We generally knew where we wanted to stay in Valetta as we were interested in the history, the view of the Grand Harbour and the accessibility of many of the main attractions. We discovered the British Hotel almost by accident and had a very good experience when booking it direct with the owner. Arriving by taxi (do not attempt to... More

This is an old hotel being renovated and upgraded. We stayed in a room on the older side and loved it. Our room was on the top floor of the old side of the hotel with a large terrace. Staff all cheerful and helpful and the place was spotless.

Very well located hotel in Valletta, 200 m from the Victoria Gate, 400 m from the ferries to the 3 Cities. Rooms with an unforgettable seaview towards the 3 Cities and the harbour with the daily traffic of giant and smaller cruise ships. A lounge and a new & good restaurant "Panorama", both facing the harbour, very quiet place and... More

I was desperate to find somewhere to stay for two nights at the end of a trip to Malta and the British Hotel came up trumps. I had a small room with bathroom tucked away at the end of a labyrinth of corridors/steps. No air-con but a fan, which helped in the high temperatures at that time. Breakfast was included... More

A very basic room which was in need of some maintenance. A friendly welcome however and everywhere was clean and tidy. I did not use any other facilities but as said before, the view was good. It's a great location for exploring the town or harbour.

Fantastic view, including an hour of spectacular fireworks in the harbor of Valletta. Slow, but pleasant service. Remember to book a table on the balcony in advance! We never understood the firework schedule, but we were lucky this time. 👍

Just came back from a 6 days trip in Malta and stayed at the British Hotel for 5 nights. As I booked only a few weeks ago, I honestly went for it as it was relatively cheap compared to other hotels. Booked a room with view on the sea and was not disappointed at all! The staff is nice, the... More

Been there twice - in March and now in July. Important to know when gliding thru reviews - the renovation of restaurant is finished so they serve breakfasts plus it's open throughout the day and evening. Also a little additional bar one floor above it to serve another terrace. Another improvement - much stronger wi-fi: on several spots over the... More
