My main requirements when I am on holiday is a clean bed and hot water, Given those two things, I will be quite happy. Unfortunately I had no hot water for 2 days. I was moved to a much nicer room with hot water.The staff were all very friendly and did what they could to put things right, and I... More

We wanted to stay in the south east of Malta for a couple of nights. I was aware of the Sensi Hotel's mixed reviews and when I booked it was with a degree of optimism. When we arrived there was nobody available at the check-in area to the side of the bar - a random girl had to be sent... More

The rooms are clean, quite and extra large with big bathrooms. The Air condition in my room worked just fine. I had some trouble with the light curtains but... More

I agree with Kate M and other reviewers. I booked into the Sensi, as it is now called, just for an overnight transit stay through Malta, in October 2012. The hotel appears uninhabited from the outside; top floor windows are blocked up, the main door (though you wouldn't know it was this) had a 'closed' notice, yet if you pushed......you... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night last Saturday in order to attend the Marsalokk market the following day. We were charged 5 star rates and this was demanded as soon as we arrived even before we were given the key to our room. Whilst the room itself was comfortable there was no hot water in the bathroom nor... More

I booked this hotel to visit friends in Malta. It is a two-star hotel, and therefore I had no expectations of a grand 5-Star. I was the only guest staying and refurbishments that are mentioned in other reviews were still ongoing. The hotel is basic. The rooms are basic. The welcome and friendliness are certainly not basic. Everyone was helpful... More

When I arrived there, I thought there mist have been a mistake... there were windows boarded up, no electricity, very tatty from the outside and in a completely desolate area.

Even though this hotel is not a 5* and from the outside it doesn't look all to flashy, just wait until you get inside it would just blow you away. The rooms are very clean with new clean towels everyday and bed sheets changed daily. The Hotel reception were very nice and always there for our needs. Pool was good... More
