This is a wonderful European Hotel in the grand tradition of hotels.

The staff are unfailingly polite and helpful.

Seaside views of the harbour are beutiful particularly at sunset.

Breakfast comes with great coffee as well.

Hotel is geared to businesses and conferences but also manages holiday makers well. Breakfast had numerous choices - everything fresh and if wanted cooked to order. Wouldn't want to stay in a room that didn't overlook the harbour as side and back views very uninspiring. Helpful courteous staff.

Room Tip: Always book rooms with a harbour view - which are more expensive of course.

I am writing this whilst still in the hotel. There are only two 5 star hotels in Valletta to choose from and we got a decent deal here. The hotel is very traditional in the interior, a bit breeze block on the exterior. The location is as good as you can get in Valletta but by no means a short walk to the old town because of the hills and steps. If you are well fit, no problem but my partner has had a recent knee op so we needed to taxi it to the locations in the old town that we wanted to visit. Our room is a bit dated but very well maintained and large with a balcony and great view over the harbour. The breakfast buffet is quite good. The prices in the hotel are pretty high, if European you will think ok can swallow but if from the usa I think that that you will consider OTT. All in all we are comfortable here.

Can't believe some of the negative reviews I've read - don't believe them, this hotel is fabulous. The only thing I would criticize are the number of steps leading to and from the road. We had a double deluxe room with balcony overlooking the pool and sea on the 3rd floor. The balcony was spacious and completely private. The room was large and well furnished with comfortable queen size bed. Plenty cupboards and wardrobe space. Wifi excellent in the room and all over the hotel, down to the man made beach. Breakfast was a large buffet style with a cook on hand to cook pancakes, omelettes and eggs any way you wanted. Housekeeping were excellent, calling again in the evening to offer anything we were short of, or replacing towels for the second time in the day. A good menu available at the poolside snack bar at reasonable prices all through the day. Plenty of sunloungers with waiters on hand to bring drinks and food to you. All the staff at the hotel were very helpful, cheerful and polite. One evening we had the buffet restaurant meal which at 30 Euros I thought was a little expensive and not too impressive but I understand it changes every night so maybe we were just unlucky. It wouldn't stop me from going back. I agree with a previous reviewer in that this is a 5* hotel at a 4* price.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe room with either a garden or sea view

Stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed it.

Check in was not good. Receptionists all looking down, no greeting. They preauthorised the whole cost of the stay on the credit card plus EUR50 per day for “guarantee”. Worth thinking about if you are using a prepay card. This included a EUR5 as a deposit for the key card – never seen that before and did not give a good first impression of the hotel.

The room was a partial sea view which had a great view of the pool and sea. The room was large, bed very comfy and all spotlessly clean. As with a previous reviewer, our headboard was ripped and the desk chair worn. Not acceptable at the cost paid for the room. Daily free water was nice to have.

Breakfast was good – loads to choose from. However, there was a daily battle to get coffee. The waiting staff make no eye contact and we had to get up and go over to them every day to get coffee. It’s not the greatest coffee so don’t know why it can’t be on the buffet with the juices etc.

Pool area was very clean and there was always somewhere to sit. It never got too busy. There’s an odd deposit system for the beach towels with a charge being made against the room and then a card that you have to give to reception to get it refunded.

Ate a couple of times at the pool area. Food was ok but took a long time to arrive. Ate a Tiki restaurant and had some very good food. Had the buffet one night – nice food and lots of choice.

Would stay here again but would make sure that the room was one of the refurbed ones.
