“wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

we didn't actually stay here but called in for a drink as we were looking for somewhere to eat Robert the barman reccomended one of the hotel restaurants and said he had eaten there it was the restaurant at the bottom of the large internal staircase.We had a wonderful meal and the live entertainment (a couple of men playing a guitar and singing around the tables) was unusual but great,we visited the hotel for a drink on several occasions and have eaten at other venues next to the Hotel and all were well worth a visit as is the Portomaso Casino a lot of fun but takes a while to get registered the first time and take your passport.The bar staff here are brilliant and the quarted deck bar has wonderful views overlooking the marina. The Hotel is situated in a fantastic area and there is a lift just outside the Hotel that takes you down to the marina where you can have a walk to the Cavileri Hotel and then a short walk to the shops and local restaurants. Try this hotel you will not be dissapointed and watch out for Robert in the bar he is an obvious asset to the hotel

Overall the hotel is nice, clean and staff are friendly and helpful. However the decor in our room was somewhat outdated, and not inkeeping with the hotels overall look and feel. Particularly in the bathroom with the shower curtains.

we really enjoyed the facilities such pool and gym. Luckily the pool area was not very busy, (hotel was probably at 40% capacity) but imagine it can get annoyingly loud and busy during school holidays.

The hotel is at good walking distance to cafes, restaurants, bus station and small shops. We struggled to find good restuarants (stay away from the ones by the bay) so we opted for Blue Elephant one evening. We would recommend it. Also recommend the restautant at Le Meridien.

Just came back from our 4 nights stay in this great hotel.

General:
Situated in quite but central area. Main tourist attractions (Valetta & Sliema) can be reached by bus (the station is within 2 min walk). There is a supermarket nearby (Arkadia foodstore). Lots of restaurants & pubs within short walk.

The room:
Stayed at 9th floor, had amazing sea view! The room was very spacious, bed was ok. For me it was too soft. The room is equipped well incl ironing board, coffee and DVD player (put cartoons for the kid :) ). Air condition was efficient as well.

Service:
The staff was very helpful and efficient, we've asked for the baby food for breakfast and the chef had prepared exactly what we've asked. They suggested to tell them in advance so they will prepare the food and everything will be ready for our coming.
We've asked for baby cot and it was provided incl bedding.
Concierge service was very useful, they can help you to plan your day efficiently (where to go and how can you get there).

Breakfast:
Excellent selection of cold and hot dishes, you can find all you want. Even in rush hours everything run smoothly and the stuff was friendly and helpful. We had BB so didn't try their other restaurants..

The only con is the internet cost, 12 Euro / day. Its just internet, we are in 2012 and not in 1992.. On my opinion, in 5* hotel of this class it should be complimentary.

Stayed for 1 night in early October and stayed in a lovely room in the new section of the hotel which was a modern dream - huge bathroom which has shutters that open out over the bed with views out to sea. Glorious and beautiful. I left the curtains open and woke to the sun slowly coming up over the sea. Wonderful. The food was fantastic, both dinner and breakfast. I'd love to return for leasure!

Room Tip: I liked the modern newly built area, but the older rooms have lovely old-italy style charm

My wife and I and 2 friends stayed in the Hilton for 5 nights in early October. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in and I have travelled throughout the world. The rooms are excellent, although a tad quirky (you can see into the shower from the main room, which is a bit kinky) the bed was sooo comfortable and everything is designed in the room to make life easy.

The staff are excellent and reflects the mood of all the Maltese people we came across....just so very friendly and helpful.

I can't really add to what has been said before but we did venture out form the hotel and explored local bars and eateries (Lulu's and Maltese Mama are very good, as is Buffalo Bills)
We also travelled by open top bus around the north of the island, took boat trip to Gozo and cruise around the harbour of Valletta. All recomended

Room Tip: We stayed on 326 which is in the contemporary part of the hotel. Part sea-view. It was fine

I stayed with 2 male friends, Hotel was superb in every way. Although we never asked or paid for it we had a sea view and Jacuzzi. This is the 5th time I have been to Malta and if possible I will always in future stay here, definitely worth the extra.

Breakfast, service, pool ... everything could not be faulted.

Room Tip: Grab a sea view if you can......

I was in the Hiltons first for a business conference and then my friends flew out to have an extended girls holiday.

If I went back to Malta I will 100% stay there. It pretty much ticks all the boxes. The only thing I would say is that at times the reception area can be quite busy so you end up waiting to check in. Also the building blocks the sun so when you are in the pool past 5pm the sun would no longer be out.

Apart for those little things I would certainly recommend it as the place to stay in Malta.
