The hotel stole my deposit of 100 euros. They said I paid it to the previous manager ( of course not my fault) they were the worst , unfaithful and they want to take advantage of the people who doesn't speak English correctly. Also the rooms were not clean and they didn't have even a fridge

As has been said in other reviews, the Sliema Chalet Hotel is not a palace, but as a 3* hotel it makes a great base to travel round the beautiful island of Malta. All the reception staff were very pleasant and friendly, and were helpful if we asked questions about where to visit or buses etc. We had a balcony room opposite the sea (611) and the view was stunning, especially at sunrise. We had thought about hiring a car but decided to use public transport for the days we hadn’t booked trips. Using the buses was so easy as the bus stops were right outside the hotel and the tickets were very reasonable- €1.5 for 2 hours travel (you can travel on more than one bus in the allotted time which means you can hop off and check out a destination before continuing your journey or change buses to go to a different part of the island). Note: the bus price changes to €2 in high season. The hotel itself has a lovely restaurant next to reception and we had a delicious meal there on our first night, and as a hotel guest got a reduced bill by 10%. Breakfast was perfectly adequate - plenty of choice and we left each day full and ready to start an adventure. The negatives of the hotel are mainly down to it being a little tired, but in the main our room was clean and tidy and for the price we paid it was great value.

Sliema Chalet hotel is located about a 10 minutes walk from the center of Sliema, with a bus stop (with two buses that serve the airport) right outside the hotel and with a supermarket very close by. The hotel is basic and a little run down, but the rooms are clean. I had booked a room with a sea view which included a balcony. The room I was referred to the first night reeked of cigarette smoke and since I am oversensitive to cigarette smoke, the smell triggered a headache and a sore throat right away. What made matters worse was that every time someone went out on the balcony to smoke, the smell entered my room. So I spent the first night sleeping in an ashtray. The hotel staff was very nice when I brought it up during my first day and they did move me to another room with a sea view on a lower floor the following day. I don't know what was different about that room but it didn't reek of cigarette and I could only occasionally smell the cigarette smoke for a little while. I don't know if I had better luck with the neighbors in the new room, or if it mattered that I was moved to a lower floor than I had originally been assigned. It is a non-smoking hotel, but smoking is allowed on the balconies for the sea view rooms and I guess it's all up to chance if you end up next to a chain smoker or not, and it's also a gamble if they close the balcony doors behind them or not when they go out to smoke. I suppose this is not a problem specifically for just this hotel, it's probably the same for all hotels that offer balconies. Unfortunately, a lot of people smoke in Malta and it seems that a lot of tourists visiting Malta also smoke, so you will be exposed to excessive cigarette smoke every time you go outside. As mentioned, the rooms are a bit dated and could use some touch ups, but they are clean. The rooms were equipped with safes, but they locked with a key that you left at the front desk when you left the hotel. It didn't feel very safe to leave the key to the room safe at the front desk, although in reality it probably is safer than the electronic safes that most hotels offer. I kept my passport with me the entire time. The room also didn't have a fridge which was a shame, and it was hard for me to find power outlets. On the plus side though, the hotel offered one power outlet hid behind the tv, and it was the European type of outlet so no adapter was needed. The wifi was free and had a good signal, no complaints there. The walls are very thin, so you can hear your neighbors quite well and you could hear every word spoken in the hallway outside your room. I would consider staying here again during my next visit to Malta. It is reasonably priced and is in a good location if you don't feel the need to stay right in the center of Sliema. The staff are all very nice and helpful.

excellent location , nice friendly staff , large comfortable beds , get a taxi from the airport if its your 1st time theres set prices all over the island and pretty reasonable , after that get a bus-much cheaper. only bad point is we were woken up at 6am by some random person entering our room on the last day-don't know how they got a key and receptionist said workers dont start until 7.

Well this is 3* hotel so don't dream to find a palace. I found Chalet Hotel stuff very friendly and nice. Rooms were old and simple but clean. They have service for people who need to stay in city for longer as 11 AM, they offer store room and shower facilities. You can find hot and cold drinks vending machines. Next door restaurant is very good and offer good food for affordable price plus nice service and 10% off for hotel guests. All shops, sea side, bus stops are just next door from the hotel, better location is hard to find. All over I found it excellent value for your money, highly recommended for limited budged people.

We have seen a lot of the world and have stayed in many Hotels, Motels, and B&Bs. Sliema Chalet Hotel was the worst Hotel that we have ever had to be a a victim of. Very dark rooms had to have electric lights on when in the room day or night. On arrival towels were dirty and the floors had not been cleaned. Dodgy rail with a shower curtain and very small shower head plus not a walk in shower which was not good for us with knee replacement plus back and hip problems having to climb in and out of a bath with no hand rail was quite scary and dangerous. No tea or coffee facilities and NO fridge in the rooms in such a hot and humid country. Dining room staff beautiful girls but I do not think they were happy and not many smiles we felt very sorry for them. There was a problem with the coffee machine every morning. Not to mention that the Bain Marie was never replenished to the full on a daily basis. If you were 10 minutes before the cut off time for breakfast 7.30/9.30am to bad and you would miss out on anything cooked!

We stayed here for one week, it is well worth booking a seaview. This hotel is perfect for easy access to the ferries but slightly less busy, there are several bars nearby on the road on the seafront which are nice for a bite to eat and a drink .You can catch the local buses and the hop on/off buses outside the hotel.There is a restaurant next door to the hotel but we did not use it.Breakfast was basic but adequate to start the day,cereals, couple of types of fruit, small continental breakfast choice, toast etc.We had a kettle and hairdryer in the room.We took multi usb charger and we did need them as plug points were perhaps lacking a little.The bed was two singles together as one large double and were quite comfy.Our room was cleaned and clean towels every day, the shower was not modern but was absolutely fine, no issues with the pressure or hot water.We had a free safe and free aircon in the room.There are seven floors but two lifts so no issues getting up there, there is a terrace on the roof which is basic but ok to lay and soak up the rays .Ian and all the staff here were lovely and so helpful, always cheery whatever time of day, there is always someone on the desk. When we had an issue with the safe it was sorted out straight away.We were unable to secure a late checkout as they are so busy but they have a small lounge area and bathroom on 7th floor where you can use loo and have a shower before leaving if you wish.All in all i would recommend this as a good value budget base for exploring Malta

We are visiting Malta for the first time. We decided we wanted to stay in Sliema. We also were looking for a seaview and access to the neighboring activities. We found the hotel charming and affordable. It has a quaint look and great location. The hotel staff is professional and very helpful. I would recommend staying here for the location and proximity to activities.

I will start with .... if you are fussy don’t stay here. The shower is ancient, the decor is old and you will find so many issues especially when looking for them! I had dropped a bit of food without realising and woke up to ants around it! Once I cleared the food off the ants went never to be seen again! Very weird! The shower was awful but hey we cleaned ourselves so it wasn’t unusable! The beds were two singles together but made for a large double! Silver lining and all. The breakfast was basic basic basic but know this before booking so you aren’t disappointed. Staff were friendly and helpful. We didn’t mind this hotel because we only slept in it and that was all it was good for I’m sorry to say. Take it as it is if you just need to get your head down then choose here.. if you want more don’t choose here.
