Malta holiday
Good location in Sliema for public transportation, either bus or ferry. You can easily go to Valletta or St Julian using public transit. There are numerous walkable restaurants and shopping areas. Breakfast was good and you have a really great view of the harbor. The room we were given was in the area of the hotel that was being renovated. Our carpet seemed old and had some worn areas. The gym needs additional equipment and it closes early at 7pm.

Besides the stains of paint in the rug everything else was good. Breakfast was ok typical European style. Location was great, on block down and you have the tour guides and boat tours... plenty of restaurants close and local transportation.

Great hotel in great location
Slight issue on check in when we were given the incorrect room, but it was fixed by reception staff who were so helpful. Hotel location is great for exploring Malta on foot. Justin the barman in the Lobby bar was great fun and gave us great local tips on what to do and see. Overall we loved our stay and will definitely return to this hotel when we come back to Malta. Book a sea view room, the view of Sliema Harbour and the Valletta skyline is worth it.

Worth staying, ideal location for food and travel.
Great location. Room good size. Nice balcony. Decent breakfast. Issue was the bathroom. Good size but smelled of drainage. Door was locked and only 2 nights so wasn’t worth bothering to change. Bed was comfortable. Uk plugs can be used. Service was very pleasant, reception and requests all catered for.

All good except room service
Only let-up was room service. No answer when I rang... and while you're ask to call the front desk as an alternative, their only recourse was to send me back to the line with no answer. If there's not going to be anyone to pick up - why even have the number available for guests to call?
