We stayed at the British Hotel the first days of our Malta trip The hotel is located in the old city which makes sightseeing a very easy walk. The staff were very courteous and helpful. There are restaurants, bars and shops close by. The view over the harbor is relaxing.

I was in Malta for the first time and attended the 2016 Junior Eurovision song contest and stayed in the British hotel in Valletta for 7 nights. I picked the hotel as it was close to the venue and could walk the 700 meters to the venue daily. Also as we were three people sharing, we needed a room with... More

We decided at short notice on a break in fascinating Valletta and delightful Malta. The British Hotel was one of only a few available. It's very well located just a short walk up the hill to the cathedral and city centre. It overlooks the Grand Harbour and so enjoys fabulous views across to the "Three Cities". The reception and bar... More

The British Hotel is a low frills, basic hotel, very clean, great breakfast, a perfect location to walk around Valletta, (also close to the main bus terminal), has an AWESOME view of the Grande Harbor and maybe the best thing is their amazing & helpful staff. Yes, the furniture in the room is dated and low frills but it is... More

This is a small hotel in need of a major refurbishment. That said it is in an amazing location with fantastic views over the Grand Harbour . If you are just looking for a bed and a shower because you are going to be out exploring ,then it works really well . Breakfast is poor but just round the corner... More

this hotel has a great location if you wouldl like to visit a center of Valletta town. It is located close to the bus terminal and you can easily get here by foot but be aware of that whole island are high hills and there are stairs on the street to get to the hotel. therefore I wouldn´t reccomend it...

On this third occasion I recommended it to my companion and we had twin rooms , single occupancy ( Rooms 121 and 124 @ over 100 euros per night each, room only) . As soon as I saw the rooms I requested a... More

David M, Owner at British Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for you comments. The fact that you had stayed twice already says something. One thing I can say is that all rooms are different since its an old building and therefore the rooms shown on the Web site are not necessary the same rooms one books unless it's specified in the reservation. Rooms 121 and 124 are twin... More

I stayed here in October 2016 and was happy I chose this hotel because of the location. Of course, as everyone else mentions, the view is amazing! Some of the positive aspects of the hotel of course are the location, but also the breakfast was very nice, and it is also wonderful to have that view every morning while eating... More

Thanks for your comments. Sorry if there was no booklet in your drawer. We usually put one in every room in the desk. However I would like to point out that the safe is quite basic as it has a keyhole so one just needs to get a key from the reception at no cost.. I would like to point... More
