"Book a room with a balcony"
The hotel is located in the Kappara neighbourhood of San Gwann. Near the hotel is a bus station that connects this area with St.Julian (bus 120) and with Valletta (bus 24) but these routes are operated only once every hour. For better connections with other areas there is a bus station at Mater Dei (10 minutes walk). The rooms are clean and the staff […] is very attentive and helpful but book a room with a balcony. The ones without balcony are located at the ground floor and there is too noisy, you can hear everything from reception or from the restaurant. The rooms facing the pool are the best! I recommend this hotel but only for the upgraded rooms, with a balcony. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice small hotel, breakfast has place to improve"
The hotel is small and gives some family atmosphere. However the breakfast is disapionting even as continental one.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good all round"
What it states on its website is what you get plus a service from all staff that highlights their excellent and friendly manner. Room very clean, air con a silent efficient welcome, breakfast basic continental but plenty of it. Pool very clean and big enough for that refreshing dip. Location is not central as they point out on their website but easy […] to hire a car which is a great way to see the islands and all they have to offer. We will return. The kitchenette well worth the 10 euro a week cost. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel very close to university; nice staff"
There is nothing fancy about hotel Kappara, however the rooms provide the minimum comfort necessary for a pleasant stay. The staff is super kind and friendly. The hotel is situated very close to the university and hospital and is a short bus ride away from the "fun centre" Paceville and the nice St. Julian's and Spinola bays. The rooms have AC which […] is a must for Malta. The hotel also has a small pool. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly and comfortable th stay at."
The hotel was comfortable to stay at and I would stay there again. I stayed at two rooms in my on time there. One on ground Level and the other other on first level. I found it better to pay the extra €10 to stay on the upstairs level to have a balcony and its much more quite. There is an extra fee to have the kitchenette open in the room which wasn't […] that much but it didn't have a kettle which was the main reason I wanted it. The location is about 10mins by bus to Valetta but the bus stops in take a little walking too and need a little laction discovery to find. It's good once you understand how the area works in terms of bus stops but initially It can be a bit frustrating. Other wise it's a good place to stay. Clean, fairly new, quite spot and the people are helpful and friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely friendly quiet hotel"
A really friendly hotel where nothing was too much trouble. It's a quiet place which is why we chose it but very accessible by bus and cheap taxis to elsewhere (Its about 20 euros to Valletta from there. Rooms were basic, but clean and comfortable. Could do with a kettle and a fridge but guess you'd pay more for a hotel with those amenities.Main improvement […] would be the breakfasts as very basic, such as adding yogurts and fruit salad. Pool is great and very refreshing after sight seeing, a great place and excellent value for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great little hotel, friendly and helpful staff, still new enough to be pretty tidy (mold around shower tray first sign of aging).

"Perfectly adequate and very clean hotel"
The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff are polite friendly and helpful, but its situation is somewhat off the beaten track. There is a good ten minute walk to Mater Dei hospital, but from there you can get an Arriva bus to almost anywhere on the island. The nearer buses are not very frequent and it can be quite complicated to work out where […] you are going - bus drivers do not know the names of the stops. The breakfast is simple:- rolls fruit, ham, cheese, cereals, juices and tea or coffee. You can pay an extra 6 euros for a cooked breakfast and they do offer a three course evening meal for 15 euros if you want it. I don't know what that was like as we went out. The bathroom we had offered a bath as well as a shower. There was always hot water and clean towels with soap and shampoo provided. Our only complaint was that sound echoed around the hotel, with quite a lot of banging doors and shouting in the early morning and late evening. On the whole would recommend. We didn't hire a car, but if you did there was room on the road outside. Malta is FULL of cars and traffic. Buses really are a better bet! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Troosteloos, eentonig ontbijt"
Hotel was ok maar ontbijt viel tegen: weinig keuze, veel dingen voorverpakt, geen yoghurt of fruitsla, wel stuk vers fruit. 3 dagen exact hetzelfde ontbijt.

