Beautiful & Unique Option with tons of Character
We LOVED our stay at Xara Palace in Mdina. We were shocked at how beautiful the entrance to the hotel was and how friendly the check-in staff was. We loved our room with the terrace hottub and would recommend this place to the adventurous couple looking for something with more character than the Hilton.

Very Good8.0
Fabulous corner of Malta
The Xara has many good features: very capable, courteous and straightforward staff, an outstanding location near the gate into Medina, at least one fantastic restaurant and views for miles. That said, it is an old structure, so don't expect polished surfaces and sleek lines. Overall, it was our favorite hotel in Malta. Highly recommended.

Offbeat luxury in Historic Mdina
This converted palace is an extraordinary place with lots of character and a distinctive feeling of slightly faded luxury. The restaurant on the upper balcony with a panoramic view of Malta is unforgettable. Food is superb but was that a pot of instant coffee we were served at breakfast? Also, jazz-light Muzak detracted from the aristocratic and historic atmosphere. Service was especially gracious. A truly singular and charming place.
