The hotel apparently used to be called The President but has been completely refurbished. The overall effect is now very clean but almost clinical, with no planting. It's conveniently located up a side street from the local bus stop and close to corner shops and restaurants. Both St. George's and St.Julian's bays are within easy walking distance. All the staff we encountered were polite and friendly. Your view will depend on where your room is, obviously - in 402 we could see interesting back yards with a view of the sea if you poked your head round the corner. We enjoyed watching the cats playing in the gardens below.
In the bathroom it looked as though the management have taken some comments to heart so there is a high-level position (but not adjustable) for the shower head and certainly better water pressure than in some 4-star hotels I've stayed in in Wales. The toiletries were basic and the towels a little hard.
In the room air conditioning could not be set lower than 77F, which I guess is fair enough. There is a small fridge that can be stocked for a price or used to store your own chilled beverage, and it seems the tea/coffee is also a meant to be a chargeable option, but we weren't charged. Television choice was severely limited. The free wifi worked OK with the Blackberry and Kindle, and there is free Internet access in the lobby. There was a hair drier in our room and a safe in the wardrobe. When the battery on the TV remote died the manager was up in a couple of minutes to sort it out. There were 3 pillows for 2 beds - we should have asked for another.
Breakfast offered a range of hot and cold food, with fruit, cereals, dried fruit, mini Danish pastries, different types of bread/toast, cold meats and cheese, chilled fruit juices and mineral water; a fried option (omelette/fried egg/bacon, but not necessarily all on the same day); an espresso machine (does cappucino and latte) and a hot beverage machine.
The swimming pool is on the roof and up some steps - take care. Large enough to cool off in, but the surrounding area is a little cramped with sun loungers so not that suitable for kids to run around in unsupervised. Outside the pool area, the roof is decked and provided with umbrellas, showers and sun loungers, with toilets and snack and drink vending machines in the lift lobby area. We found it a decent place to relax and read but a bit sterile. The roof is also visited from time to time by the staff to see if anyone would like something from room service.

We stayed at the Argento Hotel in September, and I very much enjoeyed my time there.
The hotel is a recent build, hence the room was immaculate and very well furnished. The service from staff was very good, and they always came to the rescue when pressed up for information. The view we had from the room was very poor, but this is not fault of the hotels, rather then poor building planning in Malta.

We were only ever able to make one morning breakfast, which we found to be very poor due to a lack of variety. What was on offer was good nonetheless.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again if ever in Malta again, and would gladly recommend to other travellers headed to Malta.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this recently renewed hotel. The staff is very nice and helpful, tasty breakfast and I especially love the cosy downstairs area where you can watch TV or read the newspapers on a cosy sofa, the lovely decor in the rooms, very comfy beds and the pool area is so relaxing, complete with modern showers. The view is breathtaking, overlooking the bay of St. Julian's. It is perfect for business people and anybody else looking for a quiet place, but close enough to the boulevard, endless restaurants and bars and nightclubs (especially handy if you have teenage kids). You can have a lovely walk along the boulevard, take a romantic trip on a luzzu ...etc. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody.

We stayed at the Argento in july and we enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and modern, and the overall impression was great. The hotel pool at the rooftop was nice as well. We found the breakfast a bit poor in variety, but OK. Definitely recommended hotel, especially if you like St Julians.
