We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Victoria Hotel in Sliema after a great stay at the Grand Hotel on Gozo when we arrived we had to wait two and a half hours for are room as it was not ready we were allocated room 524 the smallest room i have ever seen and the out look was terrible we over looked the hospital and looking at people in there bed with drips going into them that is not are idea of a good view even if the hotel staff think it is which they openly told us they thought it was the bathroom was dirty with mould round the washbasin and the bath the towels were like paper very thin the toilet seat was broken after complaining it was still broken when we left the room wanted a coat off paint as the walls were marked and chipped the balcony was so small you could just about get a chair on it the air con worked through the day when you are not in your room but at night it pumped out hot air when we complained we were told to open the door then all you could hear was the air con from every ware else plus all the car noise the hotel had no bar open or snacks available till 5pm we were told you have to use the Palace Hotel next door if you wanted a drink or a snack which is owned by the same group also you had to use there swimming pool that became a complete wast of time two hotels about 300 rooms trying to use one swimming pool 10ft by 20ft you may as well stay in the Palace it is a fare better hotel then there was the food were breakfast was just about passable if you liked scrambled egg running in water cold fried eggs bacon running in grease but the fruit and bread were edible the food at night was not to bad if you did not mined people dipping there fingers in the self service food trays to see what it tasted like restaurant staff were the most unhappy bunch i have ever seen in a hotel then the bar 2 coffees and 2 whiskeys on Gozo were 6.95e in the Victoria were 14.35e they even claimed coffee was hot food so they could claim vat on it

On arrival we were allocated room 713, we had to request a move the following day as the air-con was not working. Once this was resolved the rest of our stay was very pleasant.

I spent five nights at the Victoria while travelling alone to Malta. The location is brilliant, five minutes by foot from the ferry to Valletta and 10 minutes by foot to St. Juliens and its myriad of restaurants.

The hotel itself could not be a four star anywhere else. Do not be fooled by the star rating: the decor and the rooms are three star at best. Mine looked like it had been locked in 1970 and never opened again. A time capsule.

I had a very disappointing experience on my first night when the aircon was not working and the bed sheets smelled strongly of hospital desinfectant . This was supposed to be a 'superior room'. It really felt like a hot, smelly retirement house room. A note and a tip to the room attendant magically fixed these problems as the bedlinen was thoroughly replaced and upon my return the room was at a pleasurable 13 degrees (I'm not kidding).

The rest of the hotel is very much along these lines: an old, tired property which I am sure was a jewel back in the days of the British Empire. Reception was lucklustre. Luckily, guests can use the adjacent Palace Hotel's rooftop swimming pool and restaurant - which makes things much better. The view from the roof is simply amazing.

If you are not going to spend a lot of time in your room, I recommend staying at the Victoria. The price is quite good for this kind of location.

Avoid the 7th floor at all cost!!! Allocated room 713 on a late arrival. Not a superior room nor a balcony as booked, 50% electrics not working and no air conditioning. Could not sleep at all - I recorded 32 degrees at 3.00 am. Advised to leave windows open all night. Dustbin lorries at 5.00 am hardly kept us awake as we could not sleep for the heat. We were asked to leave our luggage unpacked next day so had no option but to sightsee all day. Allocated room 726 on our return. This had air conditioning and a balcony but was a very tired room and worst still it was situated under the rooftop pool with very noisy pumps operating between 07.30 and 23.00. Midweek found a cockroach in a suitcase and later one (possibly the same) in the void above the bathroom. On the positive side the staff are really attentive, the breakfast is more than adequate and the evening dinner alternated between good and excellent. We spoke to other returning guests who thought the hotel was excellent - but they were not on our floor!!

We stayed two nights at The Victoria Hotel in Sliema. The first night we came in very early in the morning (2:00am). We were picked up from the hotel by a taxi I had arranged with the hotel. The hotel staff are very pleasant and helpful.

The room was spacious and modern. The bed was nice and big and very comfortable. The air conditioner could not be set to be very cold, but it was comfortable for us. It was a little noisy, but we got used to it and still had a good night's sleep.

We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as it's quite pricey (11 euros pp), but there are many cafes near the hotel.

The location of the hotel is great. Within walking distance to the bay in Sliema and great location to catch the buses around the island and to the ferry.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and highly receommend it for anyone wishing to have a comfortable stay in Sliema, Malta.
