Ideal location, good service and good for short stay. Hotel was clean and suitable for guests who do not require a pool etc and need a good base to return to after days out.

Just back from four nights in Valletta and very happy with our stay here. Yes it's a two star and simple, but the service is first class. Everything spotlessly clean, room done and towels changed every day, flat screen satellite tv (english channels a bit limited but you don't visit Valletta to watch eastenders!), hairdrier, comfortable beds. I contacted reception...

Thank you for your comment . I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and my staff managed to provide some food , even after the restaurant was closed.

As with all Maltese people, there is always a welcome and nothing is too much trouble. All the staff were very apologetic about the upgrading taking place, which will make the hotel even more attractive - lovely cool stairwells and newly decorated rooms. Very convenient for everything in Valletta and close enough to the buses and ferries. We will be...
