Everything fine, besides paid wifi. Nowadays, internet is a standard, like warm water or towels. Nice location is a plus.

"Great location"
Great location, good breakfast with plenty of choices. Walk to all the sights in Valletta. Very friendly staff. We had two different rooms. One was small with so-so beds and not good air conditioning on the 5th floor. The other room was on the first floor, roomy, better beds and good AC. Depends on the room choice.

The man at reception when we first arrived could not have done any more for us. He is a credit to the hotel! We stayed on floor 1 and one morning we were woken by the woman receptionist and another member of staff at 6.00am talking(slides like they were shouting) when we went down and asked them to e quiet we found they were literally face to face talking! She didn't apologise just looked and frowned. This was only problem we had whilst here an was glad to see she wasn't on another shift and we were back to the old gentleman receptionist. Very central location with a good selection of breakfast!

"Three nights in Valletta for easy walking tours"
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Osborne. Great location, nice room and better than usual breakfast with fresh fruit salad and a few hot items on the buffet. You can purchase cards and use your own lap top or purchase a password and use their system. We chose the latter and their log-off procedure did not work and therefore we were unable to use remaining purchased time. They refused to address the problem. I recommend buying the more expensive cards or having the desk person log out for you.

"A wonderful experience"
This hotel is the best! We booked 3 nights before checking in, and were lucky to get the one room left. We arrived early and the first thing the staff asked was if they could put our luggage into a locked room until we could check in. They then gave us directions to some wonderful sights within walking distance and made us feel like part of their family. They even made calls for us for information we needed. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We wish we could have stayed longer. The outside of the hotel is quite deceiving, as it looks small. It's elegant and the restaurant has great food.

My room was remodeled and fresh, lots of storage it was a good size for the money. Front desk staff was helpful and nice, housekeeping was excellent. You do have to pay for wifi we bought the 2000 minute package for €15 it was good for 5 days which was how long we stayed. This hotel was a good value even considering this extra charge. However the contracted wifi was not good it dropped in and out could not always even send email we had to work while in Malta so this was inconvient. It was so slow one morning I ran a speed test 2.5 mbps download .25 upload. Fore comparison the wifi at the airport measured 35mbps! Malta has good internet many cafes, public places even to ferry to Gozo all had much faster completely free internet.

"Convenient location"
The hotel is a short walking distance from the main pedestrian streets and is away from the noisier areas. The room was a good size with a good bathroom. A few small maintenance jobs could be done in the room where a couple of drawers were coming apart. The staff were friendly and generally pleasant, however when we asked about making a call to Indonesia the man at reception said the call could be made from the room and it wasn't expensive. A relatively brief call was charged over 40 euro, so I wouldn't place too much confidence in their ability to provide accurate information and would try to get information elsewhere if I stayed there again. For example, one of the people on reception maintained that you only needed to dial the country code to make an international call and 00 wasn't required.

We were there for a minimal amount of time but were impressed by the hotel's cleanliness and the attention to detail. As a renovated old building, there are limits to what can be done to enlarge rooms or washrooms, but if you want an ideal location just inside the remarkable city of Valetta, this is it.

"Could do better!"
Room rather small although that is the building itself. Cold weather meant we needed extra blankets which was a bit of a battle; nobody new where to find them and there were no duvets. No underblanket,which was surprising. Air con/ heater was so noisy it had to be continually switched on and off to maintain temperature. Some staff really helpful but one or two seemed to have no knowledge of the hotel at all! Having said that the restaurant, bar ,lifts,TV ,reception area were all fine and The Osborne is perfectly placed for sightseeing so worth considering,particularly when the renovations are completed.

Great location for exploring Valetta. The Hotel is in a quiet side street but only a few minutes walk from the main streets/ sights. Staff friendly & helpful. Some work going on to update the hotel @ Feb 2015, but not intrusive. Hotel has a nice feel to it - more like a large villa with a nice 'sitting room' inc small bar. Good value - I would recommend.

"Simply a Very Good 3 Star Hotel"
This Hotel is conveniently located near the heart of Valletta; making this a perfect base for a short City break. And there is plenty to do and see. We arrived far too early for our room, but were allowed to check in and leave our luggage at reception. We then acquainted ourselves with the city and had a light lunch. When we returned we were given a simple twin room with a pleasant street view. Comfortable Beds, with Tea/Coffee making Facilities, TV, and an Air Con unit (which would be much needed in the Summer time). The compact Bathroom has a good shower, toilet, wash basin; supplied with more than enough towels, toiletries, mirrors and a hair dryer. The breakfast was included in our package and we found it to be acceptable. A standard Hot and Cold buffet, with plenty of everything and not rationed. The Hot food is kept warm using a bain marie, which we found made the egg products a little rubbery, when we came down latter one morning. We found Ronald on the front desk was a font of information and helpfulness. The only negative experience is the Wi-Fi. Supplied by Ozone and purchased at reception using prepaid cards or online. It was patchy, slow, expensive and cumbersome. (The routers probably could do with regular maintenance to clear out the buffers.) So, we have no problem recommending this hotel to anyone and hope you enjoy it as we have

I could produce better catering. Breakfast not much better. Would not eat here again. But the room was very good with facilities/comfortable.

