The Waterfront Hotel
Ranked #5 of 28 Hotels in Sliema
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We had a wonderful holiday at this hotel. Staff were very friendly always a greeting what ever time of day. Our room on the third floor was very comfortable and clean. On the wed of our stay we came back to find tea and coffee making facilities had been added to our room. This was an added bonus don't think it had been available before. We had some noise from the road below so if you think this might bother you book a high floor. It is well worth paying the extra for a sea view, you look out over the harbour.
Out and about the tours round the island are very good but you can do it yourself public transport is very cheap. We travelled to the ferry on the 222 bus then caught ferry over to Gozo and enjoyed a day sight seeing there. Bus cost us 3 euro for two and ferry only 4.65 each. The local people are very friendly and love to help. Will visit again.

Room Tip: High room as noise from road.

Our first visit to Malta was a very postive experience. Partly due to a significant contribution of our stay at the Waterfront Hotel ! (15th-22nd April).
Excellent location and surroundings; Views from the balcony; cleaniless and service is extraordinary; friendly staff; good food and service in Regatta Rest. as well in Basilica Rest.

We really enjoyed our stay and we don't have a difficult choice when we visit Malta once more !

We stayed at the waterfront Hotel in Sliema for a week 8th-15th April and we had the best holiday in a long time! Reading other reports on tripadvisor i did feel a little apprehensive about the food but really the food was lovely with lots of choice, the staff in the dining room were also very nice, a special thankyou to anna for providing me with a weather forecast every day.
Our maid did a very good job of our room and I'm only sorry that we did not get to thank her on our last day.
The reception staff were also very good especially Marvic.
We really enjoyed our stay there, our only regret was only having one week instead of two!

The majority of the bedrooms of this hotel face over the waters of the harbour with partial views of the bastions of Valletta. It is only a short walk to the main shopping area of Sliema and there are numerous buses going to various points of the Island. It is quite a modern building but probably needs a refreshing makeover. It is situated alongside the Strand which is a dual carriageway leading to the main part of Sliema. There is some traffic noise but not too excessive and does not disturb when the balcony doors are closed. The bedrooms and the hotel generally are very clean. All of the staff are most helpful and polite. The buffet breakfast is ample but a little chaotic at times around the tea/coffee machines and the one toaster. Having spoken with the management I understand that these small issues are being attended to. There is a medium sized pool on the roof and plenty of sunbeds. The views from this point are extensive. I would not hesitate in staying at this hotel again.
