TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 20 hours ago

We had a room on the 10th floor with a balcony on the opposite side to the harbour. In our experience the room was a good size and very comfortable. We also made use of the indoor and outdoor leisure facilities which are modern and spacious. The breakfast service has a wide variety of food options but you need to bear in mind that this is a large hotel and at peak times the room can be extremely busy. We used the restaurant one time in the evening and the food/service were excellent. Although this is a large hotel it is not excessively congested throughout the day. The hotel is well situated for access to Valletta and the main bus station is just a short walk with routes to all of the island's main sightseeing destinations.

I always stay at this hotel on my annual visit to Valletta, and have stayed for 5 or 6 times now. It's very conveniently located within short walk from the beautiful World Heritage city centre (where you can find lots of bars and restaurants) and the bus terminus (from where you can travel everywhere in Malta). It also offers a gorgeous view of the harbour from the sea-view rooms and the restaurants. It's lovely waking up to the view in the morning, but what I love is the sunset over Rabat in the distance. Their outdoor swimming pool and access to the sea look beautiful but unfortunately I've never used them as I always stay there in winter. Another thing I'd like to draw attention is their personalised service despite being a large hotel. This year I stayed on my birthday (which I mentioned when I booked). Not only did I get my favourite sea-view room on the top floor but they also sent a bottle of fizzy rosé in an ice pale, a basket of flowers, and a birthday cards with handwritten messages and names of individual staff. When I came back from dinner at night, I found the bed with petals and swans (see photos)! I highly recommend this hotel to everyone who visits Valletta. (It's true, though, there're steps at the entrance, so contact the hotel in advance if you have a mobility issue.)

We had a nice comfortable, spacious room with a lovely balcony overlooking the harbour. The only problem we experienced was noise in the evening (when we wanted an early night after our journey) from a large tour group in the lobby but the staff closed doors to the bedroom corridors which helped a lot. These doors should be kept closed. Staff very good.Bit of a scrum at breakfast possibly tour groups from cruise ships use the hotel

My wife and I visited the hotel and stayed for 7 nights . Firstly the location - the Hotel is about 15mins walk from Valletta , it is situated down a hill from the centre , so walking to the Hotel is ok but there are many steps to negotiate to get to the Hotel and , of course , walking to the town is uphill . As a tip ask for the Hotel to organise an e - cab , these are golf type buggies and for 7 euros represent good value . The reception is welcoming and efficient we were on level 6 which is ground floor and reception is on same floor . The concierge is also on the same floor and is very helpful , they helped us make restaurant reservations , organise buggies and organise the harbour cruise The main reception / bar area is palatial and the service very friendly , it is possible to get snacks in this area, also in this area are some shops that sell newspapers / stamps / Malta glass etc We also hired a car but the concierge will organise day trips as well Our room overlooked the Harbour and was spacious , with a good en-suite ( the bath was a little small but the shower was good ) The bathroom has a regular supply of towels and toiletries , there is a service during the day ( bed make up etc ) and a turn down service in the evening . There are also tea / coffee making facilities in the room and there is complimentary water in the room which meets the day to day needs The balcony to the room was fine and great for the evening sundowner. Whilst we were the swimming pool restaurant was not open , we had a meal in the main restaurant . This offers a buffet service ( al la carte is also available ) , it is very adequate and clearly you can take as much as you want . We understand that on some nights there are various themes ie Asian theme etc .Service was good and friendly , it was a good experience. The Hotel is very busy and organises many conferences but these do not effect the service to other guests . The breakfast is on a restaurant on the 4th floor and is again a buffet , which is great , we did though notice that on several occasions the waiter service to the table ( for tea / coffee) was not very efficient and on a couple of occasions had to ask several times for tea and coffee. Overall this is a very comfortable Hotel , it is conveniently situated for Valletta , we would definitely return

The Hotel does not fail to impress, from the spectacular and vast bar / lounge area to the friendliness of the staff and the sea views to the large outdoor pool it is a grand hotel. My only minor critisism is that the breakfast croissants were not good, my wife is French so is picky!
