“Not a 4 star hotel”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I was a bit dissapointed when I visited this hotel because I paid more money than I would and in the end I got less than I expected. I visited many 3 star hotels in Europe and they looked exactly the same as this 4 star hotel. It is in an ugly neighbourhood. There is no access for a wheelchair. The staff is not very friendly and their english are not very good. When taking shower a large pool of water was left around the toilet. The view from the windows is bad. Not too much channels on TV. A lot of noise in the night. Breakfast was ok. On the plus side now the location is great and there is great view from the roof of the hotel to Spinola bay.
Some info: Take X2 bus from aiport and get off at San Giljan
Take 12,13,14,15 bus to Valletta

Less than a 5 minute walk to both Spinola bay and the Paceville strip, the location couldn't have been better. The breakfast was outstanding with a good range of hot and cold food and made-to-order eggs and pancakes also available. Overall the service was fantastic and we found the hotel to be a great find for a low-mid range price. The only negative was that we requested a double room and we found that they had only put two single beds next to each other. Apart from that, no complaints and I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

We spent 4 nights here at the end of June and feel confident to recommend it to anyone. The party area of Malta is just minutes away along with a plethora of cafes and restaurants however the hotel is situated at the end of a small street protecting it from noise. The staff is nice, helpful and knowledgable. You can order and prepay for taxis from reception. The breakfast is more than adequate with some of the best hotel coffee you'll ever get. The pool is small but plenty of chairs were always free. In short, it was modern, clean, quiet and perfect for what we wanted.

Room Tip: Choose back side of hotel for extra quietness.

Spent a weeks break away with a friend - the hotel were great and put us in adjoining rooms on the 2nd floor - the room was superb! spacious clean light and had everything needed. Good wardrobe space -plenty of room for shoes ( as i always take too many!!) safe included along with tea and coffee making facilities which were always topped up. Lovely pool, nice bar and relaxed area with very comfy seats! Staff are great - very knowledgeable, happy to help and really friendly. Breakfast was good - varieties differed slightly daily but plenty of choice. Location really good, easy walking distance to spinola bay and all the bars and restaurants, and also portomaso marina and paceville, as well as all the bus routes to almost everywhere on the island. Would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it - fab hotel, fab staff and overall a really fab break in the sun. Malta is a beautiful Island, easy to get around, lovely weather and real good VFM!

Room Tip: we had rooms 202 and 203 - really nice and peaceful part of hotel - would highly recommend this hote...

I recently got married in Malta and we stayed at the Argento along with a number of guests. The staff are fab, the rooms are spacious, clean and we look forward to going back.
The hotel is located in St.Julians and it's location is very close to Spinola Bay.

Everything from shops, a beach and restaurants is all within a ten minute walk.

Room Tip: I went into a number of different rooms and even the ones that are smaller are more than ample. I th...

St Julian's Bay, or more precisely Spinola Bay, is a nice spot but basically it is a collection of restaurants along the coastal road. There is a handful of restaurants round Spinola Bay itself, and this is 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Walk the other way and you get to Paceville in 5-10 mins, which is young and rowdy, but along the way there are some decent restaurants, a couple of them excellent. The hotel is therefore perfectly located if this is your chosen area. The hotel itself is just off the main road and lovely and peaceful - we were never once woken by any noise. Reception is pleasant and helpful and the bar area is very comfortable for a nightcap when you return to your room at night. I was particularly impressed how reasonable the bar prices were - a large glass of red for €2.50.

Our room was on the fifth floor, a deluxe twin room with two king sized beds and bags of space. We were just one floor down from the rooftop pool area which was very nice.

Breakfast was excellent, with cold and hot buffet, plus a chef every day waiting to make you an omelette or a fried egg to order.

All in all we were delighted with our choice and could not fault anything - highly recommended.
