Wonderful hotel with great location. Just wish the AIr conditioning worked better in the room.

You don’t necessarily get what you pay for
This place is nice. However, our air condition did not work for our week long stay. When we mentioned it to the front desk, they sent someone up to “fix it,” but the guy did not do much and we suffered long, hot nights after spending our days out and about in the Malta heat. Also, when we had arrived, we were told breakfast was included due to the amount of days we were staying. One morning, I went down for some coffee, and was told breakfast was not included, which was a bummer since I woke up early for that. Aside from those two issues, I would say the place was nice and clean.

Wonderful location .. clean .. great staff

Great place to stay and amazing breakfast
This was a great place to stay, only 5 minutes walk from the waterfront to 3 sides. We could see the sea from our room on the 4th floor. Top floor bar and swimming pool, great to hang out and relax in the evening. Amazing breakfast, even with prosecco!

Outstanding service, especially from Simba at the front desk and Esther in the dining room. All staff very accommodating and try their best to ensure one is comfortable and happy. Well done !!! Thank you.

Very good value for money
Excellent service, nice facilities. The gym is well-equipped and the indoor pool is fine. The Asian restaurant on the top floor is quite cheap, with very nice food and splendid view. Unfortunately, some of the lounges/bars are closed in the winter season, and that was a bit missing in the evening.

Excellent hotel, all aspects!
I'm so glad we selected this hotel! We reserved superior room and got an upgraded superior room om the 7th floor. The room was huge, with a nice view. The choice of Sliema area where the hotel is located was perfect for us - short walking distance to the Valletta ferry and a very pleasant and quiet neighborhood. I enjoyed the pool and the views from the roof very much. Breakfast (included) was rich and excellent. Very good air conditioning, wi-fi was a bit weak except for one corner inside the room. Staff was very nice and helpful. I strongly recommend this hotel!

Location was good but the hotel is older and room was dusty. Beds are too soft. Avoid the 8th floor due to noise from pool level above and the spa next door. Service and food were fine. Good staff and helpful concierge.
