Hotel's Favorite
This is our second visit in this hotel. The first time we stayed in the piano room which is in of the older part of the hotel and is everything how they describe it - elegant and very spacious. So this time we went with a private terrace and the newer, contemporary side. Which is just as beautiful in a different way. There are a lot of beautiful hotels in the world, but what makes this one stand out, is the people that work there. You genuinely always feel very cared for and extremely welcomed!!! The always good humoured and helpful front of house, reception people- the wonderful lady who was in housekeeping and spent so much time, and detail making our room beautiful every day. The location is perfect, you are right outside Saint Paul’s Cathedral, you are minutes away from the water- and minutes away on the other side from the main shopping and restaurants. Five stars definitely.

A great location in central Valleta, walking distance to all attractions and restaurants, yet in a quiet enclave by St Paul’s Church. The hotel occupies a former city mansion and public areas are elegant in a contemporary style. From arrival to departure all staff are warm and professional. We had a problem with mosquitos in our room and they very efficiently helped us by installing various repellents. Our room in the roof extension was a little small and would have benefitted from better storage but the attractive terrace would be a great extension to the room in warmer weather. We loved being in the shadow of the huge cupola of the Carmelite church across the street!

This hotel is simply a gem in the heart of Valetta run by Matthew Ullul and his amazing international experienced and kind staff, including Sabrina from Argentina, Rose from the Philippines, Peter from Austria, and many others. The rooms are spacious and quiet. The service is impeccable. The restaurant Risette with its chef Steve Scicluna is quite something else. We ate there twice as the food was exceptional with many dishes reaching Michel star level, even though Risette does not even have a recommendation in the Michelin Guide, let alone a star. Well, it was our gain! Risette has an interesting wine list and a very varied, original menu, predominantly with French influences, but not overly heavy, and serious value for money. We will be back in Malta this year, if only to stay and eat at casa Ullul and Risette!!

Fantastic stay, great service and lots of attention to detail. We took suite 8 and it was very well prepared, clean and comfortable. The terrace was well worth the price especially for breakfast in the morning. Overall a great stay with very caring and thoughtful staff too!

Great small hotel with just a few rooms, all furnished in a special and modern way, which is an exciting contrast to the old building. The most striking element is certainly the terrace of two suites with a view of the dome of the church opposite, which seems to tower just an arm's length away, incredibly impressive. The only negative is that the furniture and cussions on the roof top terrace could not be used since they were wet and mouldy and had pigeon dirt. The first two nights we stayed in suite 5 and all rooms except for the 2 rooftop suites are way too loud due to the noise and accoustic on the street and the windows which do not close.

Wonderful boutique hotel with an outstanding restaurant. Comfortable, well-appointed room and superb staff. Ideal location, in the heart of old Valletta, surrounded by bars, restaurants, shops and all amenities. Breakfasts were ideal fuel for the walking expeditions that took in the best of Malta.

We had a wonderful week at Casa Ellul. It was our first visit to Malta and to Valletta and we were so glad that we chose to stay there. It is wonderfully placed in the heart of old Valletta, directly opposite the iconic Carmelite Basilica and a five-minute walk from the harbour and Sliema ferry - and pretty much the rest of historic Valletta. We had a beautiful, quiet suite in the interior of the hotel. Breakfasts were freshly prepared to order each morning and beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were exceptional: friendly, helpful, and extremely professional. Hugh thanks to Sladjana, Fiona, Renniel, Violy, Christian, and Salman for making our stay so special. We would highly recommend Casa Ellul.

The Hotel is close to the centre and easy walking distance to lots off restaurants and bars. The hotel feels very exclusive and indulgent and nothing is to much trouble. The room 7 was very quirky with a outside space with a hot tub and sun deck which was great . The space in the room was just adequate and had everything you needed for a short stay . The breakfast was excellent with enough choices for a healthy start to the day . All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend to our friends..
