We stayed at this hotel as the last hotel in 3 of our trip to Malta, and I can not say anything negative. The staff are friendly and helpful, it looked magnificent in its Christmas best and everyone was doing their best with CV19 restrictions. It is wonderfully located just outside the city but close enough for a good walk back to the hotel after a wonderful dinner. We needed a room for 3 and everything was ready

The hotel was quiet in December but staff remain friendly and attentive. Rooms well appointed but showing their age a little. Breakfast was good quality. View over harbour is excellent. Its about 5 minutes walk to the Old City gate. The hotel has a spa/gym/swimming pool but I didn't use as I was on business

This hotel is in a brilliant location in Malta, a few minutes walk away from Valletta and the bus station is right on the door step to take you to wherever you need to go. We have been to Malta many times and this is by far the best hotel we have stayed in. The staff are very lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them, The breakfast was nice and very covid friendly. The rooms were very spacious with plenty of storage. Tea, coffee and water provided every morning. I just can't find a fault with our stay so much so we have already booked to come again next year.

Pros : Impressive lobby area Large hotel room with plenty of space and storge for all our things Tea, coffee and water provided in the rooms each day Excellent service from professtional, kind and friendly staff Fantastic location - only a 7/8 min walk into Valletta and about a 10 min walk to the ferry for Silema lovely views Great pool area Cons Hotel is tired and dated and is in desporate need of a re-fresh Gym is too hot - air conditioning did not work well and it was always too hot - even in November Ceiling above our shower had a crack and leaked water from above Sliding patio doors in room were very heavy to pull and difficult to close and lock Food was average - had an evening meal at night but nothing special Breakfast was served to you at buffet area - not a huge amount of choice - bit disappointing

This beautiful hotel is centrally located in the middle of Valletta, near both the harbor and public transportation, although the hotel does have its own (very small) beach. The lobby harkens back to the grand old hotels, with a fancy staircase and beautiful lighting. The staff were super friendly and helpful with whatever we needed, our room was very comfortable, if a bit dated, and there are a lot of amenities available throughout the property. Breakfast was very good with a large variety of buffet options, and the hotel takes COVID precautions seriously. Many of the rooms have balconies, and you can see the gardens from some of the rooms. There's a large indoor pool, but we didn't try it. Please note that while you can walk from the hotel to the downtown area, there's a bit of an uphill walk, so it might be challenging for some folks.
