“Horrible location”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Right in the middle of the clubbing area of Malta. Not pleasant late at night. Hotel rooms are a bit tired but quite large. The Club Lounge is good with drinks, afternoon tea and breakfast included in the rate.

considering I am a Priority Member, my welcome to the hotel was VERY cool.. not typical of the chain.
I found the hotel cold & not welcoming, plus VERY annoying disturbances while in my room. First some guys knocked the door asking to be let in to take measurements..??? Second.... someone to check the mini-bar.. ?? Hello.. you do that BEFORE the guest arrives!! AND third.. someone from wherever calls me on the phone.. to ask if everything is OK.... You can put a "Do not disturb" sign on the door.. how the hell do you stop someone from calling other than to rip the phone out of its socket??
As a frequent user of hotels.. if things are NOT OK.. I will let you know PDQ!!

The hotel is very good. The rooms are good and big with shower and bath, and a balcony. Food wasn't consistent some meals were good some less. My balcony looked at a run down building, other rooms had a nice view.
The only problem with the hotel is the location. It is situated in a neighborhood which has little to offer, besides the bar and gents club district.

When booking online I found the website a little confusing which resulted in being offered a room which was totally unsuitable for my friend and me, despite having telephoned prior to arrival. However the Club Lounge Manager, Sonia, made every effort to find an alternative which was a twin bedded room with access to Club International. The staff here were very friendly and went out of their way to help in every way, including very useful tips about public transport.
The hotel is very well equipped to suit everyone's needs. Although I am not a fan of the big hotel, our locations on 14th floor had an air of being 'small and friendly'.
On the down side, the service in the Lobby Bar was less than efficient and other parts of the hotel looked tired but I understand that some renovation is planned.
Overall a very pleasant stay in Malta for a short break.

All Staff were helpful, and for a big hotel (over a 1000 people can be staying) the only real busy time was at breakfast but the wait was worth it as the food selection was excellent. Don't be afraid to ask the staff if you find that anything wrong as it will be soon sorted. The management are in the process of decorating the rooms up to the 10th floor but even so they were not shabby. I would gladly recommend this hotel to friends and family.

This time the review is for my family vacation (comparing to most of single stays for business I have during the year).
We arrived at 6AM with our 2 kids 4 and 1y3m.
The first impression was bit problematic as in the hotel they couldn't find a baby cot, so it took around 1.5 hours to arrange one. I spoke to Client relations later that day about this and the room we asked to change - everything was done in a polite way and they did change the room and took care of transferring our luggage while we were out.

In Fact the hotel itself has very good facilities with two pools, one outside and one inside, great and large fitness center and Spa!
Kids playground is open daily from 8-20, which gives the opportunity spend a while without leaving the hotel.
You actually can have a walk in the gardens inside the hotel and there is nice choice of restaurants to dine. Try the 10th floor the bar/restaurant by the outdoor pool.
Breakfast served daily has large variety of options and I would say it is actually deserves 5*

This is our first time to Malta and I cannot compare to other hotels, but from others I understand that this hotel is one of the best choices in the region.
Regarding the noise outside during the night - you probably need to be very sensitive to hear as the dual balcony doors make the job and inside the room is very quiet. Our second room was in the closest point to the center of the nightlife and still we were not bothered by the noise at all.

As a gesture we received a cakes and drawing book for our kids and wine for us at the last day of our stay, which was very kind and appreciated.

I would definitely go back to this hotel, just hope they bit increase the attention to initial room requirements.
