We stayed in suit 7, a duplex with a hot tub overlooking the beautiful dome and harbor of Valletta. We requested a bottle of bubbly upon arrival and were not disappointed, a cold bottle was waiting for us ready to be consumed. The hot tub was heated perfectly, we enjoyed the beautiful sunset and lights of the city. The breakfast was lovely, served by the sweetest staff. Highly recommend if you want a 5 star experience!

We were so pleased with our choice of hotel . It was beautifully decorated and in a quiet side street . The staff make this hotel a big thank you to Carolina and Alfredo. We ate at the Risette restaurant twice and the food was fabulous. The only thing that was missing was some fresh fruit at breakfast . Would we stay again definitely!!!.

We stayed on our anniversary in Suite 3 for 2 days. After long studies on what suite to choose, we did the right choice. It is in the original old part of the house, so you get all the old features (tiles, wooden beams, Maltese closed balcony, etc), while enjoying the comfort of this top boutique hotel. The service is outstanding, and you feel very welcome throughout your stay. I don't know who had the idea to put a free-standing bath half in the balcony, but it is an excellent one. The bathtub takes two persons, and you can almost enjoy a bath under the stars, while the big church opposite prevents any unwelcoming peeks. From the towel like bath ropes to the daily chocolate, you can dig away from the everyday life and enjoy this high-class treatment. We went for the Egg Royal breakfast option with some pastries and croissant. Everything is homemade and tasted delicious. You might wonder why I didn’t give a full rating when everything was perfect. There were a couple of things which the hotel might want to improve to make it even more wonderful. I can only speak about our suite, so might not be applicable to every room – Casa Ellul, you might want to look into these: - Some maintenance is needed – the toilet flushing panel is loose and one button is missing. - The room as a lot of switches, but we didn’t figure out what is for what and around half of them didn’t work (we mentioned the wall lights not working, for example twice to the receptionist) - The mattress of the bed is not as comfortable as originally thought. Might need a replacement or some toppers, it felt quiet soft - The entertainment programme on the TV seems very French orientated. Although some titles are in English most of the working programmes, series, movies seem to be in French or some English language entertainment got a streaming error. Less would be more here. Would be come back to Casa Ellul? Definitely. Would we choose a different room? Likely not. Would we recommend this hotel to other travellers for one of the best stays in Valletta? Definitely.

We enjoyed a really lovely stay at Casa Ellul in Valletta. From the airport collection service arranged by the hotel, through to airport drop off, everything was taken care of. Lovely breakfast every morning, drink bottles filled for day ahead, turn down service every evening, and funky, unique rooms with personality right in the heart of Valletta. Well worth a stay, and while small in suites (only 9 hotel suites I think) it is big in personality and the team is very attentive to your needs.

What can I say about this place ??!! Great location in downtown Valleta just steps from bars and restaurants - 2 Michelin starred restaurants less than 250 m from it. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom quite opulent. The breakfast was delicious and made to order. Even a ghostly (?) encounter in the hallway our last night. It’s a few hundred year old dwelling after all. The best part was the staff and proprietor who made us feel at home the moment we arrived late Sunday evening. From the front staff and the lady who tended to our room to the very attentive owner - made our 1st trip to Malta all the more wonderful. Thanks again and best wishes to continued success !!!
