Reviewed June 5, 2011

Stayed here for 6 nights which i booked through late rooms for 330 euros.Hotel is about 20 minutes by taxi from the airport and costs 20 euro which tou pay before getting into the taxi after you come out through customs. We arrived 1 hour early for our reservation check in time so we had a bite to eat untill we were ready to check us in. Upon checkin they upgraded us free of charge.The rooms are quite nice with safes, iron ,tv, and kitchenette which are in the upgrades but not in the basic. The balconys are quite small though.On the roof where the outdoor pool and bar/ restaurant are ,theres beautifull views over the whole bay .The hotel has it own restaurant attached where i had deserts, sandwichs a couple of time really cheap aswell. Price of beer generally cheap approx 2-3 euro pint depending on what your having compared to 5 euro if your staying in the 5 star places where are friends where staying plus the accomodation was triple the price.Only drawback i would have is the lifts are a bit tempremental for example if your staying on the 6th floor it might stop on every floor before youy reach reception even though nobody has pressed the buttons.The indoor pool + jacuzzi are quite nice but were not always heated. Either way the hotel is very centrally located approx 5-10 minute walk down into St Julians bay where all the clubs are alternatively a bus from outside the hotel for 50cents will you get to most areas of the island.Overall i would come back to this hotel again because its in my price range, hotel staff are friendy and the hotel rooms are what you would expect for a 3 star hotel

We checked into the Plaza Hotel on 24/05/11 -31/05/2011. I was a bit worried having read the reviews, but i thought if they put us in a bad room i will just ask if they have any upgrades. However we were in room 430 on the fourth floor, it was all updated a new bathroom, and shower, we also had a hairdryer in the bathroom. We took a kettle as we booked half board, and was not sure of tea making facilities, but we had a kettle in the room cups,milk, tea & coffee. and a fridge. The rooms were cleaned every day and the towels changed. We had a large plazma tv on the wall. (but we did not use it, but it did work.) Air condition, our room was on the side over Cara`s Cafe, but we could also look at the sea. The Breakfast was good somthing for everyone, the evening meal was a bit bland the Beef was nice and my Daughter enjoyed the Rabbit, my Daughter enjoyed the Gateau`s and the Ice Cream was nice, they always have salad nice choice of Bread and Fruit. Cara`s Cafe is for Chocoholics, the hot Chocolate is just like a melted Chocolate Bar realy thick. The Cafe over road Pepe`s dose a realy good home made Burger we only normaly eat Burgers we make ourselves and not very often, but as we passed we saw people with them and they were good. The young man over the road from the hotel selling Trips for the Hop On Hop Off Bus is called Darryl from Burnley he has been in Malta for 11yrs and is very Helpful, you also get a free Harbour Trip and if you say "Okey Cokey" you will get a bigger Discount. We did the Harbour Trip on our last day and realy enjoyed it. The only down side is ARIVA will be doing the Busses from September so no more Yellow Busses. We would Definitely stay at the Plaza again, as it was so hot we were swimming in the Roof Top Pool at 6pm. it was Great.

Room Tip: Smile be polite say Please & Thank You

We stayed in Plaza Hotel with the restaurant - the sister hotel the other side didn't seem to have been refurbished yet. Our room was modern, clean and spacious and everything looked brand new. We had plenty of room with 3 single beds but no balcony. Make sure you request a balcony. Lovely sea view but very noisy from the road at night. The doors cut out the noise but room was stuffy with doors shut. Air con worked well but I like fresh air. Not noisy with people coming in late at night but from boy racers revving up and down the road and the sound of bottles being emptied by the hundreds into a skip each night.

Food in hotel was good and plentiful - not chips every night, always a fish and pasta dish along with 3 choices of meat dishes.

Rooftop pool small but adequate and there were always sun loungers available, not crowded when we were there late May.

For the price we paid - an excellent deal.

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony.

Malta is always marvellous in the spring, and this hotel added to my pleasure. I had a room on the second floor of the hotel on the right hand side block (from the road) My room was a double, (useful for spreading things out) and looked out over the sea. The buses run regularly from the stop in front of the hotel, and every two numbered bus will take you to the central bus hub at Valletta. My room had an en-suite bath and shower, and it was all cleaned daily. The breakfast was very good, (6th floor across the bridge) and taking a Maltese friend there for an evening meal, she told me that she would put it on her list, and would come again. The rooftop sun terrace has a swimming pool, but this would be open again in the summer. There is a swimming pool in the basement.
The staff were all friendly and helpful without exception.

Room Tip: Book with Cassar and Cooper. Maltese travel agent.

Just back from this hotel, had a room overlooking the bay in the Plaza side of hotel and must admit the room was lovely.Very clean and maid service everyday we were there.You get some noise from the road right outside but not enough to cause any problems.Only down side we found was the lack of friendliness from the staff.No smiles or greetings it was as if you were an inconvenience to them especially in the dining hall.

Stayed in Plaza Hotel ( left hand one when looking at both hotels from front of buildings....they are joined by a enclosed bridge corridor on 6th floor).
Room was on 2nd floor at rear of building with no balcony and not much of a view. It did get morning sunlight. The room had been modernised recently and I did note other modernisation works were being undertaken on other floors whilst I was there.
Room was comfortable , meals were good but not great, atmosphere in common areas was pleasant, indoor pool is small but very warm and welcoming. Bar area is on small side.
Lots of bars and restaurants locally and bus stop also handy.
Understand that room sizes vary and at least one room ( on each floor??) has no external window, overlooking an internal service well, so be forwarned.
