“Tropical”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Bedroom was average but it did have a mini fridge. Overall the hotel was beautiful and the food was incredible. Nice place to have a drink and relax with a DJ. Staff was friendly and helpful, location was great easy access to bars and shops but on a quiet street so you can have a nice sleep. Great waterfall outside with palm trees.

Room Tip: Great on a budget. Quiet rooms but close to entertainment.

Half-star is too much for this hotel.
Do not have to ask for the soap, you have to p(r)ay for it!
The window does not close to the ground, you are outdoors about 3 cm.
The WiFi does not work. Bed linen was rip.
Very poor breakfast, just one small table with coffee, tea and toast (a type of ham and one of cheese), that’s it.

Room Tip: See something else.

I like to use this place as drinking accommodation.

No frills budget accommodation.

I was expecting a substantial breakfast (not sure why, given the price of the room)

Usual continental food... Just the meat and cheese Is horrible. Apart from that, all was good.

Very good staff. Quiet, clean and tidt basic rooms. Very clean.
Staff very helpful at ALL hours of the day. 24 hour restaurant does NOT be heard in the rooms.
Front rooms get fantastic 24 hour 'people watching' & all the beautiful sights you would expect 500 mtrs from the main square.

Room Tip: As I say, front rooms view all the people and the back room look onto an oasis with a quieter scene...

For the price of the hotel you don't expect much but the price is more than ok for this hotel. You get a basic room and bathroom in a fair size and the room is clean and new towels each day. The room had a small balcony situated to the plaza and that caused some noice during the night because bar is open 24/24. However the windows block a lot of the noice. Airco is free but no WIFI available (fair for the price).

Room Tip: Try to take a room further away from the main part of the plaza

If you are planning on visiting Malta and staying at this hotel, please refrain from doing so immediately! We were shocked by the fact that a few friends who came to visit us at the hotel had to pay almost 17 euro JUST to climb a flight of stairs and stay for a couple of hours! They were not even staying at the hotel!
Moreover, the employees did not offer good service in terms of manners and respect!
Furthermore, the twin rooms were not clean and the bathrooms were too small!
Despite this being a 2 star room, I still expected better, given in the past I have stayed at better B&B's.

If you are going in Malta for Malta and you don't care about the hotel, then you should pick this one! It is a really cheap hotel (32 euros per night, room for 2 with breakfast) and the best location you want to be in Malta - St Julian. Also, the restaurant that is part of it is one of the best rated restaurants in Malta.

The price means that you shouldn't expect much of it - no hairdryer, no shampoo and soaps. Shower was not working properly. Stuff is not much of a friendly type, but I think that is a general rule for the people of Malta.

Beside that, the hotel is really clean - they clean your room every day and they give fresh towels every day. The breakfast is really good. You have a big fridge in your room.

I definitely recommend this hotel.
