I tried this as an alternative to The Waterfront. It's location isn't as good nor is the rooftop pool but it shares a spa with its 5 star sister (adjoining); much better air-con, better catering and the rooms are more comfortable. - if somewhat old fashioned. Gets my vote.

The hotel is in a fantastic location on a quiet side street, just a few minutes walk from the city gates outside which the buses depart for other locations in Malta, and no more than 5 minutes from the main attractions in the centre of Valletta; also convenient for the Sliema ferry, a must-do on an evening for picture-postcard views...

I liked this place. Clean, central good breakfast, but echo the comment of the poor orange juice at breakfast. The 2 breakfast chefs very friendly after asking for 2 fried eggs at breakfast. A short downhill walk from the Silema ferry and around the corner from Republic street being able to return to the hotel for a siesta at the... More

We had a lovely stay at the Osborne Hotel. It was clean and recently refurbished. The breakfast was OK, we avoided the scrambled eggs, but it was still fine. The air con in the rooms was effective, albeit a bit on the noisy side. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is a "plunge Pool" (aka a small pool) and... More
