. The hotel was lovely and clean, with a fridge in the room and tea/coffee (replenished every day). I don't plan to repeat all of the usual info on here, just give a few "pointers"...
1. The electricity sockets in Malta are the 3 pin UK type. Good news for the British, mainland Europeans may want to buy an adapter. They are available in lots of the shops
2. The hotel is in a quiet side street, minutes away from the "action" but not too close that you're kept awake all night. Saying that, I'm a heavy sleeper.
3. I wouldn't stay here with children. It's not a family type hotel. The pool does not have a shallow end and there are too many steps everywhere
4. I would not stay here if you have mobility issues. There are about 10 steps to get to reception, and there are about 10 steps to get to the pool from the sundeck.
5. I didn't have issues with the shower (room 108)
6. I found the staff helpful and had no issues with rudeness.
7. The hotel seemed to get busier on weekends. This was the only time we had a problem getting sunbeds.
8. The waiter occasionally comes around offering to take drink orders. There is no set frequency and the prices are not excessive (I think €1.75 for a coke)
9. Quite often we took our own water to the pool, bought from the corner shop, and took that to the pool. We also occasionally took sandwiches. This was not a problem at the time of writing, but the hotel may have a problem with it in the future.
All in all, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay here if the price was right. Please inbox me if you have any questions

I stayed at the Argento for a week in April as a base for discovering Malta's rich cultural heritage. It was a good hotel with attentive staff and came with a rich buffet breakfast. I had a room pretty high up facing the bay which was very nice. I asked about the rooms with balconies (as my had none) and was shown a large room on the top floor facing the street/city, but chose to remain in the room I had been given. When I spoke to friends staying there I think that was wise, as they experienced that side of the building as rather noisy at the weekends due to the presence of a pub opposite. The roof terrace with the pool was excellent as it at that time was too cold to swim in the sea. All in all a good hotel in a good location, but next time in Malta I would prefer staying in Valletta or in Gozo which I liked the most.

I was a bit dissapointed when I visited this hotel because I paid more money than I would and in the end I got less than I expected. I visited many 3 star hotels in Europe and they looked exactly the same as this 4 star hotel. It is in an ugly neighbourhood. There is no access for a wheelchair. The staff is not very friendly and their english are not very good. When taking shower a large pool of water was left around the toilet. The view from the windows is bad. Not too much channels on TV. A lot of noise in the night. Breakfast was ok. On the plus side now the location is great and there is great view from the roof of the hotel to Spinola bay.
Some info: Take X2 bus from aiport and get off at San Giljan
Take 12,13,14,15 bus to Valletta

Less than a 5 minute walk to both Spinola bay and the Paceville strip, the location couldn't have been better. The breakfast was outstanding with a good range of hot and cold food and made-to-order eggs and pancakes also available. Overall the service was fantastic and we found the hotel to be a great find for a low-mid range price. The only negative was that we requested a double room and we found that they had only put two single beds next to each other. Apart from that, no complaints and I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

We spent 4 nights here at the end of June and feel confident to recommend it to anyone. The party area of Malta is just minutes away along with a plethora of cafes and restaurants however the hotel is situated at the end of a small street protecting it from noise. The staff is nice, helpful and knowledgable. You can order and prepay for taxis from reception. The breakfast is more than adequate with some of the best hotel coffee you'll ever get. The pool is small but plenty of chairs were always free. In short, it was modern, clean, quiet and perfect for what we wanted.

Room Tip: Choose back side of hotel for extra quietness.
