Fantastic Hotel

Review of Hotel Valentina
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Nov 10, 2021via mobile
One of the nicest hotels we've stayed in, the room was spotless and the staff were amongst the friendliest and most helpful I've met. The hotel is situated very close to the centre of St Julians with all the lovely restaurants and a vibrant nightlife. Our only regret was that the rooftop bar was closed, it looked like an amazing place for a relaxing drink. We've already decided that we're going back, just have to pick the right time.

Don’t let the fancy pictures suck you in. We chose this hotel because the pictures advertising the hotel showed a fancy rooftop pool whereas in reality when we arrived we found out that the hotel isn’t open half the year. Bitterly disappointed as this was the selling point and we wouldn’t have chosen this hotel otherwise.

Dear mitchellthomas,

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to read that we have fallen short of your expectations.

It is our aim to ensure all expectations are met and exceeded- with this in mind we make certain that any information pertaining to the hotel’s facilities and services is made available on our website so that guests know exactly what to expect at reservation stage. We are deeply saddened of your comment mentioning ‘false advertisement’, as this most definitely is not the case. Our website clearly states that the rooftop pool is open between March and October, weather permitting, (https://www.hotelvalentina.com/facilities/rooftop-pool-and-bar/).

We do hope to regain your trust and have the pleasure to welcome you back to the Valentina in the summer months, and get to experience the rooftop pool. If you do decide to return, please contact me directly at lara@hotelvalentina.com and it would be my pleasure to personally make all the arrangements for you and ensure you have a memorable stay.

Kind regards,

Lara Camilleri

I was welcomed at this hotel and had a very clean modern room with a fabulous shower. The pool was not in use and therefore looked very different to the website. The views from this vantage point were other buildings which is fair enough for where it is placed. I was visiting end of season and there was no holiday buzz in this accommodation. Bus stop and the beautiful sites of Malta are very central to this hotel. For the price it was very comfortable but for me there was no holiday feel as a view is definitely missing, however within 5 minutes walk the delights of Malta can be embraced.

The hotel is close to paceville but is not impacted by the noise at all. It’s close to Spinola Bay where there are many wonderful restaurants. The hotel is modern, immaculate and the staff are always helpful. The pool on the 8th floor has fantastic views of the sea and St Julian. Highly recommend the hotel for a weekend or week break

Room tip: Book direct if you can as you get a few freebies like a welcome drinks fridge, free one-way transfer and discounts at their local restaurant

Lovely hotel in a good location. An airport transfer on arrival was arranged for me as part of deal which was a great start. Every single staff member was very professional and friendly. Housekeeping kept towels/toilet roll constantly refreshed. Rooftop pool was cool and plenty of sunbeds available. An area with Apple Macs available if you need to work and good wifi throughout building/in room. Overall, a great experience.

What a wonderful hotel. Would have given it 5 stars however the lady who was behind the desk “Lisa” was quite rude and not helpful on check in.
We arrived at the hotel before check in had opened in a cab from the airport that was organised by the hotel-great! Once we arrived we were given access to the pool until check in was available.
We decided to come down a little earlier and just wait in the lobby in case the room was ready sooner… no such luck but we did watch Lisa check in about 3 couples before us… she could have let us know she was checking people in.
Other than that the stay was easily 5 stars. Nemanja who checked us in was wonderful-helpful, funny and polite. Room service was excellent-great good from their restaurant and you get a discount on it!
Breakfast was brilliant-lots if options and fresh produce.
The pool might be the best bit-fantastic! As were the staff there, we very happily spent one day of our holiday relaxing by the pool!
Room was very clean and comfy-bed wasn’t quite pushed together but once we sorted that it was great.
Location is great for beaches, bars restaurants and it’s very easy just to order an eCabs from your phone if you want to travel further.
Alesandra at check out was wonderful and all too happy to help.
Overall it was brilliant, will definitely stay here again when back in Malta, just hope we don’t have to deal with Lisa!

Dear I8949RBbaobao,

Thank you for your time to share this review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and I am glad you had an overall enjoyable stay.

I do regret that you were not completely satisfied with the service received, and would appreciate if you could get back to me with more information pertaining to your encounter with our team members at Frontdesk. Please note that we do not have anyone by the name of Lisa working at the Frontdesk, perhaps you could help us identify this person so that we may look into it.

I am glad that this issues did not deter you from having an enjoyable stay with us and we hope to welcome you back on a future visit! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if I can be of assistance in any way.

Kind regards,
