Osborne Hotel
Ranked #7 of 15 Hotels in Valletta
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stayed at this ideally situated hotel only one night but were impressed enough to book again for a longer time.
The B&B rate entitles customers to have a 3-course dinner for only €9.90 each. The food was delicious and the staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. The bar is delightful with comfortable armchairs and the air-con helps when you come inside from Malta's sunshine.
On the roof there are sun loungers and a small pool so make sure you take your swimming things.
The Manager, Brian, was friendly and approachable. His mission is to make sure every customer is happy with their stay and he is certainly succeeding.

Room Tip: We had Room 601 with a wonderful view over the rooftops to the little harbour.

I read reviews of this hotel expecting a clean room, good location and not very friendly staff! I agree with location and cleanliness, this hotel is extremely clean. However when it comes to attitude of the staff I totally disagree. They were hospitable, helpful and went above and beyond my expectations. I had a lovely room 601 overlooking the sea and Valletta. beautiful view! Food was excellent quality, but I do agree with past comments, it was overcooked. There's so many restaurant choices in the area it was no big deal! Very close to the bus terminal and the hop on hop off bus. You can see most of the Island by the bus system, the buses are clean. I hated leaving Malta and the friendly people that work at the Osborne. I had a wonderful visit and their hospitality made my vacation that much better.

Room Tip: Sixth floor has incredible views. There's only 3 rooms on the 6th floor. I had 601, very large...

Stayed 3 nights in Osborne 20th to 22 Sept 2013 and was very pleased with the location. Just a few minutes walk to Republic Street, major sites and also the the ferry to Silema and Gozo and nice restaurants nearby. Hotel was very clean and newly renovated. Charlie who was at the recption desk was helpful with lots of information about everything you want to know. He spoke with such enthuasiam like the was the Owner....Valetta is a lovely place to visit in Malta and why not make your stay memorable as I highly recommend this inexpensive, friendly, clean hotel with excellent location, we will definitely stay there when we return to Valetta. Thanks Charlie, you were off on the weekend and we never had the chance to say thank you.

Room Tip: Newly renovated, any room would be great. All rooms have wifi access which is so important these da...

This met my needs in most aspects. The one drawback was the pokey bathroom and shower. The room was smallish but well appointed (other than the bathroom). I arrived with a damaged leg and arranged a chauffuered tour to see what I could in a day. Breakfast was so-so. There was a nice bar with a friendly crowd and good, reasonably priced coffee and digestives and spirits. Staff were helpful and friendly.

After many visits to Malta and Valletta, I rediscovered the beautifully renovated OSBOURNE.
A Small period hotel in a prime position in the centre of Valletta. Amazing rooftop views of city and sea. Spotlessly clean. Good simple cooking. Well trained staff. Well worth the 3star rating.

Room Tip: Higher floor best views

It was not our first stay at the Osborne and it won't be our last ! The hotel staff (each and every one of them) are friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms are very clean and have all the amenities a traveller would want. Our only criticism is the evening meal. Whilst very competetively priced, small tweaks such as hot plates for the main course and vegetables which were not over-cooked would make this a superb dining option. Overall, we love this hotel; it is well placed for the environs of Valletta which in itself is more than worthy of a visit. We will be back !

We stayed in the Osborne hotel in late Sep 2013 for our honeymoon for 4 days. Staff were very helpful, honest and efficient (especially Ronald and the chef from Huddersfield), Eclectic but fancy decorations and furniture, good proportioned room with a wonderful art-sy design. So clean and fresh. The food was really fantanstic, morning and night, and really cheap for the quality and quantity. We enjoyed the mini swimming pool to cool down after long days walking around.

So refreshing to get away from tick box cultures. The beds were also super comfy!!

Room Tip: 210- didn't have a view, but very nicely decorated throughout, quiet, easy to get to (lifts avai...
