The thing about Malta is - it's a small arid island far from mainland Europe and consequently Hotel fabric, equipment and furniture doesn't come cheap to them. So don't look for middle range Hotels that are shiny and newly appointed unless you spend a fair amount on your room. In my experience knock a star off the rating you are used to. Having said that I booked a bog standard room on B&B basis with Thomas Cook and was pleasantly surprised. Sure it was at the rear with views over rooftops but it was big, airy and fairly well appointed with a working fan and the rest. Furnishing style was dated but storage space massive.TV was a real museum piece and reluctant to work. Only needed cos the Ash Clouds news was of interest! Reception sent a guy a couple of times but it remained temperamental.
The Hotel is impersonal and the lifts a nightmare but staff were lovely and tried hard to keep the place running. The breakfast was ample and edible. Didn't try the bars or other facilities as we like to get out and about in the evening. The location facing the strand and sea is great ,with access to buses and Sliema's bars, shops and the Ferry to Valetta and boat trips. Touts were in evidence but not a pain. Building work is in progress everywhere including the Hotel but not intrusive
Providing you don't have aspirations for luxury you will get on fine and it's a great base for exploring Malta..
