“Good Budget Hotel”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We stayed in a double room in August 2012 and found it more than adequate for a budget hotel. Bedroom and bathroom were clean, but only provided very basic necessities, I think just a bar of soap. The ceiling fan is nice, but a desk fan that blows directly on you is needed in the summer as it was 110 degrees when I was there! I would suggest not planning on leaving your luggage there before or after you check-in. They do not secure it. We left ours thinking they would put eveyone's in a locked room when they got to it, but we returned 5 hours later and found it sitting in the same spot just in the middle of the reception area where anyone could have taken it. The location is good. Lots of restaurants just outside the hotel, but we liked the area farther up the coast towards st. Julian's. Overall, I would spend a couple nights here again to save on expenses and then move somewhere a little nicer for the rest of the trip.

This place is what nightmares are made of. We went February 2012 and got a sea view complete with the accompanying blast of wind through the french window that wouldn't shut. The old chap on reception came up with a brilliant idea "draw the curtains" but they were threadbare so no use what so ever. there was an oil fired radiator but it was on a timer so you had to get out of bed from under some itchy blankets for extra warmth to keep it on. breakfast was sweaty cheese and a sandwich maker to do toast(dont try it comes out like cardboard) plus was plenty of tea coffee and dilute orange. this was full of backpackers and i would call it a ymca rather than a b&b. No carpets at all in foyer or breakfast/television room seen better dinner halls at school. All in all you get what you pay for try the Park Hotel on Graham St instead better class all round. Disgraceful and we've since found out other hotels use it for overspill if double booked. Avoid at all costs even the mice were jumping on the traps!

Room Tip: no facilities what so ever only plus is sea front

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Europa Hotel. We found the hotel to be perfectly adequate - it is a 2 star hotel and cheap, you get what you pay for! We did pay a little extra, about £20 for the week, to have a room with a balcony and sea view, I think it really is worth paying the extra. Although our room was small, it housed a double bed, wardrobe, desk area with 4 drawers and 2 bedside tables. the balcony looked out across the ocean and there was a table and 2 chairs. The room and bathroom WERE cleaned on a daily basis. The breakfast was a little bit on the poor side, but again it was adequate (although we did oversleep a few times and missed breakfast!).
As for Malta - it was very very hot! We found a fantastic restraunt in St Julians - just turn left out of the hotel and St Julians is about a 20-30 minute stroll along the seafront - Pauls Seabreeze restraunt is really worth a visit, the food is fantastic and good value for money.
Overall, I would stay at Europa Hotel again - like I said it is 2 star and cheap, you get what you pay for and it was value for money.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a balcony and sea view - it is worth it

We were staying in this hotel for 4 days and it was the worst stay ever. The room was so small and dirty... I don't want to mention about the sheets, towels... Horrible.... People if you want to remember Sliema as a nice city, PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE THIS HOTEL. Only one positive thing was staff - really nice and helpfull, everything else - nightmare!

I think this hotel is more an bed and breakfast.The staff is very nice, but the rooms are too small. We did not had a view from our balcony. It was a balcony with a wall from 2 meters, and our view was an other building. The breakfast was very very basic..

I stayed here in April 2012, on a recommendation from a Maltese friend based on its location, but I wish i didn't.
I would never class this as a hotel, it lacks comfort and should only be used by those looking for a cheap bed.
The plus points are the staff who I found very friendly with the exception of one older man who always worked nights. The only other plus si the location, it is in the middle of Sliema and a short walk to the ferry tours and transport to Valletta. It also on the sea front which is well served by buses which can take you pretty much anywhere on the Island.
The bad points are many, my room was int he centre of the hotel so couldn't even tell what the weather was like, there was also an excess of mosquitos whose bodies lay on the floor of my room for the duration of my stay which would give a good indication to the standard fo the cleaning. The bed cover was very dirty, this was not changed in the 7 nights I was there. The room walls were stick thin, so sleep (on the annoyingly springy mattress) is very difficult. Especially on a Friday/Saturday when the bar on the ground floor plays music that vibrates through the hotel till 4am.
The only thing that bumped it to two stars were the staff, if you are staying for a night or two its fine but not for long satys, avoid.
