The hotel logation was perfect with great view overlooking the Grand harbour The accommodation was fine and the prise was little bit expensive according to the standart of the hotel. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ok, on terrace with a view. Friendly service.

I've read some mixed reviews about this hotel but found, for a two star rated hotel, that it had everything we needed. We arrived at the hotel early and the staff on reception were more than happy to hurry along the cleaning of our room so that we could get inside for a desperately needed shower. During our two day...

We stayed in a superior sea view room on the 3.rd floor. We had a huge balcony/terrasse with sunbeds and 2 sittingarears (balcony about 50 sqm) to share with another room with fantastic view over the Grand Harbour, but we never met other people on the balcony/terrasse. We became fantastic service over all, and booked directly at the hotel. We...

Reservations were easy and reliable, as we arrived in the middle of the night and they arranged a taxi and had excellent front desk staff. Family room was huge, with balconies in both rooms overlooking gorgeous harbour--amazing location in middle of Valletta. Rooms were old-school and very warm and basic, but functional. Breakfast was pretty bad but free and again,...

Thank you for all your comments. I was not sure what you meant regarding the family room you had as it was refurbshied about four years ago . I also assume that you probably were expecting a cooked english breakfast and not a complimentary continental that we offer with the rate. As to be honest our complimentary breakfast is pretty...

This is a pretty standard old fashioned hotel in Valetta. We had to pay extra for AC (7 euros/24 hours) but it is very clean and the breakfast with the Grand Harbour view is decent. The staff in the hotel are very friendly. We decided before going to pay a little extra for the Sea view room which we were...

I want to thank you for your comments and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes unfortunately we have to charge extra for the A/C as electricity prices have really shot up in Malta and we feel that its better to give a choice to the guest if they want it then just put the price of the room...

Reviewed 5 July 2011

The British Hotel is accessed from the centre of Valletta down some steep roads and steps, which presents an energetic climb in the opposite direction. No-one can fault it's views across the harbour, with its constantly changing shipping passing by, although the overnight dredging digger during our stay was very noisy. The view is enjoyed from the first-floor restaurant and...

Great views looking over the harbour, cold beer on the balcony of the restaurant and friendly staff. 30 second walk from the heart of Valetta, so easy to get to places, but wasn't noisy (well, apart from the passing cruise ship at 8am!) Recommended in Lonely planet, by a friend of mine and now by me!

This hotel is a basic bed and breakfast and we liked it very much. It was clean and had everything that we required. We liked the friendlyness of all the staff and nothing was too much trouble for them. The view from the balcony was unbelievable and we had the same glorious view from the restaurant. The beds were comfortable...

A basic hotel with fantastic views across Grand Harbour to the Three Cities. Wake up and see a massive cruise ship passing just yards from your window. The staff are friendly. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The restaurant is excellent with Maltese cooking. Rabbit dishes/ Octopus stew and also excellent stakes. Make sure you get a terrace table.

We booked at the British Hotel in order to be in Valetta. It is situated just 5 minutes from the St John Co-Cathedral and from all central attractions. In case someone has a room with a view, then that is really worth. As the building is old, the rooms are neither modern nor very comfortable. The breakfast is rather elementary,...
