Just returned from 4 weeks stay in the Fortina and the quality of the evening meals has gone from good last year to very poor this year, the food is certainly not 4*.The breakfasts are ok. There are a lot of rumours going around the hotel that either the 4* will be pulled down at the later part of this...

Party of five stayed here in January 2017. We won't be returning. Our room was dated and dirty. We asked to change after paying for a superior room but we're told the hotel was full. There was a strong smell during the day coming into the room. All of us commented about it. Reception was informed but again the receptionist...

We only stayed a night, but the service was great (very helpful staff), the room was huge, clean and had everything we needed. I'd have liked to stay longer to also try the pool and spa, but next time for sure!!

Whilst the Hotel is perfectly fine as a base, it has seen better days. The need for refurbishment has prompted the owners to close it in October when it will be turned into apartments. Entertainment is terrible and the drinks are very expensive. We ended up going out after dinner each evening. The Italian is terrible but the Thai/Chinese is...

We stayed here for ten nights as we needed a winter break. Reception staff were not particularly helpful and appeared to often be talking on the phone rather than welcoming guests. We had a room labelled as with a garden view. However a garden view really means no view at all as the hotel is surrounded on the "non-harbour" side...

Staying for 10 days in January 2017, the Hotel Fortina, has a plaque on its front door which describes it as a luxury hotel. It most certainly is not luxury, or for star. A late 20th .century hotel, it is a rabbit warren, with ceilings in corridors that look almost temporary, the one outside our room was sagging, and about...

The Fortina's location is tremendous. Just across the harbour from Valletta. Ferry five mins walk. Bus stop two mins. Sadly, the hotel is showing its age. We were told by staff its going to be demolished and rebuilt. Just enlarge the lovely Fortina Spa Resort next door. Still good value and worth staying. The 'dine around' restaurants excellent. The Vallette...
