This was our third time staying at The AX Palace hotel in Sliema and I can’t recommend the hotel highly enough. The warmth and welcome from the excellent reception staff, the welcome drink and the ambience in the lobby clearly indicates why this has been awarded five stars. Our deluxe balcony room was beautiful with the comfiest of beds. Perhaps not to everyone’s taste, but our balcony had a side view onto the church which had regular bell ringing. We loved it! Breakfast at the hotel was phenomenal. Excellent selection of hot and cold buffet and, like reception staff, the waiting staff in the restaurant were polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We were unfortunate in so much as the restaurant was closed in the evening whilst we were there. We dined out locally in a fab wee Italian restaurant on the seafront on our first two evenings but decided to use the Penny Black restaurant at the sister hotel, The Victoria, on the Friday as they had advertised a ‘Fryday Fish and chips’ deal and my husband loves fish and chips. So so disappointed. The waiter was more interested in the football on the large screen than waiting tables. We waited 45 minutes for a frozen fish supper! Peas were cold and watery. I ordered a shredded duck salad which wasn’t fresh - the lettuce etc was soggy and discoloured. The shredded duck was served as a burger type concoction which looked out of place on a salad. I left it. The waiter just took the fish away without questioning why I hadn’t touched it! So disappointing - wouldn’t return to the Penny Black (of The Victoria Hotel).

We celebrated Chinese New Year at this amazing hotel from Saturday lunch time till afternoon on Sunday. Rooms were super, large and uniquely furnished with style and attention to detail. Service was top notch from the moment we stepped into the hotel, to the restaurant (temptasian) to the housekeeping staff and also at the time of checking out….without a doubt 10/10. We enjoyed the facilities….indoor pool, sauna and steam room. Views from the hotel room was amazing!! Definitely recommended even just for one evening to have that well deserved pampered break. Will be back.

The Palace, situated in the heart of Sliema and 10min walk from the center from this bustling town is ideal for weekend breaks. The friendly and warm staff made our stay a delightful experience and we thoroughly enjoyed the attention given for all our requests. The accommodation is superb and every conceivable amenity is available within the hotel. The highlight of our stay was dining one evening on the top floor restaurant of the Hotel at the TemptAsian where a vast choice of Asian dishes are on offer in plush surroundings and friendly staff. Definitely, a hotel 5 star hotel to return to again.

Rooms were very large (Executive rooms), clean and beautifully decorated. Beds were huge and super comfy as well as pillows ! The food was exceptional and the service from all the hotel staff was excellent - all staff were very helpful and observant. Breakfast was very good with a good selection of different food stations. The indoor pool was a bit small however it was probably a busy weekend since there was a special offer running. We had to ask the pool attendants to sweep the water away from pool since this was very dangerous and someone could have slipped. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and would definitely return.

If you want a relaxing weekend, great food and extremely friendly staff you just need to visit the AX Palace. We just had a fantastic weekend with a group of cousins. The whole team from the moment we walked through the entrance, really looked after us all. The rooms we had were fantastic and beautifully arranged with a very good size balcony and view. Then the food at TemptAsian was delicious and so plentiful. The hotel facilities are wonderful and my wife and I had one of the best massages ever. There is only one problem when you stay at the AX The Palace - You just don’t want to leave there! Thanks again to all the friendly staff and Sylvain for helping me with this booking.

We had a fantastic week long stay in this perfectly located hotel. The staff were excellent and thoroughly looked after us from the moment we checked in on 6 January. We had a very spacious junior suite on the 6th floor and the views were amazing, overlooking Valletta. It was so good, we could see the ferry leave Valletta to Sliema, leave and get to the port in time before it arrived. Our balcony was a very good size, with enough room for a table, chairs and two sun beds. The bathroom was incredibly big and the shower was so good, I really hated getting out of it. Every day, the rooms were cleaned perfectly. Breakfast had a great choice of cold and hot food buffet. There is always someone available to do the eggs for you, that suit your preference. The omelettes were always cooked well, so I had to opt for one every day. The gym was well stocked and very quiet. The location was excellent and a short walk to the port, shopping, bars and restaurants. Another plus was not having to wait any time for a lift, as long as you press all the buttons. Overall, I cannot fault anything about this hotel and it is a shame there is no + scores on Tripadvisor as this hotel would definitely have one from me.

An excellent 5 star hotel! The reception staff, in particular, Floyd, was exceptional: friendly, accommodating & very helpful. The waiting staff at TemptAsian & The Tabloid restaurants were efficient and extremely attentive. There is a chef to prepare eggs to guests' requests, besides the splendid array of breakfast items. A great way to start the morning! We had the Chinese set menu, to usher in the Lunar New Year. Not disappointed at all :5 courses of delightful dishes with a night view of Valletta/ Sliema to satisfy any diner. The bedroom was well-lit with numerous charging points. The room was really nice & tastefully furnished. The beds were comfortable with soft pillows and a nice sitting area. This hotel definitely checks all the boxes of a 5-star hotel!

From booking a transfer to and from the airport, to organising a cold platter on a late arrival, to meticulous levels of cleanliness, to helpful, smiley and highly skilled professionals in all areas of the hotel, those were 3 dream nights. Thank you for everything, Kevin :) (and Malta!).
