“Great value for money, very friendly helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2011

This is a small family run hotel which is very good value and in a good location. rooms are small and tidy, possibly need a bit of work on the bathroom, but fine for a short stay.
and FREE WI-FI

I stayed here for 2 nights during October.I found the Hotel to be great value.Room was clean ,each with individual safe.Location was good, close to bus route to Valletta.Staff were friendly and Breakfast was fine for the price.
only bad points were that there was a slight musty smell in bathroom.The surrounding area may be a bit noisey if you had a large family.However there was nothing that would prevent me staying there again

We stayed five nights in september-october. There´s nothing to complain about. Very affordable.Good breakfast (not just the continental one with marmelad and white bread). The room was small and simple furnished but clean. Despite windows facing the street we slept well (good blackout curtains). Use earplugs if you are sensitive to noise, specially in the mornings. The staff were helpfully and nice in case we have any questions. The location is very well with many restaurants, pubs, cafés etc just around. We also tried the restaurant downstairs and it´s true - their pizzas are excellent, my husband ate a meatdish, also very well tasting.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 and a half weeks and all I can say is FANTASTIC! The rooms were all you needed, clean, air conditioned. the location is in the heart of Malta, the streets are filled with resturants, nightlife, transport, shopping facilities, beaches. Reception was very very helpful and made you feel so welcome. I needed an extra night before heading to the airport a few days after my stay and they easily booked me a large apartment room even though all the other rooms were booked out for the same smaller room price! Being back in Australia I have been recommending the Rokna to everyone. I will be back!!

We stood there for 2 weeks and everything was fine. The staff is friendly and always ready to help. There is IR Rokna restaurant downstairs - their pizzas are the best we've eaten. WiFi covers all the hotel, free and fast. Rooms are simple furnished but clean and have everything you need for a simple stay.

A St. George's bay sandbeach is 10 min walk, Paceville is 5 min walk, the bus stop is on the nearest road crossing. A large foodstore is on the opposite side of the road.

Don't trust Google Maps as they show the wrong location on the map, Rokna hotel is close to Portomaso tower, on the opposite side of the road.

Room Tip: If you like to spend evenings on the balcony - be sure you've ordered it

The hotel itself is lovely, the staff friendly, the service great, the prices extremely competitive... Unfortunately non of this can compensate for the fact that the hotel is located right next to the city's biggest roundabout in the busy entertainment district. Sleeping on a weekend is quite simply impossibly, even with earplugs - and I'm afraid the opportunity to get some sleep is what I am looking for in a hotel.

Stayed for a week on first floor, hotel is clean and reasonable enough but I couldn't really get excited about it. The room was ok and had a fridge it was basic accommodation. The bathroom was tiny with a large boiler overhanging the small bath. The safe is a small one - not for laptops and the tv was small but did have a few English speaking channels. The hotel doesn't have a bar but you can get a drink from the restaurant downstairs but not ideal. The reception staff were all very friendly. The hotel position is well located near to many bars and restaurants but the big problem we had was the noise, especially weekends, the Maltese youth like driving round St Julians with cars come mobile discos large bore noisy exhausts and noisy motor bikes at 2, 3 and 4 O'clock in the morning they seem intent in keeping everyone awake until the early hours. We took ear plugs and used them every night- they really helped and I recommend that it should be a must for you to take them too.
There's a little bar - the sun in splendour just next but 3 which is well worth a visit, then just a bit further is Cork's Irish bar - a great pub where the food is very good, the best we had ribs, steak and pizza all very good indeed. Portions in all the restaurants are on the large size. Don't bother going to hard rock cafe- not a good experience. St Julians is a great place and a short walk from Sliema or longer walk to Valletta. I would recommend the Rokna except for the noisy location, it's fine if you're fit and young enough to still party to 4 in the morn ! But if you like to sleep then maybe try somewhere else.
