We decided on a week in Sliema to celebrate a big birthday. The hotel had upgraded us to a superior garden room and in spite of some prior misgivings after reading quite a few of negative reviews we had a great time. Pluses, location, food generally. Minuses, the usual gripe, could do with a higher wattage bedside light, they need... More

We spent a week in the 4*Fortina. Sliema is very well located for exploring Malta - good and frequent public buses, hop-on-hop-off buses and ferries. Malta and Gozo are great. we arrived late at night and our room had the requested sea view over beautiful Valetta, but in the morning we saw how tiny, shabby and miserably dark it was.... More

A pleasant stay but we upgraded to a superior garden view room which was well worth the 8 euros a day. Food was good but the staff in the Chinese restaurant were not very polite or helpful. The staff in Taste were excellent as was the food. The disappointment was the high cost of wi-fi in the room although free... More

The location of this hotel could not be better. First there is the great view across the harbour looking at Valetta. The hotel is a two minute walk away from the main shopping mall and a five minute walk away from the Valetta boat taxi service and the various boat rides around the harbour, around Malta etc etc. If you...
