Keeping in mind that Electra is a guesthouse it has all the important thing such as Great value for money, nice and very clean rooms, perfect location, wonderful English breakfast. Staff we're ok. The only thing is that it does not have a lift and those stair are hard especially it your staying on the top floor. Also it does... More

Good english breakfast. And, being italian, we got additional croissants, espresso or cappuccino with prompt answer by the staff. In the same location the same staff manages a very good restaurant. The staff speaks italian. Just to know : there are some rooms at third/forth floor without lift. It wasn't a big problem for us but if somebody can't easily... More

This is a basic budget centrally located guesthouse. Rooms are spotlessly clean, with fresh laundered sheets & good buffet breakfast including English and continental. Only drawbacks = no TV in room and the loads of stairs as there is no lift. Aircon is by €1 coin. Eg €2 lasted nearly 5 hrs. If you're too stingy - there are fans... More

Good position in the malsaforn bay, close to the bus stop and just near the seafront. Narrow room,anyway comfortable enough if you use to sleep or just little more.Nice small terrace with seafront view. Some accessories need to be fixed in the bathroom, even if it is in good condition. Basic continental breakfast, but enough.

The place is old and dingy. We were given a tiny room on the 7 or 8 floor lost count going up those steps as there is no lift. We are in our 60s so no way were we to be going up and down those steps so we decided we were not staying as nobody had told us there... More

Nice little family-run guesthouse in Marsalforn. Excellent location: just few hundred meters from bus stop, beach, restaurants and dive shops. I chose this one for the location and price for a solo traveler. They even had a single room with balcony and sea view. The room was rather small but functional and spotless. Wonderful shower and balcony for drying scuba... More

Negatives: Very disappointed with the room and booking. You see, knowing we could cancel for free up to 7 days in advance, we booked online and emailed Electra 14 days in advance to ask if we could have a sea view room. I explained we had booked online but we're unsure which rooms were available. Marie Rapa emailed a reply,... More
