    The bathroom door not close properly, closet door make loud noise during closing and opening. The elevator operated slowly, the street in front of the hotel flooded severely. The bathroom floor was ice cold and slippery and slippers were not provided. The room was not cleaned until we asked which was in the late afternoon.

    The people of Malta in general are very kind and that's what I love about Malta. The room service needs better management. The breakfast is standard and boring everyday is exactly the same thing and is only good for European traveller no consideration to other ethnic groups

    Good location. Big rooms. Excellent water pressure. Two different front desk personnel offered extremely terrible directions to a nearby beach-there isn't one. Another suggested we visit a town that had no shops or open restaurants (maybe two). Oh yeah! One night, there was no water-no shower, no toilet-this had been a very hot, sunny day.

    I can't say that I'd recommend this hotel. Certainly not an inland view room. It was dark and stuffy, the bed was not very comfortable, and the room turns its air conditioning off every time you leave the room, so you return from a hot summer day to a stuffy hot room. The concierge was very hit or miss... One set sent me to a bank to exchange money that doesn't exchange money, and was rude about hearing my complaints about my room. Another was kind and courteous, helping me with my requests. Overall, not worth the money. I recommend staying in Valetta.

    Internet was very intermittent, going down for days at one point. Biggest issue was one of 2 elevators was out (for a 2 week stay), no work being done on it, sometimes it took 15 minutes to get downstairs. Smell of paint/bleach some mornings. On the positive side, good location and air conditioning worked great.
