“Hotel with a view”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The hotel is basic as stated elsewhere but this compensated by the price, location and cleanliness. We paid slightly extra for a view and got a room with a balcony aswell looking over the Grand Harbour. Probably the best view I have had from a hotel. THe biggest negative was the bathroom which was small and had damp patches on the ceiling however it was clean. The hotel does need modernising. Overall an OK hotel which was comfortable and had great views and in a good location.

I'm not sure this hotel merits a VERY GOOD , but it certainly has an EXCELLENT view of the harbour... Indeed , you could spend MUCH more and get far less in that regard.. It's true that the rooms are quite basic ... but they are clean and comfortable..Your best bet is to fork out the a little extra for the water view... Not much point in staying here if you don't.. David at the front desk was very helpful and friendly and booked us a good table at a very good restaurant. In the evenings its nice to sit on the terrace above the restaurant and enjoy a cold beer..It appears that they have recently installed sattlelite tvs in the rooms so its always nice to get some news in English..the Sicila bar and restaurant around the corner has very good pasta dishes!

Room Tip: Sea view!!

Hotel is basic, but it is very clean, and staff are very helpful. Hotel is in a great location it is in walking distance of most of the sights in Valetta and the bus station. View from the dining room over grand harbour is out of this world.

Room Tip: Try to book a room which overlooks the grand harbour

The room was very clean and the staff very helpful and it is in central Valletta. However, this hotel (and the rooms) is a bit dusty and would deserve a refurbishment. The furniture (very basic) is also a bit old, whilst the bathroom was very basic. On the positive side: nice views on the harbour.

We stayed here for one night while in transit to Gozo. The view of the Grand Harbour and its proximity to several key Valletta sites makes it very good value for money. Sure it's old and not state of the art by any means, but everything worked, the facilities were more than adequate, and the staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. It would represent excellent value for longer stays as it is close to major transport routes, the neighbourhood reeks of old world charm, and there is plenty to explore or just sit on the balcony and watch the activity on the harbour. Good cheap meals can be had in the surrounding streets. Wireless internet was easy and reliable, and considering it's Valletta, the area is remarkably quiet. Much better area than Sliema for example.

Room Tip: Make sure you get harbour view. Second floor is fine, cant comment on others.

I stayed here with university on fieldtrip. The hotel is not the most modern but it was spotlessly clean and in a truly priceless location. I lost my phone whilst in Malta and the staff in the hotel could not have done anymore to help me try and find it. I would stay here again in a heart beat!
