“Large room with all the utilities...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The hotel is located very close to the bus station Qroll, and to the two mini-supermarkets...Inside the hotel room is clean, well divided, has a balcony...On the roof the hotel has a small pool...The cleaning services are good, the personnel cleans daily....The reception is not open all the time, and also they gave us one key for 3 persons. When I requested for second key they don't have it...The accomodation price is average...Also the hotel is at 10 minutes from McDonalds and from the sea...The mini port from where you can take the boat to Comino Island is also 15 minutes from hotel...

We stayed at The Damiani for two weeks in June. Despite what some people say it's in a nice quiet location and quite a short walk to the square if you find the right route. We contacted them in advance and asked for a room at the front which they kindly did. The cooking facilities are basic, a single hob and halogen oven but we knew enough decent restaurants that it wasn't a problem. There was plenty of hot water and the shower over the bath was what weI expected for a holiday hotel. The room was cleaned everyday, even on days when we told them they didn't need to do it and there was always clean towels. There was washing up liquid, a sponge and tee-towel provided but we found the cups too small so bought some, they were nice enough to bring home and a good reminder.

The pool area is superb and kept clean at all times, they bar downstairs is good and they got big screens set up for the football which was nice.

We are not the sort to ask many questions in reception but they were helpful in letting us stay in the room longer on our last day which was appreciated.

You get what you pay for at this hotel,

Room Tip: Phone or Email via Facebook page and ask for a room at the front.

The staff was friendly and helpful and the room includes Wi-Fi. However the television set was not working properly and there was no ventilator or remote control for the air-conditioner. The shower was a bit old but the bath was very good.

I feel this is a tricky review to write - why ? - because of the price we paid and the fact that we had never been to Malta before. So here goes.
Our flight arrived in the morning and we were pleasantly surprised that a studio was ready for us to go to straight away, I did get a phone call a couple of days before flying out to ask if we were still going and what time we got in, a very nice touch I think. First impressions of the studio (no 48) was it was a good size. It had a double and a single bed, a sofa - which was a sofa bed, a large wardrobe, set of drawers, old portable tv which was absolutely useless, dining table, 3 chairs and a kitchen area at the end of the living space.
This consisted of a fridge with small freezer compartment, which we had to defrost, a table top cooker of oven/grill and 2 rings and an additional 2 ring appliance, toaster and kettle. In my opinion really all you need for a holiday kitchen. On the negative side the hot water in the kitchen was extremely slow running and the hot water tap handle kept falling off as the stop was missing and there was no plug in the sink. I had taken a washup sponge so put the washup liquid, which is provided, on that and washed the dishes under running water. There was crockery for 3 some of which were chipped and the glassware was a mismatch. The bathroom was large and we found the water pressure ok and we always had plenty of hot water. A couple of cracked tiles and some ingrained mould around the soap tray over the bath but nothing that bad. The wifi worked in the room most of the time for us, in the evening you had to move nearer the door to get reception, that really wasn't a problem. We never paid the 8 euros a night for the air con, we slept with the balcony door open and we soon got aclimatized.
The room was to the front of the hotel with a smallish balcony which got the sun in the morning. It does overlook 2 bars which to start with we thought would cause a problem but they weren't too bad. The view wasn't great but heah it was of Malta and being at the front was certainly better than being at the rear which overlooked private flats with the washing an goodness knows what on show.
Our room was cleaned and the beds made every day and you can have your towels changed daily should you wish. Use the sign on your door.
Of course there is always the roof terrace by the pool to sit on. There is a sea view from here and there are tables and chairs should you want to eat there and of course sunbeds. I think they were possibly the most uncomfortable sunbeds I ever used. Didn't put me off though as I was up there every afternoon. The pool is a godsend for cooling down. I recon it's about 8 x 4 meters. The main problem with the pool was the scum around the water line. It wouldn't take much to wash this away with a bucket and a cloth. It was never that busy when we were there.
The apartments are central and within easy walking distance of the sea (no beach ), Bugibba square where most of the restaurants and popular bars seem to be, the bus station (a tip we were given is to get on the bus at the stop before the bus station, which is just up from the Square ) etc. We did a couple of trips on the local bus, Mdina and Valletta and it was no problem. Both worth a visit. We also did a half day cruise tour of the caves and Comino which we enjoyed but half a day was enough.
The supermarket to the right and on the other side of the street as you leave the apartments has most things you may need just don't expect a smile.
If you fancy a posh looking lido a new one has just opened up next to the aquarium, up from the Square, it is 10 euros a day for lesser sunbeds or 15 euros for the big thick white ones. There is an infinity pool. It did look lovely but I was put of by the music they seemed to play constantly.
Now the Damiani apartments are they value for money - probably yes. Would we stay here again I'm afraid not. Mind you I don't think Malta has won our hearts.
Thanks to Rutger who was great.

Just got back from 10 days at the Damiani and we both had a brilliant time, the rooms were more than we expected for the price, large room with all utilities and also decent sized bathroom with powerful walk in shower was more than adequate. There was a good sized and well kept pool with good views of Buggiba from roof terrace.

Hotel has its own bar with lots to offer, many of the prices beat those found at the local establishments so a great place to kick back.

Staff were excellent and would go out their way to help! Big thank you to William, Charles and Rutger for a great service and making us feel very welcome!

Stayed here for 10 nights. Like all of my reviews I make the judgement on what I paid versus what I expect for the money. I paid about £20 per night and had a room on the 4th floor facing the front of the hotel.
The rooms were clean. A bit of mould around the bath seal, but nothing to worry about. Cleaner came around every day and you get clean towels every day if you want them. We had a double and single bed, a settee, and a small kitchen area with two cooking rings, an oven, and a fridge. We only used the fridge.
The sockets in Malta are the same as the UK so there is no need of adaptors for British holidaymakers. They have irons and hairdryers you can have from reception. There's no fee, but there's a €10 returnable deposit.
Everyone on reception was helpful, for example, helping us print off boarding passes. The hotel sells bottled water at €3 for 6 two litre bottles...Similar prices to the Supermarkets. They also arranged a taxi for us to go to the airport.
The Damiani is about 10 minutes walk down the hill to Buggiba square.
I have given this a rating of five. It's not the Hilton, but then again, it's not €200 a night. Brilliant Value!!!