"Hotel Osborne, Valletta, Malta"
Wanting to stay in central Valletta this hotel was a good price/quality compromise. The location is good on a quiet road near the airport bus stop and a short walk from Valletta's main shopping street. I liked the style of the building and it was nicely decorated inside in a relatively modern and unfussy style. The gentleman who checked me in was informative and friendly. My room was aright, it didn't have a view except into a light well and the sheets, although washed, perhaps were washed in an overloaded machine. The bathroom was pleasent with a good and powerful shower. Breakfast was included in my room rate and again this was alight, perhaps a little 1970's in style, but then, most of the hotel guests were in their prime in the 1970's too, so it was perhaps a well targeted breakfast proposition. Other than the room and breakfast I didn't use any of the hotel's facilities so can't comment on them.

"Disappointing hotel with dreadful food."
I booked a short holiday as a special treat for my husband's 65th birthday and was really disappointed as I was expecting so much better after reading other reviews. When we arrived they couldn't find our booking, and we were left waiting for about 40 minutes while the receptionist tried to find our details, when all we wanted to do was go to our room after travelling all day. If they had apologised just once it would have improved matters, but they didn't and just tried to pass it off as a joke. The room was small and very basic, the bathroom tired looking and with mould growing on the ceiling and chipped tiling. There was also a smell coming from the drains. Downstairs, the lounge was quite pleasant and the bar staff were friendly and helpful by contrast. On our second night we decided to try the hotel resturant. We wondered why it was nearly empty when we had struggled to find a nearby restaurant that wasn't full, but soon realised why this was the case. The food was plentiful and very cheap, but the quality was awful, possibly the worst meal I have ever had, and wasn't able to eat it. The waiting staff did not ask why I had left it uneaten. The following evening we went to the Phoenicia hotel restaurant, and had a wonderful meal. The hotel is fantastic. Do yourself a favour, pay a little bit more and stay at the Phoenicia, it's well worth the extra expense.

"Poor hotel with mosquito laden rooms"
Although the hotel is well located and the staff try and do bits and bobs but the hotel is full of problems. We checked in at 0300 in the morning as the flight was late and then the car rental at the airport was delayed and upon arrival we were offered a room which had no windows, the air con was not working and the bed sheets / pillows were unwashed, dirty and blemished. We felt so suffocated in that room and there were doors being banged early on in the morning without any concern for the guests. The next day however we were offered a second room though only on our asking but it was from the frying pan into the fire. The room had a mosquito nest behind the cupboard / wardrobe and both of us have ended up with very painful and swollen itchy bites - me with around a 8/10 bites and my other half with around two dozen bites - al of which we have taken photos off. Worst still, that night we ran out of drinking water and I called the chap at the reception if the hotel could bring us a couple of bottles of water from the pantry and he rudely told me that he could not and that I would have to go to the 6th floor to the vending machine. As I was in my night suit, I again requested him be he rudely refused saying that he cannot leave the reception under no circumstance. I ventured to the sixth floor in my night suit and found that there was no vending machine inside the sixth floor nor were there any signs. I had to go down at the reception to ask and I was rudely again told to go

"Very welcoming and friendly"
All staff at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming. The only problem we had was when we had an evening meal in the hotel . We found the head waiter rather rude on that occasion and not concerned with giving his clients a good time. We had a lovely 4 days away with sunny weather and lots to do. The hotel osborne was well placed for the city of Valetta making travel and transport very easy. Overall we really liked the hotel. The only area of concern was the large marble step inside the lobbyist's. We both fell over this on occasion, with no alcohol consumed! We feel this step should be more clearly marked.

this is the first time that i got very disappointed with Hotels.com because of the information.on this hotel. the location was quite a walk to Ledra. infor on smoking permission was not correct. i smoke and since the info on Osborne gave a smoking option, i immediately took it but when i got to the hotel, they said it's non-smoking! i should have continued my stay in Phoenicia then, where a balcony was provided! since i already paid for it and cannot refund, i stayed! they said that i can smoke outside the window which was ok for the night! then when i woke up in the morning, i saw black water coming out from the bath tub drainage! Yuck! another thing, no complimentary water and internet is for a fee! the only thing they said that all these, Hotels.com knows!

Had worse but nothing to worry if missed. Usual things available from a buffet breakie. Well topped up all the time even if you are late down you wouldn't miss out. most staff ok bar one on reception.she may have had a bad day but...... still feel best option in valletta.not cheap and they still charge for internet.bit old fashioned and should be part of the £100+ per night charge.

"Disappointing"
My standard room was very small and Pokey with barely enough room for bags and towels, the split AC unit was extremely noisy and in a very poor condition (broken louvers and dirty), but if you did turn it off the noise from outside in the central atrium was even more unbearable, an industrial hum 24/7 from large (not maintained) outdoor AC units, I was in a room at the back of the hotel with a view overlooking this dirty and dingy central atrium (as were plenty of other poor saps). No fridge or minibar (unless requested days in advance), water can be purchased from a vending machine, that’s it; food very average. For the price I’d expect much better than this. Plus points are the rooftop pool (very small though) and the location. I won’t be going back; but if your only interested in the local architecture and history and aren't too bothered about sleeping this is the place for you.

Probably as good a location as you can get, so long as you benefit from a room with the most impressive view. We didn't eat at the hotel, since there are so many good retaraunts nearby. I would seriously recommend that anyone contemplating staying in Malta that they use Valletta as a base. Frankly it is a sophisticated city and infinitely nicer than some of the other more brash modern resorts.
