“Totally Maltese”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This a good value nice place to stay, it is slightly eccentric in that its got no permanent reception but its really great for exploring Valletta. and if you dont fall in love with Valletta you have no soul !
Some of the negative remarks in other reviews are really a matter of opinion, the staff are very helpful, you have a room phone if you need anything and we loved it.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view, there are stairs but thats Maltese buildings ! Its nicely old with period...

Our room was as small as expected, but fairly clean and in shape! Nice view on the restaurant below and some side view on the harbour. We had breakfast in the main "Luciano" restaurant, English or continental, great and sufficient! Fantastic position to explore Valletta day & night!

Room Tip: Go for a bigger room when staying for more than 2 nights

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful room. We had a lovely view of the Grand Harbour and the area was very central yet very quiet. The room was large and well decorated with a very nice bathroom. The main hotel/breakfast is a very short walk away and we received a very warm welcome and the staff were always very friendly and accommodating.

A charming hotel, with excellent views of the harbour from the room, and close to the centre of Valletta. The check-in, breakfast and arrangements are made at Luciano's restaurant about 3 blocks away. We also ate a number of meals at the restaurant. Luciano was extremely helpful in making our stay very comfortable, arranging transport etc. The room had a double bed, on-suite, air conditioner, TV, wardrobe. A small chest of drawers would have been useful. But it was the morning view of the harbour that was the real highlight.

Room Tip: There are rooms facing the harbour. Ours (332) was on the top floor (stairs) which have a small balc...

Luciano Al Porto Boutique is a very good place to stay. The location and view is faboulous and the quality of the accomodations is very good. Very charming building. But the best is the friendly reception by Luciano and all the staff. They welcomed us from the first minute to depart! Definitly a place to stay.

If you can find this building (it is difficult to access by car and we were dropped with our cases at the top of a flight of over 150 steps), you will then have to ring a number sellotaped to the wall outside as their is no reception and the doors are locked.
You will have to walk up another 89 steps and a steep slope to the cafe where you will have to pay for your rooms in full, in advance. This is also where you have to go for breakfast. If it is raining you get soaked on the way to and from breakfast.
There no facilities and no lift in the building.
The rooms are newly refurbished and clean but there is no drawer space in some rooms and little hanging space.
They are just rooms charging hotel prices.

My boyfriend and I planned our first trip to Malta. We went for a total of 10 days.
Based on reviews and the Lonely Planet guide, we decided to stay 4 days in Valletta, 3 days in Gozo and the last two nights in Mdina.
Luciano al Porto was a great flat. Although we couldn't get the sea view as we wanted we loved the place. On the first night the bar downstairs was having a live jazz night which made it an unforgettable first impression of Malta.
For breakfast you have to walk up a couple of streets (3 mins) to Luciano's restaurant.
If you are going there by car there are places available normally after 12pm on the street below Luciano al Porto. Highly recommend renting a car if you want to have a real Maltese experience and exploring around the islands.

Room Tip: Book in advance. The rooms that overlook Vittoriosa and the harbour would make this a 10/10 place to...