"Mye for pengene"
Her der det meste i orden - prisen tatt i betrakning. Svært hyggelig pesonale, stille og rolig strøk, reint og pent. Emeste minus er at det kunne vært grovere bakervarer til frokost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ett litet hotell med extremt vänlig personal, bra rum och fördelaktig tillgång till pentryt för en liten summa (10 euro för en vecka). Frukosten var dock ingen höjdare men man fick kaffe, lite frukt och en bulle. Läget är också lite obekvämt och man måste promenera i ca 10 minuter för att kunna ta en buss till Valletta eller någon annanstansGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Utmärkt service, ni kommer inte att ångra er!"
Efter en sjunättersvistelse skulle jag inte tveka att välja detta hotell igen! Rummen och hotellet städas fläckfritt rent. Detta familjeägda hotell har fantastiskt trevliga människor som mer än gärna hjälper till och ger råd. Det finns kyl i varje rum som kan aktiveras för en liten kostnad och det är det verkligen värt om man vill kunna kyla vatten, […] frukt, vin etc som man kan köpa i närheten. Gällande läget så är det mest besvärliga att bussystemet är lite sådär och man bör ta buss för att ta sig in till någon av städernas kärnor för att bada, shoppa etc. Finns dock en utmärkt och prisvärd restaurang "De Malte" alldeles i närheten av hotellet, liksom en fruktbutik och LIDL. Småbutikerna säljer även lokalproducerat Maltesiskt vin som håller en mycket hög klass! Med andra ord, de flesta förnödenheter finns att nå mycket nära kring hotellet. Från flygplatsen rekommenderas det att man tar taxi till hotellet som annars kan vara svårt att hitta utan GPS första dagen sådär. Endast 28 rum på hotellet gör det ganska lugnt och mycket hemtrevligt och gemytligt. På kvällen är det vacker utsikt om man har balkong över poolen och ser huvudstadens ljus och det mycket närliggande sjukhuset. Enda att klaga på är att det står i beskrivningen att hotellet är rökfritt, men folk rökte på balkongerna eller vid poolen. Att det var rökfritt var en av de saker som annars gjorde att jag valde detta hotell. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"un hotel perfecto para visitar Malta"
Mi pareja y yo estuvimos una semana en este hotel y vinimos encantados. El personal del hotel es estupendo, especialmente el señor de recepción, q es un hombre realmente entrañable. Un auténtico encanto. El hotel está cerca de Valletta y las principales zonas d marcha pero en un zona super tranquila, cosa que se agradece si quieres descansar. La relación-precio […] es inmejorable xq además,el desayuno está incluido. Es un Buffet básico(zumo,frutas,cereales,café croissant,pan y aderezos) pero para nosotros más que de sobra. Las habitaciones, muy muy limpias y completas. La única crítica, si tenemos que decir algo, es sobre personal de limpieza que, si bien es cierto q los cuartos estaban muy limpios, ha habido un par de cosillas que no nos gustó. Por un lado, con las toallas tuvimos problemas porque aún si las dejábamos en el suelo para cambiarlas, t volvían a colocar las mismas en el cuarto de baño. Nada que no pudiésemos solucionar acudiendo a recepción quienes, amablemente, nos daban otras limpias. Y por otro lado, que la mañana del check out una de las limpiadoras, por su cuenta, nos insistió en que debíamos abandonar la habitación YA porque tenían q limpiarla para nuevos clientes, cuando aún restaban 40 minutos para la hora límite requerida por el hotel para la salida. Nada que ver con la amabilidad del resto del personal del hotel. A nosotros nos encantaria volver a Malta y sin duda alguna, éste volvería a ser nuestro hotel.

