I have just come back from spending a week here.
It's basic, you basically get what you pay for. But I don't mean it in a negative way, although I've awarded it only 3 stars...I would stay here again.
The room was basic, but clean. The mattresses in my room were new, thick, and hard so I found it difficult to sleep on, however my friend slept very well. I also didn't like how there was only one flat sheet, no matteress protection, or lining or fitted sheets, so often I'd wake through the night to pull the sheets down so I wasn't touching the matteress!!! I mean they did seem new, but still you never know who slept on it before you and what they did!!!
The hotel was quiet, I very rarely heard any noises from other guests.
Cleaners came daily and made your bed and changed your towels.
I chose Bed & Breakfast, but I did get bored of it after day 2. It's mostly continental with your cereals/meusli, yogurt, fresh fruit, cold meats etc. Every day you only got turkey sausages, beans, and eggs (boiled on day 1 and scambled on day 2, then boiled, then scrambled....) that was their hot foods (apart from the usual breads)
Lots of choices for restaurants nearby for alternatives.
Staff here were lovely, helpful, polite and friendly.
You need to ask for an iron or kettle and they'll lend it to you for the week, no problem.
The gym, from what I saw, was a cross trainer on the top floor! They have an indoor pool on the 6th floor and a plain rooftop with a few sunloungers. But it's too hot to stay on the roof in the summer.
Within walking distance to bus station, we caught the bus to Valetta easily (and it's so beautiful there).
It's very close to Bugibba, but far enough not to be disturbed by the other tourists.
Salina bay is really close by, so you can go for a paddle/swim in the sea if you find the pool here too small. Between 11am and 2pm we tended to do this as the sun hid behind the building then. However, the pool wasn't crowded ever, and I didn't experience screaming kids or annoying families.
Lots of tour companies in Bugibba (and on your walk from the hotel to there), we did a day out to Gozo, hidden treasures...I loved Gozo
yes I would recommend it to my friends-if they are on a budget.
