“Fantastic location, service & great holiday”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for a week in October for a relaxing holiday. St julians is great for sea views, bars and restaurants and the Hilton is in easy walk of everywhere. We stayed in an Exec room (traditional) with access to the exec lounge and I have to say the service in the lounge was amazing. The exec lounge services Tea coffee & soft drinks all day long with afternoon tea and then evening cocktails and canapés (delicious) in the early evening. The lounge staff were fantastic. The decor in some of the areas is a little tired but it kind of adds to the charm & was very clean overall. My only feedback was that they closed the beech pools during our stay & so I would suggest that's put on your website so that guests are not disappointed. But that aside there were still plenty of Sunbeds & and pools to use. Breakfast was fantastic and I'd recommend trying any of the baked goods at either Bfast or afternoon tea. I would recommend this hotel & would stay again

When we arrived we were upgraded to an executive room, which is in the refurbished wing of the hotel. The room was fantastic, with a really modern bathroom.

We didn't eat in the hotel restaurants but had room service one evening which was wheeled in on a table with tablecloth! It was prompt & really tasty.

As the weather wasn't great we spent a lot of time lying around the indoor pool. The sun loungers were really comfortable but with only 15 dotted around they soon went on an afternoon when the weather was cooler. We had 3 treatments in the spa, the treatments themselves were really relaxing but I felt the therapists lacked a little in customer service.

The only gripe I have about the hotel is the fact you have to pay €5 an hour for wifi. Surely a hotel of this standard should offer this for free?

All in all I would return, but make sure I stayed in the refurbished side!

Thank you for your time. It was a pleasure to read that you had a fantastic stay at Hilton Malta We are very glad to note that you appreciated the upgrade given to one of our New Executive Contemporary rooms which all offer a spectacular sea view.

Internet is as yet free in all our public areas but is due for change in the coming months. We do hope that this did not in any way affect the enjoyment of the rest of your stay and we look forward to welcome you back for many more times!

We had taken over a booking from a friend and needed to switch from a twin to double room. The booking agency wouldn't help but the hotel sorted it all out and gave us a beautiful room with a large, modern and stylish bathroom, comfortable seating and a view straight over the sea. All of the staff we encountered, desk, concierge (taking and fetching the car from free parking - a real boon in Malta) and restaurant were exceptionally polite and helpful. Great New Year break.

I stayed here a few days after Christmas for a week with a friend for a last minute holiday. All I can say is the hotel was amazing! The room was very big with a huge bed, couch, tv, desk and a plenty of storage. The bathroom was beautiful and clean. The room had a gorgeous view of the dock area. Although we couldn't swim in the outdoor pool (too cold) we would go for a stroll around it every morning. It was so beautiful. The indoor pool is a good size and has all the usual things, steam room/Sauna.
The staff are fantastic, always welcome you with a smile and more than willing to help. The concierge helped us book a restaurant for new years eve so we didn't even have to worry about it.
We had breakfast included which was well worth it. The buffet was huge and there was everything from fruit to a fry. The omelettes were some of the best I've ever tasted and are made fresh to order. The bar is also gorgeous for a nice cocktail and relaxing evening. Staff again are super attentive and table service is the way to go.
Everything is within walking distance and there are taxi's right outside the door if you ever needed one.
The best part of this hotel however, was the Blue Elephant Restaurant which is on the bottom floor of the hotel. WOW is all I can say. I've eaten a lot of Thai food but nothing as beautiful as this. The service was spectacular and the food was so good we had to go back again. Not to mention the décor. I felt like I was in the middle of Thailand.
Overall this is definitely the one to go for if you go to Malta. They do not hold back on anything and you will not be disappointed. Loved every minute of it.

Very nice hotel with great service and wonderful pool side. Perfect to spend a week in the sun and enjoy some lazy days. The hotel is however getting rather old, request a room in the newer parts, bathrooms in the older part are not that nice. Otherwise, a good hotel.

Whilst thanking you for taking the time to write about our hotel, it would be a great pleasure if you could email me directly so that I would have the opportunity to send you more details on our rooms.

On some occasions, due to the high level of occumpancy in the hotel, we would be able to offer alternative rooms.

We do hope that this issue did not in any way affect your enjoyment of the rest of your stay and that we have provided you with 5 star service as expected.

We stayed at this hotel for a week from Dec. 26th. We had 2 rooms, one for myself and husband and one for our son and his 14 year old son. The hotel is really good, especially as we had booked rooms on the 10th floor with access to the executive long. We enjoyed the afternoon teas, which we had rather than lunch as we had enjoyed our breakfast from the huge selection of foods from the buffet. There is a good selection of restaurants to choose from in the immediate area, but apart from that, there is not a lot to do when the weather is poor, as it was during in our visit. I think that Malta in Dec./Jan. is not really the place to go. We had not expected the weather to be hot but we had not expected so much rain and wind. Not the hotels fault though!

Room Tip: The rooms on the 10th floor are good....very quiet with sea views.

Thank you very much for your time. We are very happy to note that you enjoyed your stay in our hotel.

Unfortunately yes, the weather was very unstable lately and this might have hindered you for experiencing the real Malta and our outdoor areas.

We do hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again i.e. April is a nice time to visit.

Our room, was on the 10th floor and had a sea view. The room was beautiful, with all the necessaries included plus extras! The bathroom is gorgeous and I enjoyed the huge bath immensely! Breakfast was really lovely, though the choice of fruit could perhaps be a little better! Service is fantastic and they are always friendly and helpful! On our first night at the hotel, we went to the Bottega del Vino restaurant which probably had some of the best Italian food I've had in a long time! Although it is pricey, it is totally worth it for the standard you get! It's a really spectacular place!!!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a sea view!