"Mõnus väike hotell"
Veetsin koos tütrega aprillis ühe nädalakese Maltal, et külastada seal elavat tütart. Peatuspaigaks valisime hotelli "Kappara". Tegemist on väikese armsa hotelliga vaikses tänavas. Esialgu sattusime kitsasse liiga hämarasse rõduta tuppa 1.korrusel (broneeringus oli kirjas,et igal toal on möbleeritud rõdu). See asub kohe köögi kõrval, kus hommikuti algasid […] askeldused juba kell 4! Kahjuks kostis kõik ka meie tuppa :( Õnneks saime kolmandal päeval toa 2. korrusele, ja sellega olime väga rahul! Rõdult avanes tore vaade ja tuba oli vaikne, avar ja puhas,samuti vannituba. Voodid olid ka mugavad. Hommikusöök, mis oli hinna sees, oli pisut ühekülgne, alati sama - sai, juust ja sink, oleks tahtnud ka tomatit, kurki vms, aga kohv oli küll võrratult maitsev! Ja puuvilju oli valida. Hotellipersonal on "Kapparas" super, kõik väga sõbralikud, viisakad ja abivalmid ning alati naeratavad! Kui järgmisel korral Maltale tulen ning veel tütre juures ööbida ei saa, valin kindlasti peatuspaigaks taas selle hotelli ! Ja julgen seda ka sõpradele soovitada. Lihtsalt ärge võtke tuba 1.korrusele, kõrgemal on vaiksem ja rahulikum! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Everything we wanted and more"
08/10/14 Tillly Suffolk
Emailed before departure for info excellent response. Hotel as it advertises. Very clean, friendly staff, good continental breakfast, AC in bedroom silent and easy to work, Lovely pool to enjoy bar service if you want it. Yes the hotel is outside major tourist areas but that to us was a good thing. Car hire recommended for seeing Malta and all it has to offer. We eat out in various villages, towns, beach cafés, restaurants and the food was good and well priced. I have travelled extensively overseas both in my line of work and pleasure stayed in everything from a hostel to 5 star hotel, villa to cruise on the Nile .... Malta has delivered a 10 out of 10 from the Maltese themselves with their hospitality and standards. Never felt ripped off or uneasy. Hotel Kappara and Malta was for us the perfect holiday. Others at the hotel seemed to enjoy its service to be they Italian, French, Spanish, Danish, American, Dutch or Swedish.

Nice, quiet place. Loved everything, staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and had everything we need it. Breakfast perfect (coffee can be a bit better! or have a choice). Loved coming back to the room in the afternoon and enjoy the peace.. Everything is close by by bus, rent a car for convenience, plenty of parking outside.
"Great hotel for students "
06/04/14 jwillstp Germantown, Tennessee
Stayed at the Hotel Kappara with a group of students for the second time. Chris was wonderful to work with setting up our arrangements. Maria and Maria were wonderful during the day and helped with anything that we needed. The accommodations are simple but spacious for European standards. Very close to the hospital and university and easy to walk there. Convenient to many bus lines. Excellent breakfast. The bathroom has a little issue with some mold and mildew but that could easily be addressed. I would not hesitate to return. Exceptional value.

They kept the chef on for our late arrival so 3 of us could have dinner. Hotel is spotlessly clean. My mother (75) could walk to main street for dinner in evening. Has a pool which I used (still freezing), free wifi was good for general broadband but too slow for films. Only had three english channels, CNN, Euronews + Eurosport. Breakfast is typical european style, plentiful but coffee & tea in thermal flasks were usually cold, replaced if requested. Email requests were quickly responded to. Air conditioning is excellent. If window closed outside sounds totally obliterated. But inside hotel noise seemed to be amplified! I was going to give it 5 stars as it's only a 3 star hotel and I think the price was excellent. However, there are two houses being built across the road and there is noise when the windows were open or when sitting outside headphones were a must. Staff are very friendly + helpful.
"Small and Friendly!"
05/14/13 CWade Bramhall, Cheshire
Hotel Kappara is a small and friendly place. It's perfectly situated for anyone that needs to be near the university or the new Mater Dei hospital in the residential area of Kappara. It's located on quite a steep hill so someone with walking difficulties may have problems and it’s approximately a 10 minute walk to a bus stop which is served regularly. The hotel recommends that you walk 10 minutes to the hospital to get on a bus but we found walking into San Gwann offered all the bus routes we needed including St Julians, Sliema and Valetta. It also allowed us to buy our breakfast along the way as there are plenty of shops in San Gwann. The nightlife district of Paceville in San Giljan is about a 5 minute taxi ride away. The rooms were spacious and kept spotlessly clean and also for €10 a week there is a tiny kitchenette (which looks more like a wardrobe!) containing a small cooker, sink and fridge, which they will unlock for you to use, which means anyone on a budget can self-cater. Our room overlooked the pool and the valley beyond and the balcony had a table and chairs and was lovely and sunny. There is a lovely little pool and terrace area with views over the valley and the sunbeds are new and modern. There are also washrooms and an outside shower which looked very clean and modern. I can't comment on the breakfast as we were room only but you have to walk through the dining room to get to the pool and the food looked fresh and plentiful. We ordered cappuccinos and toasties and they were reasonably priced for a hotel along with the local beer Cisk! The staff are lovely and very helpful and they are what make this place even more of a hidden gem. The only downside to the hotel in my opinion was the lack of sound-proofing and so it could get a little noisy when younger clientele returned from the nightclubs or the staff were setting up for breakfast but next time I would ask for a room on a higher floor! But do your research first in terms of location. The hotel was perfect for us and it more than fulfilled our expectations but this obviously won't be the same for everyone.
