Truly lovely hotel
I very much enjoyed this hotel. The staff is very service-forward and helpful. It's quite lovely, the rooms are well-appointed and stylishly decorated. The location is fantastic. My only complaint was that the working condition of all electronic components in the rooms should be checked out - not all of the light switches worked and sometimes the tv would not turn on. But these are really minor complaints, as I would still choose to stay here again on a future visit to Valletta.

The hotel staff were incredibly helpful and polite. Our rental car fell through at the last minute and the hotel arranged for a car to be delivered to the hotel for us within a few hours. Breakfast was perfect. Highly recommend!

Great clean, modern hotel in good location
Staff was very helpful and attentive. Rooms were modern, clean, and comfortable. Walls were a bit thin so you could hear your neighbors. Otherwise, everything was great and convenient.
