3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

this hotel offered no wifi, only breakfast was included, staff of the restaurant are rude and will get furious if you do something different, like sit at a lunch's table, at dinner they are also rude, they will let you begin eating and then come ask you to sign right away, you cannot wait until you eat, this is done with many people. the dinner is a rip off, microwave junk food for poor pensioners who do not know where else to trust and eat. definetly avoid eating in their restau.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

This was our second stay in plaza /regency .We were a bit worried to be placed in the hotel behind the pizza restaurant, but we had paid for a superior room and were allocated a re furbished room complete with sofa ,kettle and fridge at no extra charge .The view was a little restricted by the trees opposite but unless you want to spend your holiday in your room Malta has plenty to see.The breakfast was good plenty of cereals, both continental and full English available as well as unlimited tea coffee and juice .We stayed on bed and breakfast basis and there are a variety of good restaurants within walking distance,peppi`s and fresco directly opposite and if you turn left and walk for 10 mins would highly recommend Bocconcino`s great food and atmosphere .There was plenty of space around the pool to relax after a day sight seeing and we found all of the staff within the hotel friendly and approachable especially those at the roof bar. The room was cleaned everyday to a high standard with tea and coffee replenished as required.
We are going back to Malta in 2014 as we love it and will be booking here again.

Room Tip: Well worth paying for superior sea view room to guarantee a fab room

Nothing flash about this hotel although the location (if you like being in the highrise part of Malta) means that it's easy to go for a swim. The rooms are ordinary and if you need a fridge to keep your drinks cold, then you have to hire it if you're in the hotel part of the arrangement. However, friends who ended up in the other building had an apartment with not only a fridge but a dining table and chairs and a microwave so make sure you know which part of the building you're going to be in.

I I wanted-a good holiday so paid for an upgraided sea view room,which i got-no complaints about the room.
The complaints start from arrival, after lugging our cases from the front pavement up aflight of stairs as they dont have a porter we were told that we were in the wrong part and needed to take our luggage next door -you guessed it- lug it downstairs cross the road and up another set of stairs, not easy when your disabled
The food was very poor, the breakfast was the same every day, i asked the head waiter if there was any chance of tinned tomatoes or grilled-he laughed and as he walked away he said and maybe mushrooms too eh
The evening meals were dire, by the third week we couldnt face them anymore and started eating out

We arrived on the 12th November 2013 and were allocated room 528, in the bathroom the shower was hanging off the wall, there was patches of mould on the ceiling and in the shower area. The television wiring was dangling freely and joined together with electrical tape. The bed linen was had dirty marks which we presumed were from the previous occupation. The room bore no resemblence to the pics of the hotel web site. The receptionist informed us that it was our responsibility to tell the hotel of short comings and they would then act, on questioned as to why the room was in use in this condition we were met with a shrug of the shoulders. However we were then moved to room 621 which was bright, airy, well appointed, clean and more in keeping with the pics on the web site. From then on our stay was very enjoyable and the staff in general were helpful and cheery.

Room Tip: Ensure that you are allocated one this hotels good room and not the ones due for refurbishment.

We were a bit nervous and unsure of what we would find upon arrival after reading some of these reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. Mind you, we are not all that picky but the basics were all there. Clean towels every day, beds made and nice staff. There was one housekeeper who was especially chipper and whole-heartedly greeted us whenever we saw her. The location was perfect, we could walk to the jetty in no time and a only 10-15 minute walk to the more upscale shops and restaurants. But we found this by accident so I would ask hotel reception how to get there. The bus stop is 2 minutes from the front of the hotel making it very easy to do hop-on hop-off tours and catching the X2 for the airport. So overall, not the classiest but if you plan on doing things rather than staying in a hotel room the whole trip, I would recommend this hotel.

Some tips for the bus: allow yourself plenty of time when taking the X2, like an hour. The bus did not look like the others, more like a tour bus, but a local was nice enough to point it out to us. Like most have said, it doesn't come on time but it's every 15 minutes if I remember correctly, so who really cares. Also, it's free.
Also, not all hop-on hop-off tours are created equal. The first time, we chose Malta sightseeing. Great commentary and went to all the places I wanted to see. The second time we chose City Sightseeing for the South tour. Less commentary, less interesting, and fewer stops. Go with Malta Sightseeing.

we stayed in the plaza side of the hotel on the 7th floor. on arrival were made very welcome by the night receptionist. who made us feel very at home. we stayed for a week and have booked up to come back again next august. we are bringing our parents with us this time. this will be their first time in malta. we have said how friendly the maltese people are. i cannot wait to come back again this will be our third time in malta and the second time at the plaza. i thoroughly enjoyed all of the meals at the hotel. i would like to express my gratitude to both the head chef and the executive chef who made our time here so pleasant. i look forward to seeing them both again next year 29th august 2014. our original trip to malta was not for holiday but bereavement of sister in law who died in malta. very special place for us to come.

Room Tip: got no tips for travellers we stayed on side of hotel but did not care
