“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Though it is not easy to find the hotel it is worth taking a while to finally reach this destination. Very helpful staff and clean rooms. They are really huge and modern with a nice view. I recommend breakfast as well, fresh and plenty to choose from. The hotel is not in the city centre so you can really relax after the whole day sightseeing.

We had a fabulous week in this lovely clean, friendly hotel where nothing was too much trouble for the busy staff. (There was some sort of big sporting event on the same week we were there).

The location is good if you want a quieter holiday that is still within walking distance of clubs and bars. Bus terminus is only about 10 minutes walk . 12 euros (for one adult) bought us a bus ticket that lasted all day to any destination on as many buses as we needed.

We were very glad of the air-con in our rooms as the temperatures were unusually hot !

We had orgianally booked a stay at the Cardor holiday complex. We arrived there to find the room was not at all what we wanted. (Dirty sheets, orange colour of water appearing from the taps and a bad smell of damp/mould)

We then tried to find another hotel to stay in. We arrived at the Il Palazzin after it was recommended to us by someone we know currently living in Malta. Simon the manager was fantastic! The hotel was almost fully booked but he managed to find us a room which would be availible from the following day at 3pm. So we arrived back the following morning and the room was instantly availible for us. He offered us a room and breakfast for a great price. The staff were so friendly always greeting you with a smile and a "hello how are you", or a "good morning" or "have you had a nice day out?" (if you had been on an organised trip somewhere)

The room was lovely, very clean and the air conditioning has no extra charge for use. it was so nice to come back to a cool room to sleep in. We hired the mini fridge and safe for an extra charge of 2Euro per day.

There was not alot of tv channels availible to watch and only one english news channel, this didnt bother us too much as we were there to enjoy the sights of malta or relax by the pool, not spend all day in the room watching tv.

There are two pools at the Il palazzin. One small shallow pool on the roof (LOVELY VIEWS and its so quiet and peaceful on the roof when sunbathing.) We pretty much had both pools to ourselves most days so that was lovely.

Lots of trips availible to book through the hotel for great prices.
Breakfast was also really nice, loads to choose from, cereal, fruit, meats, salad, sausages, eggs, beans, toast, bread rolls, croissants, even cakes!! not forgetting juice, coffee and tea.

Bars and resturants in the area are nice

One i have to mention is SUN CITY! lovely bar, great relaxed atmosphere lots of entertainment and the staff there are LOVELY!

There are many bars and resturants you can find which you can eat really tasty meals for a good price and the drinks are also a good price, in one bar we payed 3euros something for TWO double spirit drinks! Very cheap!

I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel! Malta is beautiful!! I'm going to book another holiday next year and im going to book it at this hotel again. definately recommend this hotel it is FANTASTIC!!

Have just returned from a fabulous week in Malta; stayed at Il Palazzin for the duration of the holiday. We enjoyed our stay there very much. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated in a quiet area and only 5-10 min walk from the sea front, bus station, shops and restaurants.
Great value for money and a great vacation; strongly recommend.

Room Tip: Book direct with hotel to get a room with sea view free of charge + complementary bottle of wine

Have stayed at Il Palazzin for 4 nights. I really enjoyed my stay there. Though the hotel is a bit run down, it is very clean and the staff is nice and helpful. Have never been to Malta before and the staff gave me good advise in what to see and how to get there.
If you don't want to stay in a very touristy area of Malta this is a great place and I recommend it.

We spend 4 nights in IL PALLAZIN hotel during Easter 2012. Hotel look impressing outside, there is quite big, clean pool. Staff in reception is very friendly and helpful. We have (with no extra charge) room with nice sea view. There is only 5 minutes walk to Bugibba squere and 3 minutes to bus station. Thats all good points, but do not expect to much. There is no english-language channels in 14 inch TV, breakfast is not to bad, but basic (cheap bread, eggs, frankfurters, beens (time to time), fresh fruits (one kind), youghurts, cheap cold meats (2 kinds) and lemon cake. Internet, deposit box and fridge available for extra charge. There are 2 training cycles on top flor and very little, shallow indoor pool on top flor. View from roof (sun deck) is beautyfull. Generally good value for money, but not a 4 stars.

Do not forget to visit PLUM TREE restaurant, which is only 2 minutes away from hotel and is definitelly best in Quawra :). Try maltese fish soup...

Room Tip: Try to book room with sea view (high floor), because it is probably the brightest thing in Il Pallaz...
