Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Waterfront Hotel garners praise for its excellent value, offering reasonable rates for its array of services. Guests have called out the cleanliness of both rooms and public areas, as well as the impressive amenities like the well-maintained pool, spa, and delightful breakfast options. While the service is generally lauded for its warmth and efficiency, a few travelers have had less favorable interactions at reception. Despite its central location being a hit for its accessibility, the vibrant atmosphere and live music may not be ideal for those in search of peace, as noise can be an issue.

Fantastic view from room across harbour to Valletta. Big comfortable bed. Perfectly situated for exploring Malta. Be aware Hotel has air con set to heat in winter. If doors to balcony closed room gets too hot to sleep. If doors left open a lot of noise from restaurants/road. Room clean and appeared recently refurbed. Everything worked and breakfasts good.

An overall nice Hotel. Good beds, nice with both a tempura and a normal pillow to choose from. Cleaning is top notch, both my room and public areas. (Roni and he’s colleagues made it nice) At the front desk you might meet Juergen, then you can be certain that you are in good hands. They also have a restaurant in the lobby that was better than what you normally would find at a Hotel. They also had a Spa and pool area that I hadn’t the pleasure to visit but judging on its popularity it’s probably holds the same high standard as the rest of the Hotel.

We had a fabulous stay & extended by a week so we could have more treatments with Anthony in the hotel spa. He was exceptional and found every lump & bump, worked on them & we now feel 10 years younger! If we could we would stay for another week! The hotel is lovely, has a lovely spa, comfy beds, great food, super service and is well located for public transport. The only down side is the traffic noise as it is on the main road but that's what also affords the fantastic views of Valletta across the bay. The area has so much to do and see and lots of nice restaurants (traditional and otherwise) at reasonable prices. Really a super stay ⭐⭐⭐⭐✨

The booking system was very simple to follow due the helpful staff. The front desk staff were very helpful especially Stephen Scerri who gave us very helpful recommendations. The room was very nice and clean. The only issue we found was the television. When trying to watch a video on YouTube, it would take literal hours to load, if it did end up loading. Apart from this, the room was perfect. The breakfast and the dinner buffet were very good but the dinner buffet didn't have that much of a selection. The spa facilities were all very clean and nice. The staff were all very informative and friendly. Overall, the stay was very nice.

Friendly staff, great location, good price, overall great hotel on waterfront. Despite its location on the busy waterfront, there is little noise inside the rooms with windows closed. Only inconvenience is that the nice heated pool is across the street and the hot tub on the 10th floor is really small, like for 2 people.
