It was our first ever trip to Malta,and won't be our last due to the friendliness and hospitality of the Maltese.We booked The Argento because of it's glowing trip advisor reviews,and were not disappointed.The staff are a credit to their hotel-helpful and courteous,and they appear to enjoy their job despite the long hours some of them put in.
A special shout out for the housekeeping staff as the place really is kept so spotlessly clean you could eat your food off the floor...if you so wished!
Would definitely recommend the location if you want to be somewhere central to exploring Malta,and being close to the action.We hired a car,but be warned it can be problematic and timeconsuming seeking an available space to squeeze into(but we always managed somehow.)
Our rooms were large,spacious and airy,and we slept like babies in extremely comfortable beds,followed by a hearty breakfast(All Hail to the omelette Kings behind the counter)to set us up for a day's exploring.
The only very minor quibbles we had were the views out the room balconies overlooked a kind of uncared-for- looking mish-mash of buildings(that we affectionately nicknamed Gaza Strip)-but the quality of the room made up for this.
Also we'd opted for evening meals(which were generally good and tasty,-the slow-cooked lamb in red wine was to die for)but found the dining-room lacked somewhat in soul,ambience and atmosphere in the later hours-but we're sure that can be worked upon.The charming staff made up for what was lacking anyway.
Many thanks too for the lovely card and the bottle of sparkling wine in a bucket of ice that was given to my sister and her hubby on their pearl anniversary- very much appreciated!
All in all a memorable holiday and we'll definitely return.The weather may have been coolish and inclement,but the warmth of the Maltese people is really what sticks with us.
