Ideal location - on the doorstep of the old city and of the terminus for island buses. Staff were confident, polite and helpful. Room comfy, roomy and nice - probably could have had herb tea bags if we had asked. Breakfast buffet good - best hash browns anywhere, bread could be more interesting, skilled egg man, bacon too smoky, fresh fruit not always ripe, a lovely marinated white fish, good cakelets - and more if one asked. Warmed outdoor swimming pool with comfortable sunbathing - perfect in late spring when uncrowded - reached through a pleasant garden stroll. A lovely place to stay.
On the basis that the hotel reads these reports herewith some negatives.
There is no free INTERNET ACCESS - a small and totally unused Business Centre had two enticing screens, but no access without cash. There was free WiFi but I don't carry my electronics abroad. Most inconvenient.
I do not expect religious indoctrination in a 5* hotel. What was both bizarre and worse was that the book in the bedside drawer was New Testament only. Malta may be a last bastion of traditional Roman Catholicism but this is no reason to insult international guests. So Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Agnostics, Atheists, etc can all go hang. My religion and morals are my business, not the hotel's.
I would unquestionably stay here again if in Valletta in future.
