Damiani Hotel
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Best hotel we have stayed at in Malta so far out of 3. Very clean, staff very polite and helpful, really close to bars and restaurants. only 2 little gripes, very uncomfortable sun beds and small bath / shower. We will definitely stay in this hotel again. Great breakfast at Splash bar opposite hotel.

Good location for buses, food shops, sea and centre. Ask staff for advice on avoiding any potentially overcrowded "full" buses. Well managed... friendly , clean etc. Wifi was fine for most of the time.

Just returned from a 10 day stay at this hotel. As a lot of other reviews have pointed out this place is a clean, friendly place to stay. We travelled with our son (10 year old). Accommodation is very clean and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The Splash indeed provide a very good breakfast, or for a lovely Italian meal try The Village Gossip - just on the edge of the square or head to Il-Gzejjer - restaurant opposite the jetty where the boat trips leave from. The 5D experience in Valletta good fun. We hired a car and found it very convenient to get around all the tourist sites and to visit other towns, the buses can get very busy and hot.

Basic clean and tidy, staff very friendly no issues with this hotel enjoyed my 7 days stay here would definitely stay here again. Good location five minutes walk from square, good eating place is the bucanneer. Only downside you had to pay 8 euros per night for airconditioning for the room.

My wife and I have just come back from an enjoyable week in Malta staying at the Damiani Hotel and Studios.
The accommodation, although basic and not on the seafront, was fine, a reasonably sized studio with minimal cooking facilities but with a decent sized fridge and kettle, (perfectly adequate as we ate out each evening) and a small balcony. Our studio was on the 5th floor overlooking the front of the hotel (room 52), we had emailed ahead to request a room at the front and that was provided.
Everyone was friendly and the room was cleaned very well daily.
The hotel is just 5-10 minutes walk to the square and sea front where there are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants to choose from, most enjoyable meal was at the Bugies restaurant 100 metres up from the square, 3 courses plus tea or coffee for 12.95 euros.
Buses were good to get around the island 2.65 euros for the day or 12 euros for a weekly ticket, we did find you had to go down to the bus station first to guarantee a place on the bus as once they are full they don't stop.
All in all we would recommend the hotel for its cleanliness, friendliness and accessibility to restaurants and seafront.

Room Tip: High floor at the front for distant sea view and some sunshine on the balcony

Hotel was terrible. The room we were given on arrival was appalling. The balcony looked out on to a slum and the hotel didn't bother to tell us when we book about the construction work on going during our stay. There was no water pressure in the shower and the facilities were poor. After three nights we were moved to the front side of the hotel and the shower was slightly better. The self catering equipment was sub standard and there was one fork in the room. The chamber maids would only clean rooms when it suited them and not working around the needs of customers. The staff on reception were nice and helpful enough but I felt embarrassed for them as we heard loads of complaints from other guests. How this hotel has received positive reviews is beyond comprehension. It is a very poor hotel in a dirty and dingy location. This was a one star hotel at best, one o the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. We booked this hotel on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews which are blatantly false and will never again use trip advisor as the basis for a holiday booking. Too easy it would seem to manipulate.

I booked this on line and was pleased with the choice once I arrived. The apartment was clean and modern and had all the facilities that i would need. The staff were all helpful and friendly and this is a well situated hotel and good value for the price.
