6/10 Good

We arrived at 8 PM, we found the hotel's door locked and a paper indicating to go to the hotel across the street. We didn't stay in the hotel we booked and we weren't informed about it before! The breakfast was served in another different hotel. The room was spacious but all the equipments were very old and outdated. In the shower the water's pressure was very weak. The TV didn't work the first night and they didn't fix it until we insisted the second night.. We asked the reception what bus we shall take to go to Gozo's ferry and they gave us inaccurate information. A last thing is that they promised to give us a breakfast box as we were leaving early to the airport the following morning, then they changed their mind and resigned. This is not a big deal, only if they said it earlier... By the time we got back to the hotel, all the stores were closed and we spent a long time starving with no food!

10/10 Exceptional

A gem on the island of Malta
The staff were super friendly and accommodating and the room was very adequate for the price , there was an issue with some noisy kids but when it was made known to the staff they took care of it. Breakfast was great and plentiful offered all the standard breakfast fare you'd expect and was tasty too. Staff really knew the area recommending a few places when i needed recommendations and it was nice that when a staff member passed you by wherever they always smiled and said hello and when you asked something of a staff member they were more then happy to try an accommodate your request
