Fantastic hotel. Extremely friendly and professional staff and great location. Made to feel at home from the moment you arrive. My favourite holiday location. The food is excellent and in walking distance to great restaurants in Sliema and the ferry to Valletta

We stayed at AX for our Honeymoon in Sept 2022. We loved it. The highlight for us was how friendly and helpful all the staff were at this hotel. Everyone was extremely courteous and polite. The staff really did demonstrate a fantastic level of service for guests and they take pride in doing so. The food was also very good with a great range of choice. Our room was spacious and kept very clean throughout our stay. Facilities were also excellent and we made frequent use of their excellent rooftop bar and pool, which has fantastic views of Sliema and Valetta. The location was brilliant for us. We would love to return on an anniversary visit.

We stayed for three nights here after our cruise. The staff at this hotel were amazing, specially the guys on reception who were both from Morocco. . Nothing was too much trouble and our room was wonderful. We had a deluxe room and it certainly was with views across the rooftops to the sea. The infinity pool on the roof was fabulous too, once again with wonderful views. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and stay here again. Can highly recommend the afternoon tea in the Talk of the Town cafe Delicious and loads of it. Not so the set meal on a Thursday in the Rooftop pizza/pasta grill. Certainly not value for money but we ate again on a different day and all was well.

Towards the top of the hill and the centre of Sliema, but the walk back is worth it! Really enjoyed our week here. Close to everywhere - the waterfront, ferries and buses, and even the small sandy beach at Ballota Bay, St Juliens. Food is good in the main restaurant but the top floor panAsian restaurant is their jewel. Made good use of their cocktail happy hour. Decent sized, well-equipped, and well-used gym. A couple of swimming pools; indoor a bit small. They have a 'iSee Malta rep' always stationed in the hotel lobby to book trips. Rooms very comfy and 5 star. Staff always very friendly and helpful. If you like the idea of Sliema, this hotel should be on your shortlist - a little pricey but very good value.

Really friendly well appointed hotel. Excellent room and well serviced. Great roof top pool along with an amazing Asian restaurant. Tremendous 360 degree views. Well worth considering. We enjoyed our stay from start to finish and easy access to Sliema front and also St Julie's Bay.

The hotel is very good, clean and comfortable. The staff was always smiling and willing to help us. We had to make an early checkout because of the airplane schedule, but they gave us a really good takeaway breakfast, it was a nice surprise. The breakfast was really good, the fruits, the omelettes and everything else. The hotel has an excellent location, you can get by foot in many important places in the town. 5 minutes to the ferry’s, 5 minutes to downtown. The view from our suites room was beautiful, but the best was the infinity pool from rooftop. From the roof top you could see Valletta, and on the other side the Mediterranean see. If we will go back in Malta, we would book again in this hotel. Thank you Malta, and thank you Ax the Palace hotel for the great experience we had!

The hotel really deserves it 5***** stars, beginning with the lobby, the multiple restaurants, pool and rooms. The service was always willing to help you, not only with wishes regarding food and beverages. Especially I want to thank Floyd, Simba and the whole reception team which made the whole stay very comfortable. Will definitely come back soon!

From arrival to departure the staff went out of their way to help you. Always a friendly smile and greeting. The room was comfortable and housekeeping did an excellent job. The staff at the restaurant and bars were also very friendly and polite. The view from the rooftop pool is awesome. We would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Malta.