"My best HOME in Malta"
04/19/13 marinka_ilmondo Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
I would like to thank you to all staffs at hotel Kappara who have accommodated me for three weekes. Back office staffs were efficient and very quick to response, hotel staffs were extremely kind and genuinely kind & warm! I had my tears in my eyes when I left this hotel... this place became my home in Malta and I would love to stay again if I have a chance to return to Malta. It's a 3-start hotel; you get everything you would expect from 3-start hotel! I stayed in a room with a balcony - I enjoyed looking at the sky everyday. I had a self-catering kitchen - it was just perfect for me to prepare lunch & dinner every day. There is a foldable desk - this was again just perfect for me as I had to study 7hrs per day in the room. Everything was comfortable. The only wish was to have a bathtub to soak into... but as I wanted to be environmentally friendly, a shower was good enough. (some rooms have bathtub and some are only shower) The Room was always cleaned up perfectly. Staffs at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful - We always had nice chats in the morning and when I come back from my yoga training - I missed them a lot. - Breakfast is simple but I saw some people ordered British breakfast and the hotel prepared it on request. - Sitting in the patio is always nice and relaxing. - Sound proof can be improved but as far as all guests & staffs are aware to keep quiet in the evening, there is not much sound to disturb (or just bring ear plugs, just in case). I also had nice opportunities to have words with other guests. If you stay with open-heart, you will meet other wonderful guests! This place is often used for students as the location is very convenient for those who go to the University of Malta (or language schools). This makes the hotel absolutely vibrant! There are some supermarkets and small shops in the town (people are extremely kind! my favorites were a delicatessen in Vegimania supermaket & Sicilian food shop) Buses run quite frequently. Taxi btw St. Julian is around EUR 8-10. On the last day, I stayed in a 5-star hotel in Sliema but I missed Hotel Kappara a lot as I never felt that I was alone at Kappara. Hotel Kappara is the hotel that can full fill value for money and they have more to offer. Massive THANK YOU to Hotel Kappara!!! and I want to go back again soon!
03/29/13 Anne S S Winchester, United Kingdom
The staff at the Hotel Kappara are truly amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and things are done with pleasantness and graciousness. The hotel is clean and the rooms nicely furnished. The meals are also good. The downside, which staff can do nothing about, is that the hotel rooms and corridors have no soundproofing and so voices, even when people are not being excessively noisy, reverberate throughout the hotel. This can be somewhat disturbing late at night, or early in the morning. Having said that, I would go back again, simply because there is such a delightful attmosphere.
"Currently staying there - just what you want"
01/28/13 Tori K San Gwann, Malta
I'm currently staying at the Hotel Kappara. The staff are very helpful and kind. the room is clean and spacious, much bigger than I expected. The pool isn't open until April according to the sign, which is a pity but looks like it would be lovely when it is a bit warmer. Breakfast is what you would expect, cereals, pastries, fruit, tea, coffee, juice etc. They do offer full english for an extra 6 euros, but there are cafes near by which offer it cheaper (however I don't know what it is like). I have slept brilliantly since I've been here. There is a self catering option, but you have to pay for that. The area isn't great if you are on foot, but there are buses nearby so it is completely possible to still get around and enjoy this beautiful island. There is also free wifi, make sure you ask for the password and username! The hotel is not amazing, but it's exactly what you would expect and want from a 3* hotel.
