The Waterfront Hotel, Sliema
Shabby, Overpriced and Overrated Hotel
First off, booked a double bed for my wife and I - as we were checking us in they noted we were both women and asked us if we were sure we wanted the same bed. This was after they quietly conversed amongst themselves. Rude and awkward and, I think, there are many less rude ways to confirm that we had booked a double bed. Secondly I had booked a "deluxe seaview" room - the room they offered us was on the side of the hotel, so most of our view was of the building across the street. They changed rooms for us but only after I complained. Thirdly, the hotel was in seriously rundown condition, a total ripoff for the 4-star rating and price. Lastly, the breakfast buffet was terrible, nothing inspiring or particularly tasty. One more thing, the pool access closed at 6pm. Ridiculous!

Good location for the price. Beautiful views if your room looks out on to the water. Large selection for breakfast. Room furnishings are a bit worn and dated. A/C was terrible- even at full blast it was still warm in the room. Staff wasn't rude but they always seemed a bit distracted and didn't go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Short Business Trip
Hassle free stay for business. Rooms are comfortable with good amenities, breakfast was fine with a lovely view, wifi works without problems. The hotel has nearly finished a major refurbishment, but there was no disruption during my stay. The location was convenient, but everywhere is in Malta. It is located in a tourist area and I cannot vouch for the summer peak, but I would consider again as very good value.

Decent hotel let down by poorly executed renovatio
Newly renovated but poorly executed. Paint stains all over the place and and poor fitting of a lot of pieces. Breakfast was a big letdown. Quality over quantity is an advice. Room was clean but had poor lighting over workspace. Poor evacuation of moist in the bathroom. Good location, friendly staff but needs more attention to the execution of the renovation which appears to be nearly completed. In my view a decent 3 star hotel with room for improvement but not a 4 star hotel.
