Excellent4.0 / 5
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.

Not Quite 5 Star
Very interesting rooms that need some updating. Very poor service at 5 star restaurant. Quite nice staff for the most part.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Lovely hotel typical of Relais & Chateaux
We reserved a duplex room, not realizing that the bedroom and bathroom were on different levels. They were accommodating, and put us in an upgraded room, but at a higher cost. The hotel is beautiful, and the surroundings in Mdina were spectacular. Dinner at De Mondion was good but not outstanding.

Good3.0 / 5
Xara Palace pretty but not worth the price
Mdina is a beautiful place to stay. Very quiet so you have to take a bus or taxi into Valletta. Hotel was clean but smelled so bad of mold. we complained and they tried to do something but I don't know what. We had a room out on the deck of the restaurant so you had people eating their dinner and breakfast right outside your door. Don't think I would want that room again although the view was good. Service was great. Everyone was very professional and courteous.
