The hotel is well located close to shops,restaurants and the bus stop for Valetta and the Ferry Port. We stayed half board in room 3055 which faced onto the street. There was quite a lot of noise from traffic. The uninspiring,unwelcoming reception area is equally matched by some, not all, uninspiring, unwelcoming reception staff. Some are not polite, not concerned and lack motivation.
The room had twin beds,bedside cabinet, wardrobe,mirror,TV
and ceiling fan. The bathroom had bath,shower,mirror,sink,
shaver socket and constant hot water. There was a balcony and 2 chairs. The towels and sheets are changed every day by very pleasant ladies, but they are frayed and worn ( Not the ladies the towels and sheets). There are charges for fridges,kettles etc if not included in your deal. The lift is very small. Just enough room for 2 people and their bags.
Hot/cold buffet breakfast/dinner is served in a pleasant room. The food is plentiful but not exciting. You wont go hungry but maybe
bored by it after a week. You have to ask for ice cream.
The pool has plenty of sun loungers and parasols. These have seen better days but serve their purpose.There is a childrens pool. The main pool is very deep with a few steps into it. There is a snack bar near the pool. There is an indoor pool and fitness room.
There was entertainment each evening. Unfortunately this was different singers doing the same songs for 5 of the evenings!
The hotel is being renovated at the moment. The older rooms look shabby and dated. The newer rooms look of a good standard. There is an issue with the state of the carpets in the hallways and stairs. This will only be cured by removing them. I don't think cleaning is enough.
At the moment the hotel is only 2* at best. It feels shoddy, dated and lacks that little bit of luxury you may want on your hols. Having said that everything worked. ie Shower plenty of hot water, toilet flushed, ceiling fan.
What I find unacceptable is the attitude of some of the staff.
If you get a cheap deal maybe go for it. Based on my experince I wouldn't stay there again.
