Very friendly and helpful staff. Loved our room with a nice view of the city and sea - balcony too. Very comfortable room with good-sized bathroom. Enjoyed the gym - didn’t use the indoor or outdoor pools but both very nice. Good location - walk to stores and restaurants.

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.

Exceptional 10.0
The property is very nice and the front staff (Stephanie, Stefan and I forgot the night time staff) were extremely helpful and nice. Made our trip very pleasant since we were only there for two days. The only dislike the pools close at 2000hrs which isn't the best because you don't really get to experience the beautiful sunset and scenery.

Room did not have a window that faced the outside. The window faced the inside of the same building. The A/C did not work. Technician tried to fix it but it did not cool down very much. We could not sleep because it was hot.

The AX, Palace hotel is in an excellent location. The service is generous and above standard. Unfortunately I was NOT offered an upgrade and when addressed it was downplayed by the Management. They have excellent people doing great work, it is unfortunate that premium access is not considered.
