“Excellent town location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is an good, clean, budget hotel situated in a great location if you want to be in Victoria town in the centre of the island. From the hotel one can walk to the bus terminus and travel around easily as all main routes radiate out from Victoria. It is also ideally situated within walking distance of all the central shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. So for those wishing to explore Gozo from a central base, without a vehicle, this place is ideal. The hotel has an integral cafe which I have always found to be very friendly and serves good coffees, and light meals.

Have stayed here a few times & this time noticed standards had dropped. There tv in the room is so old & the picture and sound are really bad. The wifi is to slow to work in the room. When I checked in I was told the room had been just cleaned, but everything had a layer of dust on it & the shower gel on the wall of the shower had emptied in to the bath. The shower head is very small with poor flow.
I had dinner one night in the cafe & I after waiting 30 mins was served a 1/2 frozen lasagne, sent it back, 10 mins later still frozen in the middle.
It is good value hotel & the location is very handy, but it's getting very tired now.

We stayed in this Hotel for 2 wks, Sept/Oct 2013. The rooms were clean and towels etc changed frequently. We had a room to the back which was very quiet. It is a 5 min walk to the center of Victoria, has on street parking and is good for buses.There is a small Cafe in the Hotel which was excellent. Joe Muscat, the Manager and his staff ensured we had a very pleasant stay. The Staff we met there were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. As frequent visitors to Gozo we would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel.

This is a budget hotel..it doesn't claim to be anything else.
We arrived at just after 0200 and were expected and shown to our rooms,ours was a countryside view..not too unpleasant ...not graced by luscious gardens ,however it is located on the outskirts of Victoria ,a 2 minute walk away, so it's ideal for the bus station and the few shops.
The rooms were clean tidy and functional and wifi access was no problem either in our rooms or in reception.
The pool is a little gem situated on the roof with some fantastic views especially in the evenings overlooking the citadel.
The staff were friendly enough and breakfast was good,in the evenings it was nice to see the locals eating there always a good sign I think.
Yes it's opposite a sports centre and school but this didn't detract us from a good budget stay centrally located....would stay again .

Room Tip: Ask the staff

Hotel adequate for a short stay in the town. Rooms clean. Breakfast disappointing as ran out of things to eat, and lad was a bit surly. Think overall staff could be a bit more pleasant, didn't seem very friendly. An ok stay if you have to stay inland, overpriced for where it is. Had one meal there in the evening which was ok.. All in all felt quite impersonal.

We stayed at Downtown Hotel for one night. Close to town center and parking is available. Room was clean, however it desperately needs some improvement. A/c makes way too much noise and one of the speakers of the TV was broken. We only had breakfast there but oh boy was it an awful experience. Staff did not look happy, the choice of food available was pathetic. No brown bread, no decaf coffee. If something finished from the hot food station, it was up to the guests to point it to the servers. Overall, we really didn't feel it was value for money.

Stayed here as part of an Explore package tour. Clean but nothing special. Room 309 and many others at the back suffer from noise all night from exhaust ducts from the ground floor functions areas. Our view was to litter strewn vacant allotment and a concrete wall. Close to town center.

Room Tip: A front street facing room on a higher floor might be quiter
