Let's be clear: this is a 3 star hotel so if you're looking for something a bit more upmarket, then you need to look elsewhere - maybe at the Fortina up the road. We paid a bit extra for a sea view and specified that we wanted two single beds and either the 5th or 6th floor. Our room was 506 and met all our expectations. Facilities were adequate and it was nice to have a kettle with tea and coffee supplied. The bathroom certainly needed updating but it was OK. The cleaners were delightful and friendly and changed the towels and sheets every day (though one towel had a hole in it!) We always take earplugs and certainly used them here due to road noise and some work re-laying pavements. It also helps drown out snoring husband.
Several other contributors have grumbled about the breakfast buffet and I agree it would get monotonous if you stayed longer than a week. However, on some days there was a choice of bacon and baked beans which was a welcome change from the usual ham and cheese. Even that was OK once I figured that the so-called toaster was actually a grilled sandwich maker, so hey cheese and ham toastie for breakfast - fine! The location is just perfect. You can get the open top tourist buses as well as the local buses and the ferry to Valetta just across the road. Nice choice of restaurants within easy walking distance and worth exploring to find the Salusbury Arms pub. Great holiday and I recommend the Marina if you can put up with the lack of 5 star glitz.
