“English course and sightseeing in Malta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We had 2 excellent weeks with almost too hot weather for an October holiday.
Unfortunately there are no blinds outside of the windows.
We enjoyed the good breakfast buffet.
Next time I would choose a room with a balcony.

JUst a quick review. Hotel is uber cool. Very modern and clean. Check-in was super quick, given key cards, pool towel cards and discount for Avenue restaurant. Parking available under the hotel which was a bonus. The rooms are very modern, altough our room had a poor view looking out onto other rooms in the hotel with no view of St Julians. Breakfast was fine, with meats, cereal, sausage, eggs, etc...

Location is great for Paceville. 2 min walk but far enough away from the noise. With regards to Paceville, I enjoyed it. Some say it smells and is seedy. Didn't smell and just because there are some 'gentlemen' clus doesn't make it seedy. Not exactly Amsterdam.

I'd stay here again if the price was right. We padi £200 for 3 nights in October.

Room Tip: Room 418 faces into hotel. Ask for city view.

excellent hotel, sleek,ultra modern, spotless and good service though an ocassional smile wouldn,t go amiiss and night service at the bar could stand improvement (x3 attempts to make a margarita, only customers but every table on terrace dirty glasses and ashtrays).
breakfast- good selection and good quality though maybe could change the ´hot selection´occasionally!! roof terrace and pool a haven from the bustle of st julians! overall good value compared to other options and nice touches like émpty´fridge in room for your own goodies and FREE parking beneath the hotel which is a godsend if hiring a car in malta!!!

The hotel is very clean with a nice decor and a small pool on the roof terrace. Very good price - performance ratio. At check-in, i was warmly welcomed an my reservation was processed promptly. I can recommend this hotel and I would not hesitate it again any time.

My stay at the Valentina was brilliant. The hotel was very clean, the staff were very helpful, my room was very good once I'd sorted out the air conditioning, thanks to a helpful member of staff. The breakfast was fine - I think there was something for everyone. My only problem was the shower tray which became slippery once the shower gel was used. The weather played it's part and was brilliant.

Room Tip: My room was on the first floor on the reception side of the hotel. This proved to be very quiet.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Valentina in St Juliani and our meals in the Acenue restaurant which is affiliated with the hotel. At check-in, we were warmly welcomed and our reservation was processed promptly. The reception staff took time to show us where the different facilities were located and we were treated to a welcome drink. Later on, I heard the manager compliment a member of the bar staff on his work and it was clear then that one of the reasons for this hotel's success is its valued treatment of staff. The rooms are modern and spacious; a table and chairs are provided on the balcony for enjoying a tea or coffee so thoughtfully provided by the hotel. The breakfast area was spotlessly clean and there was a lovely selection of food on offer each day. I would definitely recommend this hotel and it would be my hotel of choice on a return visit to Malta.

I contacted the hotel as I found a "too good to be true" price on a website, the hotel had never heard of this website but reduced their price by 10% from their advertised price, which was great!
Hotel very clean, nice decor, pool a bit small but staff etc all very good. no complaints. area is good too, close to the action but not in a noisy area.
