The location is good, near to Sliema pier, where you can get a ferry to Valletta. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. We had a room with a nice view and a decent size, but we were first given 2 twin beds instead of one double bed. They fixed their mistake after our complaint. Breakfast is pretty average and it...

We stayed for 10 nights as a couple. The room was perhaps slightly dates, but was spacious, with a great side-sea view of the Sliema harbour and across to Valletta. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom and shower all worked exactly as you'd expect. There was a TV with a few English channels (always would like more, but...

This hotel has wonderful, but sadly faded, kitschy charm. The staff were all warm and friendly, the location was great, and the view from my window was beautiful. I worried a bit when I saw that earplugs were one of the provided toiletries, but they proved unneeded. If refurbished, I would seriously consider staying there for all my San Francisco...

Stayed here with a sea facing balcony from 20/27 October 16. In the weeks prior to arrival I read some very poor Trip Advisor reviews saying that the hotel was run down and badly in need of re-furbishment. The reviews were so bad I tried to find alternative 4* accommodation with a sea facing view. Due to the town being...
